this is going to be quite some week….
I just…I can’t even wrap my fucking MIND around this shit.
Wow. In case you’re having trouble understanding what happened, because I sure as hell did… Two teens rob a guy at gunpoint, afterwords they’re walking down the street and a police car pulls up and tells them to stop. The officer sees gun in one teen’s hand and shoot him dead. The other teen is now charged with murdering his friend.
That is a stupid law.
that is indeed quite fucked.
I never quite believe the whole story when an officer kills someone, especially when they didn’t actually shoot first. don’t they teach non leathal approaches to this in training, isn’t there a warning? debilitate with a non deadly shot first?
why is kill the first and final action in these situations.
that boy was just a baby, a very mislead baby

Art and music were the only places Kathleen saw that had room for contradiction and ambiguity. But even within punk rock, her peers seemed to think feminism was no longer useful. When she met other female musicians on tour, she interviewed them, asking, “How does the fact that rape exists affect your life? How does being female affect your work?” With distressing frequency she got the same answer: “Oh, it doesn’t matter that I’m a woman; I’m a musician first.” One musician admitted that her male bandmates pressured her to wear a tight dress and lipstick at shows while the guys dressed more casually. Yet she insisted she had transcended gender.
So the punk world was just as oblivious as the world at large. How could gender be irrelevant when so many girls were coming up to Kathleen in tears; when an AC/DC cover band had the nerve to accuse Viva Knievel of being a novelty act because there were two women in the group; when Kathleen and her bandmate Louise were so often the only women onstage the whole night; when they had to open for a band in Ohio whose singer blurted, between songs, “incest is best, put your sister to the test”; when Kathleen felt a terror in dark alleys behind rock clubs that the men in her band never experienced? What fantasyland were these other women living in?” —Girls to the Front, Sara Marcus (via saracrow)
Anyway, their advertising exploits women, they ignore the fact that some people literally cannot eat a vegan diet, and they assume that every one has access to the food necessary to be a “healthy” vegan. (Newsflash: they don’t.)” —
AWW YEAH, MY MAN MARK
PETA is fucking terrible.(via lattershed)
Agreed it’s just a shitty group calling itself a charity
seriously I don’t want to hear one more example comparing rape to automobile usage….it’s fucking dumb. Drunk rape is not like drunk driving and preparing for post rape abortion is not like keeping a spare tire! goddamnit!!!!!
I want to kick everything
I’m so stressed that i was totally “that bitchy customer” over the phone with a bike shop and definitely ended the convo profusely apologizing for my shitty attitude…. go me
