The reason women are turning you down for casual sex seems to be that, for one thing, a lot of you are calling them sluts afterward. Also, a lot of you aren’t bothering to try to be good in bed.

Rest in peace to my favorite artist. Her demons may have gotten the best of her but her music helps me to beat mine. Bbygirl 💖

If you can’t sort something out yourself then no one can help you.

Why does my womanhood embarrass you?
when I am made up of the same biological factors,
that allow you to stand here today.
You do not know what wonders course through my blood,
and live in my bones.
I have never seen a man nurse a child,
and I have never seen a mans stomach swell with life either.
So next time you insult my womanhood,
remember my words,
and remember that you have no right.
You are simply a man.

“People waste way too much energy taking things personally. That Facebook post is probably not about you. It was probably an accident that you weren’t tagged in that picture. And the person you’re dating is probably acting sad because that’s how they respond to setbacks at work, not because of anything you did.”

Isn’t amazing how people don’t give a shit about misogyny until they can accuse muslims of it in order to justify their islamaphobia?

how come when it comes to other children it’s not ok because “they’re just children”

but when it comes to blue ivy, because of her black textured hair, it’s ok for us to crack jokes and call the two year old things like “bastard”?

On the morning of September 4, 1957, fifteen-year-old Dorothy Counts set out on a harrowing path toward Harding High, where-as the first African American to attend the all-white school – she was greeted by a jeering swarm of boys who spat, threw trash, and yelled epithets at her as she entered the building.

Charlotte Observer photographer Don Sturkey captured the ugly incident on film, and in the days that followed, the searing image appeared not just in the local paper but in newspapers around the world.

People everywhere were transfixed by the girl in the photograph who stood tall, her five-foot-ten-inch frame towering nobly above the mob that trailed her. There, in black and white, was evidence of the brutality of racism, a sinister force that had led children to torment another child while adults stood by. While the images display a lot of evils: prejudice, ignorance, racism, sexism, inequality, it also captures true strength, determination, courage and inspiration.

Here she is, age 70, still absolutely elegant and poised.

she deserves to be re-blogged. 

she’s so goddamned inspirational

this makes me want to cry

She and Ruby make me want to cry out of anger and admiration. They are/were so strong !!! I truly admire them and all the others with untold stories similar to theirs.
