There’s this shitty thing that happens when you learn about the reality of racism, sexism and misogyny. You start to hear it from the mouths of your parents, grandparents, friends and siblings and you can’t ignore it anymore but you’ll see how many of them will ignore you when you speak out about it.

he motherfucking dropped the truth.
white girls can’t wear bindis because in sixth grade one time i was dropped off at school by my aunt who was wearing a bindi at the time and some girl’s mom whispered to her friend how she would never let her daughter play with me because my family had probably been happy about 9/11 and then four years later that daughter showed up to school wearing a bindi as part of her “”“boho”“” look
Studies show that women apologize more than men, often for perfectly reasonable acts like, you know, taking up space.
Via @being_feminist on twitter
this is not via @being_feminist. this is via ME.
the “being feminist” facebook page has plagiarised this quote before. I wrote to them asking them to take it down; they refused until I threatened to write an article exposing them as thieves, not just of my content, but of other people’s. a month or so later, I saw them re-post the quote, AGAIN without permission or attribution.
now they’re posting this quote of mine on twitter - where the original received more than 1000 retweets. the quote, attributed to me, also garnered 150000 reblogs on tumblr. they can’t pretend they don’t know who said it because I TOLD THEM. TWICE. it’s bad enough when little twitter accounts run by individuals post the quote as though it was theirs, but when big accounts use my workto get reblogs, likes and faves without paying me or even attributing me, I get pretty damn pissed off. so please, give @being_feminist the publicity they so clearly crave, and let everyone know that they mine other creators for content so that they can get page traffic.
Black women are ALWAYS under scrutiny. Our image an bodies are forever being policed by EVERYONE. Nicki Minaj is just one example.
the same thing happens when old firm matches go on, no matter who wins domestic violence increases dramatically.
this makes me feel physically SICK.
the word ‘bisexuality’ is a taboo
it isn’t said on tv. orange is the new black, for example, features a bisexual protagonist who points out the biphobia at one point in assuming she can’t be attracted to multiple genders, but no one Ever says the word and…
Salute to the enduring spirit of the children of the slaves…
A lot of the men and women that had to endure this are still alive. Don’t let white people act like this is the distant past. It’s not.
This is my history.
I made a video about Lady GaGa and her cultural appropriation of the burqa. If you understand cultural appropriation then just skip to about 2:00.
I’m not gonna pretend that I’m the most educated person on social issues, and I am happy for people to correct me and disagree etc.
But yeah if you feel like watching a video of me ~~~~~trying~~~~~ to be intelligent HERE YOU GO.
This is the most awkward fucking video I have seen in my life.
Like yoooooooooooo, you think you got the charisma for a vlog bb?
Coz I don’t fucking think so.
I ignored you. Then you reblogged my post twice. Then you sent me an ask and I ignored that as well. Now you’re reblogging other posts.
I criticised a pop singer. Not you. And now you’re insulting me? Okay great.
