OH MY GOD, IM SO GLAD I FOUND THIS ON MY DASH.
I´VE BEEN LOOKING FOR IT FOR AGES.
Yeah, no. This is a fake. A quick search of Geoff’s name on the site pulls up nothing that actually involves him. And a search of “armed robbery” pulled up even less, at least in relation to these guys.
Don’t believe me?
The time stamp on this says “6 hours ago,” so we can’t get a date from there, but the OP posted this on April eleventh. Assuming they got this screen-grab and posted it on the same day, this article would’ve been posted on the eleventh. But as a quick look at the website proves there is no story like this for that day.
Then, from what we can see of the article, it is said that this robbery happened on the 25th of March. All things considered, let’s say that meant that OP took the screen-grab some time on, let’s say, the 26th. That being said, this article would probably be archived somewhere and easily accessible through a simple site search.
Let’s search Geoff’s name first.
Huh, nothing there. At least nothing pertaining to this supposed robbery.
Hmm, let’s try a search of "armed robbery."
Nothing there, either.
In conclusion, this is a lie, stop reblogging it.
As for the OP, I’ll assume you were also a victim of misinformation here and I’ll ask that you make sure a story is true before you post it next time. Thank you.
I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.
This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.
Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.
My dad actually almost got kicked out of a mall once for changing my brother in the womens room of a mall. The only reason they didn’t call the cops on him was because the ladies in the room supported him.
