@frenz.lo my dear friend was 'that guy' on our high school model congress trip, when he only packed one suit. FOR THE ENTIRE FOUR DAYS.

are you talking about choosing to the bring the murder 2 charge? i don't know these legal intricacies like you do, but isn't that less the prosecutor's fault than the fact that we live in a society where a murder 2 conviction (or manslaughter) for a black teenage victim doesn't seem possible?
sincere question, by the way.
It's awful that Texan women had to go through all this bullshit to kill this bill, but I can't think of a better symbolic victory when Leticia van de putte called out all those men for ignoring her motion, and a split second after the gallery shouting down all that procedural fuckery.
Like I would've been happy if senator Watson had been able to run down the clock himself. But it was perfect that a woman and the group behind her dealt the final blow.
And I haven't gotten to how heroic Wendy Davis was last night.

@YoungLeafedJune in the context of the article, women have been calling out beyonce for so-called anti-feminist stuff that she does and ignoring the other, empowering actions and qualities. also, the article points out the "anti-feminist" stuff that beyonce does may take another perspective when you consider her race as well. i don't think this particular critique takes the "shut up for people won't think we're cool" stance.
yesss emma, keep doing these female-drive r&b posts
