thepeoplesrecord: Amina Ismail, a journalist at McClatchy: I send my deepest condolence to the victims and families in Boston.

moniquill: regina-and-the-dragons: Pause for a moment. Does it seem weird to anyone else that the shrinking habitat of polar bears due to global warming gets more attention than the disruption and danger posed to Inuit communities by same? Boosting the fuck out of this because TRUTH. That’s because polar bears are white.

Our complicit silence is necessary for the continuation of the patriarchy, but see how angry the commenters are for listing all the examples of bad behavior? She’s ugly, she lacks talent, she’s just showing off because all women actually appreciate the attention of men, irrespective of how disrespectful that attention actually is. That anger is meant to ensure our continued complicit...

Most people I know really only care about the romantic relationship they are in.

politicalprof: Really! See, your right to vote is protected at multiple places in the Constitution, but you have to register to vote before you can use it. Somehow democracy survives. It will survive gun registration, too. I promise. Thanks for making this painfully obvious connection!

To some, even now, gun ownership remains a mark of liberty. But weapons stifle the expression that the true American project requires.
thenewwomensmovement: It’s not ‘slut-shaming’, it’s woman hating By Meghan Murphy We, in feminist land, like very much to encourage folks (particularly media-type folks, as they have a pretty significant role in framing discourse) to use correct language. Or, at very least, language that describes something real. In my last post, for example, I talked about the fact that many mainstream...

socialistexan: I’d run for office someday if I didn’t think I was one of the least electable people in this country. I’m a (non-religious) transgender, socialist, pro-Palistine, anti-imperialist Jew that wants to abolish/replace the Constitution and destroy capitalism. I’d probably still get a few votes for being white tho. I would totally vote for you - and not JUST cause I’m white!

imnotamisandristbut: Ok I am not a misandrist or anything, but I would never vote for a male running for president. Everyone knows their jobs are fixing cars and sinks, it just wouldn’t be plausible to think they could make the decisions for the country.
