“Many in the trans community are fed up with L.G.B.T. organizations that continue to erase trans identity or just give lip service to trans issues. We need our cisgender allies – gay and straight – to treat transgender lives as if they matter, and trans people need multiple seats at the tables in the organizations that say they’re interested in L.G.B.T. equality; this absence has been painful since Stonewall.”—Laverne Cox (source)
“In the course of interview work in the Dominican Republic, we have found that European and North American male sexpatriates and hardcore sex tourists are more than willing to hold forth on what is wrong with European/North American societies. The developments that trouble them most are those which they perceive to undermine a ‘natural’ hierarchy that is classed, gendered and ‘raced’. They rail against taxes, and most especially against tax-payers’ money being spent on social welfare programmes for the undeserving poor (and more or less anyone who is poor in the West is deemed to be undeserving); they remonstrate against affirmative action programmes and/or equal opportunities legislation, as well as against divorce laws which empower women in relation to men, against women’s entitlement to child support payments, and so on. Without prompting, they also bemoan the state’s increasing incursion into spheres of life which they believe should be a matter of individual (white male) conscience, so that, for example, they take great exception to laws which compel them to wear seatbelts in cars and which prohibit drink-driving.”—Julia O’Connell Davidson, The Sex Tourist, The Expatriate, His Ex-wife and Her ‘Other’: The Politics of Loss, Difference and Desire (via sociolab)
So I work at a photo lab and an elderly woman came up to pay and after each transaction I have, I ask: “can I help you find anything else today?” She responded with, “A million bucks.” The elderly man behind her said, “Ma’am, if you want a million bucks, just look in the mirror.” Her jaw dropped and she was completely smitten.

“If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also”—
This specifically refers to a hand striking the side of a person’s face, tells quite a different story when placed in it’s proper historical context. In Jesus’s time, striking someone of a lower class ( a servant) with the back of the hand was used to assert authority and dominance. If the persecuted person “turned the other cheek,” the discipliner was faced with a dilemma. The left hand was used for unclean purposes, so a back-hand strike on the opposite cheek would not be performed. Another alternative would be a slap with the open hand as a challenge or to punch the person, but this was seen as a statement of equality. Thus, by turning the other cheek the persecuted was in effect putting an end to the behavior or if the slapping continued the person would lawfully be deemed equal and have to be released as a servant/slave.
