artwritten: “To be white, or straight, or male, or middle class is to be simultaneously ubiquitious and invisible. You’re everywhere you look, you’re the standard against which everyone else is measured. You’re like water, like air. People will tell you they went to see a “woman doctor” or…

Will the U.S. dollar officially collapse on July 1, 2014 and H.R. 2847 will go into effect? Then America will be living under the imposition of martial law by the federal government? WHAT'S HAPPENING???

HR 2847 puts regulations on offshore banking tax loopholes. People who have lots of money believe that, because rich people and large companies NEED tax loopholes in order to feed their private planes…all of them will run screaming from America as soon as it’s enacted, thus destroying the entire American economy. 

Actually they don’t believe this, they just want everyone to think that closing down their tax shelters will destroy the economy so we stop doing it. 

The American economy does not depend on offshore tax shelters, we’re going to be fine.

The backlog of rape kits has put justice on hold for a lot of people. Back in 2009, more than 11,000 untested kits were found in a Detroit Police Department storage facility. Some were more than 25 years old.

Mariska Hargitay speaks on some of the issues surrounding the rape kit backlog in Detroit, Michigan. #endthebacklog (x)

It costs between $1,000 – $1,500 to test every single rape kit. There are over 10,000 kits left in Detroit’s rape kit backlog. Your donation can go directly to testing them. Donate to the Detroit Crime Commission’s backlog initiative by clicking here.

I am pretty explicitly anti-police in every respect. But I support Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy and her push to catalogue the egregious backlog of unprocessed rape kits in Detroit. 

Her work has already identified countless serial rapists in southeast Michigan, and will continue to identify these rapist pieces of shit as she moves forward.

Who cares if this process leads to conviction or not. Just give us the list. We can take care of the rest.

"After Detroit tested the first 10% of its backlogged kits, authorities were able to link cases to 46 serial rapists." (x)

Just think about it: 46 serial rapists. And the evidence against them was out there, all the time, in those backlogged kits. And that’s just 10% of them
