Take away women’s right to vote? 🤷🏾‍♀️ Uh, actually… Voter ID laws have a disproportionately negative effect on women. According to the Brennan Center for Justice, one third of all women have citizenship documents that do not identically match their current names primarily because of name changes at marriage.  Roughly 90 percent of women who marry adopt their husband’s last name.  That means that roughly 90 percent of married female voters have a different name on their ID than the one on their birth certificate.  An estimated 34 percent of women could be turned away from the polls unless they have precisely the right documents. so, yes.

Apparently, Bad, and Facetime: HERE LIES THE INTERNET 1969 212 2 NET NEUTRALITY UPDATE staff: 🚨 The internet needs you 🚨 You’re up again, Tumblr. Back in 2015 you demanded that the FCC adopt strict net neutrality rules and establish a free and open internet. And you won. That should’ve been the end of it. But apparently not.The new head of the FCC wants to undo the net neutrality protections you fought so hard for.His proposed changes open the door to your web traffic being slowed down, or even blocked altogether. You could be forced to pay extra to use your favorite apps. You could even be prevented from getting news from the sources you trust.Title II protects consumers and democracy by ensuring all voices can be heard.You know the drill. Here’s what to do:The FCC is taking comments from the public, and dearfcc.org is making it as simple as possible for you to make your voice heard.Go there now 👉 dearfcc.org ✌️You’ll just need to provide a name, an address, and then say a little bit about why rolling back Title II protections is a bad idea. If you’re not quite sure what to write, here’s something to get you started:I’m writing to urge you to keep our Open Internet rules based on Title II in place. Without them, we could lose the internet as we know it. The proposed changes to FCC rules would allow fast lanes for sites that pay, and force everyone else into slow lanes. We’ve already seen access to streaming services like Netflix, popular games like League of Legends, and communication platforms like FaceTime slowed down, or even blocked. Conditions like this hurt businesses large and small, and penalize the users who patronize them. The changes also open the door to unfair taxes on internet users, and could also make it harder for blogs, nonprofits, artists, and others who can’t pay up to have their voices heard.Please leave the existing net neutrality rules based on Title II in place.Thank you!If you need more ammo, feel free to quote these experts from our net neutrality Issue Time. TechCrunch and Battle for the Net also have some good starters.Everyone is counting on everyone else here. Do your part and tell the FCC to keep a free and open internet under Title II.

Bodies , Family, and Love: teaboot Humans are adorable. Supporting evidence 1. Humans say 'ow, even if they haven't actually been hurt. It's just a thing they say when they think they might have been hurt, but aren't sure yet. 2. Humans collect shiny things and decorate their bodies and nests with them. The shinier the better, although each individual has a unique taste for style and colouring 3. Humans are not an aquatic or even amphibious species, but they flock to bodies of water simply to play in it. They can't even hold their breath all that long; they just love to splashl 4. When night falls and the sky goes dark, humans become drowsy and begin to cocoon themselves in soft, fluffy bedding 5. Some humans spend time in each other's nests! Just for fun! It's not their nest; they're just visiting each other 6. Some humans use pigments and dyes to make their bodies flashy and colourful! They even attach shiny dangly bits to their cartalidgous membranes! 7. Humans are very clever, and sometimes adopt creatures from other species into their family units. They don't seem to notice the obvious differences, and often raise them alongside their own young! 8. If a human sees another creature in distress, they can commonly be observed trying to help! Even at their own risk, most humans are deeply compassionate creatures! 9. If a human hears a particularity catchy sound or tune, it ll often mimic it, even to the point of annoying themselves 10. Sneezes are entirely involuntary, and completely adorable. Especially when the human in question becomes frustrated 11. Humans love treats!!! Some more than others. Many humans will save these treats specifically for a later date when they are in need of comfort or reassurance. IE, pickles, pop tarts, Popsicles, etc 12. They're learning to travel in space!! They can't get very far, but they're trying!!l So far, they've made it to the end of their yard, and have found rocks shakespork this sounds like it was written by a really enthusiastic alien humanologist Source teaboot And we can pee anywhere we want

America, Anaconda, and Apparently: Honrath &Stacey Plambi a Heating Phono 237.50 oswinstark: trashmouse: brinconvenient: sabbatine: atsirhc: smalllittlekitty: The man holding this #BlackLivesMatter sign is Richmond (CA) police chief Chris Magnus, whose department has not lost an officer or killed a citizen since 2007, the year after he took over. This is not an accident, this peacefulness is the direct result of his leadership. Police departments across the country should be looking to his department as an example to be followed. ‘Chief Magnus changed the department from one that focused on “impact teams” of officers who roamed rough neighborhoods looking to make arrests to one that required all officers to adopt a “community policing” model, which emphasizes relationship building. “We had generations of families raised to hate and fear the Richmond police, and a lot of that was the result of our style of policing in the past. It took us a long time to turn that around, and we’re seeing the fruits of that now. There is a mutual respect now, and some mutual compassion.”’ the interview is pretty awesome if you want to watch it: https://www.yahoo.com/news/richmond-california-police-chief-chris-magnus-talks-community-policing-in-katie-couric-interview-044448393.html?ref=gs They also do regular officer trainings with roleplay scenarios and airsoft guns to teach them how to de-escalate, how to avoid firing when fired upon, and how to deal with people with weapons in a way that doesn’t end with a shootout. They also apparently go through the details of officer-involved shootings elsewhere, picking them apart and using them as teaching tools for what NOT to do or what the officer could have done to avoid shooting the person. Essentially, they take a proactive approach to not shooting people and put time, money, and effort into it. Richmond isn’t a low-crime area. Other cities could follow their model and almost certainly see results. Who’d have thought it would take so much work to learn how to just … NOT shoot people These are the sort of police officers who deserve respect.  The ones who take the time to build a relationship with the community they’re supposed to be protecting, and work to actually protect people instead of just shooting anyone who looked scary. In before anyone tries to say that the only reason this works is because Richmond is probably like “not as bad” as other places in the US I grew up here. I’m close to Richmond. It used to be one of the most dangerous cities in America. Literally. In 2006 it was #11 in the Most Dangerous Cities in America.  Now? It doesn’t even break the top 100. What changed? This guy became police chief in 2007. IT’S SO FUCKING WEIRD HOW THAT WORKS! *looks pointedly at every other police force in America*
