Birthday wishes are in order for Ruby Bridges. She was the first African American child to attend an all white school in the South. Parents of the other students pulled their kids from school and teachers refused to instruct while Ruby attended. At the age of six, Bridges bravely faced mobs of angry protesters who shouted insults and threatened her life. Her example demonstrates that anyone, of any age is capable of showing great courage and inspiring great change.
Thanks to Ms. Magazine for the info

I wished for you…

stephaniexmariex:

I was walking outside
And came across
A dandelion
And wished for you

I was washing my face
And came across
A stray eyelash
And wished for you

It was my birthday
And I blew out
The candles
And wished for you

I was in my room
Hysterically crying
And realized
I meant nothing to you.

do you know how scary it is to acknowledge how strong your feelings are for someone and your brain is like “maybe you love them” and you’re like SHUT THE FUCK UP BRAIN YOU DONT KNOW SHIT

calling celebrity women sluts for having their sexual and personal lives invaded is not cool. they’re entitled to do whatever they please in their own time, and if that includes taking sexual pictures to send to their significant others, than that’s their choice.

You can’t go to the pharmacy without someone saying, “Hey, you’re the girl from Harry Potter!” and I’m like “Yeah! Just buying tampons, see you in a bit!”
