Tracey's are the nicest people in the world.... some my think there kinda weird or a tad nuts but when you see past it you'll see Tracey's are the best people to have around.
they sing, they dance and they love.
Tracey's are also very talkative, funny, cuddly, lovable and just all round fantastic people. -Urban Dictionary
Yup, I think that sums it all up, don't you?
I am a Tracey, and I'm an art student at Grand Valley. Basically this will contain whatever I want it to. So far it seems to be a mix of art, feminism, my life, random stuff, and my fandoms.
From A Mighty Girl:
“In celebration of today’s Boston Marathon, we’re sharing the dramatic story of the first woman to officially run the historic race. Kathrine Switzer’s experience is a revealing illustration of the barriers that trailblazing women athletes had to overcome and of how far girls and women in sports have come in only a few decades.
In 1967, Switzer was a 20-year-old college student at Syracuse University when she registered for the race using her initials, K.V. Switzer. Not realizing that she was a woman, who were barred from participating in the Boston Marathon for over 70 years, race officials issued her an entry number.
During the race, marathon official Jock Semple attempted to physically remove Switzer from the marathon after discovering she was female. Other runners, including Switzer’s boyfriend Tom Miller, blocked Semple and she was able to complete the marathon. Pictures of the incident and the story of Switzer’s participation in the marathon made global headlines.”
Just… why. I can’t wrap my head around it.
NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY
This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.
This article is so fucking terrible. Why even write this? What made Penelope Trunk get up in the morning and go “hey, it’s really important that I shit out a few disempowering paragraphs and discourage people from seeking justice today! We should just accept our inevitable discomfort as the weaker sex!”??
Here’s a genuine screenshot from her blog, about which she has tweeted “I am ready to tell all women how to live their adult life.”:
The willful self-subordination makes me weep.
Ummm just went to look at the article. I can not believe this. It says it was published in 2011, you’re telling me that in all this time no one thought to take this hateful shit down?
This is very important if you’re ever in a situation similar this pretend that you’re dead don’t scream and @#!*%
my dad told us this if someone shoots up our school
PLEASE REMEMBER THIS
not even a joke we learned this in Police Explorers and put it on your clothing as well but go quickly because you don’t know where the person is.
i will never not reblog this
