Sgt. Thomas McVicar of the Jersey City Police Department shot 22 year old Kwadir Felton, leaving him blind, after Kwadir pulled a gun on him, he claims. Kwadir Felton denied the accusation, stating that he doesn’t even carry guns.
"I don’t understand!" Felton yelled at a police officer before his mother was removed from the courtroom. "You didn’t have to shoot me in the head for no reason! You trying to charge me with something I didn’t do!"

i wasn’t aware we did. i’m so sorry! tumblr is a vast place and i don’t know what else someone posts on their blog when i find a recipe or story of theirs in the no-more-ramen tag. if you submit the user to me i’ll go back and delete the post.
The majority of people are upset at this blog being a safe space and I’m always so confused…
Excluding terf posts makes this blog safe for trans and nonbinary folx who may want to click through posts on no-more-ramen, but people are being poopy about it???
So so very much support for no-more-ramen for supporting those who need this resource most — the disproportionately high numbers (compared to general population) of trans, queer, or otherwise marginalised youth who live on low incomes or in poverty.
I was a recipe??? Do you go to the blogs of VERY SINGLE PERSON that this blog reblogs to see if your politics align?? I highly fucking doubt it
Well, as this blog is a public representation of my life and interests and the personal is very much political, yes. Insofar as I can, I do. Generally if I find that someone is anti-trans or something else I am entirely opposed to I will unfollow or remove their content. There are some instances where I’ll reblog someone who holds toxic political views, but I am most often aware of it and have other reasons I am ready and willing to outline. The internet and (especially) platforms like tumblr are a public forum. Therefore the things I reblog and the people I do so from matter to my personal and public politics.
I’m sorry, but did you know that the phrase “the personal is political” was, in fact, coined by a radical feminist?
"Feminist and writer Carol Hanisch’s essay titled "The Personal is Political" appeared in the anthology Notes From the Second Year: Women’s Liberation in 1970. She is therefore often credited with creating the phrase. However, she wrote in an introduction to the 2006 republication of the essay that she did not come up with the title. She believed "The Personal Is Political" was selected by the editors of the anthology, Shulamith Firestone and Anne Koedt, who were both feminists involved with the group New York Radical Feminists."
You’re quoting a radical feminist to defend deleting a recipe written by a Radical feminist.
I think you should delete your blog. Obviously, it’s not a safe space. Your use of that phrase could trigger someone, you know.

There ARE laws against this. It’s called rape by deception or fraudulent rape and basically, it’s anytime the conditions of your consent are compromised. In a situation like this, you consented to protected sex. By having sex in a way you did not consent to, a crime WAS committed and he could be charged if any physical effects like pregnancy or STD occurred. Remember, ANY SEXUAL ACTIVITY YOU DON’T CONSENT TO IS RAPE.
If a guy does this, it’s rape. Call the cops. Ruin his life since he has no problem risking yours. Make him fucking learn. Rapists belong in jail. Rape by deception is rape, not a funny “meme”.

The next generation of scientists is already hard at work solving our biggest problems. Take Deepika Kurup, a 14-year-old high school student from Nashua, New Hampshire. After seeing children in India drinking dirty water from a stagnant pool, she decided, in her words, “to find a solution to the global water crisis.” And then she actually made some progress towards that goal, developing a solar-powered water purification system.
She is the future
Ever notice how it’s always brilliant teenagers making stuff that will actually solve the world’s worst problems, like what do adults even do?
i would laugh at the fragility of the male ego
but then i remember that women are assaulted and killed for threatening it
is that character “queer”? are they? did they really call themselves that, or are there more specific and useful words you could use instead??? what are those again??
yes. i think the liberal usage of queer as a placeholder for lesbian, gay, and bisexual unwittingly serves to erase those sexualities.
