Gaza. September 1, 14.

No time to recover..

I was at the post office a couple of weeks ago to pick up a package. I went over to this Asian guy at the till and he looked at my receipt with my name on it and said really loud “Samiiiiirrrrraaa”. And I smiled so wide because he pronounced my name properly like the way it was suppose to sound. And I think because all the lessons I took at college were filled with predominately white people and most people call me “Sameera” and I just take it. I had sort of forgot the sound of my own name. So I just got so happy.

Shout out to you post office guy, you made my day.

“Every time someone says we don’t need feminism anymore, things like this come to mind. Due to insufficient dowry this young girl’s husband lacerated her face with a razor blade.” (Gwalior - India) - ph. Adrian Fisk

“The jihadists don’t like fighting women, because if they’re killed by a female, they think they won’t go to heaven,” said one female Kurdish PKK fighter as a response to addressing why they fight against ISIS in Iraq. 

Seriously, how fucking brave do you have to be to stand against ISIS? Respect.

Edging closer
You swing my way
I’ve got no chance
And nothing to say
But stay
Here for a while
Baby blue

can anyone tell me what this is about? [abastract dolmaenthusiast qasaweh sikoot]

"Black thugs in Cairo: Most of the crimes against activists and reporters are from South Sudan" - Sisi and his media outlets are trying to vilify people from Sudan for crimes “against journalists”, when in fact Sisi’s regime is known for its violent crimes against free journalism and against anti-regime activists. Anti-blackness is global - governments (and state media) continue to criminalize black peoples so that their juntas are able to conceal their own crimes and atrocities. 

To summarize, the article is criminalizing refugees (which Egyptian media is known for). The first line of the article says that African refugees are criminal gangs who bring violence to Ain Sham, Nasr City, and to all the residents. The bitch author said that these “criminal refugees” need to be dealt with seriously in order to “preserve the reputation of Egypt’s international place, adversely affect tourism, and the country’s national income”. They admitted that most of these “thugs” are in their teens, then they characterized how these “thugs” look like: distinctive lengthwise clothing and gold and silver chains around their necks… Unbelievable.

Fucking ridiculous and nauseating.
