THIS is the shit that bothers me with tumblr
This stuff makes me anxious.
This isn’t just a Tumblr phenom. It’s something that happens on other sites and IRL too. As much of a socially aware person as I am, this post totally has a point.
How to take it so far that you become part of the very problem you think you’re fighting, explained in pictures.
Hashtivism has changed how I see and live in the world. And I know I’m not the only one. If you ask me, the only lazy or ineffective thing about online activism is the blanket criticism of it. Don’t like what you see on your feed? Do something about it. Reading what others have to say, sharing your observations when relevant, and starting conversations with your friends–whether online or offline–is one way to begin. Is that “philanthropy”? Is that “activism”? Is that “organizing”? Does it really matter?! It’s dialogue. A place where change is born.
Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.
As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.
The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.
‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.
But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole.
‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.
Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.
