I’m glad that Ferguson is getting attention, seriously I am, but I haven’t seen ONE post about what is happening over seas. Not even one post about the pictures above. Children are being beheaded and dragged into the streets where they are then shot because their families are Christian. Women are being raped and murdered. Men are being murdered. PEOPLE are dying. It’s a Christian Holocaust. And I haven’t seen anything on Tumblr.
Why aren’t any of you furious about this?! Where’s the “social justice?” ISIS is murdering people who don’t convert to Islam (yes, I know they’re extremists and not all Muslims are like that. Save yourself the rant) but I really want to know why this hasn’t been given the attention it deserves.
Seriously, guys. This is really scary, and we need to raise attention for these people. They so desperately need our prayers and support.
This happening to christian KURDS and yezidis
There has also been over 100 girls under the age of 15 that have been raped by ISIS soldiers and have been forced into committing suicide. The Kurdish Christians and Yezedis that are on the run are begging for a quick death. The ISIS leader has threatened to ‘drown our enemies in their own blood’ which includes non-muslim Kurds, Americans and other countries that have offered to help stop this genocide. What the Kurds are going through is completely tragic, and they’ve already been through so much. So many Kurdish peshmerga have been slaughtered, this is going to turn out to be a total massacre….

“you’re here to learn” I’m here because it’s the fucking law
With a spate of huge stories breaking in the past few weeks, you might not have caught the massive environmental crisis in northern Mexico that began earlier in August.
According to the Associated Press, local politicians claim that Grupo Mexico, a private mining company in Sonora with a troubling track record of hazardous waste violations in Mexico and the U.S., was slow to report a disastrous fault in its leaching ponds, which hold industrial acid used in the mining process. The spill released around 10 million gallons of acid into the Bacanuchi and Sonora Rivers.
Because why go outside (gasp!) and get involved when you can just like and reblog posts from the comfort of your home.
Because sometimes you’re young, and can’t leave your area, or parents won’t let You get involved. so the only thing you can do is spread the message so someone who can help will see it.
"Aaaand made a comic to make people feel bad about themselves, when I’m not doing anything either. Gee that was good use of my time."
why are people starting to make comics on what they cant really saybecause they’re scared…but says it anyways in a drawing,they’re still gonna get backfire and messages on these dumbass shit,this is the same as that dumbass shark drawing
Also, note: online activism, while not as “active” as demonstrations and protests (do you have reliable transportation? Can you take time off from work? Are you physically or mentally able to make the trip and participate? Do you have the finances to be able to do this? are there an protests in your area?), there is now a GENERATION of kids being exposed to these discussions and theories about race and religion and sexuality and gender and ableism, that they were not hearing about previously.
We now have young girls openly celebrating each other and representations of themselves in media, when they’d be tearing each other apart just 10 years ago (Anyone remember mid-2000 fandom culture towards women? Remember “not like other girls”? I do. Shit was terrifying). We have PoC and trans people getting their voices heard when talking about their firsthand experiences.
Using the Internet as a medium, a BUNCH of kids and adults have learned new things about sociology that they wouldn’t have been exposed to otherwise.
All I am saying is, if it wasn’t for this website, I’d still be just as racist and transphobic and misogynistic and classist as I was when I was 13. I’d be a LOT worse. Don’t tell me that online activism doesn’t do anything. It teaches people and is readily accessible to most people and it encourages discussion. There’s always more that can be done, but don’t mark off online activism as lazy or unimportant.
Female privilege is getting to claim a headache to avoid sex.
Female oppression is having to claim physical illness to avoid sex because men won’t take a simple fucking “no” for an answer.
Female oppression is men being so entitled that they think being denied sex is oppressive.
me: stop being racist please
family: listen… liberal hippie trash ….u dont know anything abotu the world….
The community in Ferguson is struggling to come up with the money to keep their kids fed, since school has been cancelled all this time, yet people have donated over $12,000 to the murderer who started all of this in the last 24 hours alone. Think about that. And then donate to the right cause.
