putin's kiss

There is a trap that many progressives fall into when faced with an enemy that is hated by most in their community, often we will forget our progressive values when fighting them.

Examples of this phenomenon are edited pictures of trump and Putin kissing, implying two men kissing is gross or shameful, another example is calling terfs ugly as if ugly is the worst thing for a terf to be.

Alternatively we can make edits of put in being controlled by Putin with strings like a puppet. Or we can make posts pointing out that terfs are people who joined feminism not because they wanted all women to have equality but because they wanted to have power and consider themselves smart. And in the fact that they joined feminism only for their own self promotion and not to help other people makes their feminism is irrevocably tainted. So while we all hope they grow out of this selfish and fundamentally cruel behaviour it is unlikely, and until they do change and apologize for their actions we will refuse to share space with them when we have that option and harshly exclude them from spaces when we can.

So more posts/protest signs/arguments that don’t use anti-progressive and homophobic tactics to get their point across.

LITHUANIA, Vilnius : People walk past a mural on a restaurant wall depicting US  Presidential hopeful Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin greeting each other with a kiss in the Lithuanian capital Vilnius on May 13, 2016.
Kestutis Girnius, associate professor of the Institute of International Relations and Political Science in Vilnius university, told AFP -This graffiti expresses the fear of some Lithuanians that Donald Trump is likely to kowtow to Vladimir Putin and be indifferent to Lithuania’s security concerns. Trump has notoriously stated that Putin is a strong leader, and that NATO is ‘obsolete and expensive.’

“Take me to church,
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies,
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife,
Offer me that deathless death, 
Oh Good God, let me give you my life.”

One of the most powerful and haunting songs and music videos I have ever seen, attacking Russia’s anti-gay laws. Please watch and reblog!

Once I had a dream where Putin was mad at the U.S. for not allowing Obama to run again so he started bombing Texas. Eventually laws were changed and Obama could run again. In fear of upsetting Putin, everyone voted for Obama. After the election Putin ran up and kissed Obama in front of everyone then got all flustered and ran inside. Obama laughed nervously and ran inside after him.

Sorry, I don't know if you've seen the show "Friends" or if you've already done a minific like this but there's an episode in the show where Chandler struggles to keep his relationship with Monica a secret (like he accidentally kisses her, so he plays it off by kissing the other girls in the room as well). PROMPT: Maybe Beca is finding it hard to keep her relationship with Chloe private (kinda similar to Chandler's situation). Thanks :)

They weren’t explicitly keeping it a secret. 

They just didn’t want anyone to know.
