"Divine move. Divine move? You think you have any moves at all? You can kill the Oni but me? Me? I’m a thousand years old, you can’t kill me.”
Well, in theory, a blast of human passion could shock the mainframe into a cold start.
Hey I’m not suggesting that with all the increased racialized violence against Jews and Roma worldwide that it would be super important to feature two immensely well known and popular Roma Jewish superheroes in a major international blockbuster film franchise, but…
that’s precisely what I’m suggesting.
Nightwing: The Series Teaser (x)
Sebastian Stan in The Covenant.
Aderonke’s family was killed and she was arrested, tortured, and sentenced to death in Nigeria – because she’s a lesbian. She fled to safety in the UK.
Now, they’re trying to send her back into danger. Aderonke, like dozens of other LGBT asylum-seekers, is stuck in a process that the UK government has already admitted to humiliating and abusing them. It doesn’t work or protect anyone.
But, if thousands of us speak out right now, we could get the Home Office to take the next step and halt the deportations. Will you sign the petition to Home Office Secretary Theresa May now?
Please sign the petition to stop her deportation! 70,792 people have already signed this petition. We’re almost at the goal of 75,000 signatures.
(ETA: Seems you can only sign from the UK; definitely share if you have followers there!)
Interview with Aderonke Apata for those who are interested
Aaaand the link seems to be the thanks message for those who’ve already signed.
”..Who the hell is Natasha?”
I became so engrossed in the idea of Natasha being the Winter Soldier I COULDN’T HELP IT
Imagine Bucky being really self-conscious about his arm until one day a little boy with an artificial leg runs up to him saying that they match.
On average, you have a 1 in 18,989 chance of being murdered
A trans person has a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered
The average life span of a cis person is about 75-90
The average life expectancy of a trans person is 23-30 years old
75% of people killed in anti LGBT hate crimes are poc
Think about this the next time you go crying over “cisphobia” and “reverse racism”
As much as I want to spread information on crimes against trans people, you need to include sources in your post. You need to fact check these figures. Spreading misinformation only feeds transphobes and cissexists.
I am not arguing against your main issue. It is indisputable that trans people suffer from appalling levels of violence, abuse and murder. According to this study, in one month in 2013, transgender individuals were murdered at a rate 50% higher than that of lesbian or gay individuals. Another report indicates that transgender individuals are 28% more likely to experience physical violence than cisgendered people (also indicates much higher levels of violence towards LGBTQ people of colour as your original post said)
According to this survey of trans people, 41% had attempted suicide. They also face higher risk of HIV, and addiction to drugs or alcohol.
However, the ‘1 in 12 chance of being murdered’ statistic does not appear to have a traceable source. Even though it is believed that hate crimes against transgender people go under-reported, even with more accurate projected figures the statistics in don’t match up to a 1 in 12 figure. This person did a lot more work than me trying to discern the source of this much used statistic, to no avail.
It is likewise difficult to find an actual study or real source for the average life expectancy of a trans person. In the UK the average age [heavy tw for graphic surgical imagery] for MtF feminizing genitoplasty is 41.
Obviously, a huge part of the problem with this continued parroting of the same inaccurate statistics is a complete lack of resources or proper research into these issues. However, the ones we do have for certain are scary enough.
