At least three dead in two shootings at Jewish centers in Kansas. 15-year-old boy reported to be critically wounded; police report one person was in custody; man reportedly yelled ‘Heil Hitler’ when police arrested him.

Click here for the full story and breaking developments

Reblogging again to add: 

Also, non-Jews, please spread this. People will forget about it otherwise. The police say they aren’t ready to call it a hate crime, despite the fact that witnesses have said that the man was asking people if they were Jewish and waiting for an affirmative response before shooting. The more people who are paying attention to this story the harder it will be for it to be swept under the rug. 

A lot of people are currently very excited about the recent Cap movie. If you believe that it was worthwhile for Steve Rogers to fight fictional nazis, please show that you care about the people harmed by those in the real world who still agree with Nazi ideology. If you can get super excited and make tons of posts about Cap, then you can do this too, right? (obviously there are people who are upset/triggered by this stuff, which is an entirely different situation. but if you can spread the word please do)

I’m very sorry to those of you who don’t come to my blog expecting to see news or other horrible real world stuff. I thought it was worth putting out there.

It would be so simple if it was only about Nazis.

Guys.

It’s not only about Nazis.

It’s about my local Jewish Federation having to issue this statement:

Our hearts and prayers are with the Jewish community of Overland Park, Kan., in the wake of the senseless shootings there. We pray for comfort for the families of the dead, and for the refuah shleymah of the injured.

On the eve of Passover, this is a painful reminder of the need for our Jewish community to be constantly vigilant. Today, as always, we have security procedures in place at Jewish institutions throughout the Chicago area, and are grateful for the excellent and continual collaboration we have with law enforcement at all levels.

The need for that second paragraph breaks my heart all over the place. Get angry because of the Nazis, sure, but also get angry because we have systems in place to anticipate this shit.

uh Hi everyone!! i know this is  kind of out of no where but this is my good friend Ashley. I love her so much and she’s such a fun,loving person, and she needs help. She’s been fighting aplastic anemia for over 2 years and she recently lost her hair due to chemotherapy, and she’s only 15. For those of you who don’t know, aplastic anemia is a condition in the bone marrow where its unable to make enough white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. Its very similar to leukemia. It has caused her to miss a numerous amount of school, and she has had to undergo many surgeries and doctors appointments. In fact, she is unable to return to school for the rest of the year. she’s been gone since December.

Because of her condition, she can’t be out in the sun, take the stairs, and she gets very nauseous easily. If she has to be outside for a long time, she needs a wheelchair. At school I had to ride the elevator with her and make sure she was okay every so often.

Unfortunately, her family is unable to pay for the treatment she desperately needs. I don’t know if this will work, but I was hoping that if i posted this, some people on tumblr would help donate. The money would go towards a bone marrow transplant. It costs $10,000 and so far they have only made about $1,300.

Please im asking this as her friend and someone who cares about her. If you could just signal boost this or even donate a dollar it would mean so much to me and her family as well.

Donation for Transplant

Facebook Page

There’s only about a month left until this campaign closes so please help.

Thank you so much.

REBLOG THIS ! You can save Ashley’s life… I know we can do it ! It’s only $10,000… It’s nothing for tumblr ! WHERE ARE THE NOTES!

Again, being a white male requires me to accept abuse without complaint because of “systematic oppression” which I had no part putting in place, right? Tell me: how does this move the world forward towards equality? Does perpetually punishing us even though not all of us are “neck beard MRAs” make you feel better about yourselves? If so, that’s really sad.

If you truly consider Aziz Ansari joking about white dudes in bars “abuse,” I want your life, dudebro.

And no, joking about people like you doesn’t make us “feel better about ourselves”; it makes us laugh, and does not contribute to any systemic oppression against you. As I’ve told your dumb ass before, not everything has to “move the world toward equality.” Joking about privileged groups is harmless and fun.

And while you may not have “put systemic oppression in place” (lolwut), you do perpetuate and benefit from it. Like right now.

But please, keep trying to sound smart. I’m dying over here.

How the holy fuck am I perpetuating oppression by saying “hey, don’t make broad generalizations about my group”?  How is one thing related to the other?

Joking about privileged groups is harmless and fun.

Yeah, well the kids in school who used to pick on me day in & day out thought it was “harmless and fun” too.  Sure, to the people doing the joking, of course it’s “harmless and fun”.

How can you possibly be this unable to put yourself in someone else’s shoes??

I’m going to explain something to you in very simple language, and then I’m going to need you to shut the fuck up.

You have been harping on about a fucking joke about white men in backward hats and button-downs since last night. Apparently, simply going the fuck to sleep and starting the day anew was not enough to ease your pain. Now, what was the punchline of this joke? It was “if you’re a white dude who dresses badly and hangs out in a bar, I probably hate you.”

Now imagine what the rest of us go through.

I get hateful messages in my inbox calling me—me specifically—“cunt,” “bitch,” and various other names simply for being a woman on the internet. I get these messages at least once a week.

I have been raped numerous times by a white man. I have been roofied by a white man. I have been chased to my apartment building late at night by a group of white men. I have received rape threats from a white male co-worker who also shoved me against a wall, held a paper towel over my mouth, and asked me if it “smells like chloroform.” I am harassed by men—mostly white ones—on a daily basis. Oh, and there was also this lovely series of messages. (Heed the trigger warnings.)

And you expect me to give one flying fuck about how you feel about this? About a harmless joke that doesn’t target you specifically, doesn’t perpetuate or reflect systemic discrimination against white men, doesn’t use slurs, and was delivered by a man of color who has undoubtedly dealt with a whole lot of shit from white guys?

Really? This is where your priorities lie?

You are a grade-A piece of shit, and you have no business trying to call me out for anything. If Aziz Ansari had personally hunted your pathetic self down and berated you for your fashion sense I might have kinda sorta seen where you were coming from (although the idea of him doing that is hilarious), but this particular joke has fuck all to do with you. You’re not being bullied. You’re not being harmed. All you have to do to avoid this shit is fucking scroll past it. But the rest of us deal with discrimination and oppression every fucking day of our lives. You expect me to care about your white boy button-down feelings? I don’t. I will never care about your feelings so long as my PTSD wakes me in the middle of the night and people tell me I’m worth less because I’m a disabled woman, that I need to shut up, that I should keep starving myself until I, yknow, die.

If your priorities truly lie with jokes like this, you need to sit down and rethink your entire miserable fucking life. Because you know what’s more important?

Literally anything else.

You want me to put myself in your fucking shoes? Try mine, you absolute piece of garbage.

Also, everyone knows white boys wear ugly shoes.

Seriously I know that boobs are beautiful and sexy and everything, but really, it’s just some organic jiggling baby feeders. No need to hide them or be ashamed or over-sexualize them. 

FREE TITIES.

reblog cuz this is funny

I shouldn’t have to tag this for NSFW, So I won’t.

Probably if more girls would do this, we could adapt more like not calling them sexual organs lol Remember that some guys are assholes too, so prepare to get yelled at or possibly touched :/ We should get rid of the problem (those guys) instead of forcing bras or bikinis….

I went to church with a lady that went to do missionary work in Africa (I think it was Africa.) and they had classes on how they needed to dress and stuff. And at one point she made a joke about wearing turtlenecks and the teacher said “Darlin, you could walk around topless for all the men are going to care.”

This woman is “stacked” “buxom”… she has big titties okay?

And she said “Really??”

And the teacher explained. “Breasts are for babies in most parts of the world. It’s only in America and a few other places that Breasts are seen as sexual. Breasts to men of the country we are going to are for babies and only for babies. Now… your ass on the other hand… you’re gonna need some long skirts with a high waist, cause they notice the booty.”

i really hate seeing children at gay rallies. in most cases, they don’t understand what they’re doing and what they’re promoting. i think most children are pressured into going to gay rallies by their parents and, therefore, pressured into believing in gay marriage. 

Excuse you, I knew about homosexuality since I was four. With five years I could already argue about it and with six I had a formed opinion. All my motherS did was explain to me what it was, without ever telling me if it was good of bad.
The truth is that is actually easier for kids to understand homosexuality, and maybe even accept it, if they are told about it at a young age.  
Yes, maybe the two-years-old kids there are not sure of whats going on, but their parents are raising them to open their minds and accept differences without it being a huge deal.
It’s funny how people don’t mind dragging kids at sundays to the church, to make them sit and listen to things they can’t understand nor question, but it’s so wrong to take them to a walk were they can see pretty rainbows , and later understand what they mean.
This is bullshit.

I never went to a fucking rally in my life and I grew up in a household where being in a same-sex relationship is normal, to the extent that I didn’t actually realise it wasn’t normal until I hit school. And I didn’t even have a gay parent. My mother just raised me to be a decent fucking human being.
So you tell me what’s worse here, that my mother taught me that gay relationships are fucking fine, or that society tried to teach me to hate them.
