Anonymous asked: I think we should reclaim "special snowflake" along with pan people, non-binary people, etc., and we should all wear snowflake jewelry to show how supportive of each other and awesome we are

I’m an Atheist and I’m pretty ashamed at the Atheist group suing to get “under God” taken out of the Pledge of Allegiance. Like damn, we already get a bad name as it is. Is it that mentally damaging to say one word? If you’re that keen on not acknowledging “God” to the point…

Exactly! I think far too many people are sue happy in this day and age. People need to stop, really think about what they’re doing, and maybe do something different that actually benefits people.

It’s not about having that one word removed from the pledge of allegiance, it’s just one small battle in the fight to separate church and state. As an atheist who was raised catholic, has to hide my beliefs from my family, and has basically been forced to be religious my whole life, I feel very strongly that the word ‘God’ should be taken out of the pledge or the pledge should be abolished altogether (because it’s pretty creepy tbh). ‘God’ was added to the pledge as a political tool to combat communist ideas during the Cold War, and is only a sign of how our government is willing to use religion whenever it wants to manipulate people. It’s not a petty desire at all to want to take it out of the pledge. It sends a message that there are people out there who have had enough with religion’s involvement in the government and it’s not the most important aspect of that fight but at least it’s something tangible that’s within our abilities.

next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights

it pisses me off so much when people are like ‘you don’t need labels, just be yourself!’

did you have to pull yourself apart in order to figure out what the fuck was wrong with you and why you weren’t like everyone else

"

do you remember the first time you were called annoying?
how your breath stopped short in your chest
the way the light drained from your eyes, though you knew your cheeks were ablaze
the way your throat tightened as you tried to form an argument that got lost on your tongue.
your eyes never left the floor that day.
you were 13.

you’re 20 now, and i still see the light fade from your eyes when you talk about your interests for “too long,”
apologies littering every other sentence,
words trailing off a cliff you haven’t jumped from in 7 years.
i could listen to you forever, though i know speaking for more than 3 uninterrupted minutes makes you anxious.
all i want you to know is that you deserve to be heard
for 3 minutes
for 10 minutes
for 2 hours
forever.

there will be people who cannot handle your grace, your beauty, your wisdom, your heart;
mostly because they can’t handle their own.

but you will never be
and have never been
“too much.”

What is it?: A day for Ally allies to support the trials of Allies, who for too long have struggled to meet the basic standards of human decency.

When is it: Apparently every day.

What can I do?: We’re still working…

When white western men condemn muslim men for misogyny, they’re not doing it because they give a fuck about women, because if they did they’d start by addressing the sexism they perpetuate personally. They don’t give a fuck about women, they want an excuse to be racist.
