- “Gandhi boasted of the incident in his writings, pushing the message to all Indians that women should carry responsibility for sexual attacks upon them.”
- “Gandhi believed Indian women who were raped lost their value as human beings.”
- “He argued that fathers could be justified in killing daughters who had been sexually assaulted for the sake of family and community honour. “
- Incest. “He took to sleeping with naked young women, including his own great-niece, in order to “test” his commitment to celibacy.”
he wasn’t a saint.
Why she gotta be a bitch though?! Like they best friend with ghandi. Like they have childhood memories of eating graham crackers and sharing sippy cups. Y’all be doing the most on tumblr dead ass. Stay disrespecting strangers for no reason. Grow up.
Also he was anti-black pushing to keep apartheid from black people in south africa and only allowing opportunities for desi people in the region. And im pretty sure he just talked shit about black people in general.
Gandhi also said a bunch of shit shaming the Jews basically telling them they should have committed mass suicide rather than experience genocide during WWII because it was more “honorable”. People need to grow up, I hate this idolization of him.
She cut off the tattoo of he ex’s name, put it in a jar and mailed it to him.

Edmonia Lewis (1845-1909) was an African American and Native American sculptor that would find success despite discrimination for her race and gender. She was an art student at Oberlin College and would excel in her courses but would later drop out after being accused of theft and poisoning two classmates; this led to a mob beating her up severely, only to have her acquitted of any wrong doing at trial. She would later move to Boston to further her education in sculpting. Her big break would come in 1864 with a bust she made of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw being widely celebrated and selling many copies; this would supply her with enough money to move to Rome. She would spend most of her adult career in Italy and became a highly paid and internationally respected sculptor.Two of her most notable works are: Forever Free and The Death of Cleopatra.
