"At Rio Americano High School in Sacramento CA, a student named Dejza, was violently assaulted by a vice principal, Matt Collier, for attempting to take back a piece of art with a political message that the administration didn’t like. She was put in a chokehold and slammed against the desk. When she tried to resist this unlawful abuse of authority, she was slammed and held onto the ground. Matt Collier laid on top of her, crushing her with his weight. Dejza could not breathe, and begged Collier to get off of her. Luckily, another faculty member came in and ended the situation. Dejza went to see a doctor for severe whiplash, and yesterday was her first day of physical therapy. Despite this being blatantly wrong and illegal, the administration has put her on suspension for resisting, and Collier was not disciplined. On the fifth day of her suspension, she will attend a meeting held by bias members of the administration to determine if she will be expelled.

They have tried to silence anyone who speaks out on social media, but today we have gathered in person for a silent sit-in protest.

Dejza has been wronged, and brutalized, and now she is receiving punishment. They’ve tried to silence her. They’ve tried to silence us.” -Grant Wright 

One of my friends Grant posted this on facebook and even though im not in Sacramento I want to help. This girl has been mistreated by a full grown man who may never be punished. I want to help spread awareness. So please, spread this around. Let people know that this is NOT okay. The more support we have, the better. 

i’m so proud to have been a part of this today but you guys please please please please reblog/spread this around any way you possibly can it’s so important and her story needs to be heard by people outside of our city because what this man did is so so so incredibly far from okay

i love in sac and i know so many ppl at rio how have i not heard anything about this?????what the fuck

To anyone who reads stories like this and thinks “well that can’t happen here…” yes. Yes it can. If it can happen here in my home town, it can happen in yours.

If you need to see that to understand that he’s gay then all is lost for any kind of subtle storytelling.

Benedict on the interviewer’s question why we do not see Alan Turing having sex in the film. 

(x)

okay you know what, this is absolute bullshit

if that’s true then why do we have to have straight sex scenes in EVERY MOVIE EVER??? I know they’re straight and in love

no one ever says this about straight historical figured in movies

IT IS NOT BAD OR UNSUBTLE STORYTELLING TO HAVE GAY CHARACTERS WHO ARE SEXUALLY ACTIVE

ESPECIALLY CONSIDERING ALAN TURING FUCKING OTHER MEN IS LITERALLY THE BEGINNING OF HIS TROUBLES

NOT BECAUSE HE LOOKED AT THEM, NOT BECAUSE THEY EXCHANGED SUBTLE GLANCES, NOT BECAUSE IT “WASN’T RELEVANT TO THE PLOT” BECAUSE IT ABSOLUTELY IS

BECAUSE ALAN TURING HAD SEX WITH OTHER MEN, BECAUSE ALAN TURING LOVED OTHER MEN WITH HIS BODY, BECAUSE ALAN TURING FUCKED MEN

AND IT WAS ILLEGAL

AND THE GOVERNMENT FORCED HIM TO POISON HIS BODY AND DETERIORATE HIS MIND

AFTER HE SAVED ENGLAND’S ASS DURING WORLD WAR II WITH THE BOMBES AND ENIGMA. AND IS THE FATHER OF MODERN AI AND MODERN COMPUTER SCIENCE

AND HE WAS ALSO GAY

AND THESE THINGS ARE NOT SEPARATE FROM EACH OTHER

HOW DARE ANYONE PULL A DUMBLEDORE ON ALAN TURING’S LIFE STORY AND SAY ANYTHING OTHERWISE WOULD BE “UNSUBTLE”

Maybe Hollywood should learn how to write gay characters without erasing part of them in the name of “subtlety”.

A movie about Alan Turing’s life cannot avoid discussing the fact that the reason he died young was because he committed the “crime” of having sex with a consenting partner of the same gender.

I will fucking cut someone my dislike for Benedict Cumberbatch has increased now to hatred. Alan Turing is one of my personal heroes. Bendydick Gofuckyourself does not deserve the honor of portraying him onscreen honestly. I already thought that before, but now I’m sure. Fuck this.

(via pinkhairedlesbianadventures)

So I guess the question is—is it worth it to make these cuts to the story in order to get a PG-13 rating? I suspect there are queer teenagers who really don’t want to tell their parents they want to see the gay mathematician movie, but is that still a thing in an age where every first-run movie can be found on sketchy download sites?

There were plenty of famous faces at the Variety at Holt Renfrew photo studio today, but Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne had eyes only for each other!
In one of the sweetest moments of the morning, the two greeted each other with big (very manly, we assure you) hugs, Redmayne actually bounding across the room when he saw his fellow Brit was in the house. While Benedict sipped on a Fiji water, the two then proceeded to have a proper chinwag, joined by Redmayne’s fiance.
The two are both serious Oscar contenders in 2015 (Cumberbatch for his film at TIFF, The Imitation Game, and Redmayne for The Theory of Everything, also at the fest) but somehow we don’t think they’re letting the competition get in the middle of this bromance.
There may also be a third member to this wolfpack (he at least has ribbing privileges): Sam Worthington. When the room needed to be silent for Worthington’s interview, Cumberbatch (very loudly) announced to the room: “Oh, it’s just Sam Worthington. Everybody keep on talking!”. [x]

That… that’s a pretty intense look. So, is this the relationship Rebecca Eaton helped start, or no?

“You see, the reasons - which are very important - are the causes behind this. That’s because there are things that make it so we can’t do this, like reasons. As we said, the reasons, are very important. It’s almost like there are obstacles ahead of us, which there aren’t, but it’s AS IF there are. So we can’t do it, because of the important reasons and the obstacles, which are imaginary, but scary like dreams.”

— Anyone from Marvel (ever) on why they aren’t making a film starring a female superhero (ever). (via westerlingss)

Ah, I see they got their arguments from “How To Combat Gay Marriage In Court” or whatever strategy guide NOM is using these days. To be fair, when you have neither data nor principle on your side all you have is “Because reasons.”
