Not in a sexual way like, just in case.
Because y’all like to make the absurdest pairings from memes

“the Civil Rights Movement was peaceful”

Bitch where?

Because I remember learning about Freedom Riders being killed, endless lynchings, dogs and hoses being set on children, and four little girls who died in a church bombing.

Oh, but I guess all that matters when you’re trying to use MLK to silence people talking about resistance now is to talk about this idealized image of how shit got done in the past.

The Civil Rights Movement wasn’t peaceful. It wasn’t nonviolent. Not for the people trying to fight for a right to be recognized as humans worthy of empathy and freedom.

The people fighting for their rights were subject to violence all the time and threatened.

When you talk about how peaceful that movement was as a way to silence or shame people now for anger at current injustice, you’re saying that your grasp of history probably begins and ends at “I have a dream”.

Michael Jackson’s daughter is speaking up about the shameful way the new movie Urban Myths has whitewashed her father’s identity

Paris Jackson didn’t take long to weigh in on the baldly ridiculous choice to have Joseph Fiennes portray her departed father, Michael. Joseph Fiennes is a white man. Michael Jackson was a Black man. Though the movie, Urban Myths, is plainly a farce designed for the maximum ridiculousness, the choice is offensive in a way that’s only worse for being so blithe and intentional.

happy new year everyone! uwu ive decided to take art seriously now that its finally 2007 and this is my first post of da year xDDD i really hope you like it<33

Just a PSA

Please ladies, don’t make fun of women who wear pads. Like, don’t call them a dipper butt or a child or anything thing else degrading for not inserting a tampon in their vagina.

Some of us can’t physically do it for medical reasons and it hurts to try and if you manage it, it’s just even more excruciating to pull out. A lot of women fear TSS that runs rampant when a tampon is inserted for too long. Other women like me do it because it’s more comfortable for us.

For whatever reason it is, don’t make fun of it!

It’s already enough that periods in modern day society are considered taboo and shameful to have in any way shape or form, we don’t need to feel bad about how we contain it too.

And here’s an extra link in case this is a little bit too small for you to read and such: http://imgur.com/a/fp0s4

Hope this helps you, anon! As well as anyone else out there~
Just don’t forget, you can take everything here with a grain of salt and change anything you wish, this is just how I relatively do it!! Art is flexible and fun, there are no limitations with it! You may see other artists that draw without guidelines but there are so many (including me) that do, there is nothing shameful about this as well as style mimicry!!! It’s a way to learn, grow, expand and better your understanding of basic fundamentals!!

Now get out there and have fun (or try haha!) ໒( ͡ᵔ ▾ ͡ᵔ )७

I would just like to take a moment to applaud Ariana fCKING Grande. This is a girl who’s at the top on her game in the music industry, and literally does her best with everything she puts out. She keeps getting slut shamed because of her songs, the way she dresses. She keeps being assumed to be a certain way and she taKES NONE OF IT. WHAT DOES SHE DO? PUTS OUT A FREAKING FIERCE ASS INTERLUDE VIDEO ON HER TOUR, “NOT ASKING FOR IT, LADYLIKE, FEMALE, HUMAN, SEXY, (was only part of the message)”. Not only does she clap BACK HONEY, but he does it in a way to INSPIRE. Not only that, I love how she doesn’t NEED PROPS ON HER TOUR. It’s so simple and good because of HER DAMN VOICE IS EVERYTHING YOU NEED AND NOTHING ELSE. Most artists need to rely on heavy props, flashy performances to cover up their lack of vocal skills so people focus on something else, BUT NOT ARIANA GRANDE, BITCH.

Sometimes “giving up” can be a valuable lesson. I’ve been thinking about this often lately during training - we are instructed to support our students in whatever challenges they set for themselves and not to pressure them into doing anything they’re significantly uncomfortable with. We let them set their own goals and don’t shame them for choosing not to climb all the way to the top of the rock wall, deciding not to ride the zipline, or backing out of going on the giant swing. Encouraging them to push their own boundaries is great, but push too hard and they won’t gain any psychological benefits from accomplishments.

I kind of wish I’d had more support like that as a kid. I was hard on myself. I refused to give up on anything, even when it made me utterly miserable or terrified. To this day, I have difficulty knowing where my boundaries are because I have almost always ignored them or pretended they didn’t exist. As much “strength of character” this may have created, it’s also put me in some really bad situations. Being able to “give up” and acknowledge that my personal feelings are as important as my goals and viable to change them has been very liberating.
