Better resistance through self-love 🖤

Is mansplaining a thing? Of course it is. (with @alliekokesh)

In today's edition of Mansplaining Asshats of the World 🙄 “He told me if I keep running the muscle fibers are going to break down and my breasts will start sagging even more than they are now," she told the Daily News. “He was like ‘They’re already heading south. I don’t think you want that.’” The Long Island native, who said she has dealt with insecurities related to her breasts since she was little, was incensed by the man’s coarse comments but wanted to avoid “going all New Yorker” on him in the presence of her jogging partner, Lilly, her 18-month-old daughter pushed along in a stroller.

The reason she chose not to confront the man was because she was afraid of being physically harmed since she was alone with her baby daughter.

Can this sign just be put up everywhere please? 😂 -kaylee

Detail: Parsnips, Carrots, and Beans 60"x48"
In 17th Century England, “sowing the ground with parsnips, carrots, and beans” was considered an act of treason. It was the signature action of the Diggers, gardeners who had been impoverished by England’s sudden and arbitrary process of enclosing and privatizing the Commons. The humble act was the Diggers’ means by which to alleviate hunger, and free themselves from servitude and slavery. They felt that: “this freedom in the common earth is the poor’s right by law of creation and Equity of the Scriptures, for the Earth was not made for a few, but for whole mankind”. England responded to the vegetable crops with troops. But despite all military effort: guerilla gardening is alive and well-- in England and around the world-- to this day.
