Infernal Season

Political, social and other random stuff, plus occasional ramblings and rantings, and re-blogged items of interest.

I'm in the UK, and there is much to rant about here, let alone the general state of the planet. Topics will not just be UK-centric though!

who cares lmfao!!!!

What did they tell him!!! What can we tell him to make him cry harder

OKAY, HOLD THE FUCK UP.

THIS IS WHAT THE MEDIA DOES TO POSTS AND SUCH.

YOU PEOPLE ARE LAUGHING AT THIS MAN. WHY. BECAUSE HE WAS BROUGHT TO TEARS? I’M SURE IF THIS MAN WAS GAY, YOU’D BE ALL OVER IT.

YOU’RE NOT GETTING THE WHOLE STORY.

THIS MAN ASKED HIS FOLLOWERS ON SOCIAL MEDIA A QUESTION WHEN HE SAW THAT HE HAD QUITE A LOT OF LGBT FOLLOWERS. HE SAID, “IF YOU COULD CHOOSE WHETHER TO BE GAY OR STRAIGHT, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?”

AND THE RESPONSES MOVED HIM. THEY FUCKING MOVED HIM. THAT’S WHY HIS CRYING. I’M SORRY, BUT IF YOU PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SHIT ON HIM WITHOUT GETTING THE WHOLE STORY, I CAN’T TALK TO YOU.

HIS QUOTES ARE LITERALLY:

"Sorry, guys… It’s just… It’s sad."

"So, don’t take my word for any of this. Listen to them."

"And if you think being Gay is a choice, and you want to hide behind the Bible, show me the verse where God says being gay is a choice."

HERE IS THE ARTICLE

AND HERE IS THE VIDEO

I, AS A LESBIAN, AM FUCKING DISAPPOINTED IN YOU PEOPLE WHO ARE GIVING HIM SHIT.

IN THE VIDEO,

HE FUCKING SAYS “This video is about a kid who came out to his parents, and their… Their response was horrific.”

THIS MAN IS SOMEONE WHO CARES

AND THIS MAN IS SOMEONE YOU’RE HATING ON .

-

GET THE WHOLE FUCKING STORY BEFORE YOU DECIDE WHO YOU INSULT. AND, MOST OF ALL, JUST KEEP YOUR SHIT TO YOURSELF UNLESS YOU’RE 100% SURE YOU WANT TO SAY IT.

“Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind. ”

Kentucky State University President Raymond Burse announced Wednesday the school was dropping 654 students for unpaid tuition and room and board payments.

“The institution cannot afford to carry them,” Burse told The Washington Post. “If we had allowed them to stay here, it would have cost the university $6.8 million.”

The percentage of students with unpaid bills equaled about a quarter of the Frankfort, Ken., university’s enrollment. Since Wednesday, 307 students have paid their fees, Burse said.

“We’re getting to the point where we have to make tough decisions,” he said, but, “From the students that I’ve heard from, they understand their fellow students have to meet their obligations.”

Kentucky State University is one of eight public universities in the state, and the smallest, with a fall 2013 enrollment of 2,533 students.

Ferguson -2014

I blinked one day and when I opened my eyes, it was normal to have an American army battling Americans on American streets. No one even calls it a war. But it is.

Don’t forget this crazy shit actually happened.

Don’t forget this shit is STILL happening
