Students at the University of Michigan’s LGBT* Issues Commission express why they need intersectional feminism during their meeting this last Sunday.
Honestly, I’ve never understood how feminism could ignore everyone who isn’t white, cisgender, straight and female.
My feminiism will be intersectional, or it will be bullshit.
Friendly reminder that the term “intersectional feminism” was created by a black feminist named Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw to talk about how race and gender intersect for women of color, not to describe an all inclusive feminism. We need a different term for this and to stop appropriating this from black feminists.
Having to google internet slang your friend is using because you have no idea what the fuck it means.
If this Bey X Nicki collab happens……it will be so………………..*chokes* I….C….O….N….I……C. Can you imagine Nicki’s raw lyrics and Beyonce’s seduction and flow like a rapper voice on a track?….
Found! First Earth-Size Planet That Could Potentially Support Life
Astronomers have discovered a planet about the size of Earth,
orbiting its star in the zone where oceans of liquid water would be possible.
A study of the newly-found planet indicates it could have an Earth-like atmosphere and water at its surface. The planet Kepler-186f is the fifth planet of the star Kepler-186, 490 light-years away.
The planet has 1.11 times the Earth’s mass. Its radius is 1.1 times that of Earth. Kepler-186f orbits at 32.5 million miles (52.4 million kilometers) from its parent star. Its year is 130 Earth days.
The planet orbits Kepler-186, an M-type dwarf star less than half as massive as the sun. Because the star is cooler than the sun, the planet receives solar energy less intense than that received by Mars in our solar system, despite the fact that Kepler-186f orbits much closer to its star.
guys this isn’t just some science jerk-offery. This is legitimately the first confirmed exoplanet that fulfils all of NASA’s main prerequisites, same mass, same density, rocky, right zone in terms of heat, it may even have an atmosphere.
Soon we’re launching a satellite code named “Star Shade”, which although it sounds badass is literal- it’s a massive unfurling shade that will allow a powerful telescope to TAKE PHOTOS of these goddamn planets, no doubt this one will be first on the list, to see what they look like.
PHOTOS, EVERYBODY. PHOTOS.
I say we name it in honour of Carl Sagan who first brought serious investigation into finding exoplanets in a time where people didn’t even believe they existed, yet.
