    we don’t do it to our American babies, we shouldn’t do it to these babies.

    If you need an image to sympathize over what we know are brutal murders or middle eastern children, but you didn’t need an image of the Newton children, you’re a racist.

    Respect the privacy of these families. They’re…

    I don’t like this weird competition between introverts and extroverts that tumblr has created.

    You like staying in and think your own company is the best company? Great.

    You like leaving the house and chatting with strangers whenever possible? Great.

    Neither one is a commentary on how great of a person you are. Neither one is THE ideal. And being one or the other doesn’t make you special.

    i think the quote “like shoving a marshmallow through a pinhole” is pretty helpful in this explanation

     

  7. "If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also"
    — 
    Matt 5:39

    This specifically refers to a hand striking the side of a person’s face, tells quite a different story when placed in it’s proper historical context. In Jesus’s time, striking someone of a lower class ( a servant) with the back of the hand was used to assert authority and dominance. If the persecuted person “turned the other cheek,” the discipliner was faced with a dilemma. The left hand was used for unclean purposes, so a back-hand strike on the opposite cheek would not be performed. Another alternative would be a slap with the open hand as a challenge or to punch the person, but this was seen as a statement of equality. Thus, by turning the other cheek the persecuted was in effect putting an end to the behavior or if the slapping continued the person would lawfully be deemed equal and have to be released as a servant/slave.

    THAT makes a lot more sense, now, thank you.

    So Jesus is advocating a nonviolent psychological warfare tactic exploiting social norms re: dominance & perceived superiority.

    I like Jesus an awful lot.

    If you don’t know who Johnnie Tillmon was, look her up.

    Welfare is a Women’s Issue (1972) by Johnnie Tillmon

    I’m a woman. I’m a black woman. I’m a poor woman. I’m a fat woman. I’m a middle-aged woman. And I’m on welfare.

    In this country, if you’re any one of those things you count less as a human being. If you’re all those things, you don’t count at all. Except as a statistic.

    I am 45 years old. I have raised six children. There are millions of statistics like me. Some on welfare. Some not. And some, really poor, who don’t even know they’re entitled to welfare. Not all of them are black. Not at all. In fact, the majority-about two-thirds-of all the poor families in the country are white.

    Welfare’s like a traffic accident. It can happen to anybody, but especially it happens to women.

    And that’s why welfare is a women’s issue. For a lot of middle-class women in this country, Women’s Liberation is a matter of concern. For women on welfare it’s a matter of survival.

    Survival. That’s why we had to go on welfare. And that’s why we can’t get off welfare now. Not us women. Not until we do something about liberating poor women in this country.

    Because up until now we’ve been raised to expect to work, all our lives, for nothing. Because we are the worst educated, the least-skilled, and the lowest-paid people there are. Because we have to be almost totally responsible for our children. Because we are regarded by everybody as dependents. That’s why we are on welfare. And that’s why we stay on it.

    Welfare is the most prejudiced institution in this country, even more than marriage, which it tries to imitate. Let me explain that a little.

    Ninety-nine percent of welfare families are headed by women. There is no man around. In half the states there can’t be men around because A.F.D.C. (Aid to Families With Dependent Children) says if there is an “able-bodied” man around, then you can’t be on welfare. If the kids are going to eat, and the man can’t get a job, then he’s got to go.

    Welfare is like a super-sexist marriage. You trade in a man for the man. But you can’t divorce him if he treats you bad. He can divorce you, of course, cut you off anytime he wants. But in that case, he keeps the kids, not you.The man runs everything. In ordinary marriage, sex is supposed to be for your husband. On A.F.D.C., you’re not supposed to have any sex at all. You give up control of your own body. It’s a condition of aid. You may even have to agree to get your tubes tied so you can never have more children just to avoid being cut off welfare.

    The man, the welfare system, controls your money. He tells you what to buy, what not to buy, where to buy it, and how much things cost. If things-rent, for instance-really cost more than he says they do, it’s just too bad for you. He’s always right.

    That’s why Governor [Ronald] Reagan can get away with slandering welfare recipients, calling them “lazy parasites,” “pigs at the trough,” and such. We’ve been trained to believe that the only reason people are on welfare is because there’s something wrong with their character. If people have “motivation,” if people only want to work, they can, and they will be able to support themselves and their kids in decency.

    The truth is a job doesn’t necessarily mean an adequate income. There are some ten million jobs that now pay less than the minimum wage, and if you’re a woman, you’ve got the best chance of getting one. Why would a 45-year-old woman work all day in a laundry ironing shirts at 90-some cents an hour? Because she knows there’s some place lower she could be. She could be on welfare. Society needs women on welfare as “examples” to let every woman, factory workers and housewife workers alike, know what will happen if she lets up, if she’s laid off, if she tries to go it alone without a man. So these ladies stay on their feet or on their knees all their lives instead of asking why they’re only getting 90-some cents an hour, instead of daring to fight and complain.

    Maybe we poor welfare women will really liberate women in this country. We’ve already started on our own welfare plan. Along with other welfare recipients, we have organized so we can have some voice. Our group is called the National Welfare Rights Organization (N.W.R.O.). We put together our own welfare plan, called Guaranteed Adequate Income (G.A.I.), which would eliminate sexism from welfare. There would be no “categories”-men, women, children, single, married, kids, no kids-just poor people who need aid. You’d get paid according to need and family size only and that would be upped as the cost of living goes up.

    As far as I’m concerned, the ladies of N.W.R.O. are the front-line troops of women’s freedom. Both because we have so few illusions and because our issues are so important to all women-the right to a living wage for women’s work, the right to life itself.

    7am texts from Paris to NYC

    Every relationship has its own unique dynamic and to be honest I love love love and am so grateful for mine. I hope to be able to encourage my husband to follow his dreams forever and this summer that means hanging behind while he literally travels the world. We don’t get to talk much but when we do its exciting! I get to hear what life is like in Morocco or Zambia or Paris. And truthfully when I found out he’d be in Paris it was hard not to feel jealous. Anyone who’s known me more than an hour knows its my dream to go to Paris, so it seemed like boring steamy New York could hardly hold my heart. But its also always been a way bigger dream of mine to be a mama, to create art in a creative space and to care for my sisters and plants- which I am lucky enough to get to do while he’s away.

    So although I miss midnight cuddles and hand holding walks I am enjoying this chapter in our journey for all that it is. Maybe someday baby and me will be joining him filling our passports with stamps and stamps.
