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 💕
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".

I know i normally just post memes but damn... 😞
I always imagine every girl i meet has at least one story to tell...
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 🤦🏻♀️
Feminine Energy! #repost
I love seeing women embracing who they are! 🙌
We couldn’t agree more! 💃⠀
One of the greatest challenges while navigating through life is learning how to embrace change (especially when it isn’t welcome). What kind of changes are you experiencing? -the good and the bad-
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
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?
