Israeli Women That Risk Arrest To Take Palestinian Women To The Beach

“What we are doing here will not change the situation,” said Hanna Rubinstein, who traveled to Tel Aviv from Haifa to take part. “But it is one more activity to oppose the occupation. One day in the future, people will ask, like they did of the Germans: ‘Did you know?’ And I will be able to say, ‘I knew. And I acted.’ ”

This banner appeared on ESPN’s Gameday Show between OSU and Florida State. The forced removal and subsequent deaths of thousands of Native peoples, both considered acts of genocide under the Geneva Convention, are absolutely nothing to make light of. This is exactly the racist BS spawned by race-based mascots.

Boycott All @CeeLoGreen Products!

sonofbaldwin:

This article and introduction contain discussions of rape and rape culture. Discretion is advised.

According to @CeeLoGreen, if someone is drugged unconscious, whatever sexual abuse that might happen to them while they’re unconscious can’t be considered rape because the raped person has to be conscious to recall what happened.

EXCELLENT example of the rape culture that RAINN claims doesn’t exist.

I’m advocating that we boycot ALL products in which Cee Lo participates or earns money from until he 1. Apologizes for his remarks without condition, both to the public and to the woman he accused of lying. 2. Donates a hefty sum of money to a rape prevention charity and women’s shelter. 3. Starts a college scholarship for women’s studies and semiotic theory. 4. Agrees to see a therapist to detoxify himself of his rape culture and misogynistic tendencies.

Please join me in this boycott.

Wolf X Down posted this pic on Facebook after wrapping up a couple shows in Russia. People on the page are losing their shit and making hella homophobic comments. I’ve spent a good part of my day trolling those people. Fuck the haters. Wolf X Down is fucking rad, and they keep making me love them more and more by pissing off narrow-minded assholes.

Wolf X Down being an Anti Fascist band yet some people are freaking out in the comments with homophobia. No comrades of mine!

Aeneas carrying Anchises and the Penates out of Troy (Veii, Etruria, c. 500 BCE)

Do you love me? he asks one. If I want him to remain alive, what is that to you? he says of another, and then that other reveals himself as the author of the words we are reading. The twenty-first chapter of the Gospel of John is strange (a succession struggle, like those in King Lear or in Kurosawa’s films). It is perhaps strangest when Christ prophesies Peter’s death, When thou wast young, thou girdest thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.

Why aren’t we seeing this everywhere? Soooo much more meaningful than this, which was everywhere:


Those were my EXACT thoughts.

We all know why.

"Love in the Time of Tear Gas" is a BRILLIANT title for this photo.

32,975

That’s the number of arrest warrants issued in Ferguson last year for nonviolent crimes. Compare that to the population of 21,135 people.

Ferguson is making bank off its own citizens
