1. "We never say that all men deserve to feel beautiful. We never say that each man is beautiful in his own way. We don’t have huge campaigns aimed at young boys trying to convince them that they’re attractive, probably because we very rarely correlate a man’s worth with his appearance. The problem is that a woman’s value in this world is still very much attached to her appearance, and telling her that she should or deserves to feel beautiful does more to promote that than negate it. Telling women that they “deserve” to feel pretty plays right in to the idea that prettiness should be important to them. And having books and movies aimed at young women where every female protagonist turns out to be beautiful (whereas many of the antagonists are described in much less flattering terms) reinforces the message that beauty has some kind of morality attached to it, and that all heroines are somehow pretty."

    Shaun King has found out the Military/National Guard are doing secret drills to shut down protesting that will come after Darren Wilson is not indicted.

    They are also planning on shutting down the airports.

    lesbianesque[tw: homophobic violence]


    Today my hometown was struck by a disgusting hardship.

    A woman this afternoon was found by a neighbor, bleeding and naked. She was attacked in her home because she was gay. Two or more men broke into her home through the basement and proceeded to tag her basement. They found the homeowner, who is an open lesbian, and stabbed, assaulted, and carved “dyke” into her chest. They attempted to burn her house to the ground, but the gas only sparked. Somehow, this woman (who remains anonymous until she decides to come out on her own time) was able to escape. She was found naked, bound with zip ties, and bloody. She is still alive and in the hospital. A candle light vigil was held in her name tonight, where more than 500 people from Lincoln and surrounding cities and states joined to talk about the hate and to pay homage to the victim.

    A recovery fund has been set up to help her cover medical bills and anything she may need. That link can be found here, along with a link from the original news story.

    Why doesn’t this get a full day of news coverage and nationwide outrage?

    I know someone who lives just blocks away with her partner. They are terrified. It’s sickening.

    To the anon who claimed mocking a T-shirt in support of Joe Paterno is a hate crime: No. THIS is a hate crime.

    Absolutely, utterly horrifying.

    Why the FUCK isn’t this on the news. I just watched the news for like two hours, no mention of this. What the fuck.

  5. "A friend of mine asked me recently, was I gonna go see the new Batman movie with him. But I don’t respect the concept of Batman because of what I understand about politics now. I’mma lay it out for you: rich dude owns a corporation with state of the art equipment, and he uses this to beat up on street level crime. He doesn’t mess with the industrialists, or the super capitalists, or the Murdochs, or the Trumps. He really just fucks with the person that’s on the corner. Batman is a conservative’s wet dream. Fuck Batman."
