Stand in Solidarity with Charlottesville

theactualcluegirl:

OKAY, AMERICANS!  

For those who want to find protests and solidarity vigils in your own area, click this link and enter your area code. The site will find whatever’s been organized near you.

Spread this, my Kith. More people need to put feet on the streets, and make themselves MORE visible to the Powers than the nazi asslickers that started this shit, and the nazi asslickers who are turning a blind eye while they carry it on.

Stand up. Stand out. 

Be one of the ones who actually DOES something about it.Spread the word. Do it now.

It’s hard to do anything more from here, but if the Powers don’t start seeing people IN THE STREETS telling them, in no uncertain terms that this shit WILL NOT STAND, then they will have no reason to act in order to stop it.Who’s with me?

PS. If you are feeling helpless and sad about America today, I recommend Sara Benincasa’s thread on Charlottesville-area nonprofits to donate to. The only way to combat hopelessness is by taking a small action to make your community and world what you think they should be. 

I’m about to donate to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

You should, too.

New study projects a stunning drop in 2018 millennial voter turnout in battleground states

  • The 2016 presidential election — and its outcome — may have given plenty of Americans a new sense of urgency when it comes to civics.
  • But a new study projects that 40 million Americans who voted last year will likely not show up at the polls for the 2018 midterms.
  • And that two-thirds of those “drop-off” voters will be millennials, unmarried women and people of color.
  • The report, just out from the Voter Participation Center and Lake Research Partners, “Comparing the Voting Electorate in 2012-2016 and Predicting 2018 Drop-off,” notes that many of those expected not to cast a ballot next year live in key battleground states like Arizona, Nevada, Florida and Ohio.

Young people in America, REGISTER TO VOTE AND GET TO THE POLLS NEXT YEAR

THIS MATTERS

YOUR VOTE MATTERS SO MUCH OKAY

Just look at the difference young people getting out and voting made in the UK general election this year…young voters CAN make a POSITIVE DIFFERENCE by getting out and voting 

And I know this isn’t a presidential election but it is in some ways EVEN MORE IMPORTANT

Because the president can’t do anything without congress and the senate on his side…but likewise, if the Republicans get a majority it means it will be easier for that disgusting sack of stinking dog-vomit Donald Trump and his party of traitors and criminals to push through the DISGUSTING things they want to try and inflict on the country and its people

Get out and vote democrat next year and keep the Republicans from getting a blank check to try and push through their bigoted, evil bullshit

I’m pretty sure the biggest barrier to young people voting isn’t not caring, it’s not knowing.

Am I registered? Shit, who knows? I’ve moved five times in the last four years. I think I registered, but that was a year ago, did I change districts since then? Where even are the polling places in this town? What are their hours? I know I submitted a registration, but did they get it? I didn’t get a confirmation. Did they lose my form? Am I even eligible? Who knows? Oh well, I’m sure I can always register in the days leading up to the – whoops, there’s a deadline and it’s already gone by.

This is one of those civic skills that you would really think would be taught in high school, and – surprise! – it isn’t.

So here’s how to check which district you’re in and who your rep is.

Here’s how to find out if you’re registered.

Here are the deadlines for when to register.

Here’s how to register, if it turns out you’re not.

Here’s how to find local polling places.

Of course, all of this – in the way of Tumblr, and the internet more generally – will be lost to the vagaries of cyberspace by the time November rolls around. So hey: tag it with “voting reference” and you’ll always be able to find it again.

In light of what happened recently in Charlottesville, here are ways you can help courtesy of Sara Benincasa on Twitter. Donate to local non-profits, signal boost, and show your support for the Black Student Alliance at University of Virginia. If you have spare money, support the Black Student Alliance or the counter protestor legal fund.

Saying that a bisexual person has become straight/gay because they’re going out with someone of a particular sex is like saying that someone has become a vegetarian because they had a salad for lunch

Donald Trump Announces Ban on Transgender Troops Including 15,000 Actively Serving

SHAMEFUL. This harms military readiness and puts lives at risk. There are more than 15,000 active serving transgender troops. Threatening 15,000 currently serving troops who put their lives at risk is unpatriotic and dangerous.

from Joshua Block (ACLU attorney):

and here’s the ACLU’s official statement:

This is an outrageous and desperate action. The thousands of transgender service members serving on the front lines for this country deserve better than a commander-in-chief who rejects their basic humanity.

Let us be clear. This has been studied extensively, and the consensus is clear: There are no cost or military readiness drawbacks associated with allowing trans people to fight for their country. The president is trying to score cheap political points on the backs of military personnel who have put their lives on the line for their country.

There is no basis for turning trans people away from our military and the ACLU is examining all of our options on how to fight this. For any trans service member affected by today’s announcement: Please get in touch with us, because we want to hear from you. [x]

if you want to support trans people serving in the military, please consider donating to the ACLU. as mentioned in their official statement, their examining all options on how to fight this ban. 

also, to all the people on tumblr today that responded to this blatantly transphobic ban with some snarky edgy response about how denying trans people entry to the military is a ‘good thing’, because 'the military is bad anyways’: fuck you
