nice people are rare we must protect them at all costs
A gay couple in Oklahoma found a way to bypass the state’s same-sex marriage ban by obtaining a marriage license from the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes on October 18. Since state laws do not apply on sovereign Native-American land, Jason Pickel called the tribe after the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act to inquire if he and his boyfriend Darren Black Bear could get married. Both Pickel and Black Bear are members of the tribe and the marriage was allowed because the tribe’s legal code does not specify gender. Read The Stream’s storify on the event here.
Y’all better work around that white supremacist and heterosexist bullshit, yaaaassss
Queer indigenous people fighting two fronts like the badasses they are.
being privileged is not a get-out-of-jail card that you can play whenever people are trying to educate you.
you do not have to be a minority to understand that the minority deals with shit that you never will have to and that you should not speak for them because they have their own voices and experiences. you do not have to be a minority to fight for their cause, just don’t silence them in the process.
there is literally no excuse for ignorance in this day and age. we have google. we have people that can share their stories. there is a goddamn plethora of information out there at your disposal. the only reason you continue to be ignorant is because you simply choose not to learn, under the excuse that ‘my privilege makes me unable to understaaaand weeeeh’
thats a piss-poor “excuse”. shut your goddamn mouth and start learning.
there is no GREY AREA in feminism. there is nothing UP FOR DISCUSSION in ACTUAL feminism which is not the same as RADICAL FEMINISM. FEMINISTS do not in fact HATE all men and want them to ALL DIE. RADICAL FEMINISTS generally do, as well as being TRANSPHOBIC and also saying really gross stupid shit about RAPE. FEMINISM is LITERALLY EQUALITY. if you cannot understand this VERY SIMPLE FACT, you have a REAL PROBLEM.
FEMINISTS do in fact want to address things like uh SEXISM and RAPE CULTURE and VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN and THE WAGE GAP and STEREOTYPING and being BODY POSITIVE and SEX POSITIVE and being INCLUSIVE TO ALL WOMEN of EVERY SHAPE SIZE ETHNICITY SEXUALITY ETC. feminists do not exist to only SHIT ON MEN. they only do that when men are SHITTING ON THEM AND BEING SEXIST.
making a generalization about the group of people oppressing them is not BEING ANTI-MEN.
if you are unable to acknowledge your privilege and realize that when feminists are complaining about men, they are NOT INSULTING YOU SPECIFICALLY, you need to GET OVER YOURSELF. also, feminists are not averse to talking about problems that INCLUDE MEN, such as BIAS IN CHILD CUSTODY, and SEXUAL ABUSE, and OTHER SHIT TOO.
feminism is LITERALLY A MOVEMENT THAT WANTS EQUALITY. if you have a problem with that, WHAT THE FUCK. this is NOT UP FOR DISCUSSION. EQUALITY IS GOOD. GET OVER YOURSELF AND REALIZE THAT YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM BY SAYING THE SHIT THAT YOU SAY. PLEASE
I’ve been artistically null for months; my desire and motivation to create have run almost completely dry
now that I have five exams between tomorrow and next friday literally ALL I want to do is make things
clearly my inspiration continues to go hand-in-hand with my stress levels and the amount of free time I have (or don’t have, perhaps)
