Breaking via ABC News: UN Human Rights Council votes to open inquiry into alleged war crimes in Gaza; U.S. is the ONLY “no” vote.
That’s because the U.S. is a direct accomplice to every war crime that Israel commits.

wait but it passed, right? they didn’t need it to be unanimous, did they?

Women are being forced to travel huge distances for abortion care, while anti-choice crisis pregnancy centers are rapidly taking their place.

Crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) pose as legitimate reproductive health centers. They have a track record of outright lying to women and work to dissuade people from exercising the right to choose. They often advertise as if they provide abortion services, drawing people in by promising free reproductive health services, including free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and options counseling.

Chinese women in solidarity!

fucknofetishization:

chinesewomenunited:

I just started this blog as a safe space for Chinese women to share their experiences, connect with one another, vent and be heard and of course submit photos of themselves! 

I am sick of seeing Chinese women being fetishized on Tumblr and I’ve also noticed that Chinese women are often glossed over in discussions of feminism and racism. This blog is an attempt to fill in this gap and give Chinese women a place online.

You are welcome to follow this blog if you are not a Chinese woman. However, you are not welcome if you are here because you have a fetish for us. You will be blocked and reported if you are a fetish blog. 

Cheers! And I look forward to connecting with all you beautiful people. 

(sorry about reposting this; I’m just trying to get it out to people who weren’t online later. FYI, this is mod c and I just created this blog!)

I use a couple of apps which have accessibility info for getting around London and they’re invaluable. This sounds like a really good app for similar in NYC.
