"Scattered through the ordinary world there are books and artifacts and perhaps people who are like doorways into impossible realms, of impossible and contradictory truth."

To all the people I’ve offended today with my pro life talk, I’m sorry. It’s how I feel. I also understand that’s how you guys feel. We could argue with each other for days and probably get no where.

So…

1,200 aboriginal Canadian women have gone missing over the past 30 years. Hashtag asks #AmINext?

On Aug. 17, Winnipeg police pulled the body of 15-year-old Tina Fontaine out of the Red River near Alexander Docks.

The scope of the tragedy prompted Holly Jarret of Hamilton, Ont. — cousin to Loretta Saunders, an indigenous woman who was murdered in February at age 26 — to launch the #AmINext hashtag earlier this month.

So, what’s being done about it? | Follow micdotcom

It really confuses me when I see what is in the anti-feminism tags- a lot of people seem to think that feminists condone abusing or raping men, or that we only support ‘curvy women’, and that we don’t include POC in what we believe.
This is what we actually believe:

  • No one should ever be abused or raped, even if they are male or female
  • We support everyone and encourage them to love themselves
  • We don’t hate men
  • We want EQUAL rights for EVERYONE- men, women, people of all ethnicities, people of all social classes, people of all levels of intelligence, cis and transgender people, gay, straight, bisexual, asexual, demisexual, aromantic, polysexual people, people of any other sexuality
  • If you are a person, we want you to have equal rights to everyone else

to be honest mum,

  • if you’d rather your daughter put her energy into impressing males than trying to gain equal rights for women, there’s a problem.
  • if you don’t think men whistling and shouting vile things at women is sexist, we have a problem
  • if you don’t think that referring to women as…

Feminism: men, take note.

  • Impossible body standards imposed on men (such as being a macho muscled up guy) is a feminist issue.
  • Men being called “gay” or “weak” when they express emotion is a feminist issue.
  • Men not knowing how to please their partners in the bedroom (whether that partner is…

Is okay to be a feminist.

I need feminism, because I am tired of feeling ashamed of the way I dress because I think that man or whoever will look at me in a sick perverted way or I will be judged by my own gender. Because we as woman and girls have not learned to love each other the way we…

"

When he touches you, do not fold in his hand like an origami butterfly,
Do not crumble like a sand castle in a storm,
Do not apologize for the blemishes on your skin that make it your own.

Rise up and sink your fangs into the hand that feeds you the idea that you must be as small and frail and flawless as your grandmothers china doll.
Let your gaze burn with passion
And your fingernails be as deadly as razors.
Let your fists be as strong as hammers
And let your lips be glossed with poison for anyone who dares touch you against your will.

"

You are so much bigger than they ever dared to imagine and it’s time you embraced it (via itsallcha0s)

I have a really hard time understanding “antifeminists” especially when they are women because god forbid we get some fucking equality and respect? I dont understand.

21. Refuse to be exploited, patronized, or treated as an inferior, an accessory, an ornament. Feel a solidarity with other women when they are. And do what you can to bring about change.

the reason you shouldn’t make rape jokes isn’t just because “you could possibly trigger a rape survivor” (which could happen but not everyone is offended or triggered by the same thing just because they were in similar situations) it’s because making rape jokes literally reduces rape to just that,…

Apparently wanting to be payed equally is bad because I’m a feminist? Ok. Guys I just want to support my fucking family ok? Just pay me equally you shit bags. I have to take care of my parents and my aunt in the future, so I’m pretty sure I need the payment.
