What The Hell Is Wrong With You?

For Gamergate and the men violently hating on women.

For the dudes who boycotted Star Wars because it had no white male lead but featured a few people of color and cast a woman or three.

For the folks clamboring to eat brunch or drive on freeways when they have the privilege to experience ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter‬.

For all the folks who shushed Jennicet when she spoke up to President Obama on the subject of ‪#‎Not1More‬ and demanded an end to the detention of transgender Latinas.

For those that tried and convicted Trayvon for having a hoodie up, a bag of Skittles and a Lipton tea.

For the folks who are killing women by systematically rolling back women's healthcare as part of a plank to eradicate the rights of women.

For the people who whitesplain all over themselves, getting angry at any evidence of independent Black thought and resiliency, whether it be‪#‎whitefeminism‬ or ‪#‎whitetears‬ or ‪#‎BernieSoBlack‬.

For the folks that tell bisexuals their labels are irrelevant, despite the fact bi people die from higher rates of every health disparity including cancer, and yeah ‪#‎DavidBowie‬ was ‪#‎oneofus‬ and if you'd like to have more beings like him alive, you need to ‪#‎savethebisexuals‬.

For the lovers of racist writers like Lovecraft and Highsmith.

For Charlie Hebdo and it's mockery of the ongoing and quite current deaths of Syrian toddlers.

For the authorities that locked up the Lesvos lifeguards instead of letting them save Syrian toddlers from drowning last Friday.

For the LGBTQ advocates that would enjoy the freedom to marry while ignoring calls for a ‪#‎freepalestine‬ and the right to a Creating Change conference free of ‪#‎pinkwashing‬.

For the Sad Puppies.

For the Oregon "militia" and their missing snacks.

For all the folks who are voting Trump.

For all those who would trade one oppression for another.

On this Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I recommend the hashtag #wthiwwy for your use!

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

By thefayth, BiNet USA President
With additional edits/support from Juba Kalamka, BiNet USA VP

Bisexual communities have been notified of my intent to remove my networks, support and help from those who center white supremacy or practice trans exclusionary radical feminism. Simply put, I do not believe bisexual exclusionary communities (or beci's) to represent the bisexual community.

When I emailed, messaged and tweeted at "Jayne Shea" and messaged her last Tuesday, I did so because I'd seen Seattle continuing to thrive with TERF's, or people who exclude trans people.

It occurred to me, that the same group reported to BiNet USA for allowing cis only women was possibly closely associated with Jayne Shea; this has now been confirmed. And now the rest is history, Black-bisexual-intersex-trans history as I, thefayth, recently became more public in my transition from assumed cis female to known intersex trans multi-gender…

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag
(but people I knew said I did, so did "the news")
By the artist formerly known as Faith Cheltenham, and the activist formerly known as thefayth

With my stepping away from bisexual community; I am returning home to those who love me; not something always found in bisexual, or LGBTQIA communities. The true upheaval for me personally is most profound in that I turn away from the concept of giving, entirely. thefayth is no more as I must admit I have no faith in humans, if I ever did. Further, I decline to serve with my body, my mind or spirit to provide such faith to humans without benefit to me first and always.

My bigger shame? Direct donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to advocacy between 2004-2017 focused on bi communities worldwide, while also working for free at same time; I should have picked one or the other!

My shame is particular, in that I feel, I may have been treated better if I’d been giving only to peopl…

DEATH OF KHALIL LAWAL BY PHILLY COP JAMES POWELL 

PHOTO OF KHALIL FROM www.socialistalternativephl.org
On January 29th, 2018, after accidentally hitting a pedestrian, Khalil Lawal was approached by Philadelphia Police Officer James Powell—who was off duty at the time—and shot 15 times mere seconds after the encounter. James Powell shot Khalil first at point blank range and then several more times as Khalil was already laid on the ground.

Khalil was unarmed and had not been committing any crimes when Powell approached him from behind with his gun already in hand. Khalil was shot directly in his left eye, his temple, his neck, chest and legs but succumbed to his injuries almost 2 hours after the incident.

In April, the Lawal family discovered that the Philadelphia Police Dept. still had not taken a statement from Powell—about 3 months following the s…
