Seriously you guys, look at these fucking photos!!! Aren’t they gorgeous??? This calendar is going to be full 12x12 high quality photos and printing and it’s for a non-profit who is donating some of the proceeds to Basic Rights Oregon!

Duh, here’s the link to pre-order the calendar: http://igg.me/at/pudgepdx

This is my pet project, so I have to promote it here, right? Please consider ordering a calendar ($25!) and help the printing/shipping in the process.

Remember that.

thank you. people are acting like he got sick with express purpose of bringing it to america. disease is so complicated and part of the human experience. and while ebola is frightening, the racism, xenophobia and victim blaming are absolutely sickening. ebola is the enemy. not people who are sick. remember that.

Kindnesses can rob you blind. They can also kill you. And sometimes, they are even worth it. End of Rant.

Indigenous People’s Day Photo Project 2013

"Dear Columbus…"

Yes. YES. Fuck Columbus forever.

I’ll always distinctly remember being a -child-, maybe 7? and even then being so horribly angry about Columbus. I was originally vocal about it. The real kicker? I quickly learned to shut up about how I felt.
I tried to talk about how infuriating it was to learn how Columbus invaded and destroyed an entire native people. And every adult I talked to tried to convince me everything Columbus did was totally okay. Apparently children aren’t supposed to learn about Columbus and find him to be anything but ~brave~ and ~adventurous~ or some shit.
I’m still, even now, fucking appalled anyone, ANYONE, could so easily and thoughtlessly try to indoctrinate a small child into accepting genocide of native people. It’s …disgusting, and so extremely telling of how far our culture will go in its dehumanization and erasure of the violence native people endured and continue to endure at our hands.

So. Yes. Fuck Columbus.
I hope someday we all celebrate Indigenous People Day and only remember Columbus for his crimes against humanity.

How can you discover something that already existed Columbus?

This needs more notes.

no one seems to care if they are guys 

reminder that rape and sexual abuse happens to everyone, not just girls

reminder that rape and sexual abuse needs to be acknowledged no matter a person’s gender and “no one seems to care if they are guys” is a typical antifeminist theory that is disproven by the fact that this photo set has 100,000+ notes alone

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.



Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST
