Fuck Yeah The Silence

knowhomo:

Note:Please DO NOT spam this survey. We had four identical answers (including the same spelling error in the notes). You are not helping us, or yourself (with those we share the information with), by spamming this survey. These duplicates will be dropped completely. 

 We have decided to extend the survey to allow 1,500 responses. Thank you for all of your time and energy. This will be the final cap.

Our survey has 624 spaces left , as of 12:51 PM, EST. 

KNOWhomo:

This survey is set for 1,000 responses (max). In the first 24 hours, we’ve had 708 of you share your insight. It looks like we will cap out this evening. If you’d like to participate, we recommend sooner than later. Also, if you run an LGBTQ* website and feel you have friends, family, and followers who may provide their own time, it’s not to late to share this and get credited in the graphics at the end of the month.

KNOWhomo’s Quarterly Survey

After a gathering with friends last month, we started to discuss what “labels” we use when describing ourselves to our peers and other members of the LGBTQ* family. There was also discussion about terms that are slowly disappearing from our lexicon (or evolving into a more inclusive term).

The KNOWhomo.tumblr Team would love your insight and we have created a brief survey (3 questions in length).

The survey is anonymous but we ask that you answer it sincerely. We also ask that if you are comfortable sharing the link with your peers, please do so. We would like to break 1000 individuals and create a Tumblr KNOWhomo series of graphs/infographs. We can only do this with your help.

If you are a prominent Tumblr page (representing the LGBTQ* community, not a personal page), PM us your page so we can credit those who get the information out. 

Keep On, Keeping On!

Hi guys! I wanted to inform you about this great thing that is happening!

These smart fellows have devised a way to create cups, straws, mixers, etc that can detect common date rape drugs. This is an amazing idea and it needs funding! The campaign ends in 35 hours and they are a little short on funding. Please, signal boost this or even give a dollar if you can, it’s a great cause and something that will really change the world!

gogogo!

Only 28 hours left! Check this out and spread the word!

At least three dead in two shootings at Jewish centers in Kansas. 15-year-old boy reported to be critically wounded; police report one person was in custody; man reportedly yelled ‘Heil Hitler’ when police arrested him.

Click here for the full story and breaking developments

Reblogging again to add: 

Also, non-Jews, please spread this. People will forget about it otherwise. The police say they aren’t ready to call it a hate crime, despite the fact that witnesses have said that the man was asking people if they were Jewish and waiting for an affirmative response before shooting. The more people who are paying attention to this story the harder it will be for it to be swept under the rug. 

A lot of people are currently very excited about the recent Cap movie. If you believe that it was worthwhile for Steve Rogers to fight fictional nazis, please show that you care about the people harmed by those in the real world who still agree with Nazi ideology. If you can get super excited and make tons of posts about Cap, then you can do this too, right? (obviously there are people who are upset/triggered by this stuff, which is an entirely different situation. but if you can spread the word please do)

I’m very sorry to those of you who don’t come to my blog expecting to see news or other horrible real world stuff. I thought it was worth putting out there.

Also the shooter is a former KKK Grand Dragon

A man who used to be my doctor and also ran the community theater in my hometown was one of the people killed, as was his grandson (who they moved to Kansas to be closer to.) Things like this should never happen, and yet they do.

please pass this on. don’t let anti-Semites get away with such hateful crimes, such heartless attacks. this will get lost in the shuffle of news that isn’t held to any expectation of justice or mass awareness and won’t be held accountable as a hate crime. please let people know.

Please don’t let this fade out. Every single signature and boost counts.

LONELY DOG AT ANIMAL SHELTER AWAITS ADOPTION - She currently is the only dog at the pound and stays in her kennel nearly the entire day.”

A Pit Bull mix named Gracie is currently the only dog at the Windsor Locks Animal Shelter in Connecticut.  The shelter is in a low-traffic area, which appears to result in fewer opportunities for people to learn about Gracie. She does not have many visitors. She seems very lonely now, but hopefully Gracie finds a family soon. Please share! (Photo from the Shelter Connecticut Facebook page)

DO NOT SCROLL PASS. THIS IS YOUR DAUGHTER, YOUR SISTER, YOUR FRIEND. PLEASE HELP TO BRING #relisha #rudd BACK HOME SAFE AND SOUND.

Y’all, this case is like 3000% legit. It’s been all over the news in my area and the search for her has turned into a search for her body. The man who took her is also wanted for the murder of his own wife.  

Those are both true, links here and here
Relisha is the 3rd girl to go missing in the our area in the past month. She is thought to be with Kahlil Malik Tatum, a janitor at her school, who is thought to be driving either of the cars stated in the above flyer. Please signal boost this, the DC Police may have started to give up hope, but there still may be a chance for Relisha Rudds.
