“I spent the entire day stitching myself together.
I am having a hard time remembering where
all my pieces go.

My lungs rattle loose and
they will drop in my stomach,
which feels stiff and shudders
landslides when butterflies flutter
against its walls. My brain fits
too tight when I panic,
sweating like leather wrapped
it shut. This voice box awkwardly 
shuffle bounces when I speak.”

— from Selling Myself Short by Alex Dang! (via wordsoftakumi)

journalofanobody:

Lord, help us root our feet to the earth
And our eyes to the road
And always remember the fallen angels
Who, attempting to soar,
Were seared instead by the sun and, wings melting,
Came crashing back to the sea.
Lord, help root my eyes to the earth
And stay my eyes to the road
So I may never stumble.”

— Lauren Oliver, Delirium (via fables-of-the-reconstruction)

“…Even Macklemore acknowledged that he “robbed Kendrick,” via a text message that he then sent out screenshots of via social media. However, Macklemore claimed that fear prevented him from taking a courageous stance and saying exactly that when he went up to accept his award. But Kendrick Lamar can’t do anything with a private apology, Macklemore. Far too often, allies refuse to speak up in public while asking for absolution via private confessions. Macklemore failed to use the white privilege that he has readily acknowledged to challenge this structure of power in a moment when the world was watching.”

— Brittney Cooper, “Macklemore’s useless apology: Grammy’s and the myth of meritocracy” (via theblackamericanprincess)

WHITE FEMINISM COLLUDING WITH HUMAN SPECIESISM COLLUDING WITH SETTLER COLONIALISM

kill me now

THIS IS AN ACTUAL THING

They care more about fucking donkeys than the very real human suffering of the Palestinian people and African immigrants living under the thumb of Israeli tyranny. Fucking typical of white/Western “feminism”.

what does this have to do w/ feminism tho

Yeah, this seems like a general white-people-priorities thing. But seriously, give me a fucking break.
