Aasif Mandvi interviews Fox Business commentator, Todd Wilemon.
"Why are you poor? Stop being poor. Be rich like me!" - Fox News commentators, GOP congressmen, and late night informercials on real estate flipping.
"Rajesh Kumar is a shopkeeper by profession but spends hours every morning teaching around 80 children from the poorest of the poor in India’s capital. The 43-year-old visited the construction of the Delhi transit station a few years ago and was disturbed by the sight of many children playing at the site instead of attending school.
When he questioned the parents working at the sites they all said there were no schools in the vicinity and no one cared. Consequently, his open-air class room was born - between pillars and beneath the tracks of the Delhi transit system, known as the Metro.
Every few minutes a train passes above, the children unperturbed by its sounds. There are no chairs or tables and the children sit on rolls of polystyrene foam placed on the rubble. Three rectangular patches of wall are painted black and used as a blackboard.
Anonymous donors have contributed cardigans, books, shoes and stationery for the children, as their parents cannot afford them. One unnamed individual sends a bag full of biscuits and fruit juice for the pupils every day - another incentive for the children to turn up for their studies.”
Thank you, frenchchairs.

As a class, men have developed an entrenched system of power called patriarchy in order to naturalize exploitation of women’s bodies, labor, time, children, and…
It makes me happy knowing that someone had to animate that.
I swear to god, some feminists are more annoying than Jehovah Witnesses. Stop fighting problems that don’t exist. It’s about gender equality, not all about “women’s rights”.
Please explain the difference between gender equality and women’s rights.
Please give examples of problems that not longer exist that modern feminists are fighting.
"Greek myths mention several Islands of Women, where Amazons lived without men, only consorting with neighboring colonies of males at certain seasons when they wanted to conceive their children. Taurus, Lemnos, and Lesbos were said to be such all-female societies. The Greeks apparently feared them. They said the women of Taurus sacrificed to their Goddess all men who landed on their shores; and the women of Lemnos had risen up against their husband and murdered all of them at once. The Greek writers seemed to have no doubt that women could destroy whole populations of adult males, and there was no effective defense against them."

I want this so much
Now you why theres an Oscar for best musical score and sound editing, it makes all the difference….also a good reminder that while all kinds of Deeply Important Stuff was happening in HP, so was all the normal angsty weird teen stuff too.
Why does it always seem pathetic when a girl is in love with a boy who doesn’t love her back, and romantic and heartbreaking when a boy loves a girl who doesn’t love him

hahahaha fight homophobia with even more homophobia lol get it? it’s funny cause he’s GAY
The entire “homophobes are just in the closet!” rhetoric is fucked up and infuriating.
No, straight people. You don’t get to just laugh off any and all homophobes by saying “oh, hahahahaha, they are secretly gay!” Do SOME LGBTQIAP+ people struggle with internalized queerphobia? Yes. But you know what?
A lot of straight people are fucking awful homophobes. A LOT of straight people are nasty stinking bigots, not just ‘in the closet.’ You don’t get to act like STRAIGHT PEOPLE aren’t the problem here. You are.
And fighting homophobes with “ahahahah they’re just gay” comments is super shitty. You don’t fight homophobia WITH MORE HOMOPHOBIA YOU RIDICULOUS FUCK TRUCKS.
Anonymous asked: to terminate a pregnancy for all women. You will never understand how difficult it can be for some women. You don't know their story. So stop assuming they are just "murderers".
I understand that people get raped, and these things happen. Under some circumstances, I can understand the need for an abortion. But for something as simple as the fact that you can’t afford it, that’s why there is adoption. People act like abortion is their only option just because they don’t want to go through the trouble of carrying a baby. If you choose to just kill a baby just because its inconvenient for you, that is when it becomes a problem with me. Adoption exists for a reason, some people just don’t want to carry their babies full term because its a “bad time”.
"I don’t understand the serious complications- both physical and mental that can arise from pregnancy.
I also don’t respect or understand bodily autonomy.
But here’s my opinion on what other people should do with their body and why you’re a murderer if you disagree”
Once more- anti choicers do not give one fuck about pregnant people, as if that surprises us. - Leigh
Does this person realize there are already 500,000 kids already in need of adoption in America? There are already a plethora of kids who need parents, and throwing another kid into the mix is not a decision to be taken lightly.
Anti-choice people are so simple minded, they never think of long-term repercussions for anything.
hey what if someone invented a machine that allowed women to transfer their pregnancies to men and then the government passed a law that if a woman didn’t want to have a baby the biological father was required to carry it how fast do you think birth control would stop being an issue
