We all love you and your sister @khatunshafina !
And Happy Birthday to Shafina!!❤️
Growing up, I wasn't always surrounded by people who wanted me to mentally, emotionally, physically, spiritually grow. Truth be told, my dad was the only person who wanted me to do well in life. Everyone else was always pulling me down in horrible ways, mentally, emotionally, physically, through their words, through their physical actions. At the age of 21, I find myself trying to heal from all that childhood trauma which has had detrimental effects on me. It's a struggle and it is so painfully hard because even whilst I am working on myself, those same people who dragged me down continously throughout my entire life, are still trying to do that today. Nothing comes easy in life. There are obstacles, barriers and hurdles everywhere we walk. But I am sick and tired of being stationary. 4 months ago I stumbled across @gbfulham because of my sister and it is helping me and her to work on ourselves and deal with our childhood trauma. It's crazy because I find people who I have only known for 4 months, watering me, helping me, pushing me, genuinely caring about me, wanting to see me progress in life, something which truth be told, I didn't nor do I get at home to this day. We all have our own issues in life. We all have the ability and capability to choose how we react to these issues and in turn how we treat ourselves and those around us.
Let’s play a little game of 2 truths and a lie. It’s pretty simple, just comment below with the one you think is a lie.
1️⃣ I've been to every State except Maine and Alaska
2️⃣ I've met Bill Nye the Science Guy
3️⃣ I still have my tonsils

This was originally posted by @churchmilitantcom, but was flagged and removed. Why? Because respect for women constitutes “hate speech” apparently. I promised myself I would never get into political/social issues on this account again, but since radical feminism is such a disgrace to women and TRUE feminists, I think I am going to make an exception for this one. Let’s see how many radical feminists report this post!
I had a specialist appointment on Monday to see if Botox injections in my pelvis would help at all.
I already knew I had issues with my muscles being tense but I was never told how severe the issue actually is.
Turns out my pains are so fucked because my pelvic muscles are hyper active and ALWAYS tensed up as a sub conscious coping mechanism because of my rape.
I pretty much begged my gyno for a hysterectomy because we all thought it was my Adenomyosis putting me in this much pain - obviously it hasn’t helped and makes the situation worse but she told me getting a hysterectomy would not have solved my problem and I would still be in constant pain ... SO THANK GOD I WASNT ALLOWED TO GO AHEAD WITH IT.
I don’t know how to feel about the fact I can never fully move on from my rape even though it’s been 10 years... he has perminantly damaged me not only mentally but physically ruined my body and ruined my life.
The next step is to see a pelvic physio and continue with my psychology. I hope I can get to a point where I can work again because not working is killing me!
Check out the latest and powerful piece from @rachel.cargle Posted @withrepost • @rachel.cargle My newest piece for @harpersbazaarus is exploring how racist and patriarchal ideas are being recycled in the textbooks we read and those that children today continue to learn from.
I get the question very often from parents on how they can ensure their children begin to learn about race and justice in an intentionally different way than what they so passively took at face value. This piece is my reminder that the issue is not just how you address race in your but you’ve got to be an accomplice to changing the systematic racism that this country was built on and that still exists.
The full article includes resources for parents, teachers, and student on how to agitate this system.
Link to the full piece is in my bio. Tag your mom and teacher friends and learn together.
Give it a read, let me know what you think, continue to do the work.
This week the Unbound Project is highlighting young people changing the world for animals!
A senior at university, Yuri Suzuki founded @arc_students in 2017 to empower young people in
Japan to engage in animal rights activism. She believes that engaging young people in
animal activism in Japan is essential, because they are a demographic that is generally open
to new ideas and interested in different social issues. For Suzuki, harnessing the passion and
commitment of students is what will change the world for animals.
What does she say to young people who are looking to make a difference for animals? “I'm learning how important it is to work for the animals constantly. Even if each step is
small or even if I make mistakes, doing anything will lead to helping animals. I believe in
Fun fact @ everyone who has a period, did you know that hydrogen peroxide and cold water is a really good way to get blood out of your clothes? Yuh, soak whatever it is in a mixture of cold water and hydrogen peroxide as fast as possible, the quicker you do so, the more likely you'll be able to save an extra pair of undies!
Feminism and Sustainability Timeline🔎 ~ After completing the timeline we can see that a lot of feminism and sustainable movements are happening from 2000 to the present day, this may be due to the fashion industry being the 2nd largest polluting industry in the world and also feminists making there moves in the world to help create an equality within the genders.
