Pluto is not a planet. The IAU (in my book) gets to decide what the definition of a planet is because there has to be a definition and they are by far the most qualified body to define it.
Pluto does not meet that definition, and thus should not be considered a planet. I agree with their definition, but even if I didn’t I would submit to it because I am not an expert.
Recently, three people sat in a room and argued about whether pluto was a planet. The audience then voted…and they voted that Pluto was a planet. That, of course, means nothing. If you want random groups of people to define scientific terms…it’s going to be hard to get any actual science done.
VIVA LA PLUTO
You really didn’t read what was just in front of you, did you?
I’m joking relax
Science is cool, science is funny, science is more amazing than anything else in the universe, because it IS the universe.
Not something I like to be lax about. Don’t be a dick. That’s not funny.
"We can't go against that guy! We're nerds!"
"Trust me. I know about robotics. We can be way more."
No. They want her to stop talking about misogyny in video games because they want women to stop gaming. They want people to stop caring about misogyny in video games because everyone agrees that women just shouldn’t game. They want women out of gaming culture so they don’t have to think about women as people. They want to have a space where no one will complain about misogyny because they don’t see it as a problem, and they think women won’t receive these kinds of threats if they just shut up and bake cookies and let men do the talking.
This “how they’d feel if their mom…” line of thinking is such bullshit because you know what? They might not like the abuse the woman in question was receiving but they would agree with it. They would tell the woman in question to be quieter, to step back, to just leave it to them. I’ve heard them do/say exactly those things. “Well, you brought in on yourself.” “You know how it is.” “I wouldn’t say it that way but they’re right.”
These “trolls” are enjoying it. They are having fun. This is fantasyland for them. They have an excuse, a justification that has brought them social approval within their circle, to unleash the things they spend the rest of their lives not saying about women. They don’t want Sarkeesian to stop. They want to beat her. Her stopping is not good enough. Her consenting to quit is not good enough. They want to make her stop. They want to win.
It is the abrogation of her consent and the pain they cause her—and, by proxy, those who relate to her—that brings them the most pleasure. They do not get the same thrill if she walks away. It is not enough for her to shut up. They have to ignore her “no”, silence her voice, cause her pain, and ensure that others like her know they’ve done it without any consequence in order to get their full thrill.
If that sounds sociopathic, abusive, rape-y, and worse to you—then you’re getting the idea.

HOW THE FUCK DID THE PERCENTAGE GO UP FOR WHITE PEOPLE
IN WHAT UNIVERSE DOES A POLICE OFFICER SHOOTING AN UNARMED BLACK KID (AND THEN ATTEMPTING TO COVER IT UP AFTER THE FACT) CONSTITUTE EQUAL TREATMENT IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM
LIKE WHO LOOKS AT THAT AND GOES “WELL, BEFORE I THOUGHT THAT THERE WAS RACISM IN OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM, BUT THEN THIS SHIT HAPPENED AND NOW I SEE THAT IT’S PERFECTLY EQUAL”
WHAT THE FUCK
This increase can be explained by an interesting social phenomenon called ‘denial.’
They benefit from not knowing.. and from believing in myths.
Comparing beliefs before and after Michael Brown’s murder and the surrounding revelations of racism that have sprung out of it, white people, as a demographic believe, MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, that the criminal justice system treats whites and blacks equally.
That is, MORE white people believe the criminal justice system treats black equally now than they did before Michael Brown’s death.
In essence, for white people, blatant systemic oppression and the murder of an unarmed young black man gives them even more reason to believe blacks are treated fairly by the system.
This confirms an earlier study that said the more you tell white people that the system is inherently racist, the more they supported harsher punishments for black people: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2014/08/07/3468368/study-white-people-support-harsher-criminal-laws-if-they-think-more-black-people-are-arrested/
