here’s a tip: if you start dating a depressed person, don’t be surprised if they are still depressed while they are dating you.
they’re not depressed because they’re single, and you are not an all-powerful cure for mental illnesses. just be there for them.

“This whole, kind of, falling in love with black things for a short period of time is essentially racist. It still is hypothesized on a great sense of separateness and a sense of treating black activities as a kind of curiosity; either benign or threatening, one or the other. When it’s threatening, ‘Oh my god, they’re going to riot or something’. And if it’s benign, ‘Let’s let them paint or draw or sing or dance, whatever they want to do. Until we, the white community, get tired of it’ and that whole structure, is essentially racist.”

This is honestly my favorite quote. It’s changed how I look at life and religion.
Can you imagine the conversation though?

i get the serial killer fascination but like hundreds of women were writing to ted bundy in prison confessing their love the media was enamored of him…this is a man who kidnapped raped and murdered over 30 women and then went back to fuck the corpses. and had absolutely no…
What I don’t understand is women who are have experienced sexual violence who are still obsessed with serial killers
Hey everyone! Betsey Stevenson here from President Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers. In honor of Women’s Equality Day, I’ll be taking over I Love Charts to tell the story of the progress we’ve made in closing the earnings gap between women and men, and the challenges women still face in the workforce.
Betsey says it better than we can. Have a look at the results.
Also, hey, Happy Women’s Equality Day, Tumblr.
Hey guys, you really want to see something interesting? Post some stats on women with young children in the workforce. Because THOSE numbers are a *hoot*.
You know what would help? Subsidized daycare for all. Did you know that in many European countries, daycare is either free or a few hundred dollars a month?
In the U.S., the cost of daycare matches or exceed rent in *every state*.
But, you know, carry on acting like things have changed…
For a century and a half, Abraham Lincoln’s signing of the Emancipation Proclamation has been the dominant narrative of African American freedom in the Civil War era. However, David Williams suggests that this portrayal marginalizes the role that African American slaves played in freeing themselves. At the Civil War’s outset, Lincoln made clear his intent was to save the Union rather than free slaves – despite his personal distaste for slavery, he claimed no authority to interfere with the institution. By the second year of the war, though, when the Union army was in desperate need of black support, former slaves who escaped to Union lines struck a bargain: they would fight for the Union only if they were granted their freedom. Williams importantly demonstrates that freedom was not simply the absence of slavery but rather a dynamic process enacted by self-emancipated African American refugees, which compelled Lincoln to modify his war aims and place black freedom at the center of his wartime policies
