Nonsensical ramblings of a strange girl.

Man gives change to homeless person, is handcuffed and held by police for an hour
Greg Snider was in a Houston, Texas parking lot, on the phone making a business call. While in the lot, a homeless man approached his car and asked forchange. Snider gave him 75 cents and then drove off. KPRC Local 2 News reported on the shocking thing that happened next.
When Snider pulled onto a nearby freeway, a police car pulled him to the side. Greg was surprised by how aggressive the officer was, telling KPRC, “He’s screaming. He’s yelling. He’s telling me to get out of the car. He’s telling me to put my hands on the hood…They’re like, ‘We saw you downtown. We saw what you did.’ And I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? I gave a homeless man 75 cents.’”
He was dragged out of his car and handcuffed. So what was it that police insisted Mr. Snider had done? Give that homeless man drugs. Again, he didn’t. Snider only gave the man some money.
Snider agreed to let police search his cars for drugs, and they did so for an hour while Greg remained handcuffed. In that time, ten more police cars showed up and pulled over. The search was not fruitful – no drugs were found in the car. That is, because, as previously mentioned, Snider didn’t have any drugs to give. Aside from the damage police did to his car, Snider isn’t happy that the police were actually laughing about the mistake.

Get fucked

all cops are pigs

EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS IS BEYOND WRONG AND COMPLETELY FUCKED UP!! NO ONE (ABSOLUTELY NO ONE) HAS THE RIGHT TO CHAIN UP/RESTRAIN ANOTHER PERSON AGAINST THEIR WILL, ESPECIALLY TO RUMMAGE THROUGH THEIR PROPERTY!!! Do not consent!

(Oh hey, I made a thing about a topic that’s important to me.)
“PRIVILEGE is when you think that something is not a problem because it’s not a problem for you personally.”
I feel like nowadays many people who say/do racist things (not necessarily intentionally) will never willingly admit to their ignorance, even when faced with irrefutable logic and reasoning ("But I’m not hurting anyone, how is it wrong?!"). LEMME EDUCATE YOU. Chances are, if you are defending something that a PoC identifies as racist, IT IS RACIST AND YOU SHOULD STOP DOING IT. IDFC WHAT ETHNICITY/NATIONALITY YOU ARE; JUST STOP. IDFC IF IT DOESN’T FIT WHAT YOUR DEFINITION OF “RACIST” IS; JUST STOP. IDFC IF YOU THINK YOU’RE BEING “APPRECIATIVE” OF A CULTURE, IF IT’S NOT YOUR CULTURE, YOU DON’T HAVE ANY BUSINESS TELLING PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY ARE OF THAT CULTURE, HOW TO FEEL ABOUT IT. JUST. STOP. And don’t bring the “well my friend is PoC and isn’t offended” excuse — ONE PERSON DOES NOT SPEAK FOR AN ENTIRE RACE JFC
Racism isn’t ONLY displayed in acts of violence, believe it or not. This is what internalized racism looks like. And if you don’t find any of this offensive even in the slightest, well, it just goes to show how thoroughly ingrained it has become in our society to overlook acts of racism if they aren’t “horrific” enough. I suggest you stop relying on your white dictionary definition of what you think racism is, and open your eyes.

im quitting tumblr

ok see u tomorrow

sister: we learned about martin luther king in school today
me: oh yeah? what did you learn
sister: that when the teacher talks about black people everyone looks at me

An open letter to the ‘nice guy’ who tried to hit me because I stopped him from taking home a drunk girl who was begging him to leave her alone (or: why you should never ask a poet if she’s really an ugly cocksucker or if that’s just her day job):

The thing is, everyone assumes that by taking away our rights, you make us weak.

In reality, just the opposite occurs. We are used to the sling of insults - there is nothing you can say that hasn’t already been said to me. We are used constantly being on the outlook for our aggressor - so yes, I can spot an asshole from across the room and it’s because I often have to.

The thing is: you are making our skins thicker and our spines stronger than anyone who doesn’t have to put up with the shit that we do. We are the same generation that can wear pretty dresses and cut up your corpse in the same moment: because trust me, we know how to get blood out of our clothing.

You think women are little helpless flowers but I know at least a quarter of my lady friends with self-defense classes under their belts, at least half who can fight their way out of a chokehold with nothing but their carkeys like daggers in their fists, at least three-fourths who are so used to any kind of slur you can throw at them that they have four witty comebacks just resting on their backburners, and all of them - all of them - are baptized in the fire of another person’s violation, whether verbal or otherwise. You are not making the submissive housewives or the shy secretaries of your wet dreams. You have made dragons.

You have made mothers with sharp teeth who can balance eight different tasks and still remember your favorite dinner. You have made CEOs who do better work because they’re used to being told they’re sub-par. You are making artists and poets and musicians who’ve seen the dark in the world. You are making social justice warriors - I use this not as a defamation but as a banner, as the way they brand themselves because it is a battle, isn’t it, and nobody’s come out without their share of scars - you are making a generation of caustically beautiful ladies who have seen more shit by six a.m. than you have all your life and they still walk better in heels than you do in your boat shoes.

We do not invite your ‘nice guy’ into our beds, you’re right, because the nice guys of our lives have been our fathers asking us if we ‘are really going out in that,’ have been our best friend telling us that his girlfriend should give up sex because he’s paid for dinner, have been our uncles and brothers and the great gentlemen who hang out of their cars and laugh when the thirteen-year-old they just honked at jumps and looks terrified (but should totally accept the compliment as if it was a gift instead of the moment she recognizes she’s never going to be safe) -

you wanna know why we don’t let nice men into our beds? Because we rarely find them.

They’re out there, I know it, but they’re not the ones wetting themselves when a woman asks ‘why do you think that?’ instead of sitting back and letting him laugh with his buddies about femi-nazis. They’re out there and they’re probably as pissed as we are that at least one third of their population has openly admitted there are times when they think it’s okay to force their significant other to have sex: they’re out there, and the sad thing is, if you’re a male, you’re statistically not one of them. As far as we know, you don’t exist. You are a white knight only you believe in.

Here’s the thing about forcing people down: eventually they’re going to get strong enough to push right on back, and when you’ve spent the whole time sitting on your ass sinking your teeth into your healthy wage gap, you’re not going to be ready for it.

You’ve hurt us, over and over. When the time comes for us to hurt back, do you know how many of us are going to ask ‘Where was the mercy when I was begging like he is now? Where was that mercy when I got pregnant? Where was that mercy when I was called selfish for being a single parent? Where was that mercy when he forced himself on me? Where was that mercy, in anything?’

The thing about oppression is that it can only last for so long. You are not making yourself dominant, you’re making yourself weak. I’ve seen men crumble because they feel uncomfortable when they get hit on by other men as if the stench of their own mistakes is strangling them. I’ve seen them get impassioned because a teacher preferred females and I’ve laughed because I had eight other classes where it was reversed and in all of those eight, it went uncontested. I have legitimately punched a boy who said that a show for girls was shameful because it tries to teach lessons instead of catering to his desire for sex - as if just by liking something, he owns it. I’ve seen boys growl about women’s history month and had to wonder if they’ve ever held a textbook where the only names of girls are tiny footnotes. I’ve seen fathers ask why the curriculum I use for my six-year-olds is carefully gender neutral, why I let his son play at cooking or his daughter be a doctor.

I have never heard a mother complain except to beg me to get her little girl to talk more, to do more, to succeed - do you see? Do you see?

Here’s the thing about stepping on us: we have learned to stop licking your boots
and now we want to ruin you.

HERE is the DIFFERENCE. So many people get so confused. Difference between having anxiety and having an anxiety disorder.

hmm…
