THE MESO-AMERICAN CULTURES STILL EXIST.
THE MAYA ARE STILL LIVING.
THE AZTECA ARE STILL LIVING.
MOST ARE STILL ALIVE TODAY AND ARE FIGHTING TO RETAIN THEIR RIGHTS TO THEIR SACRED SITES, RITUALS, AND PRACTICES BECAUSE PEOPLE THINK THEIR CULTURES ARE DEAD WHEN THEY’RE NOT.
THEY ARE STILL LIVING.
i once chipped a tooth while making out when i was 15
I once bit a guy’s dick because I told him not to force his dick down my throat and he did
I once dated and kissed a girl to hide my sexuality

Ants are really strong
Where is this post going?
You may bury my body
down by the highway side
So my old evil spirit
Can catch a Greyhound bus and ride

A girl I’m friends with on Facebook posted this status and I love it so much.
Men make $1.22 for every woman’s $1.
It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …
this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1
A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes
A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes
A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes
A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes
A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes
That’s some bullshit right there.
Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.
Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.
