Aeonium canariense (by flora-file)

Both photos are the same species, and the photos taken at the  same time on the same day. The top plant is growing in full sun, and the bottom in partial shade. In fact the bottom plant was grown from branches of the top plant, and after months of summer heat it has now grown larger than the original plant. The one in partial shade has been actively growing while the one in full sun has been clenched and dormant all summer. Just goes to show that not all succulents want full sun

“…the older I get, the more I see how women are described as having gone mad, when what they’ve actually become is knowledgeable and powerful and fucking furious.”


Since my last post about the problems with the fetishization of brazilian women and what happens when men with that mentality come to Brazil (sexual tourism) suddenly started getting notes, I’d like to expose what happens when brazilian women leave the country.

This is a project by exange students from Brazil in the University of Coimbra, in Portugal, the signs contain phrases that were actually said to them


  • " ‘But you’re Brazilian’ - when I rejected a sexual advance"
  • " ‘So, girl… are you a call girl?’ - said by a teacher who loves to imitate brazilian accents (and say shit) "
  • " ‘The Brazilian girls need to take care of their behaviour, otherwise they’ll reinforce the stereotype of prostitutes, whores or easy’ - ‘advice’ from a teacher"
  • "Do you know what a Brazilian say when she takes a picture? Penis."
  • " ‘Even with all the xenophobia, Coimbra is way better than São Paulo, isn’t it?’ - Director of FLUC, my answer: No."

I’m sure you’ve all heard about racism towards latin@s in other countries, it’s important to notice, however, the particularities when it comes to latina women, the intersection of racism and misogyny.The fact is, women of color are constantly being said to be promiscuous, that is, sexually avaliable to the white man, and turned into a fetish, an exotic object - the ‘easy’ brazilian with a big ass who loves to samba, for instance, the naive schoolgirl japanese girl, etc.

Again, I find it important to talk about all of this on tumblr so we don’t get lost in some shallow, whitecentric and eurocentric feminism.

reblogging because the message is important and necessary but please to not support the fckh8 organization because even tho they claim to be all about “equality for all” that apparently doesnt apply to asexuals and pansexuals 

reblogging for the above commentary 

but also, as someone pointed out on my facebook, how come only $5 of the profits made from these t-shirt are going to charity? that doesn’t add up, especially when there have been teespring campaigns which donated all of the proceeds to Ferguson organizations. 

it seems to me fckh8 is trying to profit off the appearance of being more actively anti-racist then they actually are and using Ferguson kids in the process.  

That ^ is exactly what they’re doing.

Also they’re not actually a non-profit organization or charity. They’re a for-profit T-shirt company that scored an F by the BBB. They are absolutely trying to profit off of those children.

Just leaving this link here too. Fuck FCKH8.

reblogging for additional commentary!

reblogging because Fuck FCKH8 because i thought they were so cool!
