What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he…
The fact that trans women have just been completely booted out of this conversation on police brutality smfh…
In 2008, a black trans woman was severely beaten by police and was preparing to sue the Memphis Police Department. She was killed execution style shortly after and no one has yet to be arrested.. Her name was Duanna Johnson. Remember her name…

At first I though this was a joke
Don’t ignore this Tumblr
Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.
This reminds me of how a friend of mine was abused by the mother of his child. She was mentally unstable and used to berate him constantly and would smack him in the head all the time. It really pissed me off. Then one night she threw hot coffee in his face and tried to stab him with a screwdriver. The cops hauled him off to jail because she made up a sob story that painted herself as the victim.
Once he left her, he stayed with me and it was a nightmare. She stalked him and me. She would drive by my house obsessively at all hours of the day and night (her muffler made a weird sound so I know it was her). She started showing up at my job, showing up at the places I frequented around town, and filling up my voicemail with dead air. The cops were no help.
One day she got bold enough to talk her way into my home by conning my elderly grandmother, whom I was taking care of, while I was out. She went in my room and went through my stuff (creepy), then found him napping on the couch and attacked him. My grandmother witnessed the whole thing. He grabbed her by the arms, forced her out the front door, and locked it. The cops were called again. They said they’d go and ‘talk’ to her.
The next day we were watching a movie and there was a knock at the door. The police had come to arrest him. She filed a complaint against him and shown off some bruises on her arms from the altercation that she swore were completely unprovoked. My grandmother saw the whole thing since she was in the living room too and testified on his behalf. He still ended up serving jail time.
No one takes male domestic violence victims seriously. They only see males as perpetrators.
Please, if you witness abuse, no matter WHO the recipient is, report it. If someone you know if being abused (not just physically - in any way) help them. Connect them to resources. Gender doesn’t matter in this case - no one deserves to be abused.

GoFundMe is allowing a campaign for people to donate money to Darren Wilson, the cop who killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.
When called on this, and how it violates their ToS, GoFundMe’s response was to delete the hateful, disgusting, racist comments from the donations. They refused to end the campaign. Apparently it is only “promoting hate, violence, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime” if people can see the deplorable sentiments behind the donations. Somehow deleting the evidence of those sentiments magically changes what those donations are for: rewarding a police officer for killing Michael Brown.
This is absolutely a direct violation of GoFundMe’s ToS, yet GoFundMe is refusing to act. These are people giving money to an individual that gunned down an unarmed black teen. He is profiting from this killing, and it directly promotes racial intolerance and violence. There is no reason why GoFundMe should allow this campaign to continue…
… Except that GoFundMe gets 5% of the cut. In this case, 5% of 235k is $12,500. GoFundMe and Darren Wilson both are profiting off the killing of Michael Brown, and GoFundMe has decided they’d rather take their cut of the money than follow their own ToS. $12,500 is apparently what it takes to abandon justice.
Please, join in the boycott of GoFundMe, and consider signal boosting this.
Go fund me has done other shitty things as well.
The original fund has closed — but keep reading because the story gets better! Gofundme has allowed them to set up a second campaign. Don’t worry, racists, the $250K from the first fund is still going to Mike Brown’s killer, as is the money from the new campaign! And guess what, now you can reward a cop for violently executing an unarmed, innocent teenager and do it TAX-FREE! The proudly racist scum running this fuckery have aligned with the Missouri Police Union’s 501(c)(3) non-profit charity as an intermediary for Darren Wilson so that people can donate tax-free (almost a thousand people have donated to it today, in case you were hoping this would die off). The Ferguson Police Department is directing people to send donations to it.
You know what? I really hate when I go to fact-check a tumblr reblog and it’s EVEN FUCKING WORSE THAN IT ALREADY WAS.Several months ago, WePay, the makers do the software on which gofundme runs (along with several other crowdfunding sites)canceled the medical fundraiser of a woman who does legal sex work, because she retweeted a friend’s offer to provide adult photos — also legal — to donors. There is no altruism in online “charity” crowdfunding sites. They’re in it for the money, period. It’s why they monitor social media (they say that the bank they use requires it, but cannot actually prove that) but not their own comments, it’s why they’ll permit hate sites to send people to donate money to Darren Wilson as a “bounty” on Mike Brown but won’t permit a cam girl to send people to donate for a naughty photo — the latter hurts their “reputation” while the former is just people’s “legally protected opinions.” Either way, they make their thousands and thousands and laugh all the way to the banks. There isn’t enough money on earth to justify how these bottom feeders operate or using their sites and giving them more money. If you’re running a fundraiser or considering one, you may end up better off doing it the old fashioned way with a post office box at the USPS. There’s more physical work involved but at least you aren’t enriching ethically bankrupt jackasses, and you don’t have to pay more for the PO box the more money you raise.
Famous for its scenery, cinematography, and near complete lack of special effects (almost exclusively used simply to remove bystanders from shots), The Fall was filmed over a period of four years in over twenty countries, including India, Namibia, South Africa, Italy, and Indonesia. One review said, “See it for no other reason than because it exists. There will never be another like it.”
