"

Denying that women are a victimized class is simply wrong. What else would you call a segment of the population who are systematically discriminated against in school, work and politics? How would you describe a population whose bodies are objectified to the point of dehumanization? Women are harassed, attacked and sexually assaulted with alarming regularity in America and around the world, and now even more of them live in states where, if pregnant, they can be refused medical attention or arrested for refusing C-sections.

People who are on the shit end of oppression are oppressed. Accurately describing this is not a matter of politics, but of truth.

Feminism makes women ‘victims’? I think you’ve mistaken us for the sexists, my latest at the Guardian (responding to #WomenAgainstFeminism)

The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death

Frances Glessner Lee, a millionaire heiress, revolutionized the study of forensics and crime scene investigation. She believed that crimes could be solved by a detailed analysis of visual and material evidence.

She used newspaper reports, and interviews with policemen and morgue workers to create miniture crime scenes(which were extremely detailed) such as suicides, accidental deaths, accidents as homicides and homicide, potentially, as suicides. Of the twenty she made, eighteen have survived and of those eighteen, eleven show violent deaths of women. Everything from the wallpaper to the presence of alcohol and drugs was added to the miniture crime scenes.

This helped investigators train to identify crimes and clues found at crime scenes and left a big mark on the field as we know it today. They were also used in Harvard Associates in Police Science (HAPS) seminars. She called them nutshell cases, a name that was inspired by a detective who told her this:

As the investigator, you must bear in mind that there is a two-fold responsibility—to clear the innocent as well as expose the guilty. Seek only the facts—Find the truth in a Nutshell.

Gotham Academy Order Code!
Tell your local comic shop to secure you a copy (or several)! On the shelves October 1st!
Order #AUG140201

I never thought I’d decide to pre-order another Gotham book again. But an all-POC main cast and at least two of which are girls? I couldn’t resist.

eyyyy so this part 1 of a commission for a super cool person whose girlfriend came up with an A+ AU, lemme just copypaste the summary of it mmyes

"1930s Gravity Falls AU where Uncle Stan’s a bootlegger who runs a still, and maybe a moldy little sideshow as well. When the kids move in one summer he soon has them running rum all through the valley (vintage car chases with the deputies optional, but encouraged) and in their spare time, they investigate all the usual bizarre goings-on in Gravity Falls. She also thought maybe Li’l Gideon would be some kind of tent revival preacher boy, whom Mabel kept having to fend off."

I AM SO ON BOARD WITH THIS

this was so much fun and there’s more to come yeayeayea

Sophia’s Spotlight: an endless list of awesome things
Presenting today’s feature:
Maggie Fitzgerald and the Saltwater Drip by antistar_e (kaikamahine)
Summary: Google politely tells her there are no poisonous spiders in Manhattan. Judging by her symptoms — fever, superstrength, newfound desire to shove herself into small dark spaces, and sudden reputation as a masked vigilante — Gwen would beg to differ. [Spider!Gwen AU.] Warnings for SPIDERS. LOTS OF SPIDERS. Blood and minor amounts of gore. Direct displays and discussion of racism, sexism, ableism, and police brutality. Offscreen references to rape, rape culture, gun violence, gun culture.
Why everyone should read it: Do you ever read those fics that are so good it kind of changes your life? You know, where the worldbuilding is fantastic, the characters are spot-on, the dialogue is clever, and the writing is totally solid? Where it takes all the stuff that bothers you about the source material and makes it a thousand times better? And not only that, but actively examines racism, sexism, rape culture, police brutality, etc. in a way that feel especially relevant considering real world events? Where you actually can no longer accept any other version of this fictional universe, even the original canon? And oh yeah, the word count is almost 80k?
This is that fic.
