FACE OF DISBELIEF: Qatari writer and film-maker, Sophia al-Maria (right) exhibits video, Cinderazahd: For Your Eyes Only, depicting female friends and relatives preparing for a family wedding without their hijabs or veils. 
Al-Maria asked for the video to be viewed only by women, as it was filmed in a female-only area of the home. 
White guy (left) complains to Human Rights Commission on basis of gender discrimination. Paul Young, 60, said it was deeply offensive that the exhibit could be allowed to blatantly discriminate against men.
Are you kidding me? Her expression here perfectly captures my current feelings.
Public reminder: It is NOT your basic human right to view women’s bodies. Their consent needs to be given. Even in a public forum. That is all.



Black teen shot and killed in mostly white gated community he lived in while going to a convenience store to get snacks by a Neighborhood Watch official who said he looked suspicious

Via Global Grind: “17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by a Neighborhood Watch captain inside his own gated Orlando, Florida community where he was living with his father, stepmother and little brother, according to the family’s lawyer. Martin was shot after returning home from a local convenience store, where he bought snacks including Skittles candy requested by his 13-year-old brother, Chad.

According to the family’s lawyer Ben Crump, the family is calling for the Watch captain’s arrest, saying Martin was “on his way home and a Neighborhood Watch loose cannon shot and killed him”…”.* Was the teen singled out and shot because he was black in a white neighborhood? Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur discuss if race was involved on The Young Turks.

HE HAS A NAME: Trayvon Martin, Shot & Killed By His Own Neighborhood Watch (DETAILS)

I know Tumblr doesn’t like hearing about this but when people talk about “white privilege,” part of what is meant is stuff like the ability to exist beyond the confines of your home without the fear of being killed due to your race or ethnicity.

I do not want Trey Martin’s death to be in vain. We cannot let that happen!

Instead of 'Kony(e) 2012', we should start 'George Zimmerman 2012' →



Here’s another sensational cause for Tumblr to support.

Although, this time, we can hopefully attempt to enact this in a much simpler and “closer to home” manner.

From the petition:

Prosecute the murderer of 17 year old Trayvon Martin


I just signed the following petition addressed to: Florida’s 18th District State Attorney Norman Wolfinger.

Prosecute the murderer of Trayvon Martin

Trayvon Martin was only 17 years old when he was gunned down by the Neighborhood Watch captain George Zimmerman. All Trayvon did was go to the store to get his brother some Skittles. Zimmerman saw an unfamiliar young black teen in his gated community and took it on himself to confront him and ultimately kill him. Zimmerman was not arrested and remains free. Not only is the State’s Attorney Norman Wolfinger not prosecuting, he is withholding evidence the family of Trayvon is demanding. Let him know that child killers need to be prosecuted. If he will not do his job he should resign or be fired!

"The lie was that somehow she was asking that taxpayers pay for contraception. The policy is that in basic insurance policies, contraception — contraceptive services, birth control, should be included. … Even in his sort of quasi-apology last night, Mr. Limbaugh continued that falsehood, and it needs to be challenged."
Obama adviser David Axelrod • Not accepting Rush Limbaugh’s apology to Sandra Fluke and pointing out that the apology continued to sell what Axelrod described as a falsehood. Rush would probably respond back to this by saying the government should have no role in funding “basic insurance policies.” But really, does this argument have to keep going? (via shortformblog)

Mitt Romney or Mr. Burns?

too good
"So Miss Fluke, and the rest of you Feminazis, here’s the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex. We want something for it. We want you post the videos online so we can all watch."

Rush Limbaugh (via U.S. News - Limbaugh: Contraception advocate should post online sex videos)

I just feel sick. I don’t even know what else to say to this shit.

My dad just came in and told me about this fuckery and I went momentarily blind with rage.  I actually may just need new glasses, but the blurriness of my vision grew exponentially upon hearing this and Jesus, forgive me, but I wish this man would just drown in a sea of piss.

Some people take this asshole seriously and find nothing problematic about that statement. Just let that sink in for a minute.

No no no and NO! Stop this stupid ass question!


Please sign this petition to have this horrid image removed.
The girl in the photo was lied to about the nature of this photo and was told “it is just for a Japanese fashion photoshoot”

This movie also displays the lolita image as pedophilia related. This is an image that lolita have worked hard to dispel for years.
“The Lolita community has been misunderstood for years, usually mislead by the title of Vladimir Navokov’s novel “Lolita”. The community has been fighting really hard to make people understand that, no matter the personal idea of what Lolita is (a fashion, a lifestyle, an aesthetics), it is NOT about sexualising women, but completely the opposite, it is about women feeling comfortable with themselves in clothes that make them feel pretty and that do not relate with attracting men. Moreover, Lolita is not about ageplay. It does not try to make young women look like little girls, hence it’s not focused on attracting pedophiles. It might make the girls look a bit childish depending on the style, but that is not the point for a lolita.
With the promotional poster in which a girl is shown wearing Lolita clothes, her expression being overtly provocative and teasing, the productor and director are causing a massive harm to the Lolita community, leading people who does not know the movement to think that it’s about sex and ruining the hard work that thousands of girls have done during years. Due to this, we ask for the removal of the poster plus a formal apology from both of them.”
