All I see is another reason why women are so frightened to and believe that they shouldn’t speak up about their assault. Because it wouldn’t matter. Because nothing would happened. Because you failed her.

They gave her a congressional hearing for fucks sake, an opportunity I might add she almost refused.She could not prove her claims. People she claimed were witnesses said they had no recollection of the event she put forward. Literally nothing she presented was evidence of any sort and her story was fraught with inconsistencies and vague details.Another woman came forward with a story even more completely uncorroborated. She was so unsure it was even Kavanagh who assaulted her that it took almost a week for her to convince herself it was him, and once again nobody remembers a thing.An investigation was made, people weighed the lack of evidence and determined that there was no cause to prevent the man from taking the job because we still live in a country where you should be viewed as innocent unless there’s actual evidence of your guilt.It’s not that deep.

Bernie Sanders, Black Lives Matter, and Donald Trump: Bernie 2016 I SUPPORT PALESTINIAN H UM AN RIGHTS politics-junkie: vox: Why this black Bernie Sanders delegate says he doesn’t have the luxury of going “Bernie or Bust.” Every night of the Democratic National Convention, Pastor Ray Shawn McKinnon and his friend Sebastian stayed up talking well past 3 am in their Holiday Inn hotel room. The two met last summer volunteering for Bernie Sanders in North Carolina, and soon became close friends. McKinnon, who is black and 6'1, calls Sebastian, who is white and 5'2, his “pint-sized conscience.” Over 14 months, they were inseparable allies: canvassing, phone-banking, and organizing for a common cause. But now they’re at odds — and trying to make sense of it. Sebastian says he can’t bring himself to vote for Hillary Clinton. But McKinnon can’t believe that his onetime allies, including Sebastian, hate Clinton so much that they would risk a presidency McKinnon thinks would be a catastrophe for minorities — including his four black sons. “If Donald Trump wins, he’s more likely to appoint judges who oppose Black Lives Matter and criminal justice reform, and who think that police officers — who can kill black people without being charged — already don’t have enough power. That means if my kids get shot, the officers who did it would become less likely to be charged,” he says. “This isn’t theory for us. It’s reality.” It’s only a risk unless you live in a swing state.Why are people baffled when others don’t share the same viewpoints as them?  “Trying to make sense of it”?  Really? This is what happens when neo-liberals use the language of identity politics. This notion that a black person or any POC HAS to like Clinton or that being a leftist and a POC are in direct conflict is so condescending, and it really irks me. It erases agency from POC and is more harmful than good.

ITS NOT REAL, ITS NOT REAL DR. ZIEGLER WOULD NEVER DO THAT, WOULD SHE? SNIFF WOULD SHE? SNIFF LENA? IS YOUR CHRONAL ACCELERATOR ACTING UP AGAIN? I-IM FINE WINSTON. IT WORKS GREAT <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://sunnysundown.tumblr.com/post/147189726846" target="_blank">sunnysundown</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://blackbookalpha.tumblr.com/post/146931514940" target="_blank">blackbookalpha</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>Taking a break from Gremlin D.Va comics, need to catch up on personal work.</p> <p>I’ve been looking at a lot of “Mercy Is Evil” theories since I’ve always questioned her design, especially how Overwatch’s concept artists purposely made her into a young, kind-hearted, angelic-looking healer that can do no wrong.</p> <p>Mercy is possibly an antagonist in Overwatch. If you had the ability to bring people back from the dead, you would never function like a normal human being ever again.</p> <p>Most doctors in the healthcare field have some level of God complex, surgeons are notoriously well-known for this. When you can fix a person’s body with extreme precision (and get paid a lot of money for it), you tend to become arrogant and have inflated forms of egocentricity and narcissism.</p> <p>That goes a lot further when a person solves the problem of preventing DEATH itself.</p> <p><br/></p> <p><b>What we know so far:</b></p> <p>- Mercy’s motivation to pursue medicine was the death of her parents during the first Omnic crisis. Instead of revenge, she focused on becoming a surgeon, then later made medical breakthroughs that significantly treats life-threatening illnesses and injuries.</p> <p>- Mercy has achieved a plethora of scientific advancements in applied nanobiology and cybernetics, thanks to Overwatch funding her research. She became the head of their medical research group, healing the injured during the war.</p> <p>- She is seemingly young-looking despite being 37 years old.</p> <p>- She was often at odds with her superiors and their goals, which led to allegations where she was later interrogated in court when Overwatch started to crumble from within, highlighting the politics between Morrison and Reyes.</p> <p>- Mercy was responsible for turning Gabriel Reyes into Reaper, possibly from a failed genetic alteration stated in the Visual Source Book. She’s also the one who brought Genji back from the brink of death without his consent, turning him into a cyborg. Genji hated his new cybernetic body but later found peace after meeting with Zenyatta.</p> <p><br/></p> <p><b>Thoughts:</b></p> <p>- Mercy is an advocate of peace and personally dislikes war. Pacifists are often the most dangerous since they create things that deter war entirely. Albert Einstein is a prime example of a pacifist, who later helped develop the Atomic Bomb.</p> <figure data-orig-width="837" data-orig-height="314" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/26c3c7aae8c511e090be6855b2b6e8cb/tumblr_inline_o9trjlhdYh1r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="837" data-orig-height="314"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>- Mercy disliked Overwatch’s militaristic approach, but joined them since she saw opportunities in advancing her research and personal interests. It’s a doctor’s ultimate dream to work on anything they want that doesn’t follow any conventions, nor bound to the laws of nature or religion.</p> <figure data-orig-width="600" data-orig-height="306" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/4a5b8b00ed9bea70f8182d7dcdf80e80/tumblr_inline_o9trmv5ld31r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="600" data-orig-height="306"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>- Before Overwatch, her research was possibly used by the government in the Soldier Enhancement Program, turning Morrison(S:76) and Reyes(Reaper) and into super soldiers.</p> <figure data-orig-width="500" data-orig-height="250" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/ac88751a5eff3cbe27f25150a2385ac9/tumblr_inline_o9trnlChTn1r4iqdh_500.gif" alt="image" data-orig-width="500" data-orig-height="250"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>- Her young appearance is an extreme form of vanity that contributes to narcissistic traits. We still don’t know what she puts on her body that it physically stops her from aging (possibly from her genetic research that involved human testing)</p> <figure data-orig-width="736" data-orig-height="567" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/ecf92cc56a4f0ef0f6a0cd5ef0dc0ae5/tumblr_inline_o9trnxync91r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="736" data-orig-height="567"/></figure><p>(Art by <a href="https://tmblr.co/mX02l3hKCpaxGnYI42iqkzQ" target="_blank">@nesskain</a> - who made the official Reinhardt and Pharah comics)</p> <p><br/></p> <p>- She fashions her Valkyrie suit in the likeness of an angel, a symbol of peace that also doubles as an outfit for one with a <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messiah_complex" target="_blank">Messiah/Savior complex</a>. People who do this wants to gain people’s trust quickly and convert them into fanatical followers. Valkyries in mythology are also called ‘choosers of the slain’, choosing who lives or who dies in battle.</p> <figure data-orig-width="900" data-orig-height="392" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/1c07b0f64342d23316f12beaaba257db/tumblr_inline_o9trziIVaj1r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="900" data-orig-height="392"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>- Raising the dead is expensive. After seeing Overwatch crumbling from within, Mercy secretly took her research with her, destroyed any traces of it in Overwatch’s HQ (by blowing it up) and possibly found new funding from private corporations and interest groups. She was also not present when their Swiss HQ was destroyed, and possibly used the Morrison/Reyes politics as her scapegoat.</p> <p><br/></p> <p>- Reyes was her human guinea pig before she perfected her Resurrection ability through advanced genetic/molecular alteration. Genji was her attempt at creating a well-endowed, cybernetic killing machine. Both had mixed results.</p> <figure data-orig-width="871" data-orig-height="347" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/0d621926bca1bca4485e35218754beb9/tumblr_inline_o9ts1qEMAz1r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="871" data-orig-height="347"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>- Mercy’s a master psychologist, forcefully creating living weapons in order to dismantle global threats (saving most for the greater good). In exchange for Genji’s new cyborg body, Genji was tasked by Overwatch to dismantle his own family, after centuries of being in power. The only reason Genji was able to do this was the clan being at weakest without Hanzo’s leadership. Its easy to call this as a Reyes/Reaper tactic, but his methods are more in line of “Getting the job done at all costs”, with little care on how much unnecessary destruction or casualties he’d accumulate during a mission. Mercy’s deal with Genji was a calculated decision, striking a threat with its own kind with surgical precision (and minimal civilian casualties).</p> <figure data-orig-width="675" data-orig-height="380" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/005a99ae2118785082c13ce23cd67ed4/tumblr_inline_o9tsgenbAk1r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="675" data-orig-height="380"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>- Widowmaker’s blue skin is also a by-product of experimental genetic modification, which parallels Mercy’s line of work (along with creating effective, well-endowed <i>ass</i>assasins). Talon was very unsuccessful at assassinating Overwatch agents, until they became brutally efficient by capturing their love ones instead and sending them back as sleeper agents through neural reconditioning.</p> <figure data-orig-width="471" data-orig-height="316" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/6b805c32d589bfeb2925b1048773140b/tumblr_inline_o9ts2n3x4v1r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="471" data-orig-height="316"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>- She clearly doesn’t want to bring Overwatch back. She has a voice that triggers in Watchpoint: Gibraltar saying <i><b>“Overwatch was shut down for a reason. Maybe it’s best it stay that way.”</b></i></p> <p><a href="http://overwatch.gamepedia.com/Mercy/Quotes" target="_blank">http://overwatch.gamepedia.com/Mercy/Quotes</a></p> <p><br/></p> <p>- Mercy’s “No Pulse” emote has her jokingly checking her vitals, only to find she doesn’t have any.</p> <figure data-orig-width="343" data-orig-height="249" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/1728c151d9a9117eff791af0e834b8f1/tumblr_inline_o9ts4wk6l41r4iqdh_500.gif" alt="image" data-orig-width="343" data-orig-height="249"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>- Her Devil/Imp skin doesn’t shy away from asking a price when she resurrects fallen heroes.</p> <p><br/></p> <p>- Mercy’s possible end game is to prevent the people she loves from dying ever again; being haunted by the death of her parents. Its also the motivating force that drove her to achieve so many medical advancements in a short amount of time. She has a twisted view of saving the majority of mankind; by creating short-term crises that later results into moments of peace. Despite what happens to the world, the rest are just high-paying customers that keep her private life-extension business extremely healthy.</p> <figure data-orig-width="800" data-orig-height="382" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/aabbbadf07787330b107bc347a82cef8/tumblr_inline_o9ts68XEyn1r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="800" data-orig-height="382"/></figure><p><br/></p> <p>Or… I could be wrong and she’s just a sweet, sinless angel birb mom.</p> <figure data-orig-width="1451" data-orig-height="648" class="tmblr-full"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/41f3c2d3b12301df1269a3542b4b76c0/tumblr_inline_o9ts6pXGr31r4iqdh_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="1451" data-orig-height="648"/></figure><p>Be nice to Mercy players &gt;:3</p> </blockquote> <p>i like this Ozymandias-like evil mercy thing </p> </blockquote> <p>Well, there goes my waifu</p>

Being Alone, Animals, and Apparently: TRAILER ballpythoncrazy: ruthlessamor: provendermalkin: There’s a new “horror” movie coming out, and the premise is that a female diver gets stuck sitting on a rock 200 yards from shore in what looks like maaaaaybe 30 foot deep water, with a great white “circling” nearby. It is very stupid looking. I could make all kinds of arguments about how there are only a few documented cases ever of sharks intentionally going after humans, about how we’re already trying to hunt them to extinction because people are terrified of them for no logical reason, about how the creator of Jaws regretted the shark phobia his work inspired for the rest of his life and became an extremely staunch defender of sharks as important ocean wildlife. I could say how pissed I am that yet again someone is making a “horror” movie whose premise is animals are evil and malicious and go after humans for no reason, nature and man are inherently at odds. But instead I’m going to leave these pictures here and make the case that this is going to be a very inconsistent, confused film about a big angry fish who apparently changes size off camera. Here we see the shark doing a Sea World style backflip in order to eat a guy right off his surfboard. (It then chases down guy number two, gets his legs in its mouth, and then… swims backwards? to dramatically pull him away from the rock?) Aaand here we have a perfectly circular bite in the main character’s leg where the shark apparently shrunk way down, bit in deeply enough to leave a perfect circle of ouch in her flesh, and then let go. Either that, or she’s a giantess and her thigh is as big as a man’s entire torso. Sharks, even great white sharks, really don’t give a fuck about humans. We are not food for them. They attack divers because they have relatively poor eyesight, and from below, a human paddling out into the water on a surfboard looks like a very fat, slow, awkward seal floundering on the surface. Sharks who do attack humans generally attack only once before realizing that this is not what they expected. That’s why there are shark attack survivors; the shark doesn’t try to eat the rest of the person they just bit. Great white sharks and tiger sharks can be dangerous, but so can any large animal. More Americans alone are killed by chairs, cows, deer, dogs, and vending machines (each, not added together) than are killed worldwide by sharks even on a very unlucky year. Please be kind to sharks. Be nice to Jaws. Jaws dont want you. Omg thank you for this post.
