NCSU students form a barrier around Abortion No’s graphic and triggering signs

What a great way to have your say and show respect and care for your fellow students. Does anyone remember this?

Angel Action helps counter-protestors protect others from the Westboro Baptist Church at funerals and court appearances, standing silently, sometimes carrying supportive signs, and wearing 10-foot wings to block the posters and hateful messages. Their website has instructions for making the wings.

That’s what this counter-protest reminds me of.

23 times feminist campaigns changed the world

Remember when everyone was like “Feminism is so dead?” Well, the last few years have absolutely proved that theory wrong.

Activists have become increasingly skilled in the digital age at using the sophisticated online tools to galvanize social change. The result? Amazing feminists are changing the world.

Here’s a look at the incredible digital campaigns in recent memory resulting in amazing feminist victories. There’s tons of work left to be done, but these moments are worth celebrating. They are a strong reminder of why we keep on fighting.

See the full list

Follow policymic

I strongly suggest celebrating the first 22, and then tackling and checking the last one, it needs to get more signal than it gets.

By the way, this is the ONLY women’s library in the country, it has only women’s work in it and also serves as a sort of feminist museum. They’re affiliated with a university close by and hold regular events such as workshops and talks on subjects like the poetry of immigrant women of colour or the representation of mental health in women’s literature. Its also due to be closed down by the Conservatives.




Can men go in and borrow books written by women?

Yeah, totally, they even do events for men by women on intro to feminism, rape culture stuff sometimes!

god forbid women have a single fucking thing without men getting jealous like fucking children

So. Yeah. I want this to be the point we hit. Where we nail them to the wall, every time they open their mouths. NEVER let them forget this. NEVER let them DODGE this. Ensure that if they take VITAL HEALTHCARE from women, they absolutely have to take this pandering bullshit away from the men.

Every. Single. Time. They. Open. Their. Goddamn. Mouths. About. Women’s. Necessary. HEALTHCARE(because the pill is literally life saving for some women). Bring. THIS. Up.

SIGN THIS PETITION TO KEEP ROLEPLAY ALIVE. →

flamehans:

TheSOPA (Stop Online Privacy Act) bill has resurfaced and is once again trying to be passed.

The link attached will take you to a petition. Unless this petition reaches 100,000signatures by next week, this will happen:

  • All websites containing media that refers to or is owned by a company that hasn’t given its permission for the media to be displayed can and will be shut down. This means sites such as Tumblr, Wattpad, Pinterist, fanfiction.com.
  • People who post such media can and will be fined, with a maximum sentence of five years in prison. This includes, but is not limited to, people who own/post the following: fanfiction, fan art, roleplay blogs, fan blogs/accounts and movie streaming sites.

"The legislation would allow copyright holders and the Justice Department to seek court orders against websites associated with copyright infringement. SOPA, the House version, applies to both domestic and foreign websites, while PIPA targets foreign websites. If that court order is granted, the entire website would be taken down. Internet users who typed in the site’s URL address would receive an error message, and for all appearances, the site would never have existed. Importantly, the court does not need to hear a defense from the actual website before issuing its ruling. The entire website can be condemned without a trial or even a traditional court hearing."

This is not a joke.
This is real.

We need 100,000 signatures by next week. Make one of them yours, or all these things that make you happy will disappear.

It’s back on the plate again! They’re “Still trying to work on it” and frankly, we’d rather they didn’t.

Sign it, reblog it, make noise, get others to sign it, they make noise, they get others to sign it, those people make noise… eventually when we have 500k+ people making noise constantly and consistently against it, maybe someone in power might give a hot damn for more than 2 seconds. And, Yanno, stop trying to pander to the freaking lobbyists. D:

Till then, they will keep trying to do this bullshit.

I’m glad Elementary shows the sexism women face. Joan Watson has been insulted, belittled, and underestimated numerous times. And each time she is shown to be a boss, a role model, more than capable at handling anything thrown at her without being portrayed as a bitch. She handles these situations by calling people out on their B.S., and continues on her way. She’s done this with Gregson, Sherlock, Moriarty, and many minor characters.

Lucy Liu is amazing, and I love that Joan Watson does not just brush off or accept these subtle sexist aggressions. She calls people out and is a boss with her words and actions while maintaining professionalism. 

#i think we need to add beyonce into the joan watson soundtrack because this scene is the definition of ‘bow down bitches’

What do you mean how did they get away with it?
History isn’t one straight line progressing towards a liberal society.
Look how much Americans attitudes have changed between 1980 and today. 1980 was the first time most very religious people voted, they abstained before that at the behest of their churches. Now they dictate policy at every election.
In my family photo album there are pictures from the 20s of a woman called ‘uncle bob’. She dressed in men’s clothing, and had a ‘companion’. This was a rough industrial town, they were working class, nobody cared. It was her business.
This is why politics is important - the moment you think everything is better today than it was in the past, you let other people take control of the direction society goes in - with you sitting back presuming we’re going forwards.

Yeah. There’s a reason women need 500+ shelters.

You know what’s truly sad about that dudebro’s meme? if he had only made it male specific, just left the comparison thing off of it. He could have actually started a conversation about male issues. He could have focused it as an awareness campaign and urged people to take action. He could have researched and added resources for men facing these struggles. But no, he spent his time with a “But men!” message and not actually contributing anything to the causes we’re supposed to believe he cares about.

That last comment.

herein lies the problem with MRAs

So when someone posts comparative stats showing areas in which women are worse off and someone comments that sometimes men are worse off too, apparently they’re derailing the conversation. But when someone posts some comparative stats showing areas in which men are worse off, it’s a fucking free for all of who can be the biggest arsehole?
I’m seriously sick of this shit tumblr. Your petty little bickering and divisive crap. You all claim your definition of feminism demands rights for everyone, but don’t fucking act like it. This is why no one likes you. This is why you constantly have to fight against stigma.

Yes, but the difference between men doing it and women doing it?
The simple fact that men have All of Congress, and the Government backing them. Men already have all these resources at their fingertips.
Women and all persons with vaginas are being attacked daily, on multiple levels. Not the least of which is the sad fact that their very wombs are not their own, and they are loosing ground for the right to have bodily autonomy.
This is the same argument that some white people have against the NAACP, etc. “Where is the white equivalent of the NAACP?” Congress. The Senate. Government and Western Society in general.
This guy didn’t post facts to edify, he did it to TEAR DOWN THE ARGUMENT THAT WE NEED EQUALITY.
So no, I will not be chutted for this post.
Women, as a whole, are treated as closer to second class citizens, minority women even worse. We are objectified, vilified, patronized, and in general degraded in every way.
Men? do not get to come into the argument and say “your argument is invalid, what about me” they have the privilege to ignore the suffering of women. As women, we don’t.

To quote the person really highlighting the point here:
"He could have actually started a conversation about male issues. He could have focused it as an awareness campaign and urged people to take action. He could have researched and added resources for men facing these struggles. But no, he spent his time with a “But men!” message and not actually contributing anything to the causes we’re supposed to believe he cares about."

MEN are the 1st class citizens. When we compare to them, we are highlighting our second class position and how unequal it is across the board.
when MEN compare choice stats, they are saying that our argument is invalidated by theirs. They are saying that, surprise, it is all about them, and that we are wrong for questioning the status quo.

There was another post that summed this up in a couple of animations:
A machine is dropping ice cream scoops.
The boy catches and eats 4 in a row, leaving none for the girl.
When the girl finally manages to catch one, the boy screams and drops his cone. He goes and shouts MISANDRY! WOMEN ARE TAKING ALL THE ICECREAM! on the internet.
And he gets support and feedback that women are evil and bad and she stole that icecream, that bitch.
By supporting his statement of crying Misandry, you are supporting that he deserves, by accident of having a y chromosome at birth, more than the other half of the population born with XX.

I support that BOTH should be equal.
This guy was being a dickwad.
He was taken to task for it, and it was done so without calling him a complete and utter asshat. In FACT, the thread went OUT OF IT’S WAY to say that what he brought up NEEDS ATTENTION, but that the asshat OP did it in a way that undermines females, who are already second class, and that that is what is not okay.
Sorry, I like you and all, but I am not putting up with being chided, not on this. Thanks.

Quote reblogged from Yet more and still stranger Thanfiction with 53,787 notes

[[trigger warning: rape]]

In response to the Steubenville, Ohio teen rape case, West Virginia U.S. Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld is launching a program to teach high school athletes not to post evidence of rape online.

It’s called “Project Future,” and his goal is to teach teens how to avoid getting in trouble with the law by using cell phones, cameras, and social media “responsibly.” Instead of teaching teens not to rape, the U.S. Attorney wants to teach them not to get caught.

This is rape culture at work: The very people who are in charge of enforcing our laws look at a cruel, brutal attack on a young girl and think, “If only the teens hadn’t posted photographic evidence online.”

"Project Future"  (via firefoxed)

According to Ihenfeld it DOES have a small little section on assault, and how they should ask themselves would they want that to happen to their sister or mother, which teaches these men that women are only important in how they are related to men, and they can then segment women into sluts who deserve it, and women like the ones they care about.

IT DOES NOTHING TO TEACH THEM TO NOT RAPE. Instead it’s a passing emotion play when men don’t buy into those. It does nothing to enforce the fact that women are PEOPLE.

Instead of asking if the boys would want to be anally raped because they were passed out/intoxicated(making them EMPATHIZE for god’s sake), it passes everything onto “would they want their sister (that they may not have) or mother (that they may not respect) to be raped”. It removes all responsibility and awareness that ALL women deserve respect and safety, and turns it into, women important to a man and who conform to the maiden or mother ideal deserve respect and safety, and thus implies ‘but if she’s a “slut” just don’t get caught’.

I will petition against this until his program focuses on rape for a full section, equal to ALL other coverage, and how EVERY time they hook up casually, consent should be express and vocal. As it stands it is trying to push how NOT to get caught, more than how NOT to rape.

And fuck anyone that says it’s unreasonable to want that, because the boys ‘are far more at risk from drugs or having their future ruined by the interwebs recording their mistakes’! You are saying that the girls they RAPE are worth LESS than the boys that do it.

And if that is what you feel? Get the hell off my blog.

Journalists at Sochi are live-tweeting their hilarious and gross hotel experiences

Amid continued debate over whether or not Sochi is prepared to host the 2014 Olympics, which begins Thursday, reporters from around the world are starting to check into local hotels — to their apparent grief. Some journalists arriving in Sochi are describing appalling conditions in the housing there, where only six of nine media hotels are ready for guests. Hotels are still under construction. Water, if it’s running, isn’t drinkable. One German photographer told the AP over the weekend that his hotel still had stray dogs and construction workers wandering in and out of rooms.

Toldja to boycott, now you’ll just have to suffer through it.

And possibly be discomforted enough to do some REAL reporting while you’re there. :/
