"At Rio Americano High School in Sacramento CA, a student named Dejza, was violently assaulted by a vice principal, Matt Collier, for attempting to take back a piece of art with a political message that the administration didn’t like. She was put in a chokehold and slammed against the desk. When she tried to resist this unlawful abuse of authority, she was slammed and held onto the ground. Matt Collier laid on top of her, crushing her with his weight. Dejza could not breathe, and begged Collier to get off of her. Luckily, another faculty member came in and ended the situation. Dejza went to see a doctor for severe whiplash, and yesterday was her first day of physical therapy. Despite this being blatantly wrong and illegal, the administration has put her on suspension for resisting, and Collier was not disciplined. On the fifth day of her suspension, she will attend a meeting held by bias members of the administration to determine if she will be expelled.

They have tried to silence anyone who speaks out on social media, but today we have gathered in person for a silent sit-in protest.

Dejza has been wronged, and brutalized, and now she is receiving punishment. They’ve tried to silence her. They’ve tried to silence us.” -Grant Wright 

One of my friends Grant posted this on facebook and even though im not in Sacramento I want to help. This girl has been mistreated by a full grown man who may never be punished. I want to help spread awareness. So please, spread this around. Let people know that this is NOT okay. The more support we have, the better. 

i’m so proud to have been a part of this today but you guys please please please please reblog/spread this around any way you possibly can it’s so important and her story needs to be heard by people outside of our city because what this man did is so so so incredibly far from okay

arrest Matt Collier. protect and redeem Dejza.

"Soviet" means "union"
The Union Union

We’re good at this.

the world is full of nothing but moon moons we are all moon moon all of us

Actually, NO, “Soviet” means “Council.” The Soviet Union is a direct translation of the title in Russian, the Union of Council, or Council Union.

Clara and Danny’s relationship is becoming more and more unhealthy which is extremely worrying, especially because literally no-one is calling them out on it…

Diiiiiiiiiid you notice the part where the Doctor CALLS CLARA OUT ON IT?

Cripes, you’re trying so hard, aren’t you?

To be honest I wasn’t paying an awful lot of attention in tonight’s episode, what did he say?

Also, I’m not intentionally looking for flaws in this show, it’s just hard not to notice them, I’ll quite happily shut my mouth if there’s something not worth ranting about, I felt this was an important issue and next time I’ll get my facts straight, okay?

Right after Clara and Riggsy escape in the hanging chair thing, the Doctor points out that Clara has been lying to both him and Danny; he’s criticizing her more for lying to him  than to Danny, but he also points out that the web of lies in its entirety is a problem, and he’s frankly disturbed by what Clara is turning into. You’ll find the conversation between 17:30 and 18:00.

Sorry, I may have been treating you as more of a representative of a tumblr movement than as an individual in my previous response. It honestly feels as thought the default setting many people have for their enjoyment of the show now is “well that was toxic, sexist rubbish, don’t you  think he looks tired? I can’t wait until I can respect this show again,” etc. It takes actual criticism and throws it right out the window. I, for one, am enjoying a recent return to form (this is either the third or the sixth good episode in a row, I’d say), and I love the fact that the Doctor is absolutely perturbed at this new reflection of both himself and what he does to people. I really, really hope Moffat pulls the finale off (without making any of his regular, VERY REAL missteps, especially the sexist undertones. More than that, I hope than next series has more new writers (including a few women - Neil Gaiman had a good point!). But either way, tonight’s episode has been a true piece of Doctor Who, and I can’t wait to see what comes next.

if you had to drop out of a class you are not a failure

if you had to take time off school you are not a failure

if you had to leave school for good you are not a failure

your worth is not determined by academia and this goes doubly so for disabled people and others for whom school is set against them

I graduated high school four years ago and I still have a little nagging fear at the back of my head that I forgot to do something and one of my teachers is just sitting at the school, four years later, still deducting a full 7% letter grade every day my report on Old Man and the Sea is late. The best grade I could get on it now is a -10799%. If I ever turn it in, my high school GPA will plummet so quickly that I will be retroactively rejected from the college I go to.
