"skinny shaming"

some of y’all are truly tripping

folks in my fam been using our biggest, fattest cousin as a boogeyman for YEARS to control the weights and eating habits of the little girls in the family

"put down that slice of pizza or you’ll look like cousin so and…

Yes!! You hafta realize that if you fit the body type society deems as acceptable or attractive, you have privilege. Statistics show that over weight ppl are less likely to be chosen for jobs and even less likely to get into a graduate school that requires in person interviews for admission!

This year’s Hugo for Best Professional Artist went to Julie Dillon!
The heart of “Scholars’ Tower” is the great golden celestial globe, a tidy clockwork universe beset by controlled chaos. Books are jammed onto shelves in no particular order, overflow in messy piles on the floor. The cats go everywhere they please. The scholar in blue minds her step very carefully on the way down the stairs.

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

This is an important message on how privilege really works.

it’s good to remember that we shouldn’t only define ourselves by our marginalized identities. for example I am cis, I am middle class, I am educated, I speak English, I am a documented citizen—remember all of those identities you possess that give you privilege.

Always check your privilege. Everyone has one in some way

Apparently, in an attempt to paint Michael Brown as anything less than innocent, people have been spreading an image of an armed 17-year-old Joda Cain around the web and claiming that it’s Michael Brown.

Joda Cain is accused of murder in my home state of Oregon, and has literally jack shit to do with the Michael Brown murder in Ferguson, Missouri. THESE ARE NOT THE SAME PEOPLE. Anyone using the above image as “proof” that Michael Brown “deserved” to be shot should be called out for defamation, and promptly thrown down a spiral staircase. 

The bottom photo is the real Michael Brown. He was called a “gentle giant” by friends and family. He was unarmed and innocent, and he was murdered by a police officer after being shot more than seven times at close range. Witnesses, including a friend who was with him at the time of the shooting, all agree that he was doing nothing deserving of such violent actions from the officer who gunned him down.

47% of white people think race is getting more attention that it deserves in Ferguson

It’s one thing to disagree about the circumstances of the shooting death of Mike Brown, but it’s another entirely to pretend that the case truly lacks racial implications . Despite sustained protests and arrest statistics that prove Ferguson’s police department disproportionately targeted the town’s black community, four out of 10 whites don’t think that the resulting conversation about race and policing deserves as much attention as it’s gotten.
And it gets worse


And in breaking news, water is wet

So im watching the news and ofc, Ferguson and the riots are discussed. They have the “alleged friend of Darren Wilson” telling the news that this college bound 18 year old kid bumrushed an armed officer.

Its crazy how white ppl try to victimize themselves. Like, the 1st talk the men in my family have with their sons is how to deal with the police- that meant being polite as possible with your hands in the air. Because our men are not seen as human before they’re seen as criminals.

What kind of black man would rush at an armed white officer? None. That logic alone is baffling.

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air 2x09 - “Cased Up” (November 11, 1991)

Woooooow

But this is what our boys are taught for real though! That’s the talk when they get old enough, how to be compliant with the police because otherwise, our boys end up dead!
