MINORITY PRIVILEGE: UNPACKING THE NEW INVISIBLE KNAPSACK

thetruthaboutracialprivilege:

(…blah blah bullshit bullshit bullshit)


YOU CAN NOT ACHIEVE EQUALITY THROUGH PRIVILEGE, REPARATIONS AND BENEFIT FOR ANY RACE OR GENDER. IF YOU WANT EQUALITY, THEN ACT AS AN EQUAL, ANY USAGE OR SEEKING OF THE FORMER ENFORCE RACIAL SUPERIORITY OR ACCEPTANCE OF INFERIORITY.

A federal appeals court in Boston found on Thursday that a U.S. law defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman unconstitutionally denies federal benefits to lawfully married same-sex couples in a ruling that promises to push the issue of gay marriage to the U.S. Supreme Court. 
The ruling on the 1996 law, the Defense of Marriage Act, marked a victory for gay rights groups and U.S. President Barack Obama, whose administration announced last year it considered the law unconstitutional and would no longer defend it.

Feminist marriage is a three-way contract between two women and government. Most women will have children, and few women can afford or will go to the extreme of using artificial insemination to achieve pregnancy. Government is the automatic third party collecting “child support” entitlements for children born in these marriages.

Children will be born of extramarital affairs backed by welfare guarantees and child support entitlements. Feminist marriages are automatically entitled with many tax-free, governmental income sources for having children.

Feminist marriage is a marriage between any two women and the welfare state. It constitutes a powerful feminist takeover of marriage by government, and places the NOW in the position of dictating government policy as a matter of “feminist Constitutional rights.”

Feminist marriage will be far more attractive to women than heterosexual marriage. Sexual orientation does not matter when two women marry and become “married room-mates.” They can still have as many boyfriends as they want and capture the richest ones for baby-daddies by “forgetting” to use their invisible forms of birth control. On average, a feminist marriage will have at least four income sources, two of them tax-free, plus backup welfare entitlements.

Feminist marriage is government-sponsored serial polyandry, uniquely enriched by one or more substantial income sources not available to the other two planned subordinate classes of marriage.

I don’t think I ever got this memo, you guys. I can’t believe you would plan something like this without telling me.

Mexico City mulls 2-year marriage

fuckyeahmarxismleninism:

Mexico City lawmakers want to help newlyweds avoid the hassle of divorce by giving them an easy exit strategy: temporary marriage licenses. Leftists in the city’s assembly — who have already riled conservatives by legalizing gay marriage — proposed a reform to the civil code this week that would allow couples to decide on the length of their commitment, opting out of a lifetime.

The minimum marriage contract would be for two years and could be renewed if the couple stays happy. The contracts would include provisions on how children and property would be handled if the couple splits.

“The proposal is, when the two-year period is up, if the relationship is not stable or harmonious, the contract simply ends,” said Leonel Luna, the Mexico City assemblyman who co-authored the bill. “You wouldn’t have to go through the tortuous process of divorce,” said Luna, from the leftist Party of the Democratic Revolution, which has the most seats in the 66-member chamber.

Luna says the proposed law is gaining support and he expects a vote by the end of this year. Around half of Mexico City marriages end in divorce, usually in the first two years.

Sen. Al Franken rips apart the testimony of a Focus on the Family lackey. This is truly a thing of beauty. Focus on your own damn family, asshat.

This pretty much sums up my reaction here:

“Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet  sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by  his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-  American baby born after the election of the USA’s first  African-American President.”

I am going to keep reblogging this repugnant shit every time it comes across my dash because it is so fucking abhorrent and I don’t want anyone to forget this.  So you might as well add Michele Bachmann, slavery, and WHAT THE EVER-LOVING FUCK!?? to your tumblrsavior until this heffa drops out of the race.
