it’s funny because i’ve been saying “i’m getting some trans/nonbinary vibes from Gerard Way” for weeks now.
Gerard Way talked about struggling with gender identity and not identifying with masculinity and maleness in a reddit AMA. Whether he identifies as trans and/or nonbinary i’m not 100% sure as he didn’t clearly say
(Someone else asked about pronnouns and he did say he prefers he/him)
HOW THE FUCK DID THE PERCENTAGE GO UP FOR WHITE PEOPLE
IN WHAT UNIVERSE DOES A POLICE OFFICER SHOOTING AN UNARMED BLACK KID (AND THEN ATTEMPTING TO COVER IT UP AFTER THE FACT) CONSTITUTE EQUAL TREATMENT IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM
LIKE WHO LOOKS AT THAT AND GOES “WELL, BEFORE I THOUGHT THAT THERE WAS RACISM IN OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM, BUT THEN THIS SHIT HAPPENED AND NOW I SEE THAT IT’S PERFECTLY EQUAL”
WHAT THE FUCK
This increase can be explained by an interesting social phenomenon called ‘denial.’
They benefit from not knowing.. and from believing in myths.
Comparing beliefs before and after Michael Brown’s murder and the surrounding revelations of racism that have sprung out of it, white people, as a demographic believe, MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, that the criminal justice system treats whites and blacks equally.
That is, MORE white people believe the criminal justice system treats black equally now than they did before Michael Brown’s death.
In essence, for white people, blatant systemic oppression and the murder of an unarmed young black man gives them even more reason to believe blacks are treated fairly by the system.
This confirms an earlier study that said the more you tell white people that the system is inherently racist, the more they supported harsher punishments for black people: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2014/08/07/3468368/study-white-people-support-harsher-criminal-laws-if-they-think-more-black-people-are-arrested/

My thoughts exactly on the Redskins Daily Show segment as well as just Native Mascotry issues in general.
have we ever actually eliminated unemployment at any point in the history of capitalism? no? weird, it’s almost like poverty and unemployment exist to force workers to work for lower and lower wages and to tolerate shitty working conditions lest they end up unemployed and evicted
Soon there will be people on the internet that won’t understand this picture.

a cop in arborg, manitoba who has been on the force for like twenty six raped a nine year old child and has been released
It was placed by the anti-LGBT Minnesota Child Protection League in response to a proposed policy that would allow trans high school athletes to play on teams that correspond with their gender identity.
It reads: “A male wants to shower beside your 14-year-old daughter. Are YOU ok with that?” In a full-page ad.

this is the hate group that fought to keep homophobic policies at my high school, after 4 kids had committed suicide after being bullied for their sexuality. They don’t care about children at all.
Do high schoolers ever even use locker room showers
