Perfect, that’s exactly what Detroit needs. Good thing their economy is bouncing back, population is rapidly growing, and they have a marketable industry to support themselves. Oh wait, that’s right…
Update: Detroit Needs A Statue of Robocop
Almost 2 years ago, Imagination Station Detroit set out to raise $50,000 dollars to create a monument to the fictional hero of Detroit, Robocop. They eclipsed their goal and immediately began rebuilding Officer Alex J. Murphy again.
“He’s not done yet, but what you’re seeing in these pictures is pretty much exactly how he’ll look.”
They recently posted an update along with the above images letting everyone know the status of this 10 foot tall monument.
Ok, so Charlize Theron is attractive 99.99% of the time. The .01% in this equation is from when she was in Monster, and even then she was still giving people boners. From fear. Fear Boners.
Why I Need Feminism
I’ve gotten into so many arguments about feminism and why it’s relevant lately both on and off the internet I decided to make one of these.
That’s me. The pic on the left is what I look like. That’s what I wear to work, going out, everywhere.
On the right is what I would want to wear going out and hell even going for a coffee with my friends. I never do, though, because I’m afraid.
I’m afraid of the panic attack I have everytime a guy I don’t know touches me. Even if it’s on the arm and not threatening at all I feel so uncomfortable by unwanted physical attention I get physically ill.
I’m afraid that what happened when I once did go out in that dress might happen again: getting eye drops in my pint.
What angers me the most is when girls say they’re not feminists or that they don’t need feminism. WE ALL NEED IT. We all need a world where a girl can wear whatever she wants and
a) not get judged for wearing it and
b) doesn’t have to be afraid
It’s a joke in my circle of friends that I look like a 14-year-old boy. I don’t mind the joke, because it’s accurate and kind of funny to me. After reading up on feminism and all that on tumblr and following discussions and THINKING about thins stuff I realised why I feel more comfortable like that.
It’s because in the world I live in, it’s safer to be a 14-ear-old boy than a 28-year-old woman.
Sounds like you’re just retarded. You don’t NEED feminism. Feminism is destroying society by destroying relationships.
Because of feminism, every girl I’ve been with (besides a few) have this belief that they are in control. When in reality it should be a balance.
So think before you trust men, because no matter what you are gonna have assholes out there, who are going to try and take advantage of you. It’s just life
Bolding for hilarity. The guy who just commented on that last post saying ‘women are stupid’ for saying we’re being punished for trusting and mistrusting men just told someone to be wary of trusting men.
Also the fact that people think that feminism is harming relationships because it makes men feel like women are in control just cracks me the fuck up. I am giggling a very painful giggle.
Ok. I’m a guy. I have very little say on woman’s rights, by and large, because I’m a guy. However, after talking at length with my wife, I can safely say that women need feminism. Women (or rather, EVERYONE) need to keep in mind that there was a time that woman were treated more unfairly they they are now, and had to work INCREDIBLY hard to get what rights modern woman have. We could go into a large history lesson on Women’s Suffrage, or any number of leaps forward that have been taken for women’s rights (Active Military Service, Voting rights, Abortion, etc…) , but the base facts are too few people stop to respect how far women’s rights have come.
Taking what the ill-informed poster has to say in mind… scratch that, we’re not going to do it. Relationships should be based in equality, for both partners, whether they be male/female male/male female/female. That’s what relationships are and anyone in a relationship that feels that they NEED to have the ‘upper hand’ or be ‘in charge’ of the relationship, probable shouldn’t be in one. It really sounds like you have a lot of self discovery do to, and that’s something you should do on your own time. Don’t waste someone else’s.
To the original poster: wear what you wanna wear, do what you want to do, and be the person you feel most comfortable being. Find out what kind of a person you are and who you are and fuck everyone else in the process… not like shag everyone… unless that’s a part of finding yourself, then by all means, shag away… anyway, at the end of the day you need to be happy with what you see in the mirror. And if your friends are good friends they’ll understand and it wont be a thing.
(Now, we could get into a whole thing about good friends and bad friends, but we wont do that. Use some common sense on that one and you should be started in the right direction. Hopefully.)
… where was I?? right… the fact that you have to be afraid of anyone for whatever you might be wearing is a sad statement of humanity as a whole. I don’t have much on that one simply because I have a hard time trying to put myself in the shoes of an asshole. How anyone can harm another person and justify it with some bullshit answer… it’s disgusting. Mind boggling, really. I really think that it’s something we need to toss over to Steven Hawking, or one of those new super computers that have never been beaten at chess. Maybe after years of contemplation they might come up with an answer that boils down to more then, “well, he’s an ass hole.”
1) Feminism is important for everyone, always.
2) That other poster might be, MIGHT BE, misguided.
3) Be you, fuck people. (in any order or form)
4) Ass holes are ass holes and it’s sad that’s a thing.
All the best.
p.s. THIS IS REALLY LONG. WHAT THE HELL WAS I THINKING.
There’s a lot of debris floating around in space, and researchers at the Lawrence Livermore National Lab are using supercomputers, optical sensors and other technology to track even small objects that could damage important satellites.
John Henderson, a space scientist at LLNL, explains:
“Everybody uses GPS to get from here to there. We have satellite television, we have weather reports, farmers use satellite data for monitoring crops. If you have a piece of satellite debris whacking into a satellite, in the worst case you now lose that capability. In February of 2009, that actually happened where there was an Iridium communications satellite that collided with a dead Russian Kosmos satellite and so that basically took out a $100 million dollar satellite.
There’s somewhere between 100,000 to 200,000 pieces of debris that we would like to be tracking. And so the supercomputing capabilities that we have here at Livermore are one way to keep track of that.”
