um, excuse me, we HAVE to assign this baby a gender. how else will we know what color blanket to give it? do you just want babies to be cold and blanketless? do you hate babies and want them to suffer? stop forcing your politics on an innocent baby

Brown skin is beautiful.

So many shades of heaven.

When the sun touches us, it looks like we have been kissed by the Gods.

Brown skin.

I love brown skin.

crazy alternate universe: straight white men in power that use their privilege for positive steps to promote in peace and equality, rather than to perpetuate racism, sexism, homophobia, and violence do so enough to where they are no longer privileged because they know that is actually the right thing to do

Wait… she got fired over her NATURAL hair or HAIR at all in the first place? what the hell is even going on?

He natural hair plus it being short

Man I’m not even going to lie when I applied for my current job I did my interviews with my hair pressed out and as soon as I was hired I started rockin my fro

^^ I got fired for this. The manager claimed that I was violating dress code daily, so I switched from tennis shoes to office shoes(9-10 hour shifts at Macy’s in flipping heels), and they still complained. So I switched from my polo shirts to blouses, they still complained. Then my mom said something that stuck to me: “when you were interviewed, your hair was straight”. So I straightened my hair and then NOTHING. I wore tennis shoes and a polo shirt, and they said /nothing/ about me violating dress code. So I essentially said fuck that and never straightened it again, so they fired me for dress code violation.

wooooow

I remember this. The guy who she defended herself against on Facebook was a racist asshole.
"Emmitt Vascocu wrote, “the black lady that does the news is a very nice lady.the only thing is she needs to wear a wig or grow some more hair. im not sure if she is a cancer patient. but still its not something myself that i think looks good on tv. what about letting someone a male have waist long hair do the news.what about that."
She had every right to say something back to him because his comments were disgusting. The network claims they fired her because she shouldn’t have personally responded to a viewer on the network’s Facebook, but her response was not rude and, for white people who perhaps don’t know it, educational. I’m glad she moved on to bigger and better things.

“Sometimes this really seems to shock people. They appear genuinely upset when I say ‘this conversation is over’ or ‘I’m actually not interested in debating this with you.’ There’s an expectation that if you care about social justice and political issues, you’re always ‘on.’ You’re always ready to debate, you’re always ready to have theoretical discussions about your own lived experiences and the issues you care about, you’re always ready to defend yourself. That’s manifestly ridiculous and unjust, an expectation that’s simply not reasonable.”

I honestly can’t believe this right now. I was complaining to my bf about some Kotex tampons I had used, going on a bit of a rant about how bad they were, and on a whim I decided to go to the website and leave a review so other people who might get them would know better.
I’ve never written a tampon review in my life (it’s not something I ever anticipated doing) so I had a little fun getting very passionate about my thoughts, and then went to submit…. Only to receive the words: ‘Your review text contains inappropriate language.’ I was confused at first, I mean I was pretty emphatic, but I didn’t cuss at all… and then I realized: I had typed the word ‘vagina.’ 

You can’t type the word ‘vagina’ on a TAMPON review because it’s considered inappropriate.

KOTEX, a company that makes OVER A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR primarily selling products to people with vaginas, thinks that someone typing the word “VAGINA” in a review of a product that goes IN THEIR VAGINA is being inappropriate and needs to be censored.

I retyped “v*gina” with an asterisk like it was a swear word, submitted and it went to preview mode with no problem. But I’m still kind of in shock… Honestly, what is wrong with Kotex that they think they need to protect tampon users from the word ‘vagina’?

If you didn’t think our society’s fear of the vagina was absurd, here you go. It’s cartoonish.

Kotex makes me feel sick. They’re awful.

Who cares about the whole “ALL WHITE PEOPLE” thing?
We all fuckin know that nobody is saying every single white person.
But if you’re offended by that, then you’re probably one of those people.

"All my ex-girlfriends are Asian."

If you’ve ever come across this charming come-on, you’ve probably been exposed to yellow fever

YES, THERE IS NOW A MUCH NEEDED GIF SET FOR THIS!

I removed the word rant from the link, because I felt it dismissive of what she was actually trying to communicate.
