this was taken at the Museum of London, Docklands - it has a large section about London’s role in slavery, and how slavery contributed to modern racism. 

I think that a lot of museums are finally starting to try and take a more proactive stance on how they present their exhibits and information about them.
For more on this kind of arrangement, I high recommend taking a look at these submissions from xanthy-m on the Swedish Historical Museum:



Oh what was that about black ppl in England not being present?
Since BEFORE THE 1500s?
MEANING DURING THE MEDIEVAL PERIOD
So yall “historically accurate” fuckers can be quiet

On Virginia Woolf’s conception of privacy: “Many people accept the idea that each of us has a certain resolute innerness … What interested Woolf was the way that we become aware of that innerness. We come to know it best, she thought, when we’re forced, at moments of exposure, to shield it against the outside world.”

    "At what point do you take girls out of school altogether because boys can’t handle it?"

    Parent of a female teen whose school banned leggings

    #yesallwomen have a right to an education without fashion policing by sexist administrators

    (via meetingsinthedesert)

    ^ this, tho… the message in these ridiculous dress codes remains “boys deserve an undistracted education, and you-GIRL-are a distraction… and your education comes second. You should be grateful, anyway… it’s really more than you deserve.” and i actually am not going to repeat how it reinforces rape culture because really, i’m just so damn tired of the messages we send young women about being nothing more than an accesory in a man’s life… fuck that. and fuck awful myopic dress codes… (via ginandbird)

    This parent is right.  The school is sending a message that girls’ clothes are supposed to distract boys; that boys can use them as an excuse, that girls when assaulted should blame themselves because they must have worn the wrong thing, because their clothes made them unfit to mingle with their peers.  Have I got that right? (rhetorical)

“I was wearing an old Salvation Army shop boy’s suit. As I went to the bathroom I heard people saying, ‘Hey, faggot’. They slammed my head into a locker. I fell to the ground and they started to kick the shit out of me. I had to have stitches. The school kicked me out, not the bullies.“Years later, I went to a coffee shop and I ran into one of the girls who’d kicked me, and she said, ‘Winona, Winona, can I have your autograph?’ And I said, ‘Do you remember me? Remember in seventh grade you beat up that kid?’ And she said, ‘Kind of’. And I said, ‘That was me. Go fuck yourself.’”

    Anonymous: Hypothetically, if there was a place in the middle of a large block of land, so no nearby roads, and no predators, with the only wildlife being pests or invasive species, would it be alright to have an outdoor cat? Entirely hypothetical question and I don't know if such a place even exists, but I am curious.

    I’m not playing these “what if” games. It isn’t okay to let your cat outside unless it is in an enclosure or on a harness. It isn’t okay if you’re on mars, it isn’t okay if you’re the president, it isn’t okay if you the fucking virgin mary. 

    -Ry

    My opinion would be no, too.

    First of all, such a place doesn’t exist. 

    Second of all, why? A cat has absolutely no need to be outside. They’re domesticated and have no place outdoors - even the hypothetical perfect world that you describes. It should also be mentioned that outdoor cats in and of themselves are invasive species, as in they are not a native organism anywhere on the planet. 

    If you lived in the middle of a large block of land with no roads, predators with only pests/invasive species, you cannot control the weather. You can’t control how a cat may be injured or get parasites, or if these pests/invasive species suddenly decide to fight back and land your cat a nasty injury that becomes infected. There are too many factors than the ones you’ve just described, going far beyond the spectrum of what might immediately hurt your cat.

    There is no reason why a house cat should be outdoors. None.

    the thing to realize here is that conservatives find the idea of paying workers a livable wage so absurd that they make hyperbolic comparisons like this

    because fifteen dollars an hour and a hundred thousand dollars an hour both mean the same thing to them: more than you deserve
