plus sized models are JUST as unrealistic as skinny models.
They have been elongated, their cellulite has been brushed out, waists pinched and hips widened and rounded.
It makes us think “I’m not even plus sized pretty” when NO-ONE IS.
They aren’t being forward thinking.
They aren’t embracing body positivity
They’ve just creating another unrealistic standard for women to hate themselves for.
By the age of 12
a girl knows not to play with dolls anymore.
She knows to put playthings down,
and maybe pick up a book,
and maybe pick up several
dreams in the process.
By the age of 12
a girl knows what make up is
but she may not know how to put it on.
Eyeliner poses the risk…
every time i see black people create a space for black people only, i also see them start to struggle with whether or not to make it open to all poc, and then utlimately to white people, too.
i hate that, yo
make spaces for us by us and don’t hesitate or feel bad about it, cause nobody has ever lost slept over shutting us out of spaces
i dragged @blkdzn so hard he deleted his post about encyclopaedias and is now saying he doesn’t care about anything anymore :(( truly a broken man
bitch do you mind coming to my ask box I mean clearly you want my attention. Bitch what do you want bitch what do…
That fuck nigga would bring up Kanye! Blkdzn how does it feel to be a misogynist fuckboy?
there truly is nothing more fragile than the male ego. the worst thing you can do to a man, as a woman, is prove him wrong.
[Image: A tweet from Elizabeth Warren reading: “Every single Republican in the US Senate voted against equal pay for equal work for women today. Unreal. #equalpay.”]
Read it again: EVERY. SINGLE. REPUBLICAN. Yes, that includes women.
I do not understand Republican women because I don’t get how you can be in a party, even as a super privileged white woman, knowing that they WILL turn on you. That their agenda to maintain the violent supremacy of white men will eventually whip around and slap you in the face.
Your party’s congressional representatives didn’t think your work and time and life were as valuable as men’s.
HOW THE FUCK ARE YOU A REPUBLICAN, WOMAN? What kind of states rights, purse clutching bullshit is so tempting that you’ll stay in a party that has clearly made it known you are inferior to them?
TW: Rape; Racism; Sexual Assault - Why my Rapist's Race is Relevant
I often point out the race of my rapist, and a lot of people think I have an issue with white men due to it. That is not the case, but there is a good reason why I point out his race. As a child of diaspora my people (black women) were raped by white men and it was not a crime, so the fact that I…
Hello!! I’m in need of a HUGE signal boost right now (and maybe a big reporting session) because my best friend is being blackmailed by her ex boyfriend.
I’m not exactly sure what I’m supposed to put here, but I feel like this should be a warning for anyone who knows him and just a general informative thing. Jacob lives in Australia and is 16 years of age. They’ve had a very unhealthy relationship and he’s threatened sending out her nudes multiple times. Jacob is very manipulative and emotionally abusive towards her and even ends up pulling me and her other friends into not being able to do anything because it’ll end up hurting her. He’s made around 7 Twitter accounts to contact my friend in the times that she was trying to get out of the relationship.
In the picture above, he’s posted her nudes and threatened her.
ALL IM ASKING IS FOR YOU TO REPORT HIM ON EVERYTHING AND ANYTHING:
His Twitter accounts all start with @/neinthousand but the one that was most recently used was: @/neinthousand12 (but it was apparently deleted)
His Facebook account is:Jacob R Hynes, and he has more but I am unable to find them. They’re under Jacob Hynes and the like.
********** UPDATES!!! **********
First, we thought we had a compromise.
Then this happened not even a minute after:
PLEASE CONTINUE REBLOGGING THIS. My friend is only 15 years of age and this is absolutely horrible. We’re getting ahold of local authorities but if you see the pictures anywhere (namely twitter) REPORT THEM IMMEDIATELY.
Black people are effectively "almost genderless" (Huh?!)
Today I was arguing with another black man who insisted that black men do not have intraracial male privilege. As I brought up all of the gendered violence perpetrated against black women by black men, pay disparities, the vast preponderance of Civil Rights leaders being male, and the patriarchal…
"We, black women have always been supportive of black men in the struggle against racism, even while we were being raped. Even while rape and assault has been going on in our communities. This is important because so many react as if talking about rape and assault in our communities is somehow not being supportive of black men, or as if it were not being loyal to black men."
� Aishah Shahidah Simmons, ( Film Director of NO! The Rape Documentary)
Like as an African American you have no room to be talking bout other black communities issues but anywho.
Nobody is stronger than the black woman. Nobody.
Vox has a depressing list outlining the reality of violence that women face in the United States every day:
1. Most women experience physical abuse in their lifetime
2. Nearly one-quarter of women experience a physical or sexual assault by an intimate partner
3. Seven in ten assaults against women are perpetrated by an intimate partner
4. One in five women are raped in their lifetime
5. One in thirteen murder victims are killed by their husband or boyfriend
6. One in ten women has a head or spinal cord injury as a result of physical assault
7. But most assault victims don’t receive medical care
8. Eighteen percent of mass shooters have a domestic violence charge
9. Rates of sexual assault are declining
Why are straight white men’s rights activists are so insistent that women don’t need feminism? Why are online reactionaries so upset with “social justice warriors” for pointing these issues out?
Is the above reality the one they expect women to be satisfied with?
I suppose that’s why “the abuser’s lobby” is such an apt name for the men’s rights movement.
One in five though
