You can get 151 games on itch.io, including things like Gone Home and Read Only Memories, for just $20, with the proceeds going to the American Civil Liberties Union and Planned Parenthood.

the bundle actually starts at just $2 for 89/151 of the games which is still A BUTTLOAD OF GAMES, so only if you can even give a little it adds up and you get your money’s worth and then some!!!

I don’t know too many games on the list, but I can personally recommend Gone Home, The Novelist, Read Only Memories, neocolonialism, and proteus. Hell, if you get this and get download neocolonialism, hit me up as i’d love to play this game with someone other than bots.

Learn to defend against a bigot grabbing your hijab from behind!

In this post-election hate-crime spike, self defense is more important than ever. Practice this move until it becomes muscle memory and teach your body to react before thinking.

(via Zee Abdulla)

Signal boost. Anyone know if this would work equally as well if he grabbed with his other hand? I feel it wouldn’t, but it’s still better than nothing.

If the attacker used the other hand, then the woman wearing the hijab could use the opposite arm than is shown. SO PRACTICE BOTH SIDES.

Also please note the position of her arm on his. It’s not on the elbow but just above it. That is will be important for the submission. The grip on her hand is important as well. It looks like she is using a monkey grip where the thumb stays with the fingers of the hand instead of wrapping around. It protects your thumb from being broken and can be a stronger grip in general.

But yes, practice practice practice practice

Btw, if you click on her name, Zee Abdulla, in the post it takes you to her Facebook where she has another video for a defense for a front hijab grab.

why does it matter if floriana is latina or not? she’s doing an amazing job portraying maggie and I personally am more than happy she’s the one playing her

Eeeeewhhhhhh representation likeee

They freaking lied that she was Latina n she freaking referred to herself as non-white but ‘why does it matter if Floriana is Latina or not’..ok sis go awf with your nonsense as if the non-white Lesbians weren’t happy for some representation n feel stupid for being lied to and manipulated.

You nailed it

Why does it matter when a white actress – who is not even a white Latina – is taking roles from actual Latinas (white or otherwise)?

For the millions of you that will lose your insurance if Obamacare is
repealed please call Paul Ryan. It took me about two minutes, most of that waiting patiently for the recording to end.

Paul Ryan is
conducting a phone poll on the ACA (Obamacare), hoping to hear
overwhelming popular opposition to it. If you would like to express your
support for the Affordable Care Act, call (202) 225-3031. Press 2 to
weigh in on the issue. You’ll hear a brief recording about HR-3762, Paul
Ryan’s proposal to gut the ACA, and
President Obama’s use of his veto power to stop it. Then, you will have a
chance to indicate your opinion with the press of a button.

Press 1 if you support Obamacare, 2 if you oppose it.

There is also an option after making your choice to leave a voicemail for Speaker Ryan, which I did, and recommend doing, but is obviously not required.

You don’t have to talk to anyone!! Should be easier on anxiety that way.

But make sure you listen to the options.

You will have to listen to 2-3 minutes of blatant lies and propaganda, but it’s worth it to tell this monster that he’s got it all wrong on ACA.

Reposted from something I saw on Facebook

“I just called the House Oversight Committee (202-225-5074) to support the call for a bipartisan review of Trump’s financials and apparent conflicts of interest. It took me two minutes, and the woman on the phone said that they are absolutely tallying calls – the more they get, the more likely the Committee is to demand ALL of Trump’s financial information.

She said that there’s not much time left, as they are out of the office next week for Thanksgiving. And after that, they’re going to make a decision.

NOW is your chance to use what’s left of democracy to send a strong message and demand change. Please, do this ASAFP. If you get a “mailbox is full” message, call back in a minute or so – that seems to be the default when lines are busy.

That number again is (202-225-5074). Website here:

https://oversight.house.gov/

“Likes” feel nice in the short term. “Shares” get the word out. ACTUALLY CALLING ACTUALLY DOES SOMETHING.”

Another measure to consider voicing support for if you call: Oversight Committee member Rep. Elijah Cummings has already requested that his colleagues investigate Russia’s potential involvement in the election.
