On the left we have the lyrics from Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines. On the right we rape survivors participating in Project Unbreakable, showing the various things that were said to them by their rapist.
i think this is the most powerful photoset i’ve ever seen on tumblr.
This actually made me laugh. Because it’s true.
Forty years ago today we say our movement began. All those years ago, we fought back against constant police harassment, against innumerable injustices, against the idea that we were somehow lesser because we were queer.
All of us were there: gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender. From stone butches to femme boys, drag queens and prostitutes, people of color and gender nonconformists, homeless youth and the poor. Everyone was there.
Our community rioted that night, and the following night, and later on again. We chanted and we mocked our oppressors. We called out “Gay Pride” to anyone that could hear.
So, on this fortieth anniversary, remember our passion and our drive. Remember our pride, and our anger, and just how far we’ve come. Remember our sense of community and that we queers belong to all walks of life.
Remember that the first Pride was a riot. And, most importantly, remember Stonewall.

"Dear Mr. Vernon,
We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong, but we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us. In the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain, and an athlete, and a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Does that answer your question?
Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.”

reblog and make a wish!
this was removed from tumbrl due to “violating one or more of Tumblr’s Community Guidelines”, but since my wish came true the first time, I’m putting it back. :)
OH MY FUCKING GOD, IT’S BACK ON MY DASH.
THIS SHIT WORKS OKAY, I AM DEAD SERIOUS.
The last time I saw this on my dash, I didn’t think it would happen, so jokingly I wished I could go to a fun. concert.
AND GUESS WHAT, I WENT TO A FUCKING FUN. CONCERT.
THIS SHIT WORKS, TRY IT.
I SAW THIS ON MY DASH THE OTHER DAY AND THOUGHT “ITS WORTH A TRY” SO I WISHED I COULD GET A 3DS
LITERALLY LIKE 4 DAYS LATER MY DAD SENT ME A PICTURE OF THE 3DS XL HE BOUGHT FOR ME WHILE I WAS AT SCHOOL
IM STILL FREAKING OUT ABOUT THIS
holy fuck, I didn’t expect this to work, I was like psh, whatever it’s just a quick reblog, but I wished my Dad would actually respond back to me AND HE FUCKING DID A FEW DAYS LATER, I GOT A FUCKING TEXT FROM MY DAD TODAY WHO HASN’T SPOKEN OR RESPONDED TO ME IN MONTHS HOLY FUCK WHAT IS THIS MAGIC IT WORKS.
I WANTED TO SEE MY BOYFRIEND AND I DIDN’T THINK I’D GET DAYS OFF BUT THIS WEEKEND I’M HEADING UP THERE??? THIS IS CRAZY SHIT

So last time I reblogged this I met Tom Hiddleston within the month…
im hoping and yet scared if this works for me
I’ve received a message from an anonymous person saying “Yes, Fred Phelps was an rampant homophobic idiot, but he’s still a man and his family should be left to mourn in private. Please show some respect”. Like, no. I will not show any respect to this man or anyone involved in that church. Are you…
So as you all already know, Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps Sr. has died.
What I find distressing are the people telling others that they’re “just as bad” for expressing happiness over Phelps’ death. Of course, their opinion isn’t automatically invalid because they are (in most cases) white cishets, but it certainly isn’t appreciated. I don’t think it’s right to tell someone how to feel towards a person who has hurt them.
They display so much sympathy for a guy whose life’s work consisted of promoting bigotry, yet they don’t grant the same amount of consideration for the victims of his church and the people who are still being hurt by those like him.
Furthermore, Internet blog posts are not “just as bad” as picketing the funerals of soldiers, hate crime victims, murdered children, other church leaders, etc. As one of America’s most malignant hate groups, they have repeatedly stepped on queers, racial minorities (despite Phelps having once been a civil rights lawyer), and members of other religions. Phelps himself brainwashed and abused children. That comparison is frankly dishonest; and nine-times-out-of-ten, it’s used in a self-congratulatory manner. (“I’m about to do something radical by proving that I’m above hate, unlike you people!”)
A person can personally sympathize with bigots all they want, but it is not their place to decide how others should feel about them. Other peoples’ forgiveness is not for them to dictate. At that point, it becomes more about their feelings on the matter rather than the feelings of the people who were harmed.
It’s alright if you feel differently, but let people sort through their anger instead of telling them to be quiet.
