Female voters in the US have been called “soccer moms” and “security moms”. In 2004, single women were “Sex and the City voters”. Now – because apparently women can’t ever just be “citizens” or “voters”, or more likely because conservatives prefer to call us names instead of delving too deep into women’s issues – we are “Beyoncé voters”. Bow down, bitches.
Most single ladies would generally be thrilled with a comparison to Queen Bey in any way, shape or form, but the cutesy nicknames for politically-engaged women need to stop. Surely pundits and the political media culture can deal with the collective electoral power of the majority voting bloc in this country in some better way than symbolically calling us “sweetheart”, complete with head pat.
I remember everything so vividly—
The way you made me laugh when
I only wanted to cry, the way you knew
How to hug me and make my problems
Disappear, the way my heart skipped at
The mention of your name, the way you
Could make my day with a simple “hello.”
I even remember the deafening silence
When I told you I could love you forever,
And the day my favorite hello became
A goodbye and a dial tone.
That second to last panel is chilling.
Protesters upset about the smearing of Mike Brown converged at CNN headquarters
Time to show some love and appreciate these heroes.
Firefighters are some badass mutha fuckas
You deserve the fucking world. You deserve all the happiness and love that you can get. You deserve better. You deserve a lifetime of happiness. You are worthy of life.
I HAVENT STOPPED LAUGHING AT THIS
I FUCKING LOVE THIS.
I kind of told my sixth grade teacher this in front of the class when she said “Ladies don’t do that.”
