My Wishes for Every Black Girl
may your edges be full and bountiful
may your hair always stay moisturized
may your brow game strengthen with every coming day
may your knees and elbows never be ashy
You may not see it today or tomorrow, but you will look back in a few years and be absolutely perplexed and awed by how every little thing added up and brought you somewhere wonderful - or where you always wanted to be. You will be grateful that things didn’t work out the way you once wanted them to.t-sukix.tumblr.com/ (via w-ildfires)

They maintain a list of online-chat-based resources for people in other countries as well.
Gonna keep a tally of messages I get from a) white feminists completely proving my point and b) people who think this comic proves feminism is worthless because I criticized one part of it. (Even despite me writing these words underneath the comic.) Then I’ll add them all up, see which column has more, and then drink myself to sleep either way.
Haha… this is why we can’t have nice things.
