#CommonCore This is how the Government gets the unemployment rate.



What. The. Fuck. Is. This. Shit.

what “progressive” education in america is turning into.

THE FUCK’S THIS SHIT

what the hell is that supposed to even mean? I had to read over the explanation twice, and I’m taking algebra 2. 

I’m taking fucking Calculus and I don’t get what the teacher is trying to do.
8+5=13. You can’t take 2 out of 5 and have 3 left over and just sitting in the side with nowhere to go. Math doesn’t work like that. AND, MR OR MRS TEACHER, YOU CERTAINLY CAN’T ADD 3 TO 8+2 BECAUSE YOU STILL GET 13
YOU ALREADY DID 8+2=10 YOU GOT 10 WHY DO YOU ADD 3?! YOU WON’T HAVE 10 ANYMORE YOU’LL HAVE 13
WHICH IS WHAT 8+5 IS SUPPOSED TO FUCKING EQUAL
GODDAMMIT

There’s a whole bunch of common core “examples” going around the internet right now and everyone is completely up in arms. Let me start by saying the common core is not faultless, and there are a lot of real critiques people are making.
THIS IS NOT WHAT THE COMMON CORE HAS TEACHERS TEACH. I don’t know where all these “examples” are coming from, but as an elementary school teacher, I promise you, this is not what it’s about. Having this all over the internet is not only frustrating, its detrimental to the real cases people are making. 

So please stop shouting about this text and the others like it. They are not grounded in the common core and they’re covering up the real struggle teachers and administrators are going through daily.

At the end of the day, this show is awesome because the characters are genuinely great people.

Sometimes comedies forget that you can be good … and still be funny.

Oh, Supernatural. Yes. These are his actual lines.

#perhaps it’s the fact that twelve has a pose all about power and control while clara is all demure #he looks straight into the camera #challenging it #while she smiles sweetly and looks off to the side #one leg bent - one hand on the console #unsteady almost #certainly staged #this just has heteronormative gender roles written all over it #the oncoming patriarchy #is all i can see

PRAISE THE TAGS


PRAISE THEM.
And in contrast, observe Rose Tyler, BAMF, in promo stills for Series 1:






Firmly rooted. Looking straight at the camera. NOT smiling.  Even when Nine is guarding her with his body, she’s directly engaging with whatever they’re confronting. And sometimes she’s looking at the viewer, or the action, and Nine is looking at *her*.  She’s a force to be reckoned with. She’s a force to be reckoned with.


#excellent tags are excellent#jfc moffat#twelfth doctor#clara oswald#the oncoming patriarchy#in contrast with#ninth doctor#rose tyler#bamf#i know that’s a lot of pictures#but i kept looking for counterexamples#and there weren’t any#someone who’s got more martha and donna promo pictures handy#should do some examples of their presentation

(credit to tragicalhistorytour)
/w martha



/w donna




and some more promo pics of rose but hanging out w/ ten:



honestly is rather hard to find promo pics from the 2005/2009(?) years where the doctor and the companion aren’t shown to be in equal footing, the closest i could find to the above situation was this, but it is a) not a very common shot?  i don’t remember eer seeing this particular ver of the promo pic, and b) rose is still showing a very confident stance, even if she’s not directly adressing the viewer like ten.

orrr maybe this one w/ donna? i think this one was used in one of the recent blue ray covers for s4.

ps LET’S NOT FORGET THAT amy promos started like this:

and ended like this:


I just want to point out the tag: “the oncoming patriarchy,” because its fucking hilarious.

Imagine James Potter getting wasted and making a bet with Sirius that he can totally transform into his Animagus shape no biggie - and it goes fine but then he’s too drunk to change back and Muggles get confronted with this really drunk deer roaming the streets pursued by a man who can’t stop laughing

“[Spiderman] represents the everyman, but he represents the underdog and those marginalized who come up against great prejudice which I, as a middle-class straight, white man, don’t really understand so much. And when Stan Lee first wrote and created this character, the outcast was the computer nerd, was the science nerd, was the guy that couldn’t get the girl. Those guys now run the world. So how much of an outcast is that version of Peter Parker anymore? That’s my question.”

Part of Andrew Garfield’s response to people being all butthurt when he mentioned a possibility where Spiderman might not be straight.

SPN Drama

As I don’t even watch the show anymore, I’m unsure as why I feel the need to put in my two cents over Jensen’s last statement that has gotten people up in arms, but apparently I’m a glutton for punishment (read: I may not watch it anymore but I still really fucking care about the characters and the fandom). Under the cut so you can feel free to ignore.
