“You might think: who is this Harry Potter girl? What is she doing at the UN? I’ve been asking myself at the same thing. All I know is that I care about this problem and I want to make this better. And having seen what I’ve seen and given the chance, I feel my responsibility to say something.

It is time that we all see gender as a spectrum instead of two sets of opposing ideals. We should stop defining each other by what we are not, and start defining ourselves by who we are.

I want men to take up this mantle so their daughters, sisters and mothers can be free from prejudice but also so their sons have permission to be vulnerable and human, too and in doing so, be a more true and complete version of themselves.”
Emma Watson in her gender equality speech at the UN this weekend (via micdotcom)

It’s On Us: 

To RECOGNIZE that non-consensual sex is sexual assault.

To IDENTIFY situations in which sexual assault may occur.

To INTERVENE in situations where consent has not or cannot be given.

To CREATE an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.

It’s On Us

Not Alone

hold up

a celebrity filled, gender-neutral, anti-sexual assault PSA?

and this isn’t a BuzzFeed parody?

I think I feel my heart growig three sizes

Hawaii was first called the Sandwich Islands.
Source

Pretty sure it was first called  Niʻihau, Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi, Kahoʻolawe, Maui and Hawaiʻi.
The earliest habitation supported by archaeological evidence dates to as early as 300 CE, whereas the 1778 arrival of British explorer James Cook was Hawaiʻi’s first documented contact with European explorers. Cook named the islands the “Sandwich Islands” in honor of his sponsor John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich.
Because things only exist when Europeans discover them smh

This. ffs




Like anyone “discovering” anywhere with an indigenous people! The argument about who “discovered” the American Continent first when discussing the Varangians, Columbus, and Chinese.But this pervades our language: “You know what I discovered today?”"What?""There are strawberry flavored Oreos!""Holy fuck! Were they growing in the wild in some desolate place where no human has set foot? That’s absolutely incredible!"The Hawai’ian islands were discovered by some smart polynesians 1,000 to 1,500 years BEFORE Cook stumbled upon them. The Polynesians studied the waves and forecast that there were islands 2,500 miles that way. They packed their shit and set sail in tiny boats AND FOUND ISLANDS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GODDAMNED PACIFIC!!! Cook found the islands because he was randomly sailing around exploring. The ancient Polynesians KNEW there was land out there, almost directly north of them. Columbus died thinking he had found a new way to Asia. Columbus didn’t discover a goddamned thing except that men can’t stop and ask for directions.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

Get yo hairs did, the origins.

Apparently I cannot go out in public

Yesterday I went to a quiet place for lunch, and they had a TV on. There was coverage of Kerry talking about the war on ISIS. Out of the whole place these octogenarians chose to sit next to me. The man said to his female companion, “it’s disgusting that we haven’t already gone over there and laid the entire place to waste! It worked in Japan!”

First off, I’m guessing this guy is in his 80s, by the look of him and his companion. So, he’s “from” the generation old enough to remember the end of the war with Japan. But listening to him, you would think we had committed genocide. We committed atrocities. That war was reprehensibly full of tragedy. We did not “fix” Japan: the Japanese are definitely going strong. It sure sounds like he means ALL of “those people” to me. I also caught part of something about we should have just killed their king years ago. No king in Syria or Iraq. And if you knew ANYTHING, you’d know we’ve BEEN indirectly trying to oust PRESIDENT al-Assad for like 2 years.

As I got up to leave, he looked at me and said, “All of them just see a white person and’d just as soon cut your head off than say hi to you.” As I passed him, I said, “I wish they’d cut your head off.” I thought I said it loud enough, but he kept talking.

Ruined my next hour. Ugh.
