pls stop asking me about racial slurs just don’t use them & when u hear somone use one just call them out pls don’t keep asking me “but what about……?” because it’s annoying just STAHP.
I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone, it’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone
Anonymous asked: how do you feel about the word gypsy being used in the uk? like the tv show my big fat gypsy wedding and such and the fact that irish travellers often refer to themselves as gypsies?
i really don’t get what is so confusing about this to y’all. just because ppl use it like it isn’t a slur doesn’t negate the fact that it fucking is. how about (non-black) ppl who use the n word all the time regardless of whether they “meant” to cause any harm???? yeah kinda like that. i mean just think about it for real. when a word is considered a slur it depends on BOTH the usage & the history of the word. the word is not in itself a slur — as with all words it requires knowledge of the HISTORY & context. in other words, if a word is used as a slur, it then BECOMES one & the word g*psy is ABSO-FUCKING-LUTELY used as a slur against roma ppl.
*** just as a quick side note to clarify when i’m talking about the n-word i am not equating these two words because the history of each word is different. i’m just using it as a simple example so that ppl can understand without writing a damn essay so hopefully you get my point.

Who really benefits from the pink ribbon campaigns: the cause or the company? In showing the real story of breast cancer and the lives of those who fight it, this film reveals the co-opting of what marketing experts have labeled a “dream cause.”
If you’re a woman, take the time to watch the documentary Pink Ribbons, Inc.
Watch it on
Youtube (for now…) (x)
Glad to see this on Tumblr. I don’t Pink. I don’t Run for a Cure. Write a check to your favorite women’s health charity.
I want a cure, I want research and support services and free diagnosis and treatment, I want lives saved. I do not give a flying fuck about pink ribbons, when less than 25% of Komen’s budget goes into research, but they do litigiously pursue competing organizations for trademark infringement.
Find an org that is all about research or care or free services or support and write a check, click a donate button, give to someone who calls you but stop supporting an org that doesn’t do the actual work.
