do you want to hear a joke
the north american education system

How glorious is this?! Upcycling at its finest…
“Agree to disagree” is white guy speak for “I understand you have an opinion but unfortunately, me.”
“You’d think the US government had bigger priorities than treating honors students like criminals, yet here we are”
holy shit, we’re finally recognized.
Everyone should freaking watch this
Watch this right the fuck now, all of you.
When then-14-year-old Gina Celaya killed the man who tried to rape her, the state of Arizona sentenced her to life in prison.
Today — after twenty years in prison, and almost as many years of legal battles fought from state courts up to the federal court of appeals — Gina is finally free.
That’s the American “justice system” for you. Serving up injustice to poor people, people of color, and women, since 1776 … She has served more years in jail than the number of years she had been on this Earth at the time of her supposed “crime.”
Meanwhile, actual murderers and rapists walk around freely if they wear a police badge or serve in the U.S. military.
There are no words for how much I fucking hate this country.
There is no justice system.
I hope no one ever interferes with her life again.
“Oh, you don’t have to worry! If you hurt someone while defending yourself, the police and justice system will be on your side!”
Bullshit. Look at what happened to this woman. There are no words indeed.
But wait… I thought rape culture tells us to yell louder, kick, scream, punch, etc.?? Aren’t we supposed to do any and everything we can to avoid it from happening and if we don’t, then it’s our fault??? But then when we do, we spend 20 years in prison???? What in the fucking fuck.
Excuse me while I go hate the world.
fucking Arizona again. And yet we never hear this stuff on our local news…
