Argentina: doing it right. After passing a groundbreaking gender identity law on Wednesday, Argentina, which became the first Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage, now leads the entire world when it comes to trans rights.
The new law, which was passed by 55-0 and is expected to be signed by president Cristina Fernandez, grants trans people the right to legally change their gender identity without having to get approval from doctors or judges–and, importantly, without having to change their bodies at all first. Not having a valid ID that matches your gender identity is a huge barrier to access to education, employment, health care, you name it. As Kalym Sori, an Argentinian trans man said, “This is why the law of identity is so important. It opens the door to the rest of our rights.”

Let’s move there

I’ve noticed professors really like to say “not everything is black and white” when you point out all the evil shit the empire does while proceeding to paint a very black and white picture of a situation where the empire is firmly in the white.

let’s review the ratings *filters the white reviews*

This is why it’s important we flood the theaters when this goes into theaters.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But if a white person did dear black people it would be wrong

…yes, yes it would…
what do white people have to say to black people that we don’t tell them every day already with our actions, judgments, racial stereotypes, laws, and police force?
white people don’t have anything to say to black people because we already have a say in everything they do and have done for the last few hundred years. one movie where black people have the spotlight over white people, calling out blatant and subtle racism in our society, isn’t going to kill us.
get the fuck over your white superiority complex. you don’t stand to lose anything, but black people stand to gain everything.

Apparently there’s a pro-officer Wilson rally going on today, and someone’s carrying a sign that says “innocent until proven guilty” in support of Wilson.
That seems ridiculously ironic. Shouldn’t Mike Brown have been given that kind of consideration and been seen as innocent as well? But instead, Wilson played judge and executioner.

Notice what skin color all these protestors share. It’s not a coincidence.

They won’t get pepper sprayed or anything though

^^^ bam

yeah this is a rally, remember, not a riot

you scared she gonna strike out yr precious baby boy? OH TOO LATE.

they were doing a special on her on one of the news channels at the gym. i didnt have the headphones so i couldnt hear the story, but one of the photos they showed was of a little girl in the crowd holding up a sign that said “I want to throw like a girl.” For every pathetic, insecure grown man who is threatened by this amazingly talented girl, hopefully there is another little girl who is inspired. But that she has to put up wit this kind of abuse even though she is OBJECTIVELY the best pitcher in the league right now and can throw a ball SEVENTY MILES PER HOUR is absolutely uncalled for. She is truly phenomenal, and those dads can all go eat shit and live

Go on with your bad self

I love that, in a brief interview I got to see, she stated that her main goal was to have more girls play ball so that “we could maybe get our own locker room.” Like, that’s all she wanted, and then she went back to talking about how winning is a TEAM effort and that the reporter should interview the rest of the team, too.I LOVE THIS ONE.
