One would assume that scientists, who are trained to think objectively, are completely immune to gender discrimination. However, a recent Yale study by Corinne Moss-Racusin and colleagues suggests otherwise.
The researchers created a fictional student and sent out the student’s application to science professors at top, research-intensive universities in the United States. The professors were asked to evaluate how competent this student was, how likely they would be to hire the student, how much they would pay this student, and how willing they would be to mentor the student. All of the applications sent out were identical, except for the fact that half were for a male applicant, John, and half were for a female applicant, Jennifer. Results showed that, with statistical significance, both male and female faculty at these institutions were biased towards male students over female students.
Data from the study shows that on average, science faculty was willing to pay the male applicant about $4,000 more per year. source

"The gender gap doesn’t exist" 
"We don’t need feminism" 
"Maybe he just worked harder"
"*any MRA bullshit*"

I had to read this study for class. It is thorough as fuck.

I want to make a few things perfectly clear. Trans women are women. Period. End of story. We’re not “women who used to be men.” We’re not “men who identify as women.” We’re not “males who identify as women.” We’re not “men who became women.” WE ARE WOMEN. Stop putting qualifiers on our womanhood. It’s offensive, hurtful and cruel to insinuate otherwise. Our past, present, and futures are ours to define and no one else’s. Even if we didn’t figure out that we were trans until well into our adult lives, it absolutely does not mean that we were ever boys or men. Many trans women female that they’ve always been girls, or at the very least, that they’ve never been boys. You don’t have any right to tell me, or any other trans person, that they were ever a particular gender, just as I have no right to tell you what gender you are. A trans woman who was obligated to present as male for most of her young life is was no more “born a man” than a lesbian who was obligated to date men for most of her young life “used to be straight.”

You know what….. 

Is this a joke? This gotta be a joke

Holy SHIT

Ya gotta be shitting me

I’m not even sure what to say, except, “justice” is nothing but a fable and tall-tale, it does not exist for Black people.

Our “justice system” is legit trolling us at this point.

Holy. Fucking. SHIT.

Sabrina Reid just put me on to a police dash cam video from South Carolina regarding an incident that occurred between Levar Jones and a state trooper on September 4, 2014.

The video shows a state trooper pulling up to a gas station as Jones gets out of his car.

The trooper yells for Jones to produce his license.

Jones bends into his car to get his license and the trooper opens fire and strikes the man.

Jones, in shock, backs away from the car WITH HIS HANDS IN THE AIR.

In a stunning act of inhumanity, THE TROOPER CONTINUES TO FIRE UPON JONES—WHO CLEARLY HAS HIS HANDS UP.

Jones falls to the ground and the fucking trooper yells “Get on the ground!”

The wounded Jones, already on the fucking ground, says to the trooper, “I was getting my license. You said ‘get [my] license.”

The trooper continues to treat Jones as though he were guilty of some heinous crime, talking to him as though he had already been tried, convicted, and sentenced.

He walks over to Jones and tells him to put his hands behind his back.

Jones asks, “What did I do??”

The trooper ignores him and continues to tell him to put his hands behind his back.

“Are you hit?” the trooper asks.

“I think so,” the confused Jones says. “I can’t feel my legs.”

“Why did you shoot me?” Jones asks.

“Well, you dove head first back into your car.”

NO HE DIDN’T. HE FOLLOWED YOUR ORDERS TO RETRIEVE HIS LICENSE.

“I was telling you to get out of your car,” the trooper said.

Yes, but he SHOT Jones at CLOSE RANGE even before Jones had the chance to COMPLY with the BRAND NEW ORDER the trooper gave to get out of the car. He literally FIRED ON JONES WHILE HE WAS TELLING HIM TO GET OUT OF THE CAR.

And why? Because the man unbuckled his seat belt before coming to a full stop in the gas station.

Yes, y’all.

This was all over a seat belt.

….

Look, I’m fucking tired.

I’m tired of marching.

I’m tired of praying.

I’m tired of talking.

I’m tired of singing spirituals.

I’m tired.

"There’s the three “men of Middle Eastern appearance” who were detained by police at a football match because someone thought the way they were checking their phones was “suspicious”.



There’s the Muslim guy who was detained by the cops for filming in the Melbourne CBD (read his account over the The Drum if you read nothing else; it’s mildly terrifying).
There’s that mosque in far north Queensland that was vandalised, that mosque in Brisbane that was vandalised, those Muslim ladies in Queensland being told to “fuck off back to your own country” and having coffee thrown on them, and that carload of white guys on the Gold Coast who threatened to behead a brown person in the street because they thought he was Muslim (seriously, Queensland, you are not covering yourself in glory on this one).
There’s the guy who walked into an Islamic school in Sydney armed with a knife, forcing children to be locked inside their classrooms and hide under their desks.
There’s the spat-upon mum, the kicked baby’s pram, the vandalised car and the pig’s head on a spike — the pig’s head on a spike — that have been reported in WA. There’s the rape and death threats being made against Muslim women, and the indifference it’s been met with.”

Even though John Crawford III was only holding a BB gun he picked up—IN A STORE THAT SELLS BB GUNS. Even though it was an open carry state. Even though he was on the phone when police officers opened fire on him. Even though he was shot in the back. Even though the cops lied and were caught in a lie because of the subsequent video. A grand jury who, when added together, obviously didn’t have half a gnat’s brain, declined to indict the officers.  The message here?  It has been, is, and always will be open season on black people for as long as white supremacy is the philosophie du jour.
