this photo makes me feel like someone traveled to an alternate dimension and brought back something that shouldnt exist
If you are a man who thinks it’s funny to make misogynist jokes purely to make your female friends uncomfortable/angry, then you are a misogynist. It is not “just a joke.” You literally are finding humor in the discomfort and dehumanization of women. You are not helping, you are not making satire. You are just being misogynist.
Yes, this includes you gay men.
Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)
The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover
KEEP POSTING I NEED TO KNOW! DONT STOP POSTING ABOUT THIS. IT IS NOT OVER!
"The gays" I say with a dry monotone voice completely ignoring my own very apparent homosexuality

France’s politicians and community leaders have criticised the “intolerable” violence against Paris’ Jewish community, after a pro-Palestinian rally led to the vandalizing and looting of Jewish businesses and the burning of cars. It is the third time in a week where pro-Palestinian activists have clashed with the city’s Jewish residents. On Sunday, locals reported chats of “Gas the Jews” and “Kill the Jews”, as rioters attacked businesses in the Sarcelles district, known as “little Jerusalem”.
Manuel Valls, France’s primeministersaid: “What happened in Sarcelles is intolerable. An attack on a synagogue and on a kosher shop is simply anti-Semitism. Nothing in France can justify this violence.”
Also from the article —
The government had banned a demonstration planned in Paris for Saturday, but posters were seen around the area which said “Come equipped with hammers, fire extinguishers and batons” and promised a “raid on the Jewish district”.
France has around half a million Jews, the biggest population in Europe, and around five million Muslims.
The Society for the Protection of the Jewish Community’s figures suggest that anti-Jewish violence is seven times higher than in the 1990s, and 40% of racist violence is against Jews, despite them making up just 1% of the population.
In March 2012, a shooting spree by Mohammed Merah in the south of France left three French soldiers, three Jewish schoolchildren and a rabbi dead. The gunman claimed a connection to al Qaeda.
More than a thousand Jews have made aliyah (the term used when Jews immigrate to Israel) in the past 10 days, according to the Israeli government.
"I came because of anti-Semitism,” said teary-eyed Veronique Rivka Buzaglo, one of 430 immigrants who arrived from France the day before.
this happened 2 months ago and i had no idea until today. please reblog this, its so important that people talk about antisemitism and dont just sweep it under the rug
CAN I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE.
I am a Canadian citizen.

I am a university student.
I am reminded every day about the issues across the globe.
And these issues are IMPORTANT.
THAT. BEING. SAID.
WE HAVE ISSUES HAPPENING RIGHT HERE AT HOME.
And they are NOT being talked about.
We have OVER 1200 Native American women who have disappeared or been murdered in the last 3 decades.
THESE WOMEN ARE ONLY GETTING A SMALL TEXT BOX AT THE BOTTOM OF OUR 24 HOUR NEWS STATION.
A task force has NOT YET been assembled.
THESE WOMEN ARE IMPORTANT.
THEIR LIVES MATTER.
Why are we not talking about this.
I think I know the reason.
This is all the information I know at the moment.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t start the conversation.
TALK TO EACH OTHER ABOUT THIS.
TALK TO YOUR FRIENDS.
ASK YOUR TEACHERS.
ASK YOUR PROFESSORS.
ASK IN HISTORY, POLITICS, CIVICS, LAW CLASS.
GET THE CONVERSATION GOING.
GET UPSET. BE CONSTRUCTIVE.
DON’T LET THIS ISSUE BECOME A FOOT NOTE IN A HISTORY BOOK BECAUSE I DON’T THINK IT’S EVEN GOING TO GET THAT.
DESPITE OUR CLAIMS, we are NOT a perfect country and I am TIRED of pretending we are.
We do not have a task force.
The Conservative government has failed to call for a national inquiry.
The UNITED NATIONS has CALLED UPON CANADA TO ACT.
Stephen Harper has avoided this issue.
This can NOT continue.
