Team my idea of new clothes is going into my closet and wearing things that didn’t fit me when I was younger

The way transwomen are poked fun at in the name of “entertainment” is appalling.
Imagine if this same angle was used to make a joke about a well-known transman. Using a high-pitched female sounding voice or making a mockery of their genitals. I’m sure it’s happened, but it wouldn’t be considered nearly as acceptable as it is when a transwomen is the butt of the joke.
The girls have it tough when it comes to the general populous and their ignorant perception.
It’s not okay.
#TransPeopleareNotaJoke- Too right.

Europe belongs to Europeans. Immigrants are welcome so long as they assimilate into the local culture and don’t race mix if their genes are dominant.

funny how Europeans all of a sudden decide that moving into other countries is bad after 3000 years of destroying non-western cultures, then complain when people they colonize want to move to Europe for a better living standard

lol yt people <3

The big lie about capitalism is that everyone can be rich. That’s impossible. Capitalism works only if the vast majority of the population are kept poor enough to never quit working, are kept poor enough to accept distasteful jobs society cannot function without. If everyone were a millionaire, who would empty the trash or repair the sewers? It follows that the poorer the general population is made, the greater the worth of the money held by the wealthy, in terms of the lives which may be bought and sold with it.

Michael Rivero  (via lapalomanegra, fucknobigbrother) (via femmewolfprince) (via navigatethestream) (via solidarityforever) (via mommapolitico)

And those who don’t accept their portion of poverty are shipped to for-profit jails and work for nothing.

Tha kind of Capitalism that has existed in the last hundred years is for straight white cis-men. may it burn

Woah! Definitely never learned about her!

*TRIGGER WARNING FOR RAPE*
"Go ahead and call the cops- they can’t unrape you”
Imagine being a 13 year old girl who has been raped. By multiple boys. And your rape was filmed and then shared on Facebook, where an audience of thousands of anonymous users watched your personal strife. The next step would be to go to the police – and so you do. And their response? To ask what you were wearing. And then dismiss your rape, saying there’s not enough evidence to proceed.
That’s what happened to a 13 year old young woman who was raped two years ago. 
She was the victim of Roast Busters, a group of boys who secretly filmed themselves gang raping intoxicated underage girls. They then humiliated these women by bragging on Facebook – posting videos and sharing the personal anguish of these women with an audience of thousands. 
The police are saying there’s not enough evidence to convict these Roast Busters, so they won’t charge them. But, it’s now come to light that one of the rapists is, in fact, a local police officer’s son. And that in the past few years 4 victims have gone to the police – and their voices were consistently ignored. 
It’s clear that the police force isn’t doing its part to find justice for these young women. These young women are being dismissed by the official body that is supposed to support those in need – and they have nowhere to turn to because of a lack of proper support services for victims of assault.
That’s why we need Prime Minister John Key to step up and do the right thing.

My mother used to say that the black woman is the white man’s mule and the white woman is his dog. Now, she said that to say this: we do the heavy work and get beat whether we do it well or not. But the white woman is closer to the master and he pats them on the head and lets them sleep in the house, but he ain’ gon’ treat neither one like he was dealing with a person. Now, if I was to tell a white woman that, the first thing she would do is to call you a nigger and then she’d be real nice to her husband so he would come out here and beat you for telling his wife the truth.

Nancy White as quoted in From Servitude to Service Work: Historical Continuities in the Racial Division of Paid Reproductive Labor (via ninjabikeslut)

This is why Black women cannot desire to achieve “equality” with White women (or Black men, actually) because their position is still oppressed. This is why “damsel in distress” narratives (usually reserved for White women) for Black women such as in Django Unchained are not inherently progressive feminist ones. Shifting places in a hierarchy meant to oppress is not revolution. Challenging and crushing the hierarchy is. However, this positionality has to be discussed in terms of experiences and differences. It cannot be ignored solely to make the ones with the more “approved” notches (at a particular intersection) feel more “comfortable” with their privilege.

OOP. But don’t you tell a white feminist this. She’ll cry them white tears and then run to the first white man who’ll stick up for them.

They did it in the past, and they still do it now.
