Speaking of leaked nudes…We live in a world that doesn’t respect women’s privacy…or women in general for that matter. I know there’s a site called pink meth that not only post women’s nudes, but also their private information, from their Facebook accounts to their home address, without the women’s consent, of course. But you can only access that site through Tor, an underground web browser, so that the perpetrators can post women’s info anonymously and avoid any legal repercussions. It’s funny, because Tor boasted that their mission is to protect privacy on the web, yet they allow such a dangerous, sexist, objectifying, privacy-invading website to exist? Who’s privacy is honored and valued here and who’s don’t worth jack shit? Cuz fuck women’s privacy right? Some horny, women’s privacy-invading, revenge porn loving mutherfucker’s “privacy” is more important? And don’t give me the “well, she’s the one taking nudes in the first place.” Oh, so that means her body and private information should automatically accessible to anyone? Her consent shouldn’t be respected? Her SAFETY not honored? Just because she takes nudes, doesn’t mean she’s giving up control of who she allows to see it. Doesn’t mean anyone is entitled to her private info! It shows how women’s consent, body, and privacy don’t worth shit in this patriarchal af world, and how no matter what, women can’t own themselves. Ugh. Fuck this shit man. #respectjensprivacy #respectwomensprivacy #respectwomen #bitchesareentitledtoprivacy #consent #respectit #respectconsent #middlefingertothemutherfuckers
White people in America are a trip… they exterminate the Native American and then try to dress just like them. What kind of necrophilia is that?

I wanted to approach you to tell you how your breakdown of the global prison-industrial-complex and school-to-prison pipeline got me thinking about how can I incorporate my social work practice and tools into the goal of prison abolition…but I got nervous, so I ended up just (intellectual) fangirling and asked you for a quick picture instead… #angeladavis #ucla #sjp #studentsforjustice in #Palestine #freepalestine #prisonindustrialcomplex #prisontoschoolpipeline #socialwerking #af
Not like I like sharing my business with the world, but some words of wisdom from a good friend. I post shit like this to keep myself accountable. And someone always find these posts helpful to their own situation somehow. So here it is. Be kind to yourself. Don’t be afraid to fall in love with yourself and just recognizing your unique abilities in general. And maybe just stop trying to run and just chill with the flow of the chaos and confusion of young adulthood. And your profs don’t matter unless they give you life advice that involves telling you to have an obsession like a 13 year old fan girl. The time is now. If you wait to be happy, you’ll never be happy… #qotd #tgif
Been thinking a lot lately about who I am right now, where I want to go in life, and who I want to become in that journey. Been questioning if I’m going on the right path. Been experiencing noticing a lot of changes both around me and within me. I fear that I’m losing the core of myself, who I fundamentally am and what I’m passionate about. I want to live a life of love and knowledge, and want to explore that artistically and express that creatively. But what standing in my way is not school or whatever excuse (tho that doesn’t help either), but myself and how I’ve come to internalized self-doubt and fear. Why am I so afraid of my own voice and vision? Why did I let others silence me and stomp out my fire? Why do I have to consent to this self-censorship? I always talk about self-love and self-care. But self-love means I need to let myself pursue my passion. I need to let myself feel okay and comfortable doing that and don’t ever let anybody says otherwise anymore. I need to stop old habits in order to go…#qotd #selflove #selfcare #selfexpression #reflection (at City of Long Beach)
Identities are formed at the unstable point where personal lives meet the narrative of history. Identity is an ever-unfinished conversation.

"I’m a sucka for a brown-skinned dude with a clean ass fade" mmm, yeah.

Now, with commentary! Yay! Slowly, but surely, I’m starting to accept and embrace that I just don’t really care to talk all the time and am content with just listening to the conversations around me and observing my surroundings. And I’m “turnt down” most of the time because my energy is valuable, but sacred and I need to conserve it. This is what it really means to be a truly “chill” person. Lol
