For Women’s History Month, we’re recognizing Massachusetts women who are MAKING history! Ayanna Pressley was the first woman of color to be elected to the Boston City Council. She stands with Planned Parenthood and has been a strong advocate for sex ed in Boston Public Schools. 

I love Ayanna Pressley!

Why Guys Like Asian Girls - Anna Akana

Everyone needs to watch this video. Now.

100% on point especially about men thinking that having “yellow fever” is a compliment and we’re supposed to be flattered by it. It’s the #1 way to parade around your blatant racism.

Harbor Police arrested a 29-year-old man early Sunday morning, July 27th in a hotel at 333 West Harbor Drive. He was booked into San Diego County Jail at 11:20 am on charges of sexual contact with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of minor. The victim, a juvenile female, was transported to a hospital for evaluation and treatment. The Harbor Police Investigations Unit is handling the incident. This investigation is ongoing.

HE HAS BEEN ARRESTED.

For those who don’t know what has been happening,

According to the girl’s mother, her injuries are severe, and indicate a vicious beating. Here is the account of what occurred from Tumblr:

IF YOU WENT TO SAN DIEGO COMIC CON OR KNOW ANYONE WHO HAS, PLEASE READ.

One of my dearest friends was found on the side of the road, unconscious and bloody. She was wearing this cosplay on the day it happened. She was last seen with friends when she ran off after a disagreement. Please, please, please, if you have ANY information or saw her anywhere, contact her mother. The full information is down below. This isn’t okay and it’s sickening to know that this happened at a place people truly can enjoy themselves. Please spread the word.

”I just received a call from the San Diego Police Department and my daughter REDACTED aka REDACTED was found on the side of the road covered in blood with no ID unconscious. They are unsure what happened to her. My husband is on his way to the police station and then the hospital. If you have any information on what happened to her please send me a facebook message or call me at REDACTED. Thank you in advance”. -REDACTED

Remember when SDCC said they didn’t want to make their anti-harassment policy clear because it would make it seem like there was a problem? (more)

well too fucking bad, now it REALLY looks like you have a problem, you fucks.


ask-an-mra-anything:

sure we’ve never had a woman president, the majority of politicians and CEOs are men, a woman needs a masters degree just to make the same money as a man with a BA doing the same job, rape cases are grossly under prosecuted, and we teach young girls that they’re “asking for” rape based on what they’re wearing

but let’s talk about the REAL issues like how some woman on the internet is selling a coffee mug with the words “male tears” printed on it



80sgirlfriend:

Please report this tweet and this man’s twitter, it would only take a minute or two. What this implies is absolutely horrific and people like him are why we have major issues like child molestation and rape. Just because this young girl is “more developed” it doesn’t make this ok in any way, shape or form. This could be considered child pornography, people are treating this like a joke. People are even talking about her in the replies, and siding with the man…I think I even saw the “what she was wearing” excuse being accepted. This needs to be treated as a potential predator. The tweet url is here -> https://twitter.com/yung_wifebeater/status/492389414900101120 and you are going to need to copy and paste that for when you file a report for harassment. I am absolutely disgusted at how far the internet has gone to make a “joke”. Signal boost this, this isn’t something that needs to be taken lightly.

loryisunabletosupinate:

Once again, I, Lory, have a stand up show coming up on Saturday, 8/2.

Here are the requirements in order for me to perform:

1. I need 5 people to show up at the show in my name

2. That’s it!

Yup! All I need is 5 people to show up in my name in order for me to perform!

This is important to me because I want to do comedy for a living and this is sort of part of the process. Nobody likes doing Bringer Shows (what we call them) but they’re necessary.

My show is in New York City at 5:30. It’s only $20 and there is no food or drink minimum. You do have to be above 16 to attend.

If you are able to go, please send me an ask for more information (exact show location and things you have to do).

If you cannot go, please signal boost!!! This has worked before and I’ve actually made friends doing this in the past.

Thank you and please help me out!!!

HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

Holy schnikes.

Then why the fuck am I so broke

It’s because white cis women are the only women allowed enough nuance of personality to afford not to perform femininity to the high degree that women of color or trans women have to in order to be respected. That’s why it’s cute and Feminist! if white cis girls have hairy legs while Mexican girls are made fun of for having lip hair

WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH STRAIGHT BOYS

This makes me feel so guilty.


"A study on masculinity and aggression from the University of South Florida found that innocuous – yet feminine – tasks could produce profound anxiety in men. As part of the study, a group of men were asked to perform a stereotypically feminine act – braiding hair in this case — while a control group braided rope. Following the act, the men were given the option to either solve a puzzle or punch a heavy bag. Not surprisingly, the men who performed the task that threatened their masculinity were far more likely to punch the bag; again, violence serving as a way to reestablish their masculine identity. A follow-up had both groups punch the bag after braiding either hair or rope; the men who braided the hair punched the bag much harder. A third experiment, all the participants braided hair, but were split into two groups: those who got to punch the bag afterwards and those who didn’t. The men who were prevented from punching the bag started to show acute signs of anxiety and distress from not being able to reconfirm their masculinity."
