Where in Ferguson, Missouri…

iflewbikes:

Where are the 2nd Amendment gun users who insist that they need high capacity magazines and semi-automatic rifles for when the government oppress people with force?

Where are the Men’s Rights Activists who claim to care about the amount of men killed, incarcerated, and hurt at the hands of the government?

Where are the Tea Partiers who want a small and unoppressive government?

Where is their action?

Why aren’t they in the streets, linking arms around protestors and protecting them?

Why aren’t they sending more news out there and spreading awareness in the time of a media blackout?

They claim this is their business, but they’re silent.

They made it their business when they used it as an excuse to maintain their bigotry.

"why dont you just give him a chance"

idk because im not physically or mentally attracted to him and ‘but he likes you’ or ‘but hes really nice’ isnt going to change the fact that im not interested

Damn, I don’t think women know how much that really hurts

you know what else hurts?????????? getting abused for being a ‘bad person’ because you didnt want to date somebody that you werent interested in

^^^^^^^^^^

And women get told every day that people we’d like to date aren’t interested, but we fuckin’ well put on our big girl bras, eat a little ice cream, and get the fuck over it.

What you’re saying is that you’re so infantile you handle rejection worse than my six-year-old niece. Is that really how you want to be seen?

I don’t get these posts that go like “part of me wants to be a hot girl at the bar and the other part of me wants to read and sip tea in a bookstore”

like you can wear red lipstick and a leather jacket and sip tea and dance in the rain and go to the gym and curl up in bed and get turnt the fuck up and go to church

you can literally have it all sis

the world is yours

This is the most inspiring thing I have ever read

of course Jennifer cannot control if she wins or not but Jennifer is a recipient of white privilege and benefits from that privilege so much so that she can give a sub par performance in a sub par movie and be wrongfully recognized as this great talent which she is not. 

she’s a serviceable actress but there is no way in hell she should be a two-time golden globe winner and an academy award winning actress. 

Lupita gave one of the best on screen performances i’ve ever seen and i’ve watched a lot of movies and this girl has only just begun acting. 

She was robbed tonight. Pure and simple. And instead of focusing on poor Jennifer being blamed from something she can’t control we should be focusing on poor Lupita who can be damn near flawless in a movie and yet is not deemed good enough to be awarded for her efforts because of a system that is set up for her and others like her to fail.

gradientlair:

“A woman should have every honorable motive to exertion which is enjoyed by man, to the full extent of her capacities and endowments. The case is too plain for argument. Nature has given woman the same powers, and subjected her to the same earth, breathes the same air, subsists on the same food, physical, moral, mental and spiritual. She has, therefore, an equal right with man, in all efforts to obtain and maintain a perfect existence.” - Frederick Douglass’ Paper, June 10, 1853.

I feel tumblr may be falling into a dean-gerous trap with their nauseating overuse of the word “sassy”

if you’re not familiar with the show, Yvette Nicole Brown has talked a lot about how amazing it is that she’s playing a black woman who isn’t “sassy” and how important that is to her. <3333333

The government shut down is so annoying because like

THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT IS LAW.

IT IS ALREADY LAW.

It was passed by Congress.

It was upheld by the Supreme Court.

IT IS LAW.

So like this desperate attempt by the Republicans to bypass democratic processes in order to stop the ACA by defunding it is disgusting and I hope that this backfires gloriously and the Republicans loose the House next year.
