College, Community, and Donald Trump: Bloomberg Business @business Follow "I don't believe in free college": Hillary Clinton during #DemDebate bloom.bg/1 K1JVXR RETWEETS L 136 LIKES justaphage: loseremo: holyromanhomo: fonzworthcutlass: scrunyuns: lagonegirl: Of course you don’t. Free college might hinder the school-to-prison pipeline your  prison owning donors depend on 👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆👆 welp; Actual quote, in context: “I believe that we should make community college free. We should have debt-free college if you got to a public college or university. You should not have to borrow a dime to pay tuition… I disagree with free college for everybody. I don’t think taxpayers should be paying to send Donald Trump’s kids to college.“ [video link] Don’t spread misinformation just to fit a narrative, Clinton is advocating for there to be a cap on who gets free college so that the government doesn’t have to subsidize the education of people with enough disposable income to pay for it themselves. The plan she’s proposing would have a better chance of being passed, is more cost-effective, and still opens up higher education to low-income individuals who previously couldn’t afford it.  the op lagonegirl literally ended up being a russian psyop im losing my mind Reblogging this as an example of what the Russian interference here on tumblr was. I have seen some people in the past days casting doubts on Tumblr because the blogs that were banned had social justice content.  But that was the point exactly. They posted some real things and a lot of half-truths that would appeal to the kind of politics on here and therefore spread disinformation to discourage us from participating in stopping Trump through the only option we had. I’m glad tumblr left these posts up so we could see for ourselves.  I don’t know if it actually worked on anyone, I hope we all remember to check our sources before making our decisions, but life is short and maybe some people didn’t.  There are plenty of real social justice blogs available still, so I hope we will follow those instead.

Animals, Complex, and Food: jackafz: diamond-dogsick: jackafz: earthenwares: typewriterdaily: bruises-bedtimestories: niadil: Koko, a female gorilla that can communicate using sign language has a message for mankind. This is unbelievable why doesn’t this have more notes what the actual fuck holy actual fuck if she decided to say this herself w/out direction then like??? oh my GOD This is so important Omg you freaks watch the PBS documentary on her!!!! It’s unreal and she’s my hero OMG I’m already stanning for her. The queen of pop!! this made me cry. we have ruined the world, and it is our responsibility to protect the earth that gave us life, that gives us food, shelter, that inspires awe and wonder. We have to protect the species who did nothing to deserve a world where their deaths seem imminent. This planet is all we have. There is nothing else to do and nowhere else we can go. Sure some of us can go to mars but there are almost 7 billion people on earth. Also, it is immoral to escape this planet and leave it behind because we killed everything that lived in it. we HAVE to start putting environmentalism at the TOP of our list. Rich countries must help poor countries. We must do it for ourselves but also for the countless species that did nothing to deserve this. If you know anything about biology/ecology, in a sense, we are all in this together. We are all related genetically since we  all came from a common ancestor. We are interconnected genetically, but also for survival.. it is a complex chain that often depends on antecedent parts within that “chain/web/tree”. For example, without bees, certain birds, certain animals, we will have no food, flowers, fruits, etc. We are all in this together because we depend on each other. Humans have a little leeway since we have technology and science to help us “beat” this chain reaction, but there will be a point where a decrease in plant and animal biodiversity will kill us off too- no matter how hard we try to survive without our animal and plant brethren. We owe it to ourselves (and our future generations) but also to them.

Community, Crying, and Fuck You: A Straight Guy Was Brought To Tears After He Asked LGBT People If They buzzfeed.com firelorcl: bqork: firelorcl: childservices: who cares lmfao!!!! i hope nobody is making fun of this guy for this like he opened up a platform where lgbt people could tell him of their experiences and their voices could be heard and they moved him to tears like what is wrong with that what is wrong with a straight person listening to our experiences and acknowledging that we have it tougher than he does you stupid idiot the problem is that this guy is bringing the center of attention to himself. HE’S the one who is so SAD about this problem, HE’S the one who suffers, and now HE’S the hero for bringing this to light when our community has doing that this entire time. also he’s a really big slacktivist by just crying on camera without making a change lol. this is white straight guy comes to save the LGBT community because we can’t cry for ourselves. fuck you firelorcl, and this guy too. i was gonna ignore this but i don’t think you even watched the video or paid attention to it at all he literally says in the video not to take his word for it and encourages people to listen to those that experience discrimination first hand because he obviously acknowledges that he doesn’t go through any of this so his words mean next to nothing compared to the testimonies of non straight people that actually deal with these things not to mention most of the video is bringing light to other people’s comments the video is barely about himself and i don’t think we should be attacking this guy for treating us like human beings and encouraging others to do so too like you can’t complain about straight people not listening to us and disregarding our voices and then complain when someone actually does it i mean yes you’re right we don’t need a straight man to save us but it doesn’t hurt having people bring light to our experiences
