1. ACLU: Ferguson police report on Michael Brown’s death violates law

    cyprith:

    Oh, and how about this:

    The two-page document, which the Ferguson Police Department released only after pressure from journalists and civil liberties advocates, is largely redacted or left blank. The most egregious omissions are the victim’s name and a description of the offense – the fatal shooting of Brown.

    “They are breaking the law,” said Tony Rothert, legal director of the ACLU of Missouri.

    Just a little heads up for aspiring public speakers out there!

    cuddly-morrigan:

    The gender neutral term for “ladies and gentleman” is “distinguished guests”. This has been around since at least the 60s, so no one is going to question your use of it.

    Please, please use this along with “ladies and gentlemen” if you aren’t entirely sure of the gender of your audience.

    Thank you!

     
  3. Breast forms available!

    Are you a young trans woman or AMAB non-binary person in Northern Ireland? Do you need breast forms?

    If so, we still have some left over from GenderJam NI's clothes swap. If you'd like them, please send me a message and I can arrange getting them to you. They're high quality, brand-new sets, and there's only a few left over, so get in touch soon!

    Unfortunately these are only available to people currently living in Northern Ireland, or the British Isles if you can cover the cost of postage.

    Please reblog this or let your trans lady friends know!

    Boooooooooost

Here’s a “life-hack” for you.Apparently concentrated Kool-Aid can be used as a pretty effective leather dye.I was making a drink while cutting the snaps off some new straps for my pauldrons and I got curious, so I tried it, thinking, “ok even if this works, it will just wash out.”Nope.It took the “dye” (undiluted) in about 3 seconds. After drying for about an hour and a half, it would not wash off in the hottest tap-water. It would not wash out after soaking for 30 minutes.It did not wash out until I BOILED it, and even then, only by a tiny bit and it gave it a weathered look that was kind of cool.Add some waterproofing and I’d wager it would survive even that.That rich red is only one application too.Plus it smells great, lol.So there you go, cheap, fruity smelling leather dye in all the colors Kool-Aid has to offer.

    The link is an article, with an option to listen to the audio. I’m not listening to the audio, but I read the article. Don’t let this story fade out, people.

Racism and ignorance clearly evident in our society, as experienced by my friend’s sister. This is what her potential dorm roommate, whom she had never met or talked to before, tweeted about her.
"Today I googled my last name and found this as one of the search results. Apparently, just by looking at my profile picture, I am Indian and I can barely speak english. This, my friends, is a prime example of racial profiling. I am an American citizen. I was born in Houston, Texas. My roots are not from India but from Africa. My parents are Algerian. I am Algerian American. English is my primary language and it is a struggle for me to speak my parent’s native tongue. My name is pronounced exactly as it is spelled. I wear a hijab (a head covering), and not a niqab ( a facial covering that excludes the eyes) though I do admire, respect, and find the beauty in all those who do choose to wear the niqab. But this girl is right, I probably would have had a heart attack living with a person who could not, and refused to, respect me and my beliefs. I can only thank God for an opening of a single room shortly after they assigned this roommate, way before I knew she had posted any of this. Alhamdullilah. I also thank God for being born in Houston, one of the most multicultural cities in the United States, and not experiencing racism like this everyday of my life. Sunday is my move in day and the start of my college career. This can be nothing but a good sign for the years to come, inshaAllah.  In conclusion, I urge everyone, please, don’t judge a person by their appearances. Racism exists in this nation because we continue to do so. We have to look beyond the covers of appearances and read the texts of their characters. Stand with me and ‪#‎stopracism‬.” -Roukaya Mabizari

this is so fucked up


Lol white girls got some nerve. After my first year I stopped rooming with white girls.Y’all messy and your hair gets on. Every. Fucking. Thing.My parents thought I was fucking a white dude I had so much blonde hair on my clothes.

1) the fact that people think the way this racist twitter-loser does utterly disgusts me, and the person who was discussed so fucking rudely here, deserves so, so, so much better. i hope she found a roommate who’s not a racist piece of garbage.2) re: what goddamazon said about white people’s hair getting on everything - holy shit you are so spot-on correct about that. i’m sort of sitting here with my jaw hanging open contemplating the phrase “i shed as much as my dog.” i share this epiphany in the hopes that it’ll give someone a laugh.

    for my fellow curvy babes who have long dreamed of a great high-waited, wide leg pant for work/play — i got these from forever 21 and i LOVE them!!! they’re way too long but getting them hemmed is only going to cost me $10 and i’d say $35 for the perfect fit is pretty worth it

    unfortunately it’s not available in plus size, but if anyone else is around a size 8/10 or smaller and has trouble finding high-waisted slacks that are comfortable, these are a really nice find

    just wanted to share a good, affordable find! once i get it back from the alterations place i’ll post pics!!! <3
