“Here’s the one thing I want to say, is that I grew up in Pakistan, and […]—look, Americans have this assumed sense of security, which is a huge privilege, it’s a luxury, and most of the people in the world do not have that. I know I didn’t have it. And there were bombs in Iraq today, and 42 people died. And I’m not saying this to make this [Boston’s] tragedy smaller, but when you read about a bomb happening in another part of the world…try to remember how it felt here.
You read about bombs all the time, like bombs in Syria, and it always just goes off of you, you think it’s like some other world—but that’s the world! People are living their lives there, and they love their kids, and they love food and have favorite ice cream flavors. So just remember how awful this [Boston bombing] is, and how even now you are so distant from it, and how it happens to people all over the world.”
I will message you all personally to show my thanks :) stay cool tumblr

I’m just frozen. Absences of women in history don’t “just happen,” they are made.

Jeanne Manford, the founder of PFLAG, died today in her home in California. She was 92. From The Advocate: “One of Manford’s sons, the late Morty Manford, was gay. He was beaten during a Gay Activists Alliance demonstration in April 1972, and police failed to intervene. She wrote a letter to the New York Post, published April 29, 1972, in which she stated, ‘I have a homosexual son, and I love him.’ Her letter sparked a groundswell of response, and less than two months later, she joined her son at the Christopher Street Liberation Day Parade. Her participation and the affirmations she received from others eventually led to the beginning of PFLAG.”
May she rest peacefully. We will never forget this kind, beautiful soul for all she did.
