    I’ve seen some posts making this guilt trip of how the people who like to dress up as a sugar skull or the Catrina for Halloween or whatever is racist and cultural appropriation.

    Nah, it’s completely fine, as long as you are not totally ignorant about it or disrespectful, we Mexicans also celebrate Halloween, we break the piñata (which origin is Chinese) And celebrate thanksgiving.

    So it’s kinda hypocrite to say it’s cultural appropriation (which is not either way) cultures are beautiful and should/could be shared, there are indeed some aspects that can be racist and or appropriating, however dressing up as a sugar skull on Halloween is not in any way offensive.

    It’s not like the sugar skull represents us, represents the deceased, and actually it’s just a joyful way to represent them. And the Catrina is just a social critic which became an icon later on for the day of the dead and Mexico. 

    Be open minded, don’t even hate, and share this rich culture we have with the rest of humanity, chill.

    BLESS! Yes, please please feel invited to dress up and celebrate this Halloween or Day of the Dead! There’s much more behind this wonderful holiday and I’ll make some posts here for you guys who are interested, but this is perfect as an introduction <3

    I wish more cartoons taught young girls that if a man harasses you or annoys you or whatever you should blow him up with a bazooka and feel no remorse :)))

    But the wage gap varies significantly by race, according to an analysis from the research organization AAUW. While white women experienced that 78 percent figure, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander women made 65 percent of what white men made in 2013, African-American women made 64 percent, American Indian and Alaska Native women made 59 percent, and Hispanic women made just 54 percent. Asian-American women are the only group doing better than white women, making 90 percent of white men’s earnings.

    Woah, staggering.

    the only domestic instinct my parents have managed to pass on to me is the tendency to hoard multiple plastic bags in another plastic bag despite the fact that I will probably never need this many plastic bags in my adult life

    Omg. This is the most accurate post ever.

    OK Highway Patrol Captain George Brown says the best “tip” for women to not get raped by a cop is to “follow the law in the first place so you don’t get pulled over.”

    Pro tip: if you’re signaled to pull over (whether you’re male or female) and you’re in a place that has no witnesses, turn your hazard lights on to acknowledge the officer’s siren, and drive to the nearest gas station or populated area. This is accepted protocol by every agency. You are not obligated pull over until you can do so safely. This includes personal safety. Understand your rights, brothers and sisters. There are disgusting examples of authority in this world.

    ALSO! Call 911/non-emergency sheriff’s line before you open your door or window. A cop has to immediately call in when he’s pulling a vehicle over so the dispatcher can tell you if it’s legit.
