New Big Bang evidence also hints that we may exist in a multiverse
As space-time inflated in the seconds after the Big Bang, it’s possible that ‘bubbles formed,’ creating new universes.

fishmateo:

That’s true.

I never understood how someone would actually try to debate that having a race preference isn’t racist and that it’s somehow should be accepted. It makes no sense logically. Let’s take black people for example, One would say that they don’t like black people as romantic partners. That’s millions…

every time I bring that subject up, my friends just ignore me. When I say that their “preference” for white guys is racist, they just ignore me. 
That’s just stupid. When you are romantically involved with some one, the last thing that should matter is their skin color. If you worry about your partner skin color, you are fucking racist.

I most definitely agree with generally everyone in this, but I am not so sure about keeping religion. (Which is different from having faith)

Religions are a set of rules for people to follow, and for me, all of them are oppressive. Besides that, I think a country or region can have it’s culture without religion: they can have their own food, way of cooking, their music and social celebrations without the need of a religion.
It is true that religion has influence on all of that in many (if not all) current cultures, but that doesn’t mean it is a necessary part of it. Especially because, from what I see, it brings more bad than good things to society, especially to the minorities.
Although I don’t believe in any god, I don’t think believing in a god is  a bad thing, on the contrary, it brings peace of mind to a lot of people that I know and cherish. But that kind of faith doesn’t need to be attached to any kind of oppressive rules in the form of religion.

As someone who doesn't really know Mackelmore or heard his song "Same Love", would you mind telling me why he's not a good spokesperson for queer rights?

Because he’s straight.

He inherently cannot be a good spokesperson for queer rights because he’s not queer.

And he’s not even a good ally because he has repeatedly spoken for and over queer voices instead of shutting up and letting us speak for ourselves. A good ally helps to share the voices and ideals of the group they’re supporting, not try to be the voice of that group.

EDIT FOR CLARIFICATION: This isn’t to say to that straight people cannot be good allies. This is to say that Macklemore can never be the face of the queer rights movement because he’s not queer. Much in the same way that a white person cannot be the face of the racial justice movement and most male-identified people cannot be the face of the feminist movement. This is not to say that these people do not benefit from these social justice movements, or that they do not have every right to support it. However, as members of said marginalized groups, we reserve every right to call out our allies when they act in manners that are inappropriate or speak over us.

When Macklemore delivered his acceptance speech at the VMA’s heralding “gay equality,” he did not give queer people the opportunity to speak for our own cause, despite the fact that there was a queer woman standing right next to him on stage. Not only is that a matter of silencing queer people, it also centers our movement around the voices of straight people, and that’s no way for us to make progress towards genuine acceptance and liberation.

Allies are great, and a much needed people for any social justice group. But they will never be the center of any of those movements, and it’s important to listen to the voices of those directly affected by these movements. Queer people are plenty underrepresented in mainstream media outlets as is. We should herald, celebrate, and listen to the voices of artists like Le1f and Angel Haze, not let them be overshadowed.

"Well, when I was nine years old, Star Trek came on, I looked at it and I went screaming through the house, 'Come here, mum, everybody, come quick, come quick, there's a black lady on television and she ain't no maid!' I knew right then and there I could be anything I wanted to be.”

Always reblog, because REPRESENTATION DOES MATTERS

MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY

And Mary Lambert, who is a Lesbian and participates on the song, seems  ALWAYS to be forgotten by the media. ARGGG

It’s like: look that white straight dude talking about how we shouldn’t be homophobic, but just shut up Mary! Your voice doesn’t count! You’re gay, remember???

"Gay marriage is still illegal. Can we get a ‘boo’ for that? It’s crazy to outlaw marriage. Marriage is a happy thing. You shouldn’t be able to vote on someone else’s happiness. These people don’t know these gay people, they’re not going to know them, they’re not gonna be their friends…they have control over their lives. That’s not fair.”

hugtherobots:

I know it’s trendy to fight the system and cry that we are all becoming slaves of technology, but this attitude overlooks that computers and phones are tools for communicating. When someone thinks I’m an idiot smiling at a machine, I’m actually smiling at my girlfriend who is 10000 miles away and whom I would have never met if not for these newfangled electronics. As they say: when the wise man points to the moon, the fool looks at the finger.

This is a topic that I’ve been wanting to tackle for a while now; much credit to this excellent post for bringing it to the front of my brain.

MISS OFFICER AND MR TRUFFLES coming soon this Summer maybe not. 

Just in case anyone has missed the amazing Miss Officer and Mr. Truffles phenomenon…

The real Miss Officer is now on tumblr. And if you haven’t seen her interview, she is just as cute in real life as in the comic. 

lemonteaflower, the amazing artist that started this all, has a Miss Officer and Mr. Truffles tag with a very neat collection of fan art that has been created so far. She also just released a t-shirt that I am going to buy after I finish this post.

Sean made the most perfect theme song ever. 

And if you haven’t seen Eisu’s video, well, you better go watch that immediately

This whole thing has been pretty incredible. A positive movement that spread throughout tumblr like wildfire. No negativity… just love, support, and an adorable crime fighting duo. These are the kinds of things that get people through bad days. Myself included. My sincerest gratitude to all involved.
