Blackface in 2013 is UNACCEPTABLE! No more Shirley Q. Liquor!
TW: Black face, racism
Immediate action needed!
Shirley P Liquor, a black face drag queen, is coming to Portland, Oregon.
The Eagle bar, a local gay bar, is bringing Chuck Knipp who is better known as Shirley P. Liquor. Chuck Knipp has openly deflected criticism and has gone as far as stating that he considers himself a facet in creating positive conversations around race and that is not denigrating black women but celebrating them.
Chuck Knipp is vile and his drag person is directly tied to a history of black face, minstrels shows, and a long American history of anti-black racism.
Folks of color, queer folks of color, white queers, and white folks are all coming together to demand that Eagle bar no longer bring Chuck Knipp to Portland. Many people across the country have come together to protest this drag act.
Folks have called in but the owners are refusing to cancel this show and community anecdotes have shown that the owners are racist, transphobic, desire controversy, and operate out of white male privilege.
This event is not an isolated instance and can not be de-contextualized from Portland politics and history. Recently there was this issue that prompted a long discussion around Portland racism but beyond that incident and this event there is a much larger context needed of Portland’s history of black politics and marginalization. It can not go unnoticed that both these incidents are taking place in a historically black neighborhood known as part of and near the “RedlIne district” that create exclusionary practices in regards to African Americans in Portland. These events are direct assault on people of color by white business gentrifying black neighborhoods. The irony is palatable.
Action is needed. Portland’s community of colors should not have to experience these daily aggression (both micro and macro) that clearly show no regard for folks of color in Portland.
Please call The Eagle directly at (503) 283-9734 or email The Eagle at email@example.com and ask them to cancel this event.
Please spread far and wide and do not hesitate to call, comment, or email.
Portland folks of color, queers of color, need our solidarity and our action.
Please signal boost.
this doesn’t have many notes, so i feel like if i call they might actually answer. not sure i can handle such direct racism at the moment, looking at this blackface is plenty. i’m going to call later though, when i’m feeling tougher. jfc.
Keirah Rose is a friend of mine personally. She recently came out and told all of us that a few years back she was at an anime convention and got herself into a situation where she needed medical help.
Once they found out she was a trans-woman the medical staff proceeded to abuse her. They tore off her clothes and tore her hair out of her head. They laughed and said horrible things about her body. While they thought she was unconscious they tore her urinary tract with a catheter, leaving her genitals heavily mutilated and fractured.
They abandoned her to walk for 4 miles barefooted and with minimal (paper) clothing. She was bleeding both externally and internally and had no bladder control.
She is now in frequent pain and was advised by her medical doctor to get treated ASAP by either getting SRS or genital reconstruction. She chose SRS which is going to cost her about 10,000 dollars not counting pain medicine, antibiotics, hotel stay, food, etc. She hopes to see Dr. Saran in Thailand.
She is kindly asking for signal boost of this story and for any donations anyone can spare.

But, I feel there is something many are not realising, and it is important to know this. Megaupload has started to use a special encryption, meaning they cannot see what you are uploading and allowing others to download. This means that they cannot be held accountable for any illegal activity that goes on on the site. Which means if the FBI focus on Megaupload, the consequences will fall on you. Megaupload has made itself prosecutable, because under their terms and conditions, all liability now goes to the users. Which means if the FBI chooses to go in search of those uploading illegal content, or downloading illegal content, they cannot prosecute the site or owners. There is only one person they can prosecute, and that is the user. And I feel that users, tumblr especially, will not realise that, and continue on using it as they did. So if you use it as you did, you now run a much higher risk of being caught. And I thought you should know that. Be careful.

given the events of the past few days, i think it’s safe to say that the supernatural fandom has fucked up. again. it’s not your fault or mine (well, probably some of you reading this), but the fact is now it’s done, and there’s nothing we can do about it
or is there?
i don’t know about you, but i am so fucking tired of our positive voices toward jensen and danneel, jared and genevieve, and misha and vicki being drowned out by the rabid inhabitants of the viscera of the fandom who feel the need to badger and harass them.
it’s not like this is the first time something like this has happened either. it’s a well known fact that danneel gets hate tweets on an almost daily basis, and she genuinely feels like the fandom hates her. every other month there seems to be somebody genuinely trying to start an “i hate misha” cult here on tumblr. jensen probably doesn’t even have a twitter because the shit storm would be ASTRONOMICAL. and does anyone remember the jared’s airport stalker who decided to bitch and libel? yeah.
so my idea is to buy three scrapbooks, assign one to each couple, open a PO box, and get the spnfamily to send nice handwritten notes about them. it can be a note or a letter or a poem or fanart, i don’t care, as long as it shows your appreciation for the happy couple! you can write for whomever you wish, all i ask is that you include them both in the note.
i’ll crop these notes and paste them in the scrapbook. with as many kickass people in this fandom as there are, we should be able to fill up three scrapbooks full of smiles with no sweat, and then i’ll either mail them to vancouver or hand them to j2m at a con, but i promise you they will receive them.
if this project gets enough support, i will run down to the post office and open that PO box ASAP and we can get this thing rolling!
you DO NOT have to follow me to show support. all i ask is that you reblog this, spread the word, and track the tag “project: family don’t end with blood” for possible updates
c’mon guys. it’s time we shouted louder than those assholes who feel like they can say whatever they want to these people who work so hard to give us so much. and instead of twitter spam and tag wars, this is something they won’t be able to touch, won’t be able to ruin for us and for our six heroes
Under current North Carolina law, the definition of “rape” is extremely narrow. It only includes those who engage in “vaginal intercourse” with another person by force and against the will of the other person and “employs or displays a dangerous or deadly weapon”.
This outdated definition fails to cover many types of sexual violence that should fall under the category of “rape”. It excludes rapes involving forced anal sex and/or oral sex, vaginal or anal fisting, rape with an object (even if serious injuries result), rapes of men and transgender people and other injurious and degrading sexual assaults.
As well, because the definition requires a deadly weapon, this excludes those who were intimidated or coerced in to engaging in sexual activity and those who were otherwise unable to give consent, such as by being unconscious or under the influence of alcohol.
In January 2012, Attorney General Eric Holder and the Federal Bureau of Investigation expanded the definition of rape to “the penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim”.
We ask the North Carolina General Assembly to follow in their footsteps and expand the legal definition of “rape”.

i live in connecticut, and westboro is planning to come to our state to picket these kids’ funerals because they believe god is punishing connecticut for legalizing gay marriage, and that’s why these kids died.
it’s fucking sickening.
please reblog this and sign the petition on whitehouse.gov to legally recognize WBC as a hate group by clicking here. i normally don’t do things like this but i feel it’s my duty as a citizen of this state and a morally sound person to spread the word about this and stop these people.
