Obama on gay adoption
yeah totally ruining this country what a horrible guy
Fun fact: Obama has attempted to fix almost everything that he promised to fix, but the republicans have voted almost all of his bills out of congress. He’s not the problem.
This image is one of the most powerful pro-choice images I’ve ever seen. When I saw it in the newspaper I immediately cut it out and hung it on my wall.
support birth control and women’s rights.
That was super nice of them.
And now I’m mad that nobody told us we were given cows. Cause that’s really f*cking nice and nobody mentioned it at all.
American media tends to disregard that anyone donates to the US. And then Amurricans complain about money going abroad because “nobody helped the US in our disasters.”
Also, do you know how much a cow costs? O.O
It isn’t just a matter of how much a cow costs, its a matter of considering that Masai life is based around their cattle. Its their wealth, their food, and a significant part of their religion. Here’s a quote from Wikipedia:
“Traditional Maasai lifestyle centres around their cattle which constitute their primary source of food. The measure of a man’s wealth is in terms of cattle and children. A herd of 50 cattle is respectable, and the more children the better. A man who has plenty of one but not the other is considered to be poor. A Maasai religious belief relates that God gave them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that rustling cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs, a practice that has become much less common.”
So its not just “they gave us 14 cows”, its that they gave us something that is very important and significant to them, it is more than just a kind gesture that definitely deserves to be known and its a genuine shame that more people don’t know about it.
Reminder: You are under no obligation to look pretty.
Not when you are laying around the house, not when you go to the grocery store, not when you sit in a classroom, not when you go to the gym. You are never obligated to get dressed up just so you are pretty for others.
Pretty is not the rent you pay to exist in the world as a woman.
The only thing that women have to do to be called a “man hater” is name male violence. That is it, any analysis they might have is brushed aside for being too “angry” or too narrowly focused.But when was the last time you heard a man called “woman hater”? Even when men are abusive, or rapists, or johns, or even when they kill women, they are not given that label. His actions are typically explained away, or at worse shoved to the fault of his victim.
Did you hear about the two CHILDREN in India. young teens, 14 and 15. Who were hanged to death... for getting gang raped.. by police..? It gets worse. About 24 hours ago rape became legal in India.. by vote... a country with 1 billion + people and the MAJORITY voted for that... So... I really can't figure out a complete sentence of my own right now...
The story about the two girls who were raped recently in Uttar Pradesh was terrible. The 3 men who confessed were not, however, police.
India has some very complex problems when it comes to rape and sexual violence that have a number of sources. Like many places, misogyny is very deeply rooted in the culture and while there are many working to change this, it will take a lot of work to make real progress.
Rape is mostly illegal in India, but marital rape is considered legal and some people in power still believe that rape is a suitable punishment for crime.
To be good allys to those working for real change in India, it is important that we get the facts straight. Like in the US, there are a lot of leaders who maintain a boys will be boys” attitude about rape.
This does not mean that the people of India as a whole support rape. (generalizations like this are dangerous!) More than 90% of Indian voters see the combating of violence against women as a priority, second only to corruption, the MDRA/Avaaz survey shows.
What it does mean is that they face a lot of the same issues as women all over the world when it comes to fearing for their safety and fighting lawmakers who impose restrictions on their basic human rights.
There are many brave individuals and groups in India who are fighting to gain ground for women. Fighting rape culture is not just a local endeavor. We must work to see it dismantled throughout the world. This includes supporting and listening to those in India who need our help. It requires that we educate ourselves on the issues with which they struggle and then learn how best we can help them fight for justice.
Just saw this in the mall- words cant describe how happy this made me.
Yes Wonder Woman… Hmm. Why are her boobs bigger than her head tho? …Brainwashing indeed. #Oxymoron
Why should her breasts (COMPLETELY COVERED by a CONSERVATIVE BUSINESS JACKET) have anything to do with her as a character—her intelligence, power or ability to be taken seriously when she speaks? #twat
I’m going to point out that the issue I always hear people have with Wonder Woman is her uniform. But Wonder Woman is a goddamn diplomat, an intelligent woman, and that doesn’t change no matter what she’s wearing. Most of the time, this is how she dresses anyway. You know, like the professional she is. But it’s dismissed. As if showing skin makes her a dumb, useless, blow up doll who can smash.
And let’s fucking face it, if I looked half as good as her I’d wear shorts and tank-tops all year round and that wouldn’t affect my abilities as an engineer any more than her uniform affects her abilities to be everything she is in a business suit.
And furthermore, let me explain something to you about female anatomy.
PEOPLE CAN HAVE BOOBS BIGGER THAN THEIR HEADS.
Does that make them brainwashed? No! That just means they probably have a hell of a harder time finding a bra than you tumblr user iturban.
Seriously, a woman’s intelligence is not determined by her breasts.
The organ that you’re thinking of is the brain.
Chick with boobs bigger than her head checking in here. And surprise! My boobs aren’t even considered to be medically overlarge. I’m a 36F and with a proper bra I experience no back or hip pain (related to my breasts—I do have swayback and have had back problems related to it since early childhood; ironically, the weight of my breasts actually helps by adding a mild correction to my spine!).
Do you know what I do experience?
Having to shop only at Goodwill and boutiques because assholes like you think cute clothes for large-breasted women don’t belong in places like Target or Kohl’s, and having trouble finding a swimsuit because all swimsuits are made for C-cup or smaller women. Having to drop $100+ per bra not because the bra itself is worth $100+, but because my size isn’t carried in most US stores even though it’s becoming a common cup size.
Having women I don’t know from Adam feel it’s their right to ask me, loudly, in front of men and children, “Are those real?” or “How much did those cost?” Occasionally, being delicately called a liar when I say they’re natural: “Wow, I didn’t know breasts got that big with no padding at all. What kind of bra do you wear?”
Having to tailor my T-shirts at home to add panels that will accommodate my breasts, because most women’s T-shirts are close-cropped in the chest; my waist fits like a medium, but my chest fits like an XL. My other option is wearing only men’s tees, which also require tailoring so they don’t look like I’m in a freakin’ dress.
Having to be turned out of store after store, face red, when a customer service rep stammers “Oh—we—we don’t carry sizes for women your size.”
Because we’re clearly all brainwashed sluts and bimbos. The mass of fatty tissue on our chests definitely defines our intelligence. I have an IQ higher than some US presidents and I work in management without having ever actually gotten a business degree, but yes, by all means, I’m just an idiot.
Because of my ginormous, bigger-than-my-head boobs.
