two sides of the same GAAAAAAAAAY
Laura & Philippa are two twenty-something ladies desperately in love with a lot of things, but mostly each other. Hailing from both sides of the Atlantic Ocean (Florida and England, respectively), they also go by the Prat and the Idiot, and aspire to one day living on the same continent. ♥

White ppl are awful appropriating entire philosophies for their own colourblind “peace :) love :) hate breeds hate :) ” shit though, take Buddhism for example, so many white people love being ~Buddhist~ and talk about how we should all live that kumbaya life and shit
but Buddhist monks in Burma are the crux of political movements and have been speaking out against government brutality against indigenous people they are right up there you know what they do? They believe in protecting them so much they put their own bodies on the line and don’t tell indigenous people who fight to protect themselves that they are bad or wrong in their love for their families
There’s Tibetan exiled monks that went all the way to Ferguson to show solidarity. Guess what they’re doing? They’re not there to pull some “lets all get along!” shebang they’re telling the police to stop because they recognize power structures and racism
So you can all get out with the fake Buddha quotes to defend your white supremacy
- Most media falsely portrayed Ferguson protests as riots and Mike Brown as a criminal
- Grand jury now has until JANUARY to decide whether to charge Darren Wilson (x) (x) (x) (x)
- Congresswoman Elanor H. Norton stands with Ferguson
- Ferguson teach-in tomorrow
- National labor leader says unions, like the nation, must confront racism
The Ferguson City Council convened for the first time since Mike Brown’s death, and proved that they literally give no fucks about what the community has to say. Added to their vague, paltry proposed reforms, seems real change will have to come in Ferguson via the ballot box. I don’t care where you live folks— let this be a lesson in voting/participating in your local elections and government! #staywoke #farfromover
My people getting it!
these people are the real heroes. not the military, not politicians, not the Hollywood actors. they risked their lives and livelihoods to challenge white supremacy and institutionalized racism.
no one ever says that Rome needed help from aliens to build their empire
#l laughed for days when i found out that #ancient egyptians used water to reduce friction and move blocks for distances #and that this was literally DEPICTED ON THEIR HIEROGLYPHICS #but ~western archaeologists~ #thought that the pouring of water depicted ~superstitious rituals~ #jfc
I’m sorry you’ve been made to believe that the whole of Africa is poor, I really am..
i’ve legitimately had a girl ask me “are there streets in Egypt?”
Remember: just because you identify as non-binary doesn’t mean you have to aspire to be read as androgynous or genderless.
"We can’t use A in our acronyms because it allows shitty allies to weasel themselves in!"
Perhaps if the lgbtqia community prioritized and cared more about ASEXUALS than about straight allies, we wouldn’t have this problem.
The A is not for allies. It has never been for allies. The A is for aces. Do not rob actual members of the lgbtqia community of the little representation we have for the sake of fucking straight people.
The A is fucking necessary.
|What is up with you hating on straight people lately my god|
what is up with straight people undermining queerness and inserting themselves into places they don’t belong just to add their unwanted opinion to everything though
for my next big comedy act i’m going to stand up and read excerpts from the heterosexual awareness month site
"We are one of the only groups who no longer have a respected voice in this modern world."
