Be The Change

"Be the change you wish to see in the world" -Ghandi. I am sick and tired of sitting back and watching as this world continues to spiral out of control. I want to make a change. I want to make a difference. I want to make that difference now.

"

You know, I’m amazed how we don’t judge the choices that rich white men make. Look at how we don’t prosecute bank executives who illegally foreclosed on middle class families and rigged international lending rates. Look at how we defend multi-million dollar pay packages for CEOs running their companies into the ground and yet scrutinize even a 10-cent increase in the minimum wage. Look at how we make excuses for male politician after politician who drop their pants and then make comebacks (pun intended!).

But poor women, especially poor women of color, immigrant women—we judge every choice they make. We judge them if they have children. We judge them if they get abortions and don’t have children. We don’t care that General Electric doesn’t pay any taxes—but we care that poor women of color collect public assistance AND have too nice of a cell phone.

I was JUST thinking along these lines yesterday because of a debate on my dash regarding paying into welfare vs paying into war.

My thing is, have sex whenever you decide to want to have sex. You want to have sex on the first night, go ahead. You want to have sex after 20 dates, go ahead. You want to never have sex, go ahead. People think that someone’s sexual choices actually coincide with their personality. If all you can think of someone’s worth is whether they want to have sex or not, then the problem is probably you.

"Rape is one of the most terrible crimes on earth. And it happens every few minutes. The problem with groups who deal with rape is that they try to educate women about how to defend themselves. What really needs to be done is teaching men not to rape. Go to the source and start there."
Kurt Cobain talking in November 1991 about the background behind the song ‘Polly’ (via batsypayne)

"There are people who will feel threatened by the idea of you liking yourself. This is because if you like yourself, you’ll believe that you deserve to be treated well, so you won’t tolerate it when they treat you badly, and they either don’t know how to treat you properly or don’t want to treat you properly, so they know you liking yourself means that you will invariably leave them or stand up to them. When somebody wants you to be insecure or to doubt yourself, it’s because they want to use those insecurities and doubts against you. To hell with those people. They don’t care about you. They just want to be able to treat you like dirt, and they’re scared you won’t let them, so go ahead, scare them; love yourself."

"When we look back to the Holocaust and WWII people would say, ‘We didn’t do anything because we didn’t know.’ I’ve now documented three genocides: Rwanda, Bosnia, Darfur. The excuse the world community has to say we didn’t know no longer exists."
Ron Haviv, in an interview with NBC’s Ann Curry for her series “Depth of Field.” Ron Haviv, a co-founder of VII photo agency, has documented everything from wars to natural disasters over the last three decades. An exhibition of his work, “Testimony,” is on display at Anastasia Photo in New York City until February 15. (via reportagebygettyimages)
