Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris
Because why go outside (gasp!) and get involved when you can just like and reblog posts from the comfort of your home.
Because sometimes you’re young, and can’t leave your area, or parents won’t let You get involved. so the only thing you can do is spread the message so someone who can help will see it.
"Aaaand made a comic to make people feel bad about themselves, when I’m not doing anything either. Gee that was good use of my time."
Thank you. Spreading awareness is not slacktivism, it’s real activism to genuinely show verbal support of protesters and it informed people in other states and led to more protests.
Note also how most of the activists/the only slacktivist in question are specifically shown to be female.
Cuz men never talk a big game online then act like babies IRL right? It’s just those pesky wimminz!
This comic is a misogynist load of shit, which should be your first clue that its message is similarly absolute tripe.
In addition, the whole basic concept of getting word out about boycotts/strikes/protests/etc. is completely ignored. How would that work if no one spent time online talking about this shit? Activism would be limited to local-only movements shared via word of mouth.
This whole comic could be summed up with
in case anyone’s wondering why you shouldn’t wear straight jackets for halloween:
- straight jackets are symbols of the oppression of the mentally ill, they are the embodiment of centuries of violent ableism
- when people were put into straight jackets they lost their autonomy and control over their own body which is a terrifying thing to experience and a loss of basic human rights
- as someone who has been physically and chemically restrained, when i see someone wearing a straight jacket for halloween it says to me that you think the abuses that sane people have perpetuated against me and people like me are a costume you can put on for one night and then take off and go home and never have to think about what it does to a person to be have their most basic rights taken away
- DO IT
Friends don’t let friends wear anything asylum-related 2k14
A police officer in Baton Rouge resigned Thursday after a local news channel revealed that he sent text messages in which he wished that fellow officers “would pull a Ferguson” on a “bunch of monkeys,” The Advocatereports.
Fifteen-year-veteran Michael Elsbury resigned on Thursday after text messages he sent to a female friend were brought to the attention of his superiors. In one message, Officer Elsbury — whose patrol included the area around the historically black Southern University — wrote that blacks are “nothing but a bunch of monkeys,” and that the “only reason they have this job is the nigger, nigger in them.” It is unclear what “job” he is referring to.
In another text, he wrote that “I wish someone would pull a Ferguson on them and take them out. I hate looking at those African monkeys at work…I enjoy arresting those thugs with their saggy pants.”
After WBRZ reported on the text messages, the female friend turned her phone over to police, who spent two days combing through it in order to authenticate the messages. At 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday night, the Baton Rouge Police Department had collected enough evidence to place Officer Elsbury on administrative leave.
On Thursday afternoon, he tendered his resignation.
Police Chief Carl Dabadie said that “it was gut-wrenching to believe that someone had that much hate in them, especially a police officer who is out there enforcing the law every day. It made me sick to my stomach.” Chief Dabadie said that he understands how an incident like this could “cast a bad light” on the entire department, but hopes the community can appreciate the alacrity with which the incident was handled.
“I believe this is an isolated incident that occurred between the officer and this girl,” he said. “I do not want this to become a direct reflection on our officers. I have 650 officers, and 649 of them work their butts off every day for the city of Baton Rouge.”
Some will still believe that cops like these are isolated cases.
I had a lot of time, some crayons, and some MLP stickers. Design is fun.
For the Bronies that sleep.
FALSE. Fathers who ask for sole custody are far more likely to get it. It’s just that they don’t ask, mostly women do. Men win custody over women even if they are ostensibly unfit. More and more, judges and parents rule in favor of 50/50 custody. In fact, in the past ten years, the men’s rights movement has been devastating to women seeking custody in court and women are awarded sole custody about half as many times as men.
So find a new fucking myth.
