Malcolm X: Our History Was Destroyed By Slavery 

on March 17, 1963 in Chicago.

see how little we get taught about history - I never had any idea why Malcolm X used the ‘X’. 

How come I didn’t know this

Also that crusty old white man called the named ‘gifted’. Jesus.

I can’t write on my blog because he might read it. He says he likes girls like me, girls who are quiet and unassuming on the surface, yet so dark to the touch. You’ve got skin like suicide, he says. Skin like jumping out of a burning building. Heart like a car crash. Eyes like you’ve heard this all before.

I think you’re seeing me as more than I am, I tell him. What makes you say that? Because, I say. You’re boxing me into some tragedy. What if I want to be a soap opera? Or a comedy? You, he says, looking at me very seriously. You were not made to be enjoyed and then forgotten.

I am trying to wrap my head around being everything to someone. I remind myself that this is what I’ve always wanted-to be an idea, elusive and free, floating in and out of people’s lives. This is what I’ve asked for, but I never expected it to feel this lonely.

I am not simply tragedy. Not just epic novel, everlasting play, straight-to-VHS sob story. I contain elements of more, with my skin like a drugstore paperback, heart like a scratched record, and eyes like I’ve skipped ahead and read the last page. I am not not looking for a writer to brand my story. Nor am I a book you can store alongside your other tragedies. I am the whole damn library.

but why

Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.

The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.

P.s.. For the graph above if anyone is wondering… the dark ages were NOT responsible for the burning of the famous main library at Alexandria & is not trying to put blame on anyone.

"Except you can’t show a topless woman on TV - and you can’t defibrillate a woman in a bra. So victims of heart attacks on TV are always male. Did you know that a woman having a heart attack is more likely to have back or jaw pain than chest or left arm pain? I didn’t - because I’ve never seen a woman having a heart attack. I’ve been trained in CPR and Advanced First Aid by the Red Cross over 15 times in my life, the videos and booklets always have a guy and say the same thing about clutching his chest and/or bicep.

And people laugh when I tell them women are still invisible in this world."



re: feministing - for women, heart attacks look different

My mom worked for 25 years as an ER nurse and is convinced that a lot of women die simply because folks only know heart attack symptoms that occur in males.

  • In high school they told us: There will be no grades in a class except the midterm and the final, so you have to study hard because failing one test means you fail the class.
  • Once I was in college a professor said: Hey, you guys are working really hard on your third paper, so I'm just going to cancel the final and give everyone a hundred on it.
  • In high school they told us: In college, class always begins exactly at the scheduled start time. If your class is at 9 AM and you get there at 9:01, the doors will be locked and you'll be out of luck, especially if it's the day of the midterm or final, because then you get a zero.
  • Once I was in college a professor said: Does anyone mind if I start class at 3:35 instead of 3:30? These elevators are really slow and I want to have time for a cigarette before I teach for 90 minutes.
  • In high school they told us: Every class you miss drops you a full letter grade in college courses.
  • Once I was in college almost every professor said: You can miss three classes without a penalty, and a few more if you have a Doctor's note. Sorry to be a hardass, but you automatically fail if you miss more than ten days of class.
  • In high school they told us: If you do have papers, your professors just lecture and put the assignments on the syllabus. You're completely responsible for remembering the deadlines, they won't remind you. All your professors will do is lecture and the rest is up to you.
  • Once I was in college a professor said: Okay, so your next paper is in two weeks! I'll keep reminding you in the interim, but I just want to make sure you have enough time to do it! Let's run through the structure I want to see real quick, and if you have any questions, feel free to email me or come to my office hours!
  • In high school they told us: You have to use MLA formatting and if you make any mistakes in your citations, it'll be considered plagiarism. You'll be expelled and probably sued.
  • Once I was in college almost every professor said: Please do not use MLA, it is awful, we use either APA or Chicago here because we are not 14 years old.
  • In high school they told me: There is no excuse for an absence. NONE.
  • In college I called a professor and said: I'm really, really, really sorry but it's -18 before windchill and I have to walk two miles to get to class.
  • The professor said: You stay inside and stay safe. Here's what we're reading today. I'll quiz you next week and if you can get a 90% I'll mark you present. I know you live off-campus, do you have food?
  • In high school they told me: Your advisor is just for academia, not personal problems.
  • In college my advisor called me: Are you okay? I haven't seen you in class in two weeks and I know you have depression. I can drop off your work if you'd like. Please call me and tell me how you're doing even if you can't get to class.
  • In high school they told me: Don't argue. You think this is bad, wait til college.
  • In college all but one of my professors said: You wanna argue, do it in a civil manner. We didn't get here today without 5000 years of healthy debate.

Back when I was younger and more ignorant and misinformed than I am now, one of my exes literally made me feel guilty sometimes when he got a boner and I didn’t want to “take care of him”. He claimed that it caused him a lot of pain and he said that his doctor had actually said he couldn’t leave himself in that state or else he could damage himself…. So made me feel like I HAD to give him relief even when I really did not desire to. And that sucked.

Wait… it DOESN’T hurt them?

Boys get boners all the time for no reason. No, it doesn’t hurt them. If any boy tries to tell you otherwise, run away as fast as you can because he’s lying to you for the sake of his penis.

No penis is more important than you because you are a whole person and a penis is just a spongy flab o’ flesh. 

Hahaha deff not I get boners constantly.
Anything causes them

Favorite answer so far.


Dicks can seriously be ridiculous at times

Hell sometimes a brisk breeze can set them off

Reblogging this for all of the girls and guys that DO NOT KNOW THIS INFORMATION.  Because this is extremely important.



The term ‘blue balls’ isn’t actually a fucking thing. 

It was created by giant flopping douche canoes to con girls into rubbing their little dingadongs. 

I literally get 10 boners a day and never get blue balls. 

Next time someone tries to shame you into a handy, kick them in the balls and tell them “NOW YOU HAVE BLUE BALLS”

wait wait wait.

Did people actually think blue balls was real thing?

I thought it was just a running joke people used for dudes who were really horny. If a dude gets really horny and he doesnt have sex or masturbates nothing is going to happen to him. Eventually its just gonna go away.

cmon son.

here is the states (at least in florida) in sex ed we’re taught that it IS indeed a medical issue and that folks with penises HAVE to ejaculate after aroused otherwise they have crippling pain, and that ALL penised individuals HAVE to masturbate or they’ll have nocturnal emissions.  I was honestly really surprised to learn the contrary

You know what? It is possible to get an erection so hard it’s painful. You know what? You can wait for it to go down, or jerk off. No other person is **required** to do anything at any point. I shouldn’t have to say this, but this is where shitty sex education gets us: not just ignorance, but also rape culture.

Also, if you have an erection that lasts longer than four hours, the person you should be seeing is an emergency room doctor, not your s/o.
