This is so important especially after the incident involving Pakistani student Malala Yousafzai. I cannot stress upon on how dangerous the rhetoric around this event is considering how many have instantly resorted to support drone attacks. Journalist Urooj Zia states this simply: “Please, stop using the attack on Malala to justify drones. We’ve been ‘droned’ for years now, & freely. Are militants dead? No.”
Incidents like these need to be treated with caution and consideration by media given how the framing of a tragedy (especially a gendered tragedy) leads to the justification of foreign policies that, in the long run, prove to be highly detrimental.
Guess what? The schoolgirls injured alongside Malala Yousafzai, the teenage Pakistani activist attacked by Taliban gunman, say they do not want to become a symbol for girls education for fear they will be targeted again.
This is a slap in the face of every single irresponsible media mouthpiece, “liberal”, celebrity that carelessly publicized these girls’ lives. Malala is in the United Kingdom but these two girls are still in Pakistan. Like Arsalan said: This rendering of brown children into symbols is disgusting, dangerous and ultimately destructive. Here’s proof that they, themselves, don’t want this publicity.
Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.
Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.
You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.
As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”"
A great example of science art reaching out to the public. If you’re in Dulles airport outside Washington, D.C. before the end of November, check out these amazing “microscapes.” Or, you can visit the slideshow provided by Science News magazine for a sneak peak!
