“And you know what the irony is…?[Martin Luther King Jr.] would not be invited to the very march in his name, because he would talk about drones. He’d talk about Wall Street criminality. He would talk about working class being pushed to the margins as profits went up for corporate executives in their compensation. He would talk about the legacies of white supremacy. Do you think anybody at that march will talk about drones and the drone president? Will you think anybody at that march will talk about the connection to Wall Street? They are all on the plantation.”

You know how it is, right, ladies? You know a guy for a while. You hang out with him. You do fun things with him—play video games, watch movies, go hiking, go to concerts. You invite him to your parties. You listen to his problems. You do all this because you think he wants to be your friend.

But…

When I’m hanging out with my friends even though I’m frantic about my workload

And then I debated whether or not to put it on Tumblr…but I decided it was important. Because in my own way, I can (unfortunately) point out exactly what is wrong with men when they don’t realize how hard it is to be a woman. How we do not have equal opportunities and freedoms in everyday life….

That rant you’ve always wanted to give about the Tea Party? Right here.

“It would be a happy state of affairs if wisdom were something that could flow between us through mere contact, from the one who is full to the one who is empty, like water flowing along a strand of wool from a full cup to an empty one.”
