"Go back to Mexico!"

whitepeoplestealingculture:

A neighbor once aggressively shouted at my mother to “go back to Mexico”. Just like that, no filters no discretion, just blatant racism.

She doesn’t have an accent and I’m sure Mexican clothes nowadays are just as westernized as the U.S or Canada…

But wait. Her…

It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America.

This is one of my favorite quotes about sexualization/objectification vs autonomy of female bodies bc it’s so succinct

(via platonicsbeforeerotics)

Yet men just casually walk around topless.

The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.

'…It was very, very sad because I loved him so much. I'd just been through cancer with Linda and here I was going through it all over again with a mate of 50 years. He wasn't my immediate family but he almost was. He'd always felt like my little brother.'

He takes a breath, focuses on a point in the distance, mutters ‘What a lovely boy’ then carries on.

'The last time I met him, he was very sick and I held his hand for four hours. As I was doing it I was thinking “I've never held his hand before, ever. This is not what two Liverpool fellas do, no matter how well you know each other.” I kept thinking, “he's going to smack me here.” But he didn't. He just stroked my hand with his thumb and I thought “Ah, this is OK, this is life. It's tough but it's lovely. That's how it is.” I knew George before I knew any of the others and I loved that man. I'm so proud to have known him. Still, as sad as it was, you take the great bit, which was that last time you saw him, and that's what you remember. That and all the other lovely memories.'

FUCK ANTI RAPE NAIL POLISH

Ok sorry I tried to scroll past this shit but I can’t. I assume you are referring to the nail polish that was created to detect date rape drugs in drinks. If so what in the fuck is wrong with that. What is wrong with a woman protecting herself? Yes rape culture is a real thing and it is a problem that needs to be fixed. Are you suggesting that women continue to be drugged and raped until men learn rape is not a woman’s fault? Are you suggesting that a woman who is raped by a stranger is less traumatized and is more easily blamed than a woman who is raped by someone she knows. You my friend are seriously wrong. You are part of the problem.

I have been raped. I can decide if I don’t like this or not. It’s a useful tool. I still don’t like that we need it. Fuck the fuck off my goddamn blog.

There’s also the fact that it’s not super effective (it’s even reacted around milk, and then failed to react to the actual drug it’s supposed to detect) and only checks against one of the many drugs people use to rape.
