I am going to print this out, laminate it, and keep it with my gloves and spade.
PSA to all activists:
Please stop using ableist slurs to combat oppression.
Here are some better words that describe oppressors without bringing down the disabled community: narrow-minded, naive, unsympathetic, ridiculous, disgusting, ignorant, irrational, pathetic, repugnant, thoughtless, unjust. (And of course: racist, misogynist, transphobic, homophobic.)
Your toothpaste may be full of plastic.
Earlier this year, Phoenix dental hygienist Trish Walraven began noticing tiny blue dots trapped in the spaces between the teeth and gums of her patients.
"I thought it was maybe a cleaning product, or something people were chewing," Walraven told WCYB 5 News in Virginia. "Some weeks I’ll see [it in] five or six patients."
After further investigation and consultation with colleagues, she discovered that the dots were polyethylene, a plastic used in products like garbage containers, grocery bags, bulletproof vests and even knee replacements.
So possibly a helpful article, but the bullshit clickbait link is a little annoying considering nothing in the article actually tells you what toothpastes to avoid?
Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)
The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover
