It is outrageous to see the photos of people injured by North Dakota’s brutal police actions at Standing Rock. The police were using a water canon on Standing Rock water protectors in sub-zero weather potentially subjecting them to life-threatening hypothermia. They were firing on the people with rubber bullets, and spraying them with mace. 167 people were reportedly injured in one night, several seriously. A 21-year-old woman, Sophia Wilansky, was horribly injured when, a number of witnesses said, she was hit in the arm by a concussion grenade thrown by anti-water protector forces. Her doctor says she may need 20 surgeries and may still lose her arm. One young horse was killed as well.

‘Utmost Good Faith’ and North Dakota’s Brutal Actions at Standing Rock

If folks want to really understand the historical significance of Standing Rock, and why the land the pipeline there has been taken illegally, or why the original people of this nation have a constitutional right to reject its presence? Please read this article.

PLEASE read this article. Then keep protesting,calling reps, speaking out. This is peak white violence in the making. It is up to other white people to fight and stop it, because white people are all white people like this really care about.

Nazis. These are nazis. This article is from the NY Times.

This is what ‘white identity’ is and always has been. Horrible, greedy, violent, lost.

You fix it. It’s enough for the rest of us to keep fucking living and fighting for our lives.

Signal boost. Is America stronger than Germany? Bigger? Freer? Actions decide.

Jimin has a weakness for the tsundere maknae!?

JM: First we should make a name for our unit. How about Between Love and Friendship? Doesn’t that fit our relationship exactly?

JK: [Pulling a sour face] Um~. Well…It’s okay.

JM: Just because it’s called Love doesn’t mean it’s anything weird! It’s brotherly love, Brotherly! Love! It means the relationship between brothers and friends, so don’t misunderstand!

JK: Nobody did [laughs]

In ‘Falsettos,’ an Affecting Echo of AIDS Anxiety
This revival features a scene that can take away the breath of anyone who was touched by an illness that started claiming mainly gay men.
By Charles Isherwood

“The scene, acted with beautiful simplicity by Mr. Rannells and Mr. Borle, whose Marvin rushes to Whizzer’s aid, affected me as no other in the theater this year — as did the concluding, devastating scenes of the show — because it was like being thrust in a time capsule and brought back to the terrible years when the AIDS epidemic was at full force. I was living in Los Angeles in the late 1980s, in my 20s, and, as a gay man with many gay friends, existed in what can only be called a constant state of mortal anxiety: anxiety for my health but also that of so many people I knew, and many more that I didn’t.”

If you haven’t already, PLEASE read Charles Isherwoods beautiful article about Falsettos for NYT. This musical is special for people in ways some of us (me included) will never really comprehend. Respect it.

This is a full translation of the article that is deleted within (an estimated) 30 minutes after it was posted. Apparently, TS was in contact with the reporter that wrote the article, hence the availability of quotes in the article. Please read the full translation of the article below. 


[TITLE: THE CHICKEN GAME BETWEEN THE AGENCY AND B.A.P’S FANS]

B.A.P’s world tour is opening soon. The fans declare a boycott and express objection towards the concert (T/N: Seoul Boom; context for Babyz’ reference: Boycott Camp wants to boycott Seoul Boom to lead to cancellation of the Seoul Boom concerts as well as the rest of the Party Baby World Tour). TS Entertainment’s position is that they will not back down because concert cannot be cancelled with the confirmation of plans and contracts for concerts in place, hence it is impossible for cancellation. The situation of the intense polarised spate (between the agency and the fans) is being played out right now.

TS Entertainment released through the B.A.P’s official channel to inform fans of a world tour that will start with the concerts in Seoul. The Seoul concerts will be held at the Blue Square Samsung Card Hall over three days starting on 24 March and the world tour is coordinated now with USA and Europe to happen afterwards. In the concert poster, an exciting party atmosphere is seen with logos and neon signs reminiscent of a club to reveal a scene of exciting fun and exciting performances by the members.

Contrary to the poster’s enjoyable time with the members, fans’ reactions were the opposite. Via SNS platforms (T/N: Twitter), fans expressed their sentiments with the hashtag #2017_BAP월드투어_반대, which is now part of the boycott campaign that’s ongoing right now. There has even been a portal site petition page that has been opened for the campaign. Campaigners are worried about the tight and taxing schedule that the members have to digest after going on many tours after their 2012 debut, with the Pacific Tour in 2013 Summer, the Arena Tour in 2013 Winter, the Continent Tour in 2014 Summer, the World Tour in 2016, the Japan Tour in 2017 January, and even the upcoming 2017 Party Baby World Tour.

Another question that fans have is of Yongguk’s health—on sick leave due to the diagnosis of his panic disorder—and his participation in the concerts and in the world tour. In the past year’s second full length album NOIR’s promotions for ‘Skydive’, he was even too unwell to participate in the promotions, thus it is doubted whether he is well enough to join the upcoming tour. The conclusion is that it is fans’ wish to see a stop to the abuse of ‘our oppas’ with unreasonable schedules.

The agency is put in a difficult spot by the fans’ boycott. It is said that the plans for the tour cannot be made without the discussion with members, and members have also shared the official post of the world tour on their own SNS accounts to express their wish to go through with the plans; hence this is the current stand. In response to the charge of unreasonable schedule, it is expressed that “after last November’s promotions for Skydive, members already had a 2-week break” and this has been discussed with the members. With regards to the lack of domestic activities for B.A.P, TS expressed that “a new album is about to be released before the world tour and it is in the pipelines for B.A.P to promote it on Music Shows” as explanation. It is also speculated/ hinted that in the new album, the voice of Bang Yong Guk who is resting now will be heard.

As such, right now the agency and the fans are in a tense standoff. The agency that refuses to give any explanation or response to fans wants to tide over the controversy of being labelled as ‘bad’, and from the standpoint of the agency, fans are putting on a show of tyranny. Whether it will be a performance that has no fans, or the disadvantage of cancelling the performance, either outcome will be B.A.P’s tragedy.

(Personal side note: While I’m not in the boycott camp, I felt slighted and mocked when the reporter used terms like fans are worried about the abuse of “our oppas”. In addition, it starts to look like a report in favour of TS when the quotes start coming up, which made babyz’ concerns seem unreasonable and uncalled for. Also, most importantly, the fact that TS thinks that having 2 weeks break after promoting Skydive means B.A.P can have a killer world tour schedule from March till god-knows-which-month tells me that TS has no common sense and is not listening or reading our concerns, which is the killer tour schedule and not whether B.A.P gets vacation breaks or not. For instance, sleeping 72 hours straight does not mean that you can work for 123456 days straight. So resting for 2 weeks last December doesn’t mean that one can store that rest like a camel stores water and overwork in future. In addition, promoting on Music Shows for only around 2 weeks before going on tour is not doing the new album justice nor is it really answering to our call for more domestic activities. TS is not answering anything at all. Last but not least, the very last line is immensely saddening. It is also precisely why I champion for the middle ground camp. Why doesn’t anyone see it like I do.)

CAMILA’S ARTICLE IN ‘THE SUN’: Please read here and not on the Sun website.

For those of you who are not British or don’t know about it, the Sun is a shitty evil newspaper owned by Rupert Murdoch (literally the devil) and perpetuates populist right-wing narratives. The “newspaper” is mainly read by relatively uneducated people or people who only read it for gossip or the photos of naked women. They explicitly backed Brexit using nationalist xenophobic bullshit. In the midst of the Syrian refugee crisis, their columnist Katie Hopkins called migrants ‘cockroaches’.

So please do me a favour and read Camila’s article here instead of giving The Sun views/ money by visiting their website. Thanks lol.

Please reblog this version!!!!!!!!!!

Hello sorry to bother you, but i think you would be the best person to ask- how do the cwhl and nwhl view each other? Would there ever be a merger of the two?

this has been sitting in my inbox for weeks and I’m so sorry for that.

There’s a great series by Zoë Hayden on The Victory Press about the history of the NWHL and CWHL:

The Story So Far: CWHL and NWHL (Part I)

The Story So Far: CWHL and NWHL (Part II)

There’s also Angelica Rodriguez’s history of the Minnesota Whitecaps, which covers the start of the CWHL quite well.

These are very long reads but they are worth it. Everything you could want to know about the history of the NWHL and CWHL is included in those articles. Please read those first before continuing down this ask, as they have important stuff I’m going to reference in the rest of this.

This got really long so I’m going to put it under a read more.
