If we don’t have the freedom to love WHO we want HOW we want, do we really have any freedom at all?
The two questions that matter when it comes to legalizing relationships and marriages:
1) Are they adults?
2) Do they consent to this?
What should not keep them apart:
Someone else being bothered by it.
The minimum wage needs to be a living wage. The business-side discomfort with raising the wage would be more understandable if every sector was hurting. But it isn’t. The rich are richer than ever, corporate profits are at record highs, the stock market is soaring. We don’t need to coddle McDonalds and WalMart by paying their employees less than living wages. But in any case, raising the minimum doesn’t hurt the economy at all. It actually creates more jobs.– Hullabaloo (via azspot)
Having a pet is so weird. Like neither of you speak each other’s language and yet you form some strong bond by rubbing against each other and sleeping together and you might accidentally kick them in the face or step on their tail once in a while but at the end of the day you two are best buddies from entirely different species.
i think about this a lot
Exactly. Human/non human friendships form through touch/body language/cadence
We can do it
This is beautiful
And she is beautiful
Landmark Decision Approves Seismic Airgun Testing for Oil & Gas Drilling Off Atlantic Coast
The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management will allow extensive seismic airgun testing off the Mid- and South Atlantic coasts. Seismic testing could cause major impacts to marine wildlife and the ocean ecosystem, and pave the way for offshore drilling off the Atlantic coast.
– "The lesson many in the West took from the Holocaust is that nationalism is bad; the message Jews took from it is that nationalism is necessary." | AmericaWakieWakie (via america-wakiewakie)
[A]ll nationalism is not inherently bad (see ethnic nationalism), but when connected to the State, as it was in Nazi Germany and is in Zionist Israel, it propagates an irrational sense of superiority over other peoples and ways of life insofar that it is willing to use war and genocide — and all the dehumanization therein — to gain hegemony. [Zionism]… falls victim to the same pitfalls of any other nationalist tendencies which root themselves in the hierarchy of the State, that is, the willingness to use war and genocide — and all the dehumanization therein — to maintain hegemony. This is because it is the transformation of ethnic nationalism into nation-state nationalism, or the inseparability of the two.
We see the ramifications of this in Israel’s deliberate, systematized, state-sanctioned murder of Palestinians.

That was super nice of them.
And now I’m mad that nobody told us we were given cows. Cause that’s really f*cking nice and nobody mentioned it at all.
American media tends to disregard that anyone donates to the US. And then Amurricans complain about money going abroad because “nobody helped the US in our disasters.”
Also, do you know how much a cow costs? O.O
It isn’t just a matter of how much a cow costs, its a matter of considering that Masai life is based around their cattle. Its their wealth, their food, and a significant part of their religion. Here’s a quote from Wikipedia:
“Traditional Maasai lifestyle centres around their cattle which constitute their primary source of food. The measure of a man’s wealth is in terms of cattle and children. A herd of 50 cattle is respectable, and the more children the better. A man who has plenty of one but not the other is considered to be poor. A Maasai religious belief relates that God gave them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that rustling cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs, a practice that has become much less common.”
So its not just “they gave us 14 cows”, its that they gave us something that is very important and significant to them, it is more than just a kind gesture that definitely deserves to be known and its a genuine shame that more people don’t know about it.
