you know, i’d rather be alone for a while longer than keeping on holding my breath for these bitches who just go out with me one time and then drop me for basic white dudes.
fuck that shit. lemme sit here and just wait for em to come crawling back.
Tumblr really doesn’t seem to care much about disabled people and ableism. Seriously, I’ve seen multiple posts with 1000+ notes ripping at the TIMES list (and damn rightfully so!), however I’ve only seen one about the fact that the man that made the horrendous “I Am Autism" (major tw for ableism in the video) was on the list, and it only has 15 notes.
reblogging because EW i actually had no idea
i was so pissed about laverne cox not making it that i didn’t even bother to read the list at all.
Poverty tourism is only the most recent form of the evolution of the particular fascination (stand well back, but let us peer at you, curiously) that the upper classes have with the lower. The current mutation of poverty tourism includes a well meaning, upper/middle class, first world people, who are for whatever reason turned onto going to Africa (and it’s always Africa, isn’t it) to learn about how the starving children that show up on their TVs and their destitute parents live.
From Kennedy Odede, a Kenyan university student:
“Slum tourism has its advocates, who say it promotes social awareness. And it’s good money, which helps the local economy.
But it’s not worth it. Slum tourism turns poverty into entertainment, something that can be momentarily experienced and then escaped from. People think they’ve really “seen” something — and then go back to their lives and leave me, my family and my community right where we were before”

REBLOGGING FOR THE GIF AND MY NEW FAVORITE WORD: “swagapparate”
Anonymous asked: Vaccines aren't actually necessary. If you live a natural, healthy lifestyle free of chemicals, toxic food additives, and GMOs, your body will take care of diseases itself.
Ah, right, like the way literally millions of people’s bodies “took care of themselves” back when everyone was eating 100% organic non-GMO everything and living totally “naturally.”
Death. The word you’re looking for as the reality behind your little euphemism is mass, often genocidal, pandemic, bodies-piled-in-the-streets for fucks sake look up smallpox or polio some time and see how long it takes you to start sobbing DEATH. With a side of mutilation and life-long disability for the “lucky” ones.
PS: If you really believe that all chemicals in food and medicine are evil and therefore a good excuse not to get yourself and your kids vaccinated, see how long you survive without Dihydrogen Monoxide.
Fuck this guy. I never knew my Aunt Sharon. My mom never knew her older sister Sharon. She died of polio before the vaccine was created. Healthy as a horse, then dies before she’s even ten. And fuck you if you think it’s because my grandparents didn’t feed her right or take care of her. They did everything they could, like millions of other parents, and she died anyhow.
India was just declared polio-free THIS WEEK. How the hell do you think that happened, unicorn farts and Whole Foods? No, the goddamn polio VACCINE.
Do us all a favor — if you choose not to vaccinate your children, keep them inside forever because they, and you, are a goddamn danger to those who can’t get vaccinated for health reasons or age.
VACCINATE EVERYONE WHO CAN BE VACCINATED.
I swear on all that is holy, I’m 100% done with anti-vaxxers. Your opinions are not based in science or reality, and therefore are not valid. They are fucking dangerous and causing outbreaks of potentially deadly diseases. If there were some way to criminally charge anti-vaxxers with reckless endangerment or manslaughter, I would support that completely.
Your hardheaded ignorance in the face of facts is KILLING PEOPLE.

Anonymous asked: time magazine left laverne cox, a trans woc, out of the time 100 even though she received 81000 votes wanting her in it, and they put miley cyrus, john green and vladimir putin in because they're white cis people. I can't explain how furious this makes me
I just saw it. I hoped that my eyes didn’t deceive me. But wtf Time. Wasn’t she #4
Miley Cyrus, a white cis woman who’s only remembered by most for Hannah Montana and stealing Black culture, is on there, but Laverne Cox, a Black trans activist, is not. “New Black” Pharrell Williams got a spot, but Lupita Nyong’o who inspires us all to feel beautiful in our own skin? Nope. Like, there are some of these entries that are actually pretty deserving (Beyonce, Malala Yousafzai, etc…), but there’s some pretty fucking outrageous dogshit as well. Carrie Underwood - really? Rand Paul - are you shitting me? Kim Jong Un?? Benedict Slavemoney Cumerbatch - fandom’s super important, am I right? lol MEGYN KELLY - ARE YOU FOR REAL?? LOL I COULD HAVE SWORN SHE WAS LOW ON THOSE POLLS TOO. Pope Francis rep’ing the homophobes… Oh wait, Putin’s there too! Like, are we looking for positive influences or are we just listing anyone who happened to make a splash on any kind? I’m almost surprised that Justin Beiber didn’t make it on here. Like why not? He had a lot of votes and what’s one more shit pebble, eh Time? lol
i just wanted to show y’all this
