Call me Becca. 21. Left-winger, atheistic, bi/demisexual dork who's unlikely to let your bullshit slide. Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Torchwood, The Hunger Games, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Teen Titans, some comics, politics, and feminism abound.
Yes, I'm bisexual and asexual simultaneously, and here's how that makes perfect sense. Please stop asking.

Because sometimes things that aren’t specifically adorable will also cheer me up in an emotional emergency. So there you go. XKit’s replacing the tag now. I’ll link it in my description after.

The Shot Glass Heard Around The World
In 1969, the Stonewall riots — precipitated when the NYPD burst into the famed gay bar and started being their usually abusive selves — defined the modern gay movement.
Among the first to physically resist the police was Marsha P. Johnson, the now infamous transgender rights activist who co-founded S.T.A.R. (Street Transgender Action Revolutionaries) with Sylvia Rivera in the ’70s.
At 1:20 in the morning on Saturday, June 28, 1969, four plainclothes police officers entered Stonewall Inn and announced “Police! We’re taking the place!"
Officers forced the customers to form into two lines divided by perceived gender and show them their genitals to confirm if it matched the gender on their identification card.
At some point during the raid, Marsha Johnson proclaimed, ‘I got my civil rights!' and then threw a shot glass into a mirror, adding on to the tension and creating an atmosphere of resistance. Some witnesses and historians believe her action is what instigated the riot.
Patrons began to refuse to produce their I.D. and police decided to arrest everyone still at the bar. Those who were not arrested gathered outside the bar and quickly drew a crowd of over 1,000 queers. As rumors spread through the crowd that those inside were being beaten by cops, they began throwing pennies, beer bottles and other items at police.
A drag queen who was shoved by an officer in front of the crowd responded by hitting him on the head with her purse as the crowd began to boo.
Soon after, an unidentified lesbian was hit on the head with a billy club after complaining that her handcuffs were too tight. She faced the bystanders and shouted, “Why don’t you guys do something?”
Police threw her into the back of a patrol wagons, at that point the crowd became a mob and collectively resisted the police.
Along with Sylvia Rivera, the two transgender revolutionaries created S.T.A.R. and STAR House in which they housed, fed and clothed homeless drag queens and trans* youth by hustling in the streets of NYC so that their children didn’t have to.
Marsha P. Johnson is often credited for inciting the Stonewall Riots, yet she receives close to no recognition by mainstream Gay Organizations and the queer community. I have no doubt that the erasure of Marsha’s participation in the riots and the Gay Liberation Movement is due to her being a black, transgender radical. Had she’d been a white gay cis-male, her name would be permanently embedded in every queer’s mind.
I know Marsha as a courageous queer revolutionary, a queen of Queens, a Stonewall Veteran, a dedicated activist, a mother of S.T.A.R. and a personal idol. She deserves more than anyone I know, to be recognized by the queer community.
In July 6, 1992, Johnson’s body was found floating in the Hudson River off the West Village Piers shortly after the 1992 Pride March. Friends of Johnson claims she was harassed near the spot where her body was found. The police disregarded this and ruled her death a suicide without any evidence. However, in November 2012, the NYPD re-opened the case.

white liberal queers shit themselves over Stonewall yet continue to ignore, attack, exclude, belittle, and engage in violence against trans* and queer POC, without which there would be no fucking Stonewall. Know your roots, queer is community.
Excerpt from article:
As the 2014 midterm elections approach, politicians are creating election platforms with an eye to policies which might help sway voters to choose their name in the ballot box.
Maine Governor Paul LePage (R) has chosen an interesting issue to make part of his legislative platform as he heads into the election: he wants to erode child labor laws and make it easier for school-age kids to get to work, and at significantly reduced wages.
Governor LePage is a long-time and staunch supporter of getting children into the workplace; as he told one town hall meeting in 2011, ”I went to work at 11 years old. I became governor. It’s not a big deal. Work doesn’t hurt anybody.”
LePage’s administration has made repeated attempts to loosen regulations around child labor and make it easier (and cheaper) for businesses to hire children; although the latest initiatives do not go so far as to embrace Governor LePage’s stated goal of reducing the working age to 12, Democrats and labor advocates are concerned that the administration’s proposals would undo decades, if not centuries, of child labor legislation in the State of Maine.
