Members of Congress are living off food stamps for a week to protest Republican cuts. It’s a challenge for them, but GOP cuts would hurt millions of everyday Americans.
Why does this not have more publicity. This needs it!
Signal boosting this A) because it deserves to be seen by more people, and b) because I appreciate some members of Congress are actually willing to see what it’s like living on food stamps in order to make their point about how horrifying cutting food stamps would be.
News flash, regressives: people on food stamps do not load up on Snickers bars and filet mignon. They’re limited in what they can buy, and oftentimes, it’s not enough to get by on. Go on thinking these are entitlements that let minorities live lives of luxury, comfortable in the knowledge that you’ll never go hungry.
You privileged, elitist pricks.
my school put me in charge of the posters for LGBTQ acceptance and i kind of just
great job, you just alienated every LGBTQ kid in your school who doesn’t give a crap about your shitty fandoms just so you could make a fucking tumblr post
hope you feel proud of yourself for indulging in your fandom rather than actually making posters that everyone rather than a select few people will actually understand!
No. Stop. Stop insulting someone’s efforts to aid the LGBTQ community. Shut your fucking mouth and think for a minute.
When I was in high school, I was the president of our Gay-Straight Alliance. We tried everything to get new members and to gain support for years, but even in my senior year, we were still referred to “the gay club” and received no support from the school whatsoever.
To run a school club, you need support.
Harry Potter happens to be an extremely popular series. Pitch Perfect as well. Every time my club advertised, we would try to include everyone, suggesting that people visit, maybe even once. But by using popular media like that, you not only emphasize your point in a way people will enjoy, you do it in a way people will understand.
In no way is this a form of alienation. Not at all. You’re not saying “If you don’t like this fandom, you can’t join our club.”
FOR THE LOVE OF CHEESE, THEY’RE SAYING “DON’T BE AN ASSHAT BY NOT ACCEPTING PEOPLE WHO ARE DIFFERENT.”
So please, refrain from demonizing someone who was doing all they can to support the LGBTQ community.
NASA has confirmed the discovery of a real-universe analogue of Gallifrey, the home planet of the Time Lords in Doctor Who.
According to a recent article, NASA came across what it calls a “transiting circumbinary multi-planet system” – in layman’s speak, “two worlds orbiting two suns” – using its Kepler planet-hunting telescope, and the Register likens to “Doctor Who’s Time Lord homeworld, Gallifrey.”
The new system, which has been named Kepler 47, has two stars circling each other every 7.5 days. One of them is similar in size to our sun, whereas the other is approximately one third its size.
Doctor Who fans have started a petition to rename the newly discovered planet, named “HD 106906 b” to Gallifrey in honour of the show.
This is my son, Chester, who is nearly 4. He was invited to his friend Chloe’s birthday party today, the theme was prince and princesses. He asked if he could go as Sleeping Beauty, so I bought him a dress and put a cute little clip in his hair.
We arrived at the party to the following comments from the adults present:
“Oh that is just cruel.”
"Why did you make him wear a dress?"
"Poor little man, what’s your mummy playing at?"
"He’s going to hate you when he grows up."
"No way I’d let my son dress like a girl."
The fact is, Chester is almost completely gender neutral. I let him wear what he wants, be it boys or girls clothes, and he plays with whatever toys he likes. This usually involves him holding tea parties while wearing his pink Minnie Mouse top, jeans and a tiara. The guests are more often than not a mixture of Winnie The Pooh characters, dinosaurs, Barbie, Dora and solders, and they’re usually transported in his favorite fire engine.
When my husband arrived at the party later on, he was subjected to endless ridicule from the other dad’s present about how I must keep his balls in my back pocket because otherwise he would have put his foot down and not allowed Chester out like that. Oh, and by the way, our other son dressed as Ariel. When my husband pointed out that the boys were happy, and the mother of the birthday child made a point of saying how wonderful she thought it was that we allowed them freedom of choice and expression, they then stopped talking about it to our faces and started muttering about us behind our backs.
Interestingly enough, not a single child said a word about their choice of costumes, other than to compliment Chester on his new dress.
so my sister had homecoming last weekend and all the guys in her group secretly decided on undercover superhero identities and wore the corresponding colors to match the shirts underneath and revealed them during this picture and it was perfect.
Who’s your first Doctor? Nine.I can feel it. The turn of the Earth. The ground beneath our feet is spinning at 1,000 miles an hour and the entire planet is hurtling around the sun at 67,000 miles an hour. And I can feel it: we’re falling through space, you and me, clinging to the skin of this tiny little world, and if we let go… That’s who I am.
