keep in mind many men don’t really like women, they like the high regard afforded them by other men when seen with a certain kind of woman. they like the confirmations of their masculinity and sexual prowess when engaging physically with a woman, and they like the ego boost of being attractive to many women. but they do. not. like. women.

Can I reblog this a million times?

of course. Do mind the post limit though.

Fair point. I’ll never reach a million.

The fact that Coachella would choose ‘native aesthetics’ to co-opt and reproduce for the amusement of a largely white audience right on the doorstep of the Cabazon Indian Reservation just shows how little they consider NDN’s anything more than fiction or exotic history for the consumption of 20-something hipsters.

It’s getting down to the wire, and you’re probably going to get tired of seeing this post but we need the starter money to help get this business going! Please if you can donate to our IndieGogo campaign so @everythingrhymeswithalcohol and I can start a plus size clothing store. We want to be able to give plus size women an option in clothing that isn’t as expensive as Torrid or Lane Bryant. Please check out the campaign and throw a few dollars our way!

"

You find yourself in a group of people standing next to a cliff.

Suddenly, someone pushes another person, sending them over the edge. Thankfully, the victim is able to hold on to the edge rather than fall to their death, but nobody makes a move to help them or stop the perpetrator. Everyone, including yourself, simply stands there watching.

Angry that they’ve been pushed, angry that nobody is helping them as they struggle not to fall, the victim screams, ‘Is anybody going to fucking help me??’

That gets everyone’s attention. ‘Why are you mad at me?’ one person asks. ‘I didn’t push you.’

'Nobody is going to want to help you with an attitude like that.'

'You're just as bad as him.'

Nobody makes a move to help.

The victim screams in frustration, their fingers slipping. ‘You’ve got to be fucking joking!’ they shout as they lose their grip.

'You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.' You say as you walk away.

Welcome to the anti-sj/’real justice’ movement.

SCA-5 

I was walking for Carol Kim today in PQ (Rancho Penasquitos) and I knocked on a late-30’s Chinese woman’s door and at first I was talking about Carol Kim and all the amazing things she’s done in the community but she cut me off and said “I will not vote for another Democrat, if they keep supporting SCA-5” and of course knowing me, I tried my best to remain civil and politely listen but I HAD to say something. She told me her migration story of coming to the U.S. with only $100 in her back pocket and not having anyone look like her on the East Coast and having to work really hard to make it and I respected her for sharing her struggle. It was when she told me that “I don’t agree with giving preference to race because they won’t have the needed skills that’s required to be a qualified professional in the future,” which set me off. So basically students of color who have been historically disenfranchised in the public education system facing inadequate resources at schools, not provided the access to general ed requirements to qualify for a UC/CSU or the privilege and access needed to pass these racist SATs, that despite all of this thats failing our students and the growing racial and socio-economic gap of students unable to access higher education, that its just cus someone who looks like me “doesn’t deserve a pass because they are bound to fail in the future because of preferential treatment because they don’t have to work as hard,” when our students are facing barriers after barriers just to graduate. After so much debate and letting her know that SCA-5 does not prioritize only race but only includes it as one of the many factors in determining admissions, she would not give in. There wasn’t anything I could say or do to change her mind and I acknowledged that. It honestly broke my heart because I could care less about racist white people entrenched in their own privilege but it is even more heartbreaking for me to come across another person of color who is soooooo heavily settled in principles of white supremacy even at the cost of denying opportunities for students of color who arent given the the necessary tools to succeed in this country. it really saddens me that this country systematically divides communities of color for the sake of preserving opportunities for those who have been guaranteed measures of success since its founding. i’m at a loss for words at how angry this made me feel at the end of the day…

dating me means dating my anxiety and my random spouts of depression it means dating my panic attacks at 11pm or 2 am or 5am or anytime of the day for that matter it means dating my mood swings where i get really upset over everything about me and all my insecurities and how i’m not good enough because i’m never good enough

"In California of all places, prison doctors have sterilized over 150 women. Why? They don’t want to have to provide welfare funding for any children they may have in the future."

"When unions talk about inequality we have to name the implications that has for people of color and the intentionality behind that,” she says. “When [this country] thinks of a public worker, for example, they think of a lazy black woman in a post office. They’re saying these workers don’t deserve protections or higher pay because they have racist, sexist notions of who these workers are."
