"If you are a white woman and you want to call yourself a feminist, you must acknowledge that your whiteness affords you a privilege that shields you from a lot. You must also acknowledge that you are afforded privileges that some men in this country do not have. Racism and sexism are tightly intertwined. You cannot fight one while ignoring the other."

THIS is a read! My god, YES!!!

dagsdfDASFDHGF THIS IS PERFECT AS FUCK.

P.o.c. white people
100 -100

I just put my fist in the air after that read. Lord.

its so hilarious to me that we’re so inferior yet everybody wants our shit.

We’re so inferior that everyone wants to incorporate AAVE, twerking, and “hip hop beats” into their daily life to seem cool.

White people love us on the sly but they don’t want to shift the balance of power or the limelight by openly admitting it.

LIBRARY IS MOTHERFUCKING

GOD BE PRAISED!

That read drew BLOOD. MY GOD.

even when i’m down, im still bigger than you.

German teenager Kim Petras has become the world’s youngest operated transsexual youngest child whose personal surgical procedure has been made into a public spectacle by the media after undergoing a surgery at the age of just 16. The procedure – carried out in secret and paid for by the German health service, which doesn’t sound at all secretive to me– was authorised after psychologists cissexist gatekeepers confirmed used their privileged position of power and culturally-upheld superiority to proclaim that she was “without doubt a girl in a boy’s body” a girl, something she knew all along and didn’t need anyone else to tell her. It is the world’s youngest ever most sensationalized full sex change operation vaginoplasty what does “full sex change operation” even mean seriously you guys and Kim had been undergoing hormone therapy since the age of 12. We’re not sure why we need to report all this information. Should we list any other medications she might be on as well? I hear she took Nyquil a couple months ago too.Kim overcame years of taunts and bullying to achieve her dream of becoming a girl and now must contend with this kind of ignorant bullshit media coverage, isn’t that nice? And has begun a modelling career and launched a CD which is more of a contribution to the world than whoever wrote this original article could ever hope to give. Kim, who is now studying fashion design, began calling herself a girl when she was just two years old knew who the fuck she was since she was born jeez what a surprise you douchebags get over yourselves already.

A woman’s body is not for you. If she wants to cover it, she should feel free and safe in doing so. If she wants to expose it, she should feel free and safe in doing so. It is not an indication of her self-respect, but an indication of her preferences for whatever reasons she chooses — none of which are your business or concern.

THIS IS AN ART PIECE CALLED:
"NUDE: WHOSE FUCKING SKIN COLOR IS THIS, BECAUSE IT SURE AINT MINE”

What’s actually funny is I’m really pale so that nude colored clothing and such is my actual legit skin tone. I’ve worn ripped shirts with a skin tone cami underneath and have had teachers come up to me and tell me to change before I explain it to them.

*golf clap*
GOOD FOR YOU BITCH but this isn’t about you..
it’s about the fact that in this lovely white supremacist society we all have to endure, White is assumed to be the default race and anyone that variates from that is just an afterthought, if any thought at all. In the words of Toni Morrison, “In this country American means white. Everybody else has to hyphenate.” It speaks to a whole realm of political, social and socio-economical issues that derive from this perspective that permeates White Supremacy thinking. A point you clearly just helped me prove, like here I am trying to make a statement and you wanted to make this all about you, you need to work on your inferencing skills ma. Now here’s a little fun fact to tickle your pickle:  Human skin comes in lots of shades.
 I know, your mind is blown right?
