That story about anti-Semitic attacks by pro-Palestine protesters in France? Totally fabricated. In response to the mass 30,000 person rally for Gaza, far-right pro-Israel Jewish Defense League organized a counter protest called “Keep calm and kill Hamas”, with chants like “”Palestine, we f*ck you in the a**”, and wanted to instigate a confrontation, breaking shit as seen in this video, and then riot police intervened to protect JDL and unleashed tear gas on pro-Palestine protesters claiming ppl were being attacked for being Jewish.

Trans Women As Social Contaminants & Structural Violence Enforced Through Biological Binaries (Storify)

In the wake of another Black Trans Woman being murdered this month, its clear we need a conversation around structural violence and Trans Women of Color. Why are our murder rates so high? What is the nature of that violence? What are the narratives around our death & how do they contribute to that violence? Why do Black Trans Women disproportionately make up the numbers of these murdered women?

The longer storify dealing with all of these questions can be found here but this snapshot of the discussion focuses on misgendering, transmisogynist biology & structural violence.

Members of Congress are living off food stamps for a week to protest Republican cuts. It’s a challenge for them, but GOP cuts would hurt millions of everyday Americans

Why does this not have more publicity. This needs it!

I want a reality tv show where politicians have to live in poverty for a month. They have to live in Government housing, shop with food stamps, and get only a limited amount of money for clothes. Because here, they still have all their trappings, lilke nice cars and thousand dollar suits. I want them in Walmart jeans trying to determine if they can afford a carton of milk. 

If we had that, just watch how quickly things would change

Winona Ryder in high school
"I was wearing an old Salvation Army-shop boy’s suit. I had a hall pass, so I went to the girl’s bathroom. I heard people saying "hey, faggot". They slammed my head into a locker. I fell to the ground and they started to kick the shit out of me. I had to have stitches. The school kick me out, not the bullies.
Years later, I went to a coffee shop in Petaluma, and I ran into one of the girls who’d kicked me, and she said “Winona, Winona, can I have your autograph?” and I said “Do you remember me? I went to Kenilworth. Remember how, in seventh grade, you beat up that kid?” and she said, “Kind of”, and I said “That was me. Go fuck yourself!”
