It’s not our job to toughen our children up to face a cruel and heartless world. It’s our job to raise children who will make the world a little less cruel and heartless.
"hey that’s a cute dress"
"IT HAS POCKETS"
"oh that’s cool but i really like the lace on the collar"
"LOOK AT THE POCKETS THEY’RE ACTUALLY BIG"
literally anyone who wears clothes made for women will freak out when there are decently sized pockets built in it’s like finding a unicorn

Protect black women at all cost
this making me tear up because..
THIS is what should be happening!
YES, protect black women at all costs. We are constantly harassed and victimized and not helped because so few people care about us. the black female body is constantly being brutalized.
protect black women
and i swear if anyone reblogs this like “what about ALL women” I will find where you live and yell though your window while you’re trying to sleep.
I follow him on twitter now. Dude is cool people.
Re:the crossed out text, saying “protect all black women” isn’t the same as saying “protect all black women and only black women and just ignore it if a woman of another race is being victimized because it’s totally okay in that case”

A fun thing to do when people accuse you of “thinking people should just have stuff HANDED TO THEM! ! !” Is to just cold be like yes. I absolutely do believe that. I think every single person should have their needs met unconditionally without ever having to prove that they “deserve” it based on arbitrary criteria of usefulness. You got me. Busted.
Pinterest/polyvore: you like a thing? Too bad, it’s sold out.
eBay: you like a thing? Too bad, someone else won the auction over you by bidding with half a second left.
Threadflip/poshmark: you like a thing? Too bad, the seller doesn’t use the site anymore and won’t ever ship it.
I think the reason I want my whole life documented is for the future. Who knows what I’m going to want to remember someday? If I have kids, who knows what seemingly mundane thing might interest them? Maybe I’ll get kidnapped or murdered and the pictures on my phone or Foursquare checkins will somehow help the police find me. Or maybe, like my granddad, I’ll get Alzheimer’s. And maybe having all this stuff available to me will help me remember things longer, or think I do, or pretend I do.
March fix! I got:
-Annabelle Long Beaded Necklace
-Filbert 3/4 sleeve popover blouse
-Melinda 3/4 sleeve blazer
-Hellen geo print pleated skirt (not pictured)
-Walt striped skirt
I really liked this fix. Style was correct and Angie, who did it, definitely has seen my Pinterest :) unfortunately I only kept the striped skirt. The other skirt was great but at $108, too expensive.
The blouse fit well everywhere but the sleeves, which had an odd cuff that was tight- I was sad about that because it would’ve been the perfect light top for summer, and the fabric seemed like it wouldn’t be a definite cat hair magnet.
The blazer had an odd shape at first and I hated the color at first. But it was great with the teal dress I had on, and I have other stuff it would’ve worked with too. But again, the sleeves and shoulder area were too tight. I think if it had had pockets and been a color I loved immediately I would have dealt with it but, boo. The necklace went well with it too but wasn’t totally my style so I returned it since I wasn’t keeping the blazer.
The skirt I did keep was great! I didn’t have any skirts like it so it was an easy decision. It’s tight so maybe borderline sexier than I’d like for work, but the length is fine.
