WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME ABOUT THIS

“As progress spreads from State to State, as justice is delivered in the courtroom, and as more of our fellow Americans are treated with dignity and respect — our Nation becomes not only more accepting, but more equal as well,” Obama stated. “I call upon the people of the United States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people.”

National hero outsmarts bullshit workplace dress code with cosplay.

June Rivas is an HRM who was so fed up with the corporal system that decided to change it on her own.


One day Rivas boss informed her that having her hair in a ponytail and wearing a headscarf was unprofessional. However, looking through the company dress code to verify, she found the only mention of employees’ garments being “clean and pressed”, so she filed a complaint against the boss for harassment.
The boss stroke back by changing the dress code to prohibit “straps, hats, sandals, cleavage, back out, lace,” and even “cultural head wraps.” I bet she didn’t expect Rivas to take it literally. ‘Cause oops, she forgot to mention colored contacts, wigs, capes, and other superhero attire.

Here, what she’s done:

June Rivas is my hero. Black girl just slayed the system.

Happy Pride Month, tumblr friends!!

At Planned Parenthood, our doors are open to everyone — regardless of gender identity, gender expression, and/or sexual orientation. We’re here for you — no matter what. Because we know that when people are truly cared for, they make their lives, their families, and their communities better and healthier.

Ultimately, a relationship with a bisexual in it isn’t ever really “straight” anyway—by virtue of the fact that there’s at least one person in there queering the whole thing up. At our best, bisexuals are queer ambassadors: We’re out here injecting queer sensibilities into the straight world, one conversation and one relationship at a time.
