“While American forces bomb away at Libya, the Obama administration is launching another global offensive: Operation International Tolerance,” a FRC report said. “As he looks on from South America, the President put troops on the ground today for a meeting of the U.N.’s Human Rights Council, where his diplomats plan to strong-arm other countries into embracing homosexuality.”
“In a major U-turn from the Bush years, the Obama administration is actually initiating an ‘anti-discrimination’ resolution to force acceptance of the world’s gays and lesbians.”
“Obviously, FRC believes that homosexuals and transgenders shouldn’t be subjected to violence,” the conservative group added. “No binding document of international law has ever recognized a universal ‘human right’ to engage in sex with a person of the same gender.”
“Our global neighbors have the freedom to believe that homosexuality is wrong—just as they have the freedom to legislate against any behavior they think is harmful to society,” FRC continued.” —
I has a rage.
At the same time, it is also true that the principal alternative to nuclear power is coal. And coal is an environmental catastrophe all its own. Coal changes our climate. Coal is dug from mines that collapse and kill miners. Coal ash emits more radioactivity than nuclear waste, reports Scientific American. Coal burning accounts for 92 percent of smog-creating nitrogen oxide in our air, 97 percent of the fine particulates we call soot, 100 percent of the toxic mercury.
One way or another, coal is estimated to shorten between 8,000 and 34,000 lives in America every year.
The hazards of coal are less spectacular than the hazards of nuclear, in just the same way that the hazards of driving are less spectacular than the hazards of flying. Our minds seem to be wired to fear rare but spectacular hazards much more than we fear more familiar but more lethal hazards. That tendency explains bad energy policy. It does not excuse it.” —
“Real women have curves” was a marketing slogan thought up to sell people overpriced, ill-fitting pants. It does NOT promote body positivity – it only perpetuates body policing by turning the tables on people who don’t fit into yet another arbitrary ideal.
The job is to BUST THE FUCKING PARADIGM APART, not shift it a little bit toward the fat side. The job is to remind people, bodies are not public property and your opinion about an individual’s body is only an opinion, not a valid judgment of their worth as a human being. The JOB is to destroy systemic oppression of nonconforming, rebellious bodies no matter what those bodies look like.” —Job Number One; Destroying the Paradigm, Not Shifting It (via therotund)
