Idk why I keep getting sad over people that don’t give a shit about me.
what a time to be alive, to have strong female characters being portrayed by
women of colorblack women
kerry washington, nicole beharie, and viola davis are all black women
they have faced countless attacks from the media and from fans due to their blackness
do not erase who they are and who/what they represent
*gets married to the shmoney*
This is important to know. As we evolve, so does our external reality.
Gonna let go for GOOD.
welcome to the FEMINIST CULT, today we’ll talk about terrifying topics such as BEING NICE TO YOURSELF and PROPER SEX EDUCATION
What is “shoot up schools and public attractions”
what is “eat unseasoned chicken”
What is “drink water flavored kool-aid”
What is “kiss dogs/pets in the mouth”
what is “read Readers Digest”
What is “go every and anwhere wearing flip flops”
What is “massacre an entire race and enslave another?”
What is not wash their hair for a year and call it “dreds”
Wear flip flops and shorts in 0 below weather

The Whitest Kids U’ Know x
I really spent four years in the states thinking this couldn’t possibly be a real thing but then I graduated and everyone knew the pledge of allegiance PERFECTLY and then I realized how true this gifset really is. If you say something enough as a kid, it’ll never leave you. The thing tho, is that normally, kids know lullabies, and songs. Not a poem about mindless patriotism.
REBLOGGING FOR ALL THE FUCKING TIMES I GOT IN TROUBLE, MAINLY IN HIGH SCHOOL, FOR NOT SAYING THE WEAK ASS PLEDGE!
SAME! I used to “baaaaaaa” during the pledge in middle school lol
in high school one of my teachers told me that if i didnt say the pledge, i had to write him an essay to explain why. The next day i dropped 5 pages of fuck you on his desk in mla format and i never had to say the pledge in that class again
I used to say the pledge out of anxiety of not doing what everyone else was, but after a while I just went “fuck it” and stopped.
By the time high school came around for me everyone had stopped even standing for it and none of the teachers cared. They didn’t do it either.
You can never label yourself as “one of the good ones” you gotta be constantly calling yourself out and checking yourself and if you can call out others. We all have internalized shit we gotta combat every second. Just gotta deal with that. Re: racism, misogyny, transmisogny, transphobia, etc. We all have something to work on!

You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment. People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously. Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life. Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day! So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!! Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions. Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it. With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!
We are right here!!Things to think about.
So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.
Is this true?
Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.
Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST
