She’s not alone. A new report details how an untold number of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are facing financial distress because they don’t enjoy the same legal protections of straight married couples. (via micdotcom)

Marriage inequality isn’t just a social injustice?— it’s a financial one, too.

Just ask 67-year-old Arlene Goldberg. The South Florida resident was kicked out of her home after her wife of 47 years died because she wasn’t entitled to her wife’s Social Security benefits. Without that extra money, she couldn’t afford to pay the mortgage.

“I’m trying to figure out how I am going to get through this time,” she told NBC News. “I really can’t even pay my bills.”

after the whole vampire craze I thought I was totally over it all

completely tired of all things vampire related and that I wouldn’t be interested in the blood-sucking undead ever again

turns out I was only tired of straight vampires

floozys:

it’s so weird that men can make endless misogynistic comments and not have to reassure people that they don’t hate women but when women, especially those in the spotlight, talk about things concerning women they feel an overwhelming need to constantly reassure the world that they don’t hate men, that they love men. 

and by weird i mean a cultural norm to demean women and overvalue men.

I hear people say “oh my god I hate people” all the time without backlash. everyone knows they don’t hate every single individual in humanity. they have friends and family they love and hang out with. they simply hate the greedy, corrupted, oppressive nature of some human beings.
but the minute we say something about white people or men, no one seems to understand that it’s the same concept.

Protesters are angry about these strange negotiations to release protesters. What kind of practice is this?

Brittney Cooper | Feminism’s ugly internal clash: Why its future is not up to white women (via america-wakiewakie)

(via arabellesicardi)

White women’s feminisms still center around equality…. Black women’s feminisms demand justice. There is a difference. One kind of feminism focuses on the policies that will help women integrate fully into the existing American system. The other recognizes the fundamental flaws in the system and seeks its complete and total transformation.

I want a superhero movie where the hero dies in the first ten minutes and the woman who was supposed to be the love interest puts on his costume and becomes an even better hero.

I want all of the advertising to be for the hero and none of the marketing to even allude to this death.

imagine all the male tears

I need this like burning.
