what’s this about laverne cox starting a media campaign to support a convicted rapist who abused the corpse of a 13-year-old girl?
what the actual fuck is happening??? ?? ? ?? are we all agreed that she’s a horrible human we can no longer support because what the actual fuckk????
She’s not supporting the rapist. She’s launching a campaign so that the rapist can be moved to a women’s facility as they are transgender….
She could be supporting homeless trans people. She could be supporting trans youth struggling with identity and bullying. She could be advocating for better trans health care. Nope, she’s too busy reading letters from convicted killer pedophile rapists (who, by the way, literally said she wanted to kill a lot of people). So, a reminder:
Trans rapists are rapists.
Trans pedophiles are pedophiles.
Trans murderers are murderers.
Her trans status as a violent criminal is irrelevant. At least in a male prison, this scumbag stands a chance of receiving the abuse she deserves. In a female prison, she’d likely rape and kill more women. It doesn’t matter if people call this monster “he” or “she”—the only thing we should be calling a monster like that is “dead.”
Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.
peter parker is so stupid i want to punch him in the fACE OMFG
this came out of a discussion with a friend about the spider-man movies. i mispoke, saying something along the lines of, “when spider-man lands on the american flag,” when i meant to say was the flag pole but of course, the damage was done and now you all have to look at this ridiculous thing.
The Washington Post reported earlier today that a friend of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson says Wilson’s eye socket was broken during his confrontation with Michael Brown: The signs of easing tensions came as a family friend of the officer who fatally shot Brown came forward to allege new details…
The Washington Post reported earlier today that a friend of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson says Wilson’s eye socket was broken during his confrontation with Michael Brown:The signs of easing tensions came as a family friend of the officer who fatally shot Brown came forward to allege new details of the incident, saying that the officer suffered a fracture to his eye socket in a scuffle with the unarmed teenager before opening fire.Hospital X-rays of the injury have been submitted to the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney and will be shared with a grand jury now weighing evidence to determine whether Officer Darren Wilson should be charged in the shooting.
That claim appears to have been undermined. For one, the Post is now reportingthat prosecutors have not seen any of Wilson’s medical records:[Spokesperson Ed] Magee said that prosecutors have not received any medical records relating to Wilson so far. But he said that since Wilson was taken to the hospital, they assume there are medical records and they just haven’t received them yet.
And CNN producer Julian Cummings, who last week correctly reported that the release of Wilson’s name was imminent, reports that the claim Wilson had a broken eye bone is flat-out incorrect:
Reports that Ofc Darren Wilson had a bruised or fractured eye socket are false.#ferguson A source close to the investigation tells CNN— Julian Cummings CNN (@JulianCummings)August 21, 2014
Wilson was taken to the hospital after the shooting. He had xrays which came back negative. He was treated for a swollen face. #ferguson— Julian Cummings CNN (@JulianCummings)August 21, 2014
St. Louis County prosecutor Robert McCulloch says the grand jury that will decide whether or not to indict Wilson may not hear all evidence in the case until October.

If you’ve been keeping up with what the media is saying about Darren Wilson, you may have read this article that claims he suffered a blowout fracture: a fracture of one or more bones surrounding the eye. Here is a screencap from the article of “Darren Wilson’s” CT scan. Also known as “lol_bc_not_darren_wilson.jpg”
When the article later stated that “police sources” said 12 witnesses had taken Wilson’s side, I was incredible skeptical, obviously.
[I also want to mention that this article is using pictures of the convenience store where the owner’s lawyer blatantly stated that Mike Brown did not steal anything.]
This article lists the side effects of an orbital blowout fracture. It also posts a video taken by Piaget Crenshaw, a woman who lives on the street where Mike Brown was killed. The video shows Darren Wilson standing around Mike’s body soon after his murder, showing no signs of pain; and you see the officer he’s reporting to acting like Wilson hasn’t been injured at all. That isn’t very likely for someone who would have visible signs of trauma.
The second article also shows “Darren’s” CT scan, and one that looks exactly like it, but: in the corner it says UNIV OF IOWA ETC-TC. Just to check up on this, I looked up the words “university of iowa blowout fracture” and set Google to where it would show posts from before this year, guess what.
On uiowa.edu, this CT scan was on a page made in 2008. [It’s about all kinds of eye trauma.] Here’s a screencap with the url in it so you can see what I’m talking about, if you don’t want to scroll through a page with graphic injuries.
I don’t know why they thought they could get away with this at all, oh my god. The article that says Darren Wilson was injured is a complete fallacy, and the police released this information to make Mike Brown seem like a “thug.”
(“There’s no more racism in America! We have a black President!”)
Now listen to me. If an article does not post credible sources (“two local St. Louis sources” does not count at all) or only goes off what the police is saying: double, triple, quadruple check it before you share the information, just to cause less hysteria for everyone trying to stay updated on these horrific events.
