Regardless of whether you watch Scandal or not, everyone needs to watch this and see Lisa Kudrow fucking nail her scene exploiting misogyny and sexism.

OH MY GOD THIS IS AMAZING

Kathryn Johnston (June 26, 1914 – November 21, 2006) was an elderly Atlanta, Georgia, woman who was shot by undercover police officers in her home on Neal Street in northwest Atlanta on November 21, 2006, where she had lived for 17 years. Three officers had entered her home in what was later described as a ‘botched’ drug raid.Officers cut off burglar bars and broke down her door using a no-knock warrant. Police said Johnston fired at them and they fired in response; she fired one shot out the door over the officers’ heads and they fired 39 shots, five or six of which hit her. None of the officers was injured by her gunfire, but Johnston was killed by the officers. Police injuries were later attributed to “friendly fire” from each other’s weapons.
One of the officers planted marijuana in Johnston’s house after the shooting. Later investigations found that the paperwork stating that drugs present at Johnston’s house, which had been the basis for the raid, had been falsified. The officers later admitted to having lied when they submitted cocaine as evidence claiming that they had bought it at Johnston’s house. Three officers were tried for manslaughter and other charges surrounding falsification and were sentenced to ten, six, and five years.

She would’ve been 100 years old this year. It’s a damn shame that they didn’t get at least twenty years plus. That would’ve been the lowest possibility for anyone else. Racism was definitely one of the motives.

Ten, Six, & FIVE FUCKING YEARS; ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?!?!?!!!!????

I had to apologize for “extreme” feminists today

iamayoungfeminist:

iamayoungfeminist:

You know the people that make statements about cutting men’s penises off and such. 

And it really fucking pissed me off and I’m mad I did it. 

Because I have been dealing with people defending men who say some heinous things my entire life. 

And I kinda wanna be like, you know, if you’re going to make me apologize for these extremist “feminists”, if you’re going to make sure that I’m not “one of those’. I want you to apologize for Tyler the Creator and Joe Francis and Dov Charney and every other male that has publicly condoned rape or domestic violence or any type of misogyny. I want to make sure you’re not “one of those men”. 

Because “those men” the ones that make “those statements” are actually in positions of power. Unlike the “feminists” you’re making me apologize for. The men who say horrible things about women actually have influence. 

And that just pisses me off. 

I wrote this in 2011 when I was 17 

Now I am one of those “extreme feminists” 

LFMAO

Point still stands though….

shit i’d watch this so damn hard

Seriously, 12 straight men acting as gay as humanly possible, I would die.

Can you imagine them playing chicken to try and trip up the “straight” guy?

Portraits of homeless LGBT youth may help them find “forever families”

A New York City gallery has turned its cameras toward LGBTQ youth in the hopes it will help them finally find loving homes.

Heart Gallery NYC, a traveling exhibition of professional pictures taken by award-winning photographers of children in foster care looking for “forever families,” has set up in shop in Times Square, spotlighting LGBTQ young adults. The exhibition, which is the first of its kind, coincides with National Pride Month and will culminate at New York’s Pridefest on June 29.

If feminists ever do achieve their goal of desexualising boobs and the female anatomy, I’m wondering how this is going to have an impact on certain women. For instance, I guess models and sex workers will be made redundant, no more getting free drinks at the bar, no more…

How do they even plan to desexualize boobs? Like how are you going to force males and lesbians to stop being aroused by them? Do they just think by walking around with thier boobs out in public that magically they are no longer sexualized and everyone who is aroused by them no longer is?

-Prometheus

Here’s the thing though: breasts AREN’T sexualized in all cultures and in all points through time. This isn’t some innate facet of human nature. It’s a cultural norm, and those CAN shift with time. There are MANY cultures where breasts are no more sexualized that kneecaps. 

Breasts are no more sexual than nipples that aren’t on breasts. They are just a part of anatomy. And yes, you can think they are attractive, just like you can find someone’s lips or nose or collarbone attractive, but they aren’t somehow inherently sexual. They aren’t sex organs. 

So yes, emphasizing these parts of our bodies as normal non-sexual features is important. This mainly plays out in laws and mores surrounding public breastfeeding and double standards in public indecency laws. 

Not to mention the countless other sexualized body parts women have had to contend with over the centuries.

In the Victorian period it was considered rude to mention legs - even in regards to a table - because they were considered vulgar due the their ‘sexual’ nature. We did get over that (to some extent) and we’re much better for it, if you ask me.

cbcyclist said: How about stand with Israel instead

standwithpalestine:

As twenty little Palestinian children pulled up in their school bus at the Indira Gandhi kindergarten [in Gaza], their 20 year-old teacher, Najawa Khalif, waved to them – and an Israel shell hit her and she was blasted to pieces in front of them. He arrived a day later, to find the shaking children drawing pictures of the chunks of her corpse. (Full article)
