Hello!! My name is Kevin, and I'm a fan of way too many things. I'm

My Posts are 99% reblogs, from anime, games, anything I like basically. My favorite things in the world are animated films and shows, games, my boyfriend<3<3<3, sweets, and plushies.

If I fuck up or say something wrong or do anything to make you upset or mad, I beg you to let me know because I'm deathly afraid of hurting people and I hate making people's days worse. So if I make a mistake, call me out and I'll do my best to never do it again!

I love talking to cool people, which most of you are ;3 so never hesitate to shoot me a message to chat, or ask for Skype (which I prefer since it's more instant and organized)

I'm super sorry for making this long. If you're still reading I hope you have a wonderful day because you're a wonderful person!<3<3

Princeton Concludes What Kind of Government America Really Has, and It’s Not a Democracy | PolicyMic 
The news: A new scientific study from Princeton researchers Martin Gilens and Benjamin I. Page has finally put some science behind the recently popular argument that the United States isn’t a democracy any more. And they’ve found that in fact, America is basically an oligarchy.
An oligarchy is a system where power is effectively wielded by a small number of individuals defined by their status called oligarchs. Members of the oligarchy are the rich, the well connected and the politically powerful, as well as particularly well placed individuals in institutions like banking and finance or the military.
For their study, Gilens and Page compiled data from roughly 1,800 different policy initiatives in the years between 1981 and 2002. They then compared those policy changes with the expressed opinion of the United State public. Comparing the preferences of the average American at the 50th percentile of income to what those Americans at the 90th percentile preferred, as well as the opinions of major lobbying or business groups, the researchers found out that the government followed the directives set forth by the latter two much more often.
It’s beyond alarming. As Gilens and Page write, “the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy.” In other words, their statistics say your opinion literally does not matter.
That might explain why mandatory background checks on gun sales supported by 83% to 91% of Americans aren’t in place, or why Congress has taken no action on greenhouse gas emissions even when such legislation is supported by the vast majority of citizens.
This problem has been steadily escalating for four decades. While there are some limitations to their data set, economists Thomas Piketty and Emmanuel Saez constructed income statistics based on IRS data that go back to 1913. They found that the gap between the ultra-wealthy and the rest of us is much bigger than you would think…

She pointed out the sexism in video games, so men threatened her until she fled her home

On Monday, Anita Sarkeesian posted a segment titled “Women as Background Decoration.” It examined how gratuitous sexual abuse and violence permeates contemporary video games. By the next day, she had received so many violent threats that she had to flee her home. And these weren’t idle Internet threats — some contained accurate identifying information about Sarkeesian’s home and family, enough for law enforcement to get involved.

But she’s not wrong | Follow @micdotcom

Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People

A cell phone video shows a January incident in St. Paul, Minnesota. Police officers rough up a black man who was apparently just sitting in a skyway before being approached. He had been waiting to pick up his kids.

John Iadarola: “That’s hard to watch.” 

Michael Shure: “It’s important to watch, though, because for any type of change to happen, you have to watch all of this. You have to see the dogs in 1963 in Kelly Ingram Park in Birmingham and be appalled by it. You have to see John Lewis getting struck over the head on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama and be appalled by it to see that there needs to be change someplace. You have to watch these videos and see that it is a reality.”
