WHEN WE WERE LITTLE SOME TEACHER TOLD US, THE GIRLS, THAT WE WERE LIKE FLOWERS, AND EVERY MAN WE HAD TOOK A PETAL WITH THEM. IF WE HAD TOO MANY WE WOULD END UP LIKE AN UGLY, WITHERED FLOWER AND NO ONE WOULD WANT US
Oh my God, these people are horrible!
Yeah my school told us making out could cause pregnancy too.
when i was in middle school they gave a girl a giant red paper heart and had three or four guys each come up and rip a piece off - the last chunk left in her hand was supposed to symbolize her worth as a person after being with other people.

This is actually pretty important
very important information
This needs to be seen more. Rape needs to flat out stop, but until then victims need to know there’s support for them.
These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’
Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize.
BOOOM. Read this if you are a dude, please.
Its hard for men to understand why women dont get loud & angry because they havent spent their entire lives being reprimanded whenever they take up too much space. (via pluralfloral)
being friendly with a boy you aren’t romantically/physically attracted to and him developing feelings for you isn’t your fault, nor does it mean you were “leading him on”. you are under no obligation to date him.
a reminder to please please please let me know if i’ve been gross or something because forreal
the struggle to unlearn shit is real as fuck and i make mistakes
i’m not perfect and i still do gross shit and i’m working on being a better person and creating safe places for people
i see so many posts that are like “ahhh a friend of mine did something gross and i don’t know how to tell them” like if i’m ever that person please let me know
This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
It still amazes me that I talk to guys who still think they get harassed just as much as women online. Like even from people who aren’t clearly and totally gross dumbasses. It kinda makes me think that, even in the best cases, it might be hard to really understand the sheer difference in frequency. You see a woman get harassed on a game and you go “Oh well I’ve been harassed” without understanding that there is seldom a session for her where that doesn’t happen or understanding what her inbox might look like…
That is a sort of stunning degree of difference.
"The data’s in! Women were lying about online harassment!”
"Aha! We knew it!"
“Yeah, they’ve been severely underreporting how bad things are for them, turns out.”
I like the idea of taking every woman joke from the last season, and turning them into Moffat jokes.
do it, seriously, do it.
Maybe that way moffat-fans will finally notice what a crap their idol is doing.
because really, easy formula ‘replace ‘woman/girl/any term referring to a female character, cis or otherwise’ with ‘Moffat’. If his fans are outraged how mean you are to him, congrats, the original ‘joke’ was an unfunny sexist/transphobic piece of crap’
A to the MEN
I love .gif criticism that overwrites the images with sharper meaning. You wanna go there dude? Let’s go.
