Feminist-a person who supports feminism.

Feminism-the advocacy of women’s rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men.

A great scene from ABC’s short-lived drama Commander in Chief starring Geena Davis.

Its almost like the conservative right and media have spun feminism as an “extremist” and vindictive movement aimning to take over the world and punish men. Its almost like our system wants to subserviate women to take advantage of them and maintain the status quo! D: yes…feminism is for everyone, and it is a good thing. Yay this show!

"We live in a world where losing your phone is more dramatic than losing your virginity"

Um ok but I don’t recall my virginity having 16 GB of memory with all my contacts, music, photos, calendars, and apps or costing over $200.

my phone is an expensive and important material object and not a useless social construct put in place to shame and commodify women

Plus I remember where I lost my virginity.

LOL!

Have you ever had a moment, when you just get so emotional that no words could describe what you’re going through?
I was in line to get my photo taken with Tyler Hoechlin, I was watching him with all the fans and I was just amazed on how sweet and kind he was. He shook everyones hands, told everyone his name and just bent over backwards to do any pose they asked him. He didn’t have to, but he wanted too.
I don’t know what happened. The escort told him I had 3 photos with him [the photos were 50, THATS CHEAP I GOT ALL I WANTED] He looked at me shocked, going, “wow 3 shots?” like he couldn’t believe someone wanted that many photos with him, I walked over, put my hand out to introduce myself and he just looked at me
And he smiled.
My mind just went blank, he took my hand, shook it and just smiled a smile that I can srsly not give you words. I just welled up, and just said the first thing in my head.
"I just want to hug you. That’s all."
And he laughed and opened his arms to me and I just surged up and hugged him, pressed my cheek into his own and I just wanted to thank him for being the sweetest man I have seen, for giving the fans who waited so long, whom watched him on T.V., people who saved every penny just for these mere seconds next to him, I wanted to thank him for making it feel as thou he truly was there just for us.
When I let him go, he told me that I wasn;t facing the camera and would I like to take another and I just shook my head and explained, ” I don’t care about my face, I got my hug from you.”
Tyler Hoechlin made my weekend.

IM PRETTY SURE YOU MADE HIS WEEKEND U LOVELY

Lol. Will you ever wash that shirt again!??! :P Good on you! Hoechlin is a super cool guy.

8 states with anti-gay laws similar to Russia’s

While the situation in Russia is dire, it’s hardly the only place to have instituted a law banning “gay propaganda.” In fact, as a map from the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Networkillustrates, eight U.S. states — Alabama, Arizona, Mississippi, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Utah — have laws banning the promotion of homosexuality in schools.

Realistic 

1)  The day my sister got back from the hospital after a suicide attempt. I didnt let go for about an hour.

2) Kid just found out his brother was shot and killed.

3) A Russian war veteran kneels beside the tank he spent the war in, now a monument.

4) Man sobbing at animal shelter. After being jailed briefly and his dog Buzz Lightyear impounded he couldn’t afford the $400 to get his pet back.

5) A firefighter gives water to a koala during the devastating Black Saturday bushfires that burned across Victoria, Australia, in 2009.

6) Alcoholic father with his son

7) Robert Peraza pauses at his son’s name on the 9/11 Memorial during the tenth anniversary ceremonies at the site of the World Trade Center.

8) Greg Cook hugs his dog Coco after finding her inside his destroyed home in Alabama following the Tornado in March, 2012

9) After two double lung transplants and years of battling cystic fibrosis, my good friend passed away last Saturday. This was one of the last pics taken with his mother.

This always wrecks me

This is real. And I don’t usually post things of such serious nature but, for some reason, I feel like some people need to see this.

Dog one kills me

FEELS! The saddest :( (and happiest, but mostly saddest)

Why are we so ashamed of periods? … Women’s bodies are incredibly sexualized in our media and in our every day experiences. So much so that even mentioning menstruation sends a lot of people into kindergarten levels of EW. And why? Because for a moment, you have broken the spell. And suddenly, you are no longer a magical mannequin unicorn fairy existing purely for the sexual fantasy of other people. Suddenly, you’re a human being! (X)

I notice this all the time. I have had women in my classes mention something about their period and then quickly apoligize saying something to the effect of “Im sorry, I shouldnt talk about such things!” I always tell them to talk about it anyways. more that 50% of the world is female. I think they should be able to talk about it regardless of context. Natural bodily functions? OMG GROSS!

Tl;DR: Talk about your periods when you want and fuck everyone who says otherwise. Women are more than 50% of the world! haha
