The new Cosmos is basically The Magic School Bus + computer graphics.
Every episode Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s like, “Climb aboard my tiny spaceship, y’all! We’ve got ourselves an entire Universe to explorrrrrrre!”
I’m rewatching the complete series of Battlestar Galactica. Not bingeing, but deliberately making my way through a few episodes per week. I’m only on s01e6 if you want to watch along.
They’ll do anything to silence us!!!
It’s still legal in 29 states to fire anyone for being gay, but who cares? One straight white dude working in an industry dominated by other straight white dudes comes under criticism for his anti-equality views and people lose their shit.
It took a petition signed by over 65,000 people calling for Brendan Eich’s resignation and he still had a choice whether or not to step down. In 29 states, if you’re gay, all it takes is one asshole boss with a grudge against the gays and you can kiss your job goodbye.
So much for liberal “tolerance!”
An important part of creating a just society isn’t tolerating absolutely EVERYTHING, it’s knowing when to refuse to tolerate views that lead to injustice.
I can’t wait until our generation becomes teachers that actually know how to make a video full screen and get the god damn cursor out of the way
