Take 5 minutes out of your morning/night to educate yourself on this young man LL. The brother was LYNCHED. “Crackertown”, North Carolina. Been gone since the morning of Aug. 29th. Day of his first football game of his senior year. All that hard work in the summer for nothin’. #JusticeForLennonLacy

This needs more light..

A little more information, 17-year-old Lennon Lacy was found hanging from a swingset on August 29th and cause of death was identified as asphyxia due to hanging. Police are calling it a suicide - as in no foul play involved. HOWEVER, Lacy’s mother, while looking at her dead son in the body bag, noticed a lump on his head that she hadn’t seen the day before. It was not noted in the autopsy. He was also found wearing different shoes, not the size 12 gray and neon green Jordan’s he bought a few days before, but a pair of 10.5 white sneakers with the laces removed that his family did not recognize.
Lacy was also in a relationship with a 31-year-old white woman. They were forced to lie about their relationship because in the small North Carolina town of Bladenboro, where 86 Black people were lynched between 1882 and 1968, an interracial relationship between a 17-year-old and 31-year-old caused some “tension”. Lacy’s neighbors were instructed by police to take down a confederate flag and sign that read “N*****s Keep Out’.
Just days after Lacy’s funeral, his grave was desecrated, taking the flowers 40 feet away from his burial site and digging a hole in the plot. (x)
Keep doing research. Keep spreading the word. Don’t forget him. #JusticeForLennonLacy

there are people who are praising ahs for being ~inclusive~ b/c they hired a trans woman to play the role of a trans woman in a series titled “freak show” when (a) they were only looking for a man to play this role and (b) she had to audition as a dude to get it.  they only got a trans woman to play the role of a trans woman by accident and against their best efforts, you can stop lauding them as progressive for calling us freaks now.

Fuck everything like FUUUCKKK

There’s some terms that these young trans people don’t want to hear.

Anxious people can have a hard time staying motivated, period, because their intense focus on their worries distracts them from their goals

why is it that villains and not protagonists are always the ones breaking gender roles hmmmm 

it’s called queercoding and it’s intentional and basically brainwashes kids into having negative associations with those traits

So the fact that entire continents only get one princess to represent them wasn’t enough, these crackers decided to make even those princesses white too. 

But ya know, just like they said about white princess Tiana “its important for girls, regardless of race, to feel represented in movies for kids” which is why we need to change every woc princess to white. Yep. Thats right. White girls are under represented. Change all woc to white. That is how you make young girls feel represented

they had the NERVE to caption the Princess Tiana one with "It’s important for all girls, regardless of race, to feel represented in movies for kids"

….

whiteness is a poison

I love women,” coming from a man, almost always means “I love when women please me,” “I love to imagine fucking women,” “I love to jack off to women’s pornified bodies,” “I love women who don’t challenge me in a way that makes me uncomfortable,” or “I love the idea of women.
