you just blow raspberries on each others stomach all night and call it quits when your lips go numb
loitering is basically the illegal act of existing while not spending money
isn’t capitalism fun
boys are fucking stupid
rip his fucking head off
…and then shit on his neck forreal
NO NO I BOY AND YOU GIRL AND WHEN I SAY JUMP YOU SAY HOW HIGH
i just told my mom i died at birth and i’ve been a ghost this entire time just growing and manifesting into the daughter she’d lost
and she’s just like
well please go to the light because i am tired of your shit
So i have this giant pencil right
I think we all know where this is going.
the amount of people saying that they were expecting me to shove it up my ass is alarming
Nobody gives the black girl mob credit for being smart as fuck. They clown but at the end of the day they are really intelligent.
And it’s not subtle at all.
Taystee is a math prodigy in addition to being well-read, Poussey is multilingual, Cindy just knows shit, Suzanne studies Shakespeare, Watson was a good student in addition to being a track star, Vee is basically an evil genius. Piper often learns the most from them; they taught her how to fight and helped translate Pennsatucky’s biblical threat.
The show flat out acknowledges the (academic) intelligence of the black inmates time and time again, but the audience collectively ignores it.
ALL OF THIS
Why are some women like “I’m not a feminist I believe men and women should be equal” like ???????? YOU LITERALLY JUST DEFINED FEMINISM???¿?¿?
From their announcement:
For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.
We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.
Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.
do we need more young queer characters? yes.
do we need more young queer characters that hate themselves and keep wishing they were straight and/or cis? no. we really don’t.
People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.
this is why i’m raising ella to do whatever makes her happy. i believe in skinned knees, dirty hands, climbing as high as she can, the curiosity of space and how everything works. i will never let her believe that being a girl is holding her back from anything. i will never get tired of her asking, “what’s that?” or sitting with her for 15 minutes while she watches how machinery works in our every day adventures, as i do my best to explain what it all means. this is important. my patience in her curiosity and ability to achieve has already made a huge impact in her life. ella will be 2 years old on friday and already tells herself, “i got it” when faced with a new challenge and “i did it!” when she accomplishes it.
raise your daughters to be self-aware beyond their looks. raise your daughters to always be curious. raise your daughters to work hard. raise your daughters to have passions that make them happy. raise your daughters to be whatever the fuck they want to be.
This is so important
I do not agree with your opinion.
Black man are demonized in all contexts in western society, right down to their hair. They do need a movement. Statics show that white men with a criminal record are more likely to be hired than a black men with the right qualifications.
Western society doesn’t allow black men to emote or express themselves through their appearance.
They do feel the pressure even thought they might not express it. That pressure may turn into self hate and that self hate is then projected to black women.
A vast majority of black men won’t go 14 days without going to the shop to scrub their hair off so something gotta be up you know……
My Uncle will not go more than 2 weeks without getting a haircut. His job doesn’t allow “long hair”, yet he has two white male co workers who have ponytails.
the sound of teenage girls laughing near you when you’re by yourself is literally the most terrifying thing a person can experience
basically i dont care if you drink smoke or do drugs as long as you can hold a conversation about something besides the fact that you drink smoke or do drugs
don’t buy your girl flowers. flowers die. buy her a potted cactus
Fun fact about cacti: you have to give them 1 teaspoon of water per week. If you give them more, they will die
