This chair is feminine! "La Chaise!"

Italian:

This chair is feminine! "La sedia!"

German:

This chair is masculine! "Der Stuhl!"

English:

This chair is a fucking object, I don't see a skirt or a pair of trousers anywhere on its cold hard surface, you people are fucking insane.

society:

oh you have your period? well you have two options.

woman:

okay.

society:

you can use sanitary pads, which make you feel like you are wearing a diaper, and have the added fun benefit of being extremely uncomfortable and give you the extreme paranoia that they will not be enough coverage and at any moment with any movement or sudden sneeze you'll bleed over onto your clothes and walk around all day with blood stained trousers while everyone points and laughs at you.

woman:

sounds awful. what's my second option.

society:

a penis shaped wad of cotton that you shove uncomfortably inside yourself and it catches the blood before it leaves your body.

woman:

still seems pretty awful.

society:

wait! it gets better! there's the outside chance that using those will kill you!

woman:

well, are they at least free? like how men can have access to free condoms? i mean, it's not like i'm choosing for this to happen.

society:

HAHAHA! that's funny. no, you have to pay for them. and they're really fucking expensive.

woman:

society:

oh, and if you tell anyone that you ARE on your period, your judgement, opinions, and reactions are going to be dismissed as the crazy ramblings of a lunatic.

woman:

society:

woman:

i think i'll go with my third option.

society:

woman:

society:

what third option?

woman:

i think i'll bleed on everything you love.

The premise of minimum wage, when it was introduced, was that a single wage earner should be able to own a home and support a family.  That was what it was based on; a full time job, any job, should be able to accomplish this.

The fact people scoff at this idea if presented nowadays, as though the people that ring up your groceries or hand you your burgers don’t deserve the luxury of a home and a family, is disgusting.

'All Love Is Equal' project shows what true love looks like around the world

While the candy hearts and stuffed teddy bears have likely already fallen victim to the inevitable post-Valentine’s Day purge, this stunning photo series by photographer Braden Summers reminds us of the power true love still holds in our imagination.

Summers’ “All Love is Equal” project depicts same-sex romances around the world, from Lebanon to the U.S. An artist inspired by the beauty around him, Summers told PolicyMic he was inspired to create the series after noticing the lack of same-sex representation in most romantic imagery.

See the full list and where each couple is from

This is so beautiful

Our school should do this

Miss Representation

Dr. Caroline Heldman breaks it down 

OMG THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIS

Amazing video. Should be required viewing for high school students. I may make it required viewing for my future college students.

"The Fighting Fucktoy" is my new favourite phrase.

See: Why male gaze is awful and needs to be addressed

This documentary was awesome and powerful definitely recommend that you guys watch it! 

To those who argue against the idea that physically strong characters are not necessarily empowered characters, I highly recommend watching Miss Representation. Also for TONS of other reasons (this is only one topic covered). Basically, watch Miss Representation.

A feminism comic I did for my uni’s newspaper. I wish I had a bit more time to work on it, but I’m pleased with how it came out considering the tight deadline!

Students Fed Up With Michelle Obama’s School Lunch Overhaul — Menu-Item Snapshots Spell Out Why

Wow that is depressing. 

okay but is that michelle’s fault for pushing for healtheir lunches or is it school districts’ faults for cutting corner by cutting calories but not making lunch any healthier?

let’s look into it.

Yes, thank you. Because yes she is pushing for a healthier lunch, but the schools still value football over feeding their students, which means that instead of providing enough healthy food to keep their students from starving, they are cutting down the amount of food available to fit within the caloric requirements … while then taking the money they saved to re-sod the football field for the third year in a row. Maybe new uniforms.

PREACH IT
