    You may write me down in history
    With your bitter, twisted lies,
    You may trod me in the very dirt
    But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

    Does my sassiness upset you?
    Why are you beset with gloom?
    ‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
    Pumping in my living room.

    Just like moons and like suns,
    With the certainty of tides,
    Just like hopes springing high,
    Still I’ll rise.

    Did you want to see me broken?
    Bowed head and lowered eyes?
    Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
    Weakened by my soulful cries?

    Does my haughtiness offend you?
    Don’t you take it awful hard
    ‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
    Diggin’ in my own backyard.

    You may shoot me with your words,
    You may cut me with your eyes,
    You may kill me with your hatefulness,
    But still, like air, I’ll rise.

    Does my sexiness upset you?
    Does it come as a surprise
    That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
    At the meeting of my thighs?

    Out of the huts of history’s shame
    I rise
    Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
    I rise
    I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
    Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

    Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
    I rise
    Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
    I rise
    Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
    I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
    I rise
    I rise
    I rise.

    "

    Still I Rise
    Maya Angelou

    Does it come as a surprise

    katymonster said: You are the only person I follow on social media that I have seen actually talk about the Bryan Singer allegations. My facebook feed has largely been "X-men, fuck yeah!" for days. I appreciate you being so vocal.

    Appreciated. I don’t begrudge anyone seeing the movie or commenting on it, especially since it sounds like it was pretty good, but JESUS it drives me crazy to see articles about it that don’t mention the multiple lawsuits. Especially from OUR people. Are comics news sites scared of Marvel or something? I’d hope comics world would want criminals exposed and ousted from superhero discourse as much as I do. I’ve seen far more condemnation of Goyer (who deserves the negative press, to be sure) than for Singer (who deserves AT LEAST as much).

    Yeah, I am definitely complicit in this—I’d vaguely heard rumors, but didn’t do the research or mention it during the podcast review I did of it. I’m sorry.

    We’re all doing the best we can. I’m glad people are there to say things what should be said about other things that are important to say things about.

    Gym Don't Make Fun of Me | Gustavo Alfaro Photography

    themamalogues:

    I haven’t seen the inside of a gym in awhile, but that’s not the point - we need more people taking the stand he did no matter who is being victimized, if they realize it or where it’s happening.

    C’mon, people, be decent to each other.

"At first we kept saying: ‘We’re going to beat it. We’re going to beat it.’ Then after awhile we began to realize that we might not beat it. Then toward the end, it became clear that we definitely weren’t going to beat it. That’s when she started telling me that she wanted me to move on and find happiness with somebody else. But I’m not quite there yet. Not long ago a noise woke me up in the middle of the night, and I rolled over to ask if she needed anything."

    And it upsets me that as I record this video #wewillalwayssupportyoujustin is trending on twitter. I wish all the people who were tweeting that right now would be forced to send a tweet to explain to Katie’s family in 140 characters or less why they would quote always support someone who would do something as fundamentally selfish as driving drunk.

    "A piece of paper isn’t going to save my life when he finally gets me, but at least you will know who killed me."

    Amy Rene Hargrove in a 2012 King County petition for a protection order against her violent ex-boyfriend. He strangled her to death in her mother’s house on Monday. She was 28 years old and leaves behind four children.

    Prior to murdering her, this man, who isn’t named because he hasn’t been arrested yet(!), had beaten Amy, fractured her eye socket, raped her at gunpoint, emptied her bank account, injured her cats, led the police on a high speed car chase with her children inside the car, and, of course, violated his restraining order numerous times.

    I hope he burns in hell alongside everyone who could have helped her, but didn’t.

    Domestic Violence is a real issue that needs even more funding and attention. My Mom worked her entire career (30+ years) on the state (NH) level and National level.
    In addition to cursing the abuser get involved so that this woman’s children aren’t caught in the same cycle.
    Provide funds for intervention programs, shelters, nurse training and much more.
