Young men need to be socialized in such a way that rape is as unthinkable to them as cannibalism.

—    

Mary Pipher, Reviving Ophelia (via ohdreaming)

Important addendum: to also know what rape is. Too many of them understand “rape is bad” but see it in a disconnected, “stranger jumping from bushes” sort of way instead of the “close friend who oversteps boundaries because of entitlement issues”. That last bit? That, and everything that goes into it, needs to be defined as being unthinkable.

Steven Onoja of Ostentation and Style.

Always immaculately dressed with a distinct dapper-ness and stylish sartorial flair, Nigerian-American menswear blogger Steven Onoja is undoubtedly one of the leading faces in the world of personal style and online men’s fashion blogs.

Whether suited up or styled down, Steven may appear to embrace a more conventional and classic look but he always manages to go beyond the confines of traditional upscale men’s fashion by adding personal touches that make his style both unique and distinct. What we love best is that each ‘shoot he undertakes tells a story that brings the dynamics of his aesthetics to life.

The Angry Black Woman is a racist trope used to deny black women their humanity. Black women aren’t allowed to be complicated — they’re just angry. Black women aren’t allowed to be upset or vulnerable — they’re just angry. Black women are not allowed justifiable reactions to the myriad of bullshit — racist, sexist and otherwise — that they face. Oh, you know those black ladies are just so angry all the time.
