First female black student-president at nation’s most expensive prep school is forced to resign after ‘offensive’ photographs of her mocking ‘typical white classmates’ emerge online
The former black student body president at a pricey New Jersey prep school was forced to resign from her leadership position earlier this year after she posted a series of photos on the Internet, in which she is seen dressed as what she describes to be the typical male, white student at the school.
In the photos, former Lawrenceville School Student Body President Maya Peterson is seen wearing L.L. Bean duck boots, a Yale University sweatshirt and is holding a hockey stick, which she says is representative of the typical ‘Lawrenceville boi.’
In addition to the photos, she added hashtags like ‘#romney2016,’ ‘#confederate,’ and ‘#peakedinhighschool.’
Peterson explains that the photos were meant as a joke in response to complaints made by students about her senior photos, in which she and 10 friends - all of whom were black - are seen raising their fists in a ‘Black Power’ salute. 
'I understand why I hurt people’s feelings, but I didn’t become president to make sure rich white guys had more representation on campus,' she told the website. 'Let’s be honest. They’re not the ones that feel uncomfortable here.'
Some of Peterson’s classmates, however, didn’t see the humor in her ‘racist’ photos.
'You’re the student body president, and you’re mocking and blatantly insulting a large group of the school’s male population,' one student commented on the photo.
Peterson’s response to the comment only made things worse.
'Yes, I am making a mockery of the right-wing, confederate-flag hanging, openly misogynistic Lawrentians,' Peterson responded. 'If that’s a large portion of the school’s male population, then I think the issue is not with my bringing attention to it in a lighthearted way, but rather why no one has brought attention to it before…'
Both students and faculty members felt the images were offensive, and that ‘it was not fitting of a student leader to make comments mocking members of the community,’ Dean of Students Nancy Thomas told the Lawrenceville student paper.
Peterson’s take on race has irritated her classmates in the past, as well.
In 2012, following the re-election of President Barack Obama, Peterson wrote on Facebook about how proud she was that an African-American was president - and threw in a sarcastic jab at white people.
'As a black and Latino, gay woman in the United States of America, today is a momentous day,' she wrote. 'I’m sorry to all the rich white men who have failed to elect a president that endorses their greed.'
Some of her classmates felt the Facebook post was racist.
'I’m gonna have to assume from your political beliefs and what you’ve said that you do not pay for your Lawrenceville tuition in its entirety,' one student wrote. 'But do you know who pays for that? Yeah, that would be all those greedy white men who actually worked for their fortune, not relied on the government to support them. Just saying.'
Peterson’s family paid full tuition at the school.
Peterson’s getting elected student body president worried many of her classmates, as they believed she was alienating a large portion of the student body with her controversial comments about white classmates
One former student said Peterson’s photos - and overall attitude, ‘violated the spirit of the Lawrenceville community.’
'It was hateful. It wasn’t inclusive,' the student, identified only as David, said. 'When I think of Maya Peterson, I don’t think of someone who is an avid proponent of progress or of inclusiveness. I think of someone who is hateful. She had a hateful spirit.

Lord look at this madness
I SUPPORT MAYA PETERSON!!!!

I have never felt more love for someone that I have never met than I do for this young woman.  I thought she would apologize but in the boldness of her reasoning I saw no lies.
Maya Paterson for some public office in the future?  Presidency maybe..

Blackface African parties: Silence
Native American mocking parties-Silence
Urban Black culture mocking parties-Silence
Black woman with a hockey stick-OMG REVERSE RACISM!!!
I honestly believe she was making a point and their reaction made her point perfectly.

A Voice for Men, a men’s rights site that is most notable for being featured as a hate site by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is currently hosting a conference on men’s issues in Detroit.

The images above are direct quotes of what some of the speakers at this men’s rights conference have said.

Sit back and marvel at the newest human rights movement.

Thanks to both David Futrelle at We Hunted The Mammoth for the excellent article that inspired this post and whey_ over at the againstmensrights subreddit for making the above images.

Please share this post far and wide so everyone knows exactly what men’s rights activists believe!

That’s actually one of the tamer Warren Farrell quotes. He actually said that incest victims enjoy it.

And not for nothing, but Karen Straughan was “awakened” to misandry when her son’s school put him in the remedial class when she KNEW he was a genius.

And Erin Pizzey thinks the FBI is run by feminists who also shot her dog.

Reblogging again for that last comment.

Lavoisier is having none of your shit.

Heeeey so fun fact: the woman in that painting is Lavoisier’s wife, Marie-Anne Pierrette Paulze, who not only acted as Lavoisier’s lab assistant but also translated English and Latin texts into French so he could read them. But she didn’t just translate, she pointed out errors in the chemistry in some of the texts. Her observations of these errors convinced Lavoisier to study combustion, which led to his discovery of oxygen. She was also critical to the publication of Lavoisier’s Elementary Treatise on Chemistry in 1789. She kept strict records of every experiment they conducted together and drew detailed diagrams of all their equipment. She also threw amazing parties and invited all the brightest minds in science so her husband could pick their brains. After Lavoisier was guillotined she secured all of his notebooks and equipment for posterity.
In short: NOBODY KICKS MADAME LAVOISIER OUT OF THE LAB.

Also, a side note: My historian husband-to-be pointed some things out to me about this painting. Notice that Madame Lavoisier is looking at the viewer, and all the light is on her, while Lavoisier himself is physically smaller than her, in shadow, and looking up to her in reverence. This isn’t a candid photograph- all of these choices are deliberate. The painting isn’t of Lavoisier- Madame Lavoisier is meant to be the central subject. 
I can just imagine Lavoisier telling all his colleagues that his wife is really the one with all the clever ideas, and them patting him on the back and telling him he’s sweet for saying so.

No, friendship is NOT about “supporting your friends even when you know they’re wrong.”

That’s not friendship. That’s being an enabler. That’s being an accomplice.

Friendship is loving someone enough to tell them to stop being a goddamn idiot before they ruin their lives.

If they expect anything else, they’re not looking for friends. They’re looking to join a gang.

Fine. Your call. But I’m going to be part of your gang.

Trans and Queer Activists Beaten and Arrested During SF Pride

San Francisco’s Mission District – At least six people were arrested on Saturday night after a protest against a prison-themed Kink.com party.

The six included a National Lawyers’ Guild Legal Observer; several protesters were clubbed and beaten to the ground after a protest numbering several hundred marched to the Armory at 14th and Mission Streets in the Mission District, from a 10 p.m. gathering at the 16th Street BART Station. Two of the arrestees have been released; four are still in custody as of 4 a.m. Sunday morning.

The promoters of the Kink.com party mockingly invited people to “get arrested” and enjoy “solitary confinement, showers, jailbreak, love and lust, freedom and confinement.” The protesters argued that the party was a crude event that profited off of the brutality suffered by trans women and gender nonconforming people of color, who are so often funneled into the prison industrial complex.

“This is a travesty—on the anniversary of the famed Stonewall Rebellion, where trans and queer people rose up against police brutality, that six people would be arrested for protesting an SF Pride-sanctioned party that celebrated state violence and prison rape,” said Mary Lou Ratchet, a Gay Shame (gayshamesf.org) representative. The march was organized by Gay Shame and LAGAI (www.lagai.org).

"

— so we celebrate stonewall and pride with police brutality of a legitimate protest against a circuit party that doesn’t at all address the fact qpoc and qblack people are jailed and incarcerated indiscriminately and disproportionately? (via parteira)

Lots of people still post photos of their concert tickets online and I’ve seen people crying at the entrance of a venue when this had happened to them, so I made a thing and I hope this will help some of you :)

I received this heartwarming message this morning on Facebook from Felix and he was kind enough to agree to allow me to share it with all of you. I hope he gets to see his family soon. And this is a photo of him with his grandmother, who is 88 years old, just about the same age as Mako and Bolin’s grandmother! And no, Felix, you didn’t waste my time. Thanks for sharing.

Hello Mr. Di Martino, First of all congratulations for the premiere of the book 3 of Legend of Korra and second sorry for my broken English, I’m from Argentina so English isn’t my first language.

I have to be sincere here, i love all the seasons with Aang, book 1 of Korra was cool, book 2 was so-so for me (please don’t kill me for saying that) and i was ready for book 3 when something happen… I was watching the 3rd episode: “The Earth Queen” and i cried a lot with the subplot of Mako and Bolin with their family from Ba Sing Se. Since I’m in college studying graphic design i wasn’t able to visit the family of my mother in Paraguay, my uncles, aunts, cousins and my grandmother. They live in a rural area that doesn’t have a lot of money or technology so looking at Mako and Bolin’s family was like looking directly to my family, I even think that we have the same number of family members!.

The hug between Bolin and Mako with their grandmother made me cry, it was something that I really want to do right now with my own grandmother, usually I feel sympathy for characters but it was the first time i feel identified with cartoon characters. That chapter was something really special for me and if I became a professional artist and I create a comic, animation or videogame, I hope that I will be able to reach people the same way you guys did with me. Meanwhile, I can’t wait to pass all my finals at college next month and go at least one week to Paraguay to visit my family there.

Well, that’s all; I wanted to thank you, Mr. Konietzko and the others in the crew for the amazing work over the years and for let me have this special moment thanks to Avatar. I hope one day I will able to repay you all for this in some way in the future. Thanks again and sorry for wasting your time, Felix Horacio “Horade” De Vicenzo.
