  • black-lives-matter-lgbt“There’s no such thing as pure feeling. You have a feeling because you’ve filtered the experience through a particular lens. The feeling is the outcome. It probably feels natural, but of course it’s shaped by what you believe.” – Sam Adler-Bell, AlterNet
  • “By sharing that basic data, we empower everyone. And yet when I look deep into my heart and ask why I haven’t yet just typed my current salary here I must admit that it’s because the powers of taboo are strong in me, too.

And that’s what’s so terrifying about it.” – Emily Dreyfuss, Wired
