The reason Canadians are so nice is easily explained. Once a year, on the sixth full moon all Canadian’s gather beneath the stars and perform a ritual that sucks all their meanness and cruelty and places it in Canadian Geese.
^ this, tho… the message in these ridiculous dress codes remains “boys deserve an undistracted education, and you-GIRL-are a distraction… and your education comes second. You should be grateful, anyway… it’s really more than you deserve.” and i actually am not going to repeat how it reinforces rape culture because really, i’m just so damn tired of the messages we send young women about being nothing more than an accesory in a man’s life… fuck that. and fuck awful myopic dress codes… (via ginandbird)
This parent is right. The school is sending a message that girls’ clothes are supposed to distract boys; that boys can use them as an excuse, that girls when assaulted should blame themselves because they must have worn the wrong thing, because their clothes made them unfit to mingle with their peers. Have I got that right? (rhetorical)
“You never get to the point where you think “I am the adult”, but you do get to the point where you think “I’ve dealt with this before.” The older you get, the higher and higher the percentage is of things you’ve already been through. Have you ever changed a tire? Had a flat tire? Someday, you might, and the next time it happens, you’ll know what to do, since you’ve already done it.”—
-My dad. I’m 24, and asked if you ever shake the feeling of not being an adult, and this was his response. Probably the most comforting thing he could have said.
so that video of the black lady beating up the white lady in the bank came on my dash again made me remember when
my mom beat the brakes off this white lady in macys when i was little cause she left me to hold her spot in line this white lady came up behind me in line and when my mom came back and stood next to me the white lady was like " what are you doing ? you cant do that? you have to go to the back" my mom was like i left him here to hold my spot… the lady was like “ill call security” my mom was like call em
then the white lady goes “ugh just like you people you have no home training” my mom was like that was out of line, please miss I just wanna buy my clothes and go home so be quiet, white lady points her finger in my moms face and goes "why dont you go back to your projects and food stamps and stop cutting hard working people who actually have money in lines" then i guess the white lady moved her finger forward and like poked my mom in the eye accidentally my mom said fuck it
gave her 3 pieces and a biscuit for free like popeyes was giving out free samples
white lady feel to the floor and hanging on too my mom pants leg and was screaming "oh my god call the cops"
my mom dropped the clothes and we ran out the mall like we stole something
we aiiin eeiin get caught and we went back to macy’s 3 days later and got the stuff we wanted
