It is difficult to be sat on all day, every day, by some other creature, without forming an opinion on them.
On the other hand, it is perfectly possible to sit all day, every day, on top of another creature and not have the slightest thought about them whatsoever."
this quote was literally in my sociology book(via marinashutup)
Local drag performer Ade, who was attacked on 13th and Cherry in the wee hours of Saturday morning after one of her assailants yelled “No! That’s a dude!”
I’ve heard people talk about the “increasing crime problem” in Capitol Hill, but they don’t always mention hate crimes while expressing their concern. Hate crimes, obviously, are a gigantic cause for concern; in the past year, at least three other attacks targeting queer folks have hit the news — and those are just reported ones. And this is in Capitol fucking Hill.
We’re grateful for an absence of sickening, classist op-eds about Downtown crime over the past few months, but hey, maybe those hand-wringers can start hand-wringing about targeted attacks on queer people in their own backyard? Maybe KIRO can do a feature story!(via seattlish)
Yup, what seattlish says right here. I want my neighborhood to be safe for everyone.
