I accidentally killed someone, you guys, but I was just doing research for an article I’m writing, so that makes it ok. That’s how it works, right?
LTMC: Meanwhile, 16-year olds get prosecuted for manslaughter for texting while driving. But don’t worry, police don’t get special treatment.
GLAAD called the advice columnist’s post on bisexuality
This part infuriates me:
"Bisexual activists have been extremely critical of Slate’s running of the post, though there has been no formal response from Slate despite “multiple inquiries” and the only response GLAAD received was from Prudence herself thanking GLAAD for their note.”
A thank you note? Do they think they can patch this over with a thank you note? A thank you note is what you send your elderly great aunt when she buys you an ugly Christmas sweater, not what you say when civil rights groups point out your flagrantly offensive rhetoric! What the hell Slate?
Yoffe owes the bisexual letter writer and the bisexual community an apology. She needs to make a commitment to doing some kind of bisexual cultural competency training with someone — be it GLAAD or BiNet or BRC. Or she needs to stop giving bisexual people her so-called “advice”.
And where the hell is the Outward (Slate’s LGBT section) staff on this? It is happening on their site on their watch and you’d never know it to look at their section. Are they going to hold their co-workers accountable to write fairly and accurately about the B in LGBT, or does Outward only exist to shove queer content into a little ghetto so Slate can try to sell us a Lexus?
Close to 200 state and local police departments in the United States have been suspended for losing military-level equipment transferred to them by the Pentagon, a new investigation found.
According to the media outlet Fusion, its independent investigation into the Pentagon’s “1033 program,” which equips state and local police departments across the US with excess military equipment, turned up an alarming trend: Not only did many law enforcement agencies fail to comply with the program’s guidelines, they routinely lost dangerous weaponry.
Already, the investigation has found that police departments in Arizona, California, Mississippi, Missouri, Georgia, and others have lost or cannot account for various types of weapons. This list includes M14 and M16 assault rifles, .45-caliber pistols, shotguns, and even vehicles.
"they routinely lost dangerous weaponry"
that is very fucking alarming, who the hell are they being lost to? the same white supremacists bastards killing every one??
As one person on another site noted, “How do you lose a humvee?”
Am I the only one who understands bisexuality to be the attraction to those who identify as cis-genders (strictly male and female) which pansexuality includes those that identify as transgender, gender fluid, and assigning to no gender at all?
Nope, the idea that bisexuality is only limited to cis-gendered individuals is a ridiculously common misconception. Here’s a FAQ.
- Straights stop abusing bisexual partners.
- Straights stop fetishizing bisexual partners.
- Straights can no longer engage in retributive outing of their partners.
- Straights no longer can exercise legal privilege against partners in divorce and breakups.
- Straights stop telling bisexual partners to stay in the closet in mixed-sex relationships.
- Straights stop treating bisexuality in relationships as unstable, untrustworthy, or dishonest.
- Straights take responsibility for their own heterosexism, homophobia, and biphobia in those relationships.
Take heterosexism and heterosexual privilege off the table, and I’ll believe that bisexual people can be equals in a “straight” relationship.
