John Oliver issues Ladybucks for gender pay gap
The White House is pushing for an Equal Pay Act. They claim women earn 77 cents for every dollar made by their male counterparts. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is helping draw attention to the gender pay gap by issuing women Ladybucks, colorful and scented monopoly money worth 83 cents (slightly more accurate). The bills feature fictional female presidents like Geena Davis, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Laura Roslin from Battlestar Galactica, who only became president after almost all mankind was destroyed.

If Geek Girls Acted Like Geek Guys

I think it’s a social responsibility. I think it’s OUR responsibility to stand up and say what we want and what we don’t want. […] When they announced that Falcon was going to be Cap in the comic books, the internet went crazy. ‘Marvel and their liberal… stupid… I’m tired… Thor’s a woman and she’s stupid.’ But the first Cap was a black dude, like the Tuskegee Airmen. And, before this, the Falcon was Cap once before. So now for you to say ‘Oh they made him black because of Obama’? Dude, you have no idea what you’re talking about. And I feel like that kind of ridiculousness is what is holding us back as a group of people who are trying to create something great in the name of art.

Anthony Mackie (x), when asked about pushing for more diversity

I couldn’t quite hear everything he said in the internet troll voice. But this was the gist.

AH i can help! He said “Marvel and their liberal agenda, stupid liberals, I’m tired of them doing this, and now Thor’s a woman and she’s stupid.” or something akin to it. Sad the sound wasn’t better on these videos (hope the official one will be up soon!) (via @fivelettered)

Thanks! That makes more sense.

Someone should put together a history of left boob grab gifs for Anthony Mackie.

I think a rom-com with the two of us fighting over Black Widow [would make a good Winter Soldier/Falcon spin-off movie].

Mackie’s Evans impression forever. God bless the person who put this panel up on YouTube.

This moment. 

This is giving me feels. Especially with all the Ferguson funeral stuff going on right now. Spider-man can be anybody.
