Aargh!

I believe everyone deserves the same rights, and as a woman I've gone thru harassment and been put-down, but I'm not a feminist I don't think. how did you decide that you were a feminist? from blairefuckingwaldorf

iwriteaboutfeminism:

It wasn’t any one moment.

But the more I read about injustices against women, the more I wanted to do my part in fighting them. The more I came to notice patriarchy, misogyny, rape culture, etc. the more I had to speak out about it.

For me, that means writing. My feminism made me a journalist, and vice versa.

To me, being a feminist means that when you see or experience injustice you want to do something about it.

Last words of unarmed black youth gunned down by law enforcement. "There are reasons why white gun’s rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children’s toys. Guns aren’t for black people, either.”from America is Not For Black People
“…if you live your whole life and then die without making a purposeful choice to become a white ally then American racism becomes your legacy.”

Cop who killed Michael Brown started his career at disgraced unit that was DISBANDED over racial tensions - after officers opened fire on fleeing mother and child and beat up another woman
Darren Wilson was a rookie cop in Jennings, Missouri.
The small city had a majority of black citizens but an almost completely white police force.
The entire department was dismissed amid allegations of racial prejudice, unnecessary use of force lawsuits and corruption.

If you’re unemployed, it’s not because there isn’t any work.
Just look around: A housing shortage, crime, pollution; we need better schools and parks. Whatever our needs, they all require work. And as long as we have unsatisfied needs, there’s work to be done.
So ask yourself, what kind of world has work but no jobs? It’s a world where work is not related to satisfying our needs, a world where work is only related to satisfying the profit needs of business.
This country was not built by the huge corporations or government bureaucracies. It was built by people who work. And, it is working people who should control the work to be done. Yet, as long as employment is tied to somebody else’s profits, the work won’t get done.

Was expecting classist bullshit, got the exact opposite

This is so ubelievably important and I hate that I have to keep re-explaining it to people.

I was ready to be mad and then I was not hah
