ok so its been a few hours so ive finally cooled down from possibly the most sanctifying thing ive ever been to!!!!!!
so angela davis came to my school for a lecture and yall i already knew this from videos but she has the cutest most soothing voice. she so sweet too like everyone portrays her as always angry and serious (i wonder why lol) but she was joking with us and kept worrying if she was boring us (which she wasnt!!) and idk shes so nice
anyway she talked about the history of SNCC and the panthers and then she talked about the present, and yaaaaaaallllll she PREACHED to us I have a video everyone got their life
I tried to memorize my favorite quotes but a couple are a lil paraphrased:
-[after saying her next topic was feminism] “Now, I’m not talking that Hillary Clinton feminism, that ‘lets penetrate the glass ceiling’ feminism…I’m talking about feminism that takes work…to penetrate the glass ceiling you have to already be up high enough to touch it, what Hillary Clinton forgot was all the other women still at the bottom.”
She also talked about heavily genderized white feminism (she didn’t directly name the Womens Marchers with the pussy grabs back shirts but it was implied lol)
-“Trans people, especially trans people of color, especially trans WOMEN of color, are the most targeted by state and socially sanctioned violence.”
“[After asking us if the school had done anything for the Black Panther 50th anniversary and all of us laughing/saying no] Some parts of the movement are assimilated into American history–the civil rights narrative and accepted, while others are completely marginalized!”
-“When you really look at the history of social movements, you’ll quickly find that most of the work was done by women! By black women! Queer black women!”
-“I’ve noticed recently that the notion of 'self-care’ has become more talked about, and that makes me so happy…the key to sustainable social movements is remembering to provide self-care. We need holistic movements. We can’t just provide self-care on the individual level, but on a widespread level. I’ve seen time and time again people dedicating their whole lives to the cause, always fighting, and never remembering to take care of themselves. They work and work themselves to death, and get so burned out they end up quitting! That’s what causes so many movements to end.”
-“Our movements need intellectuals. Not just taught intellectuals, but organic intellectuals! Intellectuals from fine institutions such as this, of course, but also intellectuals from prison! Who work blue collar jobs! They can provide just as much wisdom, if not more, about tackling institutions such as the prison industrial complex.”
-“Who here has been called racist after saying that black lives matter? [Most of us raise our hands] Why is that? Why do they go 'no, all lives matter!!’ so quickly? Why can’t we say we matter?”
-(my personal favorite) “I don’t see myself as an icon. I just see myself as someone who (and forgive me I forgot the exact wording) wanted to join the action…Ya see, back in the day, when I’d tell people I was on the FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted list, they’d get a little scared. Today, when I say that, people cheer! That just goes to show you the span of history and how so much has changed.”
There’s so much more she said but I can’t remember the wording, but it was so good and afterwards on my way to the bathroom she walked by and she smiled at me!!! I froze but smiled back. If my goofy ass had remembered to speak I couldve asked her so many questions I want to die ajsedkfn
I was just watching a compilation of animals freaking kids out, and this one little boy started bawling because a butterfly landed on his car seat and he was frightened by it. I feel like that's how Jonathan's little boy would be: absolutely adorable (literally the cutest kid anyone's ever seen in their lives) and an absolute marshmallow. Jonathan would always remind him that he doesn't have to like sports or rough things like the other boys, it's okay if he's more soft and sweet than them.
i’m the one bawling at this hc because i love it so much jesus christ
Dominic McKinnon and Evelyn Lightwood have been together for a couple years now, and could not be happier. They own a comfortable home in in a nice neighbourhood Willow Creek, where they live with their little, but wonderful family.
As a teenager, Dom had been pretty adamant about being a bachelor in his adult years, scoffing at the mention of a future in the suburbs, but it took one look at Eve one night in a bar for him to change that philosophy.
Dom has a little girl named Harmony, who’s mother was a short-term fling, and isn’t around much. Really, Eve is Harmony’s mum in every way but blood.
Eve and Dominic also have a little boy, Kellan, who is an absolute angel. He looks just like his dad and is the cutest little thing ever!
i always think abt yoongi always complaining abt being both a big and little spoon. like whenever he's the big spoon he's complaining abt ur hair tickling his nose, and the numbness in his arm when u fall asleep on it. but then he goes and complains abt being a little spoon too, saying it's too hot, and he always has neck cramps. but then u see his happy little smiles when ur arms are wrapped around his hips, or his around urs. and u know he secretly likes all of it. (idk im just so so f t djsk)
this..was the cutest thing I have ever read ever
I feel my sins melting away
he would do this, no question. yoongi would always act like he was bothered by whatever cute and cuddly situation he was in, but deep down he would love every second of it.
just imagine him spouting his usual complaints one day, and it happens to get to you a bit so you remove yourself from his touch. just think how quick he’d pull you back, trying to convince you with merely his actions that all he ever wants is to be near you
[if you're still taking requests] Could you do a smutty Bucky x reader ( or original female character & she is deaf so they use sign language to communicate but cause Bucky never hears her voice since she chooses not to use it, when he hears her moan and stuff during sex it turns him on like a lot XD thanks <3
OMG THIS IS THE CUTEST/HOTTEST THING IVE SEEN! I’d be honored fam (’: ❤❤❤😊😊😊
I have a thing for Yuri plisetsky throwing up to the point of making himself cry but he still blinks back his tears and insists he's fine in a tough-laced broken voice. And trying to talk makes him gag a little and whatever person taking care of him is just like "shhh shh... I know.." just to shush him and he feels even more like a baby which annoys him and makes him try to shoo the person away even more X'D
Argh! M-my heart…
I love this so much, seriously, it’s the cutest thing ever.
I can imagine Yuri or Viktor looking after him, shushing him and stroking his hair while he fights and tries to push them off, but even as he’s doing that he doesn’t want to be left alone.
Yurio is just too adorable.
