lolzandtrollz: Psychologist Writes The Most Perfect Letter To His Daughter: A psychologist goes to Target and after visiting the make-up aisle, he decides to write this letter to his young daughter: Dear Little One, As I write this, I'm sitting in the makeup aisle of our local Target store. A friend recently texted me froma different makeup aisle and told me it felt like one of the most oppressive places in the world. I wanted to find out what he meant. Flat OOOKS HAN UR LAF And now that I'm sitting here, I'm beginning to agree with him. Words have power, and the words on display in this aisle have a deep power. Words and phrases like: Affordably gorgeous, Infallible, Flawless finish, Brilliant strength, Liquid power, Go nude, Age defying, Instant age rewind, Choose your dream, Nearly naked, and Natural beauty. When you have a daughter you start to realize she's just as strong as everyone else in the house-a force to be reckoned with, a soul on fire with the same life and gifts and passions as any man. But sitting in this store aisle, you also begin to realize most people won't see her that way. Theyll see her as a pretty face and a body to enjoy. And they'll tell her she has to look a certain way to have any worth or influence. But words do have power and maybe, just maybe, the words of a father can begin to compete with the words of the world. Maybe a father's words can deliver his daughter through this gauntlet of institutionalized shame and into a deep, unshakeable sense of her own worthiness and beauty. A father's words aren't different words, but they are words with a radically different meaning: BRILLIANT STRENGTH: May your strength be not in your fingernails but in your heat. May you discem in your center who you are, and then may you fearfully but tenaciously live it out in the world. CHOOSE YOUR DREAM: But not from a department store shelf. Find the still-quiet place within you. A real dream has been planted there. Discover what you want to do in the world. And when you have chosen, may you faithfully pursue it, with integrity and with hope. NAKED: The world wants you to take your clothes off. Please keep them on. But take your gloves off. Pull no punches. Say what is in your heart. Be vulnerable. Embrace risk. Love a world that barely knows what it means to love itself. Do so nakedly. Openly. With abandon. INFALLIBLE: May you be constantly, infallibly aware that infallibility doesn't exist. It's an illusion created by people interested in your wallet. If you choose to seek perfection, may it be in an infallible grace-for yourself, and for everyone around you. AGE DEFYING: Your skin will wrinkle and your youth will fade, but your soul is ageless. It will always know how to play and how to enjoy and how to revel in this one-chance life. May you always defiantly resist the aging of your spirit. FLAWLESS FINISH: Your finish has nothing to do with how your face looks today and everything to do with how your life looks on your last day. May your years be a preparation for that day. May you be aged by grace, may you grow in wisdom, and may your love become big enough to embrace all people. May your flawiess finish be a peaceful embrace of the end and the unknown that follows, and may it thus be a gift to everyone who cherishes you. Little One, you love everything pink and frilly and I wll surely understand if someday makeup is important to you. But I pray three words will remain more important to you-the last three words you say every night, when I ask the question: "Where are you the most beautiful?" Three words so bright no concealer can cover them. Where are you the most beautiful? On the inside. From my heart to yours, Daddy you should probably go to TheMetaPicture.com lolzandtrollz: Psychologist Writes The Most Perfect Letter To His Daughter

If your first reaction is to be angry and comment why this is wrong, take a deep breath, slowly read the post again and wait for the words to sink in. Think about what this is saying and try to deeply consider what this means, especially coming from someone who is not white. No one is saying white people have perfect lives, don't have problems, or even that there's no way they can be bullied-discrimanated against because of how they look. The difference is that racism isn't just a feeling or thought, it's INSTITUTIONALIZED and SYSTEMATIC, which means that you have laws (Jim Crow, housing discrimination, voter ID laws-voter discrimination, redlining), history, powerful figures, etc etc etc against you, not just individuals being rude to you. Yes you can be white and poor, you can be white and be bullied, you can be white and have problems. It's just that these problems are NOT reinforced by or due to a historic, systematic, institutional oppression based solely on your race-ethnicity. In the US for example, the country was built by white men with laws for white men. Over time, many of these laws have changed: ex. everyone has the legal right to vote now, slavery is illegal, Jim Crow laws no longer exist. Unfortunately, these laws don't just end; they evolve. All people can vote, yet voter ID laws disproportionately prevent people of color in poor communities from voting. Slavery is illegal, yet black men disproportionately fill jail cells and are exploited for their labor while privatized prisons profit off their incarceration (see: war on drugs, or "13th" on Netflix). I can list examples like those two all day, but the point is that people of color continue to face institutionalized, systematic racism that has legal & political backing and an entire history causing and justifying it. White people do not have to deal with that, hence the term "white privilege." And, again, no one is saying white people don't have problems. That's not what "white privilege" means.: ethiopienne Pro-tip: white privilege doesn't mean white people have perfect lives. It means that white people do not have to deal with institutionalized, systemic racism in addition to their everyday problems. It means institutionalized, systemic racism does not cause white people's everyday problems.

Repost from @galaxyfeminism ยท and yes obviously *not all men* are like this, this is talking about those who are & how the feminist movement has continuously been met with opposition and hate. That's why it is frustrating when people now say "I support early feminist movements but I hate what feminism is now." That means "when it was explicitly stated in the law that women had fewer rights, that was bad, but now that women can vote and own land they just need to stop complaining about other sexist things because some women in other countries can't even vote!!!1!" Saying you have gender equality because women in your country have more rights than women in other countries is like saying you did well on the test because you got a 50% but some people got a 30% so it's okay. Strive for 100%. Let's hold ourselves to a higher standard than defining equality as "it's not explicitly stated that you don't have certain rights (*except in certain cases where local laws do restrict access to birth control-bodily autonomy or try to ban trans people from bathrooms or try to restrict rights of LGTBQ+ people)." Equality under the law doesn't necessarily result in actual equal treatment, whether you're looking at discrimination based on race, religion, gender, class, sexuality, etc. This is especially noticeable regarding race and the treatment of black people in the US, as when slavery became illegal the prison system became an institution that essentially legalized slavery (if you are not familiar with this, watch "13th" or Google "why the us prison system is legalized slavery"). And just because something is legal doesn't mean it's ethical, let's not pretend the government is the epitome of morality ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ: Early Feminists: Oh hey, we see that you can vote. We would like to vote also. I mean, since most of those laws effect us too and all Me YOU JUST WANT SUPERIORITY OVER MEN! Mid-century Feminists: Hey, that whole thing about how you can have careers and earn a living wage outside the home? Yes that sounds nice, we'd 1ike the option to do that as well. Men: YOU WANT A MATRIARCHY, THAT'S WHAT YOU WANT! Late 20th century Feminists: Hey we would like to make our own choices about ou reproductive health, just like you've always had. Men YOU ARE TRYING TO TAKE MEN'S RIGHTS AWAY! Modern-day feminists: Hey, if you could you stop sexually assaulting/harassing us and then blaming us for it, that'd be pretty great. Men: THIS IS MISANDRY, MISANDRY I SAY! FEMINISTS HAVE GONE TOO FAR! Feminists: Um Men: THE END OF MEN IS NIGH MALE OPPRESSION IS REAL! THE MATRIARCHAL AGE IS UPON US!

Steve Kerr gave his thoughts on a possible team White House visit: - โ€œWe havenโ€™t been invited. And so if weโ€™re invited, weโ€™ll definitely have a discussion. You know, Iโ€™ve been outspoken about Trump, our players have been as well. But my whole thing isโ€”I would want to talk to the team and entertain the idea of going out of respect for the institution, out of respect for the office itself, and maybe as a good gesture to the rest of the country that is so divided right now that maybe itโ€™s like, hey, letโ€™s actually, you know, try to do something thatโ€™s unifying, whether you like the person in the office or not.

The Supreme Court of the United States held Monday that prohibiting churches from participating in non-religious state benefit programs violates the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment. Such decision of The Supreme Court can be described as a huge step towards the end of Christian-orientated liberal hate. If we keep going like this, we will surely defeat all of those radical atheists in their attempts to clear the religious sphere of American society. The decision that states cannot prohibit churches from receiving otherwise generally available benefits based purely on their being a religious institution shows us that government finally has an intention to save and protect true values of our country.

via @gianellaghiglino โ€ข yes obviously "not all police officers" are racist - use excessive force, but those who do are protected by our "justice" system at the expense of the lives of people of color. We are talking about a system of institutionalized racism that allows the actions of individuals who murder black folk for no justifiable reason to be seen as acceptable and rational. This is NOT normal and this is NOT okay. And if you haven't watched the dashcam footage where PhilandoCastile is shot, please do. It's very difficult to watch but extremely important to see for yourself (and wonder how the hell anyone can watch that video and think the cop is innocent). blacklivesmatter: IT #iusticeforphiland TAKE RACIST POLICE OFF OUR STREETS DESTROY THE BLUE KLUX KLAN NO JUSTICE NO PEACE via @gianellaghiglino โ€ข yes obviously "not all police officers" are racist - use excessive force, but those who do are protected by our "justice" system at the expense of the lives of people of color.
