There are so many things wrong with the U.S.’s gun laws, but one of the biggest things wrong with them is the same thing that’s wrong with all of our laws. The same thing that’s wrong with just about every public institution: racism. Laws are all very well and good when they are applied equally to everyone. In the case of Siwatu-Salama Ra, a prominent environmental activist in Michigan, that is not happening. As reported by Vox, Ra experienced an event last summer that changed her life forever.

Then she grasped for hope: Maybe she would make it to 28 weeks, a far cry from a full-term, 40-week pregnancy but far enough along for the baby to be delivered and then operated on after birth.That hope didn't last long.The first sign that something might be wrong had come at 21 weeks, when a routine ultrasound flagged a small amount of fluid around the baby's heart.

A cinema is giving out cleaning products to women at a Wonder Woman screening. By Hanna Flint Friday, June 16, 2017 A Wonder Woman screening gave female guests sexist goodie bags [Warner Bros] The film celebrates women's strength and independence with Diana of Themyscira leading the fight against evil and fascism during World War I. She is part of the Amazonian tribe of warrior women, created by the gods to keep men in check, so the idea to give women attending a screening of goodi bags filled with sponges, diet pill pamphlets and chocolate seems pretty sexist. Audiences members posted pictures of the products on Twitter and their disdain. One person tweeted: “Exclusive goodie bag for ladies at the movies?! Sponge, brush and scourer… Perfect tools for a Wonder Woman?” Audience members posted … [Read more...] about Wonder Woman screening gave out “sexist” goodie bags
