I might be revoking my libertarian card by saying this, but this is quite possibly one of the most worthwhile uses of tax money I鈥檝e seen in a long time.

If I were to start eliminating taxes tomorrow the money going to food programs would definitely not be high on the list. But that鈥檚 just it, the money we spent on those programs is peanuts in the grand scheme of how much we are taxed.My point is that when people express concern over taxation, they are almost immediately accused of not caring for humanitarian efforts, as though the government is the only humanitarian organization out there when in fact the government is the most inefficient and terrible humanitarian organizations out there.

blackqueerblog: A middle school in Achille, Oklahoma is closed following violent threats by parents on social media against Maddie, a 12-year-old transgender student who identifies as female and used the girls鈥 bathroom.Maddie had been using the staff bathroom at her old school but used the girls鈥 bathroom at the new school because she wasn鈥檛 sure where the staff bathroom was. She was then accused of peeping under a bathroom stall. Her mother said it was probably because she 鈥渓eans very far forward to use the bathroom.鈥漈hen the threats began on a private parents鈥 Facebook group for the school. The parents called Maddie 鈥渋t鈥 and 鈥渢hing鈥, suggested that her genitalia be mutilated to make her female (鈥渁 good sharp knife will do the job real quick鈥). One said it was 鈥渉unting season on them kind鈥 and said there was 鈥渘o bag limit.鈥滿addie鈥檚 mother Brandy Rose said she fears for her life: 鈥淭hese are adults making threats鈥 I don鈥檛 understand it. She鈥檚 an awesome kid. To see any fear in her, I can鈥檛 explain how bad that hurts me for them to hurt her.鈥滽XII reports: 鈥淭he sheriff said the mother filed a protective order against one parent but no other arrests have been made, however several agencies including the FBI are stepping in to see if any comments constitute a hate crime.鈥漇ee the screenshots:Sorry to say this but if we have to think about whether or not threatening to cut a 12 year old child is a hate crime means there is no hope for us.
