Deathstroke is the fucking scariest because his physcopathy is caused by his fantastical obsession with a woman who never even liked him. He fucking hallucinates her standing next to him, telling him to continue to be a fucking creep. She died, tragically but not in a way that could have really been controlled. It wasn’t even really Oliver’s fault. Slade is just so maniacally obsessed it literally frightens me just on the grounds that he’s a man, and not that he’s a physcopath.
What she really means: “Treasure Planet was going to have a sequel and a tv series and instead of having either it faded into the dusty annals of obscure Disney movies that no one seems to know about.”
“We never say that all men deserve to feel beautiful. We never say that each man is beautiful in his own way. We don’t have huge campaigns aimed at young boys trying to convince them that they’re attractive, probably because we very rarely correlate a man’s worth with his appearance. The problem is that a woman’s value in this world is still very much attached to her appearance, and telling her that she should or deserves to feel beautiful does more to promote that than negate it. Telling women that they “deserve” to feel pretty plays right in to the idea that prettiness should be important to them. And having books and movies aimed at young women where every female protagonist turns out to be beautiful (whereas many of the antagonists are described in much less flattering terms) reinforces the message that beauty has some kind of morality attached to it, and that all heroines are somehow pretty.”—You Don’t Have To Be Pretty – On YA Fiction And Beauty As A Priority | The Belle Jar (via brutereason)
The oppression of Muslim women does NOT lie within the religion or the culture. It lies within patriarchy and its an issue of men oppressing women. Men are the perpetrators of the oppression of women in the middle east, not religion.

The officer claims the victim fired at him, but witnesses say he was unarmed.
The officer chased one of the men, later identified as Vonderrick Myers Jr., and claims the teenager jumped out of some bushes, struggled with him, then pulled out a gun and shot at him. The officer says he returned fire, killing Myers.
Several witnesses say Myers was unarmed. "He had a sandwich in his hand, and they thought it was a gun," said Teyonna Myers, the victim’s cousin. “It’s like Michael Brown all over again.”
According to relatives at the scene of the shooting, which is about a 25 minute drive from Ferguson, Myers worked in a warehouse and attended high school. “My nephew was coming out of a store from purchasing a sandwich. Security was supposedly searching for someone else. They Tased him,” said Jackie Williams, who said he talked with several witnesses. “I don’t know how this happened, but they went off and shot him 16 times. That’s outright murder.”
Lavell Boyd, who lives nearby, told the Post-Dispatch that he heard 14 or 15 shots while on his way to get food at a nearby store."When I pulled up I saw the cop standing over him (Myers) then he pointed the gun at everyone else telling everyone to get back while he was searching for another clip," Boyd said.
