So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to use their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.



There’s a documentary about this on Netflix called Pink Ribbons, Inc. if anyone’s interested.

Anonymous said: how is that homophobic? i have gay friends and support them all the way, but i don't believe in gay marriage.

your gay friends are all talking shit behind your back 100%

Yeah, you support them all the way.. We’ll most of the way.. We’ll some of the way.. Clearly not as far as marriage.. Cause marriage ain’t for gays.. Or something

You hear so many of these people say, “I have a lot of gay friends but don’t believe in same sex marriage”, but you never hear gay people say “I’ve lots of friends who think it should be illegal for me to marry the person I love”.

So, here’s a PSA for everyone who is against marriage equality, but thinks they have gay friends. You probably don’t. What you have are gay acquaintances who have learned to quietly put up with your bullshit because it’s the path of least resistance and they just don’t have the energy to “My Fair Lady” your ass into being a decent human being.

Dan Cleaves, pictured, frequents bars in the Fan and Shockoe Bottom (though supposedly he has been banned at most of the establishments in the Bottom) seeking out intoxicated women to rape. He has also stalked women, and targets transwomen especially. The provided number, 1-800-838-8238, will connect you to the Virginia Family Violence & Sexual Assault Hotline. 
If you recognize him at a bar, approach the bartender or manager. They can confirm his identity by looking at his ID, and may throw him out as a result of his reputation. 
I have corroborated this information with relevant sources. 

Boost

Dan Cleaves was arrested Wednesday in Henrico. He is awaiting extradition to Maryland where he will face seven counts of sexually assaulting women in an attempt to give them HIV. 
For now, it looks like we no longer need to worry about him. 

Cleaves is now out on bond, possibly in the Richmond area. As of two weeks ago, he was still preying on women. Share the information and be prepared to intervene if you see him at a bar- if you’re uncomfortable intervening yourself, ask the staff or, at this point, call the police.
