Anonymous said: Can I get a "fuck you" for all the white people who talk about how their European ancestors came here "legally" but conveniently forget that until 1965 it was pretty much only Europeans who could come here legally?

Seriously, why are racists so fucking proud of following the racist-ass immigration laws of this racist-ass country.

Even then, many, many white immigrants from Europe that came into the United States in the 19th century did so under no legal framework whatsoever. 

Just an example: During and directly after the Great Hunger, most Irish people couldn’t afford passage on safer American vessels due to price increases that followed the Passenger Act of 1847, so they opted for cheaper (and more dangerous) British vessels that went to what is today Canada. Thousands crossed the land border into the United States afterwards, many more simply went over the ocean in unlicensed coffin ships and landed on the coast.

I’m not trying to belittle the people that made that journey—after all, Catholic Europeans fleeing fucked-up situations in the late 19th-century are most of my ancestors. But a great number of those people that we now glorify as the “good immigrants” were what we would today consider undocumented, simply because visas and passports didn’t even fucking exist back then.

The average prison sentence of men who kill their women partners is 2 to 6 years. Women who kill their male partners are sentenced on average to 15 years. This is despite the fact that 86% of female offenders kill in self-defense, while males are most likely to kill out of possessiveness (82%), abuse (75%) and during arguments (63%). Women are eight times more likely than men to be killed by an intimate partner.

The concept is bizarre, combining a building material from the time of Julius Caesar with a Jetsons aesthetic, but the approach has already worked before.

This newly-revived technique could provide low-cost housing for refugees and displaced people, and generally provide architects with a cost-effective way to explore convex construction.
