Bailey Jay, College, and Drive By: 2 hours ago 545 Likes Brazilian rights activist Marielle Franco assassinated in drive- by shooting Rio city councillor Marielle Franco was killed in a targeted shooting on Wednesday night. She was an outspoken critic of police violence and deploying the army into poor neighbourhoods of Rio MarielleFranco Rest in power! 💔🙏🏾 . Via The Root: "Marielle Franco, 38, a black politician from Rio de Janeiro, died fighting for the rights of women and favela dwellers. As a councilwoman from the Maré favela, she denounced the police brutality that favela residents, most of them black, regularly experienced. . On Wednesday around 9:20 p.m., armed men gunned the councilwoman down in her car in the center of Rio de Janeiro with nine shots—four to the head. Her driver, Anderson Pedro Gomes, also died. She had just left an event that she organized about black women’s empowerment. . Her death touched so many people that supporters organized vigils and protests in more than 20 cities across Brazil. Most of these protests were against the genocide of black people in Brazil. For Afro-Brazilians, Franco proved that a black person from a favela could be educated, have dignity and also fight against the social injustice that they suffer from every day. For women, she proved that they could overcome sexism and machismo in Brazil. But her death is hitting Afro-Brazilian women, who suffer the most from Brazil’s violent, racist and sexist society, the hardest. . “She died because she was a combative black woman,” said Lua Nascimento, an Afro-Brazilian college classmate of Franco’s who attended a protest on her behalf in Salvador, Brazil. “She was executed because she was a black favela dweller who fought against the murder of black favela dwellers. The genocide of the black population continues in this country. ” . Thousands of people gathered in front of Rio de Janeiro’s council chambers to pay homage to Franco, who was buried Thursday night. To show their digital support for her, Brazilians are changing their Facebook profile photos to those of Franco and using the hashtag MariellePresente, which translates to “Marielle is here.” . Amnesty International, the longtime leader of a campaign against the genocide of black people in Brazil, demanded that her death be rigorously investigated. With those nine shots, Franco became one more statistic in this genocide. Just over 50 percent of Brazil’s population of 200 million is black ... [Continued in comments]

Bad, Crying, and Family: You're synonymous with being a man's man. What was the lasto thing that made you cry? I went to theatre school. I took two semesters of ballet. I'm the sissy in my family. I cry with pretty great regularity. It's not entirely accurate to equate me with manliness. I stand for my principals and I work hard and I have good manners but machismo is a double-sided coin. Alot of people think it requires behavior that can quickly veer into misogyny and things I consider indecent. We've been sold this weird John Wayne mentality that fistfights and violence are vital to being a man. I'd rather hug than punch. Crying at something that moves you to joy or sadness is just as manly as chopping down a tree or punching out a bad guy. To answer your question, I recently saw Alicia Keys perform live. I'd never seen her before and the sheer golden, heavenly talent issuing from her and her singing instrument had both my wife and me in tears. What a gorgeous gift she has. Her voice is so great. And I had no shame Tabout crying.1 If you live your life openly with your emotions, that's a more manly stance than burying them The Babahuck @TylerHuckabee Follow We don't appreciate Nick Offerman nearly as much as we should 3:46 PM-Oct 16, 2017 Nashville, TN 234 t 32,770 81,142 <p>Ron Swanson sums up what it means to be a real man via /r/wholesomememes <a href="http://ift.tt/2xbJVN8">http://ift.tt/2xbJVN8</a></p>

Memes, Yo, and Okay: NO cedas el asiento a una mujer! HONESTA HONESTA El acto de ceder el lugar a una mujer (que no es anciana ni esta embarazada) revela que inconscientemente creemos que la mujer se cansa mas que el hombre por su naturaleza inferior. No es un acto de caballerosidad.. Okay, esto es demasiado!! La cuenta de la que tomé esta foto (no la mencionaré) me gustaba pero pienso que ya se está pasando de radical. O sea que si yo quiero ceder el asiento a una mujer o chica no puedo porque es machismo?? Alguien más ve lo estúpido que eso suena? Díganme que no soy el único por favor 😕 Tal vez solo ya llevo un buen rato sentado y le quiero dar a alguien mi asiento. Cuál es el problema? Yo cuando no estoy muy cansado de la uni cedo mi asiento o directamente me quedo de pie. Por simple caballerosidad o educación. Una mujer también puede ceder un asiento. Honestamente, este post debería ser más bien para que las mujeres también puedan ceder asiento sin ningún problema o sin que se les mire mal, o que incluso un chico se lo ceda a otro. Pero no para que directamente nunca cedamos el asiento a nadie porque no, qué machista 😒 Es ridículo, disculpen pero esto es una ridiculez. O sea la educación y caballerosidad son machismo, si le abro la puerta a alguien estoy asumiendo que son débiles y no pueden abrir sus puertas. Por favor 😤 ~Dante.
