Hey, so remember how Israel always falls over itself reminding us how much it cares about the well-being of the LGBTQ community? How it’s the “only safe haven for queer people in the middle east”? How it benevolently cares for injured Palestinians even though we’re all undeserving savages”?

Well, in a statement released by IDF intel officers refusing to serve, it was revealed that the IDF and Israeli intelligence in general blackmail sick and queer Palestinians into becoming collaborators and informants.

This is part of the testimonies of these officers:

"If you’re homosexual and know someone who knows a wanted person – and we need to know about it – Israel will make your life miserable. If you need emergency medical treatment in Israel, the West Bank or abroad – we searched for you. The state of Israel will allow you to die before we let you leave for treatment without giving information on your wanted cousin. If you interest Unit 8200 as a technological unit, and don’t have anything to do with any hostile activity, you’re an objective."

This is standard operating procedure. This is nothing out of the ordinary, this is not a special case. This is the logic of Israel, this is the logic of a colonial state, one built on ethnic supremacy, built on genocide.

At this point, any person saying that the IDF is a moral army, or that Israel cares in the slightest about human rights, then they need to do a 5 second google search, because this information is everywhere.

To keep repeating this lie means you’re either incredibly ignorant/being misled in an age where information is at your fingertips, or you’re an imperialist bigot.

I want a book about a girl who falls in love with another girl and doesn’t have a crisis because she thought she was straight but because she knows what other people will think. I want her crush to have never kissed boys, and I want a film where she doesn’t kiss boys either. I want to read a story about a woman who is not “experimenting” or “confused”, and I want a movie where she doesn’t “try” men. I want to open the television and see a lesbian couple not consisting of two long-haired, young, white women who wear heels and make-up, one blonde, one brunette for diversity. I want a TV series where neither of them has a husband or a fiancé. I want to be able to google the author and not find out that she is now married to a man. I want to read a biography without learning about the man whom she had an affair with when she was young. I want stories about women who have never had boyfriends. I want a movie where she doesn’t “go back to boys”, or sleep with a man in an emotional turmoil, or die.

I want all of this, more of this, not because I would think some women are better than others, but because if I had wanted stories about heterosexuality, I would have picked another book. Another movie. Any movie.

Free textbooks master post.
UPDATED WITH A FEW NEW LINKS AND A REDDIT POST

Awhile back I ran through the tumblr tag looking for all the links for free textbooks. Here is my compiled list. Hopefully someone out there might find this list useful. Some of the links also provide free fiction books, and I think one of them isn’t free, but sell books at a cheaper price. Also, please don’t ask me how to use them, if you need an account, ect.  I’m just compiling a list. 

WARNING: I CANNOT VOUCH FOR ANY OF THESE WEBSITES SUCH AS THEM BEING A SCAM OR INFECTED OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT. USE AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION. (I am simply going off the goodwill of other tumblr users; and apologies in advance if there are repeats)

Hey. You guys should email ISNA people to remember Ferguson in the “Vigil for the Oppressed” on Sunday. It’s ridiculous that Muslims in America don’t stand up and show solidarity with Americans/Non-Muslims over injustice, but expect others to do the same when injustice occurs to Muslims worldwide.
