We didn’t know that our activism and our peaceful displays would result in guns literally looking down our eyes. Literally looking down our eyes. Guns.
And I had young people who were willing to die. For justice. 
I had a young person — and he’s definitely the example of many young people that I represent who said "I didn’t think I would make it to twenty-one years old so I’m ready to die now. Let’s do it now."

State senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal (@MariaChappelleN) speaks on the Senate floor about the events she witnessed in Ferguson, Missouri in the weeks following the execution of Mike Brown. Senator Chappelle-Nadal was one of many protesters tear gassed for three hours without reprieve by the Ferguson PD.
She has been consistent and unrelenting in her criticism of Governor Jay Nixon — to the point of tweeting him “FUCK you, Governor!” — for his lack of action over the violation of citizens’ constitutional right to peacefully protest, and passionately vocal about the violent ways in which protesters were abused by the police.
Full video of Senator Chappelle-Nadal’s speech is available for download here (.wmv format). 

This woman is an inspiration.

  • SWERFs:

    I'm anti sex industry because I just want to help women! Sex work is sex trafficking!

  • Sex worker activists:

    Except it's not, they're two different things and the key difference between them is consent and autonomy. It's like comparing farming with agricultural slavery. Also equating sex work with sex trafficking actually harms BOTH sex workers and sex trafficking victims. There are hundreds, if not thousands of sex worker activists and academic sex workers who are working hard to improve working conditions and destigmatize sex work while creating a world in which sex trafficking doesn't exist and sex trafficking victims can seek support and help. Also by attempting to define and disempower two groups of people when you belong to neither, you are speaking over people who are perfectly capable of speaking for themselves.

  • SWERFs:

    Shhhhhhhh

  • SWERFs:

    Stop talking, I can't refute all these points but I just know you're wrong.

  • SWERFs:

    I know better than you because I am completely uninvolved in and ignorant about this industry. My ignorance makes me impartial.

  • SWERFs:

    Why are you telling me I'm talking over you, I just want to save you.

  • SWERFs:

    I'M HERE TO SAVE YOU STOP TALKING WHEN I AM SAVING YOU!

DO NOT BUY THIS BRAND.

Pedigree is on a nationwide recall.

Pedigree made my 6 month old puppy too ill to eat anything for days.

If you have this brand please toss it and buy Purina, Science Diet, or Blue.

Please do not feed this to you animals.

Do not buy this brand.

It’s true

Reblogging to let any of my friends on here who are dog owners know this…

When [Gamora] walked into that prison, there should’ve not been her being protected. She should’ve said what Rorschach said in “The Watchmen,” which was, “I am not in here with you; you people are in here with me.” Then fucking killed everyone.

[…]

Though there was a weird line, because [Drax] is super literal, and there’s a laugh line where he calls her a whore, where you’re like, ‘Wait she didn’t turn tricks at all previously in this film.’ So why does he think she might be a whore?

Jackie Kashian, on “Doug Loves Movie” about her only beefs with GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY.

She’s one of us, Tumblr.
