Community, Memes, and Pressure: justinomora1 A day before Karla Estrada went public, I notified our Board of Directors about Ivan Ceja's transgressions and demanded his resignation. I did my due diligence to listen and talk to all the affected individuals (Karla, Denea, Yadira, etc) and gather as much evidence as possible. It's been a long and challenging process. Since Tuesday, I have been putting enormous internal pressure on Ivan Ceja (@ivncja, Executive Director) and Francisco Barragan (our Board Chairman) to cooperate with me and Rebecca Medina (our other board member) and take this seriously! Due to the complexity of the issue, I have been advised not to post on the UndocuMedia platform as this can be used agaisnt me (I hope y'all understand). Upon learning about Ivan's transgressions against Karla, I confronted Ivan and have exhausted all internal procedures to hold him accountable. I support and stand with Karla, Denea, Yadira, and any other person that might come out. I support their public calls for accountability and change. This is necessary Repost @JustinoMora1, co-founder of UndocuMedia: This is what transparency and accountability look like. This is a difficult and challenging process; however, it is needed in order to bring about justice, allow us to grow as individuals and as a community, hold people accountable, and create a stronger movement. . Please read the testimonies in this order: 👉🏽 Karla (@karla_estrada_222): bit.ly-KarlaStatement . 👉🏽 Denea (@creole_goddess94): bit.ly-DeneaStatement . 👉🏽 Yadira (@ywm_88): bit.ly-YadiraStatement . @UndocuMedia is bigger than me and Ivan Ceja. UndocuMedia is a philosophy and a large community of loving, caring, and passionate individuals. UndocuMedia is about YOU ALL! Thanks to our tens of thousands of dedicated followers, we have stopped people's deportations, assisted in natural disasters, advocated for immigration issues, etc. Rebecca Medina (our other Board Member) and I ask for your patience and support. We won't stay silent and stand with Karla, Denea, Yadira, and others. . Please let others know.

A Dream, Apparently, and Bad: YOU SA You AVE Lindt will DONATE 10 to Autism Speaks for every Lindt GOLD BUNNY purchased. www.Lindt.com AUTISM SPEAKS AUTISM SPEAKS pink-rainbow-sparkles: sleepy-hylian: queen-val: mrs-transmuter: elaxisfae: lolhooplacatz: crazyeddieme: just-a-penis-with-a-dream: kibblesundbitches: unaspi: bluechirri: fishyinspace: supervengers: cishetsnotinvited: transheadcold: nauticus: friendly reminder not to support lindt this easter season, or apparently ever again, because they support autism speaks. Wowwwwwwww SIGH. can someone please explain why autism speaks is so bad? because they’re adamant that autism is a disease that can be “cured”. They don’t have a single autistic person on their board. Autism Speaks produces advertisements, small films, ect. about what a burden autistic people are to a society. They only spend about 4% of their money on “family services.” They create a stereotype that makes it hard for actual autistic people, like myself, be heard and recognized as actually autistic. I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder before they realized that I actually showed signs of Asperger’s. They don’t actually help us.  That’s the problem with Autism Speaks.  (tw for violence, ableism, abuse, murder, and death) It goes deeper than not having any autistic board members. Many of the allistics running the organization promote the horrific notion that you’re better off dead than autistic, and their influence and “activism” only supports the ideology resulting in the continued murder of autistic children and adults by their parents and caregivers. Former Autism Speaks board member Harry Slatkin, whose wife, Laura, continues to serve on the Board of Directors, stated in an interview with Town and Country while still a board member that sometimes he hoped their autistic son David would drown in the backyard pond rather than “suffer like this all his life.” Evidencing a pattern of similarly violent rhetoric, Autism Speaks is also responsible for the 2006 PSA “Autism Every Day“ in which their then Vice President states on camera that she considered putting her autistic daughter in the car and driving off a bridge, and that the only reason she refrained from doing so was because her other, non-autistic daughter would have been waiting for her at home—her autistic daughter was in the room as she made these statements. Furthermore, the producer of this PSA explicitly admitted that the film was intentionally staged to portray negative images of autistic people and their families. Only four days following the release of “Autism Every Day,” pathologist Karen McCarron smothered her autistic daughter with a garbage bag. McCarron stated that she murdered Katie because her “autism had not been improving,” had thought about killing Katie, that made an earlier brief attempt at suffocation, wanted to cure Katie, thought killing Katie would make her “complete” in heaven, and wanted to live without autism and thus had to kill Katie. Investigators found that McCarron was obsessed with different treatments for Katie. (See People v. FRANK-McCARRON, 934 NE 2d 76 - Ill: Appellate Court, 3rd Dist. 2010.) Though it is not presently possible to draw a direct connection between Autism Speaks’ PSA and Katie’s murder, this crime and dozens like it only underscore how the kind of rhetoric that Autism Speaks favors only serves to recklessly endanger the lives of autistic people. (source article) Autism Speaks also publicly supports the Judge Rotenberg Center, a group home for autistic and neurodivergent students that uses “treatments” like food and sleep deprivation and electric shock to try and train the residents into acting neurotypical. The center has changed states three times in an attempt to bypass regulation against abusive treatment, and their practices have resulted in the deaths of more than one student. It’s not just an issue of Autism Speaks making it harder for us to get proper diagnoses and treatment. Autism Speaks is actively killing us. Well shit. I was eyeing up their strawberries and cream lindor the other day but this is more important than delicious chocolate. you all need to know this. You really do. Please do not support Lindt or anything that supports autism speaks. Please. Seriously Lindt makes my favourite chocolate ever?? but My boyfriend is my favourite person ever so looks like I’m gonna go find a better candy maker, one that doesn’t support murder. ghirardelli lindt, and not just because of the autism speaks thing. I have autism and IM NOT JOKING THIS IS IMPORTANT Exactly. The autism “research” that autism speaks does, reeks very heavily of eugenics. Okay, but it’s not enough to just not buy this brand of chocolate. It has to be made known exactly what kind if org Autism Speaks is. The reason they spend so much on PR is so that the general public never funds out how reprehensible they are. No non-autistic person I speak to is ever aware of these things. If you find out an company is partnered with Autism Speaks, contact them. Call, email, write letters. Offer alternative charities. It may not work every time, but the more people you tell, the fewer people will be likely to donate to them in the future. this post is from 2014, anyone know if lindt still support autism speaks? https://www.autismspeaks.org/site-wide/lindt Unfortunately this is an ongoing thing every year. In 2017 Lindt has stopped supporting Autism Speaks. They have nothing up on their website about ending the partnership, but if you email and ask they’ll get back to you and say they’re going in new directions.

Ass, Baseball, and Be Like: I want a German Shepherd Husky @DrSmashlove Bruh I get DM from ladies all the time asking something like this: "smash I'm talking to a dude named Mike how can I tell if he likes me". Alright. Ladies. First things first. Let me clarify some shit. This is 2016 damn near 2017. In no event and under no circumstance should u be waiting on a dude to text u, wondering if he like u. If he make u feel like u the one...u just know that shit. If he don't, then the uncertainty is on him. With that said don't only talk to Mike. I'm not saying u gotta swipe 20 randoms on tinder and start texting all of them just because - I'm just saying keep your options open. "But smash I'm not a hoe, I'm not like that." Lol...whoa derr lil mama 🖐. First imma need u to stop it with this word "hoe". That's a word invented by men with small PPs who don't want women to be sexually empowered. Second it don't make u a hoe if Mike text u every couple days and on that basis u also texting Ted and Jeff. It just mean u young and pretty and u got options. If u texting with Ted then u ain't waiting on Mike. Mike gonna feel that vibe that u ain't just waiting on his next move and HE gon hurry up and make a move, u feel me? Take the power away from Mike, he don't deserve all that power ("but smash I hate playing games argh dating sucks I'm just gonna live with cats 😖" - stop it with the cats before I show up at your door and fvck u back to your senses, I'll do it - I'll show up naked wearing only a Cubs baseball cap, timberlands, and white gym socks, holding a rose - your neighbors gon be like "who was dingaling man with the rose, having guests like that violates the condo association policy, even though the Board of Directors would like to note that your guest's PP was beautiful, shapely, and had good curvature" - focus here, woman, I'm tryina not get u evicted 😂). Anyway in 2017 forget about whether a man who u like, likes u back. Keep it G. Keep it fun. Let Mike know u don't need his ass because nothing light a fire under a motherfvcker quicker than a girl who half-ignoring his childish ass. Part 2 to come in my next caption ❤.
