"Sexual harassment isn’t an occupational hazard. It’s not a glitch in the complex matrix of modern life. It’s not something that just “happens.” It’s something men do. It’s a choice men make. It’s a problem men enable. It’s sometimes a crime men commit. And it is not in the power nor the responsibility of women to wage war on this crime.

It’s on us.”

State of Idaho plans to poison up to 4,000 Common Ravens. 
Justification: Ravens prey on the eggs of the imperiled Greater Sage-Grouse. Yet of 19 reasons for the grouse’s declining numbers, predation by other wildlife comes in at #12. Providing protected areas and requiring sustainable land management are the most important ways to conserve the grouse, not killing avian predators.

killing one species to ‘protect’ another is a horrible approach to anything. Have people not learned by now? And how many other animals would this inevitably poison? Ones that would also not only ingest the poison, but the poisoned bird carcasses.What is wrong with people.

Crows and Ravens hold a sacred position in the Mythos of North America, they should be honored and revered not murdered. 

that’s hella fucked up

Why does tumblr get all upset about “cultural appropriation” who the hell cares if a teenage girl uses elements of other cultures at Coachella.
People are too sensitive.
It’s just clothes. How is that offensive.
If Vanessa Hudgens wears a Native American head dress at…

The ironic part is it is just an ‘outfit’ to you and every other person who’s not apart of our cultures. To people who actually belong to these cultures it is wayyyyyy more then an ‘outfit.’ it’s not just something that is cute, pretty, unique or whatever. It has a real meaning. It’s proof that we are real and we held on to who and what we are, after generations and generations of white people, the government, and idiotic hipsters trying to wipe us off this earth, time after time.

And comparing it to some cookie cutter dress from some overpriced chain department store is just a complete insult but then again pretty much so is this whole little rant, op. Stop trying to defend people stealing our culture. -mod A

Navajo nation officially stands against the Redskins

In a 9-2 vote in favor of the legislation last Thursday, the Navajo Native Council passed legislation officially opposing the continued use of Washington’s football team name, the “Washington Redskins.” 

UN human rights expert on indigenous people’s rights James Anaya concurred with the vote, saying that the name is a “hurtful reminder” of the indigenous people’s history and genocide by America’s colonizers: “[T]he term for many is inextricably linked to a history of suffering and dispossession.”
