Update: 11 year old trans girl lost appeal
The above article is an update. Her mother went to appeal to keep her out of the psychiatric ward and lost. She will be institutionalized because of her expression of her gender. She will be held until she conforms to male gender and then released to foster care, not her mother who was supporting her.
Please, if you haven’t signed the petition, sign it, reblog it, ask your friends to sign it. We’ve managed to get 40K signatures for a pageant model, we’ve only gotten 11K for a little girl about to have her life ruined. Lets get on the ball and spread the word.
Number of signatures:10,664
This is a petition on the Directgov website - this goes straight through to parliament and at the current time of posting it only has 21 signatures
I know a lot of people are reblogging the one sponsored by anonymous which is great but if you live in the UK, this is going to be your best best at getting yourself heard about ACTA - even if you don’t live in the UK or even the EU, PLEASE REBLOG THIS, as ACTA is something that not only affects Europe but the rest of the world as well and this could be one of the only opportunities for it to be downturned
COME ON GUYS!!!!!
No more pretending to be US citizens just to sign petitions! This one’s international so we can petition our government too and we NEED to let them know we’re not ok with this.
We’re already in danger of extradition just for posting links to pirated files (see Richard O’Dwyer’s case), and this would make things a whole lot worse.
411 signatures. I know you guys can do much, much better than that.
Sign both petitions, but this one is more important.
Anonymous is more or less seen as a criminal hacker group even if their intents and purposes here are good, they are hardly going to be taken seriously.
sign it! just do it!

ACTA has just been signed by the European Commission and several European countries
BUT….. the European Parliament still has to vote about it.
If you haven’t signed the petition against ACTA yet, please do it now, it will be presented to the European Parliament. And they are kind of the last hope we got to stop this. If the parliament votes NO to ACTA, it can still be stopped. SO DO IT.
& why you should care about this
Please take moment and just sign the petition. Thank you! And reblog and let your followers to sign it too.
it’s also worth reading this, as it offers a lot of insight into ACTA and how it will affect europe, as well as what you can do to help, etc.

Apparently, Obama has already signed ACTA. Possibly illegally.
You can read more about it here.
If you live in the United States, PLEASE sign this petition to get ACTA reviewed by the Senate.
Otherwise, keep spreading the word about ACTA!
Yes please signal boost this, this is more important than the other petition going around! Obama has already signed ACTA so we need to get it to the Senate and then make sure they don’t approve it.

Tennessee is trying to pass a bill that makes it legal to bully homosexuals if you are religiously or morally against homosexuality. Please sign this petition.
They are trying to make it legal to bully homosexuals. Every signature counts.
Bad state government. No more cookies for you.
are you fucking kidding me? To legally advocate the intolerance and bullying of anyone just because you don’t like them is beyond ridiculous. I can’t even…. Tennessee is literally advocating the Holocaust with this bill. That’s not even an exaggeration.
“Creating a hostile educational environment” shall not be construed to include discomfort and unpleasantness that can accompany the expression of a viewpoint or belief that is unpopular, not shared by other students, or not shared by teachers or school officials.
The policy shall not be construed or interpreted to infringe upon the First Amendment rights of students and shall not prohibit their expression of religious, philosophical, or political views; provided, that such expression does not include a threat of physical harm to a student or damage to a student’s property.

So what they’re saying is that this law makes it okay to have your own opinion and you won’t get in trouble for it. Sounds a lot like the First Amendment, right?? Right. Except for that little clause saying it doesn’t matter if doing so creates a hostile environment. And when you violently express your opinion using derogatory slurs and insults to a person whom your opinion is about, and they take their own life, that’s okay, because you were just expressing your opinion.
If I’m missing something here that somebody out there notices, please please point it out to me, I would love to be wrong about this.
WHY THE FUCK ARE ALL THESE SHITTY BILLS TRYING TO GET PASSED ALL AT THE SAME TIME
THIS RIGHTFULLY PISSES ME OFF.
You are letting the bullies who have picked on me and my friends and my sister have a reason to bully if someone can stand up to them. I’m glad I moved, but I’m upset for all the defend-less children who still live there.
Starting to give some more credence to the Mayan Prophecy thing.
