Happy Black History YEAR!
loving how my old history teacher talked about them like a terrorist group
boost me up
Wow okay so for those skimming, there’s a memo up there from THE DIRECTOR OF THE FBI that sets a mission to LIE about the good things the Black Panthers were doing, spread rumors of them being terrorists, and terrorize the communities supporting them.
If you think the Black Panthers were terrorists and you’ve never heard of the community-building, it’s because there was a literal government conspiracy to make you and people 45 years ago think that way.
i’m reblogging again (bolding mine), because people need to fucking know this. especially white americans.

Revisiting Queer as Folk: The cast explains why the sex mattered
Hal Sparks (Michael): "I was the one who said that I really wanted my sex scenes to have meaning. I wanted gay couples and gay individuals who were watching the show, were told by everyone around them that their sexuality was a lifestyle choice or just physical, to see the love in the sex. To see the physical connection compounded by love. Because that’s why I think gay or lesbian is a much more valuable word than homosexual—because homosexual denotes to a physical connectivity and gay and lesbian is about relationships. What I wanted them to see was two gay men together, not two homosexuals. To some to degree, what you were seeing in the Brian sex scenes—from an outside perspective—was two homosexuals: people who are sexually-driven but not emotionally connected. By contrast, I thought it was my responsibility along with the character that I was in the scene with, that we had to deliver the answer to that. We had to have as much love as Brian had partners, and that’s a lot."

New radfem agenda: abolish fandoms, they are too problematic.

I think a lot of it is our desire to show off and our mothering complex join forces. I think also a lot of it comes from not having the confidence that you have something to offer as your own entity. You think either this person isn’t going to be impressed enough about you just through the art of conversation or through the privilege of getting to look at your face. There’s also the sense that this person’s addition to your life is going to up your worth in some way. Even if you intellectually know it’s not true, it’s hard to let go of the emotional component that tells you that it is.

to those of you who don’t have fathers, or have lost your fathers, or whose fathers are estranged, or whose fathers are abusive assholes, or who have complicated relationships with their fathers, or any combination of the above
just know that you’re not alone today in your pain, sorrow and anger
it’s one stupid, meaningless holiday, and we will get through it
