The only way life comes into this world is through the female body. That is as close to the Gods as you can get.

(One of the most empowering things I’ve ever been told. I’ll never forget it.)
The greatest prison that people live in is the fear of what other people think.
— David Icke (via muslimnproud)
Try not to confuse “attachment” with “love.” Attachment is about fear and dependency, and has more to do with love of self than love of another. Love without attachment is the purest love because it isn’t about what others can give you because you’re empty. It is about what you give others because you’re already full.
— Yasmin Mogahed (via samsaranmusing)
Her blackness is fine, the blackness of her skin; the blackness of her mind.
Her beauty cannot be measured with standards of a colonized mind.

A white student may feel discomfort when it’s pointed out to him how he has benefited from structural racism, but to compare that discomfort to discrimination is a false equivalency. Hurt feelings hurt, but it is not oppression. But hurt feelings can be bad for business. And a lot of powerful people think colleges should act more like businesses. When they do, students act more like customers. And our likely customers might not be amicable to discussions about structural racism. If the customer is always right, then the majority share of customers is more right than the minority.
