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.

Get this! A show about two “awkward” cis white heterosexual girls pretending to be freaky lesbians so they can be popular! Because being out in high school makes you SO cool ! The get invited to all the parties now that they are lesbians! The show is a comedy too, you can laugh at many of the jokes ranging from “Does that mean I’m the butch ?” ー because you know you need one girl and one boy in ever lesbian relationship, to “I’ve need some lesbian energy in my life” ー because lesbians are fun objects, like scented candles ! The show is very quirky and I bet EVERY ally in town will be tuning to see it ! Who do you ship?
During a second playthrough on the same save file, a secret dungeon shows up when you approach the end of the game; it’s a staircase the leads down in the beginning section of the Guertena Gallery!
If you have Garry with you during the time, they’ll have a variety of new things to say and will help you get the names of new paintings! You could do the dungeon without Garry of course, but it loses a fair bit of charm without them!
That screenshot in particular is from the turquoise section of the Dungeon, with the cactus flower maze and the Mayhem of Color painting!

destroy the idea that transtrending is a thing that actually exists and is not made up by truscum in order to limit trans-ness to what only they deem acceptable
it is just the fucking same as transphobia from cis people or anyone else for that matter, it is transphobia, and I will not stand for it

In California, prison doctors have sterilized at least 148 women, mainly Mexicans, from 2006 to 2010. Why? They don’t want to have to provide welfare funding for any children they may have in the future and to eliminate ‘defectives’ from the gene pool.
The sterilization procedures cost California taxpayers $147,460 between 1997 and 2010. The doctors at the prison argue it is money well-spent.
Dr. James Heinrich, an OB-GYN at Valley State Prison for Women, said, “Over a 10-year period, that isn’t a huge amount of money compared to what you save in welfare paying for these unwanted children – as they procreated more.”
In 1909, California passed the country’s third sterilization law, authorizing reproductive surgeries of patients committed to state institutions for the “feebleminded” and “insane” that were deemed suffering from a “mental disease which may have been inherited and is likely to be transmitted to descendants.” Based on this eugenic logic, 20,000 patients in more than ten institutions were sterilized in California from 1909 to 1979. Worried about charges of “cruel and unusual punishment,” legislators attached significant provisions to sterilization in state prisons. Despite these restrictions, about 600 men received vasectomies at San Quentin in the 1930s when the superintendent flaunted the law.
Moreover, there was a discernible racial bias in the state’s sterilization and eugenics programs. Preliminary research on a subset of 15,000 sterilization orders in institutions (conducted by Stern and Natalie Lira) suggests that Spanish-surnamed patients, predominantly of Mexican origin, were sterilized at rates ranging from 20 to 30 percent from 1922 to 1952, far surpassing their proportion of the general population.
In her recent book, Miroslava Chávez-García shows, through exhaustively researched stories of youth of color who were institutionalized in state reformatories, and sometimes subsequently sterilized, how eugenic racism harmed California’s youngest generation in patterns all too reminiscent of detention and incarceration today.
California was the most zealous sterilizer, carrying out one-third of the approximately 60,000 operations performed in the 32 states that passed eugenic sterilization laws from 1907 to 1937.
Although such procedures may seem harsh, they are not illegal. The Supreme Court ruled in 1927 that women can be forcibly sterilized in jail in Buck vs Bell. Writing for the majority, Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. said, “Three generations of imbeciles are enough.”
aaaand grandma is now complaining about me getting grapes. the grapes that were from DAD’S foodstamps, that HE said i could get, and wasn’t AT ALL a part of HER money
like “oh they don’t go in fruit salads” and “well i have to spend money on your iphone that you broke.” like shut the fuck up i bought them for snacking on, not for your god damn fruit salad that i didn’t even know or care about you wanting. AND THAT FUCKING IPHONE WAS NOT AT ALL GOD DAMN RELATED TO GRAPES

Not gonna lie, the best for your grandma would be to tumble down a flight of stairs *shrugs*
Sadly we don’t really have stairs.
That and even though she’s utterly vile trash, I’m the kind of weak-ass who still feels bad just thinking about it cause shit she’s still family. Wanky garbage family, but family none-the-less.
rottenmeats replied to your post “wow i was watching that video of how a couple of kids god racial…”
when they pull this shit then people have free go to steal shit and they fuckin do. like other ppl also notice the obvious employee following black kids around.
oh but they just don’t know the full story right. or the manager just has the right to constantly follow some kids just cause they’re black

WTF! At least they got him
We live in a post-racial society though.
Aderonke’s family was killed and she was arrested, tortured, and sentenced to death in Nigeria – because she’s a lesbian. She fled to safety in the UK.
Now, they’re trying to send her back into danger. Aderonke, like dozens of other LGBT asylum-seekers, is stuck in a process that the UK government has already admitted to humiliating and abusing them. It doesn’t work or protect anyone.
But, if thousands of us speak out right now, we could get the Home Office to take the next step and halt the deportations. Will you sign the petition to Home Office Secretary Theresa May now?
Please sign the petition to stop her deportation! 70,792 people have already signed this petition. We’re almost at the goal of 75,000 signatures.
(ETA: Seems you can only sign from the UK; definitely share if you have followers there!)
wow i was watching that video of how a couple of kids god racial profiled on
grandma noticed and said “the manager had a right” and “it clearly wasn’t about race” and “you just don’t know the full story.”
then when I called her out on her racist bullshit she once again pulled that “i have a right to say that” crap
haha guess who told her they also had a right to call her out on her racist shit
