The officer thought he had an arrest but it didn’t pan out

My favorite thing about Fiona is she is 100% ready to punch you out for being a jerk to her. She doesn’t go “Oh, maybe I deserved it” or “Next time I’ll be more gaurded and this won’t happen”
No. She’s not changing shit. It was your fault you were being an asshole, and assholes get punched in the face.
Fionna is a boss babe.
I got dressed in my traditional Indian regalia, but there was a man, he was the producer of the whole show. He took that speech away from me and he warned me very sternly. “I’ll give you 60 seconds or less. And if you go over that 60 seconds, I’ll have you arrested. I’ll have you put in handcuffs.”

They were MAD, CONFUSED AND PRESSED that Marlon Brando would betray White Supremacy in this way.
To this very day, they are TWISTED over this.
And when Littlefeather got up there and READ THEM FOR FILTH, they GAGGED. For eons.
So I imagine there are people like me out there who’ve never even heard of Marlon Brando and are extremely confused over why this is important.
Marlon Brando was the Don in The Godfather, and in 1973, he was nominated for and won an Academy Award for it. However, he was also a huge Natives rights activist, and boycotted the ceremony because he felt that Hollywood’s depictions of Native Americans in the media led to the Wounded Knee Incident (which I was always taught as “the second massacre at Wounded Knee” but apparently that’s not the real name). He sent Sacheen Littlefeather, an Apache Native rights activist, in his stead. Wikipedia’s article on her explains the rest:
Brando had written a 15-page speech for Littlefeather to give at the ceremony, but when the producer met her backstage he threatened to physically remove her or have her arrested if she spoke on stage for more than 60 seconds. Her on-stage comments were therefore improvised. She then went backstage and read the entire speech to the press. In his autobiography My Word is My Bond, Roger Moore (who presented the award) claims he took the Oscar home with him and kept it in his possession until it was collected by an armed guard sent by the Academy.
That is what this gifset is about.
You have GOT to read up on this. The Wounded Knee Incident, Marlon Brando and Sacheen Littlefeather, Anna Mae Aquash. ALL OF IT.
Her name was known in my house, I hope it’s known in many, many more in the future.

این عکس را اول تقدیم میکنیم به مادرانمان و بعدا به تمام زنان سرزمینمان کوردستان.
پوشیدن لباس زنانهی کوردی نه تنها تحقیر نیست بلکه یک افتخار بزگ است برای ما.
از دیرباز زنان سرزمینمان پا به پای مردان در همهی جایگاه جامعه حضور داشتهاند،
در آن زمانی که به خاطر زن بودن آنهارا زنده به گور میکردند، زنان ملتمان کوردستان در جنگها فرمانده و در جامعه از ارزش والایی برخوردار بودند،
هیچ کس و هیچ دولت و قانونی نمیتواند به زنان ما بی احترامی کند .
“Being a woman is not a means to humiliate and punish anyone”
After a policeman in the Iranian Kurdish town of Marivan paraded an accused criminal in traditional Kurdish women’s clothes in the streets in order to humiliate him, women marched in the city condemning the use of women’s attire as a kind of humiliation.
In support, an internet campaign of Kurdish and other Iranian men has sprung up showing men wearing Kurdish women’s clothes and messages and support. For example, this message says,”wearing Kurdish women’s clothes is not only not an insult, it is instead a great honor for us,” and goes on to describe how women stand side by side with men in every part of society and during wartime.

زن بودن ابزار تحقیر و تنبیه هیچ کس نیست

this retailer sells a halal nail polish. this allows for oxygen and water to go through the nail, which makes it acceptable to wear during prayer. spread the word.
“Being a relatively modern creation, nail polish remains obviously unaddressed by early Islamic sources. But the general consensus in the Islamic community is that praying with nail polish is impermissible because of the waterproof barrier it creates on nails, which prevents the wudu ritual from being completed five times a day.” (source)
telling all my islamic buds
this is actually incredible.
relevant also for Hebrew ladies who go to the mikveh~
Would this actually be permissible for proper immersion?
halakhically speaking, it should do!

I realize you’re hurt by the ignorant words of “white people” who don’t know what they’re talking about, and I’m sorry.
But I have a question for you. In this “land of the free”…aren’t you free? What are their words doing to…
