STAND WITH SURVIVORS AT COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY
Will those stellar free-speech advocates on the right stand up for Dr. Misee Harris, or will they remain silent?
Dr. Misee Harris, who also was the Black Bachelorette, just found herself in an impossible situation after posting support for Ferguson and Mike Brown’s family on her private Facebook page. Dr. Harris was given a choice to resign or shut up. Here’s the story:
tumblr pet peeve: when people post gifs of things and it looks super cool AND NO ONE SAID WHAT THE FUCK IT WAS JUST “OH I LOVE THIS VAGUE NOT SAYING WHAT THIS IS BULLSHIT OH MY GOSH I SUCK I’M HORRIBLE FUCK MY LIFE I’M SHIT FLUSH ME AWAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY”
christmas eve what about christmas adam
happy christmas adam to all men’s rights activists
Please stop pestering us with things like this. This has nothing to do with men fighting for their rights. Eve is short for ‘evening’. Please don’t turn activism into a joke. Thanks.
Someone isn’t having a good christmas adam
Christmas Adam: December 23rd. Comes before Christmas Eve and is generally unsatisfying.
I respect bees more than I respect white men in positions of power
bees make an important contribution to the survival of the human race which makes them the exact opposite of white men in positions of power
Hell yeah, I’m designing for AAW this year.
Step 1: Save that date.
Step 2: Pretend this image is a hot potato and share it all over the place.

On Monday September 15, Doctor Phil will be interviewing Kelli Stapleton, who attempted to murder her Autistic daughter.
When the media reports on cases of violence and abuse against Disabled individuals, we MUST hold them accountable to telling these stories with respect to the actual victims of these crimes. Our lives matter!
When a Disabled person is the victim of a violent crime, we must not allow the media to talk about “lack of services”, or the “burden” of what it is like to care for us. This is the rhetoric of fear, of hate, and victim blaming. That is unacceptable.
We will watch carefully and take our concerns to Twitter.

[TW: sexual abuse, ableism]
I’m sure just about everyone here is aware of the statistic that on average, 1 in 5 women in the US are sexually assaulted in their lifetimes.
For people with developmental disabilities, that number is over 90%. Over 90% of our most vulnerable population are sexually abused, very often by care providers or family members.
Where the fuck is our outrage? How is ableism not viewed as a legitimate oppression yet?
y’all feel free to just keep ignoring this though

When a white teenager named Steve Lohner was stopped by the police last month and refused to show his ID after carrying a loaded shotgun on the streets of Aurora, Colorado (the same city where a mass murderer killed 12 people and injured 70 others in a packed movie theater in July 2012), the teen walked away with nothing but a citation.
But when a 22-year-old black kid named John Crawford picked up a mere BB gun in a Walmart store in Dayton, Ohio last week, customers called the police, who then shot and killed him.
Here lies a racial disparity that’s difficult for honest people to ignore. How can black people openly carry a real gun when we can’t even pick up a BB gun in a store without arousing suspicion? The answer in America is that the Second Amendment doesn’t really apply to black people."

True, anyone who’s been paying attention knows this. The only time you can get gun control passed in this country is when politicians start seeing POC walking around freely with guns.
Astoundingly awful story of “every day” sexism and racism from @iSmashFizzle.
