Bleeding Profoundly

I am; a parent, a trans man, a polyamorous pansexual, married to a man, in love, living with chronic pain and fatigue, fighting depression and anxiety, an insomniac, an artist, a dreamer, looking for happiness, a feminist, an amateur philosopher, politically active and aware, interested in serious debates about any and all serious topics, following my own code of honor, otherkin, honest, thinking of baking something, a lazy poster, extremely tired, a fan of facts and information in general, and about a thousand other things...

Tony Abbott Questioned by Newtown High Students
[x]

The fact that a group of year 9 students can blunder the countries PM is pretty telling.

Tony abbot from living under his own ears

Female Student: “Why are you so against legalizing gay marriage?”
Abbott: “I’m all for people having loving permanent relationships”
Female Student: “Becaise I have a lot of friends who are gay and it’s sad to think they can never get married just because they’re attracted to the same sex.”
Abbott: “I see where this is going. Can we have a blokes question?” 

"Why do you think following in Howard’s footsteps and turning back asylum seekers is a good idea?"
Abbott: “Do you know how many boat people drowned last year-“
"Too many!" 

Abbott: “I’ll allow one more question”
Student: “Do you know it’s a human right to seek aslyum in another county?”
Abbott: [laughs] “That’s the same question as before. Another question!”

Just wanna say all these students cheered their peers when they asked these questions, and Abbott had nothing to say. 

These kids were, what, 16? And yet I’d trust them running my country more than this dibshit. 

#actually year 9’s are 14 or 15#so even more of a point#he got fucking slayed by a bunch of 14 year olds

Let’s have a blokes question…LETS HAVE A FUCKING BLOKES QUESTION!? No matter how many times you say you aren’t sexist, it’s little gems like this that prove you are.

repeat after me everyone: respecting the basic human dignity of oppressed people is more important than having a philosophical discussion about how anger is supposedly the same thing as hatred and how much better the world would be if we were all just nice to each other!!!!!!

because “don’t fight hate with hate” only means so much when you shout it in the faces of the oppressed, but barely whisper it in the direction of the oppressors

can we talk about how this fucking pbs show aimed at little kids easily talked about how anxiety is stressful but normal

Ok no but can we talk about this entire episode? 

It was called April 9th, and it was actually a response to the 9/11 attacks. It didn’t talk about the attacks themselves, but rather focused on teaching kids to deal with the all of the emotions that they might be feeling as a result. They set up a situation that might evoke similar emotions in children: a massive fire at the school.

Arthur’s dad was in the fire, so (as you can see above), Arthur is constantly worried about his dad’s safety.

Sue Ellen is grieving because her journal, which contained a huge amount of precious memories, was destroyed in the fire. Muffy is confused why she can’t just cheer Sue Ellen up by giving her a new journal.

Buster wasn’t at school that day, and feels confused and guilty that he isn’t sad about the fire like the other kids. He then befriends the school janitor, who has to retire due to an injury that, at his age, is pretty serious.

Binky actually saw the flames, and is constantly traumatized by the event. He doesn’t tell anyone because he feels like he would lose his tough-guy reputation if he admitted that he was scared.

The episode teaches kids that all of these emotions are perfectly normal and natural, that there’s not one right way to feel, and that even if it takes a while, things are going to be okay.

The thing that makes this show so great, in my opinion, is that it knows that kids are intellegent and strong enough to deal with these things if you present them in the right way. It doesn’t hide them, it doesn’t sugar coat them, it just presents them in a way that children can understand and shows them how to deal with them.

#Arthur was my childhood jam and really stuff like this is one of the reasons why

There are only a few episodes that I distinctly remember and this one tops the list. My father is a chef and used to do a lot of catering (like Arthur’s dad) at around the age I would watch this. I was actually worried when I saw his dad in the kitchen fire.

for those who dont understand

heteronormativity and cisnormativity are the reason queer people have to come out

we are automatically assumed cis and straight unless we explicitly say otherwise, which shouldn’t happen

no one should be assumed anything until they explicitly say otherwise

it also makes being queer seen as alien and unnatural

there you go theres your crash course on hetero/cisnormativity

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.

Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.

Scarleteen is invaluable.

And Scarleteen needs your help.

During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.

This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support. 

This is devastating.

If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.

Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.

And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.

…but the rabbit gets away because you know you can’t kill animals in a movie, just the women…

Drawing perspective is considered one of the hardest things in art, except the mistakes usually done are pretty much always the same and can be avoided with a little care.

Well this is pretty simple to…

So I’m in canada visiting my inlaws and on television there are commercials that sound like they belong in Nightvale episodes.

"You love this game… ….more than your own mother"
"Let’s do this! Let’s do that!"

etc. etc, etc….

How to tell if what you’re about to say is incredibly offensive…

If you are about to tell a joke or say something you feel might rub people the wrong way but still believe to be true you might feel the need to preface that statement or joke with a disclaimer. 

That feeling that you need a disclaimer is how you can tell… 

If you feel the need to say “I’m not racist.. but” before something you say, you know deep down that what you’re about to say is incredibly racist, and you should know that if you say it, and mean it, you are racist, no matter whether or not you say “I’m not racist… but” before it. 
If you feel the need to say “I’m not racist” then whatever you are actually trying to say after it is about 99.99999% certain to be incredibly offensive and incredibly racist. 

The same applies if you feel the need to say “I’m not homophobic or anything… but” before something you say, because whatever follows that preface is without a doubt going to be incredibly homophobic. 

If you write an article and mean it to be a bit of harmless fun and you write a disclaimer before it saying it’s not to be taken seriously and that it’s just a joke, then deep down you know that what you’ve written is in line with a certain form or certain forms of bigotry. 
(Been seeing a lot of sexist drivel being posted with these lately.)

Basically, if what you say comes with disclaimer on how these opinions, jokes or statements may “sound” bigoted, but really aren’t, because you’re not a bigot, then these opinions, jokes or statements sound bigoted because they are bigoted, and that makes you a bigot, no matter how much you try to tell yourself the opposite.

Pre-school-to-Prison Pipeline: Studies confirm the dehumanization of Black children
April 6, 2014

Although African-Americans constitute only 13 percent of all Americansnearly half of all prison inmates in the U.S. are black. This startling statistic has led the United Nations Human Rights Committee to publicly criticize the U.S. for its treatment of African-Americans. A number of recent studies and reports paint a damning picture of how American society dehumanizes blacks starting from early childhood.

Racial justice activists and prison abolition groups have long argued that the “school-to-prison” pipeline funnels young black kids into the criminal justice system, with higher rates of school suspension and arrest compared with nonblack kids for the same infractions. More than 20 years ago, Smith College professor Ann Arnett Ferguson wrote a groundbreaking book based on her three-year study of how black boys in particular are perceived differently starting in school. In “Bad Boys: Public Schools in the Making of Black Masculinity,” Ferguson laid out the ways in which educators and administrators funneled black male students into the juvenile justice system based on perceived differences between them and other students.

Today this trend continues with record numbers of suspensions as a result of “zero-tolerance” school policies and the increasing presence of campus police officers who arrest students for insubordination, fights and other types of behavior that might be considered normal “acting out” in school-aged children. In fact, black youth are far more likely to be suspended from school than any other race. They also face disproportionate expulsion and arrest rates, and once children enter the juvenile justice system they are far more likely to be incarcerated as adults.

Even the Justice Department under President Obama has understood what a serious problem this is, issuing a set of new guidelines earlier this year to curb discriminatory suspension in school

But it turns out that negative disciplinary actions affect African-American children starting as early as age 3. The U.S. Department of Education just released a comprehensive study of public schools, revealing in a report that black children face discrimination even in preschool. (That preschool-aged children are suspended at all is hugely disturbing.) Data from the 2011-2012 year show that although black children make up only 18 percent of preschoolers, 42 percent of them were suspended at least once and 48 percent were suspended multiple times.

Consistent with this educational data and taking into account broader demographic, family and economic data for children of various races, broken down by state, is a newer study released this week by the Annie E. Casey Foundation that found African-American children are on the lowest end of nearly every measured index including proficiency in math and reading, high school graduation, poverty and parental education. The report, titled Race for Results, plainly says, “The index scores for African-American children should be considered a national crisis.”

Two other studies published recently offer specific evidence of how black children are so disadvantaged at an early age. One research project, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, examined how college students and police officers estimated the ages of children who they were told had committed crimes. Both groups studied by UCLA professor Phillip Goff and collaborators were more likely to overestimate the ages of black children compared with nonblack ones, implying that black children were seen as “significantly less innocent” than others. The authors wrote:

We expected … that individuals would perceive Black boys as being more responsible for their actions and as being more appropriate targets for police violence. We find support for these hypotheses … and converging evidence that Black boys are seen as older and less innocent and that they prompt a less essential conception of childhood than do their White same-age peers.

Another study by researchers at UC Riverside found that teachers tended to be more likely to evaluate black children negatively than nonblack ones who were engaged in pretend play. Psychology professor Tuppett M. Yates, who led the study, observed 171 preschool-aged children interacting with stuffed toys and other props and evaluated them for how imaginative and creative they were. In an interview on Uprising, Yates told me that all the children, regardless of race, were “similarly imaginative and similarly expressive,” but when their teachers evaluated those same children at a later time, there was a discriminatory effect. Yates explained, “For white children, imaginative and expressive players were rated very positively [by teachers] but the reverse was true for black children. Imaginative and expressive black children were perceived as less ready for school, as less accepted by their peers, and as greater sources of conflict and tension.”
