when kimberle crenshaw speaks, you fucking listen. this is the incredible black woman who is responsible for creating the term intersectionality.

Shit like this is (among other things) why I don’t trust our legal system to carry out the death penalty.

if anyone remembers the story that was making rounds a while back about a 19 year old discovering the solution to cleaning up the pacific garbage patch, that project launched a fundraider which now has 7 days to reach it’s goal.

Think before you eat encourage others to throw their lives away by posting your pro-ana shit all over the internet where vulnerable naive teenagers can read and imitate your illness

this needs more notes

This needs to be signal boosted so hard.

Imagine finding a dragon egg one day, and it hatches in your house and thinks you’re its mom. Then the next morning you wake up and find this mini dragon has gathered all the lose change and shiny objects in your house in a pile, and is gnawing on a nickel. And then when you take it out for walks, it picks up every coin it sees cause its a hoarder. And your house is eventually full of coins. And you are rich. And have a dragon.

They would put on these little shows and they’d make everybody watch, willingly and unwillingly and they sold tickets not only did you have to watch them but you had to pay…they were always entertaining, they were always putting on shows, they were singing and dancing, it’s just what they liked to do…that’s what they actually loved to do - Tina Knowles

Columbia University Student Will Drag Her Mattress Around Campus Until Her Rapist Is Gone

"I think the act of carrying something that is normally found in our bedroom out into the light is supposed to mirror the way I’ve talked to the media and talked to different news channels, etc," Emma continues in the full video which you can watch here.

21 year old transgender female Islan Nettles died after being savagely beaten to death by her attacker Paris Wilson. According to witnesses, Wilson was shouting homophobic and transphobic slurs before being pulled off the victim by police. Wilson only received misdemeanor assault charges that were dropped after only spending 10 hours in jail… Today he is walking free in New York City. He has not been charged with murder. Islan was an aspiring fashion designer who’s dreams were cut short by the same type of hate crimes that have taken the lives of countless other lgbt youth. Spread the word about this injustice and raise awareness about savage hate crimes like this towards lgbt youth. #Regram #Justice4Islan

Singer CeeLo Green took to Twitter today to make an attempt to define what rape is, shortly after pleading no contest for charges that he slipped a woman ecstasy without her consent in 2012

http://www.buzzfeed.com/rachelzarrell/cee-lo-green-says-its-only-rape-if-the-person-is-conscious?bffb

My n****.. Not you too.. Smh..

SMH dude essentially told on himself.  

Holy shit. Fuck you CeeLo

yeah… all of the above comments.

I am so disappointed and angry. I loved his music at almost every stage and for him to be a rapist just ruins all of that.

He is 100 percent not sorry. He is admitting that he indeed did rape a woman. God only knows how many other victims there are out there.

He’s married with children. Lord only knows what kind of abuse they have had to endure or victim blaming mindsets he has passed on to them.

I I hope they put him under the jail and the woman he raped get’s all the care she needs. He an afford it. She better have life paid for at his expense.

ugh ugh ugh

I guess it’s only murder if you’re conscious too? Don’t go to sleep man..don’t go to sleep

This cant be life smh…..

not you CeeLo, FUCK!
