Illustrated poetry: ‘Oh rascal children of Gaza’

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.”

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
