By @snicolen58 “What does it say about our country that OTHER countries news outlets have said more about what is going on in Ferguson than our own?? What does it say about our country that some of the leaders in our government are calling human beings feral and excusing the disgusting, shameful acts of policemen?? What does it say that black youth and black men are killed every single day for simply walking on the sidewalk UNARMED?? What does it say about our country that instead of outrage and protest, our nation continues to hide and cover up the disgusting acts against other human beings because of the color of their skin?? This is disgusting and I cannot say that I have ever been MORE ashamed to be an American than I am today. This is not freedom. This is not a democracy. This is brutality. This is murder. This is prejudice and bigotry. This is SHAMEFUL and Americans should be OUTRAGED. #Ferguson #MikeBrown #DontShoot” via @PhotoRepost_app
So, I was in the middle of searching for how long Keke Palmer will be on Broadway as Cinderella. Gotta get my ticket. I scrolled down and saw this first comment:
The reach with this one disneyfied ass tale. They, however, have no problem whitewashing different races and ethnicities and see our disdain as sensitive and “reverse racist.” Case in point: Exodus - God and Kings, the new British-American biblical movie set in Egypt, that has caused uproar and boycotts:
Apparently these are acceptable…
Lemme not go over the post limit. This is just a handful that scratch the surface.
The Find Legal Answers website has information about the law regarding abortion in NSW in the health section. The Family Court of Australia decided a case in 2012 where a man sought to prevent his partner from having an abortion. They found they did not have the necessary jurisdiction to intervene.
The main problem I have with Men’s Rights Activists is that their name really doesn’t do them justice. They’re Straight Cis White Men’s Rights Activists. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for the inclusion of trans* men in their spaces.
I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign to end the social stigma around black fatherhood. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for better pay and equal career mobility for men of colour. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists actively campaign for more gay men’s rights. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists advise others in their group on how using f*ggot to emasculate men who aren’t part of their cause is alienating and marginalising other MEN.
I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support victims of male rape unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of rape. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support male victims of domestic abuse unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of domestic abuse. Men’s Rights Activists are hypocrites and frauds.
They’re bitter privileged white men who don’t want to campaign for the rights of men — they want to campaign to keep their privilege unchecked and their ability to discriminate against others. If you want to be a real Men’s Rights Activist — be a fucking (intersectional) Feminist. Peace out.
All of this. The only men they care about are themselves, and the only thing they don’t like is that they might be treated the same way as everyone else.
