    “The average life span of a transgendered person is twenty-three years. The statistic is shocking, until it begins to make sense. Gender non-conformists face routine exclusion and violence. Transgendered people are disproportionately poor, homeless, and incarcerated. Many of the systems and facilities intended to help low-income people are sex-segregated and thereby alienate those who don’t comply with state-imposed categories. A trans woman may not be able to secure a bed in a homeless shelter, for example. Spade writes that just as the feminist movement tended to “focus on gender-universalized white women’s experience as ‘women’s experience,’” the lesbian- and gay-rights movement has focused primarily on a white, middle-class politic, centered on marriage and mainstream social mores.” — Guernica / Trans-Formative Change

If the baby you aborted was going to be born gay is it a hate crime? I grew up in the church, I support gay rights whole heartedly. What I don't support is the way the community continually screams victim of the church. I know many Christians, none have ever said a homophobic thing in my presence, many of who actively support the LGBT people they know. Are there some people in the church (universal) who don't? Sure. Most of them don't care if someone is gay. They care if they are a good person.

Can I do this please

Haha

265 Anne Frank books vandalized in Tokyo libraries: Ripped copies of Anne Frank's Diary of a Young Girl; and related books are shown at Shinjuku City Library in Tokyo Friday, Feb. 21, 2014. Tokyo Libraries said on Friday that hundreds of copies of Anne Frank's diary and related books have been found vandalized across the city's libraries in the last month, sparking fears of an anti-Semitic motive.

The shame we’ll look back on years from now. The shame for not considering a black slave a PERSON. The shame of the Nazi’s for not considering a Jew a PERSON. And TODAY, for not standing up for the defenseless babe in the womb…a PERSON.

Quote:

Pro-life; women moving forward & up.

"The early feminists were pro-life. And really, abortion is a huge disservice to women, and it hasn't been presented that way. As Feminists for Life-what we're trying to do is support women, and so what we want to do is-reach women on campus-college campuses so that, when they get pregnant, they can find housing. They can find money they need to stay in school." -- Patricia Heaton

"The truth is what will bring you down."

Seriously.

Pin to your most viewed board please! Stop domestic violence!

That's what happens when you die as a teenager instead of living to adulthood.

Abortion is not synonymous with care.

I love this

Lego Just Got Told Off By A 7-Year-Old Girl - who said she can only play with the pink and purple ones and not the shark adventure ones? Lego doesn't say it, who is telling her that? Girls can play with any damn Legos they want stop assuming the cool ones are for boys and teach your daughters to think outside gender stereotypes

Because depictions of female armour are stupid. Completely and utterly stupid. And bloody well useless in a fight.

Amazing... and frightening.
