    Tanaiste Joan Burton has defied the UN by saying that majority votes can be used to deny human rights, just two day after Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald had withdrawn the same argument after the UN Human Rights Committee told Ireland that it was “totally unacceptable”.

    Today’s Irish Independent reports that in the Dail, Joan Burton ruled out an abortion referendum being held in the lifetime of this Government, and gave as her reason that “as democrats everyone must accept the will of the people”.

    But just this Tuesday, in Geneva, the UN Human Rights Committee had told Ireland that this was a “totally unacceptable” reason to deny Irish women their right to an abortion consistently with the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

    The UN Human Rights Committee told Ireland that human rights cannot be denied by a majority vote in Parliament or in a referendum, and that the whole point of international human rights law is to avoid the tyranny of the majority.

    ignoring the fact that piper kerman identifies herself as bisexual so that you can drool about how “not everybody needs labels!!!!” is bisexual erasure, period

    the label of “bisexual” needs support and visibility to lift the stigma surrounding bisexuality and to reinforce its legitimacy. don’t take that away from us just because you think it’s more poetic or philosophical or whatever to not have labels

    first of all, I am white so i have absolutely zero place talking about slavery or anything in this area, but I couldn’t help pointing out that, oh the Chinese mastered this before us? Oh well that makes total sense, that totally explains why

    The police are up to 28 more times likely to stop and search POC rather than white people

    This blog exists

    All of these statistics exist, including:

    Oh holy fuck, what’s that? there’s been an entire STUDY? ON RACIAL INEQUALITY AND WAGE GAPS? Gee i wonder which race won ‘most fucking pandered to’… i bet you can’t guess (hint, it’s us. it’s white people)

    Not to mention that racial minorities are more likely than white students to be suspended from school, to have less access to rigorous math and science classes, and to be taught by lower-paid teachers with less experience.

    Dude I can only assume that because you are protesting this that you are white. And you should be ashamed of yourself. White people fucking rule the word. We are the common beauty standard. We are EVERYWHERE. Give me one popular, generally released romcom that didn’t feature two attractive white leads.

    Fucking face it. We were given a dirty level up card before we ever started the game. It’s our duty to be aware of that.


  6. Anonymous said: Wait, didn't slavery exist before white people?

    what the fuck exactly is going on with this ask

    like it doesn’t matter??? We are still responsible for the inherently racist and prejudiced culture that we control to this day and it is our responsibility to be constantly aware of this.

    Like because of use, kids are growing up with entirely skewed notions of what nation discovered what, etc.

    like who gives a shit if ‘slavery existed before white people’

    we fucking MASTERED IT

    we became the BEST AT SLAVERY

    a little boy in an iron man helmet tries to shoot one of the rampaging suits with his lil toy flight stabilizers

    in spider-man 2

    a little boy puts on his spiderman suit and stands up against the rhino

    that’s great for all the little boys in the theater, but you know what I want?

    i want a little girl to help the heroes

    i want a six-year old redhead to kick nat’s gun to her

    i want a twelve-year old with braces and a lisp to shake cap back to consciousness

    i want a nine-year old latina girl to take clint by the hand and walk him down unfamiliar streets back to the main fight

    i want a sixteen-year old black girl to kick an enemy in the back of the knees to save sam wilson

    because girls are sitting in that audience too

    and they deserve to see that

    Also, whites didn’t end slavery. Abraham Lincoln didn’t care about Black people and slavery until he knew that slavery was a very important economic part of the South, so he threatened to end slavery if they didn’t surrender because then the Confederate states would crumble, which is mostly what happened after they had to surrender. Slavery wasn’t necessary over after the Emancipation Proclamation, either. He only freed the slaves in the South. Sharecropping happened so after, which is basically slavery but only with drowning in debt so the Black families could become dependent on the white folk they’re on the land and work for.

    Goodbye honky.

    For whites that were still throwing their shit in the streets in the early 1900s. YOU OWN NOTHING but the Manifest Destiny BS and Racism.
