The Equality Illusion (via lesilencieux)
BUT SEXISM ISN’T REAL Y’ALL WE’RE JUST MAKING IT UP. THIS ISN’T LITERAL OBJECTIFICATION. NAH. (via longdivisionnnn)
Horrified but not suprised. Not in the least.
Okay, I’m all for showing that sexism exists, but come on guys, a little bit of critical thinking here would go a long way.
Please people, do not take these type of ‘scientific’ articles to heart. Think critically, because as dramatic as this finding sounds, it has absolutely no weight.(via tedbunny)

On December 6th, 1989, shortly before five ‘o’ clock and the end of classes before Christmas break, fourteen female engineering students were shot and killed at the École Polytechnique in Montreal, Quebec by a gunman who claimed he was “fighting feminism”.
The massacre stands as one of the most tragic hate crimes in Canadian history.

A small clarification: 12 were engineering students, 1 was a nursing student, and 1 was a university employee. (I got curious and did some research about this event.)
