Acapella because I was lazy. Based off of this brilliant post. Enjoy!
You guys. The post has been resurrected. It has risen from the depths of Christmas 2012 for a second go-around in 2013! The power of Disney Princess Kuzco compels it!

Yes. That is a thing that I am. Even though my blog has been dead.

The Malaysian AXE-tronaut has been chosen! Congratulations to AXE Apollo Space Academy Cadet Rose! She will now represent the nation at the AXE Apollo International Space Camp in Orlando, Florida, and vie to be one of the select few to go to SPACE, yes actual Space.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU GUYS
I DECIDED TO GET ON FACEBOOK FOR HALF A SECOND BEFORE GOING TO SLEEP AND GUESS WHAT WAS JUST POSTED
BEHOLD ROSHINI MUNIAM, WHO IS SOON TO BE THE FIRST MALAYSIAN WOMAN TO GO TO SPACE
I’M FREAKING OUT. We all know that Rose won the popular vote, but that only counted as 30% of the vote overall; the judges also had to decide. SHE STILL WON. THEY CHOSE HER.
THIS IS AMAZING. Thank you to everyone who helped! This is a victory for not only Rose, but for everyone involved :’)
(For those who are confused, CLICK HERE AND SEE HOW IT ALL GOT STARTED, AND HOW/WHY TUMBLR BANDED TOGETHER TO HELP ROSE WIN THIS CONTEST)
I’m sure most of you have seen the original post about this. In short,
- Rose entered and endured training/testing to become a finalist in this contest. If she wins, she’ll be flown from Malaysia to Florida to go to space camp.
- Sexist jerks said awful things about her in the comments and told people to vote against her.
- Tumblr is fighting back.
The problem? Rose is in danger of losing. The competition doesn’t end for another 3 days, and one of the guys is catching up. PLEASE CONTINUE TO PASS AROUND INFO ABOUT THIS, AND VOTE EVERY HOUR, as much as you can! She needs to stay in the lead. Signal boost, y’all.
"I hope to reduce the gender-gap and to set a trend amongst our women, youth and the rest of the world, to put their dreams into action, and make it a reality." -Rose
This used to be a 2 page post but it was long and boring and I almost skipped it so here’s some cliffs
- girl enters and becomes finalist in contest to fly from malaysia to florida and go to space camp
- people on the internet are sexist (as usual) and say awful things about her in comments and vote against her
- tumblr fights back by clicking here and voting for her
she’s winning right now but this other dude’s coming up on the rear so keep voting!!
YOU CAN VOTE EVERY HOUR SO SAVE KEEP THE TAB OPEN OR THE LINK HANDY!
SHE’S ONLY IN THE LEAD BY 2,000 VOTES NOW, GUYS. One of the guys is catching up. KEEP VOTING. 3 days to go!!!!
As of this fall, once everything starts airing, here’s what I’ll be watching~
Watching for sure: SHIELD, Legend of Korra (I missed the premiere tonight because I wasn’t home ;___;), Once Upon a Time… and The Vampire Diaries. Sighs deeply. (I’m basically 80% done with everything TVD, but some masochistic part of me insists on still watching it, partially because there’s like TWO characters I still care about and partially so I can make sarcastic remarks about it over Twitter.)
Going to try: Sleepy Hollow. It looks interesting.
Need to catch up on: Graceland. I’m very very behind and the season just finished, so hopefully I can catch up on that at some point xD
I think that’s it! Unless Star Trek TOS counts… though I only made it through season 1 before school started and probably won’t be able to watch more until Christmas break.
BBC Sherlock gets a mention, too. *world’s smallest violin plays as we wait for season 3*
It’ll be fun to play the “let’s see how long I stay on track with all these shows” game.
A competition on Facebook by a male grooming brand to send a Malaysian to a space camp in Florida, USA to train to be an astronaut turned ugly when the only female finalist was “trolled”, drawing sexist comments from netizens.
Post-graduate student Roshini Muniam, who is one of the top five finalists of Axe deodorant’s Apollo Space Race competition, was discriminated against online due to her gender.
A comment posted by Syed Wazien on Roshini’s profile, featured in Axe’s Facebook page, expressed surprise over a woman’s desire to go to space.
“What – a woman?! No way, hose!!!” he said.
Geeky Fredward wrote that Roshini should not compete and must make way for her male counterparts to win the competition.
“Banyak lagi competition untuk female only kat luar tu lady.. (there are many other competitions for females out there, lady) don’t ruin what’s intended or most considered to be men only chance?”
Another commentator, Dimitriy Mirovsky, was more insulting, saying that women should be prohibited from the competition as they menstruate.
“pompuan REJEK…… lelaki sahaje….. kang tampon ang pecah kat langit tu abis rosak space craft tu….. kah kah kah……” (Women should be rejected… it is only for males… if your tampon burst while you are in space, the entire spacecraft will be spoilt… kah kah
This is reminiscent of an incident in the Malaysian parliament in 2007 when controversial Barisan Nasional MP Datuk Bung Mokhtar Radin, in a heated exchange in the Dewan Rakyat with opposition MPs over a leaky roof in Parliament House, said: “Mana ada bocor? Batu Gajah pun bocor tiap-tiap bulan juga. (Where is the leak? The Batu Gajah MP also leaks every month.)”.
Batu Gajah MP Fong Po Kuan and other women MPs were outraged by his comments and he was eventually forced to apologise.
Plucky Roshini, 27, has hit back at the trolls.
“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me. I am all out to win this competition because I want to inspire ordinary people to have extraordinary dreams & goals,” she posted on the page.
The contestants underwent a series of challenges which tested their mental strength and endurance. The pictures of the top five were posted online. Visitors to the page then could vote for their choice.
Some netizens have also come out in her defence, with Rajakumari Rajagopal pointing out that the competition was open to all Malaysians and that she qualified on merit.
“She was the only Malaysian woman who had made her way to the semi-finals and now to the finals. She needs your help and everyone’s help to make her dream come true. Why can’t she have a dream? Why can’t she be given an equal right to participate? Why can’t she be the final person to represent Malaysia. Malaysia Boleh! 1 Malaysia! Hidup Malaysia!”
Rafizal Rahman said Roshini should not be praised and not criticised, pointing out there was already a lot of female astronauts in the world.
The competition closes next Tuesday and the winner will be announced on September 24.
The winner will represent Malaysia in Florida and compete against other nations’ candidates for an opportunity to go to space.
Only 22 people will be selected for the Florida experience.
She’s losing by 20k votes. Let’s fix this.

You can vote every hour, too!

#do you think jim has ever had to angrily brush away tears because those kids won’t stop teasing him about his dad and he thought about it all day and every time he did he dug his nails into his palms and when he got home with his head down and his eyes red and his cheeks grimy he asked his mother why they did it #why they made fun of him #and she answered /that’s life/ #and she turned back away from him #and from that day on when jim kirk was 9 he wouldn’t cry anymore #not even once #because crying is weak and crying is useless and crying won’t get him anywhere #and in the chamber when spock is looking at him with those dark eyes and he’s crying #spock is crying #he has a tear on his cheek #/crying/ #but it doesn’t make him weak #no #spock could never be weak to jim #spock is one of the bravest men jim has ever met #and so jim lets go for the first time in years #and all he can think of is: /it should have happened sooner/ #kirk #star trek #:( (via spirkable)
