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.
If you like porn you are not a feminist.
I don’t care how “alternative” or “female-friendly” you think the porn you watch is.
Paying women to get naked and/or fuck in front of a camera will never, ever be feminist and calling it feminist when that’s the only thing women are valued for doing in a patriarchy is fucking idiotic.
Fuck this, I will watch porn and enjoy it . The porn industry is fucked up but that doesn’t mean you can’t watch porn and be a feminist. There is home made porn too Jesus Christ . Porn stars know what they are getting into. It is a choice to make porn. Liking porn is fucking natural. Who made this strict code of what makes you a feminist, stop trying to decide who is and isn’t.
"i realize that women are being raped, beaten, abused and coerced but I dont care im still gonna masturbate to that "
nah you are literally not a feminist, and there s nothing natural about porn. you can’t have anti-feminist politics & beliefs & be a feminist sorry.To some, orgasms take precedence over women’s human rights and dignity.

The fact the Einstein was a raging misogynist kind of makes sense, given that it is widely speculated his first wife made significant contributions to the Theory of Relativity, but was completely unacknowledged (especially after he left her for his cousin).
At this point I refuse to believe there’s a renowned man who achieved any of is accomplishments without the help of (or outright theft of) the work of a woman they pushed aside and obfuscated.
He sent her to Novi Sad, her birth place, to either abort or give birth to that first baby in secret, because he was scared “it’ll ruin his reputation”, that’s what happened. There was an excellent documentary on that, I forgot the title…
More people should know about her, she was so brilliant and got nothing in return. She’s so important to me. #SerbianPride
