so there’s this transphobic 30-some year old conservative shithead spamming up my business page’s wall, inbox, and his own wall with pure, unadulterated 12 y/o anger. I deleted a lot of it already, but this is what remained to be screencapped. he’s trying to track my address down but has had the wrong one twice now, and doesn’t even have my legal name to find it with. he’s taken to contacting me through email after i blocked him through all other routes. He also called me a flurry of disgusting slurs on the wall of my business page, but that’s long since deleted.
he’s trying to ruin my business, but it isn’t working very well. would any of the kind people of tumblr like a custom built computer? you could totally help me make this backfire in his face, if you need one!
p.s. his name is Jim Quesada, his fb photo is of Mighty Mouse - if you can’t see the photos. and i censored the misgendering.
p.p.s. my “sick and twisted message” was “Misogynistic dickholes should probably not speak publicly.” He was being one. :|
please signal boost this if you’d like to help me sell a computer or two before christmas - i’m trying to visit my mistress for the holidays and scope out moving in with her!
UK Border Agency are in train stations in the South. They are randomly checking the immigration status of people of colour.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE STOPPED BY IMMIGRATION OFFICERS (UKBA)
If the UK Border Agency or police stop you in the street and ask about
your immigration status:
- You DO NOT have to answer any questions.
- You DO NOT have to tell them your name or address.
- Tell them that you do not want to talk to them.
- Stay polite but confident.
- You can walk away.
They are not allowed to stop you just because of your race. They can only stop you if they have a good reason. If they stop you just because of how you look, or the language you speak, tell them: “This is racist”. “This is illegal”. “I will make a complaint”.
If you are detained, call Bail for Immigration Detainees (independent from us): 020 7247 3590
What to do if you see someone being stopped
If you see someone being stopped by UKBA officers or police on immigration grounds, and your immigration status does not put you at risk yourself, it is recommended that you:
- Immediately make the person aware that they do not have to answer
questions & that they can leave
- Remind the officers of the law
- Film the incident, where possible asking the person stopped if that’s
ok, or just filming the officers involved. This may be useful in making a
claim in the event of an unlawful stop or arrest.
- Record the lapel numbers of the officers involved
- Make other members of the public aware of what’s happening
- Get witnesses’ contact details if the stop leads to an arrest or the
person wants to pursue it afterwards
- Attempt to pass on a phone number to the individual if you think the
stop will lead to arrest
- Try not to get aggressive or physically obstruct officers if you want to
avoid being arrested for obstruction.

Yeah, I heard the other day that this has started happening, and it’s making me want to go and hang around in train stations
in full superhero costumejust so I can leap out with a camera if I see this happening and start screaming “RACISTS! RACISTS EVERYWHERE!” until they stop.
I sincerely doubt they’ll be turning up in Swansea, though.
I am ashamed of my country. I am so so ashamed.
I used to do first line IT support for the Home Office and the UKBA and let me tell you they are the biggest bunch of fucknuts you will ever encounter.

Vigil for Islan Nettles, a transgender woman attacked and killed in Harlem last week, to be held tomorrow, Tuesday, August 27th at 6pm
Last week, the New York City Anti-Violence Project (AVP) learned of the death of Islan Nettles, a transgender woman, who died as a result of an attack which occurred in the early morning hours on Saturday, August 17, in Harlem.
According to media reports and the NYPD, Ms. Nettles and her friends were on West 148th Street and 8th Avenue on Saturday night when one or more people attacked her, using anti-gay and anti-transgender slurs. Ms. Nettles was taken to Harlem Hospital for her injuries and, on Thursday August 22nd, was taken off of life support and died. So far, one person has been arrested in relation to this incident.
NCAVP’s most recent report, Hate Violence Against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and HIV-Affected Communities in the United States in 2012, documented 25 anti-LGBTQ murders. 73.1% of all anti-LGBTQ homicide victims in 2012 were people of color and 53.8% were transgender women. In this report, NCAVP provides specific recommendations for policymakers, funders, and community members to reduce and prevent violence against transgender people of color.
VIGIL TOMORROW NIGHT – TUESDAY, AUGUST 27TH AT 6PM
Ms. Nettles’ family, along with Harlem Pride and the Manhattan Borough President’s Office, is organizing a vigil as a celebration of Islan, her love of life, and an opportunity for the community to come together in unity and peace.
Date: Tuesday, August 27, 2013
Location: Jackie Robinson Park; Entrance on W. 148th Street @ Bradhurst Avenue, Harlem

Sorry to reblog from the source, but I thought the chain of comments was rather unnecessary. All that needs to be said is that this documentary examines gender inequality and how patriarchy contributes negatively to our society.
This is a feminist issue.
And anyone on Tumblr who’s too close-minded to recognize it as such due to a nonsensical blanketed hatred of men’s issues need to re-evaluate their motives.
THESE ARE REAL AND HORRIBLE MALE ISSUES CAUSED BY THE PATRIARCHY. IF YOURE FEMINIST, THESE SHOULD ANGER YOU. IF YOU’RE NOT, HERES ANOTHER REASON TO SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT.
have I already reblogged this? don’t give a fuck.
Also, a lot of boys of color are the ones that especially go through this shit at the hands of colonial/imperial white supremacist patriarchy.
Standing in Our Power (SiOP) is an intergenerational network of women of color leaders who are committed to a just, equitable and sustainable world, and who are seeking to transform our leadership by building new leadership models. Inclusive and collective in nature, the network amplifies the voices and perspectives of women of color, and establishes new leadership models and practices rooted in our vision, values, experience and cultural assets. Read More about SiOP.
If you are a woman of color leader working to creating a just, equitable and sustainable world, and would like to further develop your leadership within a supportive community, please consider applying to be part of the Standing in Our Power (SiOP) 2013-2014 Transformative Leadership Institute. The 10-month program kicks off with a national gathering at Hope Springs Institute in Ohio from October 2-6, 2013, and is followed by coaching, trainings and peer mentorship.
In 2007, I was a 17 year old boy in high school who at first impression could be profiled as a criminal. I wore baggy clothing, had a foul mouth, and I fit the physical profile of guys who commit crimes every day. A lot like Trayvon.
After Trayvon’s death, white supremacist, Klanklannon, hacked into Trayvon’s email to try and find more pictures of him with gold teeth and smoke, things that would “justify” killing him as he made his way back to his family unarmed.
But what he found was college scholarship applications. Yes, Trayvon Martin had hopes of going to college to study aeronautics. He was also taking honors courses in high school. Even though Trayvon and I are a lot alike, that’s where we differ. He was actually achieving more than I did and had much bigger dreams as a junior in high school.
Another way we differ, is in the opportunity to live out our potential. I’m sure a neighborhood watchman wouldn’t have picked me to obtain a degree 5 years later, start a non-profit, write a book, and go on to reach thousands every day. And he didn’t pick Trayvon either, so sadly we’ll never know what his story could’ve been.
All of this to say, even if you don’t consider yourself racist, be careful of the stereotypes you draw based on looks. Everyone isn’t what they seem, but everyone deserves a chance to prove that.

i really hope you guys like this story beCAUSE IM GOING TO REBLOG IT EVERY DAY.
just a heads up on religious intolerance:
this mall denied a costume shop (correct…costume shop) the right to rent retail space there because of “religious belief”. meaning that they are fundamentalists who found out that the owner of this costume shop, Klawdya Rothschild is active in the kink community that their special penises from god would be violated, shrivel up and fall off in eternal damnation - if they let a kinky person with a uterus open a goddamn costume shop.
the business, Klawtex, has been operating in NYC for 3 years. Costume Shock was to be the next iteration, as a full purpose costume studio, that featured Klawtex as a brand.
obviously, this is in direct violation of a penis loving misogynist and hateful god.
tell everyone you know not to shop there or to visit their facebook page and tell the fundie fucks what you think of using personal belief in an invisible sky god from the Bronze Age as justification for punishing a uterused person in 2013.
personally, I think all religions should be taxed. the motherfuckers would sing a much more accommodating tune and at the very least, their sanctimonious bile would be helping to fund paved streets, bridges and schools.
as an ancient Chinese general once said on the eve of a great battle: "bite me, you pompous fucks"
Senator Wendy Davis will be filibustering SB5, a bill that if passed down almost all of the abortion clinics operating in Texas. The special session ends at midnight Tuesday which means Davis could kill the legislation by talking nonstop for thirteen hours.
Very disturbing information has emerged about an incident which recently occurred at the Peace Bridge, one of the road crossings along the Canada / U.S. border, at the hands of Canada’s federal Border Services Agency (CBSA).
People who do good things shouldn’t be punished—they should be helped. Which is why I’m making it my personal mission to help this absolutely AMAZING local establishment that currently has a $20,000 vet bill.
The Animal Protection Association has helped countless animals in our area. Just last night, Aaron and I were going to the gas station when we came across a few people all looking concerned around a young cat. We stopped and discovered this poor animal had been hit by a car. She was hurt, but her injuries were not fatal, so long as we could get her the care she needed. We took her home in a box given to us by the gas station and kept her through the night. But we were stressing about the cost of the vet—there was no way we could afford to pay for what she needed done, but we were going to anyway if we had no other option. In the morning we decided, on a chance, to call the APA and ask if they could help. We’ve adopted animals from them before and knew they were a trusted shelter.
The woman on the phone sounded heartbroken when she told me that just yesterday they had to put a freeze on taking in any animals or helping with vet bills. I was tearing up and giving up hope when she sighed and said, “I can’t turn away an injured cat.” My face lit up and a few hours later the poor cat we found—which we named Lucky—was taken to their clinic downtown and is now getting the care she needs. Since we can’t home her, they are also taking her into their care.
This is only one example of how amazing this selfless organization is. They are a strictly no-kill shelter, and their cat shelter is AMAZING. No cages for the animals except some nice, large wooden pens on the walls for kittens, sick or mean cats. Otherwise their cats run around free in a small-sized house with cat furniture everywhere, along with a few outdoor pens so they can bird watch.
But the Animal Protection Association—indeed any and all animal shelters that operate on donations alone—need your help. If you live in the Louisville/Jeffersonville area, you can volunteer your time. Otherwise, if you could please, please make a donation of any kind to this loving association I am sure it would be GREATLY appreciate.
The title is a link to the Donation page of their website. You can donate to them via PayPal, but they also have an address for checks or money orders.
Please everyone—winter is coming. Cold, harsh, and unforgiving weather for a lonely cat or dog. With your help—and I believe in Tumblr—we can make the APA stronger and more fit to help even more animals.
Even if you can’t donate, PLEASE signal boost this. Their current vet debt is $20,000, and at this rate I think Lucky might’ve been REALLY Lucky, because I think she’s the last cat they might have been able to help. And they helped us so much, I want to do whatever I can to help this place and the wonderful people who run it for no profit—only the genuine happiness that comes from helping an animal that cannot help itself.
And remember, all donations are tax-deductible!
The APA has gotten $700! Woohoo everyone~!
From my friend Jennifer:
pro-choice & abortion access friends: your financial help is needed! Georgia Reproductive Justice Access Network, one of the only abortion funds in the southeast, is down to $89. they need an infusion of money FAST so they can keep their fund up and helping those who are pregnant afford abortion care. please give as much as you can!
I say this often about abortion funds but they help people who desperately need to get an abortion but cannot afford it. These are people in the most dire of circumstances.
When you donate to an abortion fund you 1) know your money will go directly toward helping someone and 2) you will make someone’s life better.
If you can, please donate to this abortion fund.
Tuesday, September 25, 2012 is National Voter Registration Day.
TurboVote is a non-partisan web service that makes registering to vote as easy as returning Netflix DVDs.
They don’t care who you vote for as long as you give yourself the opportunity to choose who represents you in (US) government.
The whole thing takes less than 5 minutes.
When you aren’t registered, it seems overwhelming. It seems like it isn’t worth it. I remember that feeling from 1996. But it’s not that hard, and few things feel better. It’s worth it. Get registered.
Seriously the easiest thing you will do today.
