My generation got a cheap college education when we were young, and we’re getting good retirement benefits now that we’re old. Pretty nice. But now we’re turning around and telling today’s twentysomethings that they should pay through the nose for college, keep paying taxes for our retirements, and oh by the way, when it comes time for you to retire your benefits are going to have to be cut. So sorry.
And THEN you’re telling them that they’re the most spoiled, entitled, self-absorbed generation in history. It’s stupid and gross. Love, Rachel
Yeah, we got some entitled selfish jerks in our generation, but really, the Boomers are the most entitled, selfish generation as a whole. They want their benefits without having to pay for them.
The selfish, entitled jerks in our generation learned their selfish, entitled behavior from their selfish, entitled parents. Which, surprise, surprise, happen to be Boomers.

The Legend of Zelda main shields (1986-2013)
Many of these shields appear in different games, with various designs. I picked the main ones (almost all of them, except some from minigames or non-cannon games) with designs from different games. Credit of some of the artitstic representations used here (mainly the ones from 2D games or games without artbooks) belong to BLUEamnesiac.
Everyone, of course, told Glatt the suit was “career suicide.” Glatt, who has an MBA from Case Western Reserve, however, is not your typical just-out-of-college broke 20-something. He was in a unique financial position to take that kind of risk. Once he put together the case and found lawyers to take it on, Footman felt compelled to join. “I’d been unhappy about what had happened, about the internship and the six months of my life that I would have spent doing something else,” Footman said. “But I didn’t know that we had any sort of actual grounds for a lawsuit until Eric approached me.
fun fact: iraq, pakistan, afghanistan and saudi arabia have a higher percentage of women in the government than the us & the uk
another fun fact: white people tend to get very angry when you point this out to them

In a way, Kanye’s entire discography is leading to this (probable) point—his first two records were about reaching the top, Graduation was about loving life there, 808’s and Heartbreak was how the top can fuck up your personal life, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was about growing restless at the top, and Watch the Throne found him and Jay-Z negotiating the idea of why there weren’t more black men at the top. And now, it seems, Kanye’s taking stock of the world as he sees it from upon high, and deciding that he doesn’t like what’s flashing in front of his Fendi frames. The fact that the biggest black entertainer in the country even made those two records and debuted them on the beyond-white bread Saturday Night Live is huge. This isn’t Das Racist razzing a few privileged white kids at Music Hall of Williamsburg. This is Kanye West going into a million white people’s living rooms and saying, “Look at the terrible things your people have done to my people and are still doing to my people. We are not going to take it. I’m so pissed right now I wouldn’t even be here if I didn’t have something incredibly urgent to say. Fuck you.” That’s a powerful act, something that you can put up there with things that Bob Marley or Tupac did. I know that’s outlandish, but one day we’ll be holding Kanye West up next to those guys, so we might as well start now.

McRib is Back by Jonathan Devis
His teacher told him to take art more seriously… and here is his rebuttal on his final project.
Brilliance. Don’t ever let an art teacher tell you what you need to do to be an “artist”. That’s up to you. This kid fucking rules.
This does everything right
This might be my favorite tweet of all time
The feminist movement is generally periodized into the so-called first, second and third waves of feminism. In the United States, the first wave is characterized by the suffragette movement; the second wave is characterized by the formation of the National Organization for Women, abortion rights politics, and the fight for the Equal Rights Amendments. Suddenly, during the third wave of feminism, women of colour make an appearance to transform feminism into a multicultural movement.
This periodization situates white middle-class women as the central historical agents to which women of colour attach themselves. However, if we were to recognize the agency of indigenous women in an account of feminist history, we might begin with 1492 when Native women collectively resisted colonization. This would allow us to see that there are multiple feminist histories emerging from multiple communities of colour which intersect at points and diverge in others. This would not negate the contributions made by white feminists, but would de-center them from our historicizing and analysis.
Indigenous feminism thus centers anti-colonial practice within its organizing. This is critical today when you have mainstream feminist groups supporting, for example, the US bombing of Afghanistan with the claim that this bombing will free women from the Taliban (apparently bombing women somehow liberates them).
