kemetic-dreams:

Same tactics used on Africa and the Americas! Afrakans now kill ourselves culturally,spiritually and physically! Afrakans are ashamed of the own names,spirituality and culture! And now are offended when Europeans deny them, they are outraged! Remember when most afrakans were freed they went back to there slave masters! And native Americans turnt Hispanics!

White supremacy is such a fucking pervasive disease. Decolonise.

Being fat carries with it a lot of cultural baggage. At the same time, fat people, especially fat women, are supposed to pretend we don’t exist or that we’re not fat. I can’t count the number of times thin people have made reference to fat people or fatness in a negative or joking way in front of me, from the petite woman sitting next to me at the coffee shop complaining about fat people on airplanes, to my friends who routinely make jokes about their “inner fat kids” coming out when they eat a lot, to the women in my family who compete to see who can look the thinnest in family photos. Sometimes it feels like I’m not even there, or that I’m not supposed to be. - Lisa C. Knisely

Patriarchy is not men. Patriarchy is a system in which both women and men participate. It privileges, inter alia, the interests of boys and men over the bodily integrity, autonomy, and dignity of girls and women. It is subtle, insidious, and never more dangerous than when women passionately deny that they themselves are engaging in it. This abnormal obsession with women’s faces and bodies has become so normal that we…have internalized patriarchy almost seamlessly.

I work in domestic violence and one of my clients was murdered last week by her partner with five kids in the house between the ages of 4-16 and I just don’t know how to cope with any of it anymore.

If you’re protesting abortion, the Supreme Court says you can get right in women’s faces and scream at them on their way into the clinic. Because freedom of speech.

But if you try and protest the murder of a black man, you get tear gas fired at you.
