oh my god I’m so sick of the Miley Cyrus conversation ok 

Miley isn’t a feminist icon because she uses black women as accessories, is culturally appropriative, objectifies black women, uses slurs, and hasn’t apologized for any of it. NOT because she dresses scandalously or expresses her sexuality.

Stop ignoring racism in the name of sexual politics. 

Feminist “icons” are not feminist icons if they contribute to the marginalization of women. End of debate. Bye.

look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to

I believe that there will be ultimately be a clash between the oppressed and those who do the oppressing. I believe that there will be a clash between those who want freedom, justice and equality for everyone and those who want to continue the system of exploitation. I believe that there will be that kind of clash, but I don’t think it will be based on the color of the skin. Malcolm X (via followaden)
Nobody in the world, nobody in history, has ever gotten their freedom by appealing to the moral sense of the people who were oppressing them. Assata Shakur  (via revenge-of-socrates)

disabledgirlism:

it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.

So people think the Heel-less shoe is a new thing? That Lady Gaga was the first to bring them to life?

really? THINK AGAIN~!

Lemme Tell you about Celia Cruz (A Cuban salsa Singer/Dancer from the 1950s) and her breathtaking "one of a kind" Shoes.

Celia Cruz was one of the most popular salsa dancers/singers in her time she earned twenty three gold albums and was known as the “Salsa Queen” and “The Queen of Latin Music” as well as "La Guarachera de Cuba".

Her career started in 1950 and ended in 2002, she died of brain cancer in 2003.

for one, these shoes, unlike the heel-less today doesn’t have major bulk in the front to keep the weight their, this woman was walking and dancing on her toes and not falling on her bum like most girls do today (mind she probably did, but practice makes perfect).

in their Time These shoes seemed as through she was walking on air, floating off the ground where only her toes were able to touch the ground, as if they were the only thing holding her down instead of floating away.

people were mesmarized by these, both past and present.

and in Frances Negrón-Muntaner’s Chapter 4 section in “From Banana to Buttocks” called “Celia’s Shoes” brings wonder to it all really. The whole chapter of the book is about her shoes and how influencing she was and they were in the United States and Latina media culture. really this man’s words are so passionate about the shoes it’s amazing.

seriously this woman was pretty cool, and her shoes were one of a kind in that era.

not to mention those shoes are now at the Smithsonian
