Children, Comfortable, and Family: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC Following If by 'the Latina thing,' she means I actually do the work instead of just talk about it, then yeah, I'm doing 'the Latina thing. Unless of course she's talking about being multilingual, which we know isn't a 'Latina thing It's a '21st century' thing Laura Ingraham And Guest Mock 'Anastasio' Ocasio-Cortez For Doi... Laura Ingraham and a guest on her prime-time Fox News show mocked Rep yahoo.com Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez O @AOC Following "How dare they refuse to say their name in a wrong accent & not mangle their own family name so that I can feel more comfortable instead of look inside myself & examine why something as small as *a person's name* makes me uncomfortable in the first place?? This is an outrage!" Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez* Following @AOC By the way: Fox News likes to say my name (incorrectly) as "Cortez," which lI can only imagine is bc that sounds more 'stereotypically' Hispanic probably incites more anxiety' for them Pro Tip: My last name is not "Cortez," just as theirs isn't "Inara" or "Carl" or "Hann ." 5:51 PM -20 Mar 2019 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Following @AOC My last name is Ocasio-Cortez. Full stop. That's my name. No, you can't say "Cortez." l've never used that in my life. "Cortez" is referring to someone else Even if they're trying to be rude + wrong, my dad's last name was Ocasio anyway. (His name was hyphenated too, though.) 6:01 PM 20 Mar 2019 Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez @AOC Following For the curious, in Latinx culture children take *both* their parents' names. It's not a "progressive, new thing." It's just how some names work. PR hyphenates, others mark differently. Your last name: the families that came together to make you. AOC is also fine though :) 6:19 PM-20 Mar 2019 imfemalewarrior: endangered-justice-seeker: Some pundits dislike it when people of color pronounce their own names correctly Getting someone’s name correct is a sign of Respect.  -FemaleWarrior, She/They

Being Alone, Club, and cnn.com: Strange Fruit. @LaEtchi If I'm "cockblocking" my friend it's because she wants me to do it, trust me lol 09/04/2014 13:55 alloutofreeds: im-not-trash-im-recyclable: blazeblastomega: gordoananke: ohhmelancholy: misunderst00ds0ul: joybeeeez: guys never realize that.  Why play games though? Just come out and say no, don’t seem to hard. cause the word “no” is not in ya’ll vocabulary. A woman says no, I don’t want to go to prom with you, and gets stabbed to death. A woman says no, I will not sleep with you, and a man go on a shooting spree.  A woman says no, I will not give you my number, and is shot outside the club. A woman says no, I don’t want you to buy me a drink, and a man shattered a glass across her face.  A woman say no, I’m a lesbian, and a man shoots both her and her girlfriend while they slept in their home. A woman says no, I don’t want to be with you any more, and a man stabs her to death and murders her dog. A woman says no, stop harassing these teenagers, and a group of men beat her to death with stones and bats, smashing her skull on the pavement. A woman says no, we aren’t married any more, leave me alone, and a man shoots her to death. A woman says no, we work together but I’m not interested in you romantically, and a man shoots her to death whilst she’s working.  A woman says no, I don’t want to sleep with you, and a man rapes, murders and then hangs her from a tree. A woman says no, I’m not interested, and a man slashes her neck open. A woman says no, I never cheated on you, and a man beats her. A woman says no, I want a divorce, and a man cuts her neck open and stabs her multiple times. You want us to start telling you no? You don’t want us to play games? Teach your fellow men to stop murdering us for it. oh I will always reblog this. Everyone should see it. I would like to add: A girl says no, boy murders her (and several others) in a school shooting.
