expect so much
I try to keep abreast of the latest that’s on the Tumblr.

-Ruth Bader Ginsburg is into the internet and owns a ton of “Notorious RBG” shirts (via tpmmedia)

I truly can’t imagine a better gift than a “Notorious RBG” shirt from the Notorious RBG herself.

This made my day.

For the first episode of podcast called Working, David Plotz talks to Stephen Colbert about how he and his staff construct The Colbert Report. This is fascinating.

My show is a shadow of the news, so I have to know what shadow it’s casting right now, so I can distort it in my own way.

Fascinating

I think if someone had somehow had a dream in which they had seen our smartphone technology as it is today in the 1950s, and they’d written a science fiction story, I doubt they would have been able to publish it. It would be so hard to tell a story while you’re simultaneously describing this thing that these people do with these weird little pocket television sets they all have.

An accidentally published, unredacted document from a lawsuit against the TSA reveals that the Taking Shoes Away people believe that “terrorist threat groups present in the Homeland are not known to be actively plotting against civil aviation targets or airports.” That is to say, there is no identifiable risk to America’s skies — and all of business with shoes and pornoscanners and horrible, abusive incidents involving toddlers, people with mental disabilities, cancer survivors, rape survivors, and the whole business of treating travellers like presumptive terrorists is all to prevent a problem that, to all intents and purposes, doesn’t exist.

Read the rest…

Security theater - time for the curtain to fall.

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons

This is so fucking scary. Does a woman have to die before these threats are taken seriously? 

When I read these threats, the first thing that popped into my mind was “Marc Lepine”. 

anddd I just finished reading a few articles, and I am completely SHOCKED to find that the author of the threats actually references the Montreal Massacre. 

I just can’t even with this. Reblogging again for commentary.

Fucking a.
