This level of conflict of interest is massively unsurprising.

This is horrifying. The worst of Chicago politics migrated south to St. Louis.

Extremely. While we think of Chicago and New York as the most corrupt, we tend to forget our own local politics. This problem is wide spread in every city/county/state. 

There is no way to escape it until we all become aware of this problem. And then when we are aware, we have to organize and attack the problem by its roots.

I was always confused by the statement “Teach men not to rape" because it implies that men are taught to rape women. Or if men aren’t "taught" to not rape women then we will have the urge to do so. 

My parents never taught me not to rape women. It was just common sense. The reality is some men (and women) are just sick. No matter what they are “taught” it is very well possible that they will still rape someone. 

You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink.

Bruh using this logic is like a white person saying “my parents never taught me to be racist so I can’t be racist” you don’t just learn social norms from your parents you learn it from school media and other institutions. Of course boys aren’t just being sat down and told “if a girl doesn’t want to have sex from you you take it then” but they’re taught socially things like a woman being drunk is a pass or that if a dude takes a woman out to dinner then he deserves sex.
And your point of saying “some people are just sick” is dismissive as well cause you’re basically saying it’s gonna happen and people should just prepare for it which is a very dangerous thing
1 of out of every 6 American women have been a victim of attempted or completed rape so under your theory there are a whole lot of people who are “just sick”
2/3’s of rape are committed by someone a victim knew
That’s a scary thought to say basically someone you know is gonna be sick enough to rape you one day
Rape is not some undeniable condition
It’s a social condition that can be changed
All the stats I stated can be found on rainn.org
Stay blessed

White, stomping with misandry in your litas and Tina Fey gifs while simultaneously ignoring women of color and their feelings but having plenty of time to talk about winged eyeliner and discussing which white basic actor is your new “bae”, feminists keep messaging me saying I’m sexist for the piggy part of my url and I laughed and scrolled but then scrolled back cause I remembered I had a lil somethin somethin that might be relevant.

The title of this blog refers to these tweets that were the cause of me unfollowing her (how did you think I found all these in the first place, duh). If this isn’t acting like a misogynistic pig I don’t know what is. Let’s be real, azaleans (is that a type of enemy alien race?) do anything to excuse her behavior cause she’s a white woman doing black music with a body and mannerisms typically associated with black women. She’s pear shaped with a “fat” ass. Black girls with literally the same measurements are called ghetto and shamed for their curves. She raps like a non archival photo copied T.I., southern twang and all, but since she’s actually Australian and white her stans are okay with it cause once the mic drops she has an ~exotic accent~ and ~cute voice.~ Her use of misogynistic slurs to put down other women and build up herself are in your twitter bio cause it’s so swaggy hunty gurl spill that fancy tea!!! But when Beyonce, Lil Kim, Nicki Minaj, Trina, or any black female artist (who im not saying are without flaws) talks about “slaying hos” and how bitches should bow down, it’s suddenly a problem that requires full length articles in actual publications and countless tumblr posts. Like Miley Cyrus, she’s used black women as props and until recently had exclusively black dancers who twerked the fuck out on a hand stand, doin that thang while she stood there and occasionally gave a D- booty shake that the crowd still went off for more than the actual pros popping their pussies off the damn ceiling and filling me with the holy spirit. Do us all a favor and accept you’re excusing her being a careless racist because of her appearance. You can still wanna lick her pussy, bop to her white girl anthems or have your body tied to a carriage and dragged by Brad Pitt like Eric Bana in Troy just to reach that ass. But be real and quit denying that what she’s said is okay by anything but Donald Sterling’s standards. As Paul Mooney once said, “Everybody wants to be a nigga, but nobody wants to be a nigga." She’s a low quality xerox of black female rappers and white America couldn’t wait so they didn’t have to bop to actual hip hop anymore from the people who created it.

And for the 956 messages calling me a hater, a hater is someone who reads with no resume and critiques with no credentials. I have more degrees than a thermometer. I don’t know what bullet-less gun y’all were holding when you thought you had a shot at rationalizing these “jokes” when they’re not hot, not even lukewarm. Now run and tell that.

and have a lovely evening! xxx

 

*feel free to reblog this without the text, i don’t want my opinion to dominate the conversation regardless of whether I feel I’m right (I am 💅) or not.

You know what’s not fucking cool? Cultural appropriation.

You know what is fucking cool? Buying clothing inspired by a culture that is designed by the people of that culture.

Think Native styles are cool? Here, let introduce you to Patricia Michaels of Toas Pueblo. She is a Native woman who designs amazing clothes inspired by her heritage. She knows what from her culture is appropriate for mass-production and what is meant to be sacred, hand-made, or inherited. When you buy her clothes (available at her store Waterlily), or any Native person’s products, you’re giving your money directly to the cultures you claim to respect and admire. When you buy bullshit knockoffs from American Eagle, however, you’re being an asshole.

And seriously though look at her clothes they’re fucking amazing this woman is wild talented. 

Consent is a YES, not a non-response.

Consent is wholehearted, enthusiastic agreement.

Consent is returning touches and engaging in the sexual activity, not ‘letting’ it happen.

Consent cannot be given when a person isn’t conscious.

Consent cannot be given if it has taken convincing.

Consent CAN be taken back (which means the other partner stops what they are doing in response to the removal of consent).

Consent needs to be given sober.

ANYTHING WITHOUT CONSENT IS SEXUAL ASSAULT/RAPE.

This Phone App Helps Transgender Users Change The Pitch And Tone Of Their Voices

glsen:

buzzfeedlgbt reports on this amazing app:

The app’s website states it will take at least 6 to 12 months to effectively alter one’s voice. This video clip features an example “before and after” segment, having a user sample her “original” and “altered” voice:

As one user of the app put it: “Voice can be a real liability. There are definitely large parts of this country, even this state, where it’s dangerous to be trans. It can be a matter of life or death.”

At just $4.99, this app is a far more affordable option for users than visiting a vocal coach or speech pathologist. What a great resource!
