Dad: Why do you think they do that?
Girl: Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff boys want to buy. [x]
that awkward moment when a child understands the harm of forcing gender roles better than most grown male politicians.
I’m surprised that I haven’t reblogged this, to be honest.
I love that last gif. She looks so frustrated. Like “Um, hello, obviously girls and boys can like anything why doesn’t anybody get that???”
When I have kids I want them to be like this little girl ok please
YAY THIS IS ON MY DASH AGAIN.
After we stripped the dead suspect and tested him for drug and alcohol use and then dug under his finger and toe nails for any incriminating DNA, we checked his blood-soaked clothes for any kind of evidence of wrong doing. All we found was 34 cents and a couple of baseball cards. …
That’s it? Gretchen Carlson asked dismayed.
Seems to me that something was obviously missing: why wasn’t there a receipt for the pop and candy? …
We at the Sanford Police Department asked the exact same question, Gretchen, Chief Bill Lee explained.
We concluded that the suspect must have stolen the candy and tea, and in my mind that bolstered Mr. Zimmerman’s self-defense claim.
Gretchen Carlson and Chief Bill Lee explaining their justifications for Zimmerman’s actions
I think I’m done with this case now. I’m washing my hands of it, because justice isn’t being served. Zimmerman wasn’t detained, he’s gone missing, Trayvon’s been completely dehumanized (stripped, tested for drugs/alcohol and violated for incriminating DNA while the killer roams free??) and apparently, he’s the suspect now.
Good to know I should keep all of my receipts forever to prove I didn’t steal something after I’m murdered. I guess we aren’t allowed to refuse or toss receipts that we know we won’t need.
Unlike the beautiful 6-year old Jonbenett Ramsey who received coverage all over the media - every tabloid, newspaper, news channel, talk show, 7-year old Aiyana Stanley was killed by a police officer during a raid while she was sleep and her murder received very little coverage at all.
Police, searching for a murder suspect, threw a flash grenade through the window of her family’s apartment around midnight. According to Aiyana’s father, it landed on the couch, setting Aiyana on fire. A police officer’s gun then went off, and shot Aiyana in the neck.
Aiyana was asleep on the living room sofa in her family’s apartment when Detroit police, searching for a homicide suspect, burst in and an officer’s gun went off, fatally striking the girl in the neck, family members said.
Her father, 25-year-old Charles Jones, told The Detroit News he had just gone to bed early Sunday after covering his daughter with her favorite blanket when he heard a flash grenade followed by a gunshot. When he rushed into the living room, he said, police forced him to lie on the ground, with his face in his daughter’s blood.
“I’ll never be the same. That’s my only daughter,” Jones told.
We haven’t forgotten about you baby. R.I.P.
I remember this. RIP..
Our girls ain’t safe either. I told y’all.
I coulda told you our girls wasn’t safe. Cops may be less quick to shoot, but anyone who watches Cops on the regular can see how they treat black girls. They’ll tackle em down to the floor too.
