U.S. Democrats plan to give Israel an addition $225 million for military spending. The same bill also cuts $1 billion of emergency funds meant to deal with the 50,000 undocumented child migrants held in crowded and unsanitary border facilities.
Israel already received $504 million for the joint U.S.-Israel Missle Defense Program for the Fiscal Year of 2014. That is not including the $3.1 Billion the Obama Administration spent on Foreign Military Financing (FMF) for Israel for the Fiscal Year 2014.

The Diversity Gap in the highest grossing science fiction and fantasy films. Sad, right? You can see the full study here.
I highly recommend reading the entire article.
from the infographic:
Among the top 100 domestic grossing films:
• only 8% of films star a protagonist of color
• of the 8 protagonists of color, all are men; 6 are played by Will Smith and 1 is a cartoon character (Aladdin)
• 0% of protagonists are women of color
• 0% of protagonists are LGBTQ
• 1% of protagonists are people with a disability
"six are played by will smith" -_-

I want you to know that even if
You are non binary or your partner is non binary, your bisexuality is valid. Even/especially if you and your partner actually are into being and having “a bit of both”.
Even if you are married to the first person you’ve been with and are monogamous, your bisexuality is valid.
Even if you feel weird and want to make a point to your parents who always assume you’re straight no matter what, but actually you do kind of lean that way, and your queer relationships have been confined to a few crushes or kisses or that one relationship, but you hate people assuming, your bisexuality is valid.
Even if you are a living “stereotype” who keeps multiple partners of different genders and prefers that, your bisexuality is valid.
Even if you’ve never been kissed.
Those who “side eye” you for “wanting to claim an [x] identity while enjoying [y] privledge!” doth protest too much. You know who you are and have NOTHING to prove.
