Emily Kinney went from somewhat of an actor who wandered around in the background, who was not given a chance to really shine as far as her acting ability went. Enter Season 4 where Emily’s character underwent an incredible transformation in her character arc where Beth went from scared to…
"For the record, feminism by definition is: ‘The belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of the political, economic and social equality of the sexes.’
I started questioning gender-based assumptions when at eight I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays we would put on for our parents—but the boys were not.
When at 14 I started being sexualized by certain elements of the press.
When at 15 my girlfriends started dropping out of their sports teams because they didn’t want to appear “muscly.”
When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings.
I decided I was a feminist and this seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Apparently I am among the ranks of women whose expressions are seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, anti-men and, unattractive.
Why is the word such an uncomfortable one?”

Aiya Van Kooten everyone
When Aiya Van Kooten stood face-to-face with a burglar in her bedroom, her left eye twitched, then she went into “predator mode”.
“I screamed at him… jumped off my chair, leaped over my bed and sprinted after him down the stairs,” she said.
This is the best story of my life
“Although she was the only one home, Van Kooten said she had no regard for her safety - instead, she said she was just overwhelmed with “rage“….. ummmmm Hero!!!
Haha, badass Muslim woman. Love it!!!
This lady is so awesome. She lives with her grandma and was studying and had a towel on her head and no shoes but she chased them out of her garden, kicked one up the arse as he climbed a fence, they dropped a camera and laptop, she flagged down a passing driver to help her continue the pursuit, and it turned out he was ex-military, and they finally caught one of them in a park and pinned him as the police arrived. Now she’s going to visit the burglar in prison for the next few months to help with his rehabilitation.
So in summary:
This lady doesn’t just defend her home and loved ones, she will hunt you down, team up with other skilled individuals, get you put away, and then teach you the consequences of your actions until you’re a valuable member of society once more.
Seriously she’s a frigging superhero.

This is Sam Pepper. If you don’t know who he is, Sam is a successful YouTube prankster with over 2 million subscribers. He recently uploaded a video titled “Fake Hand Ass Pink Prank" where he pinched unsuspecting girls’ butts without their permission. None of this was done with the girls’ consent…meaning Sam Pepper sexually harassed and assaulted these women.
This is no longer a “simple, harmless prank” but rather a very serious matter and offence. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can watch, dislike, and report it HERE. You can also take the pledge to help stop sexual violence at itsonus.org. Please do not let Sam get away with this kind of behavior. He crossed the line and needs to be held responsible for his disgusting actions.
I would literally punch him and I wouldn’t stop
gonna start saying “whitemanning” instead of “b*tching” from now on because white men complain way more than girls tbh
Just because politicians have made and are making really fucked up decisions in my country don’t mean I don’t fucking love my culture

Borders Can’t Stop Mexican Culture
How one song performance shattered misconceptions of who is Mexican
In the video above, Pepe Aguilar and the famous Trojan Marching Band perform at an event on USC’s campus earlier this week the Mexican ranchera classic “Un Puño de Tierra,” song made famous by Pepe’s dad, Antonio Aguilar. (Check your pulse if you didn’t let out at least one grito!) It also happens to be a pretty good example of how Mexican LA is.
Could you imagine Pepe getting this type of reception for a ranchera at El Tecnológico de Monterrey? Maybe, but we couldn’t find anything of the like. The closest was the cumbia group Los Ángeles Azules performing 2 months ago at Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City, which was cool to see, but not exactly the same as having students and alumni singing to a traditional Mexican song.
This is a reflection of the fact that in many ways Mexicans in the United States are more Mexican than their family in Mexico. Why? The short answer is that, in general, people tend to appreciate their culture more when they’re away from it. But that’s only part of the answer. The main reason is that most Mexicans in the United States come from the real Mexico: pueblos and ranchos from states like Jalisco, Michoacán, Guanajuato, Zacatecas, Durango, Puebla, Oaxaca, and many more.
These Mexicans do not only bring with them a strong work ethic but also their culture, which includes their love for old rancheras like those Pepe’s dad used to sing, and as alluded to in the title of this post: borders can’t stop culture. This performance of a classic Mexican song and the roaring reception it received at USC is proof!
Es grandioso sentirse parte de, aunque no tengamos una definición de lo que es un mexicano.
