When people walk to my interpreter after my class and say, “Bless you for doing this for her.” I felt like I have to hold back my interpreter from lashing out:

When I was a senior in high school I had a blind friend and when we spent a full day and night hanging out together at Relay for Life, she held lightly onto my elbow and said I was “Beth Driving.” I called it “the blonde leading the blind” because I am a dork. Anyhow she’d gone to take a nap and I was reading outside our tent and one of our sponsors thanked me for “looking after” Beth. “I don’t babysit freshmen, okay? I’m just hanging out with a friend.”

Feminism means every woman has the right to choose how she wants to dress..

Don’t tell other women how to dress, mind your own fucking business!

“Judgments”

I took this last year, but in retrospect, I think it’s my strongest piece from high school.

Working on this project really made me examine my own opinions, preconceptions and prejudices about “slutty” women and women who choose to cover all of their skin alike. I used to assume that all women who wore Hijabs were being oppressed, slut-shame, and look down on and judge any woman who didn’t express her sexuality in a way that found appropriate.

I’d like to think I’m more open now.

When the girls dress like the boys x white tie and tails VIII. Marlene Dietrich understood men’s clothes better than most men. And style wise she was far ahead of her time. In a time in which women were more or less stuck to skirts and dresses, she started raiding the male wardrobe to add to her collection of dresses and gowns. She had her men’s tailors, shirtmakers and cobblers (she frequented quite a few) make her suits, blazers, sports coats, shirts and custom made trousers. But only Knize in Vienna and Eddie Schmidt in Hollywood made her many tails. Fun trivia: Dietrich’s starched shirt cuffs were directly attached with a hidden buttoned fastening in the sleeve of her dress suits. So she wore sleeveless shirts with her tailcoat, that allowed for quick costume changes and slimmer, more feminely cut jacket sleeves. And while costume jewelry was always worn with stage costumes, for Marlene’s favorite white tie and tails, the cuff links were always her own- from Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels or Trabert & Hoeffer.

Some Marlene to class up your day.

Signal Boost the shit out of this if you will. This makes my stomach turn.

Think Progress reports that SB234, Tennessee’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill is back ,and more harmful than ever. It also contains language indicating that teachers or counselors would be required to out LGBT students to their parents.

LOL REALLY? 
WOW. TALK ABOUT CAUSING AN INSANELY UNDUE AMOUNT OF STRESS, ANXIETY, ETC.

I personally didn’t tell anyone but my closest friends at school for a long time…. A LONG TIME!

This is fucking disgusting. 

Seriously?

How is this even okay?

How does something like this get approved.

I hate humanity.

I’m terrified that this doesn’t have more notes.

THIS IS A BIG DEAL PEOPLE. 40% OF HOMELESS YOUTH ARE LGBT KIDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  BECAUSE THEIR HOME IS UNSAFE FOR THEM. 

REBLOG THIS SHIT. IT ISN’T OKAY.

Raise your voice. Speak up. Don’t just reblog, spread this everywhere and fucking call the Tennessee state government up.

No. Fuck no.
