Map of the week: 57% of languages do not have gendered pronouns.
By Lisa Wade, PhD
The map above is an interactive available at the World Atlas of Language Structures. It represents an extensive, but not quite comprehensive collection of world languages. Each dot represents one. White dots are languages that do not include gendered pronouns. No “he” or “she.” Just a gender neutral word that means person.
The colored dots refer to languages with gendered pronouns, but there are more than one kind, as indicated by the Values key. The number on the right, further, indicates how many languages fit into each group. Notice that the majority of languages represented here (57%) DO NOT have gendered pronouns.
The map at the site is interactive. Go there to click on those dots and explore.
#so i have this image unfolding in my head#of her seductively approaching the bed#naked as the day she was born#stalking castle as though he was her prey#crawling over him and undressing him slowly#flinging each piece of clothing to the side#straddling him and taking control#like she knows he wants her to#riding him into oblivion#until they can forget his absence#forget the pain of the last few months#just revel in their bodies naked and pressed together#knowing they’ll never be parted again#yeahhhhhh i’m ruined for life by these two (x)

I suggest all females watch this.
*i suggest all humans watch this.
THIS SHOULD BE REQUIRED WATCHING FOR ALL HUMANS
I’m a 17 year old white guy living in middle class America. I’ve never exactly been a supporter of feminism because that kind of thing has never really affected me personally. I don’t notice it and I don’t care about it. But in nine minutes this video has made what is truly a serious problem extremely apparent. Those “why I need feminism” posts or those slut-shaming or rape culture campaigns never convince me of anything. But this video actually did I think.
tl;dr This video kicks ass, just watch it.
Stop what you’re doing and watch this
I watched this with my mom. This is really great. I love this.
i used to be so picky about what i post and reblog but it’s just slowly deteriorated into a state of “why not”

Any buzz or success this film may have is important because of how unknown this extraordinary man is in comparison to his achievements. He was a war hero, a gay icon, the father of the computer age. There should be statues of him in important parts of London. Yet he, and many thousands of gay men like him, were prosecuted and persecuted in England’s embarrassing and shaming recent history. — Benedict Cumberbatch on The Imitation Game and Alan Turing (x x)

Listen everyone!!! Look what I’ve found:
As I suspected some anti-feminism and racist asshole took this picture about feminism and turned it into some racist bullshit.
That woman on these pictures only contributed to the “Why I need feminism” signs and now we have this picture of her with a racist sign.
spread this correction like wildfire.
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME
