Italian special force soldier after 72 hour battle in Afghanistan

School for black civil rights activists. Young girl being trained to not react to smoke blown in her face, 1960

Disability activists abandon their wheelchairs and mobility devices and crawl up the 83 stone steps of the U.S. Capitol Building demanding the passage of the American with Disability Act, March 12, 1990.

A south Korean man cries as his brother is on a train back to North Korea. Separated by the war, they have not seen the other since 1950. They were allowed to see each other for three days, but one will go back spending life in luxury, and the other in hard labour

 The Mocambo night club in East Hollywood, a white’s only club, was the most popular dance spot around but would not book Ella because she was black. Marilyn, who adored Ella Fitzgerald and her music, called the manager and demanded that they book Ella immediately

Werfel, a 6 year old orphan from Austria has just been given his first pair of new shoes by the American Red Cross,1946.

The last Jew of Vinnitsa

Until the mid-60s, the Aboriginals came under the Flora And Fauna Act, which classified them as animals, not human beings. This also meant that killing an Aboriginal meant you weren’t killing a human being, but an animal.

They’re poisoning them early

Her face is the overall emotion that everyone should be experiencing right now

This isn’t funny or cute. He already feels entitled to her body.

peach--queen: I just feel like I'm drowning in the "all-inclusive" idea of feminism being spread on tumblr and I feel very deeply that men do not belong in this subject. There's this post going around basically about boys being bullied for being 'girly' and how sexism hurts men too and I just wanted to set myself on fire. it gets me legit upset that ppl on here really think men experience equally valid problems with sexism. I'm so sick of ALWAYS being made to include them in fucking everything!!!

misandry-mermaid:

It’s sad and awful that boys are bullied for being perceived as effeminate. And feminism does address that by, ya know, wanting to break down gender roles and change gender-conformity expectations to not be strict or defined.  But for the men complaining about boys being bullied (mainly by other boys and men, btw) for “acting like girls”, do they realize that girls experience the same breed of bullying simply for existing as girls??

You cannot call a society which has 3.5 million homeless and 18.5 million vacant homes civil. That’s violent and morally bankrupt.

"Cops are just doing their job" always struck me as weird because it implies that somehow the fact that they are harassing, killing, and imprisoning people, enforcing institutional racism, and destroying communities is less morally reprehensible if they do it for money.

The bad news is that there’s no one who’s going to come and save you on this; no one is going to appear to show you what to do. The good news is that you are your own best and bravest rescuer. When you unearth one thing you didn’t know about yourself, it can be an opportunity to dive in and know all the things you were afraid to. It’s the scariest thing you’ll ever do and the most valuable.

I have to link this again because it’s a great expression of the terror and power in self-knowledge, in knowing that you’re completely responsible for yourself, but that you have been so utterly wrong about something as fundamental as who that was (via haveyouheardaboutfeminism)
