Y’all: Let Supergirl wear pants!!!

Me, during all 10 seasons of Supergirl, as they ignore that and continue to have her main suit be the original and now iconic one that actually fits her personality and the premise of the show—that you can be cute and girly and powerful—a dichotomy that makes her unique as a superhero:

ok I'm sorry do you actually seriously be…

ok I'm sorry do you actually seriously believe that white people as a whole owe PoC reparations because that's fucking hilarious

yah i do considering their ancestors build pretty much everything and they should be compensated for their labour. did you know that when slavery was abolished in america, instead of compensating freed slaves the government gave slave owners huge payouts? did you know that when slavery was abolished in indonesia freed slaves were forced to pay reparations but considering they didn’t have any money they were essentially forced to continue working as slaves for another decade? now THAT’S ridiculous.

As winter arrives, the situation on the Greek …

As winter arrives, the situation on the Greek island of Lesbos is unsustainable. Conditions at the refugee camps are horrific and island residents are tired of being left in the lurch by Athens and the EU. A visit to ground zero of European ignominy.

Those wishing to visit ground zero of European ignominy must simply drive up an olive tree-covered hill on the island of Lesbos until the high cement walls of Camp Moria come into view. “Welcome to prison,” someone has spray-painted on the walls. The dreadful stench of urine and garbage greets visitors and the ground is covered with hundreds of plastic bags. It is raining, and filthy water has collected ankle-deep on the road. The migrants who come out of the camp are covered with thin plastic capes and many of them are wearing only flipflops on their feet as they walk through the soup. Children are crying as men jostle their way through the crowd.

If this woman was alive today, she’d have my vote. Shit.

#she put frederick douglass on her ballot as v.p. too #unfortunately he didn’t know about it at the time #he read about it in the papers and was like ‘is this chick serious’

Victoria Woodhull 2016

This fails to mention that she was the first woman to run for US president, as well as being the first woman stockbroker on Wall Street alongside her sister Tennie Claflin, and their newspaper published the first English translation of the Communist Manifesto known to date

@reservoircat HEY LOOK WHAT JUST POPPED UP ON MY DASH

YES, I HAVE *OPINIONS* ABOUT THIS POST.

Okay, for starters, Victoria wasn’t a sex worker. She wasn’t necessarily anti-sex worker in the manner of the time–she viewed it as a societal ill that occurred because of the inequality of women and the power structure which allowed and abused such sex work. But she very much wanted to destroy the structures that forced many women into sex work and sex trafficking.

The claims that Victoria herself was a sex worker come from two things: her supportive stance on ‘free love’, i.e. the allowance for men and women to chose their own consensual sex partners outside of marriage, and her rise to power as a millionaire New York stock broker and newspaper owner. See, men of the time refused to believe that Victoria and her younger sister Tennessee Claflin could truly be such shrewd, ambitious and forward thinking businesswomen all on their own. So they spread the rumor that the sisters got their positions and fortunes from being sugar babies basically.

She was also virulently anti-trafficking after her younger sister and business partner Tennie Claflin was kidnapped and sold into brothels by one of their business rivals. When this happened, Victoria and her husband Colonel James Blood tracked the traffickers down and retrieved Tennie at gunpoint from her captors. 

Victoria was not well liked by her fellow suffragists either because she was an ardent supporter of Black suffrage and total equality of all races. She regularly told Stanton and Anthony to go fuck themselves.

It was awesome. She was awesome.

I just love Victoria Woodhull so much ;-;

Can we necromance this woman and make her President?

There is a difference

supermans-upper-lip:

There is a difference between someone saying something racist, homophobic, sexist, etc and actually being a racist, homophobe, sexist. Hear me out…there is a distinction to be made between someone saying something out of ignorance or even carelessness and someone saying it out of hate. Both are bad but I do believe that there is a huge difference to be taken into account. I think that before making accusations we should take these claims as seriously as they are and ask ourselves “Do I actually believe this person sees a race, sexuality, gender, as superior or inherently above another?” These terms shouldn’t be watered down, they are important and shouldn’t lose meaning (although some would argue that they already have).

nah, this isn’t how it works. if you say racist, sexist or homophobic things people have every right to assume you are a racist, a sexist or a homophobe. sure, people are always learning and we all say or do things we might not realize have a negative connotation but if you are called out on it and you don’t immediately fix it then my friend i have bad news for you.
