White feminists:

When you discuss the wage gap, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Only white women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar.
  • Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
  • Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.

Intersectionality matters.

I will keep reblogging this to point out that disabled people, including men, make 22 cents on the dollar. Mostly because it is legal to pay us below minimum wage, but whatevs.

Inuit Artist Kenojuak Ashevak Gets Posthumous Birthday Honors From Google Doodle Canada

She brought Inuit, and indigenous, art to the fore with her distinctive style of animal prints, and was beloved by many.
Now, Inuit artist Kenojuak Ashevak, who walked on last year, is being honored by Google Doodle in Canada for what would have been her 87th birthday.

Sometimes, people approach a discussion in bad faith. They’re not interested in having a conversation with you about a topic. They’re interested in riling you up, breaking you down, winding you up, and crushing you. They want to see you flail and get flustered and get angry. They feel like they’re proving some kind of ‘point’ by doing so, as though browbeating someone into an unwanted discussion and then refusing to actually engage is some kind of accomplishment.

And you, yes, you, you have the ability to tell when someone is entering a conversation in bad faith. You really do. I promise. You don’t owe anyone anything, as Zeisler pointed out, and it’s okay to just drop the mic and walk away. This isn’t about dodging out of conversations or ducking questions or refusing to engage or whatever BS insult someone’s going to sling at you. It’s about a totally reasonable conservation of energy and resources. It makes way more sense to seek out productive conversations that will lead to actual change than it does to repeatedly beat your head against a brick wall and watch nothing happen, other than a growing headache.

Instead of tackling sensitive issues within the gender and sexual minority community, I decided to make fun of something we can all agree is extremely annoying: Bro-Bro Reddit Gamers.

Canadians who are all like “I can’t believe what’s happening in the US, thank goodness we are such a tolerant multicultural nation”

Canadians who are all like “Israel is killing babies, how can the US support them in this genocidal effort”

meanwhile literally at the same time thousands of people are gathering in Winnipeg because two 15-year-old Native girls were found murdered in the Red River ON THE SAME DAY

I am posting this to spread awareness to folks down here on the ground. A white anarchist punched me in the face as I was running from gun shots. Before he hit me he told me to ” sit the fuck down” . The KKK is out here. There are white man throwing bombs and giving them to youth . Spread the word because its about to be night fall here in #ferguson. Please stand in solidarity with us even if just from your homes and computer screens. We are doing this for us.

1181 Aboriginal Women have been murdered or gone missing in Canada in the past 30 years. 

Please Reblog. 

Don’t forget that the Federal government has refused to start an inquiry into missing and murdered aborginal women in this country. This is tragic.
