So I’ve just learned about “foodkin” and um… Is this just like a very elaborate and widespread trolling endeavor? These people are trolling, right? Please tell me there was a big group troll sesh that I missed and that’s all this is. Seriously.

hello, although some things may be new to you, you simply must try your best to understand. i identify as a genderless kiwi and it certainly wasn’t an easy decision for me. seeing so many posts and messages like this really pile up and it’s starting to affect me deeply.

no, we’re not ‘trolling’ and foodkin aren’t jokes at all. at least, i’m not joking.

even though you can’t come to terms with some things, try your best to speak kindly with others and try to view things from their point of view. from a kiwi point of view.

Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.

Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (EDIT: i’ve discovered that the Brown family wishes for any and all photos of Michael lying in the streets to be removed. please respect this and do so)

There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident),  that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.

According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.

According to msnbc, the police refuse to interview Johnson at all, despite his amazing courage to come forward. They didn’t wanna hear it. They only listened to the cop’s account of it all and were vague with the media on what they thought happened. They’ve also refused to commit to a timeline in releasing autopsy results and other investigation information.

Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)

The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]

Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.

It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.

And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.

please reblog this version of this post. Michael Brown’s body was on display for long enough, and his family has asked not to circulate the image.


spotsconlon asked: "i don't know if these people are serious or not 'cause if they're not they've put a hell of a lot of work into it. also with otherkin people?? with their hate on cishets and / .. ... what i am just so confused"

I’m just… And people wonder why important social activism and equality movements aren’t taken seriously. It’s because of shit like this. I really hope they’re trolls. This is such a strange part of the internet I have stumbled into.

Koko the gorilla is a resident at the Gorilla Foundation in Woodside, CA and communicates understands spoken english and uses over 1,000 signs to share her feelings and thoughts on daily life. After the first call about Robin’s passing, Koko came to Dr. Patterson with an inquiring look on her face. Dr. Patterson explained that ‘we have lost a dear friend, Robin Williams. Koko was quiet and looked very thoughtful, Koko signed the words for “woman” and “crying.” Koko became very somber, with her head bowed and her lip quivering; she was crying over the loss of her friend.

"Robin made Koko smile — something she hadn’t done for over six months, ever since her childhood gorilla companion, Michael, passed away. Not only did Robin cheer up Koko, the effect was mutual, and Robin seemed transformed — from a high-energy entertainer, into a mellow, sensitive, empathetic guy, who also happened to be really funny." -Dr. Patterson

Hi everyone,Around a week ago, my friend’s 5-year-old cat Sprinkles was diagnosed with an ear canal polyp, which is essentially a cancerous growth. Her family is struggling to pay the bills right now trying to put two kids through college and support three family members in their 90s, so there’s no way they can afford the operation to have the polyp removed. If the polyp isn’t removed, it will eventually lead to Sprinkles’ death, which will happen slowly.I’ve known this cat as long as I’ve known my friend, and she is one of the sweetest cats I’ve ever met. Many people would be devastated if she died, but I think their dog Harley would be the most upset. Ever since Sprinkles was a kitten, Harley made it his purpose in life to protect her. Whenever she goes to the vet, he sits in his bed and cries until she gets back, and whenever he goes for a walk, Sprinkles sits in the window sill in the front of the house waiting.The vet has given them an estimate of $1600 for the operation and the medication she’ll need for a few weeks post-op, so I’m turning to the internet for help (with the blessing of my friend’s mother, of course). Every dollar counts. Please, please, please consider a donation to help this cat. If you can’t donate, every reblog helps this post reach more people who might be able to.
Here is the link to the GoFundMe. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to contact me and I’ll get back to you ASAP.
