If I could offer a young person advice about anything it would be do NOT make life decisions based on your boyfriend or girlfriend. Girls especially. Do NOT stay close to home for him, do not skip opportunities to travel or study abroad, do not pick a safe college to be with him. Expand your horizons. Broaden your own life. He is not the world.

How about travel the world FOR him? ;)

no

Why do antifeminists/MRAs/anti-SJs always blame feminists for things that patriarchy is responsible for like male genital mutilation and society’s inability to grasp the concept of male rape (that’s patriarchy’s “rape culture” btw, you’re welcome). Then these same folks…

After threats against her life, Anita Sarkeesian canceled an upcoming talk at Utah State University. Gamergate trolls are celebrating on Twitter while simultaneously dismissing the threats as nothing. Does this read like nothing to you?

“I will write my manifesto in her spilled blood, and you will all bear witness to what feminist lies and poison have done to the men of America.”

The email’s author threatened to murder feminist women indiscriminately in a mass shooting. And because carrying guns on campus outweigh the right of students and guests to be safe, Anita Sarkeesian canceled her talk.

BUT WE SHOULDN’T FEEL THREATENED, RIGHT?

BECAUSE IT’S JUST THE INTERNET, RIGHT?

The bullies won this time. And if you think this shit isn’t dangerous, I’m fresh out of fucks to give and I’m not restocking any time soon. It’s goddamn wrong to to dismiss this by claiming the author isn’t serious. Elliot Rodger’s rantings were dismissed until it was too late.

This. Is. Not. OK.

guns… literally more important than the lives of women in the state of loveable mormons

the victoria secret models don’t even look human??

The Victoria’s Secret models worked their butt off to look like that, so don’t degrade people on their hard work. All the women in this post are beautiful.

THANK YOU

Literally shut up

It is literally the Victoria Secret model’s job to look like that and it is a full time job. Every single woman pictured here is absolutely gorgeous. Don’t be an asshole.

but i think it also needs to be said that the victoria’s secret ad shows no diversity in body type. while there’s absolutely nothing wrong with any of the ladies pictured, the fact is that there’s no representation for larger women, which is pretty fucking important when the name of your campaign is ‘love your body’. they’re not even acknowledging that any other body type exists, and that’s not okay.

ok but

even the obviously more diverse models in the Dove campaign have been photo-shopped and slimmed down, and there isn’t one fat stomach among them. I’m going to say it: if you want to endorse body-positivity, GO BIG OR GO HOME.

Also Dove is run by the same company that owns Axe. Sexist, anti-fat, homophobic Axe. With one breath we’re being told that we’re beautiful no matter what-as-long-as-we-have-flat-tummies, with the next we’re told that we’re worthless as anything more than sex objects for straight men anyway.

sorry to ruin your day, but even though all the women above are beautiful neither of these advertisements truly endorse self-love or body positivity unless you’re thin.
