Joan Jett’s jacket. Notice the pins.

"keep abortion legal"

"If she says no, it’s rape"

But they aren’t. Joan Jett knew what was up.

Why can’t we take a minute and soak in her “bad reputation” and think about how in thirty years, abortion and rape culture STILL are huge issues.

Get turned into this?

This is truly heart breaking to those who know these men (they’re my Uncle’s best friends). No one has the right to STEAL private pictures, that are copyright protected by the photographer, and…

Yesterday, somewhere between 2000-5000 people marched in Wellington against the government’s plans to partially sell state assets. This followed a similar sized march in Auckland last weekend and a week-long hikoi starting in Cape Reinga. After last year’s record low voter turn out, it would…
