Rom com’s about marriage give me anxiety. I don’t want all that yet pop culture tries to shove it down my throat.

Self respect is about making choices that make you happy not about half or entire nudity, express sexuality and another independence expressions. #patriarchy #stopslutshaming #slutshaming #feminism

Ameena Matthews is a former gang member who now enters Chicago’s most dangerous neighborhoods and mediates disputes before they erupt into violence. When Matthews was heavily involved in gang activities, it was her Muslim faith, her children and grandmother who served as her own violence interrupters: "[My grandmother] would step in the middle of raids, asking, ‘Where’s Ameena?’ Guns were drawn and she’s not even looking at the guns or the gas that was thrown in the building to smoke us out, she’s yelling my name and telling me to get my behind out. … She was there."

Yeah, this. 
(also, I want that nautical jacket she’s wearing - it looks like a Dear Creatures piece!)
Here’s the video - it starts with the quote that I originally searched for: “I don’t even want a boyfriend!”

The Interrupters (2011) | dir. by Steve James (Hoop Dreams)
Synopsis: Shot over the course of a year, this award-winning documentarytells the moving stories of three CeaseFire Chicago “Violence Interrupters”— who have credibility on the streets because of their own personal histories — intervening in conflicts before they explode into violence.
These Interrupters include Ameena Matthews (former drug ring enforcer and daughter of Chicago’s notorious gang leader Jeff Forts), Cobe Williams (spent three stints in prison for drug related charges and attempted murder), and Eddie Bocanegra (spent 14 years in prison for a murder he committed when he was 17).
CeaseFire was founded in 1995 by an epidemiologist, Gary Slutkin, who believes that the spread of violence mimics the spread of infectious diseases, and so the treatment should be similar: go after the most infected, and stop the infection at its source. One of the cornerstones of the organization is the “Violence Interrupters” program, created by Tio Hardiman, who heads the program.
Duration: 2hr. 5min.
