Once my mum looked at me in wonder and said “I wish I had known that being Maori was a good thing when I was your age” and I think about that a lot. She and her sisters were brought up lying about their indigenous heritage and rejecting all ties to the culture because of how pervasive racism is in…

Androgyny at its finest right here.


This caption infuriates me. Androgyny is so much more than just a thin, white person with no breasts and short hair. Androgyny, from my perspective, is the blending of masculine and feminine elements in any and all forms. Androgyny isn’t looking male, it’s looking like a human who expresses both masculinity and creates new gender options. It doesn’t just apply white male standards of attractiveness to female bodies but works to broaden the shades of gray.
These folks have the kind of androgyny I’m talking about:

how would y’all define androgyny in a way that’s more inclusive?


reblogging for the fantastic commentary.

"It pisses me off so much when people take the elevator to the second floor."

REMINDER:
-Disabilities are not always visible.
-You don’t know the circumstances which led to the person taking the elevator to the 2nd floor. Maybe they’ve pulled some all nighters, maybe leg day was intense, maybe they JUST WANT TO TAKE THE ELEVATOR.
-Whether they take the elevator to the second floor or the stairs has no bearing on their validity as a person.
-Ultimately it is not your business or place to judge them either way.

I’d like to correct this:
“God, send us someone to cure AIDS, cancer, etc., etc.”
“I did, but you gave them a substandard education because they lived in an area with poor funding due to low property taxes.  
I did, but you let them die because they couldn’t afford healthcare.  
I did, but due to racism you stomped out their potential and didn’t give them the same opportunities.  
I did, but you make a college education too unaffordable while giving the big bankers passes.
I did, but you saw a homeless youth before you saw a kid with potential.  
I did, but you kicked the downtrodden while they were already shoulder deep in sinking sand.”

I did, but you forced her to carry an unwanted pregnancy to term, forcing her to become a single mother with limited income, having to sacrifice her college dreams in order to provide for her unwanted child.

fucking BOOM ^

"healthy living" is a bourgeois construct to victim blame the working class for not being motivated to eat and live healthy after being forced to work exorbitant hours that takes up a majority of their life. only the rich can afford to be healthy.

Also it shames and marginalises people with disabilities and chronic illness and a whole shit ton more problematic stuff too. Fuck the concept of “healthy living”.

For years now, and thanks to decades of commendable work by groups such as Child Poverty Action Group, the term ‘child poverty’ has increasingly emerged in my facebook feed, frequented our newspapers and dripped from the lips of earnest soap-boxing politicians traversing campaign trails. A…

lets talk about how the gender neutral wardrobe is boyish clothes because feminine clothes aren’t considered neutral

and it’s totally connected with the idea that men are the default
