The Fault in our Coffee
I want to punch someone
I am either going to fangirl or start crying hysterically.
Street harassment is not a compliment.
This! There is a HUGE difference between a genuine compliment and the shit idiots say to you in the street.
Yes there is! And it’s this: a compliment should make you feel loved and all giddy and blushing and shit like that. The random bull shit you get in the street just makes you feel uncomfortable and offended!
This is what like half the world’s population needs to see.
On the morning of September 4, 1957, fifteen-year-old Dorothy Counts set out on a harrowing path toward Harding High, where-as the first African American to attend the all-white school – she was greeted by a jeering swarm of boys who spat, threw trash, and yelled epithets at her as she entered the building.
Charlotte Observer photographer Don Sturkey captured the ugly incident on film, and in the days that followed, the searing image appeared not just in the local paper but in newspapers around the world.
People everywhere were transfixed by the girl in the photograph who stood tall, her five-foot-ten-inch frame towering nobly above the mob that trailed her. There, in black and white, was evidence of the brutality of racism, a sinister force that had led children to torment another child while adults stood by. While the images display a lot of evils: prejudice, ignorance, racism, sexism, inequality, it also captures true strength, determination, courage and inspiration.
Here she is, age 70, still absolutely elegant and poised.
she deserves to be re-blogged.
she’s so goddamned inspirational
this makes me want to cry
|Carly:||What are those? (pointing to my scars on my wrist)|
|Me:||They're battle scars.|
|Anna:||Cool! Can I have some?|
|Me:||Please don't ever get some okay? But when you seem someone with them like the ones I have on their wrists go hug them. Don't ever make fun of them okay?|
|As we're walking around Wal Mart with both of them holding my hands, a young girl walks by us. Carly and Anna go and hug her. She hugs these two adorable little girls back|
|Girl:||Why are you hugging me?|
|Carly:||You have battle scars. *points to her wrists*|
|And through her tears she looks up at me and smiles.|
|If you don't reblog this... I don't know what I'd do, just reblog it.|
dont teach little girls to hate other little girls. dont tell them other girls are mean and catty and gossip and talk behind their backs. dont tell them girls will steal their boyfriends and take all the blame off the boys who leave. dont tell them boys are better for any reason. dont teach lil girls to hate lil girls because they’ll grow into women who hate other women and there’s enough people in the world who hate women, thanks

I reblog this image about once a month even as my own image, as if it just makes one person think twice……
Just never do it - It’s ruins everything and you can’t just stop like you would think. It’s an addiction that you won’t ever really get over. It’s will be with you for life. You might end up stopping but it will always be on your mind next time things turn bad or go wrong.
JUST PLEASE THINK FIRST.
That last part about it always being on your mind….100% true. Even the slightest problems or stresses cause my mind to flicker to it, even for a second, it’s enough to make me so sad that I was ever at such a low point. I never want to go back. But the thoughts that accompany ever making that first cut, make it so tempting sometimes. Just don’t do it.
The best thing to cut when you are sad. stressed, or just hungry.
Absolutely true. Please don’t start—it will take a long time before you can stop.
