I am:
awkward. really, truly awkward. also opinionated (quietly) and sometimes rather sad. I'm quite passionate about a lot of things that don't seem to go together, so this is not at all organized. It's more a collection of sorts!
I post:
things that catch my eye or tickle my whimsy. and occasionally, reposts of angry, politics-related garbage

U.S. Martin Luther King Jr being attacked as he marched nonviolently for the Chicago Freedom Movement, 1966, which was the most ambitious civil rights campaign in the North of the United States, and lasted from mid-1965 to early 1967.

If only he’d been well-spoken, pulled his pants up and didn’t wear a hoodie… oop… wait…

Please really look at this. Look at how many men are on him. Look at how you can see he is not attacking anyone. Look at how he is dressed. Imagine the fear he has that this moment may have been his last. Remember that he was assassinated by forces within the U.S. gov’t because of his mission. Before you pull that string on that MLK Jr. watered-down quote teddy, look at this, look at what’s happening today, and really fucking think.

it genuinely baffles me that men don’t want women in positions of power because “they’re slaves to their hormones/emotions” and yet one of the first lines of defence when it comes to rape cases tends to be “it’s hardly his fault look at what she was wearing how could we expect him to control himself

India replaces the Ice Bucket Challenge with the much more sustainable Rice Bucket Challenge 

After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”

It’s fairly simpleFollow micdotcom

You’re A Rainbow!: Macro Shot Of A Hummingbird’s Face
This is the macro shot of a Green-Crowned Brilliant Hummingbird’s face taken by photographer Chris Morgan while on vacation at the Bosque De Paz biological reserve in Costa Rica. You know, Mother Nature — sometimes you are alright. I mean it’s RARE, but when you do, it almost seems to make up for all the other horrible, horrible shit you do. I’ll tell you what — let’s call a truce this weekend. You promise I won’t find any spiders in my bedroom, and I won’t do anything bad for the environment. “Wait — are you burning car tires?” Haha, I had my fingers crossed you filthy forest nymph!

FIRE  <3 

I’ve been working on-and-off on this for the past few weeks - I tend to work very slowly whenever I draw Fire, because she is my favourite and I want her to be perfect  (◡‿◡✿)
I think I’m actually pretty happy with how she came out…  *is proud*

Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was arrested on Monday during unrest in Ferguson Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest “for failing to disperse.” 8 others were also arrested.
"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety," Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.” Epstein is currently an activist and a vocal supporter of the Free Gaza Movement. 

HARDCORE

'Merica. Land of the 'free', y'all.

She’s also a big pro choice campaigner, a member of the anti-war movement, and a campaigner for affordable housing. She’s been strip and cavity searched at Ben Gurion International Airport in 2004 when traveling to the West Bank to work with the International Solidarity Movement.
She’s badass.
