I hate when people say that seeing gay couples would mess with their kids heads or traumatize them, like fuck you, I knew I liked boys and girls since I was 6 and my parents didn’t know shit. so maybe stop pushing your own shitty bigoted ideas on to your children, because seeing gay couples could be just what some kids need to know that there’s nothing wrong with them.
one of my biggest internal conflicts:
seeing a beautiful woman and thinking, I’m jealous because you’re gorgeous and I want to be you but I also want to do you…
I’m violently against that particular white feminism where “Kill All Men” is shouted by pasty white feminists as a sign of being ‘radical’ and what the fuck not. No, bitch, I’m standing in front of detention and torture cells where black and brown men are killed in more than one way. Standing in front of Gitmo, in front of TSA, standing in front of borders where brown and black men are used as bullets against each other, I don’t have the patience for your feminism. You can kill your white men and do us all a fucking favor.
Where’s my peach smoothie. Bring it.
On Friday mixed martial artist Fallon Fox will appear in her first professional fight since coming out as transgender. Fox, who came out in an interview with Outsports in March, already won a major battle when the Association of Boxing Commissions allowed her to compete as a woman, citing that she did not have a competitive physical advantage over her opponents.
Fox recently sat down with Yahoo Sports to talk all that’s led up to her history-making fight on Friday. The event will likely make Fox, who is mixed race, the highest profile transgender athlete in the country. She admits that it’s a role that she’s still learning to accept. But the fight will mark a hugely important moment in which a transgender athlete of color is capturing the sports world’s attention.
… She is now an unexpected role model for transgender athletes. While she remains a cautious speaker who is presently doing select interviews, she understands the obligation. She’s content in life. Her 16-year old daughter now lives with her in Chicago. She’s found an American society, while still with distance to travel, becoming more welcoming almost overnight. She’s chasing a dream.
“I would say to those kids that were like me not to give up,” Fallon said. “I know they are young now and they may be in a position where bullies are against them, but if they don’t give up, someday they’ll have the opportunity to be themselves, to finally have a body that they love.”
The San Francisco Chronicle changed its style on the term “illegal immigrant” Monday, Poynter.org reports. The Chronicle is the largest newspaper in Northern California and the second largest on the West Coast, according to its publisher the Hearst Corporation.
The San Francisco Chronicle’s announcement comes after the Associated Press changed its style on the term in April, followed by the Los Angeles Times in May. The New York Times urged its writers to “consider alternatives when appropriate.”
The newspaper’s new style will “essentially match” the Associated Press’ style on the term, David Steinberg, copy desk chief at the Chronicle, said in an email to Poynter.org.

people always roll their tumblr eyes at me when i start in on the “do you know how much of the food chain the mob controls” rants—but there it is. as this article says later on, food industry gang/mob control is hugely popular cuz the sentences for food related crime is not as strict as for drug related crime.
our olive oil is not really olive oil. our honey is not really honey. the mob and corporations are all over our fucking food chain. and that’s not getting into poverty, kids going hungry, etc.
but all the white kids think if we just buy the right thing, everything will be Ofucking KAY.
