Okay, this is really important.

this is much needed right now in the midst of everything else we’ve been doing in solidarity for mike - let’s not forget how Black, disabled folks are also targets, especially those with autism, due to behaviors cops love to read as “aggressive”, on top of their racism.

This is Hieu Van Le, A vietnamese refugee who came to Australia in the 70s who is now the Governor of South Australia. My favourite part of this story is where he recounts his entry to Australia: 

"Living in a refugee camp was one of the most horrific experiences one can go through," he said of the experience.
He boarded another leaky vessel to try for Australia, nervous of being turned away. But the fears proved to be unfounded. He says he still recalls the greeting he received from a pair of fisherman in a small boat off Darwin Harbour.
"One of the guys raised a stubby up as if proposing a toast. ‘G’day mate,’ he shouted. ‘Welcome to Australia’." (X)

This is the Australia I know and love, not the country that embraces a shitty racist refugee policy that locks desperate people in a multi-billion dollar prison.

I am so tired of these leftist men, the ones who are smart and sensitive and funny and being all those things, who know exactly what buttons to push, what political buzzwords to use, what to say to manipulate the women around them into protecting them from accountability for their predatory actions because there are SO MANY of you

👏👏

I love that this is the reaction now but I do not remember anyone saying this when it was Vanessa Hudgens’ ~scandalous nudes~

I hope this means society’s getting better at condemning people who violate women’s bodies and privacy instead of condemning the women, and not just that JLaw is everyone’s best friend whereas Hudgens was a Disney princess we wanted to deflower.

But it might just mean that thanks to tumblr, twitter and increasingly tailored Facebook and Google algorithms I now only see feminist news sources.

once you start to notice these little turns of phrase you literally can’t unsee them 
'protests turn violent'
'clashes with police'
'violence breaks out'
'rocked by blasts', when referring to gaza bombing 
all the nice vague statements that carefully avoid mentioning an actor, because it sounds worse if you do. this violence just spontaneously started happening, it’s crazy!!!!
i’m really tired of it

loaded language and media bias

the omission of agency in the language surrounding ferguson and gaza is astounding. it is as though both the ferguson police department and the israeli army are pillars of light through whom actions flow. they “do” nothing, to hear the media tell it. 
diagram these headlines, folks. you’ll find racism.

Last night on my walk to the bus stop, I put my ear buds in but didn’t turn the music on so that I could hear if someone walked up behind me. Someone opened their boot as I walked past and I wondered if I would be strong enough to fight them off if they tried to put me in it. I got on the bus and sat in the area which has the most cameras directed at it and hoped that no one else would get on the bus. Then two drunk men got on the bus and leered and kissed at me for the 20 minute bus drive, talking to me over the sound of my music and I had to decide if ignoring them or speaking to them would be the better option. They got off at the same bus stop as me and followed me down the street, yelling after me and I just hoped that someone would intervene if they tried to stop me on a busy street, but no one seemed to look at the girl hurrying away from two drunk men.
There’s no real point to this post except to say that this all happened in about 40 minutes. I don’t even feel as though my constant fear for those 40 minutes was unwarranted, because the two men on the bus made it clear that I do have to be on high alert every time I’m alone after dark and it’s exhausting.

Emily caught me feeding Ziggy a tuft of her own hair, which, ok, is a bit odd, so then I had to demonstrate how Ziggy seeks out her hairballs when I brush her, and eats them. Sometimes she just picks the tufts up and lets them sit on her mouth. I can’t explain it ok.
Anyway this is my fluffy dog post-brush.
