Six Facts About Harriet Tubman
1. Harriet Tubman’s birth name was Aramita (“Minty”) Ross. She was born enslaved in Maryland sometime in 1820.
2. Tubman escaped slavery with her brother, Ben and Harry, on September 17, 1849.

3. Tubman is most famous for her role as a conductor on the Underground Railroad, in which she led escaped slaves to freedom. Estimates vary, but Tubman is said to have helped anywhere from dozens to hundreds of slaves reach freedom. She was once quoted as saying, “I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”
4. During the Civil War, Tubman worked for the Union army as a cook, nurse, and spy. She was also the first woman to lead an expedition in the war and guided the Combahee River Raid, which freed 700 slaves. Decades later, the raid would inspire a groundbreaking group of black feminists called the Combahee River Collective.
5. Tubman’s life has inspired countless works for art, including poems, comic books, and films.
6. This year marks that 100th anniversary of Harriet Tubman’s death. Maryland has a series of commemorative events. 

The last one really hits me. She had only been dead for 100 years. 100 years. Like, white folks are going on and on about how slavery has been over for hundreds and hundreds of years.
But here is an escaped slave who liberated countless others that only died ONE HUNDRED YEARS ago. This is not the ancient past. This is still living history.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This woman is royalty for Black Americans and you cannot tell me otherwise.

sex education blogs (which are probably followed by a lot of teenage girls who don’t get a decent sex education in school), reblogging things about how to “safely” be beaten up and strangled by your partner. how to act out a sexy rape scene. because abuse is so sexy. that’s what we need to teach young girls. great work, you fucking creeps.

Actually, I have an issue with statements like this. Sex education is important, but should also cover all spectrums of lust. Just because someone enjoys erotic asphyxiation just means that they enjoy it. It is ok to be curious about different things. I’ve known since I was 12. When I hit puberty that I enjoyed men more dominate, that I enjoyed spankings. I didn’t not have the name of dd/lg or BDSM, but I was curious. I was not like my peers. I was older mentally  and sought different things. 

So my message to others, it is okay to be curious. It is ok to ask questions. It is ok to seek answer, but please do it in a sane, consensual, and safe manner. Remember that there is a fine line between play and abuse. 

If there are questions, Daddy and myself would be willing to answer without censor or judgement. This is a safe place.

With Love,

Actually, you are disgusting for advocating abusive relationships to others, especially children and you need some therapy stat. OH MY FUCKING CHRIST there is nothing sane about partner violence, and there is no fine line between ‘consenting’ to abuse by males pull your head out of your ass its not a hat. 

For kids in the peanut gallery? There is nothing safe about strangulation, it is violent and dangerous. Asphyxiation is not a game, even if you enjoy it, its domestic violence. Also, your BDSM is modeled after slavery and racism. Kink is misogynistic and attempts to sexualize racism. Why is it always the white kinkshits proliferating this violently racist misogynistic idiocy? Oh that’s right they’re racist assholes. Y’all need to spend more time feeling bad about slavery, not fetishizing it.

'Daddy and myself' fuck all just get some help

real men are feminist

If more women make porn that is “female-friendly” (whatever that means), it won’t destroy the porn industry or make that industry one that isn’t a primarily sexist one that promotes the abuse and degradation of women. If we regulate the sex industry, it won’t change the fact that prostitution exists on a foundation of colonialism, capitalism, and patriarchy and is an industry that exists to benefit men and reinforce women’s roles as subordinate.

The divide isn’t between ‘sex negative’ and ‘sex positive’ feminists — it’s between liberal and radical feminism

Female friendly porn is an oxymoron.. anyone that claims otherwise is just a fucking moron

Okay but why is she naked and he fully clothed?

she below, he above, she is in a fragile pose, he is in a dominant one, her face is submissive/scared, his is calm and “powerful”.
I don’t think you can find a much better example of how men and women are pictured in media

This is it. The system of gender. Right here, conveniently collected and organized into one very obvious photograph. This is the shit we’re trying to abolish.
