Repeat after me, folks: romantic plotlines don’t ruin female characters.

A female character isn’t weak because she has normal human emotions. She isn’t anti-feminist because she has vulnerabilities. There’s a difference between a female character existing entirely to be in love with the male character and a female character who happens to have a romantic subplot as part of her story.

It isn’t feminist to insist that female characters have to be “badass” unfeeling robots, detached from absolutely anything considered “feminine,” including, apparently, emotions. Sure, we don’t want female characters to be damsels in distress, but swinging in the other direction, to cardboard-cutout-badass-making-quips, isn’t much better. Good female characters appear human. And sorry, romance-haters, but love is a part of that.

What Really Happened in the Congo: Belgium’s ‘Heart of Darkness’

Leopold famously said when he was forced to hand over the Congo Free State to the Belgian nation: “I will give them my Congo but they have no right to know what I have done there,” and proceeded to burn archives.

Did y’all know about this?

Many have accused Jon Stewart of being pro-Hamas for expressing sympathy for the residents of Gaza, where more than 500 people have been killed — including at least 100 children — in recent fighting with Israel.

Watch the full hilarious from “The Daily Show” segment here. 

You would think that saying “hey it’s wrong that children and men, women, of all ages are being killed when they did nothing wrong” would be an ok thing to say. But there’s a lobby that wants to make it impossible to have compassion for both sides. It blows my mind that I’m supposed to just sit back and say “oh Israel has right to do whatever it wants” , I don’t do that for the political leaders in my own country, but I’m supposed to blindly support Israel? Nope, sorry, not happening. There’s an old saying, “two wrongs don’t make a right”. Israel bombing innocent people to get back at the attacks they face It just does’t, all you’re left with a circle of unending violence. A generation that will hate you and actually want to see you destroyed. I can feel compassion for Israelis  being murdered AND Palestinians who experience the same. I’m human that way.
