@ bi youth: your identity is whole. you are not half anything. you are completely bi. it is a whole identity, in and of itself: a real, lived actuality that carries its own history, culture, and pride. you do not need to search for any missing pieces, because being bi is complete, and it’s possible, and it’s you.

Never saw anybody talk about this but an intersex girl is in the Olympics !!
Her name is Caster Semenya and she has a higher level of testosterone in her body. She’s running for South Africa August 17th in the Women’s 800m.
Root for her !
You guys don’t understand how happy this makes me, you hear nothing about intersex people or anything we do or even our deaths at the hands of the medical field.
Nobody ever talks about us and now in the 2016 Olympics stands an intersex person ready to win gold and I couldn’t be happier to see it. People are going to talk about us soon and I hope it’s in good spirits. I hope Caster takes gold for South Africa.
You run a tattoo parlor. Every couple of weeks, the same customer comes in, always requesting the same tattoo: an additional tally mark on an ever-growing cluster of tally marks.
“what are you counting”
“how many tattoos i’ve gotten”
“i’m no longer serving you”
Watch: The most wonderful moment of joy came when he entered a Nazi guard bungalow.
We are the last generation who can hear from these survivors directly. Do not take that lightly. Do not waste that opportunity. Do not forget your freedom isn’t infinitely guarenteed. And do not, do not, let it happen again.
Really truly, watch the video, reblog it. Teaching about the holocaust is so necessary for our generation before it slips under the rug and people forget about it.
me: i want to grow out my hair
bpd: you want to cut your hair
Nothing is going to change. Americans love their guns more than they love people and after Sandy Hook we decided that killing over 20 children was acceptable and not outrageous enough to make reasonable restrictions on guns. This is America, a country that has been around for 200 years, a superpower, a 1st world nation, and one of the wealthiest countries on the planet and we refuse to protect our own people. We respect guns more than we respect the lives of people.
What specific gun control measures would you propose and how would they directly and effectively make society safer?
Absolutely get rid of all AR-15′s and the like.
Intense background and criminal background checks and anything violent automatically disqualifies you.
Make getting a gun/gun permit more like getting a driver’s license:
permit to learn
includes an exam with 18 or more questions on the policies, laws, and etc of guns and gun ownership
if you get more than 8 questions incorrect you must retake it.
30 hours of practical experience at a gun range with a licensed teacher
Must take a 5 hour class on the dangers of guns and how to use them safely which will then yield you a certificate that grants you to take the practical exam and lasts for one year. If you don’t gain the license within the allotted year you must retake the class.
A practical exam with a licensed instructor who will grade you on various skills. If you pass you may be granted a permit on the weapon of your choice, the exams may differ on the type of firearm you want.
Follow the Japanese model where you must have two gun safes in different areas of the house, one to store the gun and one to store the bullets and you must provide the police with information on where those safes are.
No concealed carry and only handguns may be allowed to be out in public.
If transporting a weapon, it must be in the trunk of the vehicle, in a bag or some other case, safety on and unloaded and may not leave the vehicle until you are at the destination.
If you’re a hunter or some other gun hobbyist that requires a functional weapon other than a handgun then the gun must stay on the premises, whether that is a gun range or the Fish and Wildlife facility.
If you live in a rural area where police (and people, for that matter) are few and far between, something akin to a deer hunting rifle should provide plenty of protection from predators and poachers, you still have to follow the aforementioned steps.
This doesn’t cover everything but I think it’s a good place to start.
Can you show me evidence that this would directly and effectively create a safer society?
I have never laughed so hard at a gun law post. Like seriously, the evidence is in fucking reality. The proposed restrictions are just fucking logic.
A Muslim woman was sitting at a table with her 9-year-old daughter when a man later identified as Triceten Bickford emerged from a nearby alley shouting “white power,” anti-black racial slurs and “kill the police.” Bickford grabbed the woman by the neck and forced her head forward, restricting her breathing as he tried to remove her headscarf, police allege. The woman’s husband and a passer-by dragged Bickford off and restrained him until police arrived. Bickford spit in the men’s faces, threatened to kill them and arriving officers, tried to kick out the windows of a patrol car and bit an officer on the calf. (SOURCE)
This man committed hate crimes, bit a cop, threatened to kill cops, and was not only captured alive, HIS BAIL WAS SET AT $705.
SEVEN HUNDRED AND FIVE DOLLARS.
And you don’t see media types calling him a “thug” or “demon.”

This fucker is still alive. This is white privilege.
