Fictive Prophecies

Strength is to never give in, wisdom to know when to be weak.

Sam Pepper handcuffs himself to women on the street, refusing to release one woman until she kisses him

jean-luc-gohard:

In January, Sam Pepper uploaded a video called “How To Get A Girlfriend Easy” in which he sneaks up behind or beside unsuspecting women on the street and handcuffs them to himself. He then tells them they’re “his girlfriend now.”

When one victim reacts furiously, saying “No! I don’t know you! Take it off!” and demands that he remove the handcuffs, he refuses and replies with “We’re dating now.” She tries again, “Look, I don’t know where you’re from, but we don’t do this in America. Take this off,” while fighting with the cuffs. He refuses again, insisting they’re “going on a date.” She then tells him that she’s married, to which he says “No, you’re married to me now,” and refuses yet again to remove the handcuffs.

At the end of the video, another woman is pleading with him to undo the handcuffs, and he refuses to until she kisses him on the lips. Pepper appears to think the entire scenario is hilarious at best and endearingly misguided at worst, while the women being “pranked” are visibly livid, terrified, and profoundly uncomfortable.

NONE OF THESE THINGS ARE PRANKS.

We need to stop calling assault by white men on men of color and women of all races “pranks,” because it makes them seem lighthearted and fun, not like the violent criminal acts they are.

destroy this new idea that a woman can’t be strong if she cries over a man she’s lost. destroy the idea that you have to be cold and emotionally detached in order to be a strong woman

A Texas man is under arrest after gunning down a SWAT team member as the officer quietly tried to climb in through the apartment’s window during predawn hours.
Police State USAreports  that a resident fatally shot Detective Charles “Chuck” Dinwiddie as the officer climbed in through a ground level window as part of a “no knock” raid. The officers were there due to suspicion that residents were in possession of controlled substances.
Upon hearing a noise, resident Marvin Louis Guy, 50, opened fire on the unidentified officers, shooting three others as well, although only one fatally.
Guy is currently being held on capital murder charges in connection with Dinwiddie’s death, even though it’s unclear how Guy was supposed to know that the men crawling in through the window were police officers since they hadn’t identified themselves.
The evidence sheet lists a laptop, a safe, a pistol, and a glass pipe, but no drugs were found. Given the evidence, why did police deem it necessary to seek a “no knock” warrant and why did a judge sign off on it?
Very little is known about Mr. Guy, but Dinwiddie left behind two children, all because his SWAT team went creeping into a home where the residents didn’t even have any drugs. Is that the best use of law enforcement tax dollars?
Guy’s bond has been set at $3 million dollars.

brah………………. BRUV……………………..

this happened in Texas where it is perfectly legal to shoot and kill someone who is breaking into your home

Literally everybody knows that in Texas you can open fire on someone who comes onto your property without permission. What in the hell did they expect??

Where the NRA at? In the largest pro-gun state of Texass, those second amendment rights only apply if you’re white.

Please Help a Brother Out:  Come Fund Top Surgery for Bryan
By now practically everyone in the Queer Nation has heard the story of the really unfortunate incidents that occurred in March 2013 on the Washington Mall during the Supreme Court arguments on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).  But do you know the real people who it happened to?  Well meet the guy who was holding the Trans* Flag that day.  
As Bryan Ellicott explains, what started as a happy and exciting day of LGBT Pride & History turned into his ”Supreme Court Marriage Rally Transphobic Experience From Hell” when a staffer and one of the big Gay Inc. groups (ok so it was HRC again) became upset to see other than approved people and symbols cluttering up their photo-op moments and tried to run the riffraff off.  With Bryan his Flag suddenly thrust unwilling into a staring role as "unapproved riffraff".
A political activist for the progressive and LGBT community Bryan describes himself as an ”open and proud bisexual transman”. 
A native of Staten Island NY graduating from College of Staten Island with a BA in Poli Sci, he has interned in the offices of then City Council Speaker Christine Quinn,  and then Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz. During 2012, he went out and worked in the Ohio OFA (Organizing for Action) office helping re-elect Obama to a second term and he was a campaign aid (LGBT Liaison) to Mel Wymore in his run for the New York City Council. Bryan is also a long-time board member of the Stonewall Democrats of New York City. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy Bryan worked with FEMA doing Community Relations work.
In June of 2014 Bryan sued NYC for discrimination after he was ordered to use the wrong public pool locker room.
Says Bryan,




"the bulk of my work is in the LGBT community whether it be advocating for Marriage Equality across the country, calling out the need those who talk ill to me or any of my transgender brothers and sisters as well as my continued work for Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act (GENDA) in New York State or when it comes to people learning about bisexuality and not thinking those horrible myths are anything but that.”




When trouble came Bryan and his friends were there standing strong representing the the entire LGBT Community.  So while you are cheering the symbolism please also remember the actual person. Says Bryan,




"I wanted to ask you my brothers and sisters to help me in my journey. Top surgery is my next step toward the place I want to be.  Anything you can do to help me would be most appreciated and if you could share this with others that would be amazing as well.”




So what do you says people? He was there for us. Can you be there for him? Please click the link and Help Fund Top Surgery for Bryan.   Thanks

September 2014 (Update)We’re almost there. Less than $1K!! Can you help?
Says Bryan, "Everyday I become more of the man I see myself too be … We have a short period of time but I am super excited too give me my dream. I need just a little more help and we are there”.

Hundreds of people gather in a vigil to honour and remember Tina Fontaine and Faron Hall; both are first nations who were recently found deceased. Tina Fontaine was found in a bag in the river, murdered.

Media reports have come in saying that those marching have filled Portage and Main in Winnipeg.

We need to combat racism and prevent further violence and death to first nations people, but especially women. Canadians should not forget about this.

Mike Brown jury gets extension, charges for Ferguson officer may be delayed until January
A St. Louis judge has granted an extension to the grand jury that has been tasked with deciding whether to charge a Ferguson police officer in the fatal shooting of teenager Michael Brown. The jury now has until January 7 to decide on an indictment.
St. Louis County Judge Carolyn Whittington made the decision on Tuesday to extend the deadline, St. Louis County Director Paul Fox, reported CNN. The jury’s regular term was set to expire on Wednesday.
The grand jury is to decide whether to charge Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, a black teenager who was unarmed at the time of the shooting.

#ArrestDarrenWilson, #JusticeforMikeBrown

There is no way this is not them hoping the furor will die down. There is NO reason for a grand jury to need THIS much time. DO NOT FORGET. Keep up the noise.

There is no rule on how to write. Sometimes it comes easily and perfectly; sometimes it’s like drilling rock and then blasting it out with charges.

“You can’t complain when other people have it worse” is a lie that people in power tell because it sets people in bad circumstances up in a competition. It means when we share our stories, we are always quietly fighting for the prize of being the worst off, and getting a tiny scrap of sympathy.

That keeps us from getting together and asking, why are our circumstances so bad and how can we make them better? It means only one person gets to complain and that person does it alone. As opposed to people working in concert to change their lives, to give each other strength and advice and encouragement.

EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.

but why

Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.



The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.

*cries* it breaks my heart to think that its all gone… all of it.:(when I first heard about this amazing place, I actually cried. Like real gross sobbing tears streaming down my face. out of anger and frustration. It set us back SO FAR to have lost all that knowledge….
