Midweek Update 6/5/2019: Images of Words

I keep saving various images to possibly use to illustrate a Friday Five post or a political commentary, then wind up using only a fraction of them. So, here are a few of those memes and graphics you may find amusing, enlightening, or thought-provoking:

Pre-Pride Month Reminder :  If you are at a Pride event and you see what looks like a m/f couple, and you feel the urge to complain about "straight people ruining Pride"  - Bi people belong at Pride - Trans people belong at Pride - Ace and Aro people belong at Pride

Bi, pan, tans, nonbinary, ace, and aro people (and allies!) all are welcome at Pride (click to embiggen)

“we produce enough food for 10 billion humans to live comfortably but capitalism throws almost half of it away for not being pretty enough, profitable enough, or simply because it rotted on the shelf. Scarcity, suffeering are manufactured in order to maintain profitability.”

“Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggests former President Ronald Reagan was a racsit and claims he 'pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans to screw over all working-class Americans.”  “That's unfair. He was also a homophobe who let thousands of Americans die of AIDS”

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. For more than 20 years I edited and published an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live near Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
