this might go over the heads of some of the kids on here.
did you just
This is the greatest post I have ever seen because it is both a pun and a harsh truth.
I showed this to my 11 year old brother and asked him if he knew what it was. He looked at it for a few seconds and said
"I dunno. a printer?"
i’m 15 and i don’t get it
It’s called an overhead projector. Back in the 80s and 90s (when I was in school), these things were used to project images of lessons onto a movie screen in your classroom. Teachers would write/draw/whatever onto a clear piece of plastic called a transparency, which would then be placed on top of the main box part of the projector. When turned on, there would be a light underneath the projector, which would cause a mirror inside the ‘arm’ part to reflect the image onto the screen in an enlarged format so everyone could see it.
Reblogging for ‘over their heads’.
I hardly see these now. Kinda sad.
I don’t understand why this is sad for people. It’s not like its a long standing family tradition that’s going away, it’s old technology being replaced by new technology. Sunrise, sunset.
Most kids on this website don’t even know what this is
That’s a coffee table

This was not an exaggeration. The government ignored the issue of HIV/AIDS for years before anything was done. Gay and Queer communities had to form their own clinics because no government agencies cared for them. Back then, being diagnosed was equivalent to a death sentence or extreme debt and poor quality of life/a significantly shortened lifespan.
Things got so desperate that people literally had “Die-Ins”— in contemporary usage this refers to masses of people simulating death in order to protest something (like the War in Iraq). In this case, however, fatally sick people would literally lie down in public places and protest with what little energy they had left until they died. There is some footage of a church Die-In in the documentary Beyond Stonewall. The middle image here of that person’s jacket is not an extreme political statement; it’s what people had to do because they had no other options.
queer politics aren’t all hrc t-shirts and shiny lobbying. So many people have already forgotten this extremely recent history.
Some examples of how “men’s rights activists” are threatening and intimidating feminists. There is absolutely no justification for this kind of behavior, and I urge all anti-feminist men (and anti-feminist others) to at the very least not stoop to the level of threatening atrocities or publishing someone’s personal information. I may not agree with your points of contention when it comes to the feminist movement, but that will never cause me to harm you or your family. AVFM and similar MRA groups need to be stopped, for the safety of society as a whole.
