youre not friends if you havent pooped at each others houses
but what if the friend is across the country or in another country?
Rev Sekou kneeled between protesters and police and prayed, then was thrown into a police vehicle with blood smears all inside of it.
Why do I keep seeing posts spreading information about the protests in Hong Kong that end in sooooooo US INTERVENTION
Fuck your whitehouse.gov petition. The worst thing that can happen is the US to come swooping in in a “humanitarian intervention”
"I already knew I was gonna be an artist, I just didn’t know what kind. I used to do musical theatre and dance and stuff when I was younger. One time I did this song and dance thing and everybody was like, ‘yay, yay, yay’. We were in the car driving back to our house and my dad goes, ‘we should all go out and get ice cream…’ and I was all happy because I made my dad proud. And then he goes, ‘…because anyone who can make such a fool of themselves, in front of so many people, deserves an ice cream.’"

your local punk scene is 90% a white boys club. if a female gets harassed at your house show and you push it to the side and take no action, you aren’t doing shit for your cause. you’re not being inclusive. you’re partaking in your shitty white boy privilege and turning your head so you don’t have to deal with it. i don’t care if anybodys ‘show house’ is all of a sudden getting recognition and you think you’re part of a great cause, you’re not. don’t let that shit slide. that’s not what it’s about. oh, joyce manor is a ‘pussy’ band now because they called out a stage diver when they clearly asked respectfully before their show for nobody to stage dive because of something they care about (safety)? but oh no, your white boy experience isn’t going to be fulfilled unless you get to hurt somebody! hear my cry! “girls should know what they’re getting themselves into standing at the front of a show.” suddenly the inclusiveness of this ‘community’ you care so much about has vanished because it’s all about YOU again. if you don’t respect the joyce manor thing, you’re an asshole - fight it all you want. you’re not opening your eyes to the real issue here. stop making everything about you. why can’t you be cool for once?? like, just once???
