Never forget the foundation of Law and Order.

People really don’t know that America’s first police force was made to keep watch for runaway slaves and keep free ones in check. This has carried over into today and will never stop, unfortunately.

KRS One tried to tell us

The first police “organizations” were Rattle Watches. The first police officers were Runaway Slave Patrolman, which started in 1705.

Historical context is significant

Summer Glau rehearsing for Serenity

I really love that she fights like a dancer.

Because she is! Trained in ballet, and the fight choreographers used that in their designs, and Joss actually added Simon’s line, “She always did love to dance” because of it.

Man Burned To Death in Scalding Shower As Punishment By Prison Guards, Two Other Inmates Turn Up Dead Since April

Florida’s Department of Corrections is facing a third potential criminal probe in the wake of another inmate death at a state prison.

Darren Rainey spent the final moments of his 50-year life in unthinkable agony, his skin shriveling and peeling from his body as scalding hot water blasted him for over an hour, inside a locked prison shower stall from which there was no escape.

Rainey, who suffered from mental illness and was serving a two-year term in Dade Correctional Institution near Miami, Florida for cocaine possession, was just a month from the end of his sentence on June 23, 2012. But that was the day Rainey was thrown into the locked shower by correctional officer Roland Clarke at about 7:38 pm, according to a report by Dade Department of Corrections Inspector General Jeffrey Beasley.

Guards then turned on the water to maximum heat — a scalding temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.

The crime for which Rainey was boiled alive as punishment? Defecating on his cell floor and refusing to clean up the mess.

Two years after his death, the state has yet to compete the mentally ill inmate’s autopsy, no official cause of death has been released, and no one has been disciplined in connection with the horrific death of Darren Rainey.

The Florida Department of Corrections was investigating the death, but called off its investigation because without an autopsy it did not have enough information to proceed.

In April, eight corrections officers were suspended and one fired following the death at Charlotte Correctional of Matthew Walker, 45. Sources say a group of 10 prison employees handcuffed and beat Walker to death inside his cell.
On Wednesday, Damion Foster, 36, died following an altercation with corrections officers in the prison’s mental-health unit, a source close to the case told the Miami Herald. Details of his death has not been released yet.

"I was born a baby who was assigned male at birth. I did not identify or live my life as a boy. As soon as I had enough agency in my life to grow up, I became who I am. And this did not start at 18, when I went to Thailand to have surgery. It started when I was 6 years old and my parents saw me for who I was and allowed me to live my life. That’s a lot of nuance and it’s hard to communicate that in 30 seconds or even a 140 character tweet. That’s why I’m here right now. I want this to be a learning and teaching moment for all of us. Just as much as you were vilified, as you say, from my supporters… That’s actually my community, who are vilified every single day. And misunderstood. And driven to isolation. And told that who they are is incorrect and wrong and should be under investigation."

Women don’t get to exist. Women don’t get to say no.

this is why yall need to quit the nice guy act

watch how fast they gonna throw mentally ill people under the bus for this misogynistic fucker. 

Upon turning down men (often really politely or at the very least not openly aggressively) I’ve experienced:

  • Death threats
  • Homophobic slurs
  • Antisemetic slurs
  • Shoving
  • Punching
  • Groping
  • Rape threats
  • Rape
  • Rumors about my sexuality
  • Rumors about whether or not I have an STD
  • My phone number put on a sex work advertising board
  • A Bebo group about me being fat
  • A full McDonalds soda cup hurled at me
  • Rocks thrown at me
  • Insults about my appearance
  • Being followed home and getting to listen to an hour of a dude banging on my door
  • Threats against my cats
  • and much, much more.

This shit is never a fucking isolated incident, it is directly linked to the toxic masculinity that tells men that they are supreme and women and those they perceive as such are their property, while demeaning them for being sexually available at the same time.

Before anyone jumps in with a not all men let me just tell you, when I tell my male friends about this stuff, I hear “well maybe he was having a bad day” or “maybe you should just give him a chance” or “(x) is a nice guy, maybe you’re taking it the wrong way” or even outright accuse me of lying. When I told a mae friend about my ex husband raping me he put his hand down the front of my jeans and told me I was too sexy for him to control himself. When my male friends actually see this happen I get the same “you’re overreacting” shit. I will hear the doorman at my old bar mention how much he loves his daughters in one breath and call the women walking past in short skirts sluts in the next.

I am fucking DONE with this shit. No mercy anymore. Men, fuck your precious masculinity, fuck your feelings. Women are dying and I’m meant to pretend that every time this happens, it’s a lone gunman or the standard scapegoat of the mentally ill? Open your damn eyes and look at the pattern. Start paying attention every time one of your bros complains about the friendzone or says he’d fuck a “slut” but never date her. Start paying attention every time a female friend of yours looks uncomfortable around specific men. And maybe, just maybe, stop making it all about you every time shit like this happens and the women around you remember every time it could have been them.
