Other Side Of The Game - Erykah Badu
— Erykah Badu (via saraaaras)
When dating and falling in love when they have the mindset of finding “someone who completes” them.
Nah, who told you that you were incomplete? Imperfect in a way that you needed someone else to fill in some supposed gap that makes up you? Like you need someone else to make you feel like the universe needs something more than you?
Find someone that compliments you. Someone who can let you stand in the spotlight and not be your shadow. Someone who has something of their own and can be content to cheer you on.
Trash anything you read or turn your ears away from anything you hear that says you need another person to complete you. Love is awesome. Remember that you are worthy of finding yourself whole. And if you don’t feel that you are—-focus on doing so—for you.
EVER has a right to touch you if you don’t want to be touched.
Not your husband. Not your fiance. Not your boyfriend. Not your partner. Not your friends. Not even your own family.
You are a person and your body is your own. And it’s a privilege if you allow someone to touch it.
A god damn privilege that can be snatched up and you don’t owe anyone a reason but that it’s your body and only YOUR body.
#DecolonizeHistory is about interrupting space, addressing colonial roots and undoing processes of white supremacy.
Historical narratives are most often presented without the context of colonization, slavery and imperialism despite the huge role they play on all aspects of life.
Hoping this project raises awareness about injustices towards Trayvon Martin, subject to a system of racism that never served to protect his life, Omar Khadr, a Canadian citizen arrested and detained in Guantanamo Bay when he was only 15 years old, and Assata Shakur & Huey Newton, labelled “terrorists” for actively resisting systemic racism on stolen land.
This is the beginning, there are so many more narratives to be shared and #DecolonizeHistory aims to illuminate the role that processes of colonialism continue to play out in society.
Gurung Honey Hunters by Andrew Newey
Photographer Andrew Newey documented the ancient tradition of honey hunting in central Nepal. Perched precariously on rope ladders, honey hunters risk their lives to gather the honey, using only long sticks known as tangos to knock the honeycomb off the Himalayan cliffside and into baskets, which are then lowered to the ground.
