I'm a lady, you're a lady...we are the ladies.

Ask me.   Okay, but here's my question: who are...the ladies? Obvi we're the ladies. I'm not the ladies. Yeah, you're the ladies. I'm NOT the ladies. Yes, you are! You're the ladies! You're being unfair. You can't force me to be a lady. I'm not forcing you to be a lady, you just- okay, i'm a lady, she's a lady, you're a lady...we are the ladies.

"One of the most durable paradoxes of white supremacy - the idea that those who are closest to an experience of oppression are its least credible witnesses."

Walter Johnson, Soul by soul: life inside the antebellum slave market
(via drapetomaniakkk)

This is the type of violence—from microaggressions to epistemic violence to emotional/physical violence to enslavement/genocide—that gets justified by asserting that the oppressor is “objective” and “logical” and thereby “credible.” As if there is objectivity in choosing to oppress. As if the emotions of entitlement, indifference, greed or hatred aren’t involved.

The US Government:We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
The US Government:If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
The US Government:And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
The US Government:In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
The US Government:If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
The US Government:Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
The US Government:And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
The US Government:The parent who is working 16 hours a day

Translating science into plain English at the Exploratorium
As California and the nation race to educate more scientists, mathematicians, and creative thinkers, we can’t afford to leave students behind because they weren’t brought up speaking English, says Lynn Rankin, director of the Exploratorium’s Institute for Inquiry.
That’s why USF’s Sarah Capitelli has helped turn the San Francisco exploratorium’s renowned, hands-on science into language lessons for non-English speaking students. | Full story »

afro-dominicano:

I hate commentary that assumes white people even have anything worthwhile to say in “opening a national race discussion”. Like what do you have to say over what I have experienced? What makes you think your thoughts on this are so much more important that it has weight over the millions of other poc voices that are actually dealing with something that’s an abstract to you? Why should your voice matter over theirs? That’s like taking medical advice from the hospital janitor over your doctor just cause they’re in the same institution. It doesn’t work like that. Why would it work in discussions as important as racism? We give the wrong people a voice when we do shit like that, people who are already heard.

"Because we don’t speak about sex, there is no socially acceptable language surrounding it. So the language of porn has jumped in to fill that space, and that’s an issue, because in a male-dominated industry the language of porn is all too often male-generated. The person who coined the term “finger blasting” didn’t have a vagina. The person who coined the term, “getting your ass railed” never got their ass railed. Pounding, hammering, banging… And language matters, because when the only language you have available is abusive and one-directional, in terms of having things done to you, it creates a very weird view of how sex works."

"beat the pussy up"

"tear that ass up"

"smashed that shit"

Porn has created a fucked up mindset and you cannot tell me it hasn’t

It’s not okay when you see nothing but

"MONSTER DICK DESTROYS TEEN PUSSY"

"SLUTS POUNDED FOR HOURS"

There is no intimacy. There is no sensitivity

Just the vagina as a masturbation toy for the penis to use.

Not two or more human beings coming together and actually ENJOYING themselves.
