5th Graders in North Carolina influenced to accept Indians as Mascots, Redskins, objectified relics, owned fetishes

This bullshit hurts our children! But just a mascot right? No big deal. Little Indian kids don’t mean shit to you guys as long as you can keep some racist names and logos the same.

Reason why I hate cats. They’re so scary.

  #Reasons why I hate babies #they do this and everyone blames the pet

THE BABY SMACKED THE CAT WHY ARE YOU BLAMING THE ANIMAL

All the fucking time. People have their pets euthanized because they did something to their kid who fucking hit them or pulled on their tail or got in their face or something. Here’s a better idea: WATCH YOUR FUCKING KID WHEN THEY’RE AROUND ANIMALS. Okay thanks.

^^boldedBut this? Well, that’s how kids learn, isn’t it?they do bad shit, they get bad shit happening right back.I’ll bet that little brat won’t touch the cat again right?
and OP is a fucking prick for trying to blame the cat for defending itself when the kid SMACKED THE CAT IN THE HEAD.
That shit HURTS for a little cat. I’d lash back too.
Asshole.

teach your kid to respect animals, because animals, unlike most humans will not hesitate to kick your ass if you treat them like shit..

animals are great

What kind of shitty parent makes a baby that treats a cat that way

Let’s blame the parents. The cat and the baby are the innocent parties here

Yay this again. If the parent doesn’t teach the child to respect the animal, then they have to learn the hard way. Simple things are simple.

If one cares to look closely, it is clearly obvious the kid is upset and crying at the beginning of this partial video and then strikes the cat. 
What happened in the previous 30 seconds ??

It doesn’t matter whether the child was crying or not. I don’t blame the infant OR the beautiful feline. I blame the irresponsible parents who were clearly just sat there filming this rather than taking care of their baby and their companion animal. I bet they shouted at the cat when this was all over rather than reprimanding their child, like they should. 

Reblogged for the comments. 
Why the fuck were the parents filming an obviously distressed child and unsettled cat, instead of looking after the animals (both human and non-human) in their care. AND JESUS if my kid had just punched a cat and then been clawed by it the camera would be out of my hands so fucking fast as I tried to sort them both out, not standing there following the action! 
Feeling for both the kid and the cat right now. Both are clearly stressed and in pain, and their guardian is like LOL. Hope the kid learned a lesson and the cat was treated kindly.

plus sized models are JUST as unrealistic as skinny models.

They have been elongated, their cellulite has been brushed out, waists pinched and hips widened and rounded.

It makes us think “I’m not even plus sized pretty” when NO-ONE IS.

They aren’t being forward thinking.

They aren’t embracing body positivity

They’ve just creating another unrealistic standard for women to hate themselves for.

So, i read this awful article using bathroom “scare tactics,” which was claiming that trans women are potential rapists. “Men” who dress as women to gain access to women only spaces and force them self on women. This really upset me and i had a bit of a Twitter rant. They were read by others and i was urged to post them in other media also, so i am posting them here. (Edited together in easy reading format from top to bottom.)

This is the link in the first tweet about how there are no cases of a trans woman attacking a cis woman in public restrooms: Link 1.

This is the link in the second tweet about the cases where trans people are assaulted in the bathroom by cis people: Link 2.

if you’re cis and you follow me i’m gonna need you to reblog this

don’t care if you’re cis or trans, this is important.

Animal liberation is the most difficult liberation struggle of all because speciesism is primordial and universal. Speciesism is arguably the first of any form of domination or hierarchy and it has spread like a deadly virus throughout the entire planet and all of human history. The problem is not limited to Western culture or to the modern world, such that there is some significant utopian past or radical alternative to recover. The problem is the human species itself, which but for rare exceptions is violent, destructive, and imperialistic. Universally, humans have vested interests in exploiting animals and think they have a God-given right to do so. To change these attitudes is to change the very nerve center of human consciousness. That is our task – no more and no less.
