Anonymous said: A white person wearing a shirt that says "hands up, don't shoot" isn't necessarily implying that they would ever have to say it. There are white people protesting in ferguson, and there are hundreds of thousands of non-blacks on our side all over the world. I think they should be allowed to show their support. I'm a white-passing person, but the fact that I don't look like I'm black wouldn't keep me from wearing it. Anyone can be on our side, even white people

justice4mikebrown:

White people can, and are encouraged to show support.

White people should not wear that shirt.

I am so fucking tired of trying to code my fucking website. Since I don’t code it’s just all trial an error from google searches and nothing I have tried for the past three fucking days has worked and I just…UGH.

Who knows how to code and wants to help me? Pretty please?? :)

Acephobia in the LGBT+ Community from the documentary (A)sexuality. 

It is just…so fucking weird how threatened people feel when it comes to Asexuality.  I still can’t wrap my mind around it.

I’m so happy this post is being reblogged by LBGT+ people who aren’t asexual. I keep on reading posts by non-ace LGBT+ people of support to the ace community, and of being stunned by this reaction by a movement which should know better than to judge. AND THAT MAKES THIS ACE SO FREAKING HAPPY. The woman in the first photo expresses my sentiment. I know I belong in the queer/LGBTQIA movement. I want to belong. But I just don’t know if I’m welcome. I’m so happy that there are so many people on Tumblr who do not fall into the catagory of outright refusal of asexuality.

I know not a lot of people understand asexuality. And I know there’s confusion about it, about our experiences, and about how we fit in the movement. But let’s talk about this. Let’s have this conversation.

I mostly don’t delve into the ace tags, but I hear there’s a lot of ace-hate that and I really don’t get it.  I don’t understand how asexuality is threatening.

You know what I (as a queer ace-spectrum person) find most threatening?  Getting unwanted sexual unwanted advances from both queer and straight people. I’ve gotten them from people of all spectrums and it always makes me profoundly uncomfortable, and often unsafe.  It just boggles my mind how people are upset by the concept of asexuality.  That’s like getting really mad at someone who isn’t hungry.  What’s the point?  Just shut up eat your own sandwich. (And stop chewing on me.)

Wow, the fuck the people in those images.

Nobody has the right to disrespect anybody else’s sense of self. It may not be for, you but that does not give you the right to be an asshole.

We really need to push more for LGBTQIA+ to be a standard, instead of just LGBT, especially considering that even the B and T are already invisible in much of the community.

Not supporting some of us = not supporting all of us.

Not supporting some of us = not supporting all of us.

It really, really does bear repeating.

I couldn’t be further from ace, but for serious.

If we’re not in this together, we’re not in this at all.

This makes me so angry. I have friends who are ace, and they are just as much a part of the queer community as I am.

We need to embrace asexuality and treat it with the respect that it deserves.

“I had no idea what I was taking on, how rarely performed this was,” said Ms. Dwan, eating pasta a few hours before a performance here. “Many people have tried to do it and given up; the text is almost unlearnable, the physical stress is unbearable, the mental stress even worse. I meditate three times a day, I run, I am seeing a chiropractor, I have a hernia from pushing the sound out, my digestive system is affected. It has really taken its toll, but the rewards of speaking that gorgeous text are very great.”

Guh, I LOVE Not, I. I would LOVE even more to see it live. Props to Lisa Dwan. 

Erica Whyman, deputy artistic director of the RSC, said there was an ‘urgent need to understand why there are still gender imbalances in the theatre’. She added research undertaken by Tonic would be an ‘effective and multi-disciplinary call to action’.”

Simple, beautiful & ad-free. Read the manifesto:

Hey! Have you crowd funded before? Yeah? Then you know how hard it is!! I propose a deal: to my followers out there who are currently crowd funding projects (or are planning to crowd fund in the near-ish future), I will donate to your campaigns if you donate to mine! That’s right! Dollar for dollar. 

So here’s mine! Reblog this, donate to it, and send me your campaign (or send it to me later, once you have one).

Or…..just donate! Or…..if you’re strapped for cash, just reblog and pass this information along to your friends! Because, who doesn’t feel good when they help ART?:)

I’ve decided to attempt to learn how to code!

Or at least to learn basic coding. I’m making a website via squarespace but there are so many cool things I want to do with it that I can’t without knowing how. I doubt I’ll get to the level I need to to do all those things, but at least I’ll be less likely to fuck up my website if I learn some stuff. 

I’m using http://www.codecademy.com/. It is super user friendly so far! People who know how to code: what do we think of this site? Yay or nay?
