I’d like to correct this:
“God, send us someone to cure AIDS, cancer, etc., etc.”
“I did, but you gave them a substandard education because they lived in an area with poor funding due to low property taxes.  
I did, but you let them die because they couldn’t afford healthcare.  
I did, but due to racism you stomped out their potential and didn’t give them the same opportunities.  
I did, but you make a college education too unaffordable while giving the big bankers passes.
I did, but you saw a homeless youth before you saw a kid with potential.  
I did, but you kicked the downtrodden while they were already shoulder deep in sinking sand.”

reblogging for the comment

I did, but you forced her to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term, forcing her to become a single mother with limited income, having to sacrifice her college dreams in order to provide for her unwanted child.

fucking BOOM ^

bless the god damn comments on this post.

"The hyper-sexualization of little girls and their bodies, as a mother, really bothers me. It plays into the sexualization of their bodies into their teenager years and adult life. It makes them grow up faster than they need to. Let them be little girls, have fun, be able to play in the playground and not worry about going on the monkey bars because someone’s going to see their underwear. Something like this constricts their movements, which affects the way they play."Jenny Reid, a volunteer firefighter with Langford Fire Rescue, says the costume is not only offensive to women in her field, it’s also damaging to the self-esteem of little girls.
"That costume is awful and it sends the wrong message," she says. "It reinforces that there are still jobs that are off-limits to women. It’s not a representation of the real job. Little girls can do whatever they want. They shouldn’t be restricted. Those types of costumes put so many limitations on them. They don’t build the self-esteem and confidence you need to be a firefighter or police officer." " [x]

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.

Let’s not forget that these ladies are STILL out there grinding on the front lines for feminism.

I fucked up

I held out for nearly a year but I fell in love with her. I saw her first in my chemistry class in January. She was in the first row, and for the first two weeks, my eyes kept drifting down from the blackboard to her hair; I wanted to know more. In the third week, the professor came up to talk to me and she looked back. My eyes flashed to hers for only an instant, but that was enough. The words playing in my head, unbidden, were, “Oh shit, oh shit, oh shit.” I had not expected that intensity of attraction. My friends say she doesn’t have an attractive face, it wasn’t her face that I responded to.

I didn’t meet her until I was playing the GoT board game with some friends. One of them started collecting money to pay his girlfriend whenever she showed up with the beer. She didn’t recognize me at first, I did. She sat next to a guy who was watching us play and started a conversation with him. She got bored with him and with us, making sarcastic comments about how fun it all was. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the game and so I forfeited the game and started talking to her. At the end of it, she said that we were probably going to be good friends.

I avoided her as much as I could stand for the first several months; I didn’t want to intrude on her relationship. When summer came and the end of a guaranteed connection through school ended, I began to see her more and more, playing video games with her boyfriend while she’d cook for us; on weekends we’d all drink together. For the past three months since she’s moved into her own place (problems with their roommate), I’ve been spending a lot of time one on one with her. Since I swore in, we’ve been spending even more time together. And this whole time we’ve been strictly friends, and she’s still dating the same guy. She’s not happy in the relationship but there’s no real reason to end it. He’s a good person, he just can’t match her ambition. Up til this weekend, I’d done an excellent job of not falling in love with her.

I got back in touch with a friend in a neighboring town and we decided to see UMEK together. He still owed me a pill and I decided I’d go ahead and do it since it’s been over a year. The show came up in concert with this girl and I invited her along. She’s been longing for a chance to dance since her boyfriend isn’t into it and she said she’d come.

Long story short, the X was far more intense than I had remembered and I was not in full control anymore. With every flash of light across her face, her every smooth move, my barriers broke piece by piece until I came to despise the men around trying to get closer to her. Love reentered my being along with every other emotion. My violence has been reawakened and I can’t sleep anymore, alternatively thinking of her and all that needs to be done in the world.

I know what’s coming. The inevitable three months of severe depression as I remind myself that I have no skills, no achievements, nothing to offer, that she and my goals in the science of energy remain forever out of my lethargic reach. Perhaps I could somehow summon the energy to better myself and face her as an equal, but I feel no motivation to change my fundamental view of existence and I have no intention of trying to tie myself to a woman of such power and purpose to a man such as I, of impotent desire and willpower, with no expectation of happiness, living like a fucking shadow.

Haha, of course Mouthful of Diamonds plays right as I finish this.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
