This is the country we now live in.




Fucking good
They’re violating the constitution and human rights

I’m just not sure how many queer folk actually want to get married by ministers like this

Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014

Both by Dan Bagan

Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.

Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”

Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.

These are women are who I always wanted to be.

One thing I hate about Project Runway is how the models are treated by everyone like they’re objects. 

“In the longer term, as we rightly move toward universal Internet access, we need to ask: How much of ourselves are we willing to give away? What happens when sharing becomes mandatory – when giving access to a personal Facebook account is a job requirement, and health services are withheld unless a patient submits their historical Fitbit data?” Your Data or Your Life (via azspot)

I just want attention from someone who never cares for my presence. How wasted is my life. 


Poetry of the day


"Let there be spaces in your togetherness, and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, and the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow."

Khalil Gibran

New comic!

Yeah, I might have watched a movie and gotten kind of mad.

This is seriously a trope I’d love to never see again though.

was the movie you watched ‘wanted’ because

also the lego movie… also the matrix… 

guardians of the galaxy…


You know that awkward moment when you’re with two friends, and you see them stand next to each other and think they would make an adorable couple… and then moments later they start holding hands… and you realize you haven’t paid attention for the past few months… freak out and stop talking … make them uncomfortable… they stop holding hands… excuse yourself… and then you know the snowball to avalanche effect.


Can we trade lives please.

  • Guard: What about humility? Isn't it a virtue?
  • Inmate: It is. One of the highest. People in power are always saying so.

Today someone called me cool. Uh…

So, I’ve kept this secret list of articles/pics/youTube links that I’ve saved and updated for years waiting for the ideal time to fire one out in the absolutely perfect manner that will make the person(s) think damn this chica knows how to seamlessly integrate relevant and hilarious knowledge into a conversation. A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to send the first one ever, and I did, very very very very excitedly waiting for a response on how magnificent this youtube link was. Yes, I used the pull-down on my GMail app waiting for a new email to pop-up with accolades on how wonderful of a human being I am.

There was no response.
I’ve since been suffering from a slight existential crisis.

May God Help them Ameen

When you find your path, you will also find your love story. People today are consumed by doubts about their relationships: Have I found the right partner? Am I being true to myself? Have I given the best part of myself away? As a result, there is a restless kind of consumer shopping for partners, as if the “right” one can be found by toting up a potential mate’s pluses and minuses until the number of pluses matches some mythical standard. The path to love, however, is never about externals. However good or bad you feel about your relationship, the person you are with at this moment is the “right” person, because he or she is a mirror of who you are inside. Our culture hasn’t taught us this (as it has failed to teach us so much about spiritual realities). When you struggle with your partner, you are struggling with yourself. Every fault you see in them touches a denied weakness in yourself. Every conflict you wage is an excuse not to face a conflict within. The path to love therefore clears up a monumental mistake that millions of people make—the mistake that someone “out there” is going to give (or take) something that is not already yours. When you truly find love, you find yourself.
Therefore the path to love isn’t a choice, for all of us must find out who we are. This is our spiritual destiny. The path can be postponed; you can lose faith in it or even despair that love exists at all. None of that is permanent; only the path is. Doubt reflects the ego, which is bound in time and space; love reflects God, eternal divine essence. The ultimate promise on the path to love is that you will walk in the light of a truth extending beyond any truth your mind presently knows.” Deepak Chopra (via mindofataurus)
I don’t think I agree with this but it’s still a beautiful sentiment
