When I talk about #Gunreform, I am also talking about it for our police. These trigger happy people need to have their guns taken away. Not to mention it's becoming difficult to tell the white supremacists from the cops these days.
And no, I'm not going to listen to the "good cop" bullshit. There is no such thing as a good cop so long as they all swear an oath to uphold laws that violate the rights of a large portion of the population.
"Bad cops" are simply put on desk duty or paid leave, only to be found not guilty of a crime after being reviewed by wait for it....other cops.
You want to prove to me that there are "good cops", first show me the "bad cops" actually being kicked off the force and jailed for their crimes. Show me that the white supremacists that are KNOWN to be in the police force are kicked out.
Until there is a massive overhaul of not just the laws that are in place to harm anyone who isn't rich (and most often also white), until the cops stop acting like a bunch of racist assholes as a majority, until they are demilitarized, I will continue to speak up on this.
My own husband has become paranoid to even leave the house during certain times of the month because the cops go after him for existing while not white. I shouldn't be sitting in my car going, "Thank god I'm white...." and thanking my white privilege when I go out to run errands.
My skin color shouldn't = a higher level of safety when dealing with cops.

You want to show me that cops can do good, then show me that they're WILLINGLY changing and demilitarizing. Don't point to a single whistle blower in a sea of silence. Don't point to forced change.

It greets you with a friendly smile and welcomes you inside.
It shows you to so many wonderful places within its abode: portals where you can see images and videos of loved ones and those long past, concert halls that only play the music you wish to hear, social areas where you can get together with and spread your ideas with others.
But the friendly smile and finely tailored suit are nothing more than a disguise, a way for this Eldritch horror to make itself presentable to the public. Strip away its mask and suit and you are exposed to the abyss, its home where only the bravest or most depraved dare venture.

Dear parents of trans kids,
To those of you who are struggling to understand what is going on, who feel that you've received the news that your child is trans like it came out of left field, to those of you who are searching for answers, I want to give you some advice. 1/19
You may feel like your kid has just sprung this on you out of nowhere, you may feel upset or hurt because they're saying (in your eyes) that they are not the child you have been raising. 2/19
You may be asking what you've done wrong or what you've done to deserve a trans child. You may be feeling embarrassed because your own child is now telling you that you've been referring to them in the wrong way for however long it's taken for them to come out. 3/19

Dear anti-trans parents who claim that their children "stopped being trans" because you didn't support it/convinced them otherwise:

Your child is most likely still trans, but they've come to learn that you cannot be trusted and that LYING IS SAFER than telling you the truth.
While some children might be trying to figure out their gender and realize they're cis, if a child comes out to you and you tell them you don't support them and make their living situation hostile and toxic, they will quickly learn that your love is conditional.
Your child will learn that what they are feeling and who they are is so anathema to you that if they want your love they need to lie and pretend to be something they're not.
They will internalize this pain and distrust.
They will learn that lying = safety.

Next time I have someone asking why people don't seek out medical care until it's almost too late I'm just going to bury them in all the doctors bills and collections notices.
If we keep up with the issues we go broke or we are sent to collections, so we're stuck playing this fucked up game of how long can I put this off?

Harvey wound up in the hospital because if this, and already he's in the hole from paying the follow up doctors.
People shouldn't have to be forced to decide between paying bills, having food to eat, or healthcare. People shouldn't be having to resort to GoFundMe for medical care!

Ok, let's break this down (now that I'm on a computer and able to take a screenshot and not RT the fucker. A thread
First off:
WELFARE DOESN'T EXIST! AT BEST YOU CAN GET TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families). PEOPLE DON'T "LIVE ON" WELFARE LIKE THIS ASSHOLE IS CLAIMING.
(thenation.com/article/the-am…)

What most people call "welfare" is actually TANF, and the emphasis on that one is on the word TEMPORARY. As in you can't "live off of it" like people like Kirk claim. The "welfare" that many of them think of ended back in 1996, when I was a freshman in high school.

So I want to discuss the topic of #ROGD that is being mentioned in #ROGDWEEEK2018.

I realized I was trans when I was around 8-10 years old. Until puberty hit, I was able to justify the difference between my body and my brother's body as us just being born different. 1/
But when puberty hit, it was like everything about myself betrayed who I was. I was growing breasts, I started my period, I started looking more feminine.

Up until my first period, I was able to justify and deal with being trans. When it happened, dysphoria hit with it. 2/
I didn't have any of the signs or symptoms listed today for childhood gender dysphoria, so by the thoughts in #ROGD I would have had rapid onset. It didn't matter that I knew I was trans for a year or more before my first period, my GD was "rapid" and started with puberty. 3/
