In radical communities where we may assume someone’s credibility or even their reliability on the basis of their professed “politics,” interrogating privilege and power should go beyond writing an essay or winning a debate. It should materialize as a commitment to dismantling it within our personal relationships with the people we profess to care about. Look at the record of how they have treated you as their romantic partner, their friend, as a person who supposedly means something to them. If this does not match with their politics, ignore their public record and pay attention to their private one.

False rape accusations are an anomaly.

True rape accusations are a norm.

You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.

Re-blog now, read later.

"Because 1 in 33 men will be raped in his lifetime, men are 82,000x more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. It seems many of us would do well to pay more attention to how rape culture affects us all than be paranoid about false accusers.”

conservative men: misogynist poo with bible.
liberal men: misogynist poo with bong and porn.
leftist men: misogynist poo with copies of communist manifesto.

Depression is so isolating bc you don’t want to be a bother to anyone so you start doing really passive aggressive things to try and reach out, which makes you feel even worse so you end up quietly weeping in the bathroom and when someone knocks on the door you immediately hide yr face and clear yr throat and say “oh yeah, I’m fine.”

The Ferguson City Council convened for the first time since Mike Brown’s death, and proved that they literally give no fucks about what the community has to say. Added to their vague, paltry proposed reforms, seems real change will have to come in Ferguson via the ballot box. I don’t care where you live folks— let this be a lesson in voting/participating in your local elections and government! #staywoke #farfromover 

My people getting it!

these people are the real heroes. not the military, not politicians, not the Hollywood actors. they risked their lives and livelihoods to challenge white supremacy and institutionalized racism.

Aww-la THIS is newsworthy. But I guarantee you won’t see it on a station near you #StayWoke

HEEEEEELLLLL YEA
