So once upon a time, the largest newspaper in my state posted a full-page transphobic ad in light of the Minnesota State High School League considering a decision taking place on October 1-2 that would allow for transgender students to play in high school athletics based on their gender identity and immediately lost any respect I may have had for them.
The ad was paid for by a group that calls themselves the Minnesota Child Protection League, and along with associating with personalities like Michele Bachmann and Matt Barber liken LGBTQIA+ acceptance to the predatory behavior of pedophiles and pornography:
There’s two days before the decision, and I’ve gathered a few links for folks to do as they will:
If you like to scream at or reason with the equivalent of a brick wall, here’s the contact page of the Child Protection League’s website (Includes a mailing address)
Also, one for their facebook page.
If you’d like to call out the Star Tribune for broadcasting transphobia to the masses in the hopes of pressuring them into issuing some kind of a formal apology:
Star Tribune online contact form
Contact info for Advertisement Sales
Contact info for Rene Sanchez, Editor & Vice President
Contact info for all senior management
Or, if you’d like to be positive and show your support for transgender people to the Minnesota State High School League, here is the contact info for the administrative board.
what the FUCK
Not taking any chances
Shit me neither
I don’t even give a shit I’ll do anything at this point
Female pilots edited out of the Star Wars movies.
I saw the tweets about this today, and I was like oh yeah, I remember hearing about that.
And then I saw the pictures and just— wow. What it would have meant to have these women in the movie, all this time. I can’t properly articulate it but it’s hitting me unexpectedly hard.
Wow thats a shame, even a nice old lady too. These Space Valkyries should have been left in.
They really should have.
I lived, ate, and breathed Star Wars from age 2 until 2005 when RotS finally beat the enthusiasm out of me, and I have NEVER, EVER in all my reading on behind-the-scenes and makings-of heard of these shots. It’s a shame there was no relaunched edit of the original trilogy they could have slipped these in OH FUCKING WAIT THERE’S BEEN LIKE 3 OF THOSE NOW.
Fuck. FUCK. Whoever decided to edit out and bury these needs to french kiss an angle grinder.
I want to see the old lady in the A-Wing. Seriously, it’s like, she’s somebody’s grandma. Some kid in the Outer Rim Territories got greased by the Empire for seeing something she wasn’t supposed to see, and her grandma, the bush pilot, decided “Fuck this, I’m gonna strap on an fighter and make the Empire fucking PAY for the moment it decided to fuck with MY FAMILY.”
DON’T. MESS. WITH. GRANDMA.These are quickly being put into the “always reblog” category.
Whenever there is a war, there are women who are warriors. Then they get erased from history. Happens in real wars and fictional ones alike.
I need a series about these people. Like, now. I mean the Rogue Squadron book series is grand and all, has men and women and aliens and everything, but I don’t think it ever had A-Wing pilots old enough to be grannies.
(Yes I know they’re mostly about the X-Wings but work with me here.)
One of the things the EU got right was the presence of women in the rebel alliance, and not just among the Jedi; they were very present in the fleet, notably in the X-Wing series.
Oh 80’s. You got it so wrong, sometimes …
Don’t worry about that, our lovely friends at Disney pulled their white gloved middle fingers and said “Hey, remember all that EU stuff you all loved and that created so many good characters? IT NEVER HAPPENED!”.
That’s the thing I give the most credit for the Star Trek reboot, they stated specifically that all the stuff since the 1960s to the 1990s of production still happened and this is an alternate universe. Meanwhile Disney wants to continue the original thing and say the expanded stuff THAT DOESN’T DIRECTLY AFFECT THE FILM AND DOESN’T NEED TO BE KNOWN TO UNDERSTAND IT *never happened*. Fuck you, Disney .-.
"bout to ding dong ditch sam pepper"
good to see that this guy is trying to catch the progressive positive attention wave by making fun of sam pepper, just like how he talked shit about nash grier when it was a hot topic
except oops, looks like someone doesn’t actually give a shit and just tries to play his audience like a fiddle
isn’t that awkward, looks like he just rang the doorbell of his own house by mistake
She spent 20 K on a third titty this…………I’m done.go her tbh
HELL YEAH DO WHAT YPU WANT
I’m pretty sure this is fake… Breast implants involve adding more stuff under the fat that is already there, the sternum, however, is almost all skin and a bit of flesh, there’s no fat to raise up. It might be possible, I’m no doctor to be sure, but my cynical side is going “Someone knows photoshop while ‘journalists’ don’t know research.”
Time for some bi positivity! What’s your favorite thing about being bi? or pan or…
Being fluent in vulcan and klingon.

I’m gonna fucking go postal on 4chan I s2g
A woman can’t even think or talk about wanting equal rights/treatment without consequences, and they wonder why we still need feminism smfh
”In a textbook example of why feminism isn’t just a women’s issue”
What a weird take on it. More like ”in a textbook example of males reacting violently and threateningly to put a woman back in her place.”
shoutout to girlcode for being fabulous

looks like death is on vacation again
did someone notice that there are rows of identical cars passing on the street or was it just me?
Yeah, this is a shitty edit to make it look more intense, there’s only like 5 cars passing in total, but they clone the red and white hatchbacks and the white van to triple the amount in the picture.
#this comic went places
La Secretaría de Gobernación inició un proceso administrativo para sancionar a la cantante pop Miley Cyrus, quien durante su show de este martes 16 de septiembre, en la Arena Monterrey, se inclinó para que uno de sus bailarines le golpeara los glúteos con una bandera nacional-
Lo curioso es que es el PAN quién pide la sanción siendo que ellos junto a los otros partidos se limpian el culo diario con ella y la pinche constitución.
i hope they charge her
Basically Miley Cyrus is in trouble with the Mexican government for rubbing a Mexican flag all over her fake butt that she was wearing. She could face a fine, like that matters, seeing as how she has plenty of money. Personally I don’t think it should be illegal to deface a flag, that falls under someone’s right to freedom of speech. But Miley is being extremely disrespectful by doing this in Mexico, and this isn’t the first time she’s accessorized black culture or disrespected people’s culture/national symbols in general.
Mexico’s laws regarding the national flag differ from those in the United States. You can’t use the Mexican flag on shirts, or merchandise, let alone burn it or express your opinion destructively using it. I’m guessing it has a little to do with the nature of the flag’s design; the story of Tenochtitlán, founded by heeding a Mexica oracle, indigenous pride in all of that, and the history of colonization (which, ironically, provided impetus for that flag). Given Mexico’s past of occupation & revolution, laws are strict on certain political expressions—especially when it comes to outsiders.
Miley Cyrus would know nothing or care nothing for understanding any of this. She is of the vampire clan, puro appropriation, whitewash, & disrespect to raise her own profits. I heard she got fined 200K for this, I hope it’s true.
She also did this on Mexican independence day, which adds another layer of disrespect and a lack of understanding for our history and our culture. Also “freedom of speech” means different things in different countries. Just because she has an American sense of entitlement doesn’t give her the right to ignore local laws and customs due to ignorance.
That’d be against the law in Brasil as well. Latin American countries don’t fuck around when it comes to their flags, they have meaning here.
