During World War II, Josephine Baker served with the French Red Cross and was an active member of the French resistance movement. Using her career as a cover Baker became an intelligence agent, carrying secret messages written in invisible ink on her sheet music. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre, and received a Medal of the Resistance in 1946. In 1961 she received the highest French honor, the Legion d’Honneur awarded by then President Charles de Gaulle.
Our loss, U.S.A….

If you don’t admire the shit out of J. Baker, who was also pretty openly bisexual and adopted NINETEEN children in addition to the badassery mentioned above, I want you to go sit in the corner and think about your life choices.

um she was also a huge civil rights activist and her refusal to perform for segregated audiences at major clubs that were fallin over themselves to book her helped de-segregate vegas performance venues
aaaand she had a pet cheetah

The best thing she ever did was leave the US

Strolling | free condoms; pay for tampons, typecasting, “selling out”, angry black woman overcompensation, rape culture & more - cecile emeke 

This is a strolling episode, part of the short documentary film series where we go on a stroll with people and talk about various issues affecting young black people.

(my quick note: some men menstruate too.)

dear sister bad-dominicana, men cannot menstruate because males do not have female reproductive organs. men are not women. thank you for the honor of addressing you. i wish you well. 

Science, my people perish from lack of knowledge.

yeah YOU are perishing in your lack of knowledge about trans men who ARE men and in fact have ovaries, as well as transwomen who DONT have a uterus, and nonbinary and intersex people. you are lacking with your cis heteronormative bioessentialist faux science that denies world history and erases and aids violence against millions of people globally. you.
This video is so important.

brilliant. and sometimes the ugliest produce tastes better.

I remember seeing a story on the news sometime ago that hundreds of millions of fruits and veggies are thrown out by grocery stores just because they don’t look pretty.

So someone took the ones that were about to be thrown out and sold them at a cheaper price.

Humans suck
Throwing away food.
Only we would do that.

There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”.

"BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MEN?!" - Is Feminism Sexist? (x)

Guess what? Feminism is beneficial for men. But even if it wasn’t, empowering women shouldn’t be limited or defined by what men think is important.
