@TheTinaVasquez@twitter.com The name change alone is a clear signal of how it shifted.
INS: Immigration and Naturalization Service. The name evokes providing a safe path to citizenship.
ICE: Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The name is intentionally aggressive and adversarial.
We saw all this coming.
Of course, all Slack discussions of passphrases eventually devolve to http://xkcd.com/936.
UK ambassador: Trump "radiates insecurity."
Trump: We won't deal with that ambassador, <insert insecure put-down here>.
...He's turning into a deterministic algorithm.
Once again, someone who hasn't actually fought on the front lines misinterprets the whole point of #Pride.
It's a celebration of diversity.
It's bringing together those who are "different."
It's a rebellion against oppression. In ALL forms — your oppressiveness included, dear.
Once again I’d like to assert that I am quite fine with being called a “kink shamer”.
This image of “Pups” from London Pride shows how far Pride has strayed from commemorating our struggle for gay & lesbian rights & celebrating our freedom. What an embarrassment.
And I'm not innocent of that. When I first saw the reimagining of the #Pride flag with the brown and black stripes added, I felt like it wasn't necessary, because the whole point of the rainbow was to be all-encompassing.
I was wrong. I embrace the change now. /5
