    Female BAMFs Throughout History

  2. The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation.
    For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.

    Hehe equality right?

    Do you not understand the purpose of this, or why the prices are what they are? Does this need to be explained to you?

    Oh yea right, the famous “wage gap” between men and women that has been debunked tons of times! That sure is the right argument to fight sexism with!

    Not debunked, misrepresented, as it is a complicated issue. It’s honestly more accurate to call it a PAY gap than a WAGE gap, since there are a myriad of factors at play here. Women DO, on average, make less money than men. That is indisputable, and the margins widen when you include factors of race, disability, and sexuality. 

    Here’s a good starter resource on it. 

    IF you would like some more in depth reading:

    This one is from Stanford about the Gender Pay Gap

    This is a New York Times article looking at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s report on the topic.

    This one is from the International Trade Union Confederation 

    This one is from Oxford, titled Up the Down Staircase: Women’s Upward Mobility and the Wage Penalty for Occupational Feminization

    You can also look at the US Census’s look at the Pay Gap

    Or the Institute for Women’s Policy Research

    Even the United States Government Accountability Office has some information on it.

    So yes, the bake sale above is a pretty simplistic little stunt about a complicated economic and social issue. But the fact that it pisses people off sort of makes its point for it. 

    Excellent primary sources for those concerned about sex based oppression/ how men continually benefit from female subjugation also I would really like one of those Vegan cupcakes

    4 of the largest Moons of Jupiter

    1. Io
    2. Ganymede
    3. Europa
    4. Callisto

    Io is the innermost of the four Galilean moons of the planet Jupiter and, with a diameter of 3,642 kilometres the fourth-largest moon in the Solar System. Io played a significant role in the development of astronomy in the 17th and 18th centuries. It was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei, along with the other Galilean satellites. It was named after the mythological character Io, a priestess of Hera who became one of Zeus’s lovers. With over 400 active volcanoes, Io is the most geologically active object in the Solar System.

    Ganymede is a satellite of Jupiter and the largest moon in the Solar System. It is the seventh moon and third Galilean satellite outward from Jupiter. Ganymede’s discovery is credited to Galileo Galilei, who was the first to observe it on January 7, 1610.The satellite’s name was soon suggested by astronomer Simon Marius, for the mythological Ganymede, cupbearer of the Greek gods and Zeus’s lover

    Europa is the sixth-closest moon of the planet Jupiter, and the smallest of its four Galilean satellites, but still the sixth-largest moon in the Solar System. Europa was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei and possibly independently by Simon Marius around the same time. It is named after a Phoenician noblewoman in Greek mythology, Europa, who was courted by Zeus and became the queen of Crete

    Callisto is a moon of the planet Jupiter. It was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei. It is the third-largest moon in the Solar System and the second largest in the Jovian system, after Ganymede. Callisto has about 99% the diameter of the planet Mercury but only about a third of its mass. It is the fourth Galilean moon of Jupiter by distance, with an orbital radius of about 1,880,000 km.Callisto is named after one of Zeus's many lovers in Greek mythology.
