“People of faith don’t have a monopoly on mercy, and they don’t have one on abuse, either. The truth is the only thing that separates atheists and theists is belief or lack thereof in God. That’s it. So when I tell you that I’m not angry at religion, but that I am angry specifically at fundamentalists—and yes, even atheists who refuse to acknowledge the real and living complexity of human belief—that is why.

Anger can be a useful thing; even the Hulk learned that. So for as long as I’m angry—and that might be for a very long time, indeed—I’m going to channel that anger as constructively as I possibly can. I’m going to make sure that I’m angry at the right people and engaged in the right battles.

As for allies: I’ll take them where I find them. I don’t care if you go to church, or if you’ll spontaneously combust if you cross a church’s threshold. If you care about justice, you’re with me.”

fyi the post that’s going around captioned “emma watson’s response to the nude photo leak threats” (or any variation thereof) of her showing her breasts isn’t real

it’s a photoshop of this picture she did for mariano vivanco and by reblogging that post you’re violating her just as much as the rest of the creeps threatening to release nude pictures of her

thanks, bye

"Rahm Emanuel is not caring about our schools; he is not caring about our safety. He only cares about his kids. He only care about what he needs. He do not care about nobody else but himself.

He let Barbara Byrd-Bennett, a woman that’s from Detroit who don’t even know the streets of Chicago where I’m from, come in and close these schools.” [x]

Look at the passion y’all!!!

Teach the babies that their words matter yess

Speak it, warrior.

I’M NOT DOING MY HISTORY PAPER


yet.

People keep asking me what I want to do after graduation.

I want to have a place to call my own.

I want to make myself coffee and breakfast in the morning.

I want to be very good at my job.

I want to feel a little bit tired when I come home from work. 

I want to volunteer and go to meetings at night.

I want to know my neighbors.

I want to get a beer with my friends on the regular.

I want to run through my neighborhood.

I want to read before bed. 

I want to adopt a dog. 

That’s what I want.
