Here is Peach doing her very best rectangle.
not sure if this is a stupid question but did transitioning change how your tattoos look or are positioned?
I’d say they look better now than before tbh but I imagine that experience might be different from person to person

Police shoot, beat, chase, and arrest anti-fascist counterprotestors yesterday. The counter-protestors began demonstrating outside a Proud Boy anti-trans rally at WiSpa. The police beat clearly marked press and shot either a rubber bullet or bean bag at a woman at point blank range. The police even got an AMBER alert sent out citywide as part of their suppression of the ant-fascist protest.
Police explicitly protect fascism and fascists.
Facebook post from Matt Norris.
Post reads like a conversation between 2 people:
Prison labor is a problem we need to address soon.
Convicts in prison should have to work like the rest of us.
You mean like slavery?
No, we’re giving them 3 meals and a bed, at our expense, while they just sit around and watch TV. They should have to work!
Right. Like slavery.
It’s not like slavery!
Can they leave?
Can they refuse work?
So how exactly isn’t this slavery?
We DO pay them!
Do we pay in accordance with labor laws?
No. We pay them between 33 cents and $1.41/hour with a maximum daily wage below $5, then take up to half of that as room&board fees and victim compensation.
Right. So like slavery.
Image then links to this url.
Below URL image reads “fun bonus fact: enough of our labor market currently relies on labor at these depressed rates, that it has a substantial downward pressure on both wages and job availability in low-skilled sectors. Immigrants aren’t taking your jobs. Slavery is.
I’d also like to add it’s not just private prisons. It’s also private detention centers where ICE keeps the immigrants.
The constitution even acknowledges that it’s still slavery
a hefty chunk of items with that ‘made in america’ sticker are in fact made by prison labor
at the very least anything that is a product of prison labor should be required to have a similar sticker to inform consumers they are taking part of this system, which is difficult to track because prison made manufactured goods include almost the entire uniform of a US soldier, road construction in most southern states, and agricultural goods sold in most stores
this…. looks familliar
Prison is just covert slavery and that’s why they wanna keep so many black people in there for the smallest offences.
This is insane
(Just to clarify, I’m not saying you’re wrong. I’m just giving you more information because you’re right, and I like your blog, and I want you to have sources in case you need them.)
It’s not even covert. It’s blatant and overt. It’s even called slavery in the constitution.
“Slavery is illegal except as punishment for a crime.”Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
People just don’t care because they think it’s all murderers and rapists, despite the fact that the number of violent criminals in jail is so small it might as well be negligible.As of September 30, 2009 in federal prisons, 7.9% of sentenced prisoners were incarcerated for violent crimes, while at year end 2008 of sentenced prisoners in state prisons, 52.4% had been jailed for violent crimes. In 2002 (latest available data by type of offense), 21.6% of convicted inmates in jails were in prison for violent crimes. Among unconvicted inmates in jails in 2002, 34% had a violent offense as the most serious charge. 41% percent of convicted and unconvicted jail inmates in 2002 had a current or prior violent offense; 46% were nonviolent recidivists.
It’s literally slavery, just dumbass racists and capitalists don’t care enough to figure out why we’re calling it that.
Join the Movement to Amend the 13th and abolish slavery once and for all. So many cops plant drugs on people, AKA modern slavecatching, it’s all cops do. Switzerland has no police
A training slideshow used at one time by Kentucky State Police encouraged troopers to be “ruthless killer(s)” and contained quotes from Adolf Hitler, student journalists at a Kentucky high school uncovered this week.
“Be the loving father, spouse, and friend as well as a ruthless killer,” reads a slide included in the presentation. That same slide includes a quote from Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” that reads “The very first essential for success is a perpetually constant and regular employment of violence.” The presentation also contained other quotes from the Nazi Party leader, as well as Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee
The Manual RedEye, the online school newspaper of duPont Manual High School in Louisville, broke the story Friday. The slideshow was obtained as part of an open records request a local attorney made during the discovery phase of a lawsuit regarding a Harlan County man who was shot and killed by a detective in 2018. The school publication says that lawyer, David Ward of Adams Landenwich Walton, shared the presentation with the student journalists.
Mark Kelly and Kristen Sinema are both directly referenced by him. For fuck’s sake.
Blue dogs can go straight to hell
It is fucking nuts to me that Qanon idiots will spend all day blogging about secret illuminati groups using warlocks to control government meanwhile oil executives admit to rigging politics on TV while naming their corrupt toadies and nobody bats a fucking eye.
The head of Atlanta’s police union confirmed Wednesday June 17th, 2020 that officers from the Atlanta Police Department in Zones 3 and 6 walked off the job Wednesday afternoon.
Vince Champion, southeast regional director of the International Brotherhood of Police officers, said that police officers had stopped answering calls midshift, in response to charges against Officer Garrett Rolfe who is accused of murdering Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta.
Police are doing what they call the BlueFlu: a strike action, especially among police officers, in which workers are absent on the pretext of “sickness”.
name one other profession in which an employee commits literal murder, and all their coworkers walknout in “solidarity” when they face consequences for it. the insanity. ACAB
Losing my mind remembering that pic chelsea manning posted of the extremely undercover and not at all obvious fbi agent who was tailing her after her release
what kind of sixth sense do american have to recognize fbi agents that easily
to paraphrase her, its always the shoes.
americans please explain to a foreigner, he looks like some random dude to me
1. They all have the same haircut, almost everybody in law enforcement and the military have the same haircut due to regulations.
2. They all wear the same shoes. Same boots, and same overpolished dress shoes.
3. They act different. Shifty eyed and always on their own.
4. They’re kinda really bad at their jobs. I’ve encountered plenty of “undercover” cops outside of bars that ask questions no regular person in their right mind would ever ask. “How are you getting home?” “Who did you come here with tonight?”
5. America is a police state on a budget. Most officers are poorly trained, fbi agents require a 4 year degree (I think), but lord knows how much training they actually get. And the dumb kids from your high school always become cops.
It’s always the dense as a brick kid, with something to prove that becomes a cop. The kid that mouth-breathed and couldn’t chew gum and walk at the same time.
Their shirts are never form fitting so they can conceal a weapon and cuffs.
Always look at the watch, it’ll be expensive but in neutral tones (uniform standards strike again).
They will always sit where they can see their target and the nearest exit.
They will have a partner who is less obvious but wil point a recording device (phone or camera) at you. Check elevated positions, it gives them the clearest view to track you and keep an eye on their partner at the same time.
One time when i lived in phoenix, I was driving home through residential streets from Panda Express on April 20th and there was a 40something year old white man standing quite literally in the MIDDLE of the fucking road wearing a brand new straight from the store weed jersey (jersey #420 with a big pot leaf), a wornout old raiders hat, regular-fit straight leg jeans, and cop shoes. This man proceeded to try to wave me down to stop since I was driving slowly (again, residential neighborhood) and as he did so fully yelled “You buying bro? You buying? 420 bro 420 you buying?”
I almost choked laughing so hard. I couldn’t stop myself from just yelling “NO THANK YOU OFFICER” as i drove by him.
for the past 60 years law enforcement, military, and even literal espionage/intelligence based organizations have assumed that rigid conformity to dress code was more important then actually training how to go undercover, blend in, or understand what the fuck theyre doing
largely because the ‘we are infallible’ mindset is too strong for them to consider they might not be doing very good
shoutout to the two “undercover cops” who were at my school to monitor the student body for a week, acting like “substitute assistants” and literally all of the kids immediately recognised them as cops and everyone would address them only as “officer” which annoyed the hell out of them because “we aren’t cops” like sir you literally have your badge in your back pocket and a taser what fucking substitute assistant would have an actual police badge and a whole ass taser??
Just a casual reminder that this is what secret police are. Like, this is the literal definition. Police who are (badly or otherwise) pretending to not be police.
i know this has eight billion notes already but i love sharing these images
This thread reminds me of this story lol
From Tom Wolfe’s Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test:
I’m gonna go ahead and put a caveat here because undercover cops are easy to spot, but they recruit too. informants are harder to pin down and they are infinitely more effective. Red Fawn Fallis very likely had a gun planted on her at Standing Rock by her partner of a couple years who was an FBI informant. Fred Hampton was drugged and killed by COINTELPRO thanks to an informant in the Black Panthers.
the US federal government, like any effective system, has lots of redundancy built in. yes, undercovers are easy to clock and avoid, but they are also essentially a lure to collect more valuable players. all it takes is busting the one person vulnerable enough to take a deal instead of prison time. feel free to ridicule, just don’t underestimate their potential to do damage if you find yourself near one.
bingus of the dungeons
when we try to befriend cats we mimic their meows and get down on the ground to their level and try to gently coax them to interact with us right
that horrifying entity mimicking human noises at us maybe just thinks we’re cool and wants to pet us?
had to draw it
a few people pointed out that they probably wouldn’t understand what they were saying and just mimicking whatever sounds they happen to hear so I wanted to add this
A short manga about a cute assassin from Toshiya Wakabayashi, mangaka of Tsurezure Children
He tried posting it on reddit but couldn’t figure out how to so he just copied someone else’s post
I will protect this man with my life.
He actually redrew one of the panels since the original animal pun couldn’t translate
Great news everyone! Part 2 is finally in English
Heads up–Toshiya Wakabayashi is selling a PDF of the first chapter’s English version on pixivBOOTH for only 324 yen (that’s $2.86 USD)! PayPal can be used to pay!
Thanks for addding that. I’ll be grabbing it.
this is my highest note post and I really hope I got him some sales
The tweet with the purchase link seems to have been deleted, but I found the first collection for sale here: https://www.pixiv.net/fanbox/creator/465084/shop
This is one of the weirdest and most amazing things i’ve ever seen
this may be an Unpopular Opinion (even on tumblr) but like the 8-hour workday is just Too Gotdamn Long
like even sitting in an office for eight hours a day isn’t particularly pleasant (or healthy, as we are beginning to see) but when we’re talking about doing *actual work* for that same amount time it gets pretty fucking brutal
doing literally *anything* (even leisure activities) for eight hours straight tends to be less than enjoyable but when we’re talking about things like construction, landscaping, factory work, and hell, even foodservice and retail, eight hours is a fucking ETERNITY
i might just be a lazy weak-willed bitch but honestly i think i’m not entirely wrong
this was being worked towards by leftist labor unions way back in the day after the time of FDRs new deal. people in the 40s and 50s were already starting to realize that we no longer actually needed an 8 hour work day or even a 5 day work week.
even with the comparatively primitive factory tech of the time we were already creating a huge amount of excess production back then and companies were making massive amounts of profit. So it already stood to reason that companies should either let their employees work less and thus each employee could work a shorter shift without lowering the yearly compensation of each employee, or in cases where businesses provide an active service they would shorten the shift but hire more people to cover the necessary operating time. but of course that would mean less money for people at the top so companies fought back hard and we ended up with nixon’s bullshit and so on and now its considered the norm for us to spend the vast majority of our lives doing work that really just amounts to waste.
The IWW realised this and were fighting for it all the way back in the 1930s. This is a take with a lot of historical and theoretical grounding, OP, so you’re standing in good stead.
I’d also like to add it’s also been studied and scientifically proven that after 6 hours, we have an extremely noticeable drop in productivity. Sweden saw nothing but benefits from a 6-hour work day, including worker productivity, happiness, and half the amount of sick-leave used when applied to nurses.
Just gonna add that the IWW is still kicking and basically anyone who is not an employer can join.

Ok, so I was reading this news story:
So far so normal, right? But then:
Like what. And then:
Like, I think Alaska State Trooper Ken Marsh wants to be a romance novelist.
