Young Dad Wins Back Custody of Child Adopted Without Consent
26-year-old Jeremiah Sampson waged a three-year court battle that forced him to drop out of college to pay for legal expenses in gaining custody of his child.
Sampson drove five hours to Rolla, Mo., once or twice a week for more than six months to challenge the adoption in court. The adoptive parents threw a towel over the baby’s head in court, refusing to let him look at his birth father.
Born and raised in Coweta, Oklahoma, Sampson had four older brothers, three sisters and a mother who worked two jobs to support them all. He didn’t meet his father until he was 13 and hasn’t seen him much since.
“I would never do that to my own flesh and blood,” Sampson said. “I would never walk away from my own child.”
Sampson is now suing the adoption agency for violating his parental rights by going ahead with the placement even after he objected.

Victim blaming 101: Everyone should live in fear from ever doing anything.
In the 1930s, men’s nipples were just as provocative, shameful and taboo as women’s are now, and men were protesting in much the same way. In 1930, four men went topless to Coney Island and were arrested. In 1935, a flash mob of topless men descended upon Atlantic City, 42 of whom were arrested. Men fought and they were heard, changing not only laws but social consciousness. And by 1936, men’s bare chests were accepted as the norm.
So why is it that 80 years later women can’t seem to achieve the same for their chests? Why can’t a mother proudly breastfeed her child in public without feeling sexualized? why is a 17-year-old girl being asked to leave her own prom because a group of fathers find her too provocative?
[…] I am not trying to argue for mandatory toplessness, or even bralessness. What I am arguing for is a woman’s right to choose how she represents her body — and to make that choice based on personal desire and not a fear of how people will react to her or how society will judge her. No woman should be made to feel ashamed of her body.
I feel that anyone who believes Romeo & Juliet is about some kind of Great and Timeless Love TM* needs to see this.
WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT THIS TODAY IN MY SHAKESPEARE CLASS.
If you go and actually read what Romeo says to Benvolio in the first scene, you will realize that he is only upset because HE WANTED ROSALINE’S BODY AND SHE SAID NO AND SO ROMEO WAS MOPING AND PITCHING A FIT ABOUT IT. Then, the second he lays eyes on Juliet, he’s basically saying
During the balcony scene, Romeo talks about how he scaled the wall of the garden to see Juliet. That is not romantic. That is disrespectful to her. This is a private area of the Capulet home, and Capulet built the wall around it to protect his daughter. This was a time when a woman’s virtue was the most important thing she owned. If Juliet was found with a man in this very private part of her home, everyone would think she was no longer a virgin, her reputation would be ruined, and it would be much harder, if not impossible, for her father to make a good marriage.
Speaking of good marriages, Count Paris is seen as the bad guy because he “comes between” Romeo and Juliet. Capulet had arranged for Paris to marry Juliet in 2 years time, when she would be 16, in a time when most women were already married and mothers by the time they were Juliet’s age at (almost but not quite) 14. Most fathers would have already had their daughters married by now, but he wants to wait two more years AND PARIS IS OKAY WITH THAT. Not only that, but Paris is young (her father could have had her married to a 60 year old man), titled (he’s a fucking Count), wealthy (again, he’s a count, which means Juliet will have financial stability), and, from what we see of him, he is a very good guy. Capulet could have done a LOT worse in choosing his son-in-law.
Finally, here’s something to consider: Juliet was 13, Romeo was 17. Their relationship lasted 3 days, defied their parents, and ended in the deaths of 6 people.
If I ever hear you say that Romeo and Juliet is the greatest love story ever told, I will bitch slap you.
That is all.
THANK YOU! SOMEBODY FINALLY PUT IT IN WORDS FOR ME

I love this post so much
my hand slipped
with their new hit song, “Randomly Searching 4 U”
I am re-reblogging just because that was so good
I think this one’s an Always Reblog, because the picture, the illustration, and the song title are just too damn perfect together.

”Blade was Marvel’s first film success, and set the stage for further comic film adaptations. ”
And yet we haven’t had a black lead hero movie since then. Funny how that happens, huh?
that’s so stupid, just coz he’s black you have to make a point of it… pretty sure Samuel jackson is black, and he’s in a few marvel successes… wanker.
Samuel L. Jackson is supporting cast, not the lead. If you’ve seen Blade and all of the Marvel movies that Sam Jackson popped up in, then you’d KNOW that it’s not the same.
I have to make a point of it when Kevin Feige continues to be wishy-washy regarding whether or not we’ll have a Black Panther movie, since there seems to be some “confusion” on Marvel’s part if anyone “wants” the movie (same goes for female lead Captain Marvel).
You think a black man in a supporting role, or appearing in the after credit scene, is the same thing as THE LEAD for his own franchise???
GTFOH with that bullshit.
But the thing is, yes, we do need to make a point of it because black characters and black actors are habitually given shit in media.
I look forward to there being positive representation of POC in Marvel movies, and green isn’t what I mean. If We get a Young Avengers (Kieran/McKelvie run especially) that’d be cool. Imagine Miss America all muscle and thighs kicking stars through the MCU? It’d be beautiful. Robbie Reyes and Kamala Khan in things meeting up and geeking out over each other,or at least Kamala geeking out over him as the new Ghost Rider. Real agency for the POC in X-Men because after Ororo what color is there in most of the X-Men movies?
One isn’t enough and supporting lead isn’t good enough either. Until Marvel comes out with Nick Fury and Shield: THe Movie, Fury exists as a way to link the movies and his existence is to support everyone else even when he’s being badass as a character and handling shit.
& somehow cops managed without a tank & tear gas. #ferguson #mikebrown #policebrutality #racism
What the FUCK
White people riot all the damn time. UNC wins? Riot. UNC loses? Riot. Penn State fires a guy for covering for a pedophile for years? RIOT RIOT RIOT!
But too many black people gather, even peacefully, and here comes the tear gas and rubber(coated) bullets.
The thing is:
White people riot and destroy property when they lose games, or, strangely, when they win games, at sporting events.
They riot and destroy property when child rapists and people who are complicit in covering up child rape are penalized and punished.
But if black people riot and destroy property in response to systemic injustice and State-sanctioned violence against black people, then the country, the media, and American citizens regard us as unthinking savages.
Surely, the unmitigated fuckery present in this paradigm is self-evident….
At the University of Tennessee, white people burned mattresses in the streets when Lane Kiffin left! :P
The UConn campus erupts into full-out riot, complete with car flipping and property destruction, whenever they win a national championship, yet people barely blink an eye.
