Now You Know (Source)

This is an important event in history, especially Canadian and feminist history. So I’m going to tell you more about it.
1) The shooter had been rejected from Ecole Polytechnique prior to the shooting. He blamed this on these female students, claiming that they were feminists who ruined his life.
2) In the first classroom he entered, he demanded the men leave before shooting at the women. No man attempted to stop him as they left. Take that as you will. (Later on, several men did get injured trying to stop him in the hallways.)
3) In his suicide letter, he believed that feminists were attempting to be more powerful than men, and were trying to take men’s rights away.4) Feminists were actually blamed by some for the massacre. The line of logic was “if feminists didn’t make women’s rights an issue, Levine wouldn’t have wanted to kill feminists!” Victim blaming at its finest.
5) The mainstream news media often did not publicize the outrage from women’s groups, and often preferred those who took a calm approach. Ironic, that.
6) Despite him literally having a hit list of feminist icons in his final letter, several newscasters questioned whether or not the shooting was a sexist act, some even denying the idea outright.
8) Many memorials for the victims have been created, and rightly so; however, some prominent ones were erected in poor neighbourhoods where many Native women were killed every day in the same time period as the shooting (see: Marker of Change, Vancouver) (see: Missing Women, Vancouver). Basically, white feminism happened. 
The entire event was nothing short of a tragedy, and I recommend that everyone read up on it and the resulting aftermath. It’s… interesting to see how the media tried to turn it into a random act of psychopathy instead of what it was (we know better now, luckily). The reactions (memorials, etc) to the deaths of these 14 White, middle class women as compared to the deaths of 60+ Native, lower class women are also “interesting” to compare. (By interesting, I mean infuriating.)

Interesting to note - his suicide note listed 19 feminists he wished he had also killed. He wrote:
"Nearly died today. The lack of time (because I started too late) has allowed these radical feminists to survive.Alea Jacta Est.”
So people who say “kill all radfems,” that’s quite some company you keep.

WHERE IS THIS CHILDS PARENT

whys this kid stealing all my moves 

phuggish:

Sometimes I forget. I think about me, my family and my life, I forget about the world. I forget that people are dying all around the world. I forget to thank God for what I have, I forget that my life is not as tough as I believe it is. I go around worrying about my weight, my nail polish, what new song is out, what just happened on Instagram or Tumblr. I am afraid that I am only human and forgetting is normal I guess but tonight I remembered and I will pray, not for me, I will pray for the world and I will ask God for forgiveness for forgetting.

Until you’re about the age of twenty, you read everything, and you like it simply because you are reading it. Then between twenty and thirty you pick what you want, and you read the best, you read all the great works. After that you sit and wait for them to be written. But you know, the least known, the least famous writers, they are the better ones.

Rest in peace, Gabriel García Márquez.
