That bullying left me with qualities about myself that I wish I did not have, but will probably never be fixed. But I would never wish harm against those who bullied me. I would never wish them dead and most who have been bullied feel the same way. So stop grasping for straws here and just admit that guns do not belong in some (most) people’s hands

Anaconda, Animals, and Facebook: WORLD NEW YORK SUMMIT EVENTS Black female physicist pioneers technology that kills cancer cells with lasers BY WITW STAFF 01.0916 (DR. HADIYAH-NICOLE GREEN/FACEBOOK) Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green is one of fewer than 100 black female physicists in the country, and the recent winner of $1.1 million grant to further develop a technology she's pioneered that uses laser-activated nanoparticles to treat cancer. yamino: mamaduafe: lagonegirl: Green, who lost her parents young, was raised by her aunt and uncle. While still at school, her aunt died from cancer, and three months later her uncle was diagnosed with cancer, too. Green went on to earn her degree in physics at Alabama AM University, being crowned Homecoming Queen while she was at it, before going on full scholarship to University of Alabama in Birmingham to earn her Masters and Ph.D. There Green would become the first to work out how to deliver nanoparticles into cancer cells exclusively, so that a laser could be used to remove them, and then successfully carry out her treatment on living animals.  source her studies thus far are only on head and neck cancers, but her theory is this treatment platform would work on all types of cancers. But needs $$$$ to keep doing research. It seems the issue is how to target the cancer cells and in her head and neck cancer tests, she had success in mice by utilizing fda approved immunotherepy antibodies to deliver nano particles to mark the tumor. Then she could proceed to blast the shit out of cancer with fuckin lasers. she was ready or prepared when opportunity arose I’m so proud of her. I wish more young black women would go into science. #BLACKGIRLMAGIC  Yes!!!!! If she really does cure cancer, watch her name face disappear behind some white man. Don’t let it happen! She deserves all the credit.

Bad, Charlie, and Community: <p><a href="http://christopherjonesart.tumblr.com/post/113911033413/so-about-that-joker-variant-cover-for-batgirl-41" class="tumblr_blog">christopherjonesart</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><b>So about that Joker variant cover for Batgirl #41…</b><br/></p><p>When I first saw “the cover that set the internet on fire,” my first thought was that it was a poor fit for the book, but that it was an otherwise fine cover. It’s a really well-drawn piece by artist <b>Rafael Albuquerque</b>, and it’s just one of a series of Joker-themed variant covers for many <b>DC Comics</b> titles. The cover visually references <b><i>The Killing Joke</i></b>, easily the most famous Joker story in Batgirl’s history (a <i>different</i> Batgirl, but <i>still</i>…) so I absolutely could see the logic.</p><p>Like I said, the dark, creepy tone of the cover seemed a poor fit for the new Batgirl series featuring a young hero clearly meant to appeal to young female readers, but my first response honestly was to be forgiving. After all, It’s just a variant cover. And villains threatening heroes is part of the genre, right? And it’s <i>The Joker</i>. He’s <i><b>supposed</b></i> to be creepy and scary. </p><p>But what bothers me about this piece more and more as I’ve thought about it is that <b>Batgirl isn’t shown as defiant, angry, or ready to go down fighting.</b> Instead she’s shown as a helpless, crying victim, with the villain’s gun-wielding arm wrapped around her. It doesn’t feel like The Joker is being presented as a threat for our hero to overcome; it feels like <b>a celebration of the defeat and degradation of the hero.</b> That would be disturbing and incongruous enough if this were an adult hero like Superman, or even an adult female hero like Wonder Woman. The fact that it appears to be a <b>teenage girl</b> just makes it feel icky.<br/></p><p>Artist <b>Ray Dillon</b> said it better than I could with this piece of art.</p><figure data-orig-width="465" data-orig-height="720"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/846013d1ca56a7941e65e6f31119c43c/tumblr_inline_nldkuj8WEd1qdejyi_500.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-width="465" data-orig-height="720"/></figure><p>Would you expect to see this cover on a <b>Superman</b> comic in place of a dynamic shot of Doomsday and Superman launching themselves at each other in battle? Probably not. This just seems like a mix of creepy and odd, heavy on the creepy. And how much creepier is it when instead of an inhuman monster threatening an adult man, it was a <b>creepy grown man with a gun menacing what appears to be a teenage girl</b>? </p><p>The backlash against the <i>Batgirl #41</i> Joker variant shouldn’t have surprised anyone. People found it inappropriate and even offensive. They saw it as tone deaf or insensitive and read things into it that I don’t think were ever intended by the artist or by DC Comics. And now I’m reading the backlash against the backlash, with many fans of the artwork <b>dismissing the concerns</b> of anyone who was bothered by it. That backlash against the backlash only <b>intensified </b>with DC announced that they were pulling cover <b>at the request of artist Rafael Albuquerque</b>, motivated in part by threats of violence that had been received. Understandably, many assumed that the threats had been against Rafael Albuquerque. <br/><br/>Now let me be clear. I don’t care HOW offended someone is by someone else’s words, deeds, or artwork. You can complain all you want. That’s free speech. <b>The moment you threaten violence, you are escalating the issue in a way that makes YOU the bad guy.</b> That’s Charlie Hebdo territory.<br/><br/>But the assumption that it was critics of the cover threatening Raphael Albuquerque was wrong. It was Batgirl cowriter <b>Cameron Stewart</b> who pointed out that the threats hadn’t been made against the artist. <b>The threats of violance had been made against THOSE CRITICIZING THE COVER.</b></p><figure data-orig-width="657" data-orig-height="393"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/d2e3f543e0f1a716258a510ca6ca8a17/tumblr_inline_nldlluW1sc1qdejyi_500.png" alt="image" data-orig-width="657" data-orig-height="393"/></figure><p>Raphael Albuquerque confirmed this himself.</p><figure data-orig-width="666" data-orig-height="352"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/9f342d878d8466e5c99f39b8f0df6d8b/tumblr_inline_nldln2V74I1qdejyi_500.png" alt="image" data-orig-width="666" data-orig-height="352"/></figure><p>You can read more about that side of things <a href="http://www.theouthousers.com/index.php/news/130951-dc-cancels-controversial-batgirl-variant-cites-threats-of-violence-against-people-who-criticized-cover.html?utm_content=buffer49e9a&amp;utm_medium=social&amp;utm_source=facebook.com&amp;utm_campaign=buffer"><b>HERE</b></a>.</p><p>So, do I think Raphael Albuquerque or anyone at DC Comics was trying to be offensive? No. Let me just say that again. <b>No.</b> I do not think that. (And I honestly believe DC may well have stepped up and decided to pull the cover without the reported threats of violence, given the concern and outrage over its content.)<br/><br/>The fact that the cover was approved in the first place, I think, is a symptom of an industry with a <b>decades-old culture dominated by males</b>, where female characters were there more often than not to be the girlfriend or the damsel-in-distress, and where audiences were predominantly male and perfectly happy with that as the status quo. Speaking as a lifelong male and a nearly-lifelong member of the comics community in one way or another, I totally understand what <b>a bubble that has created</b> and how the very nature of that bubble can lead to usually innocuous <b>lapses in perspective</b>. (This is not an excuse for it happening; merely a rationale.)<br/><br/>All that said, I do think things are changing and they’ll only get better from here. But you still have an industry dominated by white men (a demographic of which I am a part) trying to attract a more diverse readership because they are beginning to truly understand <b>how essential this wider audience is</b> to growing the medium and the industry of comics. And as long as the those in the industry know there’s <b>money to be made</b>, they’ll continue to pursue that wider audience. <br/><br/>The more diversity we can bring into comics at the <b>creator, editorial, and management levels</b>, the more that diversity will be reflected in the comics that are created and how they are marketed to the world - not just in the form of the characters whose stories get told, but in the <b>choices that are made</b>. Basically, eventually, that bubble that allows things like “the cover that set the internet on fire” to have happened will pop. <br/><br/>And here I am, this 45-year-old white guy who has been reading comics his whole life and drawing them professionally for over 20 years, still learning more every day, doing my best to listen, and trying my best to walk the line between not wanting anyone to feel like I’m attacking them but also feeling compelled to speak about something I think is important. And more and more I notice my contemporaries doing the same. I hope you notice it too.<br/><br/>I constantly find myself marveling at all these awesome things that are happening as the comics industry is changing for the better.</p></blockquote>

Single women tend to use voting as a giant exercise in cuckholdry, government essentially becomes their new provider in place of a partner. Don’t be fooled, Women today are not more independent, they just depend on tax dollars (and federal agencies bullying private companies on their behalf) rather than their husband’s.</p> <p>So no, I wouldn’t mind sacrificing my right to vote if it meant I wouldn’t have to deal with all this other feminist bullshit.</p> </blockquote> <p>I get your point.  Between LBJ’s idiotic “Great Society” and modern feminism’s support of the destruction of the family, increasing numbers of women have used the government as baby daddy. </p> <p>However, I don’t think we should cut off our nose to spite our face.  We need to work to end the programs that encourage this behavior and help inform women so they can make better decisions when voting.</p> </blockquote> <p>So in other words, ‘I don’t share the same views as many women so let’s deny them all the right to vote’.</p> <p>While we’re at it, let’s revoke the right to vote from men since I disagree with many of them, too.</p> </blockquote> <p>Once again, I’m not advocating anything.

I’ve seen people make your argument before, and it’s more than idiotic to blame the spread of liberalism and degeneracy on women and women alone seeing as many men are liberal and take those views to positions of power and act on them [See: LBJ, Obama, etc.]. A country where women have no place in politics would look like Saudi Arabia. I consider your argument against women keeping the right to vote weak, and that’s just my opinion.</p> </blockquote> <p>No, dear. You’re not reading what I’m saying because you’re completely misrepresenting what my point was.

I’m saying that I wouldn’t shed tears if this did somehow happen even though it’s just about impossible. Please actually read what I’m writing here.</strong></p> </blockquote> With all due respect, I have read what you wrote and I&rsquo;m pretty sure <a class="tumblelog" href="http://tmblr.co/micL3f9MQx--YtYVmTwJpqg">rightwinged</a> has too. I strongly disagree. You are essentially saying that women gaining the right to vote has had an adverse effect on politics. I just totally disagree with that. There are plenty of uninformed men just as there are women. I don&rsquo;t believe for a moment that women voting is the cause for the spread of liberalism. It doesn&rsquo;t matter that you aren&rsquo;t &ldquo;advocating anything&rdquo;, you are in fact saying that you wouldn&rsquo;t mind women not being able to vote, which is essentially advocating it by proxy. It&rsquo;s like the people who say they are pro-choice even though they&rsquo;re personally against abortion. Now to be clear, I don&rsquo;t think your opinion is tantamount to abortion in any way, I&rsquo;m just comparing the nature of the statement. It&rsquo;s really hard to say &ldquo;I wouldn&rsquo;t mind if this thing happened, but I&rsquo;m not supporting it happening.&rdquo; I believe that it is in fact important for all American people to have the right to vote. I would care very much if it were taken away from me.
