one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’

no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty

Always reblog this because becoming more socially aware makes you dislike a lot of people

you guys must be fun at parties

you aren’t invited to this party

Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014
Both by Dan Bagan

Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.
Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”
Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.
These are women are who I always wanted to be.

Let’s not forget that these ladies are STILL out there grinding on the front lines for feminism.

This is a video where muslim youtubers Adam Saleh and Sheikh Akbar test what will happen if they have an argument in western clothes vs having an argument in their traditional clothes. The first argument is fine. Nothing happens. But as you can see, the minute they have an argument with their traditional clothes, the police officer stops them and searches them. This shows the prejudice of police officers. It shows how racist they are.

"Why are you dressed like this."

this is why its offensive when white people wear middle eastern or southeast asian cultural garb for exotic uniqueness. It literally changes everyone’s perception of us and makes our lives more dangerous.
