u feel that way sometimes wondering: as a nine year old sister with burned out hair oddly smiles at you and sweetly calls you brother u feel that way sometimes wondering: as a black woman & her 6 children are burned out of their apartment with no place to go & a nappy-headed nigger comes running thru our neighborhood with a match in his hand cryin revolution u feel that way sometimes...
Chile Bye: People have also yet to explain why... →
lebanesepoppyseed: that is a very fucking important point that people have to fucking explain even if Trayvon was the hoodiest rattiest ratchet ghetto nigga, why the fucking hell is that wrong? Why does that implicate guilt, deserve scorn, hatred? Why does it ask for genocide? Aside… The blackness not equalling innocence part reminds me of the reactions to Rue/Amandla of the Hunger...
descroissants asked: your post for trayvon's laws has inspired me, and so i will be using the idea as a sign for the march taking place in sanford today. hope that's alright
ataraxyn asked: I just wanted to give a little background about the Xctasy Garcia case as someone who is from the city it took place. I would first like to mention that she did not die. At the hands of her mothers boyfriend when she was about four he held a bleach-soaked rag over her eyes, broke her arm, and burned her with cigarettes. Also, I don't think she is black, I think she's Puerto Rican. Either...
After seeing the Mother Jones posting that links to Glen Beck calling him “the aggressor” (among other things I can’t bare to type right now) I had this thought… If Trayvon were a little white girl, we’d have Trayvon’s Law by now. By now. Three weeks later. True story. At least some legislature. Some angry little team of white mothers would be up in arms. Having...
Chile Bye: You will not police my revenge... →
liquornspice: Nope. I will try to warn you if they are especially violent and gruesome. But I will fucking relish flamethrowering a dozen white people and laughing over their bodies. I will have that fantasy and I will let it fill me with joy and pleasure and sweet sublime happiness. And I…
This is not up for debate
But is meant to serve as a view into why so many of us align with the “race + power = racism” perspective. Again, I’m not interested in debating this (not even a little bit!), but I want to place this here for anyone that might get something from it. Maybe you can sense that the formula makes sense but just can’t quite wrap your mind around it. Maybe you align with others...
notime4yourshit asked: Hey you! What made you decide to make a tumblr?
Sluts need healthcare too and Ain't I a Woman?
So I came to tumblr to make two points about the internally-sexist and racism in the responses I’ve seen to Rush Limbaugh’s attack on Sandra Fluke and before I could post saw this link posted at SexwithTimaree.com and found a lot of what I wanted to say expressed already. First, the racism: There is a very long history of calling women of color and nonwhite women, particularly...
His face is haunting me. Look at this kid. He looks timid and innocent. I am distraught over his death. His murder. I have wept for him more than I have wept for the deaths of blood relatives. I hate to admit it (and will likely deny it after I post this), but to some extent I had become numb to the deaths of young Black boys and men. It’s like “oh, they killed another one? What, is...
Treating Men Like Four-Year-Olds
Men are given a lot of credit for trying–trying to be nice, trying to be communicative, trying to be attentive. And you’ve either given a man that kind of credit before, or you’ve heard another woman praise a half-hearted attempt at emotional expression: “He’s trying to be nicer, he’s trying to be more attentive, he’s doing better.” Or my personal favorite, “Awww, this is his way of saying he...

From One White Gay Male to Another: Calling out... →
“The problem here relates to the concerns around the motivations behind “It Gets Better,” where again, it appears that Black bodies don’t matter, or, they only matter if and only if they are designated as queer. Moreover, those non-queer Black bodies are imagined as existing outside of the frame of citizenship because they ostensibly violate the rights of enfranchised (White) gay men.”
Although it has become synonymous with jackass/asshole/etc for misogynistic reasons, douches really are rather useless. Beyond being useless they are potentially harmful as they disrupt the body’s natural system of cleaning itself. In addition to altering our body’s chemistry and natural pH balance. The idea that women need to douche because our vaginas are unclean or odorous is...
House Democrats have raised more than $1.1 million in the past week from their “War on Women” campaign, according to a Thursday email from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Thanks to your generous support and efforts, we raised over $1,114,000 for our women’s health rapid response fund and we’re only 18,000 signatures away from 500,000 supporters strong...
Phyllis Ferguson, the mother of Chardon High School shooting victim Demetrius Hewlin, told ABC News that if she had the chance to talk to suspected gunman T.J. Lane, “I would tell him I forgive him because, a lot of times, they don’t know what they’re doing. That’s all I’d say.” “Until you’ve walked in another person’s shoes, you...
