    The emotion and all of the sweat…. shit is hard to look at, even if its only a picture

    I didn’t want to reblog this because it’s hard to look at, but people SHOULD see it.

    We SHOULD see a father mourning his teenage son.

    We SHOULD see how a killing like Mike’s can take a toll on not only a community, but a family.

    It’s as easy for young black men to become martyrs as it is for them to become victims. They can never just be humans. 

    We can never just be.

    10 year old Yemeni girl smiling after she was granted a divorce from her husband- a 30 year old man

    Here’s what I found after looking into it. 

    Nujood Ali was nine when her parents arranged a marriage to Faez Ali Thamer, a man in his thirties. Regularly beaten by her in-laws and raped by her husband, Ali escaped on April 2, 2008, two months after the wedding.

    On the advice of her father’s second wife, she went directly to court to seek a divorce. After waiting for half a day, she was noticed by a judgeMohammed al-għadha who gave her refuge. He had both her father and husband taken into custody.

    Indeed, publicity surrounding Ali’s case is said to have inspired efforts to annul other child marriages, including that of an 8 year old Saudi girl who was allowed to divorce a middle-aged man in 2009.

    But in 2013 Ali reported to the media that her father had forced her out of their home and is withholding her money granted by publishers. Her father has also arranged a marriage for her younger sister, Haifa.

    Also this girl has her own book

    I just want some feminists to focus more on this than on defending Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian.

    Realistically, what can they do? Most of the feminists that you likely encounter are based in USA, Canada, maybe UK. What can they do to affect attitudes and policies in a place like Yemen?

    They can raise awareness. Tumblr is a global site where you can donate to people in many countries to aid them.

    A very good thing they can do, for one, is set up donations for this kid or other kids. They can put efforts to start up shelters for such incidents.

    There’s a lot of things western feminists can do. This post only has almost 9k posts, whereas a post about male tears has 36K.

    yo just because girls in Yemen are getting married at 10 doesn’t make the DEATH AND RAPE THREATS that Anita and Zoe are receiving less real or less urgent, and completely dismisses the fact that there are indeed ten year old girls in America and Europe who face sexual abuse and horrific physical and emotional violence each day.  The implication that it’s up to Western feminists to go into cultural situations we don’t understand and save these poor helpless brown women when they’re already doing an impressive amount of work to fight patriarchal violence in their own countries is not only beyond patronizing but smacks of white savior bullshit.

    Reasons why I’m excited for “Dear White People:”

    • Black actors portraying 3-dimensional characters
    • Honest social commentary
    • Targeted to the college age demographic
    • Thorough exploration of the various forms of racism in America
    • Tessa Thompson’s voice and Tyler William’s afro wig

    Reasons why I’m not excited for “Dear White People:”

    • White people calling it racist
    • Mainstream media agreeing with the white people calling it racist
