“BLACK LESBIAN FEMINIST,” Gwenn Craig (@gwenndolina), Lesbian & Gay Caucus member, 1980 Democratic National Convention, New York City, August 1980. Photo by Allen G. Shores, c/o @onearchives. The 1980 Democratic National Convention marked the first time one of the two main American political parties endorsed a platform calling for protection from discrimination based on “sexual orientation”; in 2008, the DNC added “gender identity” to the list of protected classes. In its 2016 platform, the Democratic National Committee “applauds last year’s decision by the Supreme Court that recognized that LGBT people—like other Americans—have the right to marry the person they love.” But, the platform adds, “there is still much work to be done. LGBT kids continue to be bullied at school, restaurants can refuse to serve transgender people, and same sex-couples are at risk of being evicted from their homes. That is unacceptable and must change.” The Democratic Party platform goes on to guarantee that Democrats “will fight for the continued development of sex discrimination laws to cover LGBT people… [and] for comprehensive federal non-discrimination protections for all LGBT Americans.” The party, according to the platform, “will oppose all state efforts to discriminate against LGBT individuals, including legislation that restricts the right to access public spaces…, [and] combat LGBT youth homelessness….We will support LGBT elders…, and protect LGBT people violence—including ending the crisis of violence against transgender Americans. We will also promote LGBT human rights…around the world.” The 2016 Republican National Committee platform, on the other hand, condemns marriage equality as undermining the “foundation for a free society” and declares that those who fight for the civil rights of the trans community “are determined to reshape our schools — and our entire society — to fit the mold of an ideology alien to America’s history and traditions.” #lgbthistory #lgbtherstory #lgbttheirstory #lgbtpride #queerhistorymatters #haveprideinhistory #yourchoice #DNCinPHL (at Madison Square Garden)
NYCC tickets were sold out the day they were released :/
catch me @ NYCC anyway i’ll be the person standing outside of the convention center in the chilly fall weather wearing nothing but booty shorts and nipple pasties that say “NYCC” and “SUCKS” until someone either takes pity on me and sneaks me in or i get arrested for public indecency
I haven’t seen the fan site video that seemed to start all this, but this is unacceptable? What right to you have to think you can just talk about lighting another on fire because of something so little and petty?? If you see treatment from the members to each other that you don’t particularly like, then you can talk about it calmly, not shit on the way he was brought up like some kind of animal.
And I definitely agree with this whole mob mentality thing that’s been happening for a while. You can have disagreements with someone, it happens, but that is NO reason to have an army of fans go and bash that person or other members. When that happens, you can calmly message the person and just talk about it. And to corner someone into having to make a statement when they literally had no part in this entire ordeal is even more ridiculous.
I had this class about comic books and I thought it was going to be awesome because hey comic books but it was awful because the prof thought The Dark Knight Rises, Watchmen and the like were the peak of comic books, everything else DC was trash, Marvel was the only company that had any idea how to write superheroes, and she actually told us to write a letter /to Superman/ on his anniversary about how terrible he is. I just couldn't do it.
If we're looking to debate, let's hit the heavy subjects first. Why hasn't Niall graced us with some public photos of any of the boys wearing crop tops? You know he has at least one of Louis' tum tum and he withholds these? Unacceptable.
i need more of this. there can’t be just one pic of this.
I accidentally stumbled across Chris Farley’s crime scene (or death scene technically) photos a few weeks ago and like, oh man. That was traumatizing. Freaking Google shouldn’t show those so far up on search results, especially when that wasn’t what I was even looking for. I swear if I ever (God fucking forbid) find photos like that of John Belushi dead I will burn my freaking computer. Things like that shouldn’t even be public.
Okay but how DARE you call yourself part of the EXO fandom and bash on Sehun for saying he likes men.
If any of you remember, he said something about it years ago while speaking to Suho. He was so unsure in that video, but now he seems more sure of it and of himself and there is NOTHING wrong with that.
I’m super new to this fandom and I still think this is completely unacceptable. How can you call yourself a fan, how can you call yourself part of EXO-L, if your love for the each member and the band as a whole is conditional.
You either love all or you love none. EXO wouldn’t be as successful as they are without every single member that they have now. I’m so sick of this goddamn fandom and their twisted views on what it means to be a fan.
You are not a fan if you say you ‘hate’ one of the members. How can you be a fan of the actual band as a whole if you’re not a fan of everyone in it?
You can be a fan of their music without liking the actual band. You can be a fan of specific boys without liking the actual band. But don’t come into this fandom and expect me to say that I accept you because I don’t.
You are NOT fans. You’re bitchy little girls clinging onto the newest trend and I cannot fucking wait for you to cling onto something else and leave my beautiful babies alone because they deserve better 'fans’ than your petty ass hormonal teenage girl bullshit.
Sehun is lovely as he is so fuck off if you think different.
NAC: when you play in Italy you don't transfer to Juve, especially when you're playing for clubs like Napoli and Roma, who have a rivalry with Juve. It's that simple, Higuain could have gone anywhere else. Almost every big club in the world wanted him, same with Pjanic, so they're snakes, and traitors. It's like Turan to Barcelona, just unacceptable
yeah im totally aware of that. im also a minor im not that much older than them, and they did and said things that were 100% unacceptable. i did try to reach out to them in a way that was gentle. like i promise you i approached them in a completely reasonable way and i intended upon being nice
but then they um………….. they did. the things that they did lol
Thanks for the prompt! I got a few more for deamus so I’ll try and post them over the next few days or as soon as I can.
Seamus stands in the doorway of his kitchen; watching his mother furiously scrub at a pot in the sink.
This was definitely not a good sign; his mum only cleans the muggle way when she’s stressed.
Seamus swallows down his guilt and stuffs his fists into his pocket.
“Can I help?”
His mother turns sharply and stares him down,
“No. No I think you’ve done enough this afternoon thank you very much.”
Honestly he hadn’t expected her to react this way.
It was Christmas Day and his parents had encouraged Seamus to invite Dean over for the day. Things were finally settling down after the war ended back in May and his parents were aware that ever since their son and his best friend reunited after spending a year apart, they had become more inseparable than ever.
However his parents hadn’t known that he and Dean had been dating ever since the war ended.
Until today when Dean and Seamus walked into the sitting room holding hands and everything suddenly fell into place.
“I think it’s probably time for Dean to go home now anyway, it’s getting late.”
Seamus glances at the clock on the wall that read half 4 pm.
“Ma come on you’re the one who said we should have him over-”
“That was before!” His mum threw her cleaning gloves in the sink and drags a hand over her face “That was before you told me that…that you and him were…”
“What’s the problem?” Seamus hisses “You like Dean! You’ve always liked Dean!”
“When he was your best friend yes!” Her words come out louder than expected and Seamus silently hopes that Dean can’t hear them in the next room, “Why…why didn’t you tell me that you were…that you are…”
“Because I didn’t think it mattered that I’m gay!”
does that anon know that the united states of america is at risk for having a FASCIST LEADER (see: world war 2 for why that is BAD) as its president. electing trump would be the first article in my us history teacher's textbook on how america got fucked up and somehow contributed to disasters/wars/ect. in the future. hilary is NOT someone i'd vote for, but letting some fascist sexist racist xenophobe run the country is unacceptable. it's either her or hell for the foreseeable future.
Exactly. I don’t like Hillary but Trump will destroy us. @ anon
Alright, see, if it was used to show that Bruce has been at this game too long, was losing his perspective and becoming something he shouldn’t be, and was in need of the wake-up call that Clark provided, then I’m okay with it, because that makes sense and is a workable indicator of the state of mind BvS was trying to get across for him, pre- his ‘men are still good’ revelation. That’s acceptable.
Now, him sleeping with Babs in TKJ is completely unacceptable still, but the branding I can be cool with.
I’m starting up a handwritten mental health journal. I’m starting by writing up a list of all of the… odd traits and interests I have that are either socially unacceptable, unheard of, or that I feel self conscious about.
I’ve wanted to make that list for a long time… just sit down and be real with myself and face all of my uncomfortable eccentricities that even my close friends and family don’t know about.
Someday I want to be able to accept and live with every single one.
