You are angry about something. “Clam down,” I text you. You assume I have made a typo, but in fact I am holding a small soldier clam in my hands. He died so young. War is hell
Random crow shows up on dude’s porch, looks him straight in the face and says ‘fuck you’
well the guy did call him a motherfucker in the beginning ok
The fucking sound he makes kills me every time
Run for your lives!
I can’t believe it
THIS IS MY OTHER FAVOIRTE VINE
reminder that if we’re in a mutual and you’re under the age of 18 and find it creepy or weird that i’m following you back as an adult then let me know and i’ll unfollow and it won’t need to be a big deal at all… like, please put your own safety and wellbeing first
Agreed. I’m 44, and I’m a teacher. And if my following you on Tumblr makes you uncomfortable, please send me a fanmail and I’ll unfollow you post-haste.
A blog should be safe space, no matter the platform, and it’s part of the reason I don’t generally send messages to folks; if you want to talk with me, it’s up to you to initiate contact. And likewise, if you want me to cease and desist, please ask, and know that I’ll bow out with nary a word of nastiness.
Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014
Both by Dan Bagan
Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.
Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”
Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.
These are women are who I always wanted to be.
STUDENT LOANS appeared!! What will you do??
Any guesses as to what I’ve got coming up…
PSA: because I keep seeing that shitty manipulated photo of Emma Watson on my dash. THAT PHOTO WAS PHOTOSHOPPED. The original photo (with another from the same shoot, is from 2011 with Mariano Vivanco) are pictured above. Please don’t perpetuate this error.
Deliberately spreading an altered image of Emma Watson which purports to show her breasts as a statement against threats of nude photo leaks is the height of hypocrisy and whoever did it should be ashamed. (x)
Thank you .
