"Trees Against Environmentalism"
Here’s the whole comic.
fucking thank you
A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.
This is why we need feminism."
Telling your son not to “be such a girl” lets his sister who overhears the conversation know that being a girl is not a good thing and she should be sorry and ashamed of herself.
It also reminds your son that being a boy is better than being a girl and therefore he is better than any girl he will ever meet.
In russian if you cry you get called a cabbage. Vote to change “dont be such a girl to “dont be such a cabbage” say I.
The only sort of pictures you should be reblogging of Jennifer Lawrence
have unfollowed 20+ blogs on here already and i will unfollow anyone else who reblogs nude photos taken NON-CONSENSUALLY from these women. it is sexual violation (fueled by the objectification of women) and anybody who participates that is the literal scum of the earth
Don’t participate in a crime. Unless, of course, you want everyone who follows you to know that you are a perp.
everyone should reblog this just in case someone needs a sign to not do it
Reblog this no matter what type if blog you have. You never know if someone wants to end there life.

I cant believe the audience is laughing
Fitness magazines don’t help us get fit. Gazing at images of caricatured breasts, buttocks and biceps gives you the impression this is how a fit body should look, that every fit body needs to be shaped in the same vein. Fitness magazines use exactly these images to “inspire” women to look this way. Yet most of us can’t identify with what we are looking at because we don’t believe ordinary us could ever be them.
[…] What are we teaching our young women who want desperately to believe that they too can be as ripped and shredded? They don’t realize what it takes to look so tight. They want to be there and harm themselves to reach an almost unattainable ideal. When will it be acceptable to lift heavy, building confidence and brainpower while strengthening your body, not concerning yourself with how cute your bottom looks in booty shorts?
[…] Being fit in a functional rather than sexual way means you are entirely capable of being powerful no matter what your height, bust size, shoe size or hair color. You are empowered from the depths of your DNA because you did the work, you earned your place and you walk confidently because of it. A functionally fit You welcomes all sizes, shapes and colors, your boobs and butt are incidental. What we really need to build in the gym is a sense of self and what we are capable of.
!!! But add boys/men
We’re talking about women right now.
Or we can talk about everybody because there’s an unrealistic expectation for men as well as women
A word to everyone who reblogs posts with responses like the above:
If you actually cared about men’s issues, you wouldn’t tack them on as an afterthought to a woman’s conversation: You’d instead be actively engaging in dialogues that explore the nuances of men’s problems in society. You wouldn’t simply wait until a woman is speaking and then shout “Yeah, men too!” You’d talk about these things independently and give men the attention that they deserve as individuals, instead of waiting for a woman to do the work, shouldering her aside and then insisting that men be given a spot on the stage too.
If you actually cared about women’s issues, you wouldn’t demand that they give up their space. You’d recognize that conversations by women and about women are perfectly valid. When a woman is talking about her personal experiences and the way social pressures have affected her life, you wouldn’t allow her to be interrupted or derailed. You wouldn’t actively talk over her or steal away attention, focusing on issues that are outside of her point, until the conversation drifts so far away that you aren’t even discussing women anymore.
So both now and in the future, my answer here is going to remain the same: Can we talk about everyone?
We’re still talking about women right now.
"I’m sorry we live in a culture that commodifies the sexuality of unwilling participants."
“As experienced practitioners and researchers in obstetrics and gynaecology, we affirm that direct abortion – the purposeful destruction of the unborn child – is not medically necessary to save the life of a woman.
We uphold that there is a fundamental difference between abortion, and necessary medical treatments that are carried out to save the life of the mother, even if such treatment results in the loss of life of her unborn child.
We confirm that the prohibition of abortion does not affect, in any way, the availability of optimal care to pregnant women.”
I don’t know who keeps spreading this lie, but I don’t care if you’re pro-choice or pro-life—you NEED TO KNOW that pregnancy ABSOLUTELY can be a life threat to the pregnant person, and abortion ABSOLUTELY can save that pregnant person’s life.
I, myself, had to have my PLANNED AND WANTED pregnancy terminated in order to save my life. I had THREE opinions from three different OBGYN’s who DID NOT PROVIDE ABORTION SERVICES (i.e.—they would not profit from an abortion, and would in fact lose money from me/my insurance if I terminated), and they all said the baby and I would absolutely not survive the pregnancy.
In the sobering words of the last doctor I saw: “I would count it a literal miracle if you somehow survived past 20 weeks. You and your child are assured death if you proceed with this pregnancy. By terminating, you have a much better chance of at least saving your own life.”
I was so sick I was confined to my bed, forced to stop working for over a month, had lost 15 pounds by the sixth week, could not walk by myself, use the bathroom by myself, and would pass out if I tried to stand up. After I had my abortion, I almost IMMEDIATELY recovered, was able to live independently, and returned to work.
Listen, I don’t care what you personally believe—you’re entitled to your own opinions. But this is not up for discussion. This is not an opinion. This is fact: pregnancy absolutely can, has, and will pose a life-threat to many pregnant people whose lives can be saved through abortion.
Please stop spreading downright lies about medical facts.
