"The world’s 85 richest people have as much wealth as the world’s 3.5 billion poorest."
This statistic was recently released in United Nations report that uses Oxfam figures. It’s also a huge wake-up call for anyone who doesn’t consider income inequality a major issue in global politics. (via micdotcom)
“All the naysayers who were against marijuana legalization are eating crow right about now. Colorado’s weed sales just keep trending up, and with the sales of legal weed, they are improving their schools and reducing overall crime rates.”
WOW IT’S ALMOST LIKE IF YOU LEGALIZE WEED
PEOPLE WON’T DO BAD THINGS
TO GET WEED
If you don’t know about Amina or the topless jihads world wide today I suggest you get googling, Amina Tyler is a 19 year old woman who posted bare breasted photos with the slogan “My Body is My Own and Not the Source of Anyone’s Honor” on her chest. She was arrested and sentenced to “100 lashes” and being “stoned to death”. She went missing and in response FEMEN activists are staging bare cheated protests. This image displays a man kicking an activist protesting outside a mosque. WAKE UP. NUDITY IS NOT A CRIME.
the world is insane right now this is fucking insanity literally.
Shame on that man
Hm. So she deliberatly goes to a place that considers this not even a legal crime but a moral, ethical crime? A crime on one’s very soul?
And then she commits that crime. Very much on purpose. And with a considerable amount of spite at anyone that may happen to pass her.
No I don’t agree with the violence displayed.
But boy can I empathise with it.
See I can empathise (not sympathise) because I often feel these violent outrage whenever someone steps into my territory. When they come into a queer space, a trans space, a kink space. When they blunder into my fandoms, even. And they protest what I am - they protest my very identity. They tell me I’m wrong and that my morals and ethics are wrong.
I’m actually very much in favour of topless nudity being acceptable for all genders. But I can’t muster support when I see people like this and FEMEN doing it.
Protest your rights - but don’t impeach others rights while doing so.
Thank you ^
"There were no sex classes. No friendship classes. No classes on how to navigate a bureaucracy, build an organization, raise money, create a database, buy a house, love a child, spot a scam, talk someone out of suicide, or figure out what was important to me. Not knowing how to do these things is what messes people up in life, not whether they know algebra or can analyze literature."
