internet-royalty:

Obviously body shaming of any kind is inappropriate and gross and you shouldn’t be bothering people to eat cheeseburgers or whatever BUT it is also gross as fuck that Johanna’s sharing a cartoon where there’s some horrible fat-shaming image of an obese woman saying these things. 

This cartoon is yet another example of people trying to pit skinny women against fat women when we should be joining up together and fighting against the society that tells us we are no more than our bodies.  This is what the oppressors do, they create issues that cause the oppressed to fight each other instead of bonding together to take down the people and society who are fucking them over.

Don’t fall into this trap!

How to Record Police Encounters Without Losing Your Video | Police State USA

Technology is a double-edged sword.  It has enabled the government to become more intrusive than ever with its online spying capabilities.  However, cheap and discreet recording devices make it much more feasible to hold cops on the street accountable.

Police State USA encourages holding government officials accountable but advises everyone to research the laws in their own states regarding secretly recording audio conversations (Read more: The Reporter’s Recording Guide).  Encounters with police officers in public generally do not fall under such restrictions, particularly after the recent court decision in Illinois.

Here, we intend to look at the technologies that facilitate that recording.

Streaming App for Cellphone

Ustream is a cell phone application that allows a user to begin recording video and audio — and simultaneously stream the data to an online account — at the click of a button.

If you are in a tense situation with the police, click the app button and the rest is done automatically.  While running, it doesn’t look like a streaming app.

The video files will then be available online when viewing the user’s Ustream account.

Pros:

  • Easy to use.
  • Preserves video even if cell phone is confiscated.
  • Does not give obvious clues that the app is streaming.
  • Reputable app with product support.
  • Video/audio quality correspond to user’s phone capabilities.

Cons:

  • Internet uploads depend on having a sufficient phone signal.
  • May not be compatible with certain phone operating systems.
  • Presence of a cell phone will always draw suspicion of recording.

Discreet Keychain Camera

This tiny recording device looks just like a vehicle remote-starter that might be found on your key chain. It’s an inconspicuous option for video and audio recording that is unlikely to be seized by police. To recover the video, the device must interface with a computer at a later point.  The video is stored on a removable memory card.  The price is unbeatable, and with a large micro-SD card it can record for 2.5 hours.

Even if an officer confiscates a a keychain from someone, it is unlikely to be determined to be a recording device and will more than likely have its evidence intact after the keychain is returned.

Pros:

  • Low price!
  • Tiny size.
  • Discreet.
  • Easy to use.
  • Always with you.
  • Unlikely to be confiscated.
  • Useful even if there is insufficient cell phone tower signal.

Cons:

  • Not easy to aim when the keys are in the vehicle ignition.
  • Lower quality video/audio.
  • If device is lost, evidence is lost.
  • Cheap import item;  Little/no product support.
  • Mixed product reviews.  “You get what you pay for.”

Discreet Pen Camera

Stick this “pen” in your pocket for discreet video/audio recording.  It’s another inconspicuous option for documenting interactions with public servants that is unlikely to be confiscated.  To recover the video, the device must interface with a computer at a later point.  The video is stored on a removable micro-SD memory card.

Similar to the keychain camera or other discreet recording devices, this item is unlikely to be confiscated.

Pros:

  • Low price!
  • Tiny size.
  • Discreet.
  • Easy to use.
  • Easy to keep with you.
  • Unlikely to be confiscated.
  • Useful even if there is insufficient cell phone tower signal.

Cons:

  • Lower quality video/audio.
  • If device is lost, evidence is lost.
  • Cheap import item;  Little/no product support.
  • Mixed product reviews.  “You get what you pay for.”

I got this message from ahimsa-veganism

Hello beautiful human. Once you get this, you must publicly say five things about yourself, then pass it on to up to 10 of your favorite followers.

So here’s 5 more things about myself :)
  1. A few years back I was in a bar and a girl walks up to me and says “do I know you?” and I said “uhm I don’t think so, you’ve probably seen me in my music video on MTV” and she said “YEAH I THOUGHT SO!”. She got happy and seemed sincere but I was only joking :P
  2. I sleep with a stuffed giraffe I named Eleven (Whovians get it)
  3. Going vegan was the best decision I’ve ever made
  4. I love to crochet and knit
  5. I love making gifts for people

yay, thanks :D
okay, five things…
1. I drink a lot of tea
2. I quit highly caffeinated drinks and nicotine recently
3. One time I woke up from my ex bf hitting me in my face and I asked why he did it and he thought I was dead!! Because I wasn’t breathing and I sleep with my eyes open.
4. The sleeping with eyes open thing is something both me and my brother share and at nap time in kindergarten the teachers got scared when they checked on us hehe (our mom was working as one and told us this when we got older)
5. Joanna is the number one victim of my spontaneous singing, dancing and story telling :)

The Stonewall Riots were started by trans PoC, and making a movie about it, directed by a cis white guy, and starring a cis white guy. is probably one of the biggest slaps in the face to the trans community to date. Transwomen of color started the riots, and were swept under the rug as drag queens by the cis gay community. Making the movie with white cis male actors is disgusting and transphobic as hell.
