"A person of good intelligence and sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality - and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of a thing - it is just a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavored dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street" ~ George Carlin

This man was a pure genius.

The comic works just as well if you ignore the class labels - the white man rides straight to the top, the white woman can MAYBE make it if she climbs the treacherous rope, and the POC is going to have to learn to fly.

Are you a trans woman living in/around the Pioneer Valley in Massachusetts who would like to help advocate for the inclusion of trans women @ womens’ colleges?

We desperately need speakers for this panel event at Smith College. Please let me know through tumblr or transwomenatsc@gmail.com if you are interested. We would especially love to hear from women who are current college students!

No you don’t understand how frustrated I am that we always depicted the Apostles as old men, especially when it comes to during-Jesus-alive stuff.

They were probably late teens to early 20s, given the time and the description and some Biblical passages.

They were not ancient old men with long ass beards and wrinkles at the Last Supper.

They were young adult rebels with a cause.

And none of them were WHITE.

what’s up with the whole idea that being trans and queer is a choice?  like i get that labels are a choice but…idk i genuinely want to learn about this viewpoint so i’m tagging it

(part of this is going to involve replying to some points you posed in a different reblog; i don’t really know that i want to engage with the thread in full, so i’m just reblogging from your op)

so one of the questions you sort of implicitly bring up here and more explicitly bring up in a different reblog is whether engaging queerness and transness as choice implies treating “queer” and “trans” as labels - you make a distinction between trans and queer as label and as feeling. at least for me, saying my transness is (at least partially) about choice isn’t to treat my transness as a label so much as it is to treat my transness as a lens of self-analysis, as a way (method, process) of being-in-self as well as being-in-socius. to “choose” to be trans is to establish my relationship to my internal state and my experiences via transness and womanhood. saying, “i choose to be a woman” is to establish that my interactions with maleness and masculinity through my life were and are not reactions of some fundamental state of womanhood against a presumed manhood. it’s to acknowledge that the pressing of masculinity onto my life and my body has been an enforcing of masculinity, a forceful and purposeful and positive process of creating me as a man. saying my transness is a choice is precisely to say that my womanhood isn’t fundamentally a feeling that has existed as some irreducible core of my self, but rather a taking hold and a willful restructuring of my discursive position.

1) yes
2) definitely been reading too much foucault

America’s best states for raising black children have virtually no black children

In April, the Annie E. Casey Foundation published a study measuring the best and worst U.S. states for raising black kids. The researchers took 12 statistical metrics, from “babies born at normal birth weight” to “young adults ages 19 to 26 who are in school or working,” and made an index showing the educational, financial and career prospects for the typical black child in that state.

The results aren’t pretty | Follow micdotcom

hey sooooo remember how the police in ferguson were going to start wearing body cameras

the police officers’ union is bringing out every last excuse to keep it from actually happening

actual quote from the article: “This gotcha discipline that we have with the dash board cameras is what we’d be afraid of,” Roorda said.

"gotcha discipline"

basically “any tangible way of holding us accountable for abusing our power is what we’d be afraid of”
