Exams are roughing me up y'all. // I went to YouTube to find a good video about intersectionality to share here but instead I found that seriously misleading video starring Ben Shapiro. This is actually the first time I've watched that video and it's so frustrating how wrong he is. Intersectionality is not about placing yourself in as many "victim groups" as possible. It's not about erasing individual experiences but about recognizing individual experiences. The whole point is to stop generalizing large groups and be able to recognize the unique problems within smaller groups. For example, White Feminism™ often assumes that all women face the same oppression under patriarchy, which is not true. A woman with a visible disability may not be as sexualized as able-bodied woman are, or, on the hand, she may be fetishized. This can depend on her disability, her financial situation, her gender identity and expression, her sexuality, etc. Shapiro's explanation is so shallow, damaging, and flat out incorrect. . . .

Who else feels like they can relate to this? I know I get discouraged easily because of things that are out of my control. But the thing about getting knocked down is that you can learn how to get back up, and each time we overcome something hard in our lives we get stronger 💪🏽 be soft, get hurt! You can only learn from your mistakes 💕
i absolutely love reading and i love it even more when there is diverse, canon representation in the book. it’s the most wonderful feeling in the world when you read a book and can so strongly relate to a character. plus size characters, lgbtq+ characters who’s sexualities/gender are not the main plot point or who’s sexualities/gender are what the story is about. characters with mental illnesses or characters with any type of disability. poc characters who’s story doesn’t revolve around that aspect of themselves. jewish or muslim or non-christian characters. casual representation is IMPORTANT but so is significant representation that leads the story. diverse representation in children’s books can teach kids early on that being different isn’t bad, whether they are represented in the story or not. especially canon representation. you can’t just tweet something 5 years later about how there was a single gay or jewish character in your book(ahem not directed at any author specifically😐😉). so yeah, thank you for coming to my ted talk, ily all also i’m curious comment 📚 below if you read the whole caption pls • • • • tags(ignore) #feminist #feminism #lgbt #love #equality #activism #woman #girlpower #bodypositive #pride #selflove #resist #equalrights #womanempowerment #democrat #genderequality #lgbtpride #downwiththepatriarchy #intersectionalfeminism #intersectionality #loveislove #prochoice #blacklivesmatter #equalityforall #nohomophobia #activist #speakout #timesup #lgbtq
We live in a world where as women our bodies seem to have a price, money value. Many females (a lot underage) are forced into prostitution against their will. If you thought slavery no longer existed, you were wrong. Human trafficking is considered modern day slavery. Women are raped numerous times daily, riped out of their homes, threatened, abused physically/emotionally, deprived of their freedom, etc. All their rights are violated. We must come together to fight this inhuman "business". World Human Rights Day. #illustration #feminism #feminist #intersectionalfeminism #humanrights #womenrights

from @isaidwhutisaid and sent in by a follower: “Hey the number of that Principal Julie Rikard, who suspended two students for speaking spanish in class, is easily researchable. Her actions are disgusting, and indefensible. This is why the US constitutionally doesn't have an official language, to avoid this type of blatant discrimination that seems so rampant nowadays. She does not deserve to be an educator. I encourage yourself and others to tell her so: 704-476-8330” let’s make this woman pay -c - - - Hotlines: Suicide Prevention Hotline 1(800)273-8255 National Sexual Assault Hotline 1(800)656-HOPE (4673) National Domestic Violence Hotline 1(800)799-SAFE Eating Disorders Awareness and Prevention 1(800)931-2237 SAGA Helpline 1(800)398-GAYS S.A.F.E (Self Abuse Finally Ends) 1(800)DONT-CUT Fake Phone Number for Harassers 1(646)926-6614 - - - Hashtags #feminism #intersectional #equality #blm #prochoice #LGBT #saga #lgbtq #feminist #equal #intersectionalfeminism #socialjustice #equalityforall #activism #liberty #freedom #justice #shitholepresident #unitedwestand #defenddaca #socialjusticewarrior #leftist #leftwing #liberal #ibelieveher

This is from the Fluoride Action Network (FAN) who is suing the EPA for the water fluoridation program. My opinion on fluoride? It sucks. It’s an important issue to me so I will post more about it in the future.

This right here man... someone had to say it , because no one wants to talk about this stuff. This country/president really just sweeps everything all under the rug, lies about it, and its sickening. So many people dont want to believe these realities. And if you dont believe in White privilege here it is: If the WORST thing that can happen to you is being accused of being a racist, just imagine how bad it must be for the group or groups you are oppressing. The more you know 🤦🏻‍♀️

Health care is a human right. #Regram from @pppswhealth Today marks 70 years since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. A milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights which everyone is inherently entitled to as a human being -- regardless of race, color, religion, sex, language, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. The principles enshrined in the Declaration are as relevant today as they were when it was adopted in 1948. Today we honor the work that has been done and continue the work left to do to make all humans equal. ✊🏿✊🏾✊🏽✊🏼✊🏻 #HumanRightsDay . . #HumanRightsDay2018 #HumanRights #StandUp4HumanRights #ReproRightsAreHumanRights #ReproductiveJustice #IntersectionalFeminism #Equality #MondayMotivation #standwithppm #IStandWithPP #PlannedParenthood

This post just reminded me of the german word "vergangenheitsbewältigung", which loosely translates to the collective guilt of the German people regarding their past, specifically the Holocaust.

When someone asks me what I want for #Christmas 🎄 Other options: Pay a bill. Socks. Cash. My childhood back. Cash, mostly. Impeachment would be ok too.
I very clearly remember posting another similar story a couple months ago. I’m gonna try and see if this is the same one or that ppl just really suck -m

Why is it when a man rapes someone(even there own daughter) they get off easier and with a much lighter sentence then when a 16 year old girl kills a man that was trying to rape her when she's also already a victim of sex trafficking #feminism #intersectionality #intersectionalfeminism #feminist #cyntoiabrown #injustice #rapeculture #whiteprivilege
[Trigger warning] ° ° ° I CAN'T BELIEVE WE ARE STILL LETTING THIS BULL CRAP HAPPEN. WE DEMAND JUSTICE. This is a good example of the racist, classist, and sexist society we live in.

Celery juice 🌱 Do you have to truly believe in something in order for it to work? I don’t doubt that celery juice is likely beneficial—I mean, it’s a vegetable full of important minerals—but I’m usually skeptical of trends like this that claim to aid all ailments. Heals the liver? Clears eczema and acne? Cures cancer? Ooof. There is no magic pill. There is no magic juice. A holistic approach to wellness means looking at the whole picture: whole body, whole mind. Everything working together. But I decided to run a test experiment on myself, just to see what all the fuss is about. I’m on day four. And so far, I haven’t noticed anything different—nope, not even more bowel movements. Maybe it’s too soon to tell? To be honest, a part of me wishes it would be true, and would clear up my persistent perioral dermatitis that’s reared its head again this year. That and my dry, cracked lips (for which I’ve tried nearly every lip balm and supplement under the sun). It’s tiring to take such good care of my skin and not see a single result, month after month. Going to give it at least two weeks before I call it quits. It does “feel” good to drink something so vibrantly green in the mornings. What’s your experience with celery juice? Have you tried it, or do you avoid the hype?
