Really funny how people making fun of immigrants speaking “broken english” only know one fucking language.

Palestinian martyrs.

Men are civilians too. This phenomenon of excluding men from civilian counts when bombs drop in countries like Palestine and Pakistan is deeply and disgustingly racist. And this is not a war. There are no two sides so there are no legitimate military targets. The murder of an occupied people by occupier is always, always the murder of innocent civilians.

"Women are coerced into hair removal, indoctrinated by society to see it as a necessity. They are making decisions as to what type of razor they use, whether they use cream or wax, whether they get a professional to do it, but these are secondary decisions; the initial choice is whether to remove hair at all, and this decision was made by someone else, long ago, with little thought as to our best intentions. Along with the decisions about whether body hair is attractive, or hygienic. Of course, we all have personal preference, but when every channel in society tells you that body hair is repulsive, there is only one conclusion to come to. It is near-impossible to have a true preference. And until women are no longer chastised, mocked, and insulted for their body hair, we cannot say that we have that choice."

"

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.

You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.

As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”

Power Structure of Oppression

Yes. Yes. YES. 

I’m just gonna leave this here, in case anyone thought their fee fees were more important than systematic oppression 

I will honestly reblog this every time it comes across my dash. It is so important. 

Yes, this is essential. People don’t realized how the littlest thing can affect the way we live.

Who is really using human shields? The IDF of course.

I think the most ironic thing about this whole “Hamas uses human shields” allegation, is that the IDF is notorious for using Palestinians as human shields.

This is far from unusual:

B’Tselem: IDF uses Palestinians as human shield.

B’Tselem: IDF used Palestinian girl as human shield in Nablus.

Two IDF soldiers charged with using 9 year old human shield in Gaza.

Israel has constantly used this allegation not only against civilians in Gaza, but also when it bombed civilian populations in Lebanon during the 2006 war. Witness accounts and international rights organizations have stated time and time again that no evidence to this has been found either in Lebanon or in Gaza.

But somehow, the word of Israel, a country that needs to hire people to spread its propaganda online, still has a shred of credibility.

The Times of Israel is a zionist online newspaper founded by a former reporter from the right-wing zionist Jerusalem Post. Its blog section is always filled with incitement and propaganda against Palestinians. Today, however, they crossed a line. Although the moral repugnancy of this sentiment gave no one working at this rag second thoughts, the backlash on twitter has now forced the editors to remove the piece. 

The name of the author is Yochanan Gordon. May this haunt him for the rest of his pathetic life.
