danforth: http://techcrunch.com/2012/04/30/rumor-hulu-will-soon-require-viewers-to-have-a-cable-subscription/ Cable subscribers, under this model, would get access to a show on Hulu the next day, while non-subscribers would have to wait at least 30 days.

other-stuff: stfuconservatives: zacchaeus: By trying to help make one group of people feel accepted, you are systematically repressing everyone else who you feel has too many rights as it is. I’m not ashamed of who I am or what I stand for, so I will be damned if I let you take rights away from me. That’s why I’m a Republican. Yup, that’s our long-term goal. No more straights. But for...
ladyatheist: split-the-coast: When you discuss the wage gap, here are a few things to keep in mind: Only white women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar. Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar. Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar. Intersectionality matters. Also, please keep in mind that the “man’s dollar” is the white man’s dollar. Both Black and Latino men make less than...

transcouchnetwork: Hi! I just started a tumblr, the Transgender Couchsurfing Network. After seeing dozens of posts come across my dash about displaced or homeless trans people needing places to crash, I decided that there had to be a way to organize these posts somehow, and to put those in need in contact with those willing to lend a hand. If you’re trans and need a place to stay, or if you...

pieceinthepuzzlehumanity: theamericanbear: From March 5th. I’ll bet you didn’t hear about it either. Early last month, Tausug villagers on the Southern Philippine island of Jolo heard a buzzing sound not heard before. It is a sound familiar to the people of Waziristan who live along Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan, where the United States fights the Taliban. It was the dreaded drone,...

Why feminism hasn't taken on disability issues yet
fromonesurvivortoanother: 1. Mainstream feminism hasn’t even accepted race as a factor for analysis yet. We are still having race problems; the Slutwalk sign fiasco is notable. Mainstream feminists like Naomi Wolf and Jessica Valenti getting away with barely mentioning intersectionality (or non-white authors) in their work is another. Or, you can just open up the pages of Ms. Magazine and see...

What’s going on here? Right-wing sabotage of USPS financing, that’s what. In 2006, the Bush White House and Congress whacked the post office with the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act—an incredible piece of ugliness requiring the agency to PRE-PAY the health care benefits not only of current employees, but also of all employees who’ll retire during the next 75 years. Yes, that includes...
