I’m fucking tired of people controlling my feminism. I’m fucking tired of people telling me that my anger puts people off. Regardless of the fact that I like it. Regardless of the fact that my anger drives me to even get up the courage to work and live and thrive in this mans world. My anger is a little ball inside of me that is for me to control, for me to use for my purposes, and not for anyone else to comment on or try to minimize. I’m fucking tired of white women who don’t know shit but their goddamned easy middle class lives telling me that I can’t let strangers have so much control over me. Out here negating my experiences and telling my that my anger serves no purpose. My anger protects me from becoming you. And if that is all it ever did, I would still be an angry bitch. (Her words, not mine)
Tumblr has taught me more about feminism, women rights, rape culture, slut shaming, etc, more than school ever had. And there is something wrong with that.

Miss NomadManifesto, you are EVERYTHING. Thank you.
Trying to dismantle all the horrific shit that we all imbibe from day one, internally, is one thing. One really fucking difficult, fucking worthwhile, slow ass process of self-care that is continuous and lifelong. And I’ve just started. But trying to apply these things to your people, ones who haven’t made these discoveries and due to their circumstances and privilege, not only feel like they don’t have to, but further, feel like these things and ideas are a waste of time/irrelevant/not worthwhile in the world they live in is the most frustrating thing in the world.
And then to go on and say that Dorner deserved to be burned alive by the LAPD because he “didn’t want a trial” is just like, how do you even live with yourself and your beliefs?
Please help Matilda!
This breaks my heart! Puppy-millers that call themselves breeders let such sweetest darling doggies to become a mess and simply dump them at the shelters after they’re done with these poor souls.
Matilda is one of these victims. She is still young, but her body and spirit are broken. This sweet English bulldog has never known love in her life before the rescue. She has ear infection, a nasty bacterial skin infection, severe hip dysplasia, her breathing is very bad and on the top of all these she is underweight. But there is hope… and upcoming hip surgery as soon as this brave girl gains some strength. SMRS team is trying to raise $3000 to cover the medical costs for Matilda’s treatment. They are already more than half way there.
Please donate and share her story.
Here is the link for the FundRaiser:
I just donated $10. It was all I could right now but I want Matilda to become a healthy, happy dog and if you can spare anything, please do!!!
I respect the working class and the people who have no jobs, from the poor to the teachers, thank you and love earth - Lil B
“a few bad apples”
my fat ass; the whole fucking
orchard is rotten.
My fucking family were arguing this with me last night when I was saying that it was disgusting that LAPD were just opening fire on people. They used the “adrenaline, not knowing what things in people’s hands are, being in the moment” to SAY ITS OKAY FOR THE COPS TO MURDER 400+ PEOPLE PER YEAR. Fuck my family man, fuck these liberals.
French Bulldog Village has pulled out a sad little momma frenchie and her 7 mixed babies that have been dumped at a local shelter. Sadly all pups have parvo, an infection that affects the gasstrointestinal or cardiac systems of dogs. Parvo is a highly contagious and often sudden. It can be especially severe in puppies that are not protected by maternal antibodies or vaccination.
Parvo is very expensive to treat and with 7 babies this is a tall order.
Please concider donating to help this little frenchie family make it through their hardest times.
Any donation is better than none.
http://frenchbulldogvillage.net/donate-to-french-bulldog-rescue/ (please specify that this is for momma dog and pups with parvo).
French Bulldog Village is a reputable rescue who has saved many french bulldogs and gave them a new happy life with forever families.
“By remaining vigilant against those who seek to perpetrate violence and murder, we honor those we lost during one of the darkest periods in human history. And we keep their memory alive for generations to come.” —President Obama on International Holocaust Remembrance Day
It must be really awkward to stay vigilant against oneself because YOU ARE PERPETRATING VIOLENCE AND MURDER AGAINST INNOCENT CIVILIANS!
but if this gets 16,000 notes, my homophobic parents will come to my wedding. I know the click of a button isn’t that convincing, but if it gets enough notes, I’m going to type up the names & show them how many people support same-sex marriages.
this needs more notes
