"You think I’m not a goddess?
Try me.
This is a torch song.
Touch me and you’ll burn."

Yesterday, our National Museum of American History added more items to its LGBTQ History collection. The items are not on view yet, but you can see many of them online now

LGBTQ History is an important part of the American experience and the Smithsonian is committed to making sure these stories are told. In a blog post, a curator reflects on collecting and interpreting LGBTQ material culture.

""Women are the niggers of gender," the email said. "If you killed yourself, I wouldn’t even fuck the corpse."

I blinked at my phone, fighting simultaneous urges to hurl my phone across the room in anger and cry. Later that day, someone texted me my address — telling me they’d “See me when I least expected it.”

I haven’t been out to my car at night by myself since January 2nd.

My name is Brianna Wu. I lead a development studio that makes games. Sometimes, I write about issues in the games industry that relate to the equality of women. My reward is that I regularly have men threatening to rape and commit acts of violence against me."

The bravest woman on Earth.

Malala is an inspiration for every girl in every developing country, and as someone who’s from a country like that I can’t express just how brave and strong she really is.

The fact that trans women have just been completely booted out of this conversation on police brutality smfh…

In 2008, a black trans woman was severely beaten by police and was preparing to sue the Memphis Police Department. She was killed execution style shortly after and no one has yet to be arrested.. Her name was Duanna Johnson. Remember her name…

So, if the Founders could bend the elements a la ATLAB, which would they bend? Based on historical research, I’m thinking:

Thomas Jefferson: Waterbender
John Adams: Earthbender
Alexander Hamilton: Firebender
James Madison: Airbender
George Washington: Avatar

Benjamin Franklin: Boomerang guy

Why hasn’t someone drawn this yet? Its an epic idea.

Although, personally, I’d say Washington is more the boomerang guy (what was his talent again?) and Franklin the Avatar (that guy could do anything), but you know. XD Also, crappy Muro drawing is crappy…

"In some ways it was easier for my generation. Racism was blatant and obvious. The “Whites Only” signs let us know clearly, what we were up against. Not much has changed, but the system of lies and trickology is much more sophisticated. Today young people have to be highly informed and acutely analytical, or they will be swept up into a whirlpool of lies and deception."

Assata Shakur, Honey Magazine debut issue (1998)

My friend shared this quote with me today and I instantly remembered another great quote from Assata Shakur that I feel is crucial to be absorbed when reading the quote above “No one is going to give you the education you need to overthrow them. Nobody is going to teach you your true history, teach you your true heroes, if they know that that knowledge will help set you free”.

See this goes out to people who constantly think those of us in this generation are too sensitive or are always looking for racism when it’s just that we realize how tactics have changed…racism has never gone away they’ve just tried to change the face of the game…
