The above article is an update.  Her mother went to appeal to keep her out of the psychiatric ward and lost.  She will be institutionalized because of her expression of her gender.  She will be held until she conforms to male gender and then released to foster care, not her mother who was supporting her.

Please, if you haven’t signed the petition, sign it, reblog it, ask your friends to sign it. We’ve managed to get 40K signatures for a pageant model, we’ve only gotten 11K for a little girl about to have her life ruined.  Lets get on the ball and spread the word.

Sign It.

#this is disgusting #a little girl is going to be INSTITUTIONALIZED#and TAKEN FROM HER MOTHER #because she identifies as a gender other than the one society has assigned her? #what. the. fuck. #NO #lgbt

Ms. Talackova has been disqualified from the Miss Universe Canada contest solely for being transgender. This is discriminatory, unjust, and quite frankly disgusting. She is a woman and deserves to be treated as any other woman would be. What kind of genitals she was or was not born with (and even what kind of genitals she has today) is completely irrelevant. This petition is to get her reinstated as a contestant, since she was unfairly disqualified.

There are only 7 signatures. WE CAN DO BETTER THAN THIS!

Obama And ISP’s To Launch Largest Digital Spying Scheme In History (Must Read)
If you download potentially copyrighted software, videos or music, your Internet service provider (ISP) has been watching, and they’re coming for you.
Specifically, they’re coming for you on July 1st.
That’s the date when the nation’s largest ISPs will all voluntarily implement a new anti-piracy plan that will engage network operators in the largest digital spying scheme in history, and see some users’ bandwidth completely cut off until they sign an agreement saying they will not download copyrighted materials.
Word of the start date has been largely kept secret since ISPs announced their plans last June. The deal was brokered by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), and coordinated by the Obama Administration. The same groups have weighed in heavily on controversial Internet policies around the world, with similar facilitation by the Obama’s Administration’s State Department.
The July 1st date was revealed by the RIAA’s CEO and top lobbyist, Cary Sherman, during a publishers’ conference on Wednesday in New York, according to technology publication CNet.
The content industries calls this scheme a “graduated response” plan, which will see 
-Time Warner Cable
-Cablevision
-Comcast
-Verizon
-AT&T 
and others spying on users’ Internet activities and watching for potential copyright infringement. Users who are “caught” infringing on a creator’s protected work can then be interrupted with a notice that piracy is forbidden by law and carries penalties of up to $150,000 per infringement, requiring the user to click through saying they understand the consequences before bandwidth is restored, and they could still be subject to copyright infringement lawsuits.
Read More
Response: This is much worse than SOPA/PIPA and ACTA. It doesn’t necessarily censor the internet but it spys on everything you do. Your ENTIRE web history will be watched and recorded and might even assist the government. This was coordinated by Obama and his administration with the help of the MPAA and RIAA. 
What is so dangerous about this is that this is not a law it is a policy adopted by several companies. That means this will not be debated in Congress and you will agree to be spied on by signing a contract with the company.
Internet censorship is becoming a reality and now the corporate elite will legally be able to spy on you. If we spread this and cause an uproar like what we did with SOPA, maybe they will back down. Either way people NEED to know about this.

the problem i see with this is that there’s going to be jails absolutely overflowing and people are going to go homeless with debt. the country will go to absolute shit, chaos is going to break out. i don’t see how this is going to do any good whatsoever. we’ll just see how well this follows through when millions upon millions of teenagers are owing MILLIONS of dollars to companies and are in debt for the rest of their lives, in jail for YEARS just for downloading a handful of movies and a few hundred songs.

For those asking what you can do to help, please link to visiblechildren.tumblr.com wherever you see KONY 2012 posts. And tweet a link to this page to famous people on Twitter who are talking about KONY 2012!

I do not doubt for a second that those involved in KONY 2012 have great intentions, nor…

I know this has nothing to do with dresses, but as this is kind of a big thing on tumblr (we all know how much you all love social justice slacktivism) and I have let’s just say a shit ton of followers, this needs to be promoted.

There’s a lot of tumbling going on about the so-called “KONY 2012” campaign being launched by the charity, “Invisible Children,” which clains to be about educating the world about Joseph Kony, the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda, who uses child soldiers to do some of the most horrific things imaginable.   While Joseph Kony may be one of the most vile people to ever live, and undoubtedly help is needed in the region, Invisible Children is not the charity people should be supporting.  Not only does very little of its money go to direct aid, it supports military intervention in taking out Kony, which would undoubtedly cause the deaths of countless numbers of his child soldiers and only serve to cause more chaos in a troubled region.  While it’s good that knowledge of Kony’s crimes is being shared, if you want to support a charity, try supporting a non-violent one.

The following day, I attended a workshop about preventing gender violence, facilitated by Katz. There, he posed a question to all of the men in the room: “Men, what things do you do to protect yourself from being raped or sexually assaulted?”

Not one man, including myself, could quickly answer the question. Finally, one man raised his hand and said, “Nothing.” Then Katz asked the women, “What things do you do to protect yourself from being raped or sexually assaulted?” Nearly all of the women in the room raised their hand. One by one, each woman testified:

“I don’t make eye contact with men when I walk down the street,” said one.
“I don’t put my drink down at parties,” said another.
“I use the buddy system when I go to parties.”
“I cross the street when I see a group of guys walking in my direction.”
“I use my keys as a potential weapon.”

The women went on for several minutes, until their side of the blackboard was completely filled with responses. The men’s side of the blackboard was blank. I was stunned. I had never heard a group of women say these things before. I thought about all of the women in my life — including my mother, sister and girlfriend — and realized that I had a lot to learn about gender.

fucksociety95: this picture should have more then the amount of notes it has, this shows us that not ever thing is “picture perfect” and that behind that smile and those eyes there is fear . So I beg you to please reblog this instead of a pair of shoes, someone smoking a blunt, and clothes … because this picture is literally worth 1,000 words.
