Had to google A.C.A.B.
I figured not everyone would know what it stands for, but now don’t you just wanna spray paint it on the police station? Or a small A.C.A.B. tattoo on one of your fingers? Or a A.C.A.B. patch on your jean jacket?!
Wow actually no.
i want one on my forehead tbh but i think i’ll go for a dainty one behind my ear or on my middle finger ??
I know what it means but it always takes me 5 minutes to sort it out because my brain interprets it as “assigned cop at birth”. Always. Like no brain, that’s not it.
A.C.A.B. is an anti-police acronym meaning “All Coppers Are Bastards”.
When I witness police harassment I make an ACAB patch using a cross stitch alphabet where each letter is made out of cats.
I made a lot last year and expect to do the same again this year.
It also stands for All Cats Are Beautiful.
Thank you, I feel so seen!
The pizza slap heard ’round the world.
man i appreciate the gesture for sure, but the thought of it still just makes me so sad. poor pizza.
it kinda has me thinking about the whale in hitchhiker’s guide: https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/198068-another-thing-that-got-forgotten-was-the-fact-that-against
From this day forward: Trump supporters are barred from consuming pizza, tacos, sushi, and all other foods created by American immigrants.
So I guess that like limits them to the 3 sisters, wild rice, maple products, berries, fish and game products
Maybe potatoes, but I dunno know if the pre European contact peoples of what is now designated the United States cultivated potatoes. It’s not like I’m a scholar of Pre-Colombian foods of the America or like traveling backwards in time is even plausible. Gawd.
But yes ban Drumpfters from the glory of pizza and tomato based sauces.
Most especially ban them from the glory of shawarma and gyro.
No MENA foods for them.
Actually they should be restricted to only the foods of their ancestors. Mushy peas and blood pudding coming up!
Old World only eh? Well then no chance of potatoes for them.
None at all.
No chocolate either!
Translated: Trump supporters are now barred from obtaining food anywhere except directly from Native populations. Yassssssss!
That is also perhaps where all their linens should be obtained as well.
love this so much.
Kissing booth for charity at queer parties is genius.
“I like research, reading graphs, and compiling data” I FEEL SO SEEN
Yeah it me.
I have the same conflict Taylor! Though I’m more of a resistance through creativity and administration person rather than through graphs and research :P
THANK YOU this made me feel so much better! I get horribly overwhelmed around large crowds and all that, but incidentally I am doing almost exactly this and making a website index of important resources around my city/campus (or, trying. research I can do, fighting with wordpress themes is not so easy)
This is wonderful! I attended a counter-protest at Planned Parenthood today (over 250 people showed up, and in a very conservative town/state! only about 10 for the true “protest”) and there was a bake sale component. So many delicious goodies with the money going toward a great cause! I like protests, personally, because it’s easy to forget how many like-minded people there are in my city & protests bring lots of them together all to one place. I totally get that some people aren’t down with them, though, and think it’s great to remind people that there are COUNTLESS ways to become involved with the resistance!
I love this so much ❤️❤️❤️
This is wonderful! <3
i love EVERYTHING about this comic archie!!! AHH
this made me cry because protests make me so anxious, and guilty for not being there. thank you!
this is the best!!!
