“Last winter, what started as a flurry of emails among four Saskatchewan women grew into a robust grassroots movement. The women—Jessica Gordon, Sylvia McAdam, Sheelah McLean, and Nina Wilson—were corresponding about a budget bill that would affect land management on the reservations of Canada’s indigenous communities, called First Nations. Believing the bill challenged First Nations’ sovereignty and weakened environmental protections, they organized a meeting of local activists. Gordon called the Facebook page that resulted from the meeting “Idle No More” as a reminder that the community had to “get off the couch and start working.” Before long, #IdleNoMore was trending on Twitter, and protests under the same name spread across Canada. Solidarity demonstrations also occurred in the United States, Europe, and Australia. The protests in particular targeted Canada’s extractive industries, asserting that new pipelines and other projects would destroy land and disrupt ecosystems. One protest delayed exploratory drilling in British Columbia.”—Idle No More founders named to top 100 global thinkers list | CTV Saskatoon News (via aboriginalnewswire)
“Even if we read books and talk about them for four years, and then do something else more obviously remunerative, it won’t be time wasted. We need the humanities not because they will produce shrewder entrepreneurs or kinder C.E.O.s but because, as that first professor said, they help us enjoy life more and endure it better. The reason we need the humanities is because we’re human. That’s enough.”—Junot Diaz in reaction to this article from The New Yorker (via bananaleaves)
You’re twenty-one or twenty-nine and your heart’s been broken somewhere between four and twenty times—fetal-position-on-the-bathroom-floor broken, real-country-music broken—and you don’t know how you can ever be expected to go on like this for fifty more years and change.
You have scars. You’ve injured your body in ways that will never fully heal, and you realize you are slowly, incorrigibly sliding away from some physical perfection you imagine you must have possessed sometime in the distant past. Maybe when you were fourteen. Maybe the day you were born.
You’ve gone on and off your medication and the bottle. You’ve had your first marriage and maybe your first divorce, or maybe you’ve always broken things off or been broken off. You’ve fucked and you’ve made love. You’re pretty sure you know the difference now.
You’ve thought of suicide in a post-adolescent way at least once. Practically. Stoically. Without any late-night phone calls. Just sober in a dimly lit bedroom, weighing cons and pros.”
On Monday, Speaker of the House John Boehner sent out a tweet about a man who claimed Obamacare wouldn’t cover his baby.
That would be terrible—if it were true. Turns out the man, a failed conservative political candidate, forgot to put his toddler on the application and never bothered to fix it.
Boehner knew the story wasn’t true and created a media frenzy about it anyway.
Days later, Boehner has yet to take the message down. His 78 assistants have yet to issue a statement correcting the record.
Here’s what I don’t understand: if the Affordable Care Act is such a giant disaster that’s bad for everyone, why do Republicans keep making things up about it, trying to confuse Americans what it does and doesn’t do, and lying at every opportunity about it? If it’s as bad as they say it is, shouldn’t the truth be enough?
“It was 1:50 a.m., 10 minutes before Dick’s closed, and my friends and I were in line to catch a late-night burger. A very drunk man came up to me and insisted that he be my boyfriend. Just then four attractive guys got in line behind us. My eyes fell on one in particular, so I grabbed him and said, ‘This is my boyfriend!’ The guy played right along and even put his arm around me. The drunk man got the message and left. My new ‘boyfriend’ David asked for my number. We were married in 1991.”—This tale of a classic move turning out the best way possible — and at Dick’s, no less — courtesy of Esquire. (via seattlish)
He’s not setting out to make money with xkit, and wants to keep it free and without adds. Sending a couple bucks his way (if you can) will help him cover the cost of the servers that keep xkit running. Even if you can’t donate, please pass it on so others know about this opportunity!
its 20 fucking 13 can we stop pretending that online activism and general awareness campaigns “dont do anything” before i got on tumblr i was a racist sexist anti-feminist piece of garbage whos greatest understanding of any social issue was discrimination against white gay men and that trans people were “men trapped in womens bodies”
