okay so i read through that thread and i am honestly so confused why are people so excited to do jury duty??
Yeah I read through it too and I can see why some people might be excited (the whole ‘being in the know’ factor. The excitement of doing something they’ve only really seen on TV or in movies) but as a legal studies student, I think it would be interesting but not exciting. In fact it would be very confronting and hard.
Besides, the judical system we have is really flawed so I guess I don’t see the excitment in being a part of that. I’d much rather we have the inquisitorial system like the french (althought it too is flawed in ways, it’s is far less flawed then our system)
School teaches you that ignorance is shameful, rather than being a person’s default AND ENTIRELY FIXABLE state. Sucks the fun outta learning, if you let it.
Will always reblog.
XKCD is my favorite comic of all time, for this reason. Tumblr could learn a huge lesson, especially from this comic.
if someone doesn’t know something, or says something wrong, do not shame them, teach them.
notably there is a threshold here where the ignorance overlaps with ‘being a decent human being’ and it is entirely justifiable to be hurt and angry at people who are being fucking horrible even if they’re doing so out of ignorance.
I say this because I’ve seen a LOT of people use this comic as a reference for why it’s the injured party’s job to educate them and not be angry or hurt by their ignorance.
basically i want a crime show that’s dedicated to exploring the ways gender, race, class, disability, and sexually are dealt with by the police force and the media. and is also interesting and has pretty cinematography and vampires maybe.
did you mean BBC Sherlock?
no i absolutely did not

Lets take a minute to appreciate this photoset.
I kept scrolling and the men just kept getting hotter and hotter.
I just realized that in POA not only does Snape teach about werewolves because he hopes someone notices Lupin’s lyncanthropy, but he also takes away Remus’ opportunity to teach about them as they should be, not as monsters, but as afflicted people.

the best thing about oitnb is that most of the inmates look realistically tired and unkempt and don’t wear makeup and then there’s laverne cox looking like she just walked off the red carpet 100% of the time
