I used to think
I was overreacting.

now I realize
it was just a

normal reaction
to an abnormal

amount of
bullshit.

This country is such a fucking joke. Did you know that if we were to divide the income in this country fairly it would be about 300,000 per person. That’s annually. You could give each person in this country 100,000 and still have enough to invest in infrastructure and research. Instead we have people who don’t have water, don’t have their basic human rights fulfilled, because they don’t have enough to pay a bill. 

Capitalism is inhumane.

pervocracy:

Really can’t stress enough how much being a survivor of abuse is not a job.  It does not come with any obligations.

If you don’t have the energy or ability—or simply don’t want—to become a politically active anti-abuse advocate, to warn everyone in your abuser’s path, to seek justice through the courts or otherwise?  You don’t have to.

You didn’t choose to be abused, so you didn’t take on any moral obligations that a non-survivor doesn’t have.

Truth.

Also abuser covers parents, rapists, domestic assaulters etc…

Your ‘job’ is healing, surviving and quite possibly thriving. It’s not being a living example to other people or a sudden public speaker etc… And stars know how hard it is to accept you DON’T have to be an example; your boundaries matter, your need for privacy is valid, wanting to just forget and just move on is a solid option.

ninalovesrammstein:

Can we stop perpetuating the idea that all rapists are mentally ill? Not only does it add fuel to the myth that mentally ill people are dangerous and scary, it also implies that we can’t hold rapists responsible for their actions. Rape is a premeditated act of violence and rapists know exactly what they’re doing.

Did you know that according the New York Times 87% of mass shootings in America are committed by Caucasian males between the ages of 13 to 56, yet White Americans tend to be fearful of young black males in hoodies.

Just because the Republican is more vocally, obviously and unapologetically racist doesn't mean there are no racist Democrats. Pretty much fuck all politicians. — Asked by Anonymous Asked by Anonymous portrait

yoisthisracist:

Yeah, nice try asshole, but pretending the bigotry of individual Democrats is in any way equivalent to the wholesale, overt and doctrinal racism of any conservative political movement is something that only profits racists.

I have some issues with some stuff XKCD has come out with, but damn if this isn’t the basis of all anti-sj thought, the idea that you can respect someone too much and be too considerate to them.

The Donald Sterling Situation

thechanelmuse:

So lemme get this straight.

America is stunned that a rich white man can have a black girlfriend (who he only sees as his delicate white girl or his delicate Latina whose caliente Mexican descent overrides her blackness), a white wife, and an empire built on the backs and sweat of his black 40 Million Dollar Slaves and still hate black people.

America is acting brand new like they never heard of the white master messing around with the house negro that he didn’t want associating with field negros while married to his white wife and building his empire off of field negros. 

Come on son.

White America is stunned that White America is still racist.

White America is stunned that White America is still racist.

Amerikkka doesn’t like black people, only black culture or the talents of black people that create white empires.

So Zimmerman has a hobby in boxing and was able to lift an suv long and high enough to rescue a family, but that strength and technique somehow disappeared when he was confronted with an unarmed teenager.
