The Inner Ramblings Of My Mind

I remember talking to my mother and seeing Snow White and wondering if there’d ever be Chocolate Brown or something like that. But my parents were very good at making sure I had dolls that looked like me, and books with brown children in them, and birthday cards with brown children on them. They were very aware. When you discount a child from fantasy, it’s a very strong statement. You think, Wow, somebody made an entire movie with elves, and trees that talk, and things that fly, and there was no room for me.

Is everyone else now thinking of a story for Chocolate Brown?

AND SHE’S A TERRIBLE RAPPER

reblogging again because the last two tweets are why i don’t feel the need to protect her against misogyny. she’s a female misogynist and slut-shamer. has she apologized for those or what?

Redditor AL0311 posted this picture of his friend dressed up as Ray Rice on Sunday, writing, “My friend came to the party as Ray Rice.”

“Ladies were falling for my friends Ray Rice costume,” he wrote in a second post today.

This is fucking disgusting. What part of a woman being KNOCKED OUT UNCONSCIOUS is funny/appropriate for Halloween? Stop.

This man has a name.  His name is Frank Embree.

He was falsely accused of raping a 14-year-old white girl.

Embree maintained his innocence but confessed after receiving over 100 lashes.

With tears pouring down his face, he agreed to own up to the charges if the police agreed not to torture him any further.

He was castrated, skinned (front and back), lynched and burned alive in front of a cheering crowd on July 23, 1889.

Never Forget.

If you are American this is your history, don’t ignore it. Make sure that you make up for it by changing America today.

Fiona Apple

—Fast As You Can

sickwithlackofbasis:

Fast As You Can - Fiona Apple

"I kept thinking about why Fiona Apple scares people so much. And she does scare people - to the extent that she represents female fury and honesty about how much relationships can ruin you, and also actual mental illness, with her alleged eating disorders and frequent disappearances and occasional interviews where she talks about being raped and not giving a shit what people think.

If Fiona Apple were a man, her idiosyncrasies would be chalked up to her being unique, quirky, wild. She would be Tom Waits. Her strangeness would be part of the package, celebrated. But because she’s a woman she’s “unstable” and “depressed” and “crazy.” I’ve read articles that imply that men should watch out for Fiona, because she clearly hates men and sings about the bad things they do………Why is there such a fine line between angry and crazy for women?

When I was a teenage girl who didn’t understand why boys were so stupid all the time, why they treated me like shit, I empathized with Fiona singing oh darling it’s so sweet you think you know how crazy how crazy I am, but that song (“Fast As You Can”) isn’t really about being crazy. It’s about being made to feel like you’re crazy because you’re pissed off.” (x)

Two MSU basketball players raped a woman in the dorms then one admitted to it. Their only consequence was that they had to move out of the dorms. This picture is of me and one other woman holding up this banner during Midnight Madness. Two other brave souls had a banner on the other side for a while before some jerk started playing tug or war with them over it. This was taken before we got booed at by 10,000 people and police escorted from the stadium. 

How screwed up are people to boo at this? 

Let’s keep reposting this. Rapists should be charged.

how is sport more important than the lives of women? like honestly baffling
