The model featured in one of Burger King’s infamously suggestive ads for the BK Super Seven Incher has said the company used her image without her permission. In a statement, the woman said that she was publicly humiliated and calls for people to boycott.

Please see the motive behind bringing the National Guard to Ferguson. This isn’t an issue of the system malfunctioning. No. The system is working exactly as it was designed to work: To silence and kill.

Militarized cops are horrendous enough. That an actual military force is going to be descending on them now is horrifying.

"

I went there at a time when you could go. My parents wouldn’t have been able to afford to send me to university or art school. And I went at a time you got a grant to go there.

It may sound nightmarish to some people now, but the government paid for you to be educated, because they believed it was a civic responsibility. And I certainly would not be here, being Doctor Who, if they hadn’t done that.

So I find it alarming that we live in an age where it doesn’t work like that any more. That we don’t think as a society, it is worthwhile paying to help people be educated, and become the best they can be.

Also I don’t see enough white feminists giving credit to Nicki Minaj beyond the interview of her doing her eyeliner.  Did you guys forget that she recognized and IDed as cisgender, and recognized that vagina does not equal womanhood, when she called herself a “woman with vagina.”  And that asshole talk show host laughed and said “as opposed to a women without one?” and she gave him a the meanest look and said “yes.”

Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was arrested on Monday during unrest in Ferguson Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest “for failing to disperse.” 8 others were also arrested.
"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety," Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.” Epstein is currently an activist and a vocal supporter of the Free Gaza Movement.
