You know, the one that gives housewives/full-time mothers a pension— wages for housework?
It’s ONLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR FEMINISM, SOCIALISM, AND WOMEN OF COLOR. Not a big deal or anything. Tumblr is mysteriously silent about this.
“During the civili rights struggle, Birmingham canceled high school prom for many black teenagers. This weekend, the dance went on for the Class of 1963”
The people who were teenagers during the Civil Rights Movement are still alive, y’all. Their lives were affected by blatant, government-sanctioned racism. It astounds me that people act like it was thousands of years ago.
yo i’m tearing up a little bit
This is beautiful. So beautiful.
Can we just take a minute to think about how, if I were to put up an identifiable nude picture of myself, on my own blog, taken in my own bathroom, it could come back around an ruin my life?
let’s just think about how, no matter what I do with my life - become a teacher, a lawyer, a scientist, a professor - a photograph of my naked body could render largely null and void the value that others would be willing to give to me.
It would not matter if I were a virgin - it would not matter if I meant them for a lover’s eyes only - it would not matter whether or not I did it for money - my own naked body could actually ruin my life and my work.
Can we just think about that? That is powerful, and not in a good way.” — versatilequeen.tumblr.com (via corybantics)
Five Ways to Spot Somebody Suffering from Transphobia
reblogging because my anons are fucking up.
TAKEI OH MY GOD.
To the men who have told me that I’m overreacting and “it’s the 21st century women are equal now”
Note that the “women make only 77.5 cents for every dollar that men earn” statistic applies only to white women. Women of color make significantly less.
- Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
- Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.
Thought you couldn’t hate Obama any more than you already do? This is absolutely absurd. Just the mere fact that he would ask (order) a Marine to do this shows he has no concept of respect. Think this is photoshopped? I got it from the CNN website. It’s completely true. Do a web search and you’ll see multiple sources. This President is absolutely worthless.
Title ten of the Armed Forces US Code says that members of the military do what is asked of them by their Commander in Chief. The man next to them is the Prime Minister of Hungary. It would be bad show to let the rain fall on the head of a visiting diplomat, and any Marine on Presidential duty is honored to be there. This is not about the umbrellas, it is about treating visiting dignitaries with honor and respect. To only have an umbrella over the head of Prime Minister Orban would be a sign of superiority or strength over the visiting PM. The president did the correct thing in the situation by showing enough respect for his fellow leader and giving them both an equal platform.
Y’all need to stop freaking the fuck out over stupid shit like umbrellas.
also he didn’t think he even needed the umbrella, thus resulting in this picture of him checking if it was even raining even more aka my favorite picture of him ever:
Speaking as the son of a former Army officer, OP’s post is even more disrespectful towards the Marine in the photo - and the US military in general - than it is towards the President. It shows that literally the only part of being in the military OP has respect for is the part that involves killing others and that is not the biggest part of the military by a long shot and is not the part of military service most members joined for. People join the military to serve the nation, and part of that is stuff like this. There is a reason active duty military do not and are not supposed to discuss their opinions of a President during that President’s term. The President is the Commander in Chief regardless of who they actually are. Republican, Democrat, third party, no longer existent party: it does not matter. Being art of the White House guard and the Presidential detail, especially when a foreign dignitary or leader is present, is one of the biggest honors in the military.
But it’s a fucking umbrella, so complaining about it in the first place is massively moronic.
OP postin’ some Fox news Facebook level shit.
god fucking bless
Seriously, god bless. I currently get paid $8 an hour, while rent for a LOFT in this area would take up a full paycheck of mine. And then some. I’ve noticed so many people stuck with their parents because their PARENTS forced them into that situation. My mother sabotaged my finding a job and pulled me down so I’d be there to support her, I’ve seen a mother rely her full family support on the paycheck of her daughter, I’ve seen parents bribe their kids into staying in their house, I’ve seen parents so connected and attached to the idea of having a kid always in the house. I can’t go to college out of fear of debt, and I was raised being told to NEVER get a credit card and now I have no credit to get an apartment. Everywhere I look I see our generation getting blamed for the fact that we’re trapped, and I’m really sick of it. God bless Colbert.
Just thought I’d share this, the TIME magazine response to the outcry against their “Me Me Me Generation” cover.
They heard our responses, and while they are not apologetic about their article, they mention Tumblr, which means that they saw the response. Our reaction matters. Remember that our generation is not always just protesting into deaf ears, and that we can make a difference.
god fucking bless
This is the only thing boys on the internet care about at the end of the day
They give no fucks about sexism, all they want is to be assured that it’s only ”a tiny fraction of men” that is the problem, that they are not part of it, and therefore they don’t have to question anything about themselves.
Or you know, they’re really tired of being lumped together in a stereotypical majority similar to how you shouldn’t make stereotype’s of POCs and women, and as soon as one’s made all hell breaks loose. You shouldn’t assume with guys either, two wrongs don’t make a right, and hell- you don’t know who may be trans* and understand the oppression that women go through and have dealt with it themselves. You don’t know things, and it’s really discouraging to have everyone tell you that all men are pigs, because you’re a man so you must be a pig.
