Hallo! This is where I dump stuff that amuse me from other blogs, as well as the occasional doodle and once in a blue moon rambling about my life. Enjoy.

Transgender Teen Faces 1 Year Sentence After Fighting Off Bullies
TLTR; A 16 year old trans woman defends herself against 3 bullies who have constantly harassed her. Weeks after all 4 students were suspended, local police charge her, and only her, with misdemeanor battery. The Police Department refuses to recognize her as a trangender person so she would not be able to fall under hate crime protections.
When 10th grader Jewlyes Gutierrez, a transgender student, stood up to three bullies at her high school in November, all four students were suspended.
The incident made some local news. Gutierrez, 16, said she had asked an assistant principal at Hercules High School for help with chronic bullying a few days earlier, and gotten none. A school board meeting on December 2 focused on the incident. As the semester wound down, it seemed the story would stay in Hercules, California.
But a few weeks later, Contra Costa County Deputy District Attorney Daniel Cabral charged Gutierrez with misdemeanor battery. The charge came just months after California governor Jerry Brown passed a law enacting transgender student rights, making California the first state to enshrine certain protections to transgender students.
Now, a  petition—“Drop charges against transgender teen defending herself!”—has become one of the fastest growing petitions on Change.org, collecting more than 168,000 signatures since January 7.
(SIGN THE PETITION)
The alleged battery took place on November 13, 2013. Gutierrez is accused of slapping another student after having gum spat in her face.
On top of the petition, which was created by Gutierrez’s sister, supporters have sent Daniel Cabral more than 50 letters demanding that he dismiss the case. That could happen at a pre-trial conference scheduled for February 5, according to Kaylie Simon, Gutierrez’s attorney.
This is the first time Gutierrez has been charged with a crime. If convicted, Simon says, the maximum time she could face is one year, which might be served at a juvenile hall or a group home. She could also be sentenced to the Orin Allen Youth Rehabilitation Facility, or Byron Boys Ranch, which is a minimum security juvenile detention center. As the name suggests, the facility is for boys.
Jennifer Lopez, a journalist with the magazine  Everything Transgender in NYC, brought to light one part of that injustice. In an  interview with the TransAdvocate, Lopez recounted a conversation she had with Connie Van Putten of the Hercules Police Department.
Van Putten told Lopez “the transgender person is listed as a male on school records, therefore she would refer to the transgender person as a male,” Lopez said.
“Because [Gutierrez] is listed as a male, [Van Putten] did not identify [Gutierrez] as a transgender person," Lopez reported. Van Putten then told Lopez that because Gutierrez was listed as male in these records, she “would not be able to fall under hate crime [protections].”
Gutierrez still attends Hercules High, along with the other students from the incident.
“I feel negative attention and energy around them," Gutierrez said in an interview with the  Bay Area Reporter.
“Just because you’re different you’ll get picked on, name-calling, bullied, taunted, harassed, all those,” Gutierrez told NBC Bay Area in December. “I was just sticking up for myself.”

Rape Escape

  • Easy and very effective
  • Requires nothing but your body
  • Includes attack

Very useful to know, pass and share please.

Worth watching

I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this. 

I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head. 

Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away

So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out. 

I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot

PLEASE READ THIS POST

See this statue? It’s located at the Glendale Central Library. 
Big deal right? Yes. Yes it is. 

She stands here today as a memorial for the victims of the sexual slavery and abuse committed by the Japanese imperial military during WWII. Right now, Japan is running a petition to take her down.

We cannot let this happen.

Every Wednesday, the woman of Korea that were used as sexual slaves protest and cry out. However, Japan refuses to acknowledge their suffering. There have been no apologies and no recognition.

Please, please don’t let them get rid of her. Their pain deserves to be recognized and sympathized.

Luckily, There is a petition going on to save the girl and allow her to continue standing in Glendale CL. The link can be found here and you can read more about everything that she stands for here.  

Thank you so much for reading this. Even if you can’t sign this, please signal boost so other people will. 

[[A big thank you to tumblr user did-we-just-marry-thedevil for bringing this to my attention]]

If this statue is taken down, we are erasing the memories and pain of the thousands of Korean (and Chinese) sex slaves during WWII. As a Korean female myself, this is even more disheartening.

Please signal boost.
