girl scouts are letting in trans* girls and letting girls replace God with whatever they want in the pledge, also they use cookie income to support abortion and LGBT agendas
boy scouts are just now allowing gays in, officially in january, but gay leaders are still banned and they’re talking about segregation on camping trips, with gays and straights in different tents. also they still ban atheists,
The GOP has a plan to stop Wendy Davis: blatant voter suppression.
Women don’t like having their bodies policed, and are supporting Davis like no Democrat has been backed before. But Republicans aren’t fighting back on the issues — they’ve pushed through a Voter ID law that blocks the votes of countless Texas women.
The only way the GOP can keep Texas is by rigging the game. Women have the power to turn this state blue for the first time in two decades, but we need to help secure their rights first. Please, join us in calling on the Texas legislature to get rid of this unconstitutional Voter ID lawand stop trying to strip women of their votes.
The whole straight narrative is there for you to inherit, it’s just there. There to shape your foundations, to set you up… Boy meets girl, they go skipping through the meadows and that’s how your life is set. Everything is there. All the books, all the films, all the tv shows, everything is just inherited to you… given to you.
There is literally no reason for there not to be disabled people in every form of media
estimates put disabled people at about 10-20% of the population and yet we are nigh on invisible in mainstream media unless we are there to show how beautiful life is and ~inspire~ an abled protagonist
every show, every book, every film should be showing disabled people, we exist and we have always existed
and please widen the range as well, skinny white cishet boys are not the only people who are disabled
the civil rights movement was a social justice movement. women’s liberation was a social justice movement. abolitionism was a social justice movement. and these are just a couple of western examples. how do you in your right mind go “yeahhh i’m kinda against that sort of thing”
I am tired, not of arguing in favour of equality, diversity and tolerance, but of having to explain, over and over and over again, why such arguments are still necessary, only to have my evidence casually dismissed by someone too oblivious to realise that their dismissal of the problem is itself a textbook example of the fucking problem. I am tired of being mocked by hypocrites who think that a single lazy counterexample is sufficient to debunk the fifteen detailed examples they demanded I produce before they’d even accept my point as a hypothetical, let alone valid, argument. I am tired of assholes who think that playing Devil’s Advocate about an issue alien to their experience but of deep personal significance to their interlocutor makes them both intellectually superior and more rationally objective on the specious basis that being dispassionate is the same as being right (because if they can stay calm while savagely kicking your open wound, then clearly, you have no excuse for screaming).
During tough economic times many people around the world find it difficult to afford life’s basic necessities. Nearly half (a median of 49%) of those surveyed by the Pew Research Center in developing economies and a quarter (25%) in emerging markets say that, at some point in the past year, they have been unable to afford food that their families needed.
we’re number one, etc
Looking at this chart (and I don’t particularly like the way this chart is put together, but let’s work with it), it says that per capita GDP in China is $9K, compared to $50K in the US; yet the percentage of people experiencing food insecurity in the US is a staggering 24%, about a quarter of the population, three times as high as China’s 8%. Despite the US’s disproportionate wealth and China’s relative poverty (lower GDP per capita than South Africa, Brazil, Mexico, Tunisia), I guess we’ve nevertheless reached a point where Chinese parents are telling their children to finish what’s in their rice bowl because there are hungry children in the USA.
