Everyone knows that today is Mother’s Day so here’s a quick reminder. Please be careful who you say “Happy Mother’s Day” to. I was just at cvs and a woman was at the pharmacy and told the pharmacist as she was leaving “thank you so much, happy Mother’s Day” the pharmacist physically flinched and looked like she was about to cry. Please be mindful that today might be a huge trigger for some and may be a day that they have been dreading.
as a bi/queer iranian-american, i am just horrified and disgusted beyond words. there needs to be some serious systemic change in the islamic republic because this is not what islam stands for. stop misappropriating religion to justify the homophobia in iranian policy. and while we're at it, stop using the existence of iranian trans women as a supposed way to "cure homosexuality." do not reblog this post. racists and islamophobes will be blocked on sight. islam does not excuse murder, and this murder does not justify your bigotry toward iranians.
Maybe Martin would have been anything but the most boring character of all time to the point he brought down the entire podcast with him if he had grown a spine and become an avatar of the web to keep things interesting!
