thedragonflywarrior:

The head-turning Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie is a towering 6ft 3in tall and admits she often felt she couldn’t relate to women on the big screen because of her Amazonian frame, but is now relishing the opportunity to play a tough, fierce warrior in the medieval fantasy drama.

She said: “It’s really vitally important to me the way women are portrayed. As someone who has always felt at times pretty genderless because of my size, it interests me to challenge ideas of prejudice and femininity, and what it is to be a woman.”

The towering actress reveals that she had numerous setbacks in her career before landing a prized role as Brienne of Tarth in the hit show, adding: “I found it so frustrating, particularly at the beginning, because I would be told, ‘Sorry love, you’re too tall.’ At one stage I was like, ‘I’ll give this another six months and if this persists, ‘I’ll become a nun.’ “

For her role as warrior Brienne, Gwendoline trained how to fight with swords and ride horses and says it’s “empowering” to know she can “break a man’s nose with my elbow.”

"I do all my own stunts and come away with bruises and scratches. After one scene I was absolutely covered in bruises all down one leg and up one arm. But it’s worth it. It’s quite fun. I enjoy knocking around with the boys."

I cannot get enough of this woman. She deserves all the awards.

Please watch it.

So disgusting.

FINALLY. WATCH THIS EVERYONE.

I don’t even like Kristen Stewart, actually I loathe her acting. But what these people do is deplorable. 

I respect Kristen Stewart so much, because I know that if I were her, I had had a nervous breakdown years ago due to all the harassment she has to go through with the paparazzi every day. I think she is underrated as an actress because of her role as Bella Swan. She is really talented in other stuff I have seen her in like Catch That Kid, The Runaways and Panic Room. But people have already decided how they want to perceive her and she has given up on proving them wrong because her tries have seemed in vain so far. 

People forget that she is only 24 and most importantly, that she is just a human being. I’d like to see you take that kind of treatment every day no matter where you went and have you not turn just a bit cynical and mean-spirited towards people like this whose very job is to be obnoxious and respect-less towards other people’s private sphere.

It seems to be very easy to hate and very difficult to respect, care and love in this world. It’s “uncool” apparently.

Try it though, it’s really not that hard once you’ve done it.

10 Black Scientists You Should Know

by 

1. Ernest Everett Just

In 1916, Ernest Everett Just became the first black man to earn a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in experimental embryology, but perhaps his greatest legacy is the sheer amount of scientific papers he authored during his career.

Just was born in 1883 and raised in Charleston, S.C., where he knew from an early age he was headed for college. He studied zoology and cell development at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H., and worked as a biochemist studying cells at Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory in Massachusetts. He became a biology instructor at Howard University before finishing his Ph.D., and would spend 20 summers also working at Woods Hole. From 1920 to 1931 he was awarded a biology fellowship by the National Research Council. Just pioneered research into cell fertilization, division, hydration and the effects of carcinogenic radiation on cells.

Frustrated that no major American university would hire him because of racism, Just relocated to Europe in 1930. Once there, he wrote the bulk of his 70 professional papers, as well as two books. He died of pancreatic cancer in 1941 [sources: BiographyGeneticsGwinnet County Public Schools].

2. Patricia Bath

Patricia Bath improved the vision of generations thanks to her invention for cataract treatment.

Born in 1942, Bath’s educational achievements began early. She graduated high school in only two years, then earned a bachelor’s degree from Hunter College and a medical degree from Howard University before accepting an ophthalmology fellowship at Columbia University. It was during this fellowship that Bath’s research uncovered some staggering statistics: When compared with her other patients, blacks were eight times more likely to develop glaucoma and twice as likely to go blind from it. She set her sights on developing a process to increase eye care for people unable to pay, now called community ophthalmology, which operates worldwide. Bath became the first African-American to complete a residency in ophthalmology in 1973, and the first woman to join the ophthalmology department at UCLA in 1975.

By 1981, Bath was hard at work on her most notable invention, a laser probe that precisely treated cataracts with less pain to the patient. Using the laserphaco probe she devised, she was able to restore sight to patients who had been blind for as long as 30 years. In 1988, she became the first black female doctor to receive a patent for a medical purpose. Since her retirement in 1993, Bath continues to advocate for the medically underserved and has focused on the use of technology to offer medical services in remote regions [source: Biography].

3. Marie Maynard Daly

Marie Maynard Daly was a pioneer in the study of the effects of cholesterol and sugar on the heart and the first black woman to earn a Ph.D. in chemistry in the United States. She was born in 1921, at a time when minority women often were denied educational and employment opportunities, but she didn’t allow prejudice to stop her pursuit of the sciences. By 1942, she had earned a bachelor’s degree in chemistry with honors from Queens College in New York. She went on to complete a master’s degree, also in chemistry, just one year later.

It was while earning her doctoral degree from Columbia University that Daly’s research really began to gel. She discovered how internally produced compounds help digestion and spent much of her career as a professor researching cell nuclei. Importantly, she discovered the link between high cholesterol and clogged arteries, which helped advance the study of heart disease. She also studied the effects of sugar on arteries, and cigarette smoking on lung tissue. Daly established a scholarship fund for black students at Queens College in 1988. She died in 2003 [sources: African-American Pioneers in ScienceChemical Heritage Foundation].

4. David Harold Blackwell

David Harold Blackwell was one of the world’s most notable statisticians, but as a child he didn’t particularly like math. That was until he met the right teacher who opened a numerical world to him.

Blackwell, born in 1919, grew up in southern Illinois and by 16 was enrolled at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. At 22, he graduated from his home state university with a doctoral degree in mathematics and then studied at Princeton. Although Blackwell aspired to a teaching position, racial bias closed doors; he was denied posts at Princeton and at the University of California at Berkeley. However, he was offered a position at Howard University. (Berkeley later offered Blackwell a teaching job, and he became the university’s first black tenured professor in 1954).

While at Howard, Blackwell studied game theory and how it applied to decision-making in the government and private sectors during summers at RAND Corp. He became the United States’ leading expert on the subject, authoring a widely respected textbook on game theory, as well as research that resulted in several theorems named for him. One such theory, which explains how to turn rough guesses into on-target estimates, is known as the Rao-Blackwell theorem and remains an integral part of modern economics. In 1965, he became the first African-American to be inducted into the National Academy of Sciences. He died in 2010 [sources: SandersSorkin].

Rock Quotes

NO! Jealousy is never okay, no matter which gender you belong to. And guys are not just cute when they are jealous. There are actual abusive assholes out there who will use their jealousy as justification for mistreating their partners.
Jealousy is something that my mind has a hard time computing, because in my eyes it comes from within, it stems from insecurity about yourself and/or distrust in your partner. And if you do not trust your partner enough to stay true to you, or worse, if you CANNOT trust your partner because they have treated you like shit before, you shouldn’t be in that relationship in the first place. 
I would hate being in a relationship where a person wouldn’t want me to spend with time with other people because they feared I would cheat on them because 
A) that means you think that I cannot be trusted.
B) that means I could not hang out with anybody because I am pansexual
And I am pretty free spirit, so if I ever felt like I was held too tightly, my basic instinct would be to run the fuck away.
Oh and don’t give me that “it’s not you I don’t trust, it’s other guys”. That means that you think that it is not up to me whether I cheat or not. News flash, if it is not up to me, it is sexual assault and if you think that is cheating, you are a dickbag and need to never talk to me again!

I shall reblog whenever I see this….

the amount of perfection in that paragraph makes my heart happy.

I’m a Christian and I support this message.

i think i’m crying that’s so perfect

There’s also the fact that the reason Jesus died on the cross was so that Christians no longer had to follow the laws of the Old Testament.

By denying homosexuals the right to marry because of what it says in Leviticus, you are basically saying that Jesus’ sacrifice WAS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU.

PREACH.

Word, Hebrews chapter 8. If a Christian follows any of the Jewish law set out in Leviticus, then technically they don’t accept Jesus as the Messiah and aren’t really Christian.
