So true. I hate when people say those who can't do teach. On the contrary, teachers are by nature creative and talented, they just prefer to share their love of learning and varied interests.

Racing Organizations, Running Racing, Kathrin Switzer, Bostonmarathon, Male Runners, Nyc Marathons, Protection Shield, Boston Marathons, Boyfriends
In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston marathon. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” However, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire marathon.The photographs taken of the incident made world headlines, and Kathrine later won the NYC marathon with a time of 3:07:29. [Wiki]
Women were not permitted to run the Boston Marathon until 1972. “In 1967, Kathrine Switzer registered for the BostonMarathon as “K.V. Switzer” became the 1st woman to run with a race number (in 1966 Roberta Gibb hid in a bush at the start line and ran the race unregistered). 2 miles in, Marathon officials attempted to remove her from the race, however her running mates pushed the official off her she finished the race in 4h20. Women were finally allowed to participate in 1972.“

NO child should ever go hungry with all the money our government wastes on stupid, petty shit!! If the president (any president) can spend millions on a vacation but we can't give that money to feed children, then America is not living up to who we should be!! People set up go fund me accounts for people all the time so why can't those same people give money to a homeless shelter or a food bank instead? Whats happening to America and whats that mean for the world that we are leaving our kids?

I have always loved this because when it comes down to it both women and men have to conform to societal expectations. This is again not a singular person I feel is a feminist, but speaks to what feminism is all about: equal rights/expectations/acceptance for all.

From Occupy Wallstreet
"If only the war on poverty was a real war, then we would actually be putting money into it." —a sign held by Cornel West at the "Occupy Wall Street" protest So true...although I do not fully understand Occupy, I agree with this wholeheartedly

BEST QUOTE EVER! Cornel West is an icon.
"Generally, by the time you are real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes don't see as well and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. "But these things don't matter at all, because once you are real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand" ~ The Velveteen Rabbit
According to republicans it's the elderly and the poor that are destroying America. I suggest that maybe it's mega-rich corporations that have bought the heart and soul of the Republican Party.

he general stigma and opinion of the majority of the American people is that the Republican party and their policies favor the wealthy. If so many people believe that a particular political party has only a small elite in their best interest, why do so many still continue to vote for them? A question needs to be asked, why do working class, low and middle income families, continue to support a party that gives little to no benefit to them? Here's the rest of it...
Just to preempt the usual rebuttals: studies that prove raising it doesn’t affect job growth! http://www.cepr.net/index.php/publications/reports/wage-employment-impact-of-min-wage-three-cities http://www.irle.berkeley.edu/cwed/wp/economicimpacts_07.pdf http://www.ibrc.indiana.edu/ibr/2008/fall/article1.html http://www.fiscalpolicy.org/FPISmallBusinessMinWage.pdf Raising the minimum wage won’t single handedly decrease poverty but it will help individuals and families afford basic necessities
♥ Just Another Nerdy Girl: Photo
if you raise the minimum wage, THE PRICE OF MILK GOES UP. Thats not going to help. Food inflation is rising a lot quicker than minimum wage. Not fair.
It is NOT okay for working Americans to live in poverty. Tell Congress to raise the minimum wage now!

No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. - Nelson Mandela #quotes #equality #progressive

Image of 11x17" Buy a Dictionary Poster ("That's So Retarded") I love the graphic design and the brilliant thought behind it.
Buy a dictionary. Stop the use of the "R" word.... People use the word so interchangeably, yet that isn't what the word is for. People who may have mental disabilities don't appreciate it when they're called this word or when the word is used in general. So choose new words to get your point across.
Image of 11x17 Buy a Dictionary Poster -- if i wasn't worried about the repercussions, i would hang this in my classroom, where i hear this sad phrase all the time.
Buy a dictionary! I know people think saying "retarded" is no big deal, but the kids who are so hurt by that word do think it's a big deal!
Image of 8x10" Buy a Dictionary Poster ("That's So Retarded") Ugh. I hate people who say "retarded." Makes you sound stupid and inconsiderate.
