"Oh my god stop exaggerating the election is over move on"

I’m not exaggerating when I say I sat on the phone with my friends as they cried talking about how they don’t know how they’ll tell their kids they’re probably going to be deported.

I’m not exaggerating when I say I saw my friends tell their husbands and wives they’ll still be married even if this new presidency voids their marriage license.

I’m not exaggerating when I quote the excitement from men who celebrated the fact that if their president can sexually assault women so can they.

I’m not exaggerating when I have a fear for all those in the lgbtq community because I know exactly what happens in conversion therapy that this campaign supports and will most likely try to introduce into this country.

I’m not exaggerating when it’s only noon and the increase in hate speech against minorities, people of color, of different religious and ethnic backgrounds has occurred because despite their legal citizenship they still look different and therefore, “don’t belong here.”

I’m not exaggerating when I see women who lost babies knowing that it may soon be a law that it’s her fault and she should be punished let alone the rest of women who may no longer have a say to what they do with their own bodies.

I’m not exaggerating when the suicide prevention hotlines are busy, the immigration websites crashed, when there are riots in the streets because this is the first modern time when people are genuinely afraid to be alive due to the person elected to lead them.

But sure calls us hypocrites, shake your head at our “exaggerations”, and please for the love of God delete me from social media and your life because if you’re okay with this new outlook I’m afraid of you.

Why did I became a super popular meme in US presidential campaign?
1) I live and work in Belgium.
2) I work in my own tattoo shop.
3) I don’t give a flying fuck about US politics.
4) In the case I’d had to express an opinion, I’d say that Donald Trump is a nazi

… so, I have a job, Trump is indeed a racist, and the media that support his campaign all lie.

AND if you’re a US citizen, are poor or middleclass, you need to be a fucking idiot to believe that a billionaire will solve your problems. Billionaires will never solve your problems, they ARE the problem.

Please share to reinform.

Happy Thanksgiving!

In Australia, we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving but it seems like a beautiful time to come together with family or friends to celebrate each other. It’s also an important reminder of how crucial it is to have a support system, and to check in with each other – especially if you’re LGBTQIA+

Have a lovely day! 

Lots of love,

Pastor calls out “political nonsense” of Starbucks hiring refugees, forgets Jesus was a refugee

  • In a YouTube video posted Monday, Greg Locke, lead pastor at Global Vision Bible Church, supported an online campaign to #BoycottStarbucks. 
  • The hashtag trended on Twitter following news that Starbucks would hire 10,000 refugees over the next five years.
  • Like others who called for a boycott of the coffeehouse giant, Locke decried Starbucks for being too political.
  • Maybe Locke forget that Jesus was himself a refugee. The Book of Matthew details how Jesus’ father took him to Egypt after being warned of King Herod’s intent to destroy him. Herod later ordered the deaths of all boys in Bethlehem under 2 years old. 
  • Not only was Jesus a refugee, he also made clear his stance on feeding the poor and “inviting the stranger in” in the Book of Matthew. 
  • Locke’s video rant also ignores how Trump’s administration has already negatively impacted veterans.  Read more
When Hillary asked me to be her running mate, what flashed through my mind was I’ve been in politics for 22 years; this is my ninth race. In all the previous eight races, I’ve been the guy with my name on the ballot, my name on the bumper sticker and the yard sign. And I’ve had all these strong women supporting me: campaign managers, Cabinet secretaries, agency heads; the voters that we get are more women than men.

And I remember thinking, “Wow, I’m going to have the chance now to not be the top of the ticket. I’m going to be a strong man supporting the first strong woman to be president of the United States.” And as important as it is to normalize that a woman can be president, it’s also important to normalize that strong men can support a woman as president.

Bernie Sanders: Where the Democrats Go From Here
Opinion

By Bernie Sanders

Millions of Americans registered a protest vote on Tuesday, expressing their fierce opposition to an economic and political system that puts wealthy and corporate interests over their own. I strongly supported Hillary Clinton, campaigned on her behalf, and believed she was the right choice on Election Day. But Donald J. Trump won the White House because his campaign rhetoric successfully tapped into a very real and justified anger, an anger that many traditional Democrats feel.

I am saddened, but not surprised, by the outcome. It is no shock to me that millions of people who voted for Mr. Trump did so because they are sick and tired of the economic political and media status quo.

Working Families watch as politicians get campaign financial support from billionaires and corporate interests - and then ignore the needs if ordinary Americans. Over the last 30 years, too many Americans were sold out by their corporate bosses. They work longer hours for lower wages as they see decent paying jobs go to China, Mexico and other low-wage countries. They are tired of having chief executives make 300 times what they do, while 52% of all new income goes to the top 1%. Many of their once beautiful rural towns have depopulated, their downtown stores are shuttered, and their kids aren’t leaving home because there are no jobs - all while corporations suck the wealth out of their communities and stuff them into offshore accounts.


“When my presidential campaign ended, I pledged to my supporters that the political revolution would continue.”


Working Americans can’t afford decent, quality child care for their children. They can’t send their kids to college, and they have nothing in the bank as they head into retirement. In many parts of the country they can’t find affordable housing, and they find the cost of health insurance much too high. Too many families exist in despair as drugs, alcohol and suicide cut life short for a growing number of people.

President-elect Trump is right: The American people want change. But what kind of change will he be offering them? Will he have the courage to stand up to the most powerful people in this country who are responsible for the economic pain that so many working families feel, or will he turn the anger of the majority against minorities, immigrants, the poor and the helpless?

Will he have the courage to stand up to Wall Street, work to break up the “too big to fail” financial institutions and demand that big banks invest in small business and create jobs in rural America and inner cities? Or, will he appoint another Wall Street banker to run the Treasury Department and continue business as usual? Will he, as he promised during the campaign, really take on the pharmaceutical industry and lower the price of prescription drugs?

I am deeply distressed to hear stories of Americans being intimidated and harassed in the wake of Mr. Trump’s victory, and I hear the cries of families who are living in fear of being torn apart. We have come too far as a country in combating discrimination. We are not going back. Rest assured, there is no compromise on racism bigotry, xenophobia, and sexism. We will fight it in all it’s forms, whenever and wherever it re-emerges.

As of this last week we’ve finished up our fundraiser with Chase! After four months of fundraising we succeeded in donat in $4,200 in total from our Support Chase campaign with another $595 raised through his YouCaring. 

And with that, we’re declaring the Support Chase fundraiser officially and successfully closed! But before we wrap up, there’s a few last things to say..

Chase wants you all to know he loves you all, this community who turned out to help him in such a pivotal way. 

Our line of BTLM gear will stay open at least until our next fundraiser, with all funds outside of operational costs to keep the line in stock going into our Black Trans Lives Fund. All moneys in which will go directly to black trans individuals in need, or black trans organizations.

Thank you all, for every donation, every like, every reblog - and all your dedication that has helped us make this campaign such a great success!

-W2R Team

And just like that, the Check, Please: Year Two Kickstarter is over. A big thank you to everyone who supported the campaign with either a pledge or by sharing a link or even just by reading this comic. Thank you!

Backers will be receiving project updates via Kickstarter, and I’ll be hard at work on both the Year Two book and all its extras and drawing brand new comics. Either way, I’ll be both busy–and excited!

So thank you again!

Thank you

Before this year ends, I want to thank you again for your support of our campaign. While we didn’t achieve the outcome we sought, I’m proud of the vision and values we fought for and the nearly 66 million people who voted for them.

I believe it is our responsibility to keep doing our part to build a better, stronger, and fairer future for our country and the world.

The holidays are a time to be thankful for our blessings. So let us rejoice in this season and look forward with renewed hope and determination.

I wish you and your family health, happiness, and continued strength for the New Year and the work ahead.

I look forward to staying in touch in 2017. Onward!

With deep appreciation and warm wishes, I am,

Yours,

Hillary

Today, I discovered that my Dad’s family very much supports Donald Trump. They tried to convince me to support his campaign by donating money. We’re not even American. FML

What she says: I’m fine

What she means: Even though Deadpool has been confirmed as pansexual, there hasn’t been a lot of canon same-sex relationships in his history. We get subtle hints and see Wade be openly attracted to people of all genders but so far he’s only been in explicit relationship with women. Yes, there was his relationship with Cable but even then it might have been one-sided and it was never outright confirmed in the comics. Deadpool’s “true love” death is even represented as a women most of the time. Deadpool has had numerous relationships and there are plenty of occurrences in the comics where he flirts with women but his attraction to men and non-gender conforming people isn’t really shown in the same light. I want Deadpool to confirm his pansexuality in the comics and movies. Instead of creators confirming Wade’s sexuality and only giving subtle hints in comics, the creators should actually make Wade openly pansexual and have him in same-sex relationships.
