I love how the bird leaves like “well, I best be hitting the dusty trail”

Men Horrified by Women-Only ‘Wonder Woman’ Screening

“The Drafthouse event invitation reads: “Apologies, gentlemen, but we’re embracing our girl power and saying ‘No Guys Allowed’ for one special night at the Alamo Ritz. And when we say 'People Who Identify As Women Only,’ we mean it. Everyone working at this screening — venue staff, projectionist, and culinary team — will be female.“ 

There were also some men who voiced their support of the event. 

"This is a great idea and I will see it another time!” said one commenter. “Wow, that was easier than deciding to feel persecuted!”

#ItsSoEazy

United Airlines apologizes for accusing a gay father of groping his child

In a statement provided to a CNN affiliate, United Airlines issued a formal apology to the family of Henry Amador-Batten, a 53-year-old gay father whom United flight attendants accused of fondling his child on the family’s flight home to North Carolina.

According to CNN, police officers for the Raleigh-Durham airport interrogated Amador-Batten on his Saturday flight from Newark, New Jersey, after United flight attendants, apparently unaware that the two were family, notified the authorities that they witnessed a man on their flight resting his hands “near the genitals” of a little boy.

Upon questioning, Amador-Batten told airport police that he kept his hand on his son’s lap to assuage the child’s fears of flying. Read more (5/26/17)

No. Fly. List.

Scary shit is going on in Portland. Three people were stabbed on a light rail train tonight because they came to the aid of a woman in a headscarf being verbally attacked. Two of them died. There was a right-wing march down 82nd Ave (an area where there are lots of Asian businesses and low-income people of all races live) where white supremacist slogans were shouted last month. And there’s going to be a rally June 4 with a bunch of white supremacist fuckwits (Nazi imagery at that link) downtown somewhere. 

I have talked on many occasions about the white supremacy that pervades Oregon’s very founding and Portland’s increasing whiteness, but this is still scary as fuck. Be careful out there, protect yourselves and those more vulnerable than you if you can.

I think “Congratulations on finally getting your diagnosis” cakes need to be a thing.

I bet you all thought I was joking…

I never joke about cake.

My OP is suddenly getting a shit-ton of reblogs and I’ve been sitting here all day thinking “you guise are all missing the best part!”

Like, yeah. Diagnosis cakes should be a thing. So goddamnit I made it a thing for myself. You can too.

You deserve a cake.

I love cake, and I love being right about medical issues, so this is perfect.

Security services missed five opportunities to stop the Manchester bomber:

thickskinandelasticheart:

mehreenkasana:

The Manchester bomber was banned from a local mosque and reported by the Muslim community around him multiple times. UK authorities didn’t act.

I repeat: Not once, not twice, not thrice. Five times. They were alerted five times by the Muslim community around the bomber and were ignored.

Specifically, two of his close friends reported him after he made comments praising suicide bombers.

Two of his friends.

And it was ignored. And instantly after this happened and the bomber was identified as a Muslim, people began saying how ‘Muslims need to take greater steps to confront extremism in their own communities’, even though a mosque literally banned him, reported him and two of his friends did the same when he began expressing extremist sentiment.

Muslims can’t win even when they do the right thing.

Even worse, they also had info from other counter-terrorist agencies that he had ties with groups in Lybia and that his father had them as well. They did nothing.

Woooow. So basically:

Non Muslims: Please weed out the extremist from your groups MOZLEMS you need to take action!

Muslims: Here he is !! We’re warning you he’s an extremist!

Non Muslims: …….

Non Muslims: ANYWAY MOZLEMS NEVER SPEAK UP

You can’t understand politics in Montana without understanding how racism against Natives operates, fueling right-wing ire at Native people’s control over land and resources and presumptions that we’re corrupt, lazy, and hoarding money from hard-working whites who want to have the land for their own version of highest and best use, Gianforte ran on a racist campaign for that reason but only other Natives are talking about this aspect of the election and I am fucking sick to death of having to force the issue and get Americans to even think we constitute a political part of life worth more than evoking a crappy metaphor about immigrant nativism or the environment. 

In his race for governor in 2014 Gianforte said that Native Americans lacked “rule of law, respect for property rights, control of nepotism, ability to keep the fruits of their labor, and a cultural norm that celebrates success.” You really can’t get more blatantly racist than that.

this makes me so fucking mad
