prochoicemongoose Have you guys seen pride? It's about the miners strike and the founding and battles of Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners. It's brilliant and shows the prejudice and homophobia that was around at the time, the spread of AIDS and the neoliberal policies of Thatcher and the tory government behind her. It shows that even with prejudice and the way society was that people learned to accept each other and battle for equality. There are also many references to socialism, womens rights and workers rights. It's unbelievably amazing. You laugh and cry your way through it. #pridemovie#lgsm#minersstrike#supporttheminers#equality#lgbt#thatcher#neoliberal#tories#thatcherism#downwiththatcher#socialism#womensrights#workersrights#breadandroses 1d

  •   a_cup_of_rose @herbivorous_gadfly you have become my guru! I only got rid of facebook to avoid distraction from school but you are my real-life inspiration. If you ever come to my neck of the woods here in Ontario, you forever have a place to stay in my home. If you make me delicious raw treats. 1d
  •   herbivorous_gadfly I'd love to 1d
  •   a_cup_of_rose And I'm sure you know my feelings about my post, if you read the hashtags. Gladly never bought nike wear to begin with since I almost always shop locally, but now I have readings under my belt to educate to others the importance of knowing your suppliers. 1d
  •   herbivorous_gadfly I did! Thank you for being a justice warrior hehe :) 1d
  •   a_cup_of_rose Thank YOU! It's one thing to repost an educational picture about an important other— slacktivism, it's been coined— and it's another to lead your LIFE by that picture, and teach others with an open heart. I'm keeping an eye on how you create your path, as I create mine. @herbivorous_gadfly 1d
  •   herbivorous_gadfly Wow that was beautiful worded! You are amazing! :) let me know if I can be of any help in any way ever :) 1d

zendoughboy "I intend to do what little one man can do to awaken the public conscience, and in the meantime I am not frightened by your menaces." —Upton Sinclair

You can make a positive difference in this world. You don't have to be Gandhi, Malala or MLK. Use your gift/talent/passion as a vehicle to impact the world. It's not the size of the impact. Just make one.

Upton used his gift of words and creativity (disguised himself while working for 6 months in a meatpacking plant for his book The Jungle) to spark changes in working conditions.
