Zionist Israeli occupation executed another young Palestinian Mohammed al-Kasbeh, 18-year-old, at Qalandia checkpoint north of Jerusalem

This morning, Friday, occupation thugs shot the guy Mohammed right in the head in cold blood and left him to bleed to death.

Mohammed is the third brother of the martyrs Yasser and Samer al-Kasbeh who were martyred in 2001 in Qalandia camp, northern Occupied Jerusalem

7/4/1776

Tomorrow, Americans in this country, and Americans in other countries we own or lease or occupy or plan to annex, will gather to celebrate the dramatic day our nation was spat forth upon this earth from the loins of Destiny those many thousands of years ago. This will be done, as it always has been, with the ritual consumption of beef and pork products, followed by the the ignition of incendiary devices.

But during these celebrations, most Americans lose sight of the real events that helped give birth to our nation. So as I am educated and trained as a historian, I feel it is somewhat of a duty for me to offer this brief overview for you (and also for my European readers who are mystified not only by our history, but why we write the month ahead of the date as I’ve done in the title of this post).

On July 4th, 1776, Daniel Boone made his famous midnight ride to warn the signers of the Declaration of Independence that British troops were drawing near.

The British 4th Mechanized Division, under the command of Oliver Cromwell, approached the Appomattox Courthouse in Boston where the signers were gathered. General Washington’s ragtag band of conscripts—dubbed “Tusken Raiders”—outnumbered by 1000 to 1, freezing in the cold and nearly starved to death, managed to hold off Cromwell’s forces long enough to allow the signers to escape and finish writing the Declaration of Independence. As the fighting raged on, Thomas Jefferson was able to sign the document and get it in the mail to England just minutes before the post office closed.

Washington’s men retreated several times until they were finally encircled and forced to take refuge in The Alamo. The remaining American forces fought bravely for six more months, until the walls were finally breached by the British. The Americans surrendered, having won the war somehow, and the new nation’s independence was solidified with the signing of the Treaty of Ghent.

The only American survivor of the siege at The Alamo was P. T. Barnum, who would later become our country’s 12th president.

So as you all eat your burgers and guzzle your beers and blow shit up tomorrow, take a moment to reflect solemnly on the world-changing events of that day, and remember those immortal opening words of our founding document, the Declaration: “One For All, and All For One.”

like she still literally refuses to say ‘i am a camab woman’ this is just inane

assigned sex at birth is a social construction and i absolutely understand that it’s a stupid thing to need to be concerned about. but when you’re speaking authoritatively on trans women’s experiences and you won’t actually say if you’re a camab woman or not i’m sorry but nah. 

repeatedly stating ‘i assure you i’m subject to transmisogyny’ as koyama has means nothing coming from someone who’s repeatedly said they believe cafab people can be trans women.

there’s every indication that she’s an intersex cafab woman and like, obviously society isn’t divisible into superordinate power classes and subordinate ones but no matter how you conceptualise power i think we can all agree that the position she occupies isn’t one of immense hegemonic power. that’s not what i’m trying to argue. 

what i (and a bunch of other people, including a number of trans women of colour and intersex ppl) are saying is that, if emi koyama is cafab, she has been misrepresenting her experiences so she can exercise a form of power over camab women which is immensely transmisogynist. 

on a personal level, even if she is a camab woman, i find her analysis completely ignorant.

I'm super sorry if this is late and you're not doing these anymore but Slit, B4, 4 would be raaaad o uo

Sure! Content, not-frowning Slit coming up. If anyone else wants to send in any more, feel free to do so, but I’ll be a bit occupied with Askslit + other stuff so it’s gonna take me a while to get to ‘em, and I can’t really make any promises.

Best way to move on from unrequited love?

I understand how much this hurts, but sometimes you just have to face reality. First, ask yourself if there literally no chance to be with them? If there is, even a slight chance I recommend you take the risk because that is better than asking constantly what if. If there is no chance or they have said there is no chance, you just have to cut your losses and move on. It will take time, but just keep yourself occupied with friends and family

Harm Reduction Coalition and friends outside United Nations headquarters for #SupportDontPunish standing up for health, human rights and harm reduction.

Support. Don’t Punish is a global advocacy campaign calling for better drug policies that prioritize public health and human rights. The campaign aims to promote drug policy reform, and to change laws and policies which impede access to harm reduction interventions.

The Support. Don’t Punish campaign aligns with the following key messages:

  • The drug control system is broken and in need of reform
  • People who use drugs should no longer be criminalized
  • People involved in the drug trade at low levels, especially those involved for reasons of subsistence or coercion, should not face harsh or disproportionate punishments
  • The death penalty should never be imposed for drug offences
  • Drug policy in the next decade should focus on health and harm reduction
  • By 2020, 10% of global resources expended on drug policies should be invested in public health and harm reduction.

The Soldier’s Return (1900). Marcus Stone R.A. (British, 1840-1921). Oil on canvas.

The woman sits isolated; her black dress conjures up a sense of potential mourning. She is surrounded by symbols of the passing of time; the sundial, a book, material and a sewing box, all presumably to keep her mind occupied while her soldier lover is at war. These distractions have ultimately failed however as she holds a letter close to her heart. The soldier is directed to her in a conspiratorial fashion.

Después de desarmar a los soviet, Stalin mató más de 20 millones, Mao Tse después de desarmar a su pueblo mató más 40 millones, después de desarmar a la población alemana, Hitler mató más de 14 millones, Obama tiene en su agenda desarmar a la población. 

PERSONALMENTE no me gustan las armas pero es un debate difícil, aunque no me gusta lo que dice la imágen es interesante, pero lo que tengo claro es que quien lleve un arma debería pasar controles psicológicos después de lo que se ve en EE.UU, eso seguro.
