Shakespeare: penfairy oh! I have to tell you guys a great story one of my professors told me. So he has a friend who is involved in these Shakespeare outreach programs where they try to bring Shakespeare and live theatre to poor and underprivileged groups and teach them about English literature and performing arts and such. On one of their tours they stopped at a young offenders institute for women and they put on a performance of Romeo and Juliet for a group of 16-17 year old girls. It was all going really well and the girls were enjoying and laughing through the first half- because really, the first half is pretty much a comedy-but as the play went on, things started to get quiet. Real quiet. Then it got up to the suicide scene and mutterings broke out and all the girls were nudging each other and looking distressed, and as this teacher observed them, he realised-they didn't know how the play ended. These girls had never been exposed to the story of Romeo and Juliet before, something which he thought was impossible given how ubiquitous it is in our culture. I mean, the prologue even gives the ending away, but of course it doesn't specify exactly how the whole "take their life" thing goes down, so these poor girls had no idea what to expect and were sitting there clinging to hope that Romeo would maybe sit down for a damn minute instead of murdering Paris and chugging poison but BAM he died and they all cried out and then Juliet WOKE UP and they SCREAMED and by the end of the play they were so upset that a brawl nearly broke out, and that's the story of how Shakespeare nearly started a riot at a juvenile detention centre dukeofbookingham Apparently something similar happened during a production of Much Ado at Rikers Island because a bunch of inmates wanted to beat the shit out of Claudio, which is more than fair tbh maha-pambata-is-my-patronus honestly Shakespeare would be so pleased to know his plays were nearly starting brawls centuries into the future jabberwockypie Beating the shit out of Claudio is definitely a fair and reasonable response, honestly Source: penfairy Shakespeare

zsl-edge-of-existence: The number one killer of wild California condors is lead poisoning.  Hunters shoot game animals with lead ammunition, and leave the bullet/cartridge fragments in the carcass.  Condors have exceptionally strong digestive acids, which means that they actually digest the ammo and the lead enters their system, eventually killing them.  Despite outreach programs and publicity campaigns pleading with hunters to stop using lead shot, the deaths continue.  Some ecologists believe that the population of wild condors will only become sustainable if the use of lead shot is outright banned, which will not occur until at least 2019.   The coastal populations of condor are less vulnerable to lead poisoning, but another threat has raised its ugly head; mercury and DDT.  DDT dumped into the ocean from the 1940s to the 1970s is still making its way through the food chain, and is now being found in high concentrations in the fat of marine mammals such as whales and sea lions.  When the carcasses of these animals wash up on the shore, condors devour the tainted fat, which then causes females to lay thin-shelled eggs that are often crushed by the weight of the parents.  It’s estimated that the chance of a condor in this area successfully hatching an egg is only 20 to 40 percent. : zsl-edge-of-existence: The number one killer of wild California condors is lead poisoning.  Hunters shoot game animals with lead ammunition, and leave the bullet/cartridge fragments in the carcass.  Condors have exceptionally strong digestive acids, which means that they actually digest the ammo and the lead enters their system, eventually killing them.  Despite outreach programs and publicity campaigns pleading with hunters to stop using lead shot, the deaths continue.  Some ecologists believe that the population of wild condors will only become sustainable if the use of lead shot is outright banned, which will not occur until at least 2019.   The coastal populations of condor are less vulnerable to lead poisoning, but another threat has raised its ugly head; mercury and DDT.  DDT dumped into the ocean from the 1940s to the 1970s is still making its way through the food chain, and is now being found in high concentrations in the fat of marine mammals such as whales and sea lions.  When the carcasses of these animals wash up on the shore, condors devour the tainted fat, which then causes females to lay thin-shelled eggs that are often crushed by the weight of the parents.  It’s estimated that the chance of a condor in this area successfully hatching an egg is only 20 to 40 percent.

c-bassmeow: In the PBS debate Clinton tried to say Sanders voted against an immigration bill for anti Latino reasons yet the truth is that LULAC (a Latino organization) and the southern poverty law center and many progressive groups were against this bill and Bernie voted against it because it would have created harsh work conditions for many immigrant workers he wasn’t willing to allow more in just for slavery like conditions to happen from the guest worker programs .

Male victims of abuse being dismissed, blamed or ridiculed because they weren’t “manly” enough is a part of patriarchy. And you can raise awareness of that without dismissing other feminist issues or bringing it up as a “counter argument” to problems women face.MRAs, take note. This is how you actually support men’s rights.I really really appreciate that the SVU cast is so deeply involved in real-life outreach.
