A menstrual cup sits in the vagina and collects period blood. A lot of people like menstrual cups because they’re more environmentally friendly than tampons and pads. Have you ever tried one? #regram zinteta #art #menstrualcups #periodproud #periodpositive #rainbow

We oppose Brett Kavanaugh. . The SPLC is among 10 Alabama civil rights organisations that strongly urged U.S. Sens. Richard Shelby and Doug Jones today to vote against his nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court Court. .

Academy Award-winning actress Anne Hathaway spoke from the heart about the vital importance of being an ally for the LGBTQ community as she was presented with the HRC National Ally for Equality Award at the HRC National Dinner. Watch her full speech here: https://youtu.be/yozqpDzuk1Q
We identified the interim police chief of Colbert, Oklahoma in materials produced by a racist skinhead hate group. He resigned — then got hired as a police officer in Achille, Oklahoma. That's the same town where adults threatened a transgender middle schooler last month for using the bathroom during her first week at Achille Public Schools.
As a Coast Guard official detailed Hurricane Florence efforts, a man behind him looked directly at the camera, and then shaped his hand into the “okay” sign — a circle between his thumb and pointer finger, the rest raised. That's a white power symbol. The Coast Guard has since "removed him from the response.”
The Trump-Pence administration said it was committed to ending the HIV epidemic. That was a lie.
Ordinary people. That is what we need to #StopKavanaugh. Whether it was abusing his power over a young woman 30 years ago, or abusing his power over women’s lives as a judge, he should not be considered for a seat on the Supreme Court.

Dealing with the aftermath of rape or sexual assault can be overwhelming. It can take a lot of time — even years — to feel safe again. But talking about trauma isn’t mandatory and it isn't the same for everyone. Many people find it helps them heal. Others say it can feel like the trauma …
A rock was thrown at a Polish synagogue during Yom Kippur services. No one should be victim to anti-Semitic attacks like this, especially on the holiest day of the Jewish year.

Does the sign, the thumb and forefinger joined together in a circle, the remaining three fingers splayed out behind, mean “all’s good?” Or does it mean “white power” instead? The often accompanying smirk gives away the proper answer: You’re being trolled. splcenter.org/hatewatch/2018…550 Likes • 382 Retweets
When we ignore the role of white people in systemic racism, we obscure reality.
