About Me

My social justice type tumblr, or, things I find important as I become who I want to be.

Meeting Myself Again

the-treble:

1) The person replying is a father of three boys, one girl, and in the Air Force. He went on to share that status with all his friends as well.

2) The person replying is a former Marine, and currently university student. Also, a man.

3) The person replying is also a male former Marine, recently separated.

4) The person replying is one of my friends who is currently struggling to recover from rape.

Thank you to Tumblr for giving me excellent views and the words to articulate them with so I can share with others, especially those who aren’t a part of this site. One I didn’t share due to length because of so many replies was the “black women come in literally every shape, color, and size” by youngblackandvegan. In a response, one of my friends who is a man of color asked if black people could be racist against black people. I responded by saying that it wasn’t my place to speak with any authority on the black community, but I linked a couple pieces by black authors who spoke on internalized racism. He responded with “Thanks for the posts though, I learned something about myself.”

Don’t ever let anyone tell you that social media doesn’t make a difference. Each of these posts were from Tumblr. The last was a link that was circulating on here as well. Each of them have made a difference in the minds of at least the people who responded. Social media is powerful.

I look up to laverne cox so hard 

Welp tears

I always love re-blogging Laverne Cox. Not only because of her eloquence, intelligence, kindness, and beauty, but also because her voice might be one of the most important in the fight against hatred in the U.S.A. today. What she has to say is crucial to the growth, peace, prosperity, and freedom of all of us. If you have the time, please watch this video.

I need feminism because “Who hired a stripper” shouldn’t be the first thing said to me when I walk into a welding job.

women in trades are treated like such fucking shit. 

NO I’M STILL STUCK ON THIS WHY WOULD ANYONE SAY THIS TO A WOMAN HOLDING A BLOWTORCH

Anonymous asked: You know what I wish? That people weren't so caught up with labels, gay, straight, bisexual, "asexual" or whatever. Why can't people just be people. Just saying.

babebraham:

ugggghhh I am so tired of this argument or whatever, I really am

"labels are bad!! why can’t we all be people"

no. just. no. i mean, why can’t all animals be animals? why do we have cats and dogs and birds and then we have different kinds of cats and dogs and birds i mean why can’t they all just be animals???

all animals are equally cool but they’re not the same. and do you notice how incredible it is to observe their uniqueness? and just like animals tend to form communities with those who are similar to them, humans should too. and that’s not at to say at all that people shouldn’t interact with others who are different because obviously they should, but having a sense of belonging with others like you is important and beneficial!

yes, we’re all humans, but we’re not the same. i’m not like you! you’re not like your neighbor, and your neighbor isn’t like their neighbor, and so on! that’s amazing! we’re all so vastly different and it’s fucking cool.

He’s not the first gay guy in the NFL. He’s the first one to come out, let’s get that straight. Every team I’ve played on, there was someone… we always knew. But he was cool. That was our boy. We had to look out for him. Every team I’ve played on - five different teams - there was someone gay in the locker room.

Retired football star Deion Sanders, who played in the NFL for the Atlanta Falcons, the San Francisco 49ers, the Dallas Cowboys, the Washington Redskins and the Baltimore Ravens. He is, of course, talking about Michael Sam. This is so important. (via Gay Star News)

A Quote

For whatever reason, people really struggle with bisexuality being a thing. Unless you drop it into every conversation— “As a bisexual woman, I wish it would stop snowing”. “I’m feeling really overwhelmed and bisexual with all these work deadlines” —they will assume, ignore, and forget.
