if pokemon trainers can pretty much instantly start calling their pokemon by their new names when they evolve then im quite sure you can call your friend by their new name when they change their gender
you are the future
do you ever keep tabs open thinking “eh i’ll get to that later” and then five weeks pass and you still haven’t fucking done anything with it
Usually my computer has to force restart or something before I get to many of them an I wind up losing them entirely.
All the old white conservatives on facebook are either romanticizing his pacifist era or talking about his militant era completely out of context. Not a single person seems to have any perspective on his complete life’s work,
this is why im done with politics.
This is why I am done with white “christian” men in politics
WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK

A faculty member at Minneapolis Community and Technical College, Shannon Gibney, received a formal reprimand for her handling of a discussion about structural racism in her Introduction to Mass Communication course.
According to Gibney inan interview with City College News, a white male student asked her, “Why do we have to talk about this in every class? Why do we have to talk about this?”
She claims she was shocked, because “[h]is whole demeanor was very defensive. He was taking it personally. I tried to explain, of course, in a reasonable manner — as reasonable as I could given the fact that I was being interrupted and put on the spot in the middle of class — that this is unfortunately the context of 21st century America.”
Gibney says another white male student followed the first, saying “Yeah, I don’t get this either. It’s like people are trying to say that white men are always the villains, the bad guys. Why do we have to say this?”
When Gibney attempted, again, to inform the students that they were mistaking a systemic critique for a personal attack, the students continued to argue. Eventually, she told them that “if you’re really upset, feel free to go down to legal affairs and file a racial harassment discrimination complaint.” This is exactly what they did.
Gibney is familiar with white male students taking discussions about structural racism as personal attacks, as it has happened before: ina 2009 incident, an editor of the school newspaper took offense at a similar discussion. In both that case and this one, Gibney received an official reprimand. After the latest accusation, the Vice President of Academic Affairs appended a letter to her file, in which he said he found it “it troubling that the manner in which you led a discussion on the very important topic of of structural racism alienated two students who may have been most in need of learning about this subject.”
“While I believe it was your intention to discuss structural racism generally,” he continued, “it was inappropriate for you to single out white male students in class. Your actions in [targeting] select students based on their race and gender caused them embarrassment and created a hostile learning environment.”
Gibney told lawyers at an investigatory meeting for an anti-discrimination lawsuit she and six other professors are filling against MCTC that the vice president’s words “have helped those three white male students succeed in undermining my authority as one of the few remaining black female professors here.”
There’s a lot of irony in this story. In the students’ subsequent freak out about feeling “singled out” about structural racism they went over her head and tried to get the professor fired…indicating structural racism.
Just another case of a shitty white dude taking it too personally because HE SHOULD BE because HE IS PART OF THE PROBLEM.

He woke up ambiguously. “Hmm,” he seemed to say as he looked warily around him. Time for another day of swords or drugs or making business, whatever his job was.
He lit seventeen cigarettes, because who the fuck cared. “I’m a man,” he announced to the room. “I’m a goddamn man and sometimes I have to make the tough decisions that no one asked me to make and my jaw looks like a shovel and I have an important job, so fuck you,” just in case someone was listening.
He picked his daughter up from wherever she had been before he picked her up.
“You look different from before,” he said to her.
She nodded. “Oh, yeah. That’s from time.”
He thought about it for a minute. She might be interesting after all. Not like her mother. That bitch. He handed her a cigarette.
LOL, Umberto. The most absurd plot point in 7th Heaven. Like Rose is seriously considering that schlub over Simon?
I hear a lot of people saying “I’m not a Feminist, I’m an Equalist!”
You can talk all you want. Unless you LIVE the tenants outlined by the spirits to Amon and will do ANYTHING to fight bender oppression, you are not an Equalist.
I’ve come to decide that in our time, in it’s current form, the word feminism is incorrect and not what women actually want. Feminism and Feminist are similar to racism and racist and as such generate confusion because it evokes and idea of treating women differently, whether better or worse, than men. Instead equalistic would be a better term showing that you believe in the ideas of equality.
Yes, feminism is definitely the same as racism. I’m glad you made that decision for everyone so we can all progress as a society together as ~*equalists*~
