A man came to our class once,
he claimed to be a fair judge
with daughters he loved.

He asked a question to the class:
“When should a minor be tried
as an adult?”
and students began raising their hand

he wrote it up on the board.

he wrote it up on the board.

I said, “Rape”
and he paused, he asked
for clarification

“You mean violent rape?”

“no I mean rape.
It is all the same.”

he looked to a boy
who said “rape only if
he used a weapon and
hurt her.”

and I said, “rape is rape,
whether his weapon is a knife,
drugs, or guilt. She said no.”

he shook his head,
and wrote
“Violent rape” on the board

I never understood,
because you can kill somebody
quietly and peacefully with drugs,
or with guns and knives or cars;
but nobody cares if the murder was “violent”

it was still murder.

O’Neil: ♪This is a little song about the nuns. Fiercer, meaner, crueler, ruder than the Huns. I am forced to babysit them when I thought that I had quit them. Oh, I kinda hope that they all get the runs♪ You know, she’s not even a nun anymore?

Nun: The way we see it, she’s still married to Jesus. We’re catholics. No divorce.

O’Neil: ♪This is a song about my mom and dad and the divorce that they should have had

Witchcraft (also called witchery or spellcraft) is the use of magical faculties, most commonly for religious, divinatory or medicinal purposes.

The belief in and the practice of magic has been present since the earliest human cultures and continues to have an important religious and medicinal role in many cultures today.

"Magic is central not only in ‘primitive’ societies but in ‘high cultural’ societies as well…"  X

Piper: I spent a lot of time wondering if it would matter if I died.
Nikki: In the macro sense, no. You’re one Cheerio in the bulk box of life. But… You fucking tickle me, so I think it would matter.

When Lily Evans told James Potter that she wouldn’t go out with him because he was a bully, he stopped bullying people and redeemed himself. When Lily told Severus Snape that she wouldn’t go out with him because he called her a racial slur, he went on to join a racist terrorist group.
Conclusion: James Potter handled rejection much better than Severus Snape does.

Actually, when Lily Evans told James Potter that she wouldn’t go out with him because he was a bully, he pushed her incessantly for years, blackmailed her, terrorized her best friend, humiliated her in front of crowds, and eventually merely stopped being a bully when she was around, continuing mocking and humiliating others behind her back, even though he knew she didn’t like it.

When Lily told Severus Snape that she wouldn’t go out with him, it wasn’t because he called her a racial slur, it was because she thought of him as a friend. He didn’t join the Death Eaters because he was rejected by Lily, he joined the Death Eaters because he had a terrible home life, wanted to belong somewhere, and was sick of getting pushed around by everyone in his life.

Conclusion: What the hell are you even talking about? James Potter and Severus Snape both handled rejection extremely poorly and I dearly hope James Potter is not your consent role model.

white women when you derail a conversation about uplifting, supporting, protecting, loving black girls, and black women with “All girls, all women” you are the equivalent of when men derail your conversations to say “not all men”.

Datun Mountain, Taipei, China by Johns Tsai

Leave your apartment looking terrible. Walk to the deli and see your usual deli guy’s eyes start to widen at your disheveled appearance. This would’ve horrified you yesterday but today it makes you smile. You’ve decided that everything that made you worry will now make you smile.

Walk with better posture. Order two helpings of dessert. Ask someone to take you to a doctor’s appointment and refuse to feel guilty about it. You would do the same for them so why should you feel like you’re putting anyone out? Stand by your opinion that The Shins are a good band even when you’re friends give you hell over it. This is thrilling. Openly loving The Shins has never felt so liberating.

Tell your father he’s a jerk because he is. Tell your mother that you love her because you do. Don’t tell anyone that you love them if it’s not true, if they don’t deserve it. It’s a privilege to be loved by you. Your emotional shitty days are effectively over.

I was leaving the library today and some dumb jerk with a neck the size of my rib cage and two buddies in his car called me a dike. So that was awesome.



its easier to say “they” instead of “she/he” when you’re not sure about someone’s gender so stop acting like everyone is making your life complicated

Do you ever see something someone posted, and you’re just like NO YOU ARE WRONG but you think to yourself, “This isn’t the hill I want to die on” so you have to let it go?
