Police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, have begun wearing body cameras after weeks of unrest over the shooting death of an unarmed black teen by a white officer and sharply differing accounts of the incident, officials said on Sunday.
Michael Brown, 18, was shot multiple times by Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson on Aug. 9, sparking nearly three weeks of angry protests in the St. Louis suburb and drawing global attention to race relations in the United States.
Law enforcement and witnesses gave differing accounts of what transpired before Brown was shot, with police saying the teen had struggled with the officer. Witnesses say Brown held up his hands and was surrendering when he was shot multiple times in the head and chest.
The discrepancy has revived calls for officers across the county to be outfitted with body cameras to help capture an accurate record of police-involved incidents.
Translation: I don’t understand the difference between sex organs and secondary sex characteristics, nor do I understand how society has coded certain secondary sex characteristics to be sexual while others are left “neutral.” I also don’t understand how I am drawing a false equivalency between hair and breasts, as only one has been sexualized within Western cultures, and I’m really desperate to justify my own obsession with sexually harassing women.
Now they are secondary sex characteristics? Are we just going to keep on making up words until men aren’t allowed to look at women?
Feminists didn’t make up the term “secondary sex characteristics” to shame men for looking at women. It’s a scientific term for features that appear when a person or any other animal has reached sexual maturity. Here’s the wikipedia article since you were unable to look it up yourself.
People are of course allowed to appreciate others’ bodies. What is not acceptable is sending objectifying messages to a total stranger about the way their body looks.
ALSO, dying hair purple is a choice. Having large breasts is not. (Yeah, I know some women who weren’t that small to begin with get larger-than-average implants. Don’t even try to tell me that some random passerby can tell the difference at a glance. I’m not buying it.) People have been commenting on my breasts since I was 11 years old, and I am beyond done with that crap. There are very few things in the universe that piss me off faster than uninvited comments about anyone’s breast size.
I’m dying that bagelstripper thought ”secondary sex characteristics” is a made up word created by feminists lmao
back to high school biology for you

I’m Trans* and have Fibromyalgia, and this is really making a difference already. I hope this helps out other people. We all know it fucking sucks to have to pay this much for the medication we need to function in life.
When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?
Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.

I’m back in San Francisco after spending the summer in New York. I don’t know if it’s because it’s Labor Day and people are out of the city, but it feels really, really quiet. Either that or I’ve just gotten used to all the noise living in New York that being in San Francisco is just really quiet in comparison.
