I might have reblogged this already but it’s so good I don’t care.
Kyriarchy in action.
Also the study where they had women and men talking in a discussion and when women spoke around 30% of the time, men perceived them as dominating the discussion. They didn’t consider it “equal” until something like 5-10% of women talking.
Voila. A beautiful example of why fighting for equality becomes a gross exaggeration in the eyes of the oppressors.
I’m planning my wedding and basically being told that if I don’t take my fiance’s last name, people will judge me… . I don’t know what to do. I’m feeling the pressure from all sides, including from my fiance. I don’t want to make my name longer and I don’t want to be Dr. _____ someday when I had always dreamed of having my family name. And my name just sounds better. -____-

Hey tumblr friends and lovers,
Does anyone know of any organizations that provide fundraising for abortions? One of my best friends is in need. We have contacted Planned Parenthood and Lovejoy Surgical Center, the only two providers in the Portland area. They are each asking for around $450. Because she is pregnant, she would normally qualify for OHP-Plus, but she is undocumented and does not have a social security number and therefore cannot apply for benefits.
We are looking for some kind of independent organization that provides funds for women in need. Any culturally-sensitive or Latin@-based organizations/connections would be especially appreciated.
Thank-you everyone in advance!
Stop telling women that we should find ourselves beautiful and that we should love ourselves when you are standing right there, judging us on how our knees look in short skirts and how prominent our boobs are in a sweater and how much makeup we are or are not wearing.
Instead of us working harder on “love your body” and “find your inner beauty”, the rest of the world should be working harder on “stop telling women their bodies are a shameful place to live but that if they’re strong enough, they will learn to embrace that shame.”
This is my body. It’s not “beautiful”. I don’t “love it”. I don’t have to. I don’t have to have any strong feelings about my body. And whatever feelings I do have are not somehow invalid if they’re not glowing reviews.

my grandma put a little piece of her birthday cake in the garbage can and i was like why the heck did you do that and she said “it’s important to leave some for the raccoons because what if it’s a raccoon’s birthday and no one remembers??”

It’s easy to say “fuck cultural identities, we’re all human” when your culture is not the one being exploited, marginalized and oppressed. It’s easy to say “fuck borders” when your country is the one who puts up the borders. And it is really fucking easy to say “we all bleed red” when it’s not bodies of your people riddled with bullets because Western capitalism has a price.
