I needa smoke myself to death right now and drown myself in tears but I also needa pack sooo…

A white college student from a private college goes into a poor neighborhood and volunteers four hours a week and that’s considered exemplary. [Whereas] a poor kid who lives in that community and takes care of all the kids in that neighborhood four hours every day is not seen as a volunteer. Patricia Hill Collins (via ethiopienne)

If we’re friends you have to accept the possibility that I might fall asleep while we’re hanging out

Smiling as a greeting is a caring gesture we all like to share. Smiling as a conditioned response to submission, compliance to others, objectification of oneself, or denial of one’s needs, is injurious to oneself as a complete human being.

Finn, Geraldine. Voices of Women, Voices of Feminism: Limited Edition. Fernwood Publishing; Halifax. 1993. (pg. 39)

It’s so frustrating when guys don’t understand why it makes a lot of women uncomfortable to be told to smile by strangers in public.
