If you’re mad at her, you don’t understand it.  White people are trying to remove themselves from all people of color.  Let me show you why this is true.  You’ve heard of Asian-americans or African Americans or Mexican Americans.  But how about a European American?  Have you ever heard someone say they’re Canadian American? or European American? Probably not.  White people can just call themselves American, even if their ancestry has not been in America for long.  If your great-grandparents moved because of the potato famine, you don’t call yourselves Irish American, you have lived your entire life in the United States, you call yourself an American.  But now, take someone whose ancestry is linked to some of the first slaves in the colonies, and they still call themselves African-American.  Doesn’t matter if they’ve never stepped foot on the continent and share no cultural link, other than pigment, with any society in Africa, they still have to identify with African.  

What’s most infuriating is that even people who are the ultimate Americans: Native Americans.  They were in the Americas while ass backwards Europe was accusing (and burning) women of being witches.  THEY, of all people, shouldn’t have to specify their identity as an American, but NO they have to be labeled with something else.  

Raven Symone is an absolute star.  She has my total respect for standing up like this, and I hope her so much happiness with her girlfriend.  I wish she was still on television, she taught me so much , even if it was all from a disney show

This has to be my favourite thing.

Used MSPaint, so it’s not high quality.
I understand why some people are wary to support abortion 100%.  It’s thanks to prolife propaganda and our inability to separate what is and is not sentient (since we’re hyper-aware and cannot image being non-sentient.)  
Fetuses are not sentient until birth.  They have no rights over a pregnant person’s body at any point and time.  Period.

Fact: Nothing about passing through the birth canal triggers sentience.
Fact: Un-born humans have the same value as born humans, because they will be born and live a human life.
Fact: Un-born children are 100% human and nothing changes to endow them with rights at a specific point such as birth. They’re just as much a human being before as after.
Fact: There is a word for the idea that some humans are more valuable or inherently superior or more deserving of freedom and life than other humans: Discrimination.
If anyone says any of these statements is untrue, they’re lying to themselves.

Fact: It’s called a vagina. It does not stop being a vagina because something may pass through it. It doesn’t become a penis/dildo dock because someone’s in it, so it remains a vagina throughout my life. (Did someone forget about c-sections, btw?) Fact: I would think you’re kind of full of shit, considering even one of your own admitted that while in an amniotic sac, occupants don’t even know they exist.  Fact: People have legal rights once born. Full stop. That’s it. You have to be a born individual to have rights. Furthermore, no born person has rights to take control of someone’s body without continuous consent and consent must always be able to be revoked in order to be consent otherwise it’s called coercion. In the state of pregnancy - if consent to that act can’t be revoked, it’s called reproductive coercion. Fact: Abortion isn’t discrimination, unless the pregnant person is denied one, because then you’re discriminating against their born rights in favor of a fetus. And the United Nations called denial of abortion rights TORTURE. Fact: The stages of life are fetus - infant/neonate - toddler - child - adolescent - adult - elderly. Unborn CHILDREN do not exist.

People use wheelchairs for a lot of different reasons.

Some people use wheelchairs because they are paralyzed and completely unable to walk. That is not the only reason people use wheelchairs, and many wheelchair users have some ability to walk.

Here are some reasons…

'American Horror Story: Freak Show' Shares Fascinating Videos Featuring 'Extra-Ordinary' Cast

FX has shared two mini-docs featuring the “extra-ordinary” cast members of “American Horror Story: Freak Show:” Mat Fraser, who plays “Paul The Illustrated Seal,” and Rose Siggins, “Legless Suzi.”

Watch both the mini-documentaries and learn about the incredible cast of “Freak Show” here.

i appreciate that instead of just using these people for shock value, they are treating them like human beings and telling their stories.
