I'm Matt, and this Tumblr will consist of things that interest me. Mostly science and fiction. Cinema, space exploration, literature, physics, TV, and the like. General nerdiness / geekiness, really. Ask me stuff!

This is like the cutest thing ever. It’s from the gif-set I reblogged.

Taking its first steps, and after successfully doing so, the chick goes “Yay!”

It’s so freaking cute.

Hate crime stats in the US…
Source: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2014/04/15/when-it-comes-to-hate-crimes-atheist-victims-are-rare/

this shit is real, it’s happening and we need to talk about it

So I went back to the source data for the OP and made a graph that’s adjusted for the percentage of the U.S. population in each religious group.
I couldn’t find the property crimes/crimes against persons break down used above, just a single combined number. Nevertheless, the results highlight things a bit. 

It should be noted that anti-person crimes happen less often but also have a potential to be far worse, and using visual estimates of the first graph (and the fact that there are twice as many Jews as Muslims), Muslims and Jews have fairly comparable chances of being victims of anti-person crimes.
The two meta-categories (things/people associated with multiple religions, things/people associate with a religion other to the perpetrator) don’t really apply to this graph, so I couldn’t include them.
