I’m so angry and upset right now I think I’m gonna cry

Goyim conflate Israel with diasporic Jews - and then take it out on us, the diasporic Jews, who have no say or vote in what Israel does, who may not even want to be affiliated at all with Israel, who may even hate Israel for what it’s done, or who recognize the need for Israel but hate and actively oppose the state of it now. The list is endless. The point I’m making is that what is happening right now is being taken out on us, an oppressed ethnic and religious minority everywhere except for one small state, and often with violence

And when we talk about rising antisemitism, we get called k*ke and y*d and other slurs, and EVERY. SINGLE. DAMN. TIME. we’re told “but israel!!!! israel is shit so you people are shit!!!1!1 antisemitism doesn’t exist!!!1&!!!1!”

And what may be even worse than that is that it comes from all sides - right AND LEFT. The people who supposedly fight for people’s rights and fight against oppression either don’t care or ACTIVELY PATICIPATE IN THE SPREADING OF ANTISEMITISM.

So if YOU are a non-Jew, and think of yourself as someone who cares and fights for the rights of marginalized and oppressed people, EDUCATE YOURSELF and EDUCATE YOUR FELLOW NON-JEWS ABOUT THIS SHIT

RECOGNIZE that you are IGNORANT about Judaism - the religion, the culture, the people as a minority ethnic group in the diaspora, our various relations to and opinions of Israel, and *GASP* EVEN ZIONISM (which is probably where i see the most ignorance)

RECOGNIZE that you ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE IN ANTISEMITISM (even just by ignoring it), and if you care, you MUST make actions to turn that around

TL;DR - Antisemitism is rampant and increasingly so, even in social justice circles. If you are a gentile, recognize that you are actively participating in the oppression of a marginalized group of people, and educate yourself and others

Please everyone, especially if you are a gentile, SPREAD THIS SHIT LIKE WILDFIRE

See, this is a difficult question not because I think any of them wouldn’t but because I think they all definitely would.

Enjolras shows up in a temper because someone was abusing a baby goat and who does things like that and raging about the injustices of animal abuse while cuddling the baby.

Combeferre is goat-sitting and enthuses about the many and varied uses for goats and has his goat litter-trained and thus figures he may as well bring it out to get socialized.

Courfeyrac confiscated the kid because it was being held as evidence at the police station or something and it was bleating and really, Enjolras, what was he supposed to do, leave it there?

One of Feuilly’s neighbors had the goat but couldn’t take care of it anymore, so he took it in, and it’s still young enough to need frequent feeding, so he brings it to the meeting.

Jehan turns up with the goat following at his heels, announces he’s named it Eurydice because it followed him out of hell, and declines to explain further. When Combeferre points out it is a boy goat he only gets a withering look in response.

Joly and Bossuet turn up with a goat, Bossuet’s arm in a sling, and about six bags full of potential goat foods Joly wants to try. Both of them look very shifty. They all decide it is probably best not to ask.

Bahorel met this dude with a baller goat, and the dude was totally an asshole, so he punched him out and took the goat. The goat’s name is Rex. Like T. Rex, Enjolras, cool it, I’m not indoctrinating my goat into the monarchy.

Some model for one of Grantaire’s art classes came with a goat because they thought it would make for a good ~pastoral painting~ or something, and then left the goat there, so Grantaire shrugged and brought it with him. It’s named Bottle. Shut up, Courfeyrac, that’s a totally legit goat name.

Marius does not know why this goat is following him will someone please help him and stop giggling and taking pictures :(((((

Reblogging this in hopes that someone will illustrate it.

Marius always exceeds my expectations.

“Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.”

Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via alliterate)

OH WAIT LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT CECILIA PAYNE.

Cecilia Payne’s mother refused to spend money on her college education, so she won a scholarship to Cambridge.

Cecilia Payne completed her studies, but Cambridge wouldn’t give her a degree because she was a woman, so she said fuck that and moved to the United States to work at Harvard.

Cecilia Payne was the first person ever to earn a Ph.D. in astronomy from Radcliffe College, with what Otto Strauve called “the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.”

Not only did Cecilia Payne discover what the universe is made of, she also discovered what the sun is made of (Henry Norris Russell, a fellow astronomer, is usually given credit for discovering that the sun’s composition is different from the Earth’s, but he came to his conclusions four years later than Payne—after telling her not to publish).

Cecilia Payne is the reason we know basically anything about variable stars (stars whose brightness as seen from earth fluctuates). Literally every other study on variable stars is based on her work.

Cecilia Payne was the first woman to be promoted to full professor from within Harvard, and is often credited with breaking the glass ceiling for women in the Harvard science department and in astronomy, as well as inspiring entire generations of women to take up science.

Cecilia Payne is awesome and everyone should know her.
