Anonymous asked: People need to realise there's a difference between using weed medicinally, and using it as a recreational drug. My brother in law used to smoke it regularly since he was in high school (he's 36 now) and it's fucked him up. People say it has no side-effects, but it made him depressed (almost suicidally so), paranoid, and he even started hallucinating by the end of it. Weed isn't harmless. It's just as dangerous as drink, if not moreso, and it should be treated as such.
Everything can be harmful if people don’t pay attention to the amount they are using, and weed is not an exception either. People have to understand that.

i don’t understand how it’s so difficult to comprehend the words ‘everything in moderation’!!!! the ‘weed will kill you if you even just touch it!!!1’ brigade are as annoying as the people who won’t shut up about smoking weed because both sides fail to realise it’s about moderation. one joint in four months won’t kill you or seriously harm you - in the same way that one chocolate bar in four months isn’t dangerous to your health.
Not only does feminism give woman a voice, but it also clears the way for men to free themselves from the stranglehold of traditional masculinity. When we hurt the women in our lives, we hurt ourselves, and we hurt our community, too.
Like most guys, I had bought into the stereotype that all feminists were white, lesbian, unattractive male bashers who hated all men. But after reading the work of these black feminists, I realized that this was far from the truth. After digging into their work, I came to really respect the intelligence, courage and honesty of these women.
Feminists did not hate men. In fact, they loved men. But just as my father had silenced my mother during their arguments to avoid hearing her gripes, men silenced feminists by belittling them in order to dodge hearing the truth about who we are.

Come on. That isn’t fair. Consent is needed but I’d rather a dude ask to kiss a girl than just do it without knowing whether she wanted to or not. I’m sorry consent isn’t sexy sometimes but consent isn’t supposed to be sexy, it’s just the right thing to do.
It’s crap like in the first gif that’s why many men don’t do it in the first place. And don’t ask about things more important that a kiss. Seriously. I’ve heard sentiments like this from women more times than I’m comfortable with. Think about the implications of that: "Men, you are not sexy if you would ask a girl if you can ____ her.That’s the unsexiest thing you can possibly do.” "…Because it screams a lack of confidence."
And men are fully aware this is the case for many women. I think that should be addressed more specifically. Sometimes I get sick of all this “entitlement to women’s bodies” talk without contextualizing that very important point.
Well I understand if it’s a stranger/someone you’re not dating. But if you’re dating and have kissed before it’s not bad to kiss without asking (unless they tell you not to). Obviously not about more sexual things but..
Anxiety is not rude. Depression is not selfish. Schizophrenia is not wrong. Eating disorders are not a choice. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is not crazy. Mental illness isn’t self-centred, anymore than cancer is self-centred. It’s a medical illness.
Anonymous asked: Whoa whoa whoa. Black people totally can be racist. And so can Asians, Hispanics, etc. I'm Mexican and you wouldn't believe the racial slurs that black people have thrown at me. (I grew up in a predominantly Hispanic and Black area). And the slurs my family members have said toward other PoC. I think what you meant is that black people can't be racist toward white people, but that includes any PoC not being racist toward white people.
PoC can be prejudiced but our prejudice isn’t going to cause the systematic oppresion to an entire race of people for 100’s of years which contributes to everything to discrimination in the work place and schools to being shot dead for driving around with loud music.
So no…PoC cannot be racist.
hit my FAQ for more resources and detailed information. It’s in there.
So non black person, I’m sorry you were picked on but that doesn’t come anywhere near racism.
As a black person you are very stupid, you don’t need power to be racist.
These people fail to realize there is such a thing as institutionalized racism(which they have a fucked few of that too) and individual racism. One sociology class and they go burn the fucking dictionary. Because it’s not like definitions are situational or anything.
Individual racism seems to be the thing they skipped in those sociology or gender studies classes.
