So I hadn’t yet come out to my mum and today I got home to see that someone had changed the cover on my bed to this

And then I saw that they left a note on the bed, so I went over to take a look at it and

My mum is the best 

Whenever I see this I think well what if you weren’t gay and you came home one day to this

Good point. We like to encourage acceptance, but what if?

Is this what you want your kids to see when they go to school? Fox News thinks so, calling it a “great warning … meant to protect the kids.”

Nothing says “protecting our students” like an infinite promise of deadly force for whatever they project as a threat.
Using this logic, the students will all have guns. More guns around children is not a good idea.

The possibility that any one of the students themselves may be considered a threat (let’s say the teacher’s 5 foot nothing, has joints that go snap crackle pop, and some 6’4” teenage boy is acting like a jackass)  doesn’t come up.  Nor does the idea that a stressed and underpaid teacher, who these same people want to deny union security and pensions, might snap. But it should. It really fucking should.

Indeed.

Bubbling Anger, a plea for sanity.

Everyone is angry.

I’m sure you’ve noticed.

Angrier than usual

these days.

We’re all talking.

Loudly.

No one

is listening.

Eyes

glaze over.

The volume increases.

The cacophony fades

like static

into the background

as we scream

and shout

desperately

seeking

to be heard.

But still

no one

is listening.

It’s almost like

we’re living

in some alternate

reality

created by Springer

and populated

almost…

Javon Johnson - “cuz he’s black” (NPS 2013)

"It’s not about whether or not the shooter is racist. It’s about how poor black boys are treated as problems well before we are treated as people."

I’ve seen the GIF set of this video floating around and thought maybe folks should see the entire video.

  • As a side note, white privilege allows me to turn off my TV or log off of social media whenever this stuff gets too real for me to handle, but the people of Ferguson can’t change the channel. The people in North Philly can’t just turn it off. These are real people’s lives, people that matter. Remember that the next time you get the urge to log off Tumblr because the “unpleasantness” of the world is getting a little “too real”. - Frank D (aka adignorantium)

Special thanks to talldarklefty for the link to this video.

Everyday, young people are doing positive things. We need to make sure that they’re getting the proper recognition, right here in this great city!

Georgia sex offenders, murderers get gun rights back

(Atlanta Journal-Constitution) William Alvin Bishop paid for his crime – aggravated child molestation – with nine years in prison. But when he got out, he still wasn’t free.

Because he is on Georgia’s sex offender registry, Bishop must notify his local sheriff of any change of address, which then is posted online with his photograph. He cannot live or work within 1,000 feet of a school, a church, a day-care center – any place where, in the expansive language of the state’s sex offender law, “minors congregate.”

He may, however, own a gun.

He may, however, own a gun. 

"…despite the serious nature of his crime and his documented threat of additional violence. He is among a growing number of violent offenders who have received pardons that restore gun rights in recent years – and one of the seven from the sex offender registry.” (source)

Adult Swim: “Film Piracy Feeds Babies”

"A recent report claims film piracy costs the economy $20 billion annually. We say this is super misleading. Film piracy may cost the ‘film industry’ 20 billion but that money still goes into the economy. People will buy shoes or comic books or cataract surgery or even baby formula instead of spending that money on movie tickets. We say film piracy feeds babies."

Abuse of boy whose mother called gay described in graphic testimony – LGBTQ Nation

mysocalled-gay-life:

People wonder why I am so outspoken about LGBT rights. People say, “it’s 2014! Everything’s fine!” No. Not it is not fine. Stories like this are not unique. You think because we are a westernized country there is less violence towards LGBTQ people. That’s simply not true. I’m so saddened to see how this poor child of God was treated. May he rest in peace and true love in the afterlife.

This sickens me!
