What is this I don't even
THEME BY SARAHCATHS+
In some ways it was easier for my generation. Racism was blatant and obvious. The “Whites Only” signs let us know clearly, what we were up against. Not much has changed, but the system of lies and trickology is much more sophisticated. Today young people have to be highly informed and acutely analytical, or they will be swept up into a whirlpool of lies and deception.

Assata Shakur, Honey Magazine debut issue (1998)

My friend shared this quote with me today and I instantly remembered another great quote from Assata Shakur that I feel is crucial to be absorbed when reading the quote above “No one is going to give you the education you need to overthrow them. Nobody is going to teach you your true history, teach you your true heroes, if they know that that knowledge will help set you free”.

See this goes out to people who constantly think those of us in this generation are too sensitive or are always looking for racism when it’s just that we realize how tactics have changed…racism has never gone away they’ve just tried to change the face of the game…

If any of you ever feel bad about how you are progressing as an adult, I want you to know that I just got my literal first message today from my graduating class about the 10 year reunion that should have been this summer, some half-assed email through facebook on some group I joined years ago…

Well you must be on Facebook/involved with people we went to school with waaay more than me because I didn’t even know this was a thing

I only knew because it sent me an email and I was like “dafuq?”

bifca asked,
Sometimes the rampant misogyny in fic is subtle enough to be ignored and other times I just want to punch everyone

Eeeeewwwwwwwww

I’m sorry

One of the many reasons I’m so picky about what I read

People are under no obligation to call you your prefered pronouns. Be thankful for the ones that do.

i hope that everyone forever refers to you only as “piece of shit,” and they’re all nonchalant about it like that’s just what you’re supposed to be called, and when you tell them that you don’t like being called that, they just show you a printed out version of this post.

Dryad’s if you can’t already tell are what I based my username after. I’ve loved the mythology behind them for so many years now. This lady here is going to be the backdrop for my website once I get it up and running.

If you look at the world and say “Yes, there are enough homes for people, yes, there is enough food for people, but if we give it away for free they won’t have earned it and the economy will collapse.” Then you have chosen money (a constructed medium of exchange) over living beings who only want to continue living in peace and safety.

And I have no qualms telling you, that is the wrong choice, and you have been brainwashed by this destructive, exploitative system.

I don’t get why everyone seems to be under the impression that feminists hate men.

That’s not true at all! We Love men!

…Well, not ALL men.

I told myself I’d reblog this when I got home if it was still funny.

It was.

its ok to criticize feminism for being exclusionary towards women of color, trans women, poor women, and women from nonwestern cultures

it’s not ok to criticize feminism for not centering itself around men

are we still forgetting disabled women or

Well that was ironic (and amusing)

just screwed up typing the expression “he ducked his head” twice in Word while editing (…and once now when I was typing this post, hand to my fucking heart)

after all the times my phone has wanted to talk about ducking this and ducking that, I’m almost blue in the face from laughing so hard over here
