Help save a 16 year-old trans girl of color from being put in a mens adult prison with NO crimes charged on her by emailing Commissioner Katz.

butchimightbe:

She has never been convicted of a crime but they want to move her to near isolation in an adult mens prison. This CANNOT happen. Here is a more in depth article: http://feministing.com/2014/04/14/how-the-connecticut-department-of-children-families-is-failing-a-trans-girl-of-color/

I put together an email for Commissioner Katz, so all you have to do is copy and paste it. Click here for the example email

95% of the time i absolutely don’t care what cis men’s opinions on comics are

This is very confusing. 95% of comics (at least) are WRITTEN by cis men, who write characters based on their opinions of what past cis male writers have done (unless of course they are brand new characters). Is that the 5%? Cuz it seems like a huge chunk to be just 5%.

Secondly, I will grant that comics are still largely a male dominated medium, but how does cissexuality enter into the equation? Does a non-cis male read a comic different? I mean, sure maybe they would be more appreciative of books that include non-cis characters, but beyond that… What is it? What insights can they offer that literally anybody else cannot?

Side note: cis only means you feel you are the gender you were “assigned” at birth. Does this mean gay men are included in “people whose opinions you don’t care about?” If so, why?

i aggressively do not care about your opinions and your little logic traps aren’t as cute as you think they are

A penguin who was previously made a Colonel-in-Chief of the Norwegian Army has been knighted at Edinburgh Zoo.

Penguin Nils Olav has been an honorary member and mascot of the Norwegian King’s Guard since 1972.

Over the years, he has been promoted through the ranks after being adopted by Royal Guard who visited the zoo.

During the ceremony, Nils had a sword dubbed on each side of his head, where his shoulders should be, to confirm his regimental knighthood.

The proud penguin was on his best behavior throughout most of the ceremony, but shortly before the ritual was concluded and possibly suffering a bout of nerves he was seen to deposit a discreet white puddle on the ground.

Sir Nils Olav the penguin.
