straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bys, pretty much anywhere.

the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments.

next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights

Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she was interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.

Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.

Help drop the child abuse charges against Shanesha Taylor by signing this petition at change.org.

It’s important to talk about how vaccines don’t cause autism, but can we please also talk about how much people must hate autism if they’d rather expose their child to polio, measles and chickenpox than autism?

sorry but children younger than her in the middle east get blown up by drones purely because of their proximity to suspected terrorists, i don’t really care about a dutch teenager getting arrested for sending a “joke” threatening tweet to an airline while claiming to be a member of al qaeda because she thought her obvious positions of privilege would protect her from any and all consequences

THIS ^

it was also a really racist “joke” and she deserved more than what she got, honestly

"Women are told it is unfeminine and gross to have muscles and to cultivate strength, which in turn leads them to actively avoid doing things that will build muscles and strength, which then makes them even less capable of doing things that require strength, which the critics then use as proof of women’s inherent physical frailty. And so the cycle continues…"

Women’s difficulty with pull-ups is about more than biology | Fit and Feminist (via rememo)

And I always want to point out here: women, on average, possess more lower-body strength, while men, on average, possess more upper-body strength. There’s a lot of overlap and it isn’t always individually applicable, but that’s the generalization, averaging across the population.

But we SOCIALLY value upper-body strength, and upper-body muscles. So we construct women as weaker, because we refuse to measure them on the body parts where they may be stronger, we devalue those.

Lifting is mostly done with the legs. So women may be as good or better at heavy lifting as men. But we socially construct lifting as having to do with large, muscular arms and chests. You don’t really need powerful arms and chests to lift—you need powerful thighs, otherwise you’re gonna throw your back out. We actually lie about what makes a person strong and capable to favor men.

Push-up and pull-ups are upper-body strength exercises. So they’re socially valued. The military doesn’t tell you to do 20 squats as penance. No one is fucking impressed by all the squats you can do. Squats just sound stupid, hah, squats. We laugh at them because women might be better at them than men, on average. They’re worthless.

(via iknewiwouldregretthis)

This stuff plays into all sorts of other body image problems, too. The body weight that’s regarded as ideal for women, for example, is really only achievable for individuals suffering from mild to moderate muscular atrophy. You literally can’t get there just by shedding fat - you also have to let your muscles waste away. We actually regard it as “normal” for a woman to be suffering from muscular atrophy.

(via dancing-painted-bears)

For the last six months I’ve been actively working towards doing pull-ups. I can squat fairly easily with 100lbs (could do more if my knees weren’t so wonky) and do all sorts of similar weights with other leg machines but my arms are weak as hell (see above). I’ve been lifting with all parts of my body but generally focusing on gaining strength in areas where I was particularly weak before, which is mostly in my arms. I can now lift more with my arms than ever before but am still far from being able to pull up my own body weight. And yet, too often, when I try to talk to female friends about this goal I get weird looks and talks about how I shouldn’t “bulk up.” When did we decide to start telling each other it was weird to want to be strong? Why should that be a thing that potentially makes me less attractive? It’s a good thing I just don’t give a shit.

I Got Myself Arrested So I Could Look Inside the Justice System

larockphotography:

sonofbaldwin:

This is for all of the individuals claiming that stop and frisk is not an inherently racist policy conceived by an inherently racist institution.

The institution is composed of and managed by the racist descendents of the same paddy rollers who caught and sometimes murdered runaway or freed slaves.

The policy, itself, relies on the perception of police officers, none of whom are properly trained to uphold justice, none of whom are psychologically or sociologically prepared for administering fairness in a culturally diverse environment, none of whom are equipped to protect the dignity or rights of the communities they invade.

Here is one white man’s testimony of just how blatantly racist the institution and policy are. If this is unbelievable to you, it is because you have been, regrettably, asleep.

But it is time you took the red pill and left the dream world for the real one.
