Barbie, Children, and Family: Woman Creates Same-Sex Barbie Family in Support of Marriage Equality @balleralert Woman Creates Same-Sex Barbie Family in Support of Marriage Equality-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ A doll artist in Australia has created a same-sex Barbie family to encourage others to be more supportive about marriage equality. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Betty Strachan-Otter is the artist behind these creative dolls. She sells the dolls through her "All The Little Dolls" business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ What makes Strachan-Otter's creations so unique though, is their realism. In the past, she has created other thought provoking Barbies such as a pregnant and a breastfeeding Barbie. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In an interview with Daily Mail, Strachan-Otter explained that she created the lesbian mothers and their three children in efforts to normalize the portrayal of same-sex families. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ "I like to use my dolls to depict scenes containing positive affirmations to those who can relate to them.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ For Strachan-Otter, same-sex marriage shouldn't even be up for debate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “Nobody worries about who you love when you’re in a committed straight relationship so why should same-sex couples need to be treated any differently?”

Bowser, Friday, and Golden State Warriors: D.C. Mayor Welcomes Golden State Warriors "If Anyone Ever Tells You That You Cannot Come to D.C., Tell Them Mayor Bowser Invited You" @balleralert D.C. Mayor Welcomes Golden State Warriors “If Anyone Ever Tells You That You Cannot Come to D.C., Tell Them Mayor Bowser Invited You” - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Friday, StephCurry shared his opinion about the Golden State Warriors’ championship visit to the White House. Although he didn’t want to go for his own personal beliefs, the final decision would be left up to the team and organization. However, before the team was able to decide for themselves, Trump took offense to Curry’s statement and withdrew the invitation, prompting a Twitter storm of backlash. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In turn, the Warriors released a statement, saying they would use their trip to D.C. to embrace their team values of equality and inclusion. Shortly after the team’s announcement, another elected official in D.C. welcomed the team to the nation’s capital. D.C. Mayor MurielBowser shared a statement on social media welcoming the team to practice their First Amendment rights and-or lose to their beloved Washington Wizards during Warriors’ visit in February. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We are Washington, D.C. We are proud to be our nation’s capital,” Bowser said. “We welcome over 20 million visitors a year. Whether you’re here to work, play, practice your First Amendment rights, or lose to our Wizards, we welcome all to visit our museums, our monuments, our restaurants, and our thriving neighborhoods if they do so peacefully and respectfully. While you’re here, Warriors, we are happy to identify ways for you to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion – what we call DC values. And if anyone ever tells you that you cannot come to DC, tell them Muriel Bowser invited you.”

America, Love, and Memes: Dear America, True hate is often hard to define, but easy to identify once it has been seen..... Now being declared a State of Emergency: The actions that have taken place today in Charlottesville, VA can be defined as nothing else but.... Hatred, Bigotry, and Racism ALL of these words apply to what is currently taking place and I assure you that every action that has happened today is wrong and is the very thing that we as REAL Americans should stand together AGAINST! As our President said earlier today.... "No matter our color, creed, religion, or political party, we are ALL Americans first!" Patriotism is NOT Racism..... However, The actions by soo many today are the reasons soo many people have problems separating the two words. The simple lie of using the term "patriot" to fuel your own selfish and racist false narratives of the way you think the world should be.... Is nothing more than monstrous and repugnant. Today my thoughts and prayers are for the people affected in Charlottesville......now is the time for reflection on what to do next and hopes of a speedy recovery for those injured and prayers for the families of the ones not coming home. Tomorrow, on the other hand..... Is time for the REAL Americans to come and stand together UNITED against those that want to tear us apart through false narratives and false statements of patriotism to simply fuel their hatred. Tomorrow..... It's time we all simply said.....enough! We are Americans......ALWAYS! -Graham🇺🇸 USA patriotism freedom love equality nohate

Men: YOU WANT A MATRIARCHY, THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT! Late 20th century Feminists: Hey we would like to make our own choices about ou reproductive health, just like you've always had. Men YOU ARE TRYING TO TAKE MEN'S RIGHTS AWAY! Modern-day feminists: Hey, if you could you stop sexually assaulting/harassing us and then blaming us for it, that'd be pretty great. Men: THIS IS MISANDRY, MISANDRY I SAY! FEMINISTS HAVE GONE TOO FAR! Feminists: Um Men: THE END OF MEN IS NIGH MALE OPPRESSION IS REAL! THE MATRIARCHAL AGE IS UPON US! Repost from @galaxyfeminism · and yes obviously *not all men* are like this, this is talking about those who are & how the feminist movement has continuously been met with opposition and hate. That's why it is frustrating when people now say "I support early feminist movements but I hate what feminism is now." That means "when it was explicitly stated in the law that women had fewer rights, that was bad, but now that women can vote and own land they just need to stop complaining about other sexist things because some women in other countries can't even vote!!!1!" Saying you have gender equality because women in your country have more rights than women in other countries is like saying you did well on the test because you got a 50% but some people got a 30% so it's okay. Strive for 100%. Let's hold ourselves to a higher standard than defining equality as "it's not explicitly stated that you don't have certain rights (*except in certain cases where local laws do restrict access to birth control-bodily autonomy or try to ban trans people from bathrooms or try to restrict rights of LGTBQ+ people)." Equality under the law doesn't necessarily result in actual equal treatment, whether you're looking at discrimination based on race, religion, gender, class, sexuality, etc. This is especially noticeable regarding race and the treatment of black people in the US, as when slavery became illegal the prison system became an institution that essentially legalized slavery (if you are not familiar with this, watch "13th" or Google "why the us prison system is legalized slavery"). And just because something is legal doesn't mean it's ethical, let's not pretend the government is the epitome of morality 🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃
