the fact that there have no leaked nudes in my dashboard proves that i’m following the right people
it’s so gross that we live in a culture that commodifies the sexuality of unwilling participants so before you say “well she shouldn’t have taken nude pictures” ask yourself why somebody would steal and then sell private photos, is it really such a shock that women sometimes have breasts under their shirts, is it a shock that a woman can express her own sexuality in a controlled environment and just because she chooses to do that doesn’t give anyone an excuse to publish the photos without her consent.
Also I don’t see enough white feminists giving credit to Nicki Minaj beyond the interview of her doing her eyeliner. Did you guys forget that she recognized and IDed as cisgender, and recognized that vagina does not equal womanhood, when she called herself a “woman with vagina.” And that asshole talk show host laughed and said “as opposed to a women without one?” and she gave him a the meanest look and said “yes.” We need to gif that.
Michael Brown’s dad before the burial.
The emotion and all of the sweat…. shit is hard to look at, even if its only a picture
I didn’t want to reblog this because it’s hard to look at, but people SHOULD see it.
We SHOULD see a father mourning his teenage son.
We SHOULD see how a killing like Mike’s can take a toll on not only a community, but a family.
It’s as easy for young black men to become martyrs as it is for them to become victims. They can never just be humans.
We can never just be.
This video shows Frankie, Caleb, Cody, Christine, and Derrick joking around about RAPING and hurting Victoria. This is not only a violation of their Big Brother contracts but also a violation of federal law, as it is a crime to even talk about inflicting violence or harm on another person. I don’t care who you want to win Big Brother, I don’t care who you’re a fan of. Talking about women this way is WRONG and something has to be done about it. You can play Big Brother as kindly, cruelly, dirty, or clean as you’d like, but you cannot play Big Brother threatening to take someone’s virginity against their will after getting them drunk, get “blood everywhere”, and then laugh about it. At least not without getting put on blast on the internet.
Please spread this around on Tumblr, Twitter, any other social media you have, and pass it on to any blogs you follow that are relevant. We can’t let comments like this go unnoticed.
Straight to the point.
This shit is my favorite
A few more gems from this segment:
- "They mean it in a nice way."
- "It’s nice to get compliments."
- "As long as you don’t come within arms length, it’s fine."
But for many women, catcalls are humiliating and degrading. Some blame themselves, wondering what they could have done differently to prevent it. And the consequences can considerably affect a person’s social behavior and habits, as women report “they avoid eye contact and walking alone in public, or change their outfits or routes to avoid harassment.”
In reality, this is no small problem. According to Stop Street Harassment, “at least 65% of women have experienced catcalls, leers, and unwanted sexual propositions,” disproportionately affecting those with low incomes, women of color, and the LGBTQ community. And while there are federal laws protecting women from workplace harassment, street harassment is addressed on a state-by-state basis.
Let’s bring some voices of reason into this discussion:
Catcalling does not mean you are beautiful, smart, strong or interesting. Catcalling means a stranger values you so little he doesn’t care if he makes you feel uncomfortable or threatened.
Catcalling is about control, not about your cute shorts. It’s an assertion that women are just visitors in a male space, there to be assessed by appearance and summarily dismissed or flirted with.
To legitimize catcalling is to give voice to those who don’t deserve it: the man who told me he wanted to perform oral sex on me, the man who said he wanted it the other way around and the man who said he could have me if he wanted me.
The dehumanizing culture of catcalling must stop, but conservative media outlets like Fox aren’t helping. It’s up to us all to educate ourselves about the harms of harassment, so that women can truly be free in the streets of America.
