lgbt people may not be counted as citizens in 2020

every ten years, the U.S. government is required to collect census data on all of its citizens. the obama administration began a government-wide effort in 2015 to determine how to best collect needed info on LGBT citizens, with the purpose of including questions to help gather this data on the next census survey.

now, the trump administration has reversed this effort and decided to drop all questions regarding sexual orientation and gender identity from the upcoming 2020 U.S. census. this will leave government agencies and policymakers in the dark as to how to best allocate resources to serve lgbt citizens.

105 members of congress didn’t want to leave this matter to administrative whim, so they co-sponsored the LGBT Data Inclusion Act. but the act can’t become law unless congress holds a hearing to review the bill.

right now, the bill is stalled in both the House and Senate. your voice can help move congress to action.

sign the petition. it takes 1 minute to sign. dont let trump pretend we dont exist.

Currently, LGBTQ Americans won't be counted on the US Census

The 2020 census may not count LGBTQ Americans. Every ten years, the U.S. Government is required to collect census data on all of its citizens. The Obama administration began a government-wide effort in 2015 to determine how to best collect needed info on LGBTQ citizens, with the purpose of including questions to help gather this data on the next census survey.  

Now, the Trump administration has reversed this effort and decided to drop all questions regarding sexual orientation and gender identity from the upcoming 2020 U.S. Census. This will leave government agencies and policymakers in the dark as to how to best allocate resources to serve these citizens. If you think LGBTQ Americans should be counted, add your name to this petition.

105 members of Congress didn’t want to leave this matter to Administrative whim, so they co-sponsored the LGBT Data Inclusion Act. But the Act can’t become law unless Congress holds a hearing to review the bill.

Right now, the bill is stalled in both the House and Senate. Your voice can help move Congress to action.

Please sign and share this petition calling on Congress to give the LGBT Data Inclusion Act a fair hearing today. LGBTQ Americans can’t wait another decade to be counted.

Hello and Hap'piraki!

I hope the news of a new Mod of askaceattorney wasn’t too much of a shock, because as of today, there will be two!

That’s right!  I am the second new Mod, who will be working alongside the new Mod (as well as the previous Mod) to keep the flow of letters going from curious askers to quirky characters, and back. To avoid any confusion, you can refer to me as the “Co-Mod” (or the “commode” if you’re feeling particularly jokey).

As with the Modthorne, I’m very honored to be a part of this show, as well as extremely excited!  (Seriously, I slept for a grand total of zero hours last night.)  My hope is that together we’ll be able to make it just as entertaining, hilarious, and thought-provoking as it has been up until now.  We’ll do our best to be as authentic as we can, but we won’t be revealing exactly who is writing what – it’ll be up to you to try and tell us apart.

So, a few quick things about me:

  • I’m a lover of music, art, and creative writing (which is a big part of why I love the Ace Attorney series).  If you’re interested in seeing what I’ve created so far (including Ace Attorney fan art, among other things), check out my main blog at imnobodyuknow. However, please keep in mind I won’t be answering questions related to this blog from there.
  • I’ve been an Ace Attorney fan for a few years now, and a fan of video games in general for much longer.  Questions on the topic will be welcomed!
  • I’m a bit of a nut when it comes to humor, as you can probably tell from what you’ve read so far.

So, in conclusion, if it pleases the court, I’d like to thank everyone here for keeping the blog going with your questions, compliments, jeers, etc., and I hope we’ll make this an Ace Attorney experience to remember!

Also, I’m kind of new to this, so…go easy on me, all right?

See you ‘round!

Why exactly do you not like the Obama administration? No hate, cos I find your political worldview really interesting :-) just curious because I'm english, and not really that knowledgeable on American politics. But Obama seemed cool and english people generally liked him so idk :-/

Where do I even begin? The constant unconstitutional executive overreach. The push for restrictions on second amendment rights. The refusal to acknowledge the real issues of Islamic terrorism. The fact that he was given a Nobel peace prize before doing anything and then spent eight years pouring kerosene on the fire that is the conflict in the Middle East. The unnecessary and irrelevant involvement on social issues that were none of his business. The fact that he can still be considered “pretty cool” while drone striking his own citizens for maybe possibly being terrorists.

Mann Co. Dance

So Zazzles45 sent me this cool idea for a dancing headcanon, and I’ve also been getting a lot of requests to do another fic, so I thought I’d combine the two to create what you are hopefully about to read. (A/N to Zazzles45: I 

Because of some recent, and most likely illegal, battles going on in Tuefort, the citizens have begun to complain about the Mercs and Mann Co. The Administrator obviously can’t have this getting in the way of her master plan, so she puts on a charity dance. The two teams are forced to learn how to dance together, which causes a lot of friction… especially when a few of the team members seem to get too close with their enemies…

Prompt: An older one from castlefanficprompts. AU S1 “why don’t you shut up and put your mouth to better use” so he does.  M rating.

She’s going to kill him.  Him and his stupid theories, him and his constant questions, him and his cocky grin and his blue eyes and his broad shoulders and the way he crowds in close to her that turns her on more than she will ever, ever admit.

anonymous asked:

What does a producer of Teen Wolf actually do? Like they can change things they dont like? Example: Evil Producer: "Here is the part we graphically murder Liam and hack his body-" Tyler Posey the Good Producer: "No, instead we'll have Scott give him a bath and loads of hugs, kill this person instead because *States reasons* - " Is it something like that?

Hey there Nonnie! Like you, I think a lot of us are wondering what it means for the show now that Posey has been granted with a Producer title. So what better time to address this question then on day one of Teen Wolf Season 5 right?!

Ok so here’s what we know. Posey is now a Co-Producer.

The important thing to remember is that a co-producers’ responsibilities vary enormously depending on which type of Co-producer they are - though they always work under the direction of the Producer. Which means, for better or for worse, Posey can’t actually go in and lord his new powers over the entire production team. The buck will always stop at Jeff Davis.

This doesn’t really tell us what specific duties he will be taking on though. So I did a little more research to see if I could uncover more information.

  • Because the Co-Producer title “varies so greatly sometimes the title connotes responsibility and at other times it is largely honorific” (x). 
  • Translation: it’s hard for us to say how many new duties Posey will be given this year, but they can vary from creative, financial, technological to administrative (x).
  • In general co-producers need to possess “a thorough working knowledge of the creative and business processes of filmmaking, as well as an awareness of the current markets for different styles and genres of film” (x).
  • Wikipedia classifies them as “a writer on the show who may not have written the episode, but contributed significantly through table reads or revisions”.
  • And I’ve frequently seen it said that they may be “on location everyday overseeing the day to day of filming and keeping on top of the film’s budget” (x).

So basically, taking all of this in, I suspect that Posey will be using this year to learn about more of the technical aspects of filming - as well as maybe giving creative feedback on the show at large, rather than just say his character or a scene he’s in. Again though, a lot of this is speculation! It’s hard to actually know how hands on he’s going to be (or how hands on they will let him be) but it does suggest that he’s investing more into the show and will have a part to play in its production!

Blind Date!
{{ Open to all! }}

Oswald gently strummed his fingers against the table top of the little diner he resided in, his gaze set on his hands as a multitude of anxious thoughts ran through his mind. The medic had been here for a blind date of all things, all thanks to a ‘gentle’ push from his blonde, Russian coworker.

He wasn’t one to so eagerly jump into the dating circle and actually be willing to participate in events such as these. It was just making him more and more nervous by the second. Oswald always thought love blossomed naturally between people (he was a hopeless romantic! He couldn’t help himself!) but he supposed it couldn’t hurt to give fate a gentle nudge forward every now and again.

So now here he sat in a booth by himself, wearing casual clothes consisting of a deep blue button up shirt with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows, black pants, and a pair of saddle shoes to pull it all together.

Introduction Time

Hello, hello! Welcome to our new blog, attack-on-fanfic. Basically, my co-administrator (Admin S) and I were inspired by the snk positivity project and created this blog to acknowledge the few, the brave, and the bold–the writers of Attack on Titan fanfiction.

Writing is a really difficult task, whether it’s getting through the actual writing process, mustering up the courage to post your writing on a public forum, or maintaining self-security when you feel as though you’re not as acknowledged as other writers. That’s why we’re here. We want to honor those of you who do this on the regular (or not-so-regular), and bridge the gap between writers and admirers alike.

Generally, submissions will be kept anonymous, short, and sweet, in order to fit the following template:

For information regarding what submissions should look like and how to go about submitting your compliments, please check out our Rules and FAQ pages. In addition, we will be posting any fanfiction that submissions mention on our Library page, which is organized by pairing.

We hope to hear from you soon!

–Admin A
