Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover
Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?
the police said she had a fully-loaded nine tho?
Today is Racist Fuckery (10.20.14): At yesterday’s protest outside the St Louis Rams game, racist fans got rowdy and physical. Who got arrested? Two of the protesters, of course. Mike Brown means we have to fight back. #staywoke
mCAT: So this happened.
Woohoo, trivialization of autism and general ableist fuckery! Dear god, if “on the spectrum” becomes the new “special” I’m going to blow a fucking fuse. (also, “I’m autistic and I’m not offended!” people, go here. Also here.)
And this should be the definitive proof of Hussie doing something that he knows will upset and hurt people and not giving a single flying fuck about it.
im fucking sick of you peope ignoring this fucking dont
"they are on a different spectrum of their own" I seriously have no words that can describe how angry this makes me.
Oh, look, Hussie’s still awful. Who would’ve guessed.
Reminder that if you’re cis, the owner of Gender of the Day and Gender of the Night requests that you do not reblog their posts. Those posts are for trans people only, and reblogging them makes you look like you’re making fun of people whose identities change frequently.
Oh my god guys, I am actually doing this. I can’t believe it. Please, please, please signal boost the shit outta this. I have been homeless on the streets and couch-surfing for the past 4 years, since I was 18yrs old and my parents choose religion over their child. This is my fucking ticket to freedom, something I have been dreaming of since the first time I attempted to run away from the abuse.
I have poured every last ounce of hope I’ve got left in my reserves for this. I haven’t looked forward to something more than a month in the future in years. I never envisioned myself living past 25, but my god in this moment I hope I can live past 50. I just… fuck. I’m so excited. :3
47 days left and $4,710 to raise. You folks should know by now to help me spread the word!
If only he had kept driving away…
trans women in seattle: do not see dr rob killian
he treats trans women as if they were cis men, and will threaten to take away your hormones if you disagree with him (and will go through with it!)
I HAVE SOME FRIENDS IN THIS AREA SO UM. LET’S NOT LET THAT HAPPEN. PLEASE AVOID THIS MISOGYNIST
WOW OKAY SPREADING THE WORD TO EVERY TRANS WOMAN I KNOW
“Hatred" is an independent PC game by a group of Polish developers. In order to set it apart for promotional reasons, the developers have stated that they are committed to "pure gameplay", claiming that mass murder of civilians by an angry disenfranchised man is more "honest" or somehow free from political narrative, unlike other modern games.Hatred is not apolitical. In fact, the opposite is true - it’s a game about glorifying violent racism and white supremacy. Consider the game’s trailer, which conspicuously lingers on the white protagonist brutally murdering and mutilating people of color.In this photo of the development team, we can see that one of the developers wears a shirt depicting a historical anti-communist military group (Żołnierze wyklęci, historically associated with the Freikorps) that is lionised by right wing extremists.Another team member, ‘CEO and Animator’ Jarosław Zieliński, has prominently displayed an endorsement on his public Facebook page of the Polska Liga Obrony: an established nationalist Islamophobic, anti-immigration hate group.Despite using registered marks held by the ESRB and Epic’s Unreal Engine attempting to legitimize their project, there is no working relationship between the studio and either organization. In a statement provided to Gamespot, Epic Games stated that “the video is using the trademarked Unreal Engine 4 logo without permission from Epic, and we’ve asked for the removal of our logo from all marketing associated with this product.”Journalists and commentators alike do the industry a disservice by obfuscating the developer’s racially charged political hate in deference to the otherwise well-trod issue of violence in games. In doing so, they are playing into the exact type of controversy its developers have sought to capitalize on.This story is a submission from one of our readers.

i knew hatred looked awful but i didn’t expect it to be made by literal neonazis
I blinked one day and when I opened my eyes, it was normal to have an American army battling Americans on American streets. No one even calls it a war. But it is.
Don’t forget this crazy shit actually happened.
Don’t forget this shit is STILL happening
!!! Attention all Youmacon/Michigan anime convention attendees! !!!
This Ash cosplayer is known to sexually harass people at cons, being that he has grabbed girls’ butts and felt up on their chests.
His name is Mitchel Kaufman and it’s advised that you be wary around him. It’s rumored that he has a friend with him often that records the harassment but is usually standing a ways away.
I don’t want anyone to go through anything like this, so please spread the word. He HAS been reported before but staff hasn’t done anything about him.
Be safe, fellow con-goers!
Okay I am ot going to lie
I know this man, I have known him for about two or three years, and this is entirely true.
He does not care about respect of female bodies, he blatantly and publically will harass them. If you see him even TRY to touch you or speak to you in an inappropriate manner, TELL SOMEONE.
I do not know his friends name, or which one it is, but if it is a man who is fairly tall, black hair, wearing a black trench coat from hot topic with him , steer clear.
Keep a sharp eye out and be safe!
Please single boost this
OKAY SO STORY TIME
My friend actually linked me to this and told me to tell about my experience with him.
I don’t exactly remember what ShutoCon it was but I think it was 2012, well it was whenever I cosplayed White from Pokemon.
Id seen him a couple times around and he was really nice to me at first so of course I was nice to him back, he did come off a little weird to me though.
Now keep in mind I’m extremely awkward when it comes to physical contact with people I dont know, and at this point I hadn’t even kissed anyone my entire life and I wasn’t even dating my first boyfriend (who is currently my boyfriend and we didn’t kiss until a month into our relationship lol) yet. I was 16 at the time.
I don’t clearly remember exactly how everything went down, but all I know is my trainer hat really saved my ass. He mentioned something about me being cute and I thanked him. He leaned in and I saw what was coming so I bent my head down and knocked my head into his. My friends saw what happened and scooted my booty out of that situation as fast as possible and I avoided any contact with him for the rest of the convention. Now I had JUST met him that weekend.
It really startled me, and I just want to make it clear that cosplay does not equal consent and someone accepting your compliment does not mean they want to kiss you or do anything physical with you. Please keep your hands to yourself and ask permission if it isn’t someone you absolutely know is okay with it.
So please signal boost!!
