prokopetz:transgenderer:ursaeinsilviscacant:ozsploitation:Why is having to show your ID to vote a huge controversial thing in the United States? It’s how you get to vote in Australia (I think? I wasn’t here for the election I voted via postal ballot) you show your ID, they find your address and they mark you off. Why is that such a big deal? I don’t understand. Can someone please explain it to me without being ‘MUH FREEDOM’ ‘MUH PRIVACY’ ect ect can you give me a real reason?

Mixing at the end of ‘The Daily Show’ with Franchesca Ramsey: “you cannot force people to have conversations, they are not ready for.”

profeminist:Salon: What I’ve found remarkable about Larry Wilmore, just as a viewer – and I don’t mean just with “The Nightly Show,” I’m also referring his work on “Black-ish” and especially with Issa Rae – is that I have not seen a producer promote women of color as prominently as he has.

Where he guys ask women then? At the bar of the rhe? Not because the bar everypne just wants to have drunk sex. In the street? No it’s sexist. Online? Not because online on websites datign everyone has incredibly high standards.

The fact that there are still so many delusional fucknuggets in my inbox about this is astounding. Look, the entire point about my post was that you need to understand that women are not available to you just because they exist. They are at work, they are in an industry that basically requires them to be nice to you. To assume that they are into you because they’re are fulfilling their job description does a disservice to them and to you. More so to them.
