Remember: if you feel ugly, who is benefiting from that? Who profits off of your belief that you need to alter your appearance?

Accepting yourself as you are is a radical act. Love you all.

Dallas PD asked for the public to submit footage to identify protestors so k-pop stans are flooding them with k-pop videos.

fighting with people on social media and calling it activism

Idk how to explain to binary trans people that transphobes will always hate them. It doesn't matter how much they punch down on genderqueers and it doesn't matter how much effort they put into passing.

*Transphobes will always hate us.*

Intentional Misinformation - MN protests 

It's very womanly of them (lmao) but not feminist at all. I mean, cis women routinely judge themselves and each other like this too. The stakes are just a lot higher for trans women because if they fail to perform femininity then the entire legitimacy of their gender comes under fire.

Examples: "you'll never pass if you don't do your eyebrows :/"
"Idk she doesn't wear make up every day so she's just kind of blah"
"Remember, if you wish you had big titties, YOU ARE VALID. uwu" (as though trans women who ARE performing feminity are being attacked...)

A lot of trans women have regressed backwards in feminism to the point where the worst of them believe you're not a Legitimate Woman if you're not performing feminity to the highest degree.

The police at Flint have defected.

They, under order of their chief, have laid down their weapons and taken off their helmets and have joined in protesting and marching.

i built a tool for quickly scrubbing metadata from images and selectively painting / blurring faces and identifiable features. it runs on a phone or computer directly in the browser, and doesn't send info anywhere:

Nobody needs allies and nobody needs social justice warriors who just sit on their ass & criticize. go help someone or at least shut up

Big hmmmm at the media framing protests in UK cities as being specifically against Minneapolis police and not the racist cops here

Internet Archive is asking folks to upload their protest footage. But the guy doing so has also made their policy clear when asked.

“When anything goes on the archive it is instantly downloadable to the world. That's baked into the ethic and that's what we are.” -his tweet

That means no warrant needed. Independent white supremacist groups can get it too.

This is an incredibly irresponsible ask/policy. Only put up something you would hand-deliver to your local cops. So. I mean. Don’t.

Johnson, a 18-year-old Liberian student activist, who survived the Ebola pandemic. “100,000 people are dead, cities are burning, and the country hasn’t had a day of mourning? Lives don’t matter, especially not black lives. It’s like they’re living in a failing state.” - 7/7

We need a term stronger than bootlicker for people that blame a child for being at a protest for getting maced and not the fucking pig that maced a god damn kid. At that point I just don't think bootlicker cuts it anymore.

it’s incredible to me that every Liberal still firmly believes they’re just one scorching hot “gotcha” moment away from defeating fascism

like I do not know at this point how to convince them that not only do fascists not care if they’re contradictory but that it literally does not fucking matter

“well they said they only like good things but here they doing bad things, checkmate!! 🍵🐸💅” it’s not a fucking high school debate Jeremy the fascists are killing people you dumb fuck
