okay wow, so I’m still getting messages from non black women on sources from why I wrote that this symbol

image

is for black women only. what a surprise non-black women continue to distrust black women’s contribution to feminism and our knowledge of our own community. Black women know our own history and if you can’t trust that then you don’t trust us.

this is a picture of a member of the Third World Women’s Alliance, an alliance that goes back from the 1968 Black Women’s Caucus.

her sign reads we represent black & third world womens, the most exploited & oppressed in the human race. third world women’s alliance her sign also features the symbol for black feminism.

this group used two primary symbol to represent black women’s pride and solidarity for other WOC, the first was a power fist inside the symbol for womanhood. And another with a fist clenching a gun inside the symbol for womanhood picture here :

and guess who was a founding member of the Third World Women’s Alliance? A Black women named Frances M Beal also known as Frances Beale.

The Third World Women’s Alliance isn’t the only black feminist group to use this symbol but it is one of the most documented.

Kindergarten Girl Killed, Another in Critical Condition after Hit and Run by Israeli Settler

Oct. 19 2014

A kindergarten girl Sunday died of her wounds, while another was seriously injured after an Israeli settler deliberately ran them over while they were on their way home from kindergarten near a village to the north of Ramallah, according to medical sources.

Sources said that a settler deliberately ran over Inas Khalil and Toleen Asfoor, both aged five, while walking home from kindergarten near the entrance of the village of Sinjil; a settler, coming from nearby settlements, drove toward the two girls and ran them over before fleeing the scene.

The two girls were severely injured and were transferred to hospital for treatment, where Khalil died of her critical wounds, while Asfoor is still in a very critical condition.

To be noted, Settlers are continually involved in hit and run accidents against Palestinians.

I need help

princelypaws:

i hate to do this, but the situation my family is in right now is pretty bad. we’re teetering on the edge of homelessness and need some help.

as some of you know, we moved from utah back to washington and are staying with family. but recently tensions have been high, and i’m not sure how much longer we can stay here. we’re looking at rentals and might have found a place, but everything is still pretty up in the air. my dad doesn’t make a lot, and while my mom has a job lined up, the hiring process is taking a long time and we can’t be sure of when she’ll begin getting paid. whether it be for rent, deposit, food, or other moving expenses, the money from this fundraiser would be a huge help to my family.

even if you cant donate, signal boosts are appreciated :^)

Hello, I really need financial assistance. My six year old laptop is falling apart. My work environment is transmisogynistic, heterosexist, and ableist. I’m pretty much using my work computer as my primary computer at this point. If i want a safer work environment, I need to work remotely and my laptop is in no shape for that. I’ve also used my laptop for creative endeavors and it is in no shape for that any of that. If I want to work in a safer environment and do my art again, I need a laptop.

With your help, I can get a new laptop. I might even be able to get other hardware to further my artistic endeavors and help pay some of my living expenses. Help me and I will make you all sorts of creative shinies!

There’s only 27 days and I’ve only raised less then 25% so far! Please donate, whether that’s $100 or $10 or $1, all amounts are appreciated. Signal boost this as much as possible please.

Okay guys this is kinda important. GQ just came in the mail and for the first time in a long while it had a really important article…

I just sat here for like the last half hour reading this and I’m incredibly appalled at our justice system in regards to the military. The article interviews about 23 men who have all been sexually assaulted in some branch of the military. The PTSD from sexual assault in the military is more prevalent than PTSD from combat…

If you have a chance I suggest reading this article…and the title is a quote that one of the victims Doctor told him…

Hey guys! I’m very impressed and extremely happy to see this post gaining a lot of speed over the last few days! A few people have requested it, so i’ve gone ahead and scanned the pages of the article for those who want to read it, to read. 

So, here it is!
