So this MRA calls a domestic violence hotline pretending to be a man who’s being abused by his wife. He claims that the hotline refused to help him because he’s a man.
Actually, the counselor explained that he’d called a counseling line, not an actual shelter, but that she could connect him to a hotline for men that would give him and his young son a free hotel room. He refused and said that he wanted to call the police on his wife; the counselor offered to connect him directly to a police officer who specializes in domestic violence. He refused this too, and insisted that he wanted to be housed IN A SHELTER FOR BATTERED WOMEN SPECIFICALLY, even though he does not identify as a woman. The counselor continued to insist that he could get a free hotel stay if he let her connect him to the appropriate hotline. He kept refusing and finally ended the call without warning.
“Men’s rights” activism, folks.
Oh. My. Just watch this clip of a tornado throwing semis in the suburbs of Dallas. Just, wow.
Read the news story on MSNBC: 3 tornadoes do serious damage, touching down in near Dallas.
Yeah it was crazy. Still not even completely over. My school got evacuated and all.
Ohhhh fox news it’s like you do it on purpose.. Hooray for UK news online.
Why does Fox even exist?!
Officials of the Dallas County Community College District voted on Tuesday to change their nondiscrimination policies to protect people against discrimination based on gender identity and expression.
One amended policy protects employees and two others protect students. DCCCD, the largest college in the state, is the third community college in Texas to add trans protections to its policies. Check the Dallas Voice article linked above for more details.
FUCK YES DCCCD!!!! I GO TO SCHOOL IN DCCCD!!!
Spread this news. Everywhere.
“The sexual histories of political candidates and elected officials have no place in politics because they can distract us from supporting those men and women with the skills to reduce the nation’s debt, create jobs and defeat our enemies….I have treated miraculously talented, married surgeons and researchers who save lives every day, then meet up with escorts by night. Personally, I wouldn’t hazard going under the knife with a less talented fellow who is a paragon of virtue, sexually.”
Dr. Ablow would, however, stop your children from watching Chaz Bono on television because they might get the idea that being transgender is acceptable, or warn you against shopping at J. Crew, lest your son learn to paint his toenails. But don’t worry, he has no problem praising heterosexual infidelity and serial adulterers. Let’s face it, he just wants you to focus on the fact that they are
Republican, male and heterosexualpeople too.
^Commentary. Oh Dr. Ablow, why you gotta be like that?
The Associated Press voted Lady Gaga the Entertainer of the Year for 2011. She beat out candidates like Steve Jobs, Adele, Charlie Sheen and the cast of Harry Potter. More.
Seriously? God get the fuck out of my life. You are not the Entertainer of the year. Go dig a ditch and die in it.
I used to go to Afterlife all the time. Oh, the memories.
Baylor University, a private Baptist school in Texas, recently offered a sociology class which until last week was called “Homosexuality as Gateway Drug.” After the wonders of the Internet (read: Reddit and Buzzfeed) took note of the class title, Baylor changed the class name to “Family Studies.”
Oh, you’ve got to be kidding me.
and apparently, there is no coverage of this and no arrest. a gunman on the top of a building starts targeting children at school and a number of people are injured and one killed.
yet none of this is on the news?? like the link says, if this had happened in Manhattan, they woulda been coverage to no end. the racial segregation of the schools in NYC is very disturbing. and when you look at the amount of funding each borough received for education, it’s a wonder whether integration ever happened within the city limits. not to mention, if this woman had been white, they would have sent out the federal reserve.
what surprises me is that i’m still amazed at shit like this.
“Zurana Horton, the 33-year-old pregnant woman, was hit in the head in front of the Lucky Supermarket at Pitkin Ave. and Watkins St. after she threw herself over a group of children, cops and witnesses said.
…If this horrifying episode, which has not yet resulted in an arrest, had happened in Manhattan’s tony Upper East Side neighborhood instead of one of the poorest communities in New York City, news copters would still be flying overhead, and the networks would be all over it. Zurana Horton is a heroine who followed her instincts. Her bravery should not be ignored simply because of her ZIP code.”
Imagine ‘daddy’ being stupid enough not to realize what’s up.
Or, imagine the fact that daddy came home on rotation/temporary leave for maybe a few days or weeks around the holidays, like they normally allow.
Or, that the news teleprompter got their numbers wrong. GOD FORBID A NEWS TELEPROMPTER EVER MAKE AN ERROR ON TELEVISION. ‘CAUSE THAT AIN’T NEVER HAPPENED.
Y’all slut-shamers are doing the most. GTFO with that bullshit.
