We owe it to him to read his story.
Dont let Fox or other news stations tell you. Don’t read the article on yahoo. Actually read about his light, his struggle and his story.
They’ll have you believing Mandela spoke and fought passively for human rights and I’m trying to tell you, this aint that. Dont let them MLK him.
Don’t drink the kool-aid, Mandela was amazing!
These are awesome! I hope you post the rest of them :)

Permission to be a bad ass. Nod.
He looks back at the guy like, “SEE THAT? SHE SAID YES. YOU’RE SO FUCKED.”
Like, guys. Sparta was so kick ASS sometimes when it came to women. Spartan women were given these small knives so that if their husbands came home and tried to hit them or assault them, they had a weapon within reach. That weapon was for CUTTING THEIR HUSBANDS’ FUCKING FACES so that when he went out in public everyone would know he was an asshole, abusing jerkface and they would publicly shame him.
I DID NOT KNOW THAT THAT IS GREAT
LET’S JUST TALK ABOUT SPARTAN WOMEN FOR A SECOND.
In Sparta, women could own land and were considered citizens. THAT IS A HUGE BIG FUCKING DEAL. Why? Because that was RARE AS FUCK and there are lots of places TODAY where women don’t even get that much.
Divorce was totally fine, and a woman could expect to keep her own wealth and get custody of the kids because paternal lineage wasn’t very important. And it didn’t make her a pariah! She could totally remarry, no big deal at all.
Spartan women participated in some fuckin’ badass sporting events, too. And because they were expected to be as physically fit as the Spartan menfolk (who all had to serve compulsory military duties, btw, and couldn’t marry until they finished them at thirty) they didn’t have time for lots of swishy dresses. So they wore notoriously short skirts. According to some accounts, their thighs were visible at all times. HOLY SHIT.
Also, In Sparta men only got their names on their graves if they died in battle. And women? Women only got their names on their graves if they died in childbirth. THE SPARTANS COMPARED CHILDBIRTH TO FUCKING BATTLE AND IT WAS VIEWED AS A GODDAMN BADASS AND HONORABLE WAY TO GO OUT.
FUCKING SPARTAN WOMEN. THIS DUDE HAD FUCKIN’ BETTER MAKE SURE SHE’S COOL WITH WHATEVER HE’S DOING, IF HE KNOWS WHAT’S FUCKIN’ GOOD FOR HIM.
^^ I throughly enjoyed the history lesson dashed with the colorful adjectives.
Before we get TOO excited about Sparta let’s just remember that this only applied to Spartan citizens. Spartan society was entirely carried by an underclass of slaves called the Helots. The Helots enjoyed no legal rights and in fact had to pay taxes via crops that they cultivated.
There were many more Helots than Spartans, but they seldom revolted, probably because they had no real power. And given Spartan military might, they would have been slaughtered. And the few times they did revolt, yep, slaughtered.
It was legal to steal from them. Annually, during Crypteia (a Spartan manly man ritual of becoming a man), you could legally kill them, which many Spartan boys did to survive as they were cast from society during Crypteia. It was only illegal to be caught in the act of stealing or murder, and not because it was a crime to kill or steal, but because it was considered degrading to the Spartan man.
So while Sparta was great to some women, it was borne on the backs of countless others who had no rights.
In sum, this is exactly what intersectional feminists complain about as the whitewashing of history, and what Marxists complain about as ignoring historical class conflict.
Some of the most clueless motherfuckers around.
White person could spit in they face and call them a nigger and they would sit there like
“No they aren’t racist! They’re just having a really bad day!”
