No, no and no. REBLOG this please, this shouldn’t be allowed and we need to spread the word to everybody about this injustice!

The actual news article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2726219/Yasmin-Thomas-victim-disgusted-walked-free.html

I’m a feminist, and I agree that this is not right. Yasmin Thomas should receive more time for her actions. I really just want to punch that smug grin off her face!

This might be an issue of classism, though. It appears as if she’s loaded with money, and might be using her wealth in order to get away with her abusive behaviour.

Anyway, here’s to hoping that Ronnie Lee gets better soon.

Part of being a Feminist is agreeing that it’s unfair for a woman to attack a man and have it be okay. Men are allowed to be victims of assault by women. I loathe when people say “oh, you’re a feminist? So you think I can punch a woman?” No, I don’t think anyone should punch anyone obviously. *gets off soapbox*

I agree with the above posters

can we talk about the fact that this is her 18th conviction of assault and she still hasn’t done time what the fuck

How is she not locked up? What in the hell?

we know why she isn’t locked up

why hasnt she been knocked out yet

She’s white. I said it.

Lock her ass up already, wdf

Pennsylvania Judge Sentenced For 28 Years For Selling Kids to the Prison System
Mark Ciavarella Jr, a 61-year old former judge in Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison for literally selling young juveniles for cash. He was convicted of accepting money in exchange for incarcerating thousands of adults and children into a prison facility owned by a developer who was paying him under the table. The kickbacks amounted to more than $1 million.The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has overturned some 4,000 convictions issued by him between 2003 and 2008, claiming he violated the constitutional rights of the juveniles – including the right to legal counsel and the right to intelligently enter a plea. Some of the juveniles he sentenced were as young as 10-years old.Ciavarella was convicted of 12 counts, including racketeering, money laundering, mail fraud and tax evasion. He was also ordered to repay $1.2 million in restitution.His “kids for cash” program has revealed that corruption is indeed within the prison system, mostly driven by the growth in private prisons seeking profits by any means necessary.

Why might this not be a HUGE national story and his name not household? I’ll give you one guess what color those kids were.

Racism is institutionalized & systemic. This is what black people face, this is the reality.  




This is just like that SVU episode.

1. Expect her to do her own thing often and without letting you know, at least at first. It’s not that you don’t matter; it’s just that she’s learned to love doing what she wants, when she wants, and without asking permission or informing anyone.

2. She’ll probably want to take things slowly…
