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.

let’s just get this clear.
until darren wilson is apprehended & locked away, DO NOT GIVE UP.
until the brown family finds the help they need & deserve, DO NOT GIVE UP.
until police brutality is properly dealt with & dismantled, DO NOT GIVE UP.
until institutionalized racism within the police force is removed, DO NOT GIVE UP.
UNTIL JUSTICE IS SERVED, DO NOT GIVE UP.
the problem with stories like mike brown’s is that people tend to lose interest in fighting. but the moment you go quiet, that means they’ve won. DO NOT LET THEM WIN. DO NOT LET THEM CONTINUE TO WALK ALL OVER THE INNOCENT. DO NOT LET HISTORY CONTINUE TO REPEAT ITSELF.
DO NOT GIVE UP.

We’re constantly being asked to qualify black life in America. So when Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson identified Darren Wilson as the officer who killed 18-year-old Michael Brown last weekend, the logic he employed was all too familiar.
When a black person is killed under dubious circumstances, the conversation inevitably turns to what the victim did to precipitate – if not outright deserve – such an abrupt and violent demise.
