Why should I apologize for the monster I’ve become? No one ever apologized for making me this way.(via kumori-hime)
Mercy, huh. Reeva Steenkamp is dead. At the hands of her abuser. Did he show mercy when he shot her to death? Yet we are expected to show mercy in terms of his sentencing. Ok. I get it.
You know what “message” this sentencing could have sent to “the community?” That women’s lives matter.
Instead, what we’ve learned (and what we’ve learned time and time again) is that men’s lives matter, men’s careers matter, men’s reputations matter, men’s money and power matters… And that women’s lives are irrelevant.
Reeva Steenkamp is gone, and Pistorius will continue on. What’s five years, after all? Five years that he likely won’t even serve in full?
The message is that men can get away with murder. Particularly when the victim is a woman.Oscar Pistorius sentenced to five years for murdering Reeva Steenkamp (via feministcurrent)

shoutout to people working weekends and overnights and overtime, people working in hospitality and retail and food service, who are sacrificing time with their loved ones, so fuckers with weekday desk jobs get to live comfortably with the amenities we provide while simultaneously shitting all over us for not getting “real jobs”
