disabledgirlism:

it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 (2011), Göran Hugo Olsson

You heard it right folks, the FBI considered free breakfasts for poor children to be the most dangerous internal threat to the country. Literally the kind of thing Jesus would do was the most dangerous threat to the country.

Basically. White folks got some nerve talmbout “you guys can’t separate yourselves it only helps the problem”. Like they wasn’t the ones who invented the segregation tip.

"Feminism is not about who opens the jar.

It is not about who pays for the date. It is not about who moves the couch. It is not about who kills the bugs. It is not about who cooks the dinner. It’s not even about who stays home with the kids, as long as the decision was made together, after thinking carefully about your situation and coming to an agreement that makes sense for your particular marriage and family.

It is about making sure that nobody ever has to do anything by “default” because of their gender. The stronger person should move the couch. The person who enjoys cooking more, has more time for it, and/or is better at it should do the cooking. Sometimes the stronger person is male, sometimes not. Sometimes the person who is best suited for cooking is female, sometimes not. You should do what works.

But it is also about letting people know that it is okay to change. If you’re a woman who wants to become stronger, that’s great. If you’re a man who wants to learn how to cook, that’s also great. You might start out with a relationship where the guy opens all the jars and the girl cooks all the meals, but you might find that you want to try something else. So try it."

Everyone should make a living wage. Everyone. Every last person should make enough money to properly feed, clothe, house and medicate themselves no matter what their job position is. And anyone who believes otherwise is an unbaked roll.

I REPEAT: THIS IS NOT THE ONION

Reporters confirm that police & advisors concealed the identity of Darren Wilson until he could delete all social media & move out of state.

Wow though. Darren Wilson, Ferguson’s PD and the rest of his and their supporters are an extra special breed of scumbag. What incriminating shit did he have online that needed to be swept under the rug so quickly?

I guarantee you there was some racist shit on his facebook

Oh, 100%.

A police officer in Georgia admits to kicking an African-American woman in the stomach while she was 9 months pregnant. No charges were filed against the officer.

Raven Dozier was 9 months pregnant when Dekalb County police officer Jared Wheeler kicked her in the stomach with his boots. She was forced to get a c-section. Thankfully, the baby survived. In an “internal investigation” Dekalb County police found that officer Wheeler did nothing wrong and followed police procedure.

And he’s completely unapologetic about it as well and no justice was served. People need to realize that police brutality is literally a daily reality for black people and that it affects black women as well.

Anonymous said: Let's be honest. If Darren Wilson had actually be injured, especially seriously injured, by Mike Brown, the police would have immediately flooded the media with photos and video of his injuries, statements from his doctors, etc. They wouldn't have sent him into hiding, apparently out of state. If he does have any injury, he's been out of the media for two weeks. Who knows what happened to him in that time. Lots of time to fake an injury to gain sympathy.

The most infuriating part is he doesn’t even need to… white supremacist trash are happily giving him all kinds of support and money for his crime.

What a lot of people who did the ice bucket challenge or want to do it don’t realize is that by donating and/or promoting the ALS foundation is that they are also inadvertantly promoting abortion. And for you pro-choices, know this: only 7% of donations go to ALS research.

Soooo A) I don’t think you know what type of stem cells they are using. The only type of embryo that anyone can use for stem cell research is a very young embryo; blastocysts. And the only way for those stem cells to be obtained is from IVF embryos that were not used and donated.

B) I don’t think you understand that someone using what would normally be disposed as medical waste for something that can help real people is not “promoting abortion” no one is getting an abortion or more accurately going through IVF to specifically donate hopeful stem cells to the foundation. Like that is not a thing, no matter how bad you want it to be true

And C) if you honestly are more worked up over stem cells than the fact that people are suffering terribly (while being completely aware) and dying then you are a shit person. How are you more concerned over an embryo that was going to be medical waste anyways so it might as well go to people who need it, than the people who are actually suffering?

Just so you know,  the use of stem cell research has shown the slowing of ALS to a huge degree,. soooo.. -cylina

Seriously. 

Why does this post come off as “I don’t support the ALS challenge because “”“abortion”“”!” and “but pro-choicers you shouldn’t support the ALS challenge because it’s an insignificant amount!” simultaneously?
