The so-called “pro-life” movement’s philosophy.

One of the best political cartoons that I’ve seen. 

You know what pisses me off about this?  Really, REALLY pisses me off?  That’s George (H.W.) Bush holding that umbrella.  He was president 1981-1989.  Do you get that?  

It means that the right have not budged an inch on their ridiculous pro-foetus, anti-actual-persons position in THIRTY GODDAMN YEARS. We should not still be having this argument! Thirty year old political cartoons should be bafflingly opaque, not crystal clear!

^ Reblogging again for that comment.

A young Jewish refugee with her Chinese playmates. Shanghai, China (x)

Between 1933 and 1941, it is estimated that 20,000 Jews escaped persecution by fleeing to the Chinese port of Shanghai. Shanghai was one of the few places in the world that would accept Jewish refugees at this time, Japan being another.

i am furious that i am just now learning about this important fact.

Because it has nothing to do with the USA being the superhero and saving all the Jews

I live in Japan and I vaguely know (have met once) this gross expat who takes photos of people on the train without their consent, often invasive or inappropriate ones, under the guise of "art." His Instagram is davidbuchler--the worst ones might be farther down. Any advice on what could be done about this creep?

After investigation yes this is a pretty gross fucking expat who apparently lives in Japan and takes pictures of Japanese people.. without consent. Sometimes blatantly in their face despite their obvious discomfort with the situation.

I’m nauseous.

Disgusting.

I saved that one above and this final one, uncensored, just to show the discomfort on these peoples’ faces as they’re photographed without consent.

Comments: "YOU just TOOK this shot? Wow!", "Theyre onto you david"

How fucking appauling.

No respect for Japanese people’s personal space, what so ever. Photographed as if they’re a novelty; animals in the wild, animals in a Zoo. There for your entertainment.

No need to ask for a picture, no need to inquire to see if it’s okay. Because they view Japanese people as public property and something to make a case study out of; something to gawk at.

Western expats in Japan / Korea literally do this shit.

I have had tourists in Osaka try to do this shit TO ME.

Japan law says to take photographs of citizens in public spaces, requires consent.

To publish photographs of citizens, requires consent.

Not only is this disgusting, wrong, dehumanizing, and generally repulsive but it’s also illegal.

If tourists / expats try to take pictures of you without your consent, your rights and personal space is being violated and you have a right to tell them no. If they still took a picture, you have a right to see that the picture is deleted. What they’re doing is illegal and you have the right to stand up and protect yourself.

I don’t have instagram so I don’t know how to report people; but if you do, please report davidbuchler.

Expat plague needs to be taught that we as Japanese people are not their for their amusement. Learn some fucking respect for others or face the consequences.

Okay that stupid ass Joan rivers twitter post? Racism has nothing to do with feminism. Shut up and sit down because your making yourself look ignorant.

theautobiographicalcarpetcleaner:

owning-my-truth:

To the contrary, clueless white woman, racism has been central to white feminism from the beginning. Some quotes via The-Toast and this article:

Susan B. Anthony:

“What words can express her [the white woman’s] humiliation when, at the close of this long conflict, the government which she had served so faithfully held her unworthy of a voice in its councils, while it recognized as the political superiors of all the noble women of the nation the negro men just emerged from slavery, and not only totally illiterate, but also densely ignorant of every public question.” 

Elizabeth Cady Stanton:

“What will we and our daughters suffer if these degraded black men are allowed to have the rights that would make them even worse than our Saxon fathers?”

More Elizabeth Cady Stanton:

“American women of wealth, education, virtue and refinement, if you do not wish the lower orders of Chinese, Africans, Germans and Irish, with their low ideas of womanhood, to make laws for you and your daughters … awake to the danger of your present position and demand that woman, too, shall be represented in the government!”

Belle Kearney:

“The enfranchisement of women would insure immediate and durable white supremacy, honestly attained, for upon unquestioned authority it is stated that in every southern State but one there are more educated women than all the illiterate voters, white and black, native and foreign, combined. As you probably know, of all the women in the South who can read and write, ten out of every eleven are white. When it comes to the proportion of property between the races, that of the white outweighs that of the black immeasurably.”

Anna Howard Shaw:

“You have put the ballot in the hands of your black men, thus making them political superiors of white women. Never before in the history of the world have men made former slaves the political masters of their former mistresses!”

Laura Clay:

“The white men, reinforced by the educated white women, could ‘snow under’ the Negro vote in every State, and the white race would maintain its supremacy without corrupting or intimidating the Negroes.”

Frances Willard:

“Alien illiterates rule our cities today; the saloon is their palace, and the toddy stick their scepter. The colored race multiplies like the locusts of Egypt.”

Carrie Chapman Catt:

“White supremacy will be strengthened, not weakened, by women’s suffrage.”

Rebecca Ann Latimer Felton:

“I do not want to see a negro man walk to the polls and vote on who should handle my tax money, while I myself cannot vote at all…When there is not enough religion in the pulpit to organize a crusade against sin; nor justice in the court house to promptly punish crime; nor manhood enough in the nation to put a sheltering arm about innocence and virtue—-if it needs lynching to protect woman’s dearest possession from the ravening human beasts—-then I say lynch, a thousand times a week if necessary.”

So please spare me with your ahistorical bullshit.

(h/t The-Toast, AnarchaLibrary)

The degree to which white feminism has thrown whoever possible under the bus to advance itself is horrific.
