"Black and Third World people are expected to educate white people as to our humanity. Women are expected to educate men. Lesbians and gay men are expected to educate the heterosexual world. The oppressors maintain their position and evade their responsibility for their own actions. There is a constant drain of energy which might be better used in redefining ourselves and devising realistic scenarios for altering the present and constructing the future."

We absolutely LOVE the new #LikeAGirl video/campaign from P&G and Always, which seeks to change the connotations behind the phrase, “You [verb] like a girl.”

Mentally ill people are not the problem. Inaccessible, unaffordable health care is the problem. Stigma is the problem. Lack of treatment is a problem. Lack of understanding is the problem. Lack of compassion is the problem. Not taking people seriously is the problem. Lack of honest conversation and open dialogue is a problem. Using jails as a housing facility for mentally ill persons is a problem. Do you understand me?

newwavefeminism

newwavefeminism:

Everyone: why is she with him if he treats her so wrong and/or is so abusive? She needs to leave, or her daughter is going to grow up getting mistreated because of her.
No One: why does he mistreat the two women in his life that should mean the most to him? He needs to either get his act together or let his wife and/or children move on and heal
