I don’t care if you have plastic surgery, if you bleach your hair, photoshop your pictures, get braces, wear hair extensions, wear contacts, wear a lot of makeup or none at all. If it makes you happy, if it is the way you wish to express and decorate…
Actually no, plastic surgery and many of the chemicals in beauty products are carcinogenic or in other ways harmful, and there is a lot of pain that we force ourselves through to attain “beauty.” So it’s not just how we perceive it.
In 31 states, rapists are allowed to sue victims they’ve impregnated for custody rights. There is clearly something wrong with a society that allows this to happen; our awareness of rape is shockingly small, as even our statistics can’t be trusted due to our inability to define rape as exactly what it is. According to the Bureau of Justice, the estimate of women raped in one year in the United States is approximately 300,000; however, according to the Centers for Disease Control, the estimate is 1.3 million.
We need to stop ignoring rape in the United States, and a way to start is by creating laws that bring only justice to the victims and treat rapists just as they are; criminals. When rapists can receive custody rights, they’re given the opportunity to abuse their victims even further.
EVERYONE NEEDS TO SIGN THIS SHIT
Really, please reblog always
imagine if women threatened to jerk off over someone else’s suffering
hahaha oh man
I don’t care if you have plastic surgery, if you bleach your hair, photoshop your pictures, get braces, wear hair extensions, wear contacts, wear a lot of makeup or none at all. If it makes you happy, if it is the way you wish to express and decorate yourself, that’s awesome! Keep at it! And just because you are not au natural doesn’t mean you are less of a person, nor does it mean you are any less beautiful.
However, ahem… Lets not confuse shaming women for engaging in beauty practices with dissecting and criticizing the practices themselves and how they are harmful to women. The fact is, beauty practices hurt us a lot more than they help.
sexist geek boys gettin frustrated at the fact that Artemisia I has a leading role in 300: Rise of an Empire. Especially hilarious considering Artemisia actually was a powerful Greek commander who fought in the naval Battle of Artemisium and Battle of Salamis, and was a great influence to Xerxes during the Greco-Persian Wars.
I hate fake nerd boys who don’t bother researching the source material before pretending to be a fan.
Battered women are morally entitled to kill their abusive partners, even those who are passed out or asleep, says respected University of Ottawa law professor Elizabeth Sheehy. She raises the provocative idea in her new book, Defending Battered Women on Trial, to be published Dec. 15.
check out all the abusive fucks sweating bullets in the comment section.
“When women kill to save their own lives, they assert that they matter, that their lives count — even more than the lives of their abusers.” After all their abusers have done to them, “they have somehow taken a stand for their own humanity and saved themselves,” she writes. “And for this we should also be grateful.”- i like this woman, she makes sense

Who came up with the rule that everyone who does not identify as genderqueer/trans* is automatically cis?
Seriously who? Who decided that I’m “cis” and thus comfortable with gender roles forced upon me against my will?
And why should I accept this…
Men are whatever men say they are and women are whatever men say they are.
We call that dominance and submission, the official dance of the patriarchy.
Feminists have long argued against the notion of innate ‘female’ or ‘male’ characteristics, pointing out the ways in which socialization impacts and shapes our behaviour. Yet a recent study out of Penn Medicine claims that there are, in fact, ‘hardwired difference between male and female brains’ that explain why men are supposedly better at certain tasks than women and vice versa.
In this episode, I speak with Rebecca Jordan-Young, a sociomedical scientist at Barnard College and the author of Brain Storm: The Flaws in the Science of Sex Differences, about the study.
