OMG

I’ve met a guy who can sustain a conversation with me while we both speak exclusively in Mary Poppins innuendos. I think I’m in love.

September 28, 1948: Eleanor Speaks in Favor of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights
On this day in 1948, United Nations delegate and former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt delivered a speech in Paris entitled, “The Struggle for Human Rights.” Her goal was to create a sense of unity among nations through the common principles of the Declaration, a document that she helped draft and approve. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was approved by the UN General Assembly that December.
Learn more about all the Roosevelts with preview videos from Ken Burns’s The Roosevelts.

Why do you all assume guys are pro rape?

oh my fucking god shut up. She never said y’all are pro rape, but have you ever been to a high school or middle school? Boys are making rape jokes whenever they can and they think it’s hilarious but whenever a girl says she’s on her period y’all get uncomfortable. We understand that all men aren’t this way but she is talking about the ones who are. Chill.

Let down your guard. Feel. Experience. Live. So, you can get hurt, so what? You’re getting hurt by having that guard up right? So, what’s the difference?

Whenever I hear the "Women are paid $.78 for the man’s $1" I flip it around.

Men make $1.22 for every woman’s $1.

It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …

bisexual activist and queer theory blogger Patrick RichardsFink 

this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1

A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes

A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes

A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes

A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes

A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes

That’s some bullshit right there.

Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.

Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.

when you turn thirteen and want to paint your nails black
I’ll rummage through an old drawer and give you my own polish.
when you look at me and say, “momma, I’m lost.”
I’ll turn you towards the mirror
and say, “run darlin’, don’t ever let them find you.”

when the first day of high school comes
and you hurry to get out of the car with nerves in hand I’ll tell you,
“don’t run, walk slow. you’ll make it through.”
when you go on your first date I’ll remember my first date.
I’ll remember the look on my own mother’s face
when he didn’t open my car door
and baby, if he doesn’t open the car door remember your momma saying, “he doesn’t get to open anything else either.”

one day that boy will break your heart
and when you lock yourself in your room
I’ll buy you a journal, a brand new pen, a 2 liter of strawberry soda
and a potted violet with a note saying something like,
“white oleanders are poisonous and so is heartache.
violets symbolize something that I’ve since forgotten
and strawberry soda drowns the salt in your tears.”

one day you’ll pack your things,
I’ll write you letters and send you candles in the mail.
you’ll marry young or maybe old.
you’ll have a daughter of your own and watch the sun rise in her eyes.
just remember to never look up what violets symbolize
and when she looks at you with tears in her eyes
saying, “momma, I’m lost.”
turn her towards the mirror
and say, “run darlin’, don’t ever let them find you.”

and when they say you’re too much soul for one person,
remember the white oleanders.-dah (via whisperingbones)
