I just signed a petition to The Arkansas State House, The Arkansas State Senate, and Governor Asa Hutchinson: HB 1228 is designed to discriminate against LGBT individuals under the guise of protecting religious freedoms.

PLEASE SPREAD THIS

Arkansas Senate has passed the bill HB 1228 and is just awaiting Asa Hutchinson’s signature (which he stated last week that if it passed to his desk he would sign it). This bill is incredibly dangerous for the LBGTQ community which is already extremely unprotected in Arkansas due to another bill that was passed last month prohibiting the protection for the LGBTQ under Arkansas law. So pretty much what this means is it’s open season for this community in Arkansas and HB 1228 is only going to make it easier for people to discriminate under the guise of religious freedom. 

Multiple big name companies, the Mayor, multiple celebrities and the police cheif have spoken against this bill. Even Wal-mart, a hella conservative company has spoken against this bill and has urged Asa Hutchinson to veto the bill. 

Please sign this, reblog this, post this link on your facebook, twitter, instagram, etc. Please, sign this and add to the voice how terrible this bill is, which is not only harmful to the LGBTQ community but also the economy in Arkansas due to the boycotting that many businesses have threatened to do which will hurt the already struggling job market in Arkansas and add to the poverty that is a major problem. 

Please, just spread the word. 

Hey, Indiana, what does “religious liberty” have to do with serving gay people food?

What, when you die is God going to be, like, “Well, I would let you into Heaven, but you served a gay guy a cheeseburger once, so it’s off to Hell you go”?

I don’t think God is as petty as that.

15 Movies That Aren’t About Straight Thin White People That You Need To See

There are few things more depressing than trying to think of movies about young women who aren’t white. It’s also depressing trying to think of movies about young women who aren’t straight. Oh, and when you try to think of movies starring women who are plus-sized? Ha! Good luck with coming up with more than a handful, if that much.

Despite the fact that there are so many different kinds of girls out there–black, brown, queer, fat, etc–the media really hasn’t caught up, especially the movie industry. Seriously, we have a larger chance of seeing vampire girls than seeing a gay Asian chick. I don’t know, but I’m pretty sure there are more gay Asian chicks than vampires. What gives? Er, okay, the answer is racism but anyway…

There might be a huge lack of diversity in some of your favorite movies, but there are still some great films out there that actually represent the diversity of young women’s experiences. Check out these 15 movies that aren’t about straight, thin white people and add some new favorites to your list.
