i went to a party last night and there was a guy there who kept putting his hands on my waist/lower back area to maneuver around me.

this happens a lot when i’m out and i never know what to do about it, but what i DO know is that it bothers me and makes me uncomfortable.

there is no real reason…

"Rape culture” is a culture in which sexual violence is considered the norm — in which people aren’t taught not to rape, but are taught not to be raped. The term was first used by feminists in the 1970s but has become popular in recent years as more survivors share their stories.

Here, a beginner’s guide to the major elements of rape culture:

1) Anyone can be a rapist

2) The idea of “gray rape”

3) “No means yes”

4) Victim blaming

5) “Slut” shaming

6) Street harassment

7) The myth of preventing rape

8) Anti-rape wear

9) Rape jokes

10) The “friend” zone

11) Pickup artists

12) Fear of reporting

13) False rape accusations

14) The power of celebrity

15) The “promising futures” media narrative

16) Male rape

17) Lack of attention to rape in minority communities

A lot of local photographers nowadays all want to be so different and edgy, but end up being exactly the same. They want models with “unique” looks and appearances but all I see are light skinned girls with big loose curly hair. Where are the kinks, the locs, the baldies, the brown and dark skinned women—where’s the diversity? Where’s your creativity because I’ve seen this same shoot over 50 times already… And I’m no longer impressed.

Our Black History Facts #1

Elijah McCoy

Elijah McCoy (1843–1929) invented an oil-dripping cup for trains.

Fast Fact: Other inventors tried to copy McCoy’s oil-dripping cup. But none of the other cups worked as well as his, so customers started asking for “the real McCoy.” That’s where the expression comes from.

Black ASL - Extremely interesting video talking about how black ASL is similar to AAVE (African American Vernacular English). And I’m just like…ummmm, hell yes! Finally I can learn how to sign the same way I speak. 

oooh, fun fact: did you know, before the civil rights movement, even the deaf schools were segregated? so black and white deaf children were not allowed to interact with each other, and that basically started black ASL. (interessssttiiiinggggg!!!!)

anyways, i’ve had a really bad day, and this just made me a bit too excited.

this is so awesome too bc i don’t even know ASL but i can see the movements of our shit, our facial expressions, etc.

The Black body, more so of women, have stood on the opposite side of the narrow Eurocentric standards of beauty. Black hairstyles have defiantly rebelled against and even when straightened added creative magic of Blackness and Boldness. 

Black hair, whether relaxed or natural, locked or shaven is beautiful. Black women are beautiful.
