Being such a fanatic fan of #comic -books, I couldn’t be happier about the popularity that role-models for #diversity are getting lately in cinema: @wonderthemovie - as a symbol of women empowerment; @blackpanther - as a symbol of racial equality. Now, I think, it’s time for a big-screen movie with an #LGBT hero. If producers are looking for such characters - I would recommend #Iceman or #Northstar (or both). All of the mentioned superheroes have been in comic-books for decades, but it’s been only recently that they have premiered on the big screen as well (#WonderWoman - 75 (!) years after her debut in @dccomics, #BlackPanther - more than 50 (!) years after his debut in @marvel) - and they were both epic and record-breaking. That is why I believe the time has come to see a full-fledged LGBT hero as well - both Iceman & Northstar (who debuted in the ‘63 and ‘79 respectively) have had their coming out in the 21 century - they are both “mutants” (one of them is among the founding members of the X-men, the other one is a member of a Canadian superhero alliance that partners with the X-men) - and let’s face it: it comic-book culture “mutant” has always been a metaphor for excluded and bullied people who have been treated by the majority as “second class” but actually they proved to be even better than them because of the unique #superpowers each of them has. Having lived through a world of comic-books as a #kid , I feel blessed for the opportunity to live through an even more exciting world of comic-movies as an adult. It’s a #cinema#revolution like none before it - it changes #minds and #hearts , it breaks #stereotypes , it fights for #justice and - of course - kicks some #ass ❤️
Seeing change 👉🏼 Young Children Can Unlearn Racial Stereotyping
New research by Paul Quinn, a professor of psychological and brain sciences at the University of Delaware, and his collaborators across the globe, have found a simple exercise that can undo the unconscious racial biases that may begin to develop as early as infancy
Quinn learned that 3-month-olds begin showing a visual preference for the same race they see most often in their daily lives. By 9 months, infants not only distinguish racial categories, but also become less able to tell different individuals apart if they are members of a less-familiar race
In the experiment, the scientists morphed together photos of African and Asian faces to create ambiguous images that looked equally African and Asian. As a result, Quinn reports, “At 9 months, they didn’t respond to the differences between the African and Asian categories, but instead they had two less discriminatory broad categories; ‘own race’ and ‘other race’. We think it might be a precursor to an initial ‘in group/out group’ differentiation and suggest that perceptual and social processing of faces may overlap, even in infants.”
Мне всегда было интересно,как люди легко делают выводы, глядя на человека, и как быстро они меняются после какого-либо контакта с ним🤔Почему-то у многих складываются такие стереотипы,что в офисе и в библиотеке работают порядочные женщины и мужчины,а все танцовщицы-проститутки и вовсе падшие женщины,а мальчишки танцоры-пид..ы♀️😏☝️Когда-то я пыталась что-то объяснить людям,доказать,а сейчас,глядя на то,сколько кругом плохих и завистливых людей,которые разложились уже в своих стереотипах и грязи, в которой они варятся и даже не пытаются выбраться оттуда,но☝️зато😏☝️слишком много знают и учат всех правильно жить, лёжа на диване и деградируя😂
И самое смешное,что эти люди,реально считают себя самыми честными и правильными,а печальное что таких 80%😕Ребята,не судите людей по «картинке в инстаграме»😏☝️уже не для кого не секрет,что это лишь «пыль в глаза»,ну а если вас это стимулирует,каким-то образом,так цепляйтесь за то желание,которое у вас возникает при виде чего-то или кого-то,кто знает,может когда-нибудь оно приведёт вас к успеху и вашей мечте 😊😘
This popsicle was so cool haha
I love lemon AF🍋🍦
How to not be a plastic person
1) don’t follow any stereotypes, wtf why do boys need to be blue and girls need to be pink?
I mean if you like it it’s okay but what if you don’t?
What if I rather blue?
1) I’ll be the weird girl who break the rules 2)I’ll be the non female girl
3) I’ll be the rebel by going against the current
It doesn’t sounds sooo bad even if it is
If I’m a boy and I rather pink
1) I’ll be the gay one
2) I’ll be the weird sissy boy who wears makeup secretly
And it’s just a fucking color!!!!
Wtf why do we can’t choose what to eat, wear, say and think!?
We’re not plastic boys or girls
We can do whatever the fuck we wanna do
So I rather be a happy weirdo who enjoys the color blue than be a plastic girl who wears pink just to make others happy
You’re a human! So do, eat, wear, say, think everything you wanna do, eat, wear, say, think and don’t give a fuck🤙🏻👅 #plasticgirl#plasticboy#stereotypes#anawho#strongnotskinny#strongnotweak#strongerthanana#happynotskinny#prorecovery#neversaynever#strongnotsick#strongbyfood#foodisfuel#dontgiveafuck#bye
Why I do #scicomm :
1. #Science is for everyone. Its our moral duty as scientists to share knowledge utilizing any possible medium. .
2. To break #stereotypes ... people in science are normal human beings ... not robots... not emotionless! They have a life very similar to others... they enjoy sharing their adventures.. their likes and dislikes... just like anyone, anywhere!
3. Scientists have many many bad days in hope of one meaningful finding... they can feel very isolated or lonely ... spending 3/4 of the day in lab or at desk... #scicomm connects them to the rest of world.
4. I #scicomm to spread awareness and motivate young generation to take part in #STEM fields for a better #world .

I was leaving school yesterday and I heard my name being yelled so i turned around and this teaching assistant was calling me so I went back. So my science teacher had told this teacher that he saw marks on my arm so she came to ask me about it and made me show her my arms. There was nothing there so what my science teacher saw I don’t know.......
“I’m Tired” Project utilizes photography, the human body and written words as tools to highlight the lasting impact of everyday micro-aggressions, assumptions and stereotypes. Co-creators #PaulaAkpan and #HarrietEvans use various social media platforms to share photos of what participants are most tired of, which is displayed across their bare backs creating a positive space for people to share their personal stories.
