It always gets me when MRAs bring up the draft as an example of discrimination against men. Yes, it’s true that no woman in America has ever been subject to conscription in times of war; however, being that the most recent draft was in 1973, most likely neither have you. If you get to drag up stuff that happened before you were born, so does everybody else - and I’m pretty sure the ladies are going to win that particular game of misery poker.
A protest was held in New York City on Monday against incoming Mayor Bill de Blasio’s appointment of William Bratton as the next police commissioner.
Bratton returns to the job after leading the New York City Police Department in the mid-1990s, embracing a controversial strategy of cracking down on low-level offenses.
De Blasio campaigned on a promise to curb the NYPD’s controversial stop-and-frisk policy, but Bratton actually expanded the program while heading the Los Angeles police.
See video of the protest, and a random convo w/ Lewis Black about Bratton, here
What the actual fuck, there go what little hope I had for de Blasio.
Q:I only signed up for this so I could tell you how poignant your blog on this was - it was very good. Thank you for writing
Thank you! Welcome to Tumblr, also. I hope you’ll stick around. It’s a lovely community. Hearing this really means a lot to me. Lots of love and hugs!
Reminder for Colorado
We are about to experience the first big snow and serious cold snap of the year. Temperatures in Denver will be down to -12. If you’re fortunate to have a home and belongings in that home, you probably have at least one winter coat, pair of boots, or blanket still in usable condition that you can part with. Please take time today to donate those extras to an organization like Urban Peak or your nearest Boys and Girls Club. Snow will begin tonight. By tomorrow, any homeless individuals without coats will already have spent a very cold night outdoors if they were unable to reach a shelter.
