We need your help!
A Place Called Home is an upcoming feature film inspired by the stories of homeless LGBTQ youth. But we need YOUR help to make the film a reality and it’ll only take a minute of your time:
- Visit our Thunderclap page and pledge your support with one (or more) of your social media accounts: Tumblr, Facebook, or Twitter. We need to reach our goal of 100 supporters in 5 days or our message won’t be sent out. Your pledge costs you nothing - all it does is allow Thunderclap to post a message with your social media account one time on August 25th - a message linking to our GoFundMe page with the above important message about homeless LGBTQ youth.
- Reblog this post! (Or feel free to signal boost it another way!)
THAT’S IT. It’ll take you hardly a minute and be such a huge help to us in order to meet our Thunderclap goal, which in turn will make it all the more likely we’ll be able to get funding for our film - a film that will help shine a bright spotlight on the plight of the over 600,000 homeless LGBTQ youth in America today.
Thank you so much for your help!

Britain’s first black marchioness
This is: Emma McQuiston
And as that says, she’s this first black marchioness Britain has ever had.
But she’s not the only black royal
but THIS IS A BIG DEAL.
plus she’s getting snubbed like big time. The groom’s father didn’t even come. And she said things like:
“she has been snubbed by the British elite because of her ethnicity and background”
SO REBLOG IT, CAUSE SHE’S GORGEOUS AND EVERYONE SHOULD LOVE HER.
- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson
No, no and no. REBLOG this please, this shouldn’t be allowed and we need to spread the word to everybody about this injustice!

"But womenz are so oppressed! "
You realize that he probably instigated her? People dont just do these things. You just like to hear the one side of the story that you want to.
And if a woman instigated a man who then glasses her in the face? You’d be singing a different song then.
You’re just throwing in probably. This is exactly what I saw people do over Michael Brown being murdered. They just go “Oh, he must’ve attacked the cop.” or “Oh, the cop must’ve been trying to defend himself!” Even though there was seriously nothing suggesting that, and we later had mountains of evidence showing it was cold blooded murder.
No, I don’t know the reason she did that. Maybe he did attack her, maybe he didn’t. I’m not going to just assume anything though. Stop looking at this as a way to shoot people down, and look at it through facts.
Edit: Oh shit, didn’t see that first comment. Also, fuck you anti-feminist-rayquaza. This doesn’t eliminate the fact that women are more oppressed than men in every way.
This woman also had 17 previous convictions of assault. That means this is the 18th time she has physically assaulted someone. The majority of human beings on this planet, regardless of gender identity, will likely go through their entire lives without even accumulating ONE.
Funny how the people who claim to be against “victim-blaming” are the first ones to do it to anyone that doesn’t fit their narrow criteria of what it means to be a victim. They’re also quick to hide behind a little of that “patriarchy” when it’s convenient for them to do so. If it works in their favor, they’re all for those outdated gender roles that they claim to be trying so hard to disassemble. If today’s excuse for “feminism” was truly about gender equality, then they would suck it up, and admit that there’s more to that term than just money and “privilege” (not even getting into the fact that women are already a lot more privileged in this country than they’d care to admit). There’s also the matter of accepting the same level of punishment for committing the same crimes. Women in general have gotten away with some pretty goddamn horrifying shit simply because of their gender. People will fall all over themselves trying to excuse when a woman commits assault or cold-blooded murder, because we’re still stuck in this obsolete notion that women aren’t as capable of wrongdoing as men. More women commit child abuse than men (and don’t give me any of that shit about “But women are usually the ones taking care of the kids!”, because THAT ISN’T AN EXCUSE, NOR JUSTIFICATION, FOR HARMING OR KILLING THEM). Children are more likely to be killed by their mothers than their fathers, and when it comes to the murder of spouses, 41% of the killers are women.
Women are not perfect angels incapable of perpetrating evil, and the sooner that “feminists” finally admit this, the closer we’ll be to ACTUAL gender equality, and the closer we’ll be to seeing all human beings as equals, no matter HOW they identify.

I am SO goddamned tired of this shit.
damn, they won’t let up. we can’t run and we can’t surrender. what do they expect us to do? they killed this woman over what some merchandise? you let out on some garments what twisted universe do you gotta come from when a overtime punching rent-a-cop even bothers to chase and then pull a gun? smh rip because there is nothing but war on this side of the final curtain.
I cannot.. I can’t….y’all hear about this?!?!?
not at all. what the fuck
sooo. at this point I really feel as though witness protection, therapy, meals, etc should be free for black people.
We are facing massive losses due to war crimes.
We are living with PTSD and having to hear about our people dying on a daily basis for being black and existing.
We are expected to perform our jobs and go to school and to contribute to society and be functional.
I’m really on the verge of a nervous break down.
How many more black people have to die before something is done to end the genocide?
wow and she was dead ass
Just so you guys know this is a thing started on 4chan where they would take this and just add really offensive horrible things to it (you can even see the deleted characters above the “Like” button) and for some reason this edit, as well as an edit where “she” was condoning rape, became popular. Normally I wouldn’t care but I’m pretty sure she’s like 14 and is getting bullied terribly
I creeped her facebook and here’s her newer posts on the subject:
Just so you all know!
Boost this to the moon. Clear this woman’s name.
This should worry you. This fight is far from over, we can’t start strong and simply not finish
Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run. Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph. The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp.
On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture. I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive. But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency. Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up.
Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case. *Edit* This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police. Please advise, it is highly disturbing.
And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.
On February 21st, 2013, Ryo Oyamada was struck and killed by a police cruiser while crossing the street. NYPD claimed that the cruiser’s lights and sirens were on before the collision, but multiple eyewitnesses stated otherwise, that the lights and sirens were only turned on afterwards, and that the cruiser was speeding in excess of 70 mph down a residential street. None of these eyewitnesses were interviewed for the police report.
