I’m honestly sick of these self indulgent anti-cancer protests where people wear a color or grow a beard or put their dick in a sock. I feel like people get the same kind of kick as if it were fucking pajama day at school but people are actually dying from a disease. Why is your dick in a sock??? What the fuck. You aren’t helping to do anything but trivialize peoples struggles.

On Periods: Let’s put this shit to bed right now: Women don’t lose their minds when they have period-related irritability. It doesn’t lower their ability to reason; it lowers their patience and, hence, tolerance for bullshit. If an issue comes up a lot during “that time of the month,” that doesn’t mean she only cares about it once a month; it means she’s bothered by it all the time and lacks the capacity, once a month, to shove it down and bury it beneath six gulps of willful silence.
this is so specific i love it
Denice Frohman - “Borders” (WoWPS 2014)
"She’s learned enough English to translate for her parents, but says that her thick accent is still a problem she tries to fix by leaving in her locker."
Our first ever viral poet! Performing at the 2014 Women of the World Poetry Slam, where she took 3rd overall.

Jellyfish Lake in Palau. Apparently the jellies have lost their ability to sting because of lack of predators in the lake and you can swim with them!
Dominique Christina - “For Emmett Till” (WoWPS 2014)
"In this photo, he’s laughing. And there is no cotton gin tied around his waist. He’s not stretched into swollen limbs. His eyes are still hazel, and recognizable. Two neat white rows of perfect teeth sit totem-like in his mouth. And the world did not know him because he had not been murdered yet."
Women of the World Poetry Slam champion, in 2014 AND 2012. So excited to have our first video of her up.
I really don’t think we’re going to end racism by joking about it. Like i’m glad that the white liberals feel like they are less racist because they can joke about people who are more explicitly racist but that actually does nothing to help people of color
Suey Park on Huffingtonpost Live dropping some much needed knowledge about the Colbert Report, the #cancelcolbert hashtag that trended as a result, and white liberalism’s own problem with using racism to talk about racism (via navigatethestream)
this’ll be the only thing I post in regards to that
