1 in every 106 white males aged 18 yr or older are incarcerated
1 in every 36 Latino males aged 18 yr or older are incarcerated
1 in every 15 Black males aged 18 yr or older are incarcerated
This. is. a. crisis.
a rate far outpacing that of general population growth and crime rates
Who told all these cis women that solidarity with trans women meant “doing everything exactly as you did before, except with occasional verbal nods to trans women being human”?
If you ever went to michfest while aware that trans women are banned, you are NOT my friend; you knowingly collaborated with people who hate me. Do not slink up and flirt with me as if I don’t know what you did, and what you clearly think of me.
If you won’t stop supporting people (buying their albums, going to their shows, promoting their work) who dehumanize trans women, if you don’t stop making jokes about how penises are gross, if you don’t stop laughing at transmisogynistic quips on TV, you actually, truly, deeply do not care about us, and it shows. We can tell.
Sometimes in daily life I like to pretend I’m a time traveler from late medieval Europe and I’m just fucking amazed at my luxurious life
Let me tell you, 14th c me is REALLY impressed with modern me’s easy access to pepper and cinnamon
"you have multiple purple garments? you must be a person of some note"
"these chairs are fantastically luxurious"
"I’ve never seen so much salt in one place"
I am going to start playing this game.

You dont think it’s noteworthy that the only trans people who get to be the cute couples, who get the love and the best wishes from the “allies” of the world, are the ones who are economically and racially able to transition into Barbies and Kens? While poor, black, indigenous, and latina trans feminine people are the targets for violence that get no sympathy or support except in death on TDoR?
Look, idk exactly who paid for what or what their economic situation is. But when they’re white and get surgeries paid in their teens and all the news clips show them on boats and big ass houses, I made some assumptions. Being able to have all your transition-related medical costs paid for in your teens, especially SRS, is usually economic privilege. But, regardless, the effect is the same. When it comes to trans women, allies only care about the pretty passing skinny white ones that dont make them uncomfortable.

Not all of them have been healthy, though.
"We’ve had 3 out of 24 that, for all practical purposes, were normal but developed as they grew older some kind of neurological disorder," Hutcherson said.
Autopsies didn’t reveal what caused the cubs to develop “head shakes,” so park staff “chalked it up to a genetic defect,” Hutcherson said.
Though lions and tigers are genetically close enough to interbreed, one of the differences between the species is that the gene that inhibits growth in tigers is found in the male, and in lions in the female. Because Ligers are the result of a male Lion and female tiger, the gene that switches off body growth at maturity is absent in ligers, and they just keep growing. This condition is known medically as growth dysplasia, and happens with many species, usually as the result of excessive inbreeding. In some cases it can cause death, when the body grows too large to support itself.
Besides, the tigress suffers while giving birth to an oversized cub. There were incidents when the tigress died while giving birth, and plenty of times they make C section on tigresses.
And ligers are not healthy either. They have a shorter life expectancy and plenty of them have genetic problems. There have been many instances when ligers have incomplete DNA.
While very few ligers have been bred and studied, in many cases the tiger mother requires a C-section due to the large size of the liger cub, and many die shortly after birth. Additionally, because of their size and growth, ligers may suffer from genetic abnormalities, neurological defects, cancer and arthritis, along with shorter life spans than their parents.
There’s just no reason to breed them. Source:
But even more threatening to species preservation are hybrids that can reproduce. (…) ”It’s a nasty situation,” says Susan Haig, a wildlife ecologist at Oregon State University. Hybrids can result in loss of genetic diversity, she explains, and there’s no protection for them under the 1973 Endangered Species Act. By traditional species’ definition‐‐in which organisms with common traits breed to create fertile offspring‐‐they shouldn’t be mating
While the world mourns Mandela, let’s not forget that some of the people “mourning” him are the children of the people who imprisoned him in the first place. Quite similar to the G.O.P. singing the praises of MLK Jr. and Rosa Parks, as if they loved them when they were alive.
We also shouldn’t forget that Mandela was on the U.S. terrorist watch list until 2008. He was 90 when they decided to take him off the list.
Expect the multinational corporations to use Mandela’s name and image for their capitalist interests. He will be their merchandise.
We mourn Mandela, but be wary of the snakes in the grass.
