"SIT LIKE A LADY"
Sept. 10 has been designated as a day of “Internet Slowdown” in the Battle for Net Neutrality. All day, prominent websites and organizations — from the ACLU, WordPress.com, Vimeo, Meetup and Kickstarter — have added messages to their websites asking visitors to contact their lawmakers and the Federal Communications Commission in support of net neutrality.
Today one of my friends was dress coded for her bra strap showing and so she wrote on the gym shirt that they gave her. It reads “Dress Code: promotes the objectification and sexualization of young bodies, blames the wearer for the onlooker’s perceptions/actions, perpetuates rape culture, and is bullshit” On the back she wrote “You can’t shame me for something I’m not ashamed for”. It was really cool seeing all of the people’s reactions who saw it and I thought what she did was pretty cool.
YES YOUNG WOMEN STANDING UP FOR THEMSELVES
I blinked one day and when I opened my eyes, it was normal to have an American army battling Americans on American streets. No one even calls it a war. But it is.
Don’t forget this crazy shit actually happened.
Don’t forget this shit is STILL happening
We Are Not Victims: Quechan People, Suicide, and the Redskins
(NOTE: TODAY IS WORLD SUICIDE PREVENTION DAY. SUICIDE HAS HAD A DEVASTATING EFFECT ON NATIVE COMMUNITIES. TALKING ABOUT SUICIDE AND LEARNING HOW OUR FAMILIES FEEL ABOUT IT WON’T HURT—IT WILL ONLY HELP. THESE ARE CONVERSATIONS THAT WE DESPERATELY NEED TO HAVE WITHIN OUR COMMUNITIES AND OUR FAMILIES.
This is so sad. :(
so young….Call me sensitive, but watching things like this makes me tear up. I used to be like this.
baby no :(
This truly hurts my heart. This is why racism will NEVER affect white people in the same way. Racism has destroyed our mindset, and that is why racism is such a powerful weapon. Once you’re in someone’s head, the outcomes are damn near incurable.
We don’t have to go through any of it alone. We’re family.
