here’s your causal reminder that Ferguson isn’t some magically isolated incident. it’s just the most recent one where the people didn’t back down. this is the standard for racial tension and anti-black sentiment in the united states.
Hey anon. I actually didn’t make up that hashtag, it was my girlfriend who was sitting next to me at the time who typed it in. It is more socially acceptable for girls to do those types of things but it should be that it’s cool for any gender to participate in any kind of grooming they want to.
I respect your opinion - and I didn’t write it in the first place so I can’t really speak for my girlfriend. It is good to think about these things but we are wired socially to think it’s not as acceptable for men to do these things and I don’t think Jes put much thought into the hashtags anyway.
Hey anon, girlfriend Jes here - you are totally right the the hashtag was super binarist. It was typed in a want to have a pithy hashtag to express the conversation we were having prior, that of the advantages of being involved with someone who expresses their gender in similar ways you do; defs would have been better to use #femmeperks or something similar. I certainly did not want to say that women have the sole right to expressions of femininity, that expressions of femininity are not shown by people of all genders, or that all women do express femininity. Thanks for the call out anon, and I’ll be more thoughtful about my language in the future :)

1:23 AM: We literally laid in someone’s backyard for what seemed like an eternity while tanks rolled down the streets #Ferguson
1:26 AM: I’m live tweeting because there’s a media blackout. #Ferguson
1:33 AM: I’m so shaken. They’re literally just rolling around throwing tear gas into neighborhoods-not aggressive crowds. #Ferguson
1:34 AM: I was pouring milk over one guys eyes when they came back around and threw another at us. #Ferguson
1:51 AM: Let me repeat, THEY ARE GASSING NEIGHBORHOODS not crowds of protestors.There was only a few of us walking. there is no curfew, so why?]
My Anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns hun!
minimum wage doesn’t even TOUCH a living wage, racism and sexism are alive and well, children are killed in schools on a regular basis, those who make it to college end up with hundreds of thousands in debt, our basic rights are being stripped from us daily, and adults actually believe that SELFIES are the cause for this generation’s demise
i have been seeing a lot of different links for different places to donate for bail and legal fees, but i haven’t been able to find anything on whether or not the funds have actually been going towards helping out the people of ferguson so
if you know of any more please add and spread them and if in doubt remember to google first
