Victor White suicide ruling leads to public scrutiny

black-american-queen:

OK. I KNOW YOU ARE ALL WORRIED ABOUT FERGUSON BUT CAN YOU FOR A SECOND LOOK AT THIS VICTOR WHITE CASE?

NOTHING ADDS UP.

APPARENTLY AFTER BEING SEARCHED TWICE (while handcuffed) HE PRODUCED A GUN AT THE POLICE STATION AND SHOT HIMSELF. HIS DEATH HAS BEEN RULED A SUICIDE.

YOU NEED TO SPREAD THIS TUMBLR. BECAUSE THIS IS BULLSHIT AND THE COPS ARE COVERING IT UP.

Over the last few (inactive on my part) months, I’ve passed some great milestones across my various forms of social media! As a way to thank all of you loyal followers and relative newcomers, I’m going to be hosting a giveaway of some silhouettes from my overstuffed portfolio!

I will be picking 3 winners from across all of the entries. Each winner will get to pick one set (or two individual characters) from my previous silhouette pieces.

Just like and/or reblog to enter!*

A full list of the characters available (including some that I’ve never posted!) will be sent to the winners. Please note that the pieces in the giveaway will be sent “as is” — depending on which characters the winner selects, some pieces are samples or test runs and may differ slightly from the final designs posted on the blog.

*For extra chances to be selected, you can also get an additional entries by commenting on the giveaway posts on my Twitter and DeviantArt  pages. In order for those submissions to count, you must also be following me on those sites!

The giveaway will end Sept 8th and winners will be notified through their inbox, so make sure they’re open! Winners will have 48 hours to respond before another winner will be selected.

Feel free to drop me a message with any questions regarding the giveaway or anything else!

Boost! Should have the posts on Twitter and DeviantArt by tomorrow for those interested in multiple entries.

Someone is making transphobic edits on Wikipedia from inside the U.S. House of Representatives

gaywrites:

Wikipedia has blocked all computers from the House of Representatives from editing any of their content — because someone with an IP address from the House has been trolling the site with transphobic edits. 

Since earlier this week, comments have been appearing misgendering Laverne Cox, using slurs on pages about trans people, changing the definition of gender identity disorder, and citing notorious asshole Gavin McInnes in descriptions of trans people and transphobia. Wikipedia editors were forced to intervene when the person (or people) continued to make edit after edit.

This is the third time THIS SUMMER the House has been blocked from Wikipedia for “disruptive editing” by anonymous users. 

The person using the IP address responded — without revealing their identity — that the malicious edits were in fact “official business” endorsed by a member of the House. Their changes, they said, were intended to bring “fairness” to the discussion.

“There’s nothing illegal about editing Wikipedia to promote official business that has been explicitly authourized [sic] by the Representative,” the userwrote.

“When you have other Representatives trying to push for laws such as [the Employment Non-Discrimination Act],” the user continued, “or when you have the [European Union] using neocolonialist methods to impose transgenderism on the nation of Georgia through a visa agreement, it’s all the more important.” …

After this most recent banning, the outlawed anti-trans user wrote, “Blocked because I disagreed with the trans-lobby? These days, If I complain about a man using the womyn’s restroom then I’m cosidered transphobic and get called a TERF. This has been happening a lot lately here in the halls of Congress. If feeling uncomfortable about some creeper coming into the same bathroom as me is considered transphobic, then why is transphobia considered a bad thing? I wouldn’t be surprised if the Admin who banned this IP is trans. If she is a real woman, then she should should be following real Feminists like Julie Bindel, not sellouts to the trans lobby like Anita Sarkeesian. People need to understand that transgenderism is being promoted by the Patriarchy to diminish the experiences of real womyn.”

Our elected officials, my friends.
