    The African Renaissance Monument in Senegal, larger that the Eiffel tower and the statue of liberty .. Things you don’t see in mainstream media.

    This is beautiful.

    I think this picture better illustrates the size of that monument.

    I never even knew this existed this makes me so happy to find out about it

    These are PUPPIES, crammed into a cage so small, they can’t move. They will remain this way until sold at meat market. There are 11 countries in which dogs and cats are eaten, and (most notably) in Korea and China, they are brutally tortured before killing, in the belief that adrenaline released during extreme torture “flavors” the meat and adds to a man’s sexual prowess.

    Go vegan.

    Your chicken dinner was treated like this.

    👆 my point exactly. everyone thinks it’s such a damn crime to eat puppies while they devour chicken nuggets. animal cruelty extends to all living creatures. not just the kind we consider ‘pets’.

    I’m reblogging this again because I love the message behind it and I think it needs to be passed on.

    My mother let us choose. My brother and I decided that religion just wasn’t for us. She reacted neutrally and we were not baptised, nor did we make our first holy communion.

    My sister chose religion. She woke my mum up every Said “its time to go to church”. She was baptised at 8 years old when she was able to do it for herself, read the relevant parts herself, and knew the choices she was making rather than it being made for her. And she was so happy. Religion should be a choice, and one that you are fully consenting and happy to make.

    She’s now 12 and she still has the cross that was a gift at her baptism above her bed, and still reads her little bible from time to time. She doesn’t attend church any more, because she doesn’t feel that church is necessary to have a god.

    I am an atheist, as I have stated. But I’m here for her if she ever wants to talk to me about her religion and all things associated.

    That is how religion should be. For everyone.

    This is such a beautiful message.

    This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

  8. "Whenever I hear the "Women are paid $.78 for the man’s $1" I flip it around.

    Men make $1.22 for every woman’s $1.

    It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …"

    bisexual activist and queer theory blogger Patrick RichardsFink 

    this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1

    A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes

    A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes

    A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes

    A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes

    A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes

    That’s some bullshit right there.

    Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.

    Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.
