feminists-rage-in-texas:

Well this is a huge relief. Cut it way too close, though. Thought we might have to gear up for open carry clinic defense next week or something for a second.

After she came up to me and said, “I’ve been with my partner for 20 years… We would never get married because he’s on social security income, and because my daughter is disabled I have secondary income from the state to support my daughter. If I got married, both my benefits and his benefits would be reduced because we would become a double income family.”

She was explaining that marriage doesn’t work for poor people, and that it doesn’t work for disabled people. Having really simple examples like hers are important.

What if the LGBTQ movement fought for prison abolition rather than same-sex marriage? (via disabilityhistory)

this is important. for a lot of low income folks on government benefits, marriage is against their financial self-interest. trying to put a dollar amount of the symbolic value of marriage is hard.

True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.

I would like to know how or why he thought seeking profit from this “depression” was going to make those threats stop. Like, did you consider a heartfelt apology instead?

"I rather resent it when people say Uhura didn’t do anything but say, ‘Hailing frequencies open.’ That’s not true. It demeans my status. Uhura represented womanhood and the breakthrough of cross-racial representation. She represented dignity and intelligence, and no one can take that away from her, or me."

The guys who think nudity immediately means arousal/sex are the same ones who think being a gynecologist would be a dream job.

I had a friend-well, friend is a strong word, he was the cousin of a good friend who was constantly embarassed by him and apologizing for him-like this believe it or not. Wanted to go to med school and become a OBGYN so he’d get to see women naked all the time. He was older, graduated before us and got accepted into a medical school. I asked my friend, his cousin, how he was doing before we graduated and apparently once he actually started studying how a vagina works when your not having sex, he was like “OH god, no, this is so gross, yeast infections and warts and periods and HAVE YOU EVER SEEN WHAT A CERVIX LOOKS LIKE, I DIDN’T THINK YOU COULD SEE IT THROUGH THERE! I can’t look at any woman the same way again!” and switched over to general practice. So really, sometimes learning how the human body actually works is a turn off even with nudity involved.

What’s really sad here, is that the only unrealistic thing about this, is that the Stormtrooper hit his mark.

its 20 fucking 14 can we stop pretending that online activism and general awareness campaigns “dont do anything” before i got on tumblr i was a racist sexist anti-feminist piece of garbage whos greatest understanding of any social issue was discrimination against white gay men and that trans people were “men trapped in womens bodies”

obviously something fucking right is going on so why dont you stop being pessimistic little shits.

ladies and gentlemen, the american education system

My school apparently ran out of toilet paper a few weeks ago and my Spanish teacher was telling the girls to keep a roll in their purses and the guys to keep a roll in our backpacks. North American Education system.

this is basically any public school in the world tbh
