Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014
Both by Dan Bagan
Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.
Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”
Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.
These are women are who I always wanted to be.
While I don’t know everyone in the crew, I know that Adie ( jack-spicer-o-lantern ) and Nick ( rivaintalisman ) are two of the best people I know. Adie is so sweet and cute and cool and will slay anyone who messes with them or their friends. And Nick is cool and kind and like Adie, he will slay anyone who messes with him or his friends. And I’m sure that the rest of the crew is the same.
Hi guys! ok so cass deleted their blog and chaz has the url now so anything being posted there is NOT CASS. Send me an ask for their new blog and please spread the word!
Someone can be asexual and not aromantic. Just because someone isn’t having sex doesn’t mean they can’t have a romantic relationship.
Someone can be aromantic but not asexual. Not all sex has to have romance attached to it.
Someone can be both aromantic and asexual and still have a fulfilling life because to assume someone needs to be in a relationship and/or have sex in order to be happy is really shitty.
i’m sex repulsed too. you have a fucking problem with me?
First off, anon: You are an asshole.
Secondly: Some people are sex repulsed, get fucking use to it.
Third: Honestly why should we care about what you have to say if you won’t come off anon? It’s like a stranger telling us why they don’t like what we’re doing.
Fourth: Just because someone doesn’t appeal to you, doesn’t mean they are ugly.
Scars don’t appeal to you? I’m sorry but a super computer running for 50,000 years could approach the number of fucks we do not give
you know what’s really ugly and not sexy? your disgusting taste b/c ashley is a fucking goddess
if you had to drop out of a class you are not a failure
if you had to take time off school you are not a failure
if you had to leave school for good you are not a failure
your worth is not determined by academia and this goes doubly so for disabled people and others for whom school is set against them
The great thing about music is it did not save your life
It gave you the strength and will power to save your own life
That’s the beauty of music
This is probably the most important thing I have read in the last 3 years of my life, thank you to whoever posted this.
