Want to go to Planned Parenthood in D.C.? You’ll have to run the anti-choice gauntlet first.
This is what it looks like when clinics don’t have buffer zones.

They’re sidewalk harassers, sidewalk bullies, whatever else, but they are no where near counsellors. Counsellors are non-judgmental, non-biased, empathetic listeners, that is NOT what those people are. - Paige

If the clinic employees begin exercising their 2nd Amendment right to bear arms and carried AR-15’s or AK-47’s along with them, on public streets, that would present an interesting conundrum to the gun loving right wing, would it not? I bet it would stop all the harassment cold too.

There are some abortion providers that do carry guns at all times, wear bulletproof vests to work, hire bodyguards, wear masks into the clinic so protestors can’t identify them, go in the back door, change up their driving routes every day, check under their cars daily for bombs, etc. That’s how serious this is, and that’s why it’s dangerous to take the protestors at face value, even if they seem peaceful. You don’t know who they’re hiding in the crowd.

As the debate on same-sex marriage continues in Western nations, including the United States, Thailand could become the first country in Asia to legalize gay marriage. Thailand is known for its liberal acceptance of sexuality, but the draft same-sex marriage law is not without controversy. This is a traditional Thai wedding, except there is no groom. There are two brides. This ceremony is only symbolic because Thailand, like all of Asia, does not recognize same sex marriage. But a draft law later this year could change that and make Thailand the first Asian nation to legalize gay marriage. Nonetheless, Arisa Thanommek and her partner Pacharee Hungsabut say they were not interested in waiting. “We…we [will] not wait. Because we [are] ready.  Our family is ready,” she said

I noticed that women of color are one of the biggest spearheads of recognizing LGBTQ relationships. Happy Pride Month to Thailand!

It’s time to start planning for the holidays already!

Our hope is to collect some really good tasty treats, toys and squishy beds for homeless cats in shelters this holiday season! From now until December, we will be collecting items to mail to non-profit shelters so that homeless kitties can have the best holiday ever! Having comforting items while in a shelter can make a huge difference in the life of a homeless animal. A shelter’s main priority is keeping the cats healthy, so a shelter cat getting something special is really rare!

We have an Amazon Wishlist if you would like to pick out an item for a shelter kitty! We will also donate money to the shelters we mail gift boxes to! And we will throw in some of our handmade cat toys and plushes!

The number of places we will donate to will depend on how many gifts we can gather. The locations are also TBD, but you can always recommend places by contacting us admin@thetinytabby.com <3

Looking for gifts for your human companions? Our store donates half of each purchase to cat shelters and rescue groups. Thank you for your support, and remember to support your local shelters!!

Morning Reblog! Thank you SO SO MUCH to the awesome people that bought some things off of our list already!

I have donated toys to shelters before, and they thanked me so much because at that time the kitties has ZERO toys! It was so sad! I hope this idea turns out to be a success :)

Check out the list here.   <3

Bernice Bing (1936 - 1998)
A San Francisco native, Chinese American, artist, lesbian, community activist—Bernice Bing, was a bridge between many worlds. She came of age during the Beat era and entered the San Francisco arts landscape in the 1960s with her paintings, which synthesize abstract modernist painting with Chinese calligraphy.

I think, at this point in our world, we’ve got a really confused idea of the way that gender and sexuality work and we’ve created this really superfluous binary in the way we think about gender. I guess I identify as queer because I don’t identify with that. [x]

Rally held after transgender woman attacked in Bushwick, Brooklyn

ifartgolddust:

this happened to my sister, her name is Kimy. Please pray for her, send her healing energy, anything you can do to help her pull through. Since this story she has woken up, she can breathe on her own and talk, but get’s agitated very easily and cannot make decisions.

And for all you assholes out there who say shit like, “why do we need trans rights?” and all that other bullshit, fuck you. This is why. This is why the conversation about trans women needs to be had. This is why people who are not trans women need to stop trying so fucking hard to steer the goddamn conversation about us. Fuck you. You don’t know shit about us until you have lived our lives, dealt with the bullshit we deal with on a daily basis, had to fear for your fucking life every time you leave your front door. I don’t give a fuck where you live, who you are, who you’re related too, etc. This is the reality. This shit happens every fucking day.

Brutal video of police beating may breathe new life into Hong Kong protests

 Hong Kong police escorted an activist in plastic handcuffs from a protest staging ground of the “Umbrella Movement” early Wednesday morning to a dark area of the streets and allegedly beat him while the activist laid on the ground, recently released video footage from the local TVB news channel shows.

The incident was captured on film when police were clearing a road tunnel where protesters gathered. The video, captured from a distance, shows officers kicking Ken Tsang-chui, a social worker and member of the pro-democracy Civic Party. The activist was among 45 protesters who were arrested and subjected to pepper spray.

More people have taken to the streets | Follow micdotcom
