(Or Patricia. I'm fine with either.)
I'm a teenage white cisgender lesbian brunette girl (she/her pronouns) living in the northeastern USA. This blog is a mix of pretty things I like (artsy, spiritual, nature etc), things relating to causes I'm into (social justice etc.), and things that inspire me. I own nothing, unless stated otherwise.
I am a Wiccan and Goddess-worshiper and consider myself to be spiritual, so just be mindful that you'll be seeing that stuff if you follow me. Blessed Be~
I am a feminist and social justice activist, and I try to act in the best solidarity I can to those who lack identity-privileges I have. Being that I have white privilege, I have stopped calling myself an intersectional feminist because of this: http://earthmoonlotus.tumblr.com/post/70840139693/if-youre-white-dont-call-yourself-an-intersectional
I advocate for the environment as well.

the past is a strange place
cops on bikes used to transport criminals like this
this guy worked as an alarm for waking people up
one wheel motorcycle
pin-boys who manually lined pins up
baby cage for families who wanted their kids to get enough sunlight
zoo-keeper showering a penguin
But who woke up the guy that woke everyone else up
In Purbalingga, central Java, numerous small workshops represent the first step in a global supply chain. Almost all workers are women, all of them scraping a living by measuring and cutting artificial hair to the requisite size for false eyelashes, and then knitting them onto a thin plastic thread. The job requires intense concentration, often leaving workers with sore eyes and backs. Their financial remuneration for such monotonous work is about $0.04 per pair, sometimes lower. By the time the product reaches Western consumers, the price they pay has often reached $10 a pair – a mark-up of 2,400%.
