21 year old transgender female Islan Nettles died after being savagely beaten to death by her attacker Paris Wilson. According to witnesses, Wilson was shouting homophobic and transphobic slurs before being pulled off the victim by police.
Wilson only received misdemeanor assault charges that were dropped after only spending 10 hours in jail… Today he is walking free in New York City. He has not been charged with murder.
Islan was an aspiring fashion designer who’s dreams were cut short by the same type of hate crimes that have taken the lives of countless other lgbt youth.
Spread the word about this injustice and raise awareness about savage hate crimes like this towards lgbt youth.
beautiful how people tell trans women that DSAB/CASAB/ASAB/CSAB language is appropriative and we should just not use it at all.
like just be transparent and say you just want us to call ourselves male.
"designated" is not appropriative. did you undergo surgery in infancy, that is called "corrective" when really it is a savage form of butchery of intersex bodies, and THEN declared male or female? no? then don’t use "assigned". you were assigned nothing. use designated.
last i checked you were dyadic so its not really your place to decide what is and is not an appropriation of terms used to describe us.
You tell us we can use “designated”, but this is just step one of the Moving Goalposts Mambo. As soon as we start using DSAB, others come along and tell us that since this is obviously based on ASAB and since we have obviously no claim on that terminology, we can’t use anything based on it. The end result of this game is that we can’t talk about ourselves on our own terms at all.
The idea that all assignment is surgical, that assignment == surgery == assignment, is so farcical and paper-thin, so completely inexplicable indefensible on any level that the only reason it survives is that no one expects people who are shoving trans women into a corner should have to defend or explain themselves, because they’re obviously doing the Lord’s work.
The fact is we were all assigned sexes at birth. That’s why the surgeries many trans people have later in life are called surgical re-assignment. We couldn’t be reassigned later if we weren’t assigned a sex at birth.
The assignment procedure for intersex people is immediately brutal and invasive while the one for visually dyadic people is simple and straightforward. But “ASAB” doesn’t lay claim to that brutal butchery. None of us are claiming to have been surgically assigned, just assigned.
It happened to all of us. You don’t get to lie about history, lie about what words mean, and lie about whether or not we’re making a comparison to intersex experiences in order to stop us from using OUR WORDS to talk about OUR SELVES in OUR TERMS.
If Fox thinks that a Muslim can’t write a book about Christianity
would they agree that men can’t write legislation about women?
White Man from San Diego Waves Gun Around Small Children In Confrontation With Police and Is Taken Into Custody Alive.
This white man walked towards the police with a gun pointed at them and they spend half an hour talking to him before they shoot him one time. If he had been a black man, they would’ve shot him dead. Before you police apologists claim this man has a history of mental illness (he does) that’s why the police was lenient, Ezell Ford, a mentally ill black man, was recently killed by the LAPD.
And ya gotta love the “why do you always plays the care card?” assholes that crop up in the comments.
If the shoe fits wear it mother fucker!

Let’s not pretend like the police actions taken this week are anything new. It’s just the most recent manifestation of a problem America has had for a very long time.
it’s annoying because skinny girls never ride for thick or fat girls EVER, never reblog pictures of them or mention shit bout body positivity and uplifting the spirits of thick and fat girls like I never see y’all advocating for curves and extra fat on the thighs or hips or anything but when Nicki goes “Fuck skinny bitches” y’all are suddenly activists for self-image and body positivity? get gone you fakes and liars. Fuck all y’all
Sorry could you repeat that
But Rooney and Trey Songz are the same age
Our bodies are biologically older because of life under STRUCTURAL INEQUALITY.
Scratching and surviving ages your body.
The GOOD news is that melanin keeps us from LOOKING like it.
WE DON’T LOOK LIKE WHAT WE BEEN THROUGH!
We def mentally age faster and we got way worse health due to stress but at least we look good

Police said the 18-year-old man who wrestled a gun away from an officer at Beaverton City Hall and fired off a shot last week was high on mushrooms and had superhuman strength.
Get into this.
An 18-year-old white dudebro high on mushrooms breaks into a government building acting wild as fuck.
Dudebro goes BUCK on several police officers.
During his all-out bucktitude, he manages to break out of handcuffs and grab a police officer’s gun.
HE FIRES OFF A SHOT from this gun.
A gang of the keystone cops finally subdue him and take his precious ofay ass off to be booked.
Let’s imagine how this shit would have gone down if dudebro was black:
"Police officers shot and killed a black man acting erratically in a government building yesterday. They fired a total of 1,169 times. They said he made furtive movements and that his keys looked like a gun. An autopsy revealed that the man was on crack, heroin, and the marijuana, and his blood alcohol was 856 times the legal limit. Police say he has a criminal record dating back to 1956, before even his parents were born."
This is implicit and institutionalized white supremacy in action.
