The sad fact is that 41% of New York City babies are aborted.
The chilling fact is that 59.8% of black New York City babies are aborted.
Only FOUR out of TEN black children make it outside of the womb in New York City.
We must stop the industrialized killing of our unborn children. What legacy will you leave?
The sad fact is that each night, more than 21,000 children are homeless in NYC.
The number of people sleeping in shelters has grown 60 percent in the past decade.
Families make up 3/4ths of the homeless population.
53% of the homeless in shelters are black, 32% are Latino.
65.5 percent of high school seniors graduate in NYC.
There are currently 12,568 children in foster care in NYC.
In 2011, there were over 90,000 separate reports of abuse/neglect in NYC.
There are 131 children in secure detention. 112 in non-secure detention.
There are more than 108,000 children in NYC who have a parent that is incarcerated. More than 73 percent of women who are incarcerated have a child under the age of 18.
But go ahead and try to explain how you care about children. Just try to justify how you can ignore all of these children, for a fetus.
Forcing people to stay pregnant does nothing for children. Advocate for better sex education. Fight to help PoC who find themselves with unwanted pregnancies. Don’t ignore the fact that nearly 90 percent of pregnancies that end in abortion for PoC were unplanned, use this information to help them.
My legacy is one of respect, understanding, education, and compassion. You’ll catch on eventually.
That rebuttal is the best thing I’ve read all week.
Tens of thousands in Hong Kong are spending the night occupying a major highway, demanding free and fair elections independent of Beijing’s influence. Beijing has responded with militarized police, and is censoring photos of the protests on social media.
the world is on fire
Fuck Yeah Feminist Thor.
#okay i love this both for the message it contains #and for the fact that now i’m just#imagining #thor #wandering around earth on his days off from avenging shit#and casually stopping people who are being assholes and being like #HELLO #I AM NOT OF THIS REALM #AND YOUR BEHAVIOR IS REPREHENSIBLE BY THE STANDARDS OF ALL CIVILIZED BEINGS #HAVE YOU PERHAPS CONSIDERED BEHAVING IN A LESS ABHORRENT FASHION #FOR I KNOW THAT IF YOU ATTEMPTED SUCH FOLLY UPON ASGARD EVEN MY BROTHER LOKI WOULD LOOK UPON YOU AS FOUL#ADDITIONALLY I AM SEEKING WHAT I AM TOLD IS THE BEST VENDOR OF DOGS THAT ARE HOT IN THIS CITY #IF PERHAPS YOU WOULD GUIDE ME I WOULD BE WILLING TO RECONSIDER MY ASSESSMENT OF YOUR CHARACTER #and people just#staring #at him #in fear/amazement #while he frowns at them radiating good intentions and Powers They Know Not Of #and his cape billows in the wind
That’s it. That’s settled. Thor’s superpowers are Good Intentions Radiation and Powers You Know Not Of. They’re super effective.
I also hate sociology teachers coddling white kids “we’re not blaming you no one is attacking you okay” like actually you need to be teaching them that if their immediate thought when they see the consequences of racism and white privilege is “my white feelings” there’s something societally wrong because they’re repeatedly putting their feelings of being sad about being privileged (cry me a river) on par with or above poc’s actual oppression
every woman on tumblr should have this on their dash
And every man
Look how nobody’s yelling or arguing or making things into a competition. Look how this is to straight up educate people through a different perspective. Look how effective that makes the message.
