unwinona: And then I debated whether or not to put it on Tumblr…but I decided it was important. Because in my own way, I can (unfortunately) point out exactly what is wrong with men when they don’t realize how hard it is to be a woman. How we do not have equal opportunities and freedoms in… Holy fuck. This is. Wow. Like I got so upset for the writer that I forgot how to breathe.

knaveryabounds: stop making villains so attractive it makes me question my morals We’re finally standing up against the Greek philosophies that beauty is indicative if goodness/virtue and vice versa. Allow evil to be beautiful, but acknowledge that it’s still evil. It’s a great lesson for the kids.

takemesiriusly: The facebook group called “Getting my girlfriend pregnant so she has bigger boobs” exists and people are trying to tell me that feminism isn’t necessary.
suncomingup: I wish I could make my boyfriend understand how important feminism is to me. Issues like consent and reproduction rights are so, so important because they’re issues that affect my life and my safety.

Dad: Oh, but she led him on. She let him kiss her and all that, if she didn't want to sleep with him, she shouldn't have done that
Me: No, she changed her mind. He doesn't have an entitlement to her body
