"A common critique of the hipsters — indeed a confusion of the hipster and douchebag — is that they, the hipsters, serve as the thin edge of the wedge of gentrification. But this is, to my mind, unfair. Broke-ass twenty-somethings crushed under the weight of student loan payments and low earning potential in a crap economy have to live somewhere cheap. And given that the hipster is totally ok with living in racially diverse neighborhoods, they often find themselves cast into the role of pioneers of whiteness in Washington Heights or West Oakland. However, it takes a douchebag to see the financial profit to be gained in pushing poor people of color out of their homes. The hipster brings art, coffee and cocktails to a neighborhood, the douchebag brings reconstruction contractors, private security and real estate agents. The hipster seeks community, the douchebag seeks urban rental profits. The hipster might start a coffee shop in a poor, black neighborhood, but the douchebag wants to call the cops on the black men on the corner right after he turns your indy coffee shop into a Starbucks."

It’s okay to change your identity. It’s okay to discover new and different versions of yourself and it is okay to move forward and completely change your identities as they come and go and are. To be human is to be fluid, to change. You are not invalid for doing so. 

I needed this. I need this quite often.

"Louisa May Alcott wrote Little Women for the money. And it made her miserable.

As a young writer, Alcott concentrated on lurid pulp stories of revenge, murder, and adultery–“blood and thunder” literature, as she called i–and enjoyed writing very much. She was in her mid 30s when an editor suggested she try writing a book for girls. Alcott wasn’t very interested, but her father was a complete moron with money and had left the family in terrible financial trouble. Alcott wrote Little Women in hopes of some decent sales and a little breathing room and got way more than she asked for. The money in sequels was too good to turn down (and her father didn’t get any smarter with a dime), but Alcott hated writing what she called “moral pap for the young” and longed to return to the smut and violence of her early endeavors."

Trigger warning. 
So I am getting married in October, so about 20 days. The entire process I have been asked what I was going to do in regards to weight loss for the wedding. Every time I was asked I told them I wasn’t going to try to change myself, because he loves me at any size I have been. It has been an immense struggle to accept my fat body as it is and love me. I remember being told that if I was fat no one would love me and no one would ever marry me. That spiraled into an eating disorder as a teen and I am glad I have for the most part overcome that. 
Soon to be brides, don’t let anyone pressure you into feeling that you’re not thin enough to be loved or get married. 
Love your body, he/she obviously loves yours since they want to spend the rest of there lives with you. 

You look stunning in that dress and you are strong and beautiful. This is all right the fuck on!

This is what a lot of people, black and white, believe and think

OPRAH AND BARACK OBAMA EXPERIENCE RACISM ALL THE TIME!!!!!!

Those were the worst two examples you could choose. 

Slavery was never completely abolished and people are being enslaved “as punishment for crimes”.. and cities and schools are as segregated as ever.

lmao the most powerful man in the world regularly gets death threats and can’t seem to get secret service worth a damn.

the most powerful woman in the world can’t even go in a store to buy a damn handbag.
