its really important for men to stand up to other men who say terrible and sexist shit

because sexist men dont listen to what women have to say

literally the most important thing men can do if they want to call themselves feminist allies

Still quite a bit left to do, but it’s really coming together! I like the colors in this dress so much more then my red and white version. I think it looks a lot less juvenile and way more magical. 

It’s made from organza and chiffon with a tulle overlay and $60 of fake flowers.

I have information about how I’m making it here! And a video about it here

The United Nations asks the Japanese government to respect Okinawan people’s opposition against the Henoko relocation plan →

pekopekopompom:

To the Japanese government which does not recognize Okinawan people as “Indigenous People,” one of the committee members pointed out that it is important to consider how people in the Ryukyus identify and define themselves. Another pointed out UNESCO recognizes that Ryukyu/Okinawa has unique language, culture, and tradition and urges the Japanese government to recognize and protect such uniqueness. There have also been many inquiries about policies to protect Ryukyuan languages (Shimakutuba). A representative of the Japanese government asserted, “Those who live in Okinawa Prefecture or natives of Okinawa are not generally considered to be a group of people who share distinct biological or cultural characteristics. Therefore, they are not considered to be the subject of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination.”

Okay, so you act like you didn’t put display Ryukyuan people in cages like animals or call Ryukyuans monkeys for being tan/hairy with big eyes or make Ryukyuan people wear dialect cards and be shamed or even killed for speaking even a word of their mother tongue or post signs on buildings saying “No Ryukyuans allowed” cause Ryukyuans are “THE SAME” as Japanese people, right? You (though not without the U.S.) caused an estimated 1/3-1/5 of the (civilian) Okinawan population alone to be killed during the Battle of Okinawa through starvation, using them as human shields, and ordering them to commit mass suicide and on top of that, basically flattening the island to rubble, destroying precious cultural monuments and FAMILY TOMBS and also leaving those that did survive with nothing to eat…but that’s just cause Okinawans just so happened to be LIVING ON THAT ISLAND FOR CENTURIES and you just decided to continue to use it as your battleground like it was nothing, right? Oh, but everything’s fine now in 2014, we don’t treat Okinawans like lesser-thans, they’re “one of us” after all…we just shove the majority of the U.S. military bases on their tiny little islands (which are causing irreversible destruction to the environment, disturbance amongst the local people, and even kidnappings, rapes, and deaths) while we just have a few specks on Honshu and Kyushu all while continuing to try to erase any negative actions that the Japanese military did towards Okinawans, Ainu, Koreans, Chinese, Filipinos, and other people from textbooks.

Newsflash, if Ryukyuans were so damn “similar” to Japanese, you wouldn’t have had to ban our languages, culture, or religion and you wouldn’t have had to imprison the last Ryukyuan King and overthrow the Ryukyu Kingom. There would be no need to forcefully assimilate Ryukyuans but you DID and the consequences are still painfully evident. You banned Ryukyuan languges and certain aspects of the culture for so long that young Ryukyuan people these days are barely even knowledgeable/aware of them and this is all adding to your erasure of our identity as a whole. It’s so sick.

Such bullshit. When UNESCO is getting on your ass, you know you’ve got issues.

Dear musicians and marchers,

If you do not audition, there is zero percent chance that you will make it in. 

If no one has told you that you are good enough to go for it, here is your motivation. After all, part of succeeding is ability, but most of it depends on your drive to make it. 

So go for it. Give it a shot. Here is your sign to go out and do it.
