Today one of my friends was dress coded for her bra strap showing and so she wrote on the gym shirt that they gave her. It reads “Dress Code: promotes the objectification and sexualization of young bodies, blames the wearer for the onlooker’s perceptions/actions, perpetuates rape culture, and is bullshit” On the back she wrote “You can’t shame me for something I’m not ashamed for”. It was really cool seeing all of the people’s reactions who saw it and I thought what she did was pretty cool.

YES YOUNG WOMEN STANDING UP FOR THEMSELVES

ENDLESS APPLAUSE

Or you shouldn’t dress a certain way AT YOUR FUCKING SCHOOL.

Two brides have become two of the most kickass women in the world by marrying to protest against homophobia in Russia.

Alina Davis, a 23-year-old trans woman, and Allison Brooks, her 19-year-old partner, donned matching white floor-length bridal gowns and married at a civil registry office earlier this month.

As Davis is still legally regarded as male, the office had no choice but to hand them a marriage certificate.

The couple said officials chided them, and appeared to be violent.

‘She called us the shame of the family and said we need medical treatment … I was afraid my pussycat [an affectionate pet name in Russian] would beat the fuck out of her,’ Davis said on her VK page.

But the couple were allowed to sign the papers, meaning a gay couple in Russia are legally recognized as married – even if it’s through a loophole.

‘This is an important precedent for Russia,’ Davis said.

Russia banned same-sex marriage and outlawed ‘gay propaganda’ in 2013.

A Voice For Men (MRA website) founder Paul Elam would rather see a male rapist walk the street freely than charged for his crime.

He admits that he would never convict a rapist, even one who is unequivocally guilty.  He claims it’s because the “system is rigged” (ironically, it is, but not in favor of the victim), but it’s obvious that he would really do this because he doesn’t think rape should be a crime.

But MRAs are more about helping men with legitimate problems than oppressing women at every opportunity, right? Get the fuck away from me right now if you don’t think the MRM is a hate movement.

This is disgusting and deplorable.

ugh

TW Rape
A collection of just SOME of the hateful comments left on a video report of the #jadapose rape case. For any one who thinks rape apology, victim blaming and rapid victim mistrust aren’t still thriving within our society. I should mention there were also A tonne of people speaking up for and defending Jada, however, there shouldn’t be a need to defend a victim from rape apologists, because that mentality should NOT exist. 

Potential/ actual but never caught rapist alert

this is rape culture, and it has got to stop.  stay strong jada.

This is so incredibly disgusting. My heart breaks for this girl. 

I am ashamed.
Black girls must be protected at all cost. By any means necessary.

So people were distributing child porn and nobody is in jail right now?

Protect this girl. And get the perpetrators thrown under the jail.

This situation is so fucked.

And people still think there isn’t a war on women…

For Catholics who spend their Saturdays standing outside abortion clinics, holding graphic or condescending signs and “fetus” rosaries, chanting the Our Father and singing hymns, I want you to think long and hard about how you choose to spend your Saturdays. I want you to think about if this is what the Lord truly called you to do. Because when I stand outside abortion clinics, as I did yesterday in Boston, I do not see the Lord in those saying the rosary while holding hand-drawn signs of “aborted fetuses.” I see zealous, prideful people with little humility and grace. I see selfish, sheltered people more concerned with their personal satisfaction than the feelings and rights and lives of others. I do not see Jesus, even as you go through the Our Father’s and Hail Mary’s and Glory Be’s.

This is not about getting your point across. I think you have already made your point loud and clear. The Catholic Church believes “life begins at conception” and you honor that. Still, you believe that the longer you wait outside abortion clinics each Saturday, the more women you will “save.” 

But you will not save them. These women (and trans men and those who don’t identify as women) do not need your saving. They need to access a clinic safely. They need to know they will be OK with whatever choice they choose. They do not need fear. They do not need stress. They do not need condemnation from people doing God’s misguided work.

For Catholics who spend their Saturdays outside abortion clinics, I want you to think long and hard whether your services would be better elsewhere. Why not go to a homeless shelter or domestic violence shelter instead? Why not donate baby clothes and diapers and food to new mothers who can’t afford motherhood? Why not spread God’s name through peaceful and dutiful work? 

And if you would like to say the rosary for the unborn, why not say it in a church? Light a candle and ask Mother Mary to give women considering abortion strength. But don’t forget — there are many women who pray to Mary to give them strength for their abortions. And the Blessed Mother does. 

For Catholics who spend their Saturdays outside abortion clinics, I have a hard time believing Jesus is standing with you. If Jesus were here on Earth in his earthly form today, there’s a much greater chance that he would be wearing a clinic escort vest, helping women inside and protecting them from those throwing stones.
