can we please acknowledge this ignorance

'90% of my audience is minorities', it's the same as saying 'I have a black friend, I'm not racist'

Trans women are not born babies — according to the media, at least. We’re born “men.”

This framing only sensationalizes the identities and experiences of trans individuals as nothing more than a hook to reel the audience into a world closely resembling that of a carnival freak show. This framing in itself highlights the physical changes undergone by trans people and ignores the fact that the people they’re referring to are genuine, lovable, normal individuals.

Referring to trans women as “men” from birth plays into themes of disgust and discomfort our culture foists upon trans bodies. We’re denied the innocence of youth so that we are more easily categorized as deviants. The mental image created is of a hairy, sweaty, hulking man — it makes us easier to hate, and it serves as a quick pivot point to the idea of our existence as cartoonishly masculine “men in dresses.” We need to push back on this blatant lie about our existence, this obvious smear on our humanity.

Just in case

I’m actually going to reblog a thing just because this is really important.
As someone who has epilepsy and used to have several grand mal seizures a day, I’d also like to add that “offer help” can range anywhere from keeping the person calm to explaining to them where they are and what they were doing to even just telling them they should sit and rest for a while longer (lack or coordination is common, and it can be hard to walk straight or see clearly).
It’s okay for them to take up to a half hour to fully regain their bearings and sort out what they were doing prior to the seizure. Just answer any questions calmly and be there for support.
If they come around and you start to panic or shake them or ask them what the heck is wrong with them they are going to freak out and panic too.
I cannot stress it enough that this is bad.
If someone has a seizure and they come out of it, please. please stay calm.They are likely disoriented and confused, even if it’s only for a minute or two, and you don’t want them panicking on top of that because they can have another seizure as a result.

IMPORTANT

This is great information to know! You never know when you might need to help save a life!

IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE HAS A SEIZURE CONDITION ASK THEM BEFORE IT BECOMES AN ISSUE HOW TO HANDLE IT!!
This is really great info for people who have never handled seizures, but not all of this is going to work in every setting. The only really universal tips here are : NEVER put anything in the mouth; time the seizure; do NOT hold down, and loosen tight clothing.
As I stated, this is good for an emergency, but if you able to talk to the person before there is an emergency, find out how their seizures should be handled.
And ALWAYS call 911 if a seizure lasts more than six minutes or the person begins to choke or have trouble breathing.

Call 000

i keep forgetting that 911 is localized. Basically, call the emergency number.

Also, make sure to move ANYTHING that they could bump into and hurt themselves on. Tables, chairs, whatever. But try to stay back once they really start to convulse, because their muscles are working at full strength with no control and you could get hurt while trying to assist them.

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill making California the first state that allows family members to ask a judge to remove firearms from a relative who appears to pose a threat.

Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, introduced Assembly Bill 2014 after a deadly rampage in May near the University of California, Santa Barbara that left six people dead and 13 injured from gunshots and stab wounds.

Supporters say it could help prevent future attacks like the one in Isla Vista, while opponents say it would erode gun rights.

Santa Barbara County sheriff’s deputies had visited the killer, 22-year-old community college student Elliot Rodger, weeks before the rampage after his parents raised concerns about his behavior. But deputies determined he was not a threat.

The legislation makes California the first state to let family members go directly to a judge to request a restraining order that would prohibit gun possession, at least temporarily. Law enforcement officers in Connecticut, Indiana and Texas already can seek a judge’s order allowing them to seize guns from people they deem to be a danger.

Skinner’s bill would extend that authority to family members.

A court hearing would be set within 14 days for firearm owners to argue that they are not a danger. A related bill also waiting action, SB505, seeks to encourage law enforcement to check gun purchase databases before conducting welfare checks.

California has been ON IT with these new bills lately. The yes-means-yes consent bill, and now this? Fuck yeah California.

Police shoot teenage special-needs girl within 20 seconds of arriving to ‘help’

On June 3rd, 2014, the Serrano family was having difficulty with a young female family member who suffers from a mental illness and depression. Yanira Serrano-Garcia, 18, had apparently gone off of her medication and became agitated and hard to control.
“[Yanira] wanted to be normal. She wanted to stop taking her medication, and I get it. Sometimes when my feet hurt I just want to be normal. I don’t want to take pills. I get her…all we want is justice,” said a friend of Yanira’s during a community march. 
“Sadly, they mistook her for something she didn’t do, and a cop decided to get his gun out when he could have gotten out his taser, his pepper spray,” she said.
“She has special needs and we just want answers,” said Yanira’s brother, Tiny Serrano. “Who are we supposed to call now when we need help when who is supposed to help us is killing our kids?”


I feel like I reblog this kind of stuff every single day… Same story, different names. And police always use the same fucking excuses because they’re trained in how to loophole the law. It’s what they do for a fucking living.

Last Night in Ferguson (9.28-9.29): Last night’s protest was one of the in Ferguson this month, proving once again that the residents of Ferguson/STL County are some of the most resilient and inspiring in all the land. The police were literally holding peaceful protesters hostage late into the night (folks who were complying with all police requests) so they could negotiate with the remaining folks to leave, but the protesters didn’t back down. Eventually all arrestees were released, and many plan to be back out there tonight.

Injustice in Ferguson continues, but despite it, community now thrives too. This is still happening. Are you still paying attention? #staywoke #farfromover
