American History 101
True life: I got kicked out of class in the third grade for bringing this up.
I’m pretty sure my child is going to get kicked out of class for being aware. And I will take them out for pizza when it happens. Fools won’t brainwash my babies. Uh uh.

burnacular said: thank you! and thanks for the advice, I really enjoy hearing your opinion but yeah I'll be sure not to just be lazy
i mean…. you can be lazy. lazy is an agenda itself. you know the rick owens version of luxury is very lazy luxury. it’s for people with so much time. endless time. well actually @humalien would be better to describe the rick girl i’m probably doing a poor job. but lazy can be your thing. it’s just important to come up with what you want out of your clothes yourself rather than look to other people for guidance. like. what do you want out of your fashion experience? is it supposed to guard you? is it aggressive? what emotions do you want clothes to trigger in you and in the people who see you? do you wanna take up a lot of space or be slinky? do you want your clothes to make noise? heavy clothes like material hugs or soft jersey like kisses on the skin? corny but true. also, how much time and thought do you put into putting on your clothes and taking them off? do you enjoy the ritual of a lot of buttons? i find the more difficult something is to put on the more i love it, because the intimacy of putting them on and often requiring help is very personal and fun. do you like sliding them off in a second? what kind of life do you want for your clothes and you to share? what kind of experience are you looking for?
think about the experience you look for in your clothes. it will lead you to what you want!

- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson

You cannot say that you like Pocahontas. The genocide of my people is turned into a cartoon musical with a singing raccoon.
Then shown to children around the world. Thus ensuring the next generation remains relatively indifferent to the past and present conditions of indigenous people.

“Stalking is how some men raise the stakes when women don’t play along. It is a crime of power, control, and intimidation very similar to rape. […] Whether he is an estranged husband, an ex-boyfriend, a onetime date, or an unwanted suitor, the stalker enforces our culture’s cruelest rule, which is that women are not allowed to decide who will be in their lives.”
