THIS ARTICLE, Y’ALL.
SERIOUS trigger warnings! For everything! For sexual assault, for revenge porn, for intense misogyny! I don’t even get triggered and this shit disturbed me so hard.
But it is so, so worth your time. Read this, please. Read this.
holy shit, this woman kicks major ass.
hardcore Mama Bear.
A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a “fake,” the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday.
Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country’s 11 official languages, according to the federation.
The unidentified man seen around the world on television next to leaders like U.S. President Barack Obama “was moving his hands around but there was no meaning in what he used his hands for,” said Bruno Druchen, the federation’s national director. (Photo: AP Photo/ Evan Vucci)
this is arguably a million times better than the original
so I’m in a black women’s studies class and we were learning about this gem by the artist kara walker
just george washington getting a blowjob nbd
"just george washington getting a blow job nbd"
So no, it’s not just George Washington getting a blow job, it’s George Washington raping a slave while sitting on the the neck of a slave. The contradictions of American independence with the institution of slavery are not to be trivialized! Like how are u in a Black Women’s Studies class and still are trivializing the rape and sexual trauma of black women. WTF! It’s rude for cheeky ironic neoliberal “feminists” who are out here trivializing and making a joke of the sexual trauma that is often erased in the narrative of American history.
this girl was in my class.
we spent 2 classes looking at kara walker’s work and a good 15-20 minutes discussing is piece alone.
and all she got from it…in the context of a class specifically about black feminism…was “just george washington geting a blobjob nbd”
Side eyeing this shit. For real
This is beyond disturbing. Please do not click the link unless you are prepared and have time to deal with being triggered.
The GOP has a plan to stop Wendy Davis: blatant voter suppression.
Women don’t like having their bodies policed, and are supporting Davis like no Democrat has been backed before. But Republicans aren’t fighting back on the issues — they’ve pushed through a Voter ID law that blocks the votes of countless Texas women.
Starting this November, Texans must show a photo ID with their up-to-date legal name instead of IDs like a birth certificate. That’s not a problem for single or married men — but it leaves a third of Texas women scrambling in a state with just 81 DMVs in its 254 counties.
The only way the GOP can keep Texas is by rigging the game. Women have the power to turn this state blue for the first time in two decades, but we need to help secure their rights first. Please, join us in calling on the Texas legislature to get rid of this unconstitutional Voter ID lawand stop trying to strip women of their votes.
DANGER! DANGER FOR TEXAS WOMEN!
when you pitch shift the interview between Sway and Kanye West a few semitones, it sounds eerily familiar so I made this
when you are under the word count for an essay
also if you aren’t 100% certain of someone’s gender, use they/them pronouns so that you don’t misgender them and look like an asshole! thanks
It’s incorrect to use they/them because that would be referring to multiple people instead of one. Use he/she because it’s grammatically correct when you’re referring to a single person.
that isn’t true
you could say “they are looking really wonderful tonight, they must have put on makeup” or something like that, and it would still refer to a singular person
also placing grammar prescriptivism before people’s emotions and requests means you’re shitty, sorry, it’s true, i dont make the rules
