The lynching of Jesse Washington.
Washington was beaten with shovels and bricks,was castrated, and his ears were cut off. A tree supported the iron chain that lifted him above the fire. Jesse attempted to climb up the skillet hot chain. For this, the men cut off his fingers.
Jesse was 15.
Ad they want to teach us about morality and barbarism? Deliberately generalised to reflect the deliberate generalisation of cultures and religions that are demonised by the same groups that were, and still often are responsible for this type of inhuman behaviour.

If you were raped, it wasn’t your fault.
If you were hit, it wasn’t your fault.
If you were molested it wasn’t your fault.
If you were abused in any way, it wasn’t your fault.
I don’t care WHO abused you or WHY, it wasn’t your fault.
It wasn’t your fault.
So this just happened and I swear this is just plain bullshit. THIS ARTICLE states that anyone who is LGBT or non christians can be bullied and the state is just cool with that because of “religious beliefs”

Loving your body isn’t conceited
Feeling proud of yourself doesn’t make you a narcissist

Make Your Move is an effort from Missoula’s Intervention in Action Project, a group of community organizations dedicated to ending sexual violence. Its campaign’s goals are to: 1) Engage men and women as allies to prevent sexual violence by increasing awareness and education about the dynamics of sexual violence and 2) Encourage bystanders to foster healthy non-violent relationships and interrupt attitudes, language and actions that support sexual violence.
I’ve reblogged this before but oh wait I don’t care.
Jesus was a homeless Palestinian anarchist who held protests at oppressive temples, advocated for universal health care and redistribution of wealth, before being arrested for terrorism, tortured, and executed for crimes against the state, now go ahead and explain to me why he’d vote conservative. I’ll wait.

FRIENDLY REMINDER THAT you are allowed to feel proud of yourself for things that might seem silly to other people, like getting better at a video game or putting together a nice outfit for the next morning or finishing a book. You deserve to feel proud for your accomplishment.
