the not so secret diaries of a modern feminist

This blog is queer, body, feminist, and kitty positive. And is most definitely nsfw.

i barreled past the ‘media fatigue’ line re: ferguson & police brutality like three days ago but ferguson PD’s counting on people to stop paying attention so they can avoid accountability so fuck that shit

“I have nine brothers and sisters who live in Baltimore, but I was adopted and raised in Florida. The circumstances in which I grew up were very different from the trenches of Baltimore where my siblings grew up. The person who adopted me had a doctorate degree, while my biological mother had me at 14 or 15 and didn’t get an advanced education. My father is in my life now, but he wasn’t in the early stages. My oldest brother is currently doing 40 years in prison.”  “And what do you do for a living?” “I work for the Reentry Initiative, which helps people get reintroduced into society after prison.” “Why do you do it?” “I’m very aware that I made it because someone else gave me a chance—my siblings were a lot less fortunate. I feel that I have an obligation to pay it forward.”

When people say “culture is meant to be shared” I’m literally like ???? Because that has literally never been the purpose of any culture. Culture is about identity, community and family. It’s about tradition. It is not and has never been about “sharing”.

Say it!

They keep saying “shared” when they mean “made available for my consumption.”

and boom goes the dynamite
