Hey everybody. I will not be updating my blog until December 12. Do not worry; I will be back!
Yes, you, reading this. I hope you had a really good day because you deserve it and you shouldn’t be sad. *hug*
Sometimes I feel like nothing is good enough for tumblr. Disney portrays a strong female character. It’s not good enough because she’s white. Google does something for Elimination of Violence Against Women day. It’s not good enough because it’s not smacked in your face. You have to cherish the little victories, folks. The cup isn’t always half empty.
lovolonoss-ondornooth omg this sounds so weird
lonololy. Unless you count sometimes-y, in which case I’d be lonololo. LOL.
A YMCA in St. Paul, Minnesota is now offering swim practice once a week to the community’s Muslim Somali girls, offering the girls a safe environment to learn how to swim while accounting for their concerns about modesty.
While Minnesota’s newspaper noted that this is an important and much-needed program for the community, Fox News saw the story as an opportunity to broadcast their signature brand of fearmongering Islamophobia.
Fox’s Heather Nauert:
Well the minority becoming the majority at one community pool.
Sharia law is now changing everything.
A YMCA in Minneapolis-St. Paul is starting a swim group for Muslim girls but special considerations have to be made to keep with their religious beliefs. Now this means during the one-hour class, the pool is being shut down, the men’s locker room is being locked, and female lifeguards are being brought in. Similar classes are now starting at towns across the Midwest. We’ll keep watching this story for you.
As usual, a single challenge to the White Christian Status Quo is viewed as “changing everything” and “becoming the majority.”
"…but special considerations have to be made,” and now things have to be “shut down,” “locked,” and people “brought in”…the amount of negatively connotated words and phrases here is so blatant. They’ve made trying to be modest and following religious beliefs sound like an ominous, growing burden on society—like a spreading disease. “Similar classes are now starting at towns across the Midwest. We’ll keep watching this story for you.” As if it needs to be “watched,” and by doing so they’re being the good guys and doing all of us a favor…good grief.
"Reading one hour per day of your chosen field will make you an international expert in 7 years."
This is so motivational.
Do online books count though
does gay fanfiction count though
I’m pretty sure I’ve read enough slash to qualify as an expert in gay fanfiction.
Please tell me this isn’t true.
Imam Mosque, formerly known as Shah Mosque is a mosque in Isfahan, Iran standing in south side of Naghsh-i Jahan Square.
The Vatican could never.
I’ll never forget the time I went to a gay pride parade and on the way back home the train was so packed everyone was literally hugging each other and I said “I can’t take this, I’m just a small town girl”
then my friend said “living in a lonely world”
AND THEN THE ENTIRE FUCKING TRAIN CAR STARTED SINGING JOURNEY
Bless your heart Joseph Fink.
