I have a quick question and I certainly don't want it to be taken the wrong way, I'm just curious. Why is this for trans women only? Why does it matter who they are? Are you saying that trans people have a harder time looking for a place to stay than POC? I'm a little upset that this is specifically for trams women, because there could easily be the same amount of straight women or gay men without homes, so I think it's a little unnecessary to point out that they are transgendered. Clear it up?

transhousingnetwork:

this is for trans people in general, not just trans women. trans homelessness is epidemic compared to the homelessness of persons who are not trans. this page is a stopgap resource for those persons, because we are often excluded from or made unsafe in the conventional shelter system (in part because of sex/gender segregation of those facilities)

Omg why doesn’t Pizza Hut sell hamburgers?

Occupy abolishes $4 million in other people’s student loan debt | CNN
After forgiving millions of dollars in medical debt, Occupy Wall Street is tackling a new beast: student loans.
Marking the third anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement, the group’s Strike Debt initiative announced Wednesday it has abolished $3.8 million worth of private student loan debt since January. It said it has been buying the debts for pennies on the dollar from debt collectors, and then simply forgiving that money rather than trying to collect it.
In total, the group spent a little more than $100,000 to purchase the $3.8 million in debt.
While the group is unable to purchase the majority of the country’s $1.2 trillion in outstanding student loan debt because it is backed by the federal government, private student debt is fair game.
This debt Occupy bought belonged to 2,700 people who had taken out private student loans to attend Everest College, which is run byCorinthian Colleges. Occupy zeroed in on Everest because Corinthian Colleges is one of the country’s largest for-profit education companies and has been in serious legal hot water lately.
Following a number of federal investigations, the college told investors this summer that it plans to sell or close its 107 campuses due to financial problems — potentially leaving its 74,000 students in a lurch.

Only now that the NFL is losing money are dudes who play football quaking in their cleats like, “holy shit there could be negative repercussions in my life if I abuse others?”
That’s all you need to know about how useless our justice system is for victims of abuse.
