I’m just a 14 year old white girl I’m not a terrorist
hope they got Starbucks in Maximum Security
It’s mindboggling that there are 14 year olds on tumblr who think, speak and have skills on par with adults.
We read about 14 year olds sitting university exams or making scientific discoveries no matter what country or class they live in.
And then you get 14 year olds like this.

If Wal-Mart Paid Its Employees a Living Wage, How Much Would Prices Go Up? (2:02)
This video crunches the numbers on how much Walmart, the single biggest beneficiary of the food stamp economy, might have to raise prices across the board to help a typical worker earn a living wage.
I’ve already blogged this before but it basically sums up my entire philosophy much better than I ever could so here we are.
What does radical feminism have to say about asexual women? I’ve only seen us mentioned in a radical feminist work maybe once and it was to say that the writer had nothing to say.
I don’t know, and to be honest I don’t want to find out. I’ve seen only one formal paper that touched on what asexuality means for feminism, but unfortunately I can’t find it right now. I remember not liking it very much.
I’m wary of people who “have opinions” about asexuality and other marginalized identities they’re not part of, besides respect and acceptance. Why do they feel the need to comment on it? We don’t need their input. Their opinions about us have no weight because they don’t know what it’s like to be us. The only feminists whose opinions about asexuality I’ll take seriously are asexual-spectrum feminists, and we have plenty of those in asexual communities.
What I’m most concerned about is non-asexual-spectrum people trying to use asexuality as a mere prop to further their own political agendas: mentioning us when it suits their purposes, but ignoring our existence and our problems the rest of the time. My sexual orientation is not a political statement, and my life is not an argument for other people to debate.
I worry that, as asexuality becomes more widely known, both social conservatives and social progressives will try to use it as a rhetorical device to further their own ends, and that they will begin judging asexual people based on whether we fit into their sexual ideology. I’m not a “good asexual” if my life is a convenient example for someone else to use, nor am I a “bad asexual” if my existence contradicts their ideas.
(And I just know that non-heteroromantic or non-cisgender asexuals will be thrown under the bus if people start doing this…)
Oh look my state is among all but one of these categories.
