TRIGGER WARNING: RAPE, SUICIDE, SELF-HARM
Most of my followers know that on September 20, 2013 I was raped in my dorm in Centennial Hall at The University of Minnesota-Twin Cities by an acquaintance I had met in my first couple of weeks on college campus as a freshman. His name is Levi Carstensen…
liberal feminism is sort of interesting in how much jargon and many buzz words it can pack any analysis of anything and cheerfully come up with the conclusion “but I guess some woman might find it powerful so who are we to judge! feminism is about having choices!”
like, you’ve got to admire how that analysis stretches from media consumption to CEOs
Since im seeing a LOT of these fail hebrew tattoos (they either dont write a word or they make meaningless sentences) anyone who wants to make a hebrew tattoo is invited to send me a message with what they want to write and ill type it for them…
Please dont use google translate for something thats gonna stay on your body till you die!

Even if the Hebrew were correct, these Jews clearly don’t want a Jewish burial.
For future reference.
For those who would ever need it. -C
reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship
Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.
If you google ‘Eric Garner’ I guarantee you that almost every article by major media outlets will list some or all of the following: Garner’s height, weight, his (alleged) past criminal history, and that the police supposedly thought he was “illegally” selling cigarettes. And all this information will be in the first few paragraphs.
Here’s what most corporate news outlets won’t make so readily available (you may have to dig for it): precisely how many officers ganged up on Garner, their complete police histories, any crimes they may have committed in their personal lives, and not even the names of all the involved officer’s are listed. And you may or may not have read that Garner clearly said he couldn’t breathe at least six times, and that multiple witnesses said Garner had just arrived on scene and broken up an altercation.
The media is hardly objective and they begin covering for the police and victimizing the victim very early on. These lopsided “facts” and seemingly minor omissions is only the beginning. Wait until it goes to court. Then you won’t believe how much news outlets, the police and defense attorneys will demonize Mr. Garner.
Unless you’re Black. Then this is an all too familiar pattern."
From Emmett Till to Rodney King to The Central Park Five to Oscar Grant to Amadou Diallo to Sean Bell to Trayvon Martin to Renisha McBride to Jonathan Ferrell to Jordan Davis to Eric Garner and so very many others…even though we’re always unarmed, there is never a shortage of disproportionately White juries eager to conclude that the act of merely existing while Black is always sufficient justification for inflicting brutality, imprisonment or murder onto any unfamiliar Black bodies
Seems like it’s always the same old song and dance whenever Black people seek justice from the system made to imprison us: Criminalizing Blackness — White people may commit crimes, but Black people are always viewed as criminals.
What a day for a road trip.
Like all mythology, that of the criminally bad Black mother spread through storytelling—lurid tales told with bitter resentment. Haven’t you heard...”

- Anonymous said:In NZ prostitution was legalised in 2003. A study in 2008 found the number of sex workers had not gone up, nor had rates of sex-trafficking. Sex workers are now safer. The bottom line on decriminalization is that it is a means of harm reduction.
