but wait how do i describe the juncture between racism and sexism??? oh wait haha
So it’s wrong to compliment yourself???
We live in a world of self hate, huh?
"There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”."
You know what the best rape prevention method is?
Not raping people.
100% of the time with civil rights movements, the group with power is often concerned about loss of power and position than they are what’s right or wrong; it never fails.
Whites think POC want to demonize them then take over and run everything. No, we want equality.
Men think women just want to male bash and dominate the man. No, we want equality.
Straight people think the LGBTQ community wants to take over and ‘spread their homosexuality’. No, they want equality.
The rich and wealthy think middle class and poor want raise taxes and live off their wealth. Bourgeoisie think the proletariat are out to get them. No, we want equality.
You can find that pattern all throughout history. It’s all about their desire to remain dominant. Anytime minority groups start to make gains, the majority in power make sure there’s a set back. We’re not meant to be truly free or empowered. They don’t want competition. If we’re not powerless then the system does not work; we’re meant to be subordinate. That is America’s blueprint, that is the reality.
In history class…
"White people built america"
"Columbus is a hero"
"Survival of the fittest"
"Slavery, segregation, some MLK & Rosa Parks happened, end of racism"
"The Melting Pot"
"Land of the free/opportunity"
BREAKING: September 9th will be officially an entire month since the murder of Ferguson African-American unarmed teenage Michael Brown, at the hands of racist Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson.

we need to eliminate the idea that men losing their virginity at very young ages to much older women is normal. those women are predators and the innocence of little boys needs to be protected.
