I will never not reblog this gif set whenever it comes across my dash.
This is heartbreaking footage. This Indigenous kid is being ripped from her mum, the kid pleading not be taken away and asking what she has done wrong. Kevin Rudd’s apology to the Stolen Generation means jack shit if Indigenous families are still being ripped apart in 2014.
As Pilger noted in his Guardian article earlier this year, our Aboriginal population makes up 2.5% of the overall population but makes up 33% of children removed from homes. As of June last year 14,000 Indigenous kids had been removed. We spent an enormous $80 million on surveillance of our Indigenous communities but only $275,000 on supporting the same Indigenous communities. Just last week SBS reported that police turned up in riot gear in the middle of the night to take some Indigenous kids away from their parents. They not only handcuffed the parents at gunpoint but allegedly the grandfather and aunt next door.
It might be less explicit but this is the stolen generation again. Just as insidious and just as racist.
this mother fucker is the voice of nemo
shit i think i want to fuck nemo
this little fucker goes to my college— I’ve met him. To make matter worse, he’s sweet and shy. And hates it when people whisper “fish are friends, not food” around him.
oh my god
SWEET MOTHER OF GOD
I honestly can’t believe this right now. I was complaining to my bf about some Kotex tampons I had used, going on a bit of a rant about how bad they were, and on a whim I decided to go to the website and leave a review so other people who might get them would know better.
I’ve never written a tampon review in my life (it’s not something I ever anticipated doing) so I had a little fun getting very passionate about my thoughts, and then went to submit…. Only to receive the words: ‘Your review text contains inappropriate language.’ I was confused at first, I mean I was pretty emphatic, but I didn’t cuss at all… and then I realized: I had typed the word ‘vagina.’
You can’t type the word ‘vagina’ on a TAMPON review because it’s considered inappropriate.
KOTEX, a company that makes OVER A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR primarily selling products to people with vaginas, thinks that someone typing the word “VAGINA” in a review of a product that goes IN THEIR VAGINA is being inappropriate and needs to be censored.
I retyped “v*gina” with an asterisk like it was a swear word, submitted and it went to preview mode with no problem. But I’m still kind of in shock… Honestly, what is wrong with Kotex that they think they need to protect tampon users from the word ‘vagina’?
If you didn’t think our society’s fear of the vagina was absurd, here you go. It’s cartoonish.
