    Think about the first name you were ever called,
    and then think how long it took until
    you got called a pussy
    or a slut,
    or a bitch,
    or a whore,
    all of which are words that fall too close to ‘girl.’

    Think about the first time you got called a ‘girl’
    and they said it with a sneer.
    Like it was a bad thing.

    For a boy, it is the lowest degradation to get called a girl.
    For a girl, it is the lowest degradation to get called a girl.

    Remember, black widow spiders and female praying mantises eat their partners after intercourse.
    Remember, it’s the lionesses who hunt.
    They come back with bloody muzzles, dragging bloated carcasses as the alpha lion strides around with his mane puffing out.
    Remember, it’s only the female mosquitoes who drink blood.
    We’re the ones who do the necessary work, dirty our hands,
    fuck or fight or both.
    We’re often the smaller sex, which makes us a harder target
    as we slink close and sink our teeth in.

    Remember: we’re deadly.

    You should be proud to be called a girl.

If you think this isn’t the damn truth you should know that a few years back, my campus newspaper ran an article that said fat women should be grateful for rape because it’s the only way they’ll ever feel worthy of a man’s attention.
I shit you not.

yeah, I’ve been told on multiple occasions during casual conversations that I’m not pretty/skinny enough to be raped, so that’s a thing

    Attackers Abduct 200 Nigerian Schoolgirls

    Gunmen reportedly arrived at the school in Chibok, Borno state, late last night, and ordered the hostel’s teenage residents on to lorries.

    Parents told the BBC’s Hausa service that at least 200 girls had been abducted. The attackers are thought to be from the Islamist group, Boko Haram.

    The situation has been spinning out of control for months and is getting worse. Something needs to be done. My thoughts are with the girls and their families.

    I’m gonna reblog this every day until you start understanding.

    No, wrong. This is a false equivalence. Hating the oppressor is not the same as hating the oppressed. Venting your frustration with the system that keeps you subordinate is not unjustified. Being cautious around people who belong to a group that oppresses you is not “just as bad.” If someone says they hate the privileged group you belong to and you haven’t done anything to merit that hatred, they’re not talking about you. Take the opportunity to examine your behaviour, make sure you haven’t done anything shitty, and if you haven’t, move on.

    There is so much injustice in the world, and the people behind posts like this one are demanding that we tone down our reactions, and you know why that is? Because anger is a productive emotion. Angry people get things done.

    Being nice to oppressors gets us nothing. Demand what you deserve. Take it. And laugh at anyone who tone polices you.

    Accepting that bisexuality is a valid sexual orientation is the same as accepting people for who they say they are, even if it goes beyond what you can understand. To deny the legitimacy of bisexuality because it is outside of our own comprehension is no better than the attitude of the many people who have dismissed homosexuality as being nothing more than a phase, a mental illness, or something that can be fixed.

    As gay men and women, we do not allow anyone to deny the legitimacy or authenticity of who we are. We are a culture forged in the steadfast belief that we, as people, were born this way. In spite of the many well-organized efforts to dismiss the validity of our sexuality, we stuck to what we knew was true in our gut. So to casually dismiss bisexuals as either confused straight people or homos in hiding goes directly against the logic that we demand heterosexual naysayers to adopt.

Mississippi recently passed a law allowing businesses to deny LGBT people on religious grounds, but some business owners aren’t having it. Hundreds of businesses throughout the state are displaying these stickers in their windows to demonstrate their commitment to equality. It’s part of “If You’re Buying, We’re Selling,” a campaign by Equality Mississippi and 30 local businesses to combat harmful effects of the religious freedom bill. Yes, yes, yes. Mississippians, look for this when you shop. (via The Advocate)
