Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014

Both by Dan Bagan

Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.

Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”

Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.

These are women are who I always wanted to be.

The “Bible Belt” is the Porn Belt: Surprised? →

knowledgeequalsblackpower:

Red-state conservatives may insist that the rest of us should keep aspirin between our knees and be forced to bear Divine Justice Babies if we don’t. They may refuse to provide cake or flowers for gay weddings, or even to attend. They may pretend that teens won’t do it if we just don’t tell them how. They may adopt the Church Lady posture if anyone mentions sex that doesn’t involve one man, one woman, the missionary position and a pulsing desire for more offspring.

But online search traffic from behind closed doors in Jesusland suggests that the bad, nasty, sexual impulses righteous believers are trying so hard to shut down may be their own. And if Google search patterns mean anything, they’re not succeeding too well: studies consistently demonstrate that people in conservative religious states search for adult materials online far more often than people in blue states. 

Not surprising at all since many of those conservative beliefs about sex don’t really seem healthy and are really confusing.

And driving through Kentucky.. there are the most adult video stores I’ve ever seen. It be like a billboard with the 10 commandments on it… then two adult video stores.. then another billboard that says “hell is real!”

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THIS DRESS.

Its perfection.

DRESS: Forever 21+ size 3x (runs a lil tight)
NECKLACE: Forever 21
TIMBERLANDS: like any store (mine are kid size 7)
LIPSTICK: Milani Black Cherry

Yes I took these on self timer downtown. No I dont care if anyone saw, these are dope pics. This dress deserved a new background. It was worth it.

When curvily posted this in her “what I didnt buy” section, I fell in LOVE. I mean its perf! Flattering, sexy, conservative, versatile, and ITS A COLOR. Im obsessed with this shade of red right now. I had to have this dress. You can dress it up and down, wear it almost to any occasion…I mean its adorbz.

So the first time I tried to buy this my card got declined. DEVASTATED. So next paycheck I immediately got this (and a ton of sale stuff hehe).

I love anything that has potential for many different looks. In this post I dressed it down a bit. But throw on heels and its good for a fancy date!

some great quote I heard somewhere once upon a time and that is very, very true (via traffic-jam-session)

A woman is only vulnerable when her nail polish is drying, and even then she can still pull a trigger.
