saying “the bechdel test sets the bar too low” is dumb because that’s literally the point of the bechdel test, it’s a bar set at ankle height that hollywood is still refusing to step over

Last year, in total, British police officers actually fired their weapons three times. The number of people fatally shot was zero. In 2012 the figure was just one. Even after adjusting for the smaller size of Britain’s population, British citizens are around 100 times less likely to be shot by a police officer than Americans. Between 2010 and 2014 the police force of one small American city, Albuquerque in New Mexico, shot and killed 23 civilians; seven times more than the number of Brits killed by all of England and Wales’s 43 forces during the same period.

The explanation for this gap is simple. In Britain, guns are rare. Only specialist firearms officers carry them; and criminals rarely have access to them. The last time a British police officer was killed by a firearm on duty was in 2012, in a brutal case in Manchester. The annual number of murders by shooting is typically less than 50. Police shootings are enormously controversial. The shooting of Mark Duggan, a known gangster, which in 2011 started riots across London, led to a fiercely debated inquest. Last month, a police officer was charged with murder over a shooting in 2005. The reputation of the Metropolitan Police’s armed officers is still barely recovering from the fatal shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes, an innocent Brazilian, in the wake of the 7/7 terrorist bombings in London.

In America, by contrast, it is hardly surprising that cops resort to their weapons more frequently. In 2013, 30 cops were shot and killed—just a fraction of the 9,000 or so murders using guns that happen each year. Add to that a hyper-militarised police culture and a deep history of racial strife and you have the reason why so many civilians are shot by police officers. Unless America can either reduce its colossal gun ownership rates or fix its deep social problems, shootings of civilians by police—justified or not—seem sure to continue.

The Doctor Who 50th Anniversary or How Steven Moffat Took a Steaming Dump on Everything That Came Before Him

The problem with Moffat is that he’s a really bad AU fanfic writer who’s been given the undeserving honor of having his greatest, dumbest fantasies become cannon. Like, someone at BBC should have at least given his prior fanfic a once over before giving him the job.

I gots tagged by ill-be-your-succubitch and I thought why in the hell not.

Rules: Always post the rules, answer all the questions that the person tagged you asks, create eleven different questions, tag eleven people to answer them

  1. What is your dream for the world? 
    …. .?>?>/???
    Things to be less shitty for the maximum number of people possible I suppose?? Also an open, broad world of art, music and creativity that doesn’t have to prove its financial worth to get popular recognition (tchyeh).
  2. If you could have superpowers (or just one) what would you be able to do? Teleportation to anywhere would be great…
  3. (follow up question) Would you be a superhero or a supervillain with those powers?  I’d probably be one of those morally grey heroes who people don’t know if they can trust but who always ”does the right thing” in the end…
  4. If you were in a band, what would the name of the band be (or what are some ideas for band names?)…. I’d probably steal a song title of a band I like like um… Drowning Lessons… yeah that works.
  5. How would you describe you style of clothing (or give an example of what you might wear on a normal day)? I think I have kind of a mauve… future… goth… punk… with lines… Idunno.
  6. What are your top 5 TV shows? Ever? Um, Buffy, Firefly, Black Mirror, Hannibal and I just watched In The Flesh and it has broken me so that too.
  7. What/who are your top 5 OTPs? I… don’t really do that much… But Keiran/Simon from In The Flesh, yeh they’re cute.
  8. If you could have one wish granted, what would it be (no you cannot wish for more wishes, don’t be greedy)? Financial stability for the rest of my life so that I can think about living it…
  9. Use one word to describe what you want for yourself in the future….  Comfort.
  10. If you HAD to use a pickup line to try pick up someone, what would it be?... I… it would be body language more than words. I’m bad at words. I unno, I’m sorry I can’t think of anything… (I’d just wanna talk to them and get to know em first I’m sorry.)
  11. How has your day been? :) Well I just got up and my eye’s all swollen for some reason…

My questions:

1. If humankind tries to colonise a new planet, would you want to be on the first expedition/ landing party?
2. And also would you want to move there even if the world wasn’t ending?
3. TARDIS question: where/when would you travel to? (and why?)
4. What would be your ideal festival lineup?
5. Technological advancement: yea/nay?
6. And also; artificial intelligence: yea/nay?
7. Is there anything you would do if you knew you could get away with it? (Yes/ No/ if you’re feeling brave: what?)
8. Favourite fictional world? (From any book/game/film/etc)
9. Name a song you know alll the lyrics to.
10. (Running out of ideas now, um)… Is there a God?
11. Have you ever seen Spinal Tap? (you should)
