On this day in 1963, Denise McNair, Cynthia Wesley, Addie Mae Collins, and Carol Robertson were killed during the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing. #4LittleGirls #KnowYourHistory

(Reblogged from sonsandbrothers)
To confuse nature with nurture is a philosophical mistake of the first class…When, for most of the centuries of recorded history, the female half of the population was nurtured—reared and treated—as inferior to the male half, that nurturing made them apparently inferior when they matured. To have correctly attributed that apparent inferiority to their nurturing would have instantly indicated how it could be eliminated. But when it is incorrectly attributed to their nature at birth, it is accepted as irremediable. What I have said about the sexist prejudice concerning the inequality of men and women applies to all the racist and ethnic prejudices about human inequality that still exist among mankind. All these apparent inequalities are nurtural. None is a natural inequality between one human subgroup and another…[I]ndividual inequalities, when they are recognized as subordinate to the basic equality of all human beings in their common humanity or specific nature, do not generate difficulties that must be overcome or eradicated in order to increase social justice. But when inequalities between human subgroups that are entirely due to nurture are taken for natural inequalities, that mistake must be overcome and eradicated for the sake of social justice.

In a day in age where a white dude receives nearly 60 grand for eating a potato salad, it is especially important to foster a sense of community by donating and promoting to activist projects that go perpetually unsupported. 

We hope that the tumblr community can help change this by supporting a project created by a woman of color, a queer woman, and a queer woman of color. 

With that being said, the Denton, Texas Femme Fest Organizers/the creator ofMuchacha Fanzine are excited to announce the biggest project we have ever taken part in. We have teamed up and have worked endlessly this summer to share this dream with you… FUNDRAISING TO OPEN UP THE NONPROFIT INDEPENDENT FEMINIST BOOKSTORE & COMMUNITY CENTER IN DENTON, TEXAS, SOUTHERN WOMAN’S BOOKSTORE!!! The bookstore would include diverse books & zines with an emphasis on women, POC & LGBTQ writers, artistic events (open mics, musical concerts, film screenings, art shows), consciousness-raising workshops, and more! 

We believe in the power of representation. A feminist bookstore and community center would help a young woman see her own story in print. It would help a person of color learn about their history and see a name like theirs on the shelves. It would help an LGBTQ individual locate themselves within a story, when they are often rendered invisible.

WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP OUR DREAM BECOME REALITY: 

  • Donate through our GoFundMe! (Each donation matters despite the amount. Seriously if every tumblr feminist got out their credit card-if they have one- and spent 1 minute of their time to donate $5, a safe radical activist bookstore and cultural community center would be able to exist and thrive and positively impact thousands of people in the South where a space like this is desperately needed)
  • Reblog this post! 
  • Spread the Word! Like us on Facebook! 
  • Check out our Website! 
  • Follow us on Twitter!
  • Donate books and zines! (Email us at SouthernWomansBookstore@gmail.com for a mailing address to send them or for any questions/comments/concerns.) 

Stay tuned for the Third Annual Denton, Texas Femme Fest Nov 22, location TBA. Femme Fest this year will be benefiting Southern Woman’s Bookstore. We are currently looking for bands and artists to join our Southern Grrrl Revolution.

In a world where women, POC, LGBTQ projects are time and time again unsupported, please please please consider being involved in the preservation of our knowledge, activism and art!!!

Tumblr Community, I double dare you to support small town grrrl activism and reblog this. Let’s shoot for one million reblogs.

Gabby Wants Badass QTPOC Couples For An Autostraddle Post

dynastylnoire:

autostraddle:

i’m currently working on a post highlighting QTPOC couples. Both or all individuals involved in the relationship need to identify as POC and that that includes multiracial queers and folks from any non-white backgrounds. The post is a mix of famous, internet famous, and couples we know. I’m trying to make the list as inclusive and exhaustive as possible. If you have any tips you can contact me: Gabby@autostraddle!

The Ferguson City Council convened for the first time since Mike Brown’s death, and proved that they literally give no fucks about what the community has to say. Added to their vague, paltry proposed reforms, seems real change will have to come in Ferguson via the ballot box. I don’t care where you live folks— let this be a lesson in voting/participating in your local elections and government! #staywoke #farfromover 

My people getting it!

these people are the real heroes. not the military, not politicians, not the Hollywood actors. they risked their lives and livelihoods to challenge white supremacy and institutionalized racism.

God bless them

Tomorrow is September 11th. If you see somebody being Islamophobic toward Muslims or non-Muslim Arabs and Sikhs, don’t stand by and do nothing. Shut that shit down!
