"It is a lonely feeling when someone you care about becomes a stranger."
"It’s hard not to feel humorless as a woman and a feminist, to recognize misogyny in so many forms, some great and some small, and know you’re not imagining things. It’s hard to be told to lighten up because if you lighten up any more, you’re going to float the fuck away. The problem is not that one of these things is happening, it’s that they are all happening, concurrently and constantly.
These are just songs. They are just jokes. They are just movies. It’s just a hug. They’re just breasts. Smile, you’re beautiful. Can’t a man pay you a compliment? In truth, this is all a symptom of a much more virulent cultural sickness — one where women exist to satisfy the whims of men, one where a woman’s worth is consistently diminished or entirely ignored."
I cannot believe Curvy Kate’s audacity to outright steal the work of a high school student for some insipid marketing message.
Shame on you, Curvy Kate. Shame on you.

SIGNAL BOOST RIP THEM A NEW ONE TUMBLR!
IT’S NOT EVEN A THING YOU SHOULD MARKET
NOT ONLY DID YOU STEAL THE GIRL’S WORK

THEY COMPLETELY RUINED HER MESSAGE AND TURNED IT UPSIDE DOWN. WHAT THE FUCK. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK I’M SO FUCKING MAD
feminism: the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes (what feminism does NOT mean: hating men)
I need feminism because the first time I shaved my head everyone called me “lesbian” or “boy”
I need feminism because everyone groans when I want to cut my hair shorter
"Why I liked your long hair! Grow it out!"
I need feminism because I was told not to shave my head because it’ll be harder for me to get a job
I need feminism because people associate girls with shaved heads with poor mental health
"She must have something wrong with her…"
I need feminism because I’m a girl and to be a girl you need to be “pretty” and to be pretty you need to be “feminine” and to be feminine that means having long hair
"Oh I could never do that to my hair!"
I need feminism because I can’t post this image on certain social medias without having it reported and taking down because women’s nipples are seen as inappropriate content
I need feminism because if in these pictures were a boy in boxers it would get a completely different reaction and none of these things would be an issue
okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.
