straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bys, pretty much anywhere.

the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments.

Help save a 16 year-old trans girl of color from being put in a mens adult prison with NO crimes charged on her by emailing Commissioner Katz.

butchimightbe:

She has never been convicted of a crime but they want to move her to near isolation in an adult mens prison. This CANNOT happen. Here is a more in depth article: http://feministing.com/2014/04/14/how-the-connecticut-department-of-children-families-is-failing-a-trans-girl-of-color/

I put together an email for Commissioner Katz, so all you have to do is copy and paste it. Click here for the example email

Please reblog to raise awareness!

signal boost, please!

Peggielene Bartels, A.K.A. King Peggy, is currently the King of Otuam, Ghana. She was chosen to be one of only three female kings in Ghana, and when she discovered that male chauvinists wanted her to only be a figurehead, she said: “They were treating me like I am a second-class citizen because I am a woman. I said, ‘Hell no, you’re not going to do this to a woman!’” When she encountered corruption and the threat of embezzlement to the royal funds, she declared “I’m going to squeeze their balls so hard their eyes pop!”

King Peggy has maintained her work in Ghana’s embassy in Washington, D.C. while making education affordable in Otuam, installing borehead wells to produce clean drinking water, enforcing incarceration laws to deal with domestic violence, replenishing the royal coffers by taxing Otuam’s fishing industry to improve life in the village, and appointing three women to her council.

“Nobody should tell you, ‘You’re a woman, you can’t do it,’” she insists. “You can do it. Be ready to accept it when the calling comes.”

Quoted from the Spring/Summer 2012 issue of Ms. Magazine.

What a beautiful badass woman.

King Peggy has been on my blog before but this is my goddamn blog and I will have King Peggy on here twice if I want.

MORE FEMALE KINGS.

Always reblog King Peggy, who is on my dash far less than she should be. Did you know she has written a book about her life? It is great, and you should all get right on that if you haven’t already.

Hail King Peggy, bamf

I didn’t know this woman existed until this moment and I am so happy to find out. All hail King Peggy!

big el niño forecasted
i search the articles for info about when the last big event was, what year that was
97-98
where was florida? up in smoke

drought-tolerant plants
surface-level water-holding measures
shade-giving plants
build the soil
make humus

do the wild areas and parks know? are they on alert to clear out as many dead/dry limbs and scrub as possible?

brace yourself for fire or drought

well look at that, the other major el niño event the article mentioned was in 1982-83

guess what happens when you google “florida drought 1982”?

Racially based dating preferences are not made in a vacuum and I’m really tired of hearing that excuse

Because I have yet to hear an explanation about why someone doesn’t date a poc group that didn’t involve an extremely racist ass stereotype embedded in white supremacy and fetishism

Dating preferences are influenced by the white supremacist society we live in. When you are exposed to light, bright and white all your damn life, that shit is internalized.

just a few of the signs we made today for our rally on april 24 starting at 8:30AM! thanks to everyone who came out. 

these are fantastic!  i’m so excited to see femmepowered and open gates MHC create a similar campaign at mount holyoke.  i know both colleges are worried (to varying degrees) about reactions from alumnae, but this alumna supports you—and trans women’s inclusion—100%.

Get it

i don’t know about y’all and your digestive systems but i went from thinking i had the flu to the best bm i’ve passed in weeks—probably because i cut gluten out of my diet for a few days.

i learned my mom has an auto-immune disease of some kind and just had a conversation with a friend about him discovering he has celiac’s. it just makes sense to go ahead and do the seemingly inevitable thing. also, did i mention really healthy poops?

But, we quickly found out that sign was wrong. I seriously think that integration messed us up more than we know. We were doing just fine when we had our OWN situations. Our OWN communities, institutions, banks, shops, our own EVERYTHING. We didn’t need to integrate at all. All I know is I would have loved to go to schools with people that look like me, to be taught by elders that look like me. One of the main things that I think about is the quote by brother Malcolm that goes something like, “Why would you want your enemy to teach your children who they are?”.
