7 dangerous myths about women who wear hijabs

The hijab is not the most important part of being a Muslim woman, but it is certainly the most visible. In a time when Islamophobia only seems to be on the rise in the West, a practice that is so personal and diverse has become a warped and misunderstood part of a flat and monolithic picture of Muslim women.

That’s riiiight

Outside the lab, Piff found that the rich donated a smaller percentage of their wealth than poorer people. In 2011, the wealthiest Americans, those with earnings in the top 20%, contributed 1.3% of their income to charity, while those in the bottom 20% donated 3.2% of their income. The trend to meanness was worst in plush suburbs where everyone had a high income, and never laid eyes on a poor person. Insulation from people in need, Piff concluded, dampened charitable impulses. Poorer people were also more likely to give to those charities servicing the genuinely needy. The rich gave to high-status institutions such as already well-endowed art galleries, museums and universities, while Feeding America, which deals with the nation’s poorest, got nothing.



why was girl at school walking around with a goddamn starbucks cup wtf

They are literally putting millions of people in danger.


Science is not a ‘belief’


End of story

People who claim they don’t ‘believe’ in vaccinations are basically the equivalent of someone pointing at the ocean and saying that they don’t ‘Believe’ that it’s possible for fish to live in it

They are effing idiots who are denying reality

I prefer to call them Murderers. Because of their blanket stupidity, they are potentially killing their own children and the children of others.

I honestly think that any parent who refuses to vaccinate their kid deserves to have that kid taken away from them by social services

Because they’re pretty clearly NOT fit parents

Honestly, it should be the duty of pediatricans and doctors to report parents who won’t vaccinate their kids (outside of autoimmune issues) because they “believe” them to be bad, to CPS. If you’re stupid enough to put your kids at risk and other kids at risk, you have no business being a parent. 

I don’t know about you, but when I have kids, I sure as hell don’t want to worry about them getting diseases my parents never had to worry about me getting because of dumb asses like these. 

It’s not only child negligence by not vaccinating your children, but you are putting those that are immunoinsufficent at risk. No, these people aren’t just people with HIV/AIDS. These are babies and elderly. Imagine your child coming home and infecting their younger siblings, your parents, heck, your neighbors.

The thing about science is that they are repeated experiments and they all result in data. This data culminates into a “theory” but the scientific meaning for theory isn’t the colloquial term. It basically means it’s a goddamn fact — NOT a hypothesis or a guess. It’s basically a motherfucking fact.

And you know what? Vaccines CAN get your child sick but it’s not going to be full on measles, it’s not going to give it TB and an iron lung.



why are people mean to Steve Buscemi?  People literally go to live events and tell him he’s ugly and freaky to his face.  Why would you ever do that? Steve Buscemi has never done anything to you.  Steve Buscemi is really nice.  He does volunteer work.  He used be a firefighter.  He was the best man at Stanley Tucci’s wedding.  There is literally no reason to be mean to Steve Buscemi.
