Four White guys with multiple weapons were taken into custody. Not shot and kill and left out on the road. They were arrested and given due process. They’re names aren’t leaked. We’re not seeing invasions into their facebooks for impeding trials. We’re not even seeing mug shots. We don’t know if they’re anarchist, klan or anything at all. We just know they left the scene of an armed chase alive.
However an UNARMED black kid walking the streets of his neighborhood was shot 6 times by the police.
This is the difference, the racism and the outrage.
Post racial America my ass. #ferguson #racism

Egregious example of white supremacy:Police officers chase down and apprehend four white dudes with multiple weapons, no one is hurt. A disabled black man with a knife is shot down from 10 or more feet away because cops felt “threatened.”

Trigger warning for eating disorders/disordered eating, self harm and racism

This is a FANTASTIC article by one of our guest vloggers and all round wonderbabe, take care reading because parts can be triggering, but I found it really healing. 

I’m still really emotional about this. I wish I had the chance to read this when I was younger. 

In the 1890s, when Freud was in the dawn of his career, he was struck by how many of his female patients were revealing childhood [sexual] victimization to him. Freud concluded that child sexual abuse was one of the major causes of emotional disturbances in adult women and wrote a brilliant and humane paper called “The Aetiology of Hysteria.” However, rather than receiving acclaim from his colleagues for his ground-breaking insights, Freud met with scorn. He was ridiculed for believing that men of excellent reputation (most of his patients came from upstanding homes) could be perpetrators of incest.
Within a few years, Freud buckled under this heavy pressure and recanted his conclusions. In their place he proposed the “Oedipus complex,” which became the foundation of modern psychology… Freud used this construct to conclude that the episodes of abuse his clients had revealed to him had never taken place; they were simply fantasies of events the women had wished for… This construct started a hundred-year history in the mental health field of blaming victims for the abuse perpetrated on them and outright discrediting of women’s and children’s reports of mistreatment by men.

Why straight allies don’t belong in safe spaces

because then i’m forced to look around these spaces and go “i wonder how many of these people are straight” instead of being able to go “wow. look. people who are like me. i am not alone. amazing.”

hmm, yoga is kind of girly #nohomo let’s rename it so it sounds manlier and make it just for the bros for the bros only

It’s crazy how some feminists get mad when men take something stereotypically feminine and turn it into a new branch to incite more men to do it. Like good for them, they’re helping men stay healthy, what’s the problem with that?

listen here sweetie

Yoga was never, and will never be stereotypically feminine.

If the word “yoga” threatens your masculinity, then you must be a Republican.

So secure in their manhood that they have to add “bro” so their masculinity doesn’t shatter.

^^ that last one

stop romanticizing the idea of becoming so dependent on another human being that you cannot function adequately without their presence goodbye

When women scream you wonder what’s wrong with them. When men yell you get afraid about what they’re going to do.

A girl in my creative writing class said this in response to a story we read about witnessing intimate partner violence and it really fucked with my head because I’ve never, ever, ever, thought of it that way.  (via astronomized)
