demanding justice

Those of you who can afford to buy organic, or even just buy fresh produce: please do. The more healthy food we buy, the more in demand it becomes, the cheaper it will be.
The cheaper it is, the more people in poverty will be able to afford healthy food, the more kids won’t grow up obese, the more adults won’t be trapped in a cycle.

Every time you buy something, you cast a vote for it to be in supply, to be produced more, to be cheaper.

Remember that.

wait trans marco is canon??????

Essentially. They haven’t said the word “transgender” and may or may not ever be allowed to, but in yesterday’s episode “Heinous,” Marco is essentially ‘outed’ to her parents as Miss Heinous comes to her house and explains that Princess Marco started an uprising in St. Olga’s, and demands justice. Marco is consistently gendered as female throughout the episode by everyone but her parents, even in the beginning when she’s not in the princess getup (Heinous actually compliments her ‘super cute new haircut.’) 

It’s then confirmed that Marco has been continuing to inspire wayward princesses to resist their oppressors as Princess Marco, and has willfully encouraged and known about this and maintained this persona without her parents’ or Star’s knowledge, and she refers to herself as “Ya girl Marco” happily before being reminded about Heinous’s existence. After the episode ends and everyone is safe, Marco, her family, and Star have a game night, and Marco says something like, “Can I stay in the dress?”

The entire episode is also peppered with coming-out double entendres, where Marco’s parents say things like “Is there anything else we should know?” “I’m not sure we should be mad,” etc., and then afterwards it being implied they were talking about their child inciting the rebellion in St. O’s, and aren’t paying attention to the Princess thing.

Heinous isn’t in the Season 2 finale but still has some cliffhangers related to her plotline so Marco will most likely start being gendered as female in regular, non-St. O’s related episodes after some more plot with her happens in season 3, for now she’s still mostly closeted.

tl;dr Marco has been secretly presenting as female part-time since halfway through Season 1 and is undeniably coded as a closeted trans girl at this point, will almost certainly properly transition over the course of Season 3. 

Photos of Celebrities at Women’s Marches Around the World

One day after Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president, protestors took to the streets of Washington, D.C. — and other cities around the world — in opposition of the reality star’s policies not just on women’s rights but human rights. While celebrities stayed away from the inauguration, they came out in droves for the Women’s Marches with Amy Schumer, Charlize Theron, Scarlett Johansson, Katy Perry, Amy Poehler, Chelsea Handler, Madonna, Lena Dunham, America Ferrera, and Ashley Judd among those lending their voices to the cause. And, yes, many of them rocked pink pussy hats.

Fears of 'riots in the streets' as anger over Grenfell Tower tragedy rises
Local councillor Eartha Pond said that if local authority doesn't act quickly, civil unrest could erupt after a string of failures
By Scarlet Howes

Anger over the Grenfell Tower disaster could lead to riots on the streets, it has been claimed.

The horrific fire, which has left at least 30 people dead, has left the local community angry and frustrated.

Politicians including Sadiq Khan have been heckled at the scene and locals even shouted “where are you going?” as the Queen and Prince William left the site today.

And hundreds of people are expected to attend a ‘justice’ rally in central London tonight.

Now, a local councillor has warned there could be “unrest in the streets” if council chiefs don’t step in.

Eartha Pond said that if local authority doesn’t act quickly, civil unrest could erupt.

Ms Pond, who works as an assistant vice principle in Brent and a councillor at nearby Queens Park Community Council, said: “If the council don’t step up to the plate there will be unrest in the streets; it’s that serious.

"People are so angry and frustrated. No-one from the council has been down here.

"It’s an appalling lack of response.”

More than 1,800 people are said to be planning to attend a rally in Westminster tonight to demand 'justice’ for Grenfell victims.

A Facebook event, 'Justice for Grenfell!’, has been listed as taking place at 6pm outside the Department for Communities and Local Government.

Reporting what everyone’s thinking. Don’t see how people’s anger at not knowing what has happened to their friends and family and being left without a home can be contained for much longer. 

DWTS 24...Now, look here, world.

Don’t get me wrong, Rashad was very good…but baby girl was fucking it UP and slaying the game for the whole season and she was robbed, and I just can’t say nothing, man. I get that it’s about the viewers voting for who they want to win, but that was about sports versus music entirely, because if it comes down to skill, consistency, and performance quality, the MBT really should’ve gone to Normani, unquestionably. 😒

Newcomers Pt2

Admiral Polts Personal journal.

It’s been about a week since the humans arrived and they now make up one third of our cerw, they have settled in well, almost too well as they have made this fleet and it’s ships their own. I have been doing research on them and although the reports are conflicting and sketchy they do all say that humans will change their environment to make it more suitable to them. Which is why the unused cargo hold is now something called a “puppy pen” and they are holding nightly events where they gather and play games about exploring a dungeon. They are also oddly easy to get along with, they take almost no offence when insults are thrown at them and if anything speak worse to one another. Their commander Captain Clerk assures me this is all natural that humans bring their home with them but will try to keep from taking over too much of the fleet.

So far the only race that has any problem with them are the Benemar, but the Humans have not risen to any challenge by them, not sure how long that will last.

On a side note I have orderd the fleet not to eat or drink the humans food, it.s just plain poisonous and how they manage to digest it is beyond me!!.

A number of humans were in the canteen eating a delicacy called “curry” a number of the other alien crew had tried some and apparently the sauce did not agree with them. It burned through one of their stomachs, luckily he survived. The third day of the human week was considered curry day and was sacred to them, along with “tacos” on the second day. Their meal was interrupted by sergeant Cathy calling for everyone’s attention.

“Excuse me everyone” the talking stopped and they looked over at her, she was clearly distressed.

“Has anyone seen Troy?”

“Your beagle?” asked another Human.

“Yeah, he isn’t in the puppy pen”

“Maybe someone took him for a walk?”

“I thought of that but he hasn’t been signed out”

All the Humans looked at each other and a silent agreement passed between them all as they all put down their food and left the canteen to go find Troy leaving a number of the non human crew alone.

“What’s a beagle?” Kio asked his mate.

After only one hour every Human on the ship was looking for him, they checked every vent, every cannon and every inch of the ship and were soon resorting to handing out picture of Troy asking if anyone had seen him. To the non Humans this behaviour was odd, this animal was not part of the crew or their squad yet every one of the Humans was distressed about it being missing.

Cathy found a number Benemar wrestling in the gym and approached them.

“Excuse me”

“Huh? A Human, what are you doing here?”

“I’m looking for my dog Troy, here’s a picture of him please let me know if you see him”

The Benemar clan leader took the picture and a smile crawled across his face, he handed it to the others who all mimicked his expression.

“We have seen this thing little Human”

“You have!!! Where?” she asked eagerly.

“Well you might have trouble finding him now” he laughed

“What?”

“We wanted to try Human food, this animal barley had any meat on him I don’t know why you keep them”

Cathy looked up at them her face blank, no emotion and her voice flat.

“You…ate him?”

“Yeah, I mean this creature makes a pitiful meal and cried the moment we picked it up, stupid animal”

“You…ate Troy?”

“You deaf yes, if you are looking for us to be sorry for eating your food, tough we are Benemar and our laws say only the strong eat”

“You…you….”

Cathy was shaking and her hands curling into fists, her face went from calm to rage in a single terrifying moment. “YOU ATE MY DOG!!!”

She lunged at him and proceeded to tear him apart.

Admiral Polt and Capitan Clerk sat opposite each other in Polt’s office, the silence between them was vast as Clerk had said something that Polt did not expect.

“Can you say that again please for the record” Polt asked.

“I believe Cathy’s reaction was justified” Clerk said with no uncertainty in his voice.

“She killed the Benemar clan leader, his chief is demanding justice”

“If he wants to try and get it he is free to, but in my eyes and my superiors she has done no wrong as under our law dogs are given the same basic rights as us”

“But it’s just as dog?”

“IT’S NOT JUST A—-” Clerk said slamming his hand down on the table but quickly calmed himself “It’s not just a dog, it is  “A” dog”

Polt nearly fled the room when Clerk slammed his hand, after seeing what remained of the Benemar he had no desire to anger another Human.

“I loved that dog, we all did and love all the dogs we brought with us, for someone to…eat one is…”

“It’s okay I understand, I shall speak the chief”

“Thankyou” Clerk said leaving and Polt called the chief to his office.

“What do yo mean you are taking no action?” the chief screamed.

“By their laws sergeant Cathy has done no wrong and was well within her rights”

“She killed one of my clan leaders!”

“Rather impressive for a Human half his size don’t you think? You saw the body, do you really want to take this further? If so I’m sure Captain Clerk would be happy for you to”

“What was it about that animal that they hold so dear?”

“I’m, glad you asked” Polt said pulling out a small folder “i have been reading up on Humans for a few weeks now and there is an interesting bit about dogs I believe will help put this in perspective. They have co-existed and co-evolved for over 30.000 years. The bond between a Human and a Dog is so strong that no words need pass between them for each to know what the other wants. They have fought battles together and have made homes together and Humans care for their dogs as if they were their own children and dogs protect and serve the humans as they are a loving parent. No other race in the galaxy has a companion quite like the Humans have dogs, to belittle or harm their companions in any way will bring their full wrath down upon you”

Polt closed the book and looked at the Benemar chief who had said nothing, he left without saying another word to quickly tell his own warriors to leave these dogs alone.

Polt breathed, another crisis averted and he could move onto more pressing matters, like this Sergeant Stabby that was visiting next month and has all the Humans excited, he worried as to why.
