the pressure on first generation children of immigrants 

to prove that you are indeed proof that parents’ sacrifice was worth it

is something that many Americans will never understand

Fuck the San Bernardino city police.

This breaks my heart…

Trying to make an honest living and you’re just fucking it up. Fuck you hard, hard up the ass pig.

Fuck you. Ni te mereces ser llamado puerco. Los puercos por lo menos tienen corazón.

1. Because a woman brought into this world will inevitably be given pepper spray “just in case.”

2. Because by sixteen, a young girl knows how to avoid being sexually assaulted, while a boy of the same age does not fear sexual assault in the slightest.

3. Because a girl who mocks men is a bitch, and a boy who mocks women is joking.

4. Because a girl who has sex is a slut, and a boy who has sex is a man.

5. Because in a murder, the killer is at fault, but the blame of rape is often put on the victim.

6. Because we teach girls how not to get raped instead of teaching anyone simply not to rape.

7. Because a woman should put more clothes on if her outfit makes a man uncomfortable, because his self control is her responsibility.

8. Because feminists just need to chill out.

9. Because a 22 year old sex-obsessed virgin can murder 7 people, and the problem is that someone should’ve just slept with him.

10. Because not all men are predators, but yes, all women are prey.

« i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful
before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know
you are more than that

Chicago: Emergency protest against the bombing of Gaza, July 9, 2014.

More than a thousand people mobilized in less than a day in Chicago to demand an end to Israeli collective punishment against the Palestinian people, which had taken more than 70 lives by the end of the rally and march. Protesters have vowed to step up their opposition to U.S. policy that bankrolls Israel’s occupation of Palestine and apartheid policies in the region.
