The Salvation Army Starts War.
Salvation Army says “Gays Need to Be Put to Death”. Christmas, it is the time of the year for holiday shopping, and also hearing the bell ringers for the Salvation Army collection donations. Those do…
tw murder, death, transmisogynist and cissexist violence
reminders of reasons not to support shitty bashy orgs like the salv army. also understanding that lots of folks (including me), get clothes etc. there because it’s what’s within our means / can afford; so things are always nuanced and complicated.
also, adding onto this article - the salvation army’s shelters (along with others & churches with similar anti queer and trans politics~) have and continue to deny shelter and services during the winter months to queer and trans people - and trans women of colour bear the largest brunt of this violence; people have literally frozen to death from exposure on the steps and in the doorways of these orgs, and it’s so so fucked.

Unarmed Black Man Shot At By NYPD Has Been Charged With Assault Because Bullets Hit Bystanders
Glenn Broadnax, a 35-year-old black man from Brooklyn, was unarmed on the night of September 14 when NYPD officers shot at him in the middle of Times Square, striking two bystanders.
Instead of apologizing, the New York Times reports that the city has charged Broadnax ”with assault, on the theory that he was responsible for bullet wounds suffered by two bystanders.”
Broadnax was emotionally disturbed and dodging cars in the middle of the street when officers say he reached into his pocket to grab what they believed was a weapon, prompting them to open fire. His lawyers says he was reaching for his wallet.
So, because the NYPD is made up of trigger happy, crappy marksmen who fire at unarmed black people with impunity, Broadnax might spend up to 25 years in prison on trumped up assault charges, which the Manhattan district attorney insisted on.
… Meanwhile, the two cops who did the shooting are on desk duty pending an investigation. If the past is any indication, that means they will be back on the streets in no time.
what the fucking fuck

Anonymous asked: Oh no, please don't tell me you're a white girl with dreads. That's considered to be racist and cultural appropriation.
Sweetheart, dreads have been around and used (culturally) for thousands of years, including by various germanic tribes, celts, AND scottish warriors (along with many others) of which genetically I am all of (among other things).
Please do not take this rudely, but it is 2013, almost 2014, having dreads is not meant to be and is not racist. This is why our society is never going to be fully open to anything, because there are so many people caught up on taking the SMALLEST things and turning them into a hate crime. Just because they can.
If anything, you are being racist for telling me JUST because I am white I cannot have dreads.
End of discussion.
