Posted for general interest. Reblog if relevant, thanks!
kiriamaya: People keep posting about how Pokemon was their childhood. IIRC, Pokemon didn’t come out until I was like 17. Holy crap I’m old. Right? I mean Pokemon came out in my teens so I guess that could count but still, really? She-ra and Jem and the Holograms, now……..

ouyangdan: jhameia: UPDATE, ALL! I am back in Hamilton! This is what happened: Got into Detroit, and got to the Canadian Consulate there, which, FYI, NO LONGER ACCEPTS VISA APPLICATIONS. Any visa application there has to be done online, and will take MINIMUM 30 DAYS. The Buffalo, NY visa processing center is… WOW! I am really glad you got that all smoothed out. This was 1) gobsmackingly...
PSA: OLD BRAS
anedumacation: snowdarkred: If you have old bras that you don’t want anymore but are in good shape, donate them! Bras are one of the least donated and most needed items at domestic violence shelters across the US. Look up a local shelter and ask them if they’re accepting bra donations, and if they’re not, ask them who is! Check with homeless shelters and other charities! Every year, the...

Dear every manufacturer of women's clothing, ever:
thestoutorialist: gothiccharmschool: Faux pockets are an abomination. If you’re going to bother putting pocket flaps on something, add the G-d damn pockets. No love, Jilli 100% true
My ride, Wilma, and I were stopped at Port Huron, where I was told, at last, that no, I need a new visa, and this is why my post-grad work permit application was rejected. Of course no one bothered to tell me this when I kept on inquiring: the Canadian High Commission in Malaysia told me that I didn’t need a new visa, and anyway they couldn’t issue me one without a new permit of some...
FUCK MODESTY!: is that really self-care? →
fromonesurvivortoanother: femme-ily: filipinafemme: taking a day off does not automatically mean you’re taking a self-care day. if the energy spent on that day off is negative, and if you spend the time beating yourself up about taking the day off, and if there isn’t active energy spent on taking care of yourself and building your self-love, it’s not a self-care day. the only reason i’m...

I know tumblr can help with this. $5000 IS NOT A THING ON TUMBLR Y’ALL!!!!! Hey tumblr, check this out! 4k in five days should be easy for the internet. I’m pushing this fundraiser by youth media makers in Detroit so...
Darn, was supposed to get home by tonight. Some of ya’ll know my ride’s allergies got the worse of her last night, and today she’s better but tired from lack of sleep. We’re only four hours away from Hamilton but thought it’d be better to catch a motel right after Flint. After that I can be a hermit from the rest of the world all I like! \o/
jemimaaslana: crypticwolfe: jemimaaslana: I…. what? How does anyone manage to maintain a pokerface through this? This man has magical pokerface skills! Sesame Street was awesome. And that is Patrick Stewart… he does kick ass Yeah, I’m aware who he is. That still does not explain the magic of his pokerface skills!!!! Actors, dammit! How do they do it? Thank you for existing, Patrick...
One group, the Hindu American Foundation, has launched a “Take Back Yoga”...– To Some Hindus, Modern Yoga Has Lost Its Way (via love-resist) I’m so happy to see this and I fully support them. I stopped doing yoga — as much as it was benefitting me physically — because it started feeling really disrespectful to just be using it for exercise when I knew it was part of a...

asuddenline: How do you do? No, I am not Chinese. No, not Spanish. No, I am American Indi-uh, Native American. No, not from India. No, not Apache. No, not Navajo. No, not Sioux. No, we are not extinct. Yes, Indian. Oh? So, that’s where you got those high cheekbones. Your great grandmother, huh? An Indian Princess, huh? Hair down to there? Let me guess. Cherokee? Oh, so you’ve had an Indian...
In Africa, education remains an abstract and unfathomable concept, neither...– Education in Africa: Whose Education, anyway? That’s the thing I always wonder when reading statistics about the number of people who die from malaria in African countries. Natural remedies abound but people only want to buy Western manufactured drugs. It is mind-numbing that anti-malarial herbs...
I am not the oppressor.
bankuei: moniquill: airinmylungs: My white skin does not make me the oppressor. I wasn’t the one who colonized Africa. I never bought and sold African-Americans in slavery. I never opposed integration, or worked against the civil rights movement. Oh, but other people of my skin color did, and so suddenly it’s on me? No. I suppose that because the 9-11 attacks were carried out my Muslims,...
bankuei: tabulanonrasa: the entire discussion on “Asian Privilege” and “privileges that Asians have,” is, from my perspective so far, completely dismissive and silencing of Asian women. and i’m still only speaking from a limited cis perspective. Dont come telling me I have more privilege when I can’t walk down suburban streets in the daytime without getting harassed and molested by men,...
Ain't nobody asking for white people to accept us
tal9000: wants-to-learn: babybutta: eclecticspectrum: How idiotic is that line of thinking? How arrogant? A white person wearing things that belong to POC is acceptance? Who the hell asked for it? You what acceptance is? Respecting where people come from and what belongs to them. Putting on some kente and waist beads does not mean that you respect me. Knowing that they are not yours...
