Money really means nothing to me. Do you think I’d treat my parents’ house this way if it did?

Women priests give $1,000 to shelter after Cincinnati archdiocese withdraws donation

catholicsforjusticeinthechurch:

"The Association of Roman Catholic Women Priests donated $1,000 to a Catholic Worker house that shelters homeless women after the Cincinnati archdiocese retracted its funding because a woman priest led a prayer service at the shelter…

'We spent the money in June with the promise that it would be reimbursed at the start of the new fiscal year July 1, and we submitted the receipt on July 5,' said Mary Ellen Mitchell, one of the founders of Lydia's House. 'We found out Wednesday, July 16, of this week that [the archdiocese] wouldn't do the reimbursement.'”

-In an act that proves that the hierarchy cares more about associating with women’s ordination rather than keeping their promise to help homeless women and children.

fuck the traditional catholic church. fuck em right to hell.

Today’s picture for invisible illness is a personal one. This is one of about 30 notes that my friend has received since using her handicapped placard. I’m going to say this to you, have you ever seen someone get out of a car parked in a handicapped space and said to yourself “they look too young or they don’t look disabled.” I’m going to go with yes you have, because we all have at one time. I can’t remember doing it, but before I understood the difficulties of invisible illness when I was younger I probably did. Let me ask you this though, when you had that thought was it because you knew with 100% certainty that they weren’t handicapped or did you assume that because of their age and/or not seeing a cane, walker or wheelchair? All I’m asking is that we stop and think when we someone need a mobility aid, park in a handicapped space or say they are disabled that we remember this “DISABILITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE OR APPEARNACE.” #spoonie #invisibleillness #disability #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #fibromyalgia #myofascialpainsyndrome

If nothing else, this post needs to be seen around the internet more. This harassment is not okay and no one should have to deal with it on top of having an invisible illness. This is just another form of anonymous bullying to add to the internet bullying these TROLLS are capable of.

If you aren’t aware, cops love to destroy the phones of people who record them. 

So next time you’re in a situation where you are recording an officer and fear for the safety of your video evidence, try using the Bambuser app.

It uploads your video online to your Bambuser account while you record it. You can also stream the video live. This way your videos are saved online, safe from the hands of the uniformed pigs.

Also I don’t see enough white feminists giving credit to Nicki Minaj beyond the interview of her doing her eyeliner.  Did you guys forget that she recognized and IDed as cisgender, and recognized that vagina does not equal womanhood, when she called herself a “woman with vagina.”  And that asshole talk show host laughed and said “as opposed to a women without one?” and she gave him a the meanest look and said “yes.” We need to gif that.

Gaza twitter is reporting heavy shelling by Israel. It’s around 4:00 AM over there right now. Translation of the above:

They’re calling us to tell us to immediately evacuate al Shuja’iya (a neighborhood in Gaza City). How we’re supposed to evacuate at this time of night while the shells are falling in eastern and western Gaza, I don’t know! Please have mercy on us, oh God.
