HEY! HEYYYYYYYY!

This shit, just happened! I’m sure you all remember the case of Jordan Davis, the 17-year-old black boy who was shot at a gas station by Michael Dunn for playing his music too loudly. Well this just happened!

The biggest newspaper in Minnesota ran this ad in its Sunday edition.
It was placed by the anti-LGBT Minnesota Child Protection League in response to a proposed policy that would allow trans high school athletes to play on teams that correspond with their gender identity.
It reads: “A male wants to shower beside your 14-year-old daughter. Are YOU ok with that?” In a full-page ad.  
Call them out on Twitter to voice your opinions. 

This is horrific. Trans youth of all ages deserve respect — not misgendering, slander and harassment. We’re appalled.

Mike Brown’s Vigil in Ferguson, MO.
We marched with Mike’s mother to the site of her son’s murder. When we stopped to pray, I looked down and noticed that there was still blood lining the street. That’s when it felt real for me. I saw my own brother’s blood splattered across the pavement…murdered in broad daylight… brains spilling out. I saw my own mother shaking as she prayed over his distant body from behind the caution tape. I saw myself before the world… trying to explain why he deserved to live.
