Something I realised, after having to help many international tourists count out their change, is that American coins don’t actually have the number value on them??? Like no wonder all these poor tourists are so confused

"I think this disproportionately affects the African American community because they disproportionately encounter police officers but I think this is a larger problem affecting all Americans, regardless of race," Chestnut said. "There is a fundamental problem with the training of police officers."—attorney Chris Chestnut.

Also I don’t see enough white feminists giving credit to Nicki Minaj beyond the interview of her doing her eyeliner.  Did you guys forget that she recognized and IDed as cisgender, and recognized that vagina does not equal womanhood, when she called herself a “woman with vagina.”  And that asshole talk show host laughed and said “as opposed to a women without one?” and she gave him a the meanest look and said “yes.” We need to gif that.

Hello to the anon who messaged me,

I appreciate that you (what I know you’re trying to do) are making Tumblr a safer place for people of all gender identities! I hope you continue requesting that people think about gender, and especially people who make jokes belittling others’ genders. They need to have a seat and think about why their jokes might upset people, think about the sensitivity that people other than them might have about gender identities; it’s just as you should never assume anything about someone because we as humans really don’t know a lot about others’ lives, enough to make judgements or jokes.. anyways, people will listen if you confront them with kindness! Otherwise people will crawl into their shells which is a shell of defense and of ignorance. So don’t sweat the small stuff, pick your battles, but thank you for being kind and caring, and communicating the constantly changing idea in this world that is gender. Everyone in the world needs you.

"I am profoundly enchanted by the flowing complexity in you."
