BAMF of the day: Hedy Epstein

ttssgg:

Those who themselves have been oppressed often make the best allies because they know what it is to be dehumanized.

This lovely lady is Hedy Epstein, a 90 year-old woman of German Jewish descent, who survived the Holocaust as part of the Kindertransport. Following WWII and the loss of most of her family, she worked for the US government as part of the US Civil Censorship Division, as well as at the Nuremberg Medical Trials. Since then, Hedy has been a champion for human rights, campaigning for such causes as fair housing, reproductive rights, immigration, the anti-war movement, and most especially occupied Palestine. She has worked tirelessly on behalf of oppressed and marginalized people all over the world. And today, she was arrested while protesting the murder of Mike Brown in Ferguson, MO.

Rock on Hedy.

What would Jesus do?

THIS.

"Many on the Christian Right are fond of posing the question WWJD?— What would Jesus do? I’d like to remind them what Jesus DID do: He cared for the poor. He did not condemn the woman caught in adultery. He prayed alone.
He commanded us to love our enemies. He preached peace. He ate, drank, and lived with ‘tax collectors and sinners’ — the lowlifes and outcasts of his day, while reserving his condemnation for the religious leaders who, from a place of privilege, imposed their legalism and literalism on the people they were responsible for leading.
He told his disciples not to oppose the healing work of those outside the ranks of his followers. And again and again he reminded us to care for the poor. (That moral issue gets more air time than any other in the gospels: 1 verse in 9.)
Whatever Jesus would do, given what he did do, and has promised he will do, I don’t think it looks much like what the insulated, self-congratulatory Fox News fans on the ‘Christian Right’ are doing.” — Marilyn Chandler McEntyre, PhD.

"It’s like presenting a dog with a sirloin steak and expecting him not to eat it."

Well.

I presented my two dogs with an actual sirloin steak, then told them no.

Woofles didn’t even approach it when I set it down, as I hadn’t told him it was okay to do so.
Quinn approached it, completely ready to take it from the plate (as her manners are not yet as good as Woofles’ manners), was told no, and immediately backed off.

When Woofles heard the no, he turned away as well because he knew that steak was not for him to eat.

Notice how they didn’t ‘argue’, didn’t take it anyway, didn’t get aggressive, didn’t beg, or didn’t try to somehow persuade me that they should be able to have it.

They were told no, they backed off.

So, essentially, if you use that analogy to excuse rape, you’re saying you have less self control and fewer basic social manners than my two dogs.

That also probably means you should be neutered and kept on a leash.
