What’s in store for me in the direction I don’t take?

Holy mother fuck
Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.
UNCHECKED! No state or federal intervention at all!
You telling me NOBODY in this country has the authority to put an end to this?
Nobody has the power to dismantle this oppressive police force who has consistently violated the civil rights of these Black people publicly for an entire month?
Like, why the fuck is this STILL going on?
WHY has everybody harboring Darren Wilson not also been brought up on fucking charges?

The stunning Nasir al-mulk Mosque hides a gorgeous secret between the walls of its fairly traditional exterior: stepping inside is like walking into a kaleidoscope of colors. Every day, the rays of the early morning sun shine through colorful stained-glass windows, transforming the halls into a dazzling wonderland of rich hues, patterns, and light that play on the floor of the mosque.
I can never get over that this is a real place.
"what’s the most difficult thing about playing a gay character"
what are they expecting the actor to say?????? i’T S SO HARd it hurts my bIG HETerOSEXUal EGO i have to think about sTRAIGHT thoughts for days after just to get the gaY OUT of mY little HETERO head
for the last fucking time representation does not mean shoving in a queer romance. it means acknowledging we fucking exist. it means a girl saying she likes girls. it means a character doing something as simple as checking out their same gender. you don’t have to be in a relationship to be recognized as queer. representation is not and never has been about ‘ships.’ it’s about normality. it’s about existing for a purpose other than a punchline or a god damned ship
After countless amounts of asks telling me the links on my previous post no longer work (thank you for telling me!) it seems like prime time to revamp my original post about the asterisk w/ posts that are hopefully accessible. Please feel free to share and save this new list with people!
(note: i’m trying to only include the opinions of trans women and other CAMAB/DMAB trans people, considering these are the people most affected by the asterisk)
- discussion about the asterisk, not to be added on to if you aren’t a trans woman or other CAMAB trans
- short explanation about the transmisogyny behind the asterisk from a trans woman
- about why the asterisk is basically worthless and doesn’t live up to the inclusiveness it promises
- more on the lack of inclusiveness in the asterisk
seriously there are more if you google “why the asterisk in trans is bad” but i’m unsure if it’s my place to add posts from CAFAB/DFAB trans people on to this issue so i’ll leave you with this.
again, feel free to add your own links, let me know if one of my links is bad or if my source is bad, etc. thanks!
