A fear of taco trucks is a fear of Mexican women

Just a few miles from where the final Presidential Debate was hosted last night, Nevada’s Culinary Workers Union built a “wall of taco trucks” in front of the Trump International Las Vegas hotel. Along the “wall,” mostly Latinx and female workers and community members rallied against Trump’s xenophobia and his refusal to bargain with workers who won a union election at his hotel.

TRUMPTAPE

Trump is a sexual predator. I know it, you know it, we all know it.

Trigger Warning: sexual assault and harassment

Last week the Washington Post released a recording of Donald Trump telling Billy Bush that because of his fame, he could get away with doing anything to women including “grabbing them by the pussy” – otherwise known as assault.

New Favorite Tumblr: Beyoncé Voters

Last week, Fox News host Jesse Watters accused Hillary Clinton of courting the “single ladies vote” with her response to the Hobby Lobby decision. According to Watters, these women–who make up a quarter of the electorate and broke for Obama by 76 percent last election–“depend on government because they’re not depending on their husbands. They need contraception, health care, and they love to talk about equal pay.”

Watters coined the term “Beyoncé voters” to refer to this birth control-using, equal pay-loving single lady voting bloc, and so of course a perfect Tumblr was born. I can’t wait to hear Watters’ response when us Beyoncé voters deliver another election. Until then, check out more images ...
