    These tweets (and one retweet) are from my friend Ryan, a journalist who has been on the ground in Ferguson for the past few days. (His Twitter account is here, and it’s a great source of updates on the situation there   [x]).

    I just wanted to remind everybody that while spreading word about Michael Brown’s unjust murder and the horrifying events of the night of August 14, 2014, please do not oversimplify or ignore the complexities of the situation.

    Journalists in the town have been doing what journalists do: focusing on all the negative aspects about the community to try and make it look like a hell-hole in order to sell their own pictures and stories, and basically all many of them want to do is further their own careers. But focusing on all that negativity only paints the picture of one side of the story, ignoring a lot of other important things going on there.

    Please do not fall prey to the media’s game. Anger at the actions of the police in Ferguson is totally justified, but in the midst of that we cannot allow the people who are living with the situation every day to be dehumanized. Despite all this tragedy and chaos going on around them, they’re still a community and in many ways they’re pulling through all of it together. They want peace. Anyone looting or burning things down is a very small portion of the community. The whole story is so much bigger.

    A story doesn’t need tear gas to be interesting. We need to hear every side of this story, not just the horrific parts.

    TL:DR: please don’t fall prey to media attempts to dehumanize and oversimplify the situation in ferguson!!

    They/Their' as a singular pronoun is correct English.

    Stop excusing your transphobia by saying it isn’t. You’re wrong.

    My house is strange. There’s me, i’m bisexual, and I live with my gay brother and my asexual fiance.
    My brother and I have the same taste in boys, but i’m really the only one who likes girls, and my fiance is generally just really excited about dragons.

    Dude I want this sitcom

    is generally just really excited about dragons
