let’s take some more things black people have been saying and pretend they’re slurs after white people get their hands on them and misuse and misunderstand like they did with fuckboy..

"Finna" is a slur against Finnish people spread the word.

today at therapy my therapist gave me a list of legitimate emotional rights and i think it would be helpful to share with everyone, especially people with bpd

  1. You have the right to need things from others.
  2. You have the right to put yourself first sometimes.
  3. You have the right to be the final judge of your beliefs and accept them as legitimate.
  4. You have the right to a right to feel and express your emotions or your pain.
  5. You have the right to your opinions and convictions.
  6. You have the right to your experience-even if it’s different from that of other people.
  7. You have the right to protest any treatment or criticism that feels bad to you.
  8. You have the right to negotiate for change.
  9. You have the right to ask for help, emotional support, or anything else you need.
  10. You have the right to say no; saying no doesn’t make you bad or selfish.

  12. You have the right not to take responsibility for someone else’s problem.
  13. You have the right to choose not to respond to a situation.

Anger towards privileged groups is a result of years of oppression and hatred.

Anger towards minorities is supported by years of oppression and hatred.

That’s why hatred towards privileged groups is not the same as hatred towards minorities

One group, the Hindu American Foundation, has launched a “Take Back Yoga” campaign to address what they see as a fundamental disconnect between yoga and Hinduism.

Sheetal Shah, senior director at the foundation, says the group started the campaign when it noticed that while “Vedic,” “tantric” and many other words appeared regularly in yoga magazines, the word “Hindu” was never mentioned.

So, the foundation called up one of the country’s most popular magazines to ask why.

"They said the word ‘Hinduism’ has a lot of baggage," Shah says. "And we were like, ‘Excuse me?’ "

Shah says she understands why some people have a problem with linking yoga and Hinduism. Many American practitioners associate the practice with something pure and serene, she says. But when they think of Hinduism, she says, they think of “multiple gods, with multiple heads and multiple arms. Colorful [and] ritualistic.

It may be difficult for people to see how these things fit together, Shah says.

With the Take Back Yoga campaign, the Hindu American Foundation is hoping for broader acknowledgment that yoga has Hindu philosophical roots — while also emphasizing that it is universal and appropriate for everyone.

"What we’re trying to say is that the holistic practice of yoga goes beyond just a couple of asanas [postures] on a mat. It is a lifestyle, and it’s a philosophy," Shah says.

"How do you lead your life in terms of truthfulness? And nonviolence? And purity? The lifestyle aspect of yoga," Shah says, "has been lost."
