Dear STFU-Moffat and associates,
From now on, I insist you describe Steven Moffat as “Emmy-award winning writer Steven Moffat.” Just to make sure you’re being…
Before I list off my tips, I just want to include a very important piece of info! Something I learned when styling wigs is that once you accomplish your first super challenging wig…you feel like you can almost do any wig you put your heart into. Skills you get in one wig…
One group of people is decidedly happy about the militarized response in Ferguson: those who work in the weapons industry. The array of police forces–the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the St. Louis county and city police and local Ferguson officers–that descended on the largely black Missouri city have used the products these corporations are selling in abundance. Tear gas, rubber bullets, smoke bombs, stun grenades, armored personnel carriers, sound cannons and high-caliber rifles have all been deployed to quell the unrest, though they have contributed to anger over police tactics.
But what if Arcadia is actually just like Mean Girls and that’s why everyone wants to escape.
I NEED to go to THIS!
9-13 at Baruch… Holy shit, must go!!
Q:Why does it even matter to non-cis people if cis people do oppress them?? I believe that we should just accept each other.. Because no matter what your gender is, You're still human! And non-cis people, If someone tries to bring you down.. Ignore them! I know it's hard.. But you can't let someone insult you for who you are. And just because ONE PERSON doesn't approve of your decision and lifestyle doesn't mean you should hate everyone that's the same as that one person.
It’s hard to ignore the person kicking you out of your home. It’s hard to ignore the person firing you because of who you are. It’s kind of hard to ignore someone’s fists.
The oppression from being trans doesn’t come in an easy to swallow, optional tablet you take when you feel like whining on Tumblr. It’s something that affects your life and can kill you.
The Trans Panic Defense is a thing. You can argue, in a court of law, that when you discovered someone you’ve had sex with was trans you were in capable of moderating your own actions and killed the other person. And get away with it.
Islan Nettles was killed in front of a police station. There were plenty of witnesses to her death. Her murderer walks free.
Cece McDonald, and a group of trans women, were attacked by a group of bigots with nazi symbols on them and because she defended herself she went to jail. To a jail for men.
Caleb Hannan still works for Grantland despite the suicide of the trans woman he outed. Killing trans women isn’t bad press.
Avery Edison tried to enter Canada without a single piece of paper and instead of being sent back home or being given a hotel room she was put in JAIL. Despite not breaking any laws, just because she was transgender and they refused to see her as either a woman or a man.
I’ve been raped and told by campus police that it was my fault for dressing like a girl. I’ve been threatened with arrest for using the bathroom. I have had to deal with panic attacks and severe depression as a result of this and that isn’t something you can just turn off.
No, our oppression really is not something we can ignore.
talk to kids like they’re people and take full interest in what they’re saying because they’re forming their personalities and it’s really vital that they know that their opinions are important and what they have to say deserves validation and respect. so when your three year old niece tells you that dragons don’t like cupcakes because the color blue is a spoon you better nod your head and ask her to explain more about that.
I started working at a nearby zoo, asking if folks want to be photographed and keep seeing families where one parent answers and two seconds later asks their family if they agree, if at all, speaking for everyone. Or one.spouse will say yes or no but the other one feels differently and they quickly decide together. The families where the parents ask their kid how they feel about it and whether they want to be in a photo are teaching them they can say yes or no and it’ll be okay and are also showing they care about their kids’ agency. It’s a big difference in perspective.
racism ain’t nothing new in St. Louis. Black people there were used as guinea pigs for radiation experiments during the Cold War. The U.S. has waged a war of genocide against Black people. I wonder where Israel learned its tricks from. #Ferguson
In the early days of the Cold War, the Army arrived in St. Louis and began spraying zinc cadmium sulfide on children and families, who lived in and around the Pruitt Igoe housing projects located north of downtown St. Louis.
"They said we were living in the project, but we were the project,” said former Pruitt Igoe resident Doris Spates.
Through tears, Johnson said, “They isolated me and I stayed there about a month to recuperate. I lost my fingernails, my toe nails, the lesions on my body. They fed me intravenously. I couldn’t see well. They kept me in the dark.”
The military now admits to some horrific Cold War human experiments around the country. A handful of hospital patients were secretly injected with plutonium. Babies and pregnant women unknowingly received radioactive iodine.
And, from 1946 through 1953 73 mentally disabled children in Massachusetts were fed oatmeal containing radioactive calcium.
the old gofundme for Darren Wilson has a pop up that says “donations are complete” but the photo for the account has been replaced with a black and white photo that states “We Are Not Done!” and gives the address to a new gofundme for Darren Wilson.
