'I was beat/spanked/paddled and I turned out fine? See!' I would argue that you did not turn out fine, you turned into someone who thinks it is okay to hit a defenseless child when they do something wrong because you have power over someone smaller than you.

@chocopompcirc, "The Euphemism of Spanking (Hint: it’s actually assault)" (via sonofbaldwin)

Every time I’ve ever been presented with the “I turned out fine” argument it is from people who I know and can verify have not turned out “fine” in the sense that they struggle with emotional regulation, treating other people well, temper control, and other things that stem directly from being abused as children.

Taken from MANTRAS zine
This zine is a culmination of how i got myself thru/still getting myself thru things and also things that i love and things that make me happy, mostly Stevie Nicks. I hope i don’t come off as someone who has her shit together, most of this zine is me yelling at myself and it’s really difficult to follow the directions that i give to myself, like “TAKE WHAT’S YOURS” and “DON’T HIDE!” it’s very difficult and on most days i don’t follow these directions and i fail completely. But i still yell at myself because it’s necessary that i always have these things etched in me so i have something to hold on to when shit hits the fan. - Fabiola

Watch the trailer for M.I.A.’s controversial unreleased documentary before it’s pulled from the internet again. Reblog the shit out of this.

I love confident girls but confident boys are the devil because when a girl is confident she’s secure enough to compliment others but when a boy is confident he’s secure enough to treat girls like trash without fear of consequence.

Regular users of pornography are less likely to convict for a rape, and less likely to give a harsh sentence to a rapist if in fact convicted. Conversely, individuals who do not use pornography are more likely to convict an accused rapist.

terrorism has been occuring in this country by white people against Indigenous Australians every day since 1788. now the government are causing moral panic thru the media and police force; causing everyone to be racist xenophobes. nothin’ new here in this country: white people in power trying to shift blame, assert power, and cause fear against innocent PoC.
