"When people like Cliven Bundy assert the primacy of the past it is important that we do not recount it selectively. American enslavement is the destruction of the black body for profit. That is the past that Cliven Bundy believes “the Negro” to have been better off in. He is, regrettably, not alone."

Ta-Nehisi Coates, on Cliven Bundy, slavery, and racism in America. (via theatlantic)

Anonymous asked: how were you raped? you don't have to say anything if you don't want to, but I always found that sharing my story helped me get over my own trauma <3

I’ll spare you the details and just say that on several different circumstances at several different ages of my life, men exploited my vulnerability or mistook my silence as consent. Survivor solidarity.

What each state would be called if we honored our native roots

 The very geography of the U.S. reflects how mercilessly our government crushed the over 500 indigenous groups who’d built societies, civilizations and raised generations of families long before Europeans invaded.
The map above is a good illustration of where these tribes once prospered. It supposes how the “lower 48” might have looked if current state territories mirrored the pre-Columbian names of the indigenous groups who lived in the vicinity.

""I love women," is not a get out of jail free card. Thicke pulled the same bullshit when he was accused of degrading women in "Blurred Lines": "When we made the song, we had nothing but the most respect for women," he said. How nice of you to say so, Mr. Thicke. Alas, your work shows the opposite to be true. I am fairly certain many of the men who buy sex and consume porn also think they do it because they really, really, love women. NOPE. You love women like I love wine — as something I consume selfishly for my personal benefit and as a product."

Meghan Murphy (No, “female-appreciation” is not the same thing as feminism)

You say that it’s not an abusive/unhealthy relationship because you’ve “never once laid a hand on her.” But I’m going to go out on a limb and say that if you’re shouting at her to die at 8 AM, it’s not a healthy situation. Your yardstick of abuse starts with physical abuse, but you have no idea how badly it hurts her to hear you call her a bitch.
