More Reasons People Found to Hate Me

mandymorbid:

So, a long time ago I started playing Dungeons & Dragons. Well really I started playing Warhammer 40K first, and painting the minis while I was recovering from surgery. I wasn’t healing properly and I didn’t respond to my post op pain medication—in fact it made me so sick I stopped taking it less…

As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.

Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.

oppression is not a competition

thank you so much for this wording

A little tribute to “those other students” at Greendale Community College. I think I’m gonna miss these guys most of all. 

Quick reminder that that’s Lee Jordan in the middle.
