I had forgotten how funny deviantart is just to observe passively. I just saw a guy try to talk smack about “freedom of speech means people can comment on your art and you gotta take it” and their avatar is a my little pony wearing shades with the words “deal with it” and their gallery is nothing but traced MLP bases that they’re trying to sell as adoptables for money

You can’t just start the clock on 9/11 and forget 50 years of unjust oppressive Western foreign policies in the Middle East.

Thank God someone finally said this. I’m so sick of stating that Western intervention and invasion of other countries fuels terrorism only for people to respond 'They did 9/11 first!' 

In 1953 the UK & the US staged a coup of the democratically elected leader of Iran and installed a dictator who was more to their liking. Today the US continues to support brutal dictators (such as in Saudi Arabia) where it suits them to do so. Palestine has been occupied for decades. The list of Western imperial foreign policies over the past decades could go on and on.

9/11 was not only only a result religious extremism and it certainly was not because 'they hate our freedoms.' Terrorism is often primarily politically motivated and anyone who is serious about preventing it had better take some fucking notice of this fact.

That’s something I literally can’t get over. How plantations aren’t viewed as sites of genocide and as representative of some of the most extreme evil humanity has ever done. 

You can visit a plantation and they won’t even talk about slavery. It’s common to get married on plantations.

Being a Californian this was all very off-putting to me when I visited Georgia. I love Black people and Black culture in the South but it’s still the South. 

Fat Girls in Summer

sweet-gherkins:

Fat girls in summer

should not be forced into shorts

that hang like potato sacks

down to kneecaps

and over meaty thighs. 

Fat girls in summer

should cut those frumpy frocks

until the hem is shorter 

and jagged

and lets them fucking breathe.

Fat girls in summer

should not let themselves

be covered

or draped

or ignored.

Not by people nor clothes.
