Jury nullification. Pass it on.
Jury nullification is so fucking important.
This is something that more people should be aware of, if only because (in many states, at least) defense attorneys are actually prohibited from mentioning it to jurors. The law allows a jury to return a “not guilty” verdict contrary to the facts of the case, but not for the defense to inform them of that power or to argue for its application in the current trial.
I didn’t know about this. Wow.
This is SUPER IMPORTANT and also a good reason to show up for jury duty. You know all those laws you think are stupid? This is your chance to maybe do something about it.
Semmes, Alabama is a town of some 3,000 mostly white and conservative people located just outside of Mobile, Alabama. The town puts on an annual Christmas parade that is organized by a group called Friends of Semmes, and this year, the group unwittingly invited some guests that they apparently did not vet so well, considering the audience that the guests would be performing for.
Those guests were none other than the Prancing Elites, a group of five young black men from Mobile who happen to be gay. They have been around since 2006 and were formed in part because males were not allowed to audition for the dance teams in their schools. Their style of dance is called “j-setting”, a form of cheerleader style hip hop. It also happens to be, according to the Prancing Elites Kickstarter page, very popular in southern black gay nightclubs.
So with all of this in mind, you can imagine that when the Prancing Elites showed up for the Semmes, Alabama Christmas parade to perform, dressed in skimpy Santa Claus outfits and wearing makeup, that their act was going to go over like a lead balloon.
Prancing Elites leader Kentrell Collins said: “We are no different than any team out there dancing. We want people to stop looking at gender and focus on the talent,” he said. “It’s OK for a woman to put on tights and play football but when a man wants to put on leotard and tights, it’s a problem.”
Viva Prancing Elites and their courage to perform in defiance of bigotry!
these group members are so elegant, in handling the pure hatred coming toward them. definitely watch the video of their dancing and their interview, linked in the title.
dance on *s
Can you imagine being a tiny queerby and realize who was dancing down your street at the annual christmas parade?
Can you imagine for the first time in your life seeing people who were THEMSELVES dancing down the street at you?
Can you imagine how that would feel, knowing for the first time, you weren’t alone?
Subtext from ignorant white folk: “I had to talk to my shitty kid!”
I’m in mutuals with a lot of people I’ve never spoken to and if that’s you then I just want you to know that I’ve definitely thought about talking to you at one point and then got scared
why does kotaku let people who don’t play games write articles about playing games
In light of the 50 Shades of Grey trailer coming out today, quick reminder that that book is about an abusive and controlling relationship, not BDSM.
Fanfiction (published or not) is important for women of all ages to explore gender roles and sexuality in a way that is less stigmatized and more accessible.
But do not do the BDSM community a disservice by calling the relationship described in the book a BDSM experience.
