The U.S. Department of Education’s recent declaration that Title IX applies to trans students has clarified trans rights in education. This graphic shows just a few, but you can learn more here.
this guy is listening to loud ass gospel music in the library and one of the workers asked him to turn it down and he said “YOU CANT TURN DOWN JESUS”
Dear Racists: I know you’re going to to be trotting this out in the next few days claiming that this shows how white people are just as badly treated as black people in the US (though, of course, the idea that “it happens all the time” to white people is, of course, a ridiculous and disgusting lie).
But guess what, fuckheads, as usual, you’re wrong as fuck. The reason this tragedy isn’t national news is because, surprise surprise, a similar (ish) shooting of a white teenager by a black cop is being handled by the authorities completely differently! That’s right, you dumbfucks, this officer is being immediately and vigorously investigated, the officer’s name was released, the victim wasn’t denied medical care, nor was his body left on the street for hours. It’s almost like we treat black and white people differently in our justice system! And if you want to argue that the fucking Salt Lake City PD (oh shit, was I able to read about this case in the NATIONAL NEWS?!?!?! ) is racist against white people, you are fucking out of your mind.
So, nice try, you asshole, I know you were salivating over finding a case to compare this to Mike Brown, but, even with this timing, you’re not even fucking close to proving your racist “point.”

So much for a quiet night. Unrest in Ferguson, Part 1.
Tuesday night, August 19th.
This brave woman was arrested earlier today for peacefully protesting alongside that Holocaust survivor I mentioned earlier. Tons of other similar tweets of people walking in small groups, getting gassed without question or warning. It’s a shit show down there. A disgrace.
Don’t watch the news. Watch people.
Basically, the police have declared war on the people of Ferguson. Which they are apparently allowed to do since nobody’s fucking stopping them. And police aren’t bound by the Geneva Convention. Seriously, if this was happening in a warzone in a foreign country then I’m pretty sure that the UN would have said something about it by now.
