UNHCR is reporting that number of Syrian refugees passed 3 million people, amid reports of horrifying conditions inside the country.

Almost half of all Syrians have been forced to leave home and flee for their lives. One in every eight has fled across the border, fully a million people more than a year ago. A further 6.5 million are displaced within Syria. Over half of those uprooted are children.

In the case of rape, pro lifers will say: “Well, why would you punish the child for the father’s crime?” They forget that they are instead punishing the pregnant person for being raped.

"Never did like that much," is a baller and superb way to express your irritation with the way the patriarchy refuses to acknowledge how badass you are.

Before World War I, she shot a cigarette out of the mouth of the Kaiser of Germany at his request.
After the war started she sent him a letter asking for another chance, as she was afraid her aim might’ve been a little off.

Since 1980, 3000 native Canadian women have been murdered/gone missing. Indigenous women are five times more likely than other women to die as a result of violence. Sixty percent of known perpetrators are white men.

Justice for all Indigenous Women! by Jessica Sabogal | Montréal

1 in 3 Native American women are raped within their lifetime, and are at extreme risk of violence from non-native (white) men. x x x

Despite push from the UN for a national inquiry, Canada continues to largely ignore the violence against Native Women. x

“There’s no point to a guy yelling, “Hey sexy baby” at me out of the passenger window of a car as it speeds past. Even if I was into creepy misogynists and wanted to give him my number, I couldn’t. The car didn’t even slow down. But that’s okay, because he wasn’t actually hitting on me. The point wasn’t to proposition me or chat me up. The only point was to remind me, and all women, that our bodies are his to stare at, assess, comment on, even touch. “Hey sexy baby” is the first part of a sentence that finishes, “this is your daily message from the patriarchy, reminding you that your body is public property”.”

“Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.”

The idea of being your past is unbearable as I only ever thought of myself as your future.

“The atoms that make up your body were once forged inside stars, and the causes of even the smallest event are virtually infinite and connected with the whole in incomprehensible ways.”

—   Eckhart Tolle (via liberatingreality)

One day I woke up next to you and you were different. As close as we were physically, you were a million miles away.

It was like you had already made up your mind you were leaving, but you’d forgotten to tell me you’d changed.
