"We real cool. We
Left school. We
Lurk late. We
Strike straight. We
Sing sin. We
Thin gin. We
Jazz June. We
Die soon."

Pierre Bourdieu, Distinction
“The ‘eye’ is a product of history reproduced by education.”

(via cunicular)

i was going to say “if i do this…” but there’s no if about it. it’s an inevitability and i am sorry and i am trying to make myself more self-aware and please never feel afraid to tell me, ever, i will never react badly to it

(via liamdryden)

“The thing about patriarchy is that individual men, gay and straight, are often really wonderful people who you love deeply, but they have internalized some really poisonous shit. So every once in a while they say or do something that really shakes you because you’re no longer totally certain they see you as a human being, and you feel totally disempowered to explain that to them.”

bell hooks (via brightonfeministcollective)

I was reminded of this quote when I saw the video of the awesome woman macing that horrendous guy in the convenience store. The way he laughed at her discomfort and anger, and how powerful that is as a tool of oppression.

(via fluffyfemme)

People often make jokes about things they are scared of.
It’s why oppressed people laugh at their oppressors, but it’s also why oppressors think it’s hilarious when oppressed people stand up for themselves.

(via wackyshenanigans)

“Often in my lectures when I use the phrase “imperialist white-supremacist capitalist patriarchy” to describe our nation’s political system, audiences laugh. No one has ever explained why accurately naming this system is funny. The laughter is itself a weapon of patriarchal terrorism.”

Women in Ancient Egypt

  • Women and men in ancient Egypt enjoyed the same legal and economic rights. Women could divorce their husbands and remarry.
  • Women and men were also subject to the same punishments.
  • Women worked many of the same jobs men did, most in the fields. Life was tough, though women did live longer than men (58, 54)
  • Women could hold political office, with several examples of female pharaohs available. There were at least 5, not including the Cleopatras and other Greek rulers.
  • Women could also hold lower political office, with many being scribes.
  • Women who were on their periods were considered to be removing impurities. They were excused from work and forbidden from some religious areas.
  • It is worth noting that when Egypt was conquered by Greece, Egyptian women retained many more rights than their Greek counterparts.
