Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.

If you use YouTube, you need to know this.
You’ve heard all these rumblings about Net Neutrality over the past several months. Let’s get real: this is about controlling online video. It is estimated that by 2017, video content will account for 80-90% of all global Internet traffic.
This isn’t just about not being able to binge-watch a series on Netflix. It’s about the future of online video as we know it.
Whether your YouTube channel is home to daily vlogs, short films, or just that one video from when the cinnamon challenge seemed like a good idea, you’re a video creator. Your content and comments help shape this community. Let’s keep it that way.
Net Neutrality means that your YouTube videos reach people at the same speed as clips from last night’s episode of the Tonight Show. It means a level playing field for video creators looking to reach an audience. But new Net Neutrality rules could mess that up.
Here’s the deal: Telecommunications companies already charge us to access the Internet through our homes and our phones. New FCC rules could allow them to also charge content providers (like YouTube, Netflix, and even PBS) for access to our eyeballs. It could create a fast lane for Jimmy Fallon’s clips, and slow lane for your YouTube videos.
It is really important that the FCC understands that online video creators care about Net Neutrality. Even if you’ve only ever uploaded ONE VIDEO, you are a creator and you have a voice.
If you can, please add your channel to our petition. We’ll deliver this to the FCC in September and demonstrate that the online video community cares about this issue. 
Sign the petition, then spread the word.

jl8comic:

I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone who has come out to support me today. It doesn’t change what I did, but it does mean a lot to know that people are willing to believe me when I say this whole thing was one big mistake, and that I’m truly remorseful.

However, and MOST importantly: I

Always sad to hear that someone I admire made such a poor decision but his reaction is much more encouraging than others I’ve seen.

it is crucial to believe and respect girls when they say a guy is giving them bad vibes even if they don’t give you a reason why

Trust your intuition ladies

sylvia rivera led the stonewall riots that inspired pride parades, and brenda howard organized those first pride parades.

two bi women literally created the pride movement (and a huge part of the lgbtq rights movement) and people still wanna say we’re not queer.

Don’t forget that Sylvia Riveria was a Latina Trans woman at that
