We were born to be real, not to be perfect.

He told me he wanted to be a “soccer star,” but wouldn’t say much else, probably because his teammates were hovering around him. But later on, when I asked the coach who the strongest player was, he pointed out this boy. “We made him captain,” the coach explained, “Because he takes it the most seriously. If we lose, he won’t talk for the rest of the day. He always shows up early to practice. If we’re not around, he organizes the team and has them ready when we arrive. And if anyone loses their temper during the game, he’ll reprimand them and tell them to just focus on winning.”(Juba, South Sudan)

  • Egyptian Shaykh: And the root of this word is the same as gharib. What does gharib mean?
  • Desi Uncle: Poor person.
  • Egyptian Shaykh: Poor person? No no no my brother. It means a stranger. The word for poor person is faqir.
  • 2nd Desi Uncle: Faqir doesn't mean poor! It means ah... what's the word?
  • 1st Desi Uncle: An ascetic!
  • Egyptian Shaykh: A who?
  • 1st Desi Uncle: Someone who rejects the world, like a monk or something.
  • Egyptian Shaykh: Urdu is weird.
  • [NB: The reason gharib means poor person in Urdu is because it comes from an Arabic phrase where someone is so poor they're called "a stranger to money"]

"In the United States, access to tampons and pads for low-income women is a real problem, too: food stamps don’t cover feminine hygiene products, so some women resort to selling their food stamps in order to pay for “luxuries” like tampons. Women in prison often don’t have access to sanitary products at all, and the high cost of a product that half the population needs multiple times a day, every month for approximately 30 years, is simply, well, bullshit."

- The case for free tampons (via stuffmomnevertoldyou)

You know, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anybody suggest that toilet paper or paper towels in public bathrooms shouldn’t be free.  We’d consider it outrageous if that very basic necessity were to be missing, or provided only for purchase.

And yet.
