society: oh you have your period? well you have two options.
society: you can use sanitary pads, which make you feel like you are wearing a diaper, and have the added fun benefit of being extremely uncomfortable and give you the extreme paranoia that they will not be enough coverage and at any moment with any movement or sudden sneeze you'll bleed over onto your clothes and walk around all day with blood stained trousers while everyone points and laughs at you.
woman: sounds awful. what's my second option.
society: a penis shaped wad of cotton that you shove uncomfortably inside yourself and it catches the blood before it leaves your body.
woman: still seems pretty awful.
society: wait! it gets better! there's the outside chance that using those will kill you!
woman: well, are they at least free? like how men can have access to free condoms? i mean, it's not like i'm choosing for this to happen.
society: HAHAHA! that's funny. no, you have to pay for them. and they're really fucking expensive.
society: oh, and if you tell anyone that you ARE on your period, your judgement, opinions, and reactions are going to be dismissed as the crazy ramblings of a lunatic.
woman: i think i'll go with my third option.
society: what third option?
woman: i think i'll bleed on everything you love.

MOTHERS DON’T CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR SONS AND TEACH YOUR DAUGHTERS TO CLEAN UP AFTER THEIR FATHERS AND BROTHERS. TEACH THEM TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN MESSES. DON’T LET THEM GET ACCUSTOMED TO A WOMAN DOING EVERYTHING FOR THEM AND DON’T LET YOUR DAUGHTER GET ACCUSTOMED TO DOING EVERYTHING FOR MALES.
i wish you could have said this to my mom 10 years ago shiiit.

Kwame Ture, formerly known as Stokely Carmichael, is a man that is often unheard of and rarely spoken about. Born in the island of Trinidad, he at a very young age knew the importance of education. He would move to New York at the age of eleven, where he would eventually be accepted into the prestigious Bronx High School of Science with his outstanding Academics. After Graduation, he would attend Howard University which would change his life. While in school, he began to become very active in Black organizations and was a huge advocate of Civil Rights. His life is very interesting because at first he was a huge supporter of Martin Luther King’s Non-Violent Philosophy. He would soon join the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee and participate in Freedom rides all over the country for the next 3 years. During his time in the group, he would be arrested over 29 times for his efforts to register Blacks to vote. The Police and many other Whites were brutal to young Kwame and he was often viciously beaten, spit on, hit with cans, and sometimes even lit cigarettes. It is these experiences that would cause him to change his philosophy. He now believed in self-defense and said it was a god given right of man to defend himself.“In order for nonviolence to work, your opponent must have a conscience. The United States has None.” He would then join the Black Panther Party but did not stay long. He did not agree with the Panthers allowing Whites to help them. He believed that White Aid would erode Black Self Reliance and agreed, wholeheartedly, with Malcolm X that White activists should organize their own communities first. He would later join Kwame Nkrumah’s All African People’s Revolutionary Party, where he would spend over 30 years as a devout leader. The reason he changed his name was to honor his mentor Kwame Nkrumah and idol Sekou Ture. Kwame Ture is revolutionary that should never be forgotten. He dedicated his life to his people and liberating their struggle. He was the first to coin the term “Institutional Racism” so when you hear the phrase, you are looking at the legacy of this genius. In time, he would die from cancer and in his last words he would shout, “Organize, Organize, Organize!!!!”Written by @KingKwajo

SPRINGFIELD —- Illinois public schools that teach sex education will be required to provide information about birth control under a measure the Senate sent to Gov. Pat Quinn on Wednesday.
This would still allow schools to opt out of providing sex education entirely, but now schools that do teach it have to include methods of birth control, and can’t rely on abstinence-only courses. It’s a start!
