Hobby Lobby Allegedly Fired Employee Due to Pregnancy

rhrealitycheck:

When a very pregnant Felicia Allen applied for medical leave from her job at Hobby Lobby three years ago, one might think that the company best known for denying its employees insurance coverage of certain contraceptives—on the false grounds that they cause abortions—would show equal concern for helping one of its employees when she learned she was pregnant.”

Everyone, my sweet sweet lover is in A LOT of pain and it doesn’t seem any of our accessible remedies are going to work. I am beyond worried and at a loss of what to do next. There is a lot of shame in asking for help. So please know we wouldn’t be doing this if we had another way out. Knowing we have had the support of our community far and wide during this process has been a truly beautiful experience. Thank you everyone for all of the love and support!
I know there is so much going on in the world and so much need. If you can and you’re giving with an open heart, we’d really be so appreciate of any help you can give.

thank you again <3 <3

guh I H8 that we have to do this and I’m having a lot of class shame but I’m also in so much pain and just want this fixed so whatever! I got some shotty dental care a few years ago and its left me a with a lot of dental problems. Our natural remedies are no longer working.  Please donate if you can, or signal boost. Thank you so much loves. I really appreciate it. 

I’ve been following these two folks for a good long while. I have never met them and probably never will, but I love seeing posts from either of them pop up on my dashboard — they are both insightful, sweet, powerful, delightful and they fill me with hope and inspiration that has more than once carried me through a bad day.
Consider giving a little, if you can.

oh my goddess this is so incredibly sweet. I am fully blown away by deep love and support that is happening. we are almost half way there! I am so excited to no longer be in pain!

I literally scrolled this app for 30 seconds before finding this shit.

It’s not even surprising how easy it is to spot racism everywhere.

Oh and the users above are the ones who drew the photos. Not sure if you can contact those people directly but thought I’d include it. Especially the white guy with the confederate cap.

it says, fetus at 3 months, fetus at 6 months, fetus at 9 months, fetus at 25 years and a phrase that basically reads, “i’d like it if abortions were illegal” are you seriously sexualizing a fetus on the off chance that it turns out to be a voluptuous women you’d want to bang

ignoring the fact that piper kerman identifies herself as bisexual so that you can drool about how “not everybody needs labels!!!!” is bisexual erasure, period

the label of “bisexual” needs support and visibility to lift the stigma surrounding bisexuality and to reinforce its legitimacy. don’t take that away from us just because you think it’s more poetic or philosophical or whatever to not have labels

"DO NOT FUCKING QUOTE GAIL DINES"

Every sex worker on Tumblr. Repeatedly. Constantly. Daily.

AND YET.

It is a *privilege* to not know who Gail Dines is and to read something she wrote that was actually not virulently hateful towards sex workers or trans women and was maybe on point for once and so to reblog it to all of the sex workers and trans women who follow you.

Spread this post around so people KNOW NOT TO DO THAT SHIT.  If Gail Dines has said something correct, I guarantee you a million other women have said it better. So find a better quote and stop it with Dines.

The brunette part is really important.

coded racist language for the fail

Love the scare quotes around “”“pansexual”“”.
Like, I can see the Fox Newsroom writers being like…

"This democrat says she’s a…. pa..pansexual?  Is that a thing?"
"I don’t know, Jenkins.  Never heard of it.  Sounds made-up.  Write up a story and put quotations around the word until we have time to fact check it….
HAHAHAHAAA just kidding.  We don’t fact check.”

black excellence

No, human excellence.

Let’s talk about set theory! In mathematical logic, we have a subfield called “set theory” where we study how items are collected into groups.
Providing a sort of logical bedrock, set theory informs foundational mathematics and computer science, among other fields, and continues to be a topic of mathematical research.
Sound too esoteric? Okay, you’re familiar with Venn diagrams, right? Venn diagrams are an example of basic set theory.

And you know how all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares? There we go, more set theory.
So, Black people are group within the larger group humans, i.e. all Black people are humans, BUT not all humans are Black people.
As you can see in the photograph above, Keven Stonewall, the Chicago teen who may cure colon cancer, is Black. Keven Stonewall’s membership in other groups such as humans, Chicagoans and teenagers occurs simultaneously; consider “Chicago teen.”
Why do we say “square” when we could say “rectangle”? Because “square” conveys useful information, including “rectangle”—as well as a refinement.
When we say Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence, we mean Keven Stonewall is an example of Black excellence.

As usual. If a category can’t be applied to white people then it’s not applicable.

9 human rights tragedies the world needs to stop ignoring

It’s a tragically long list: missing women, ethnic cleansing and spreading diseases. Pick any country — including the United States — and there’s most likely a tragedy you’ll uncover that seriously violates international laws and standards. While unleashing international outrage can sometimes hurt more than it helps, there are some situations where it can make a real impact. 

Here are 9 that deserve more attention | Follow micdotcom
