This is the first time in over six months I’ve felt comfortable with my nudity; I’m not disgusted by my breasts. I can look at them and not feel like crying. It’s a good feeling.P.S: Please don’t post this on super sexual blogs. This photo is not about me trying to turn someone on, even that is a byproduct. I like the way I look, and I wanted to post it. At least ask before reblogging, please.
trial and error
"We can’t keep raising generations of kids of color on the notion that there’s only room for them to be bad guys or doomed sidekicks or another generation of white kids thinking they’re closer to God because of how they look. We can’t keep promoting hetero/cis-normative sexist and racist ideas in our literature. That is the default setting. If you aren’t consciously working against it, you are working for it. Neutrality is not an option, and the luxury of thinking it is has to go."
A lack of empathy isn’t cool or interesting or intelligent. It’s a maladaptive coping mechanism, nothing more or less, and it’s probably why you’re miserable.
"Cultural appropriation often perpetuates inaccurate stereotypes about People of Color - what most white people think they know about Native Americans often comes from inaccurate stereotypes of a monolithic culture involving teepees, sweat lodges, and dream catchers. When these inaccurate stereotypes are perpetuated, they create a mold that white people demand People of Color fit into. When People of Color don’t fit those stereotypes, they are often ridiculed, attacked, dismissed, and marginalized for not fitting into a white person’s inaccurate idea of what it means to be a Person of Color."
"cishet is a slur" lmfao do you hold your breath and recoil every time you hear that word, do you associate it with violence, do you fear for your life when you hear it tumbling out of someone’s mouth, do you have to listen to people you thought were your friends using it like it’s a joke, has anyone been killed over that word, has it been used to oppress and harm you for centuries? no i didn’t fucking think so grow up

“Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison.
Because of this, we had no delinquents.
Without a prison, there can be no delinquents.
We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves.
When someone was so poor that he couldn’t afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift.
We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property.
We didn’t know any kind of money and consequently, the value of a human being was not determined by his wealth.
We had no written laws laid down, no lawyers, no politicians, therefore we were not able to cheat and swindle one another.
We were really in bad shape before the white men arrived and I don’t know how to explain how we were able to manage without these fundamental things that (so they tell us) are so necessary for a civilized society.”
Nothing will fuck up your twenties more than thinking you’re supposed to have your shit together.
