Mental illness is like fighting a war where the enemy’s strategy is to convince you that the war isn’t actually happening. — Unknown (via exoticwild)

Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass. — Daniell Koepke (via arabarabarab)

Transphobes will still hate trans people regardless of how nice we are.
Queerphobes will hate queer people regardless of how nice we are.
Sexists will still hate women regardless of how nice we are.
Racists will still hate people of color regardless of how nice we are.
It doesn’t matter what we say or how we say it, they will still hate. And if your “support” is totally dependent on oppressed people’s tone and attitude, then you weren’t a supporter to begin with.

(✿ﾉ◡‿◡)ﾉ *:･ﾟ✧*:･ﾟ✧ reminder that if u can’t get out of bed today that’s okay and if u feel like crying on public transportation that’s okay and if u got a bad mark on a test that’s okay because there are still so many forests to explore and cities to get lost in and dogs to pet and u are only a small star in a big universe and u are doing so well
Power Structure of Oppression
Yes. Yes. YES.
I’m just gonna leave this here, in case anyone thought their fee fees were more important than systematic oppression

haha faces. I meant to do a Cecil based on Cykeem White because that man is gorgeous. Of course, I can’t do different faces well enough so he didn’t turn out the way I wanted to.
Then we’ve got an attempt at my Cecil.
FUCK WHITE VALE
Cecils (Left to Right)
Row 1: whimsicalcircles, vojuu, isocil, internleland, keysandtoffee
2: astrogyaru, toxibutt, nikipaprika, epicukulelesolo, suzannethurgood
3: sirida, mangomangoes, fashiondisastercecil, goddess-in-green, warpspeedcrotch
Other Cecils that didn’t quite fit into the collage:
twergo, chess-ka, lotthirtyseven, rosynose, bicatperson, avocadopolymath, clockworkkite, weallmosey
I just want to say I LOVE ALL THESE CECILS EQUALLY. If I didn’t include yours into the collage it’s because I couldn’t fit them without making them too small/cutting off important details/not being able to get them alone in a pic. SORRY <3 I’ll try to make a 3rd one and put your cecil in!
my gender is VAST and COSMIC and NEBULOUS and UNCHARTED and you expect me to check “m” or “f” ???
• a transphobic woman is not a feminist
• a racist woman is not a feminist
• a homophobic woman is not a feminist
• exclusionary feminism is not feminism
I agree with the idea behind this post, but I don’t like the way some feminists use this line of thinking to dismiss the problems of transphobia, racism, and homophobia that exist in feminist circles.
For example, feminist conferences and feminist resource center’s… often many of them are full of racist/transphobic/homophobic women, so much so that trans women, women of color, and queer women do not feel safe in those spaces.
But when it comes time to call out that issue and do the actual work it takes to get those toxic, exclusionary women out of feminist spaces and make feminism safe for ALL women,
there are unfortunately many (white/cis/straight) women who are only willing to absolve feminism of any responsibility for these issues.
"Oh well they’re not REAL feminists."
Okay then, why are you allowing them to overrun feminist spaces then? Why aren’t you calling them out for appropriating feminism as a guise for their hateful agendas? Why aren’t you don’t the work required to actually HELP?
"Not my problem. I’m a feminist. Women like that aren’t."

Anonymous asked: To be fair I was thinking of starting a 'celebrate White Cecil' troll blog and then posting about ten pictures of croissants per day. Mainly to confuse the fuck out of White Vale fans.
