It is said that no one truly knows a nation until one has been inside its jails. A nation should not be judged by how it treats its highest citizens, but its lowest ones. — Nelson Mandela (via maarnayeri)
I will teach my daughter not to wear her skin like a drunken apology. I will tell her ‘make a home out of your body, live in yourself, do not let people turn you into a regret, do not justify yourself. If you are a disaster it is not forever, if you are a disaster you are the most beautiful one I’ve ever seen. Do not deconstruct from the inside out, you belong here, you belong here, not because you are lovely, but because you are more than that.’ — Azra T. “Your hands are threads, your body is a canvas” (via imaan-daar)

On Dec 6, 1989 a man with a gun walked into the Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal. First he separated the male and female students. Then he explained he was “fighting feminism” and shot the nine women in the classroom before moving through the school. In less than 20 minutes he’d killed 14 women and injured 10 more and 4 men before he killed himself. This is what sociologists Michael Kimmel and Rachel Kalish call “aggrieved entitlement.” It’s violent misogyny.
