"yeah but men are over-sexualized too"
oh my gosh you are totally right. Men aren’t over-sexualized at all. Those guys that you see in front of stores such as hollister, abercrombie and fitch, etc. and the ones you see in underwear commercials they obviously aren’t being sexualized because only a woman’s body can be sexualized.
Seriously tired of this shit. Don’t give me the whole speech about only women being sexualized because it’s bullshit.
there’s no wrong way to have a body. (at University of North Texas)
"LOSE THE WAIT! STOP BODY SHAME NOW!"
I know it is on the wave to be transparent, accepting yourself and everything around you, but damn, girl- you are obese and if people with anorexia/bulimia are seen as having a serious disease here is a surprise for everyone else: obesity is also a disease! And I am not saying that being obese is bad, I am saying that it should not be made as something worth having.. Should I start mentioning all the diseases waiting for this girl? The ones she doesnt have yet..
Btw, everyone is different and I definitely find this picture over-emphasized.
feel free to shut the fuck up forever
how do you sound? you, theartofsayingno, are a goddamn disease. i’m not saying that being you is bad! i’m just saying that you’re not someone worth being.
Oh my god wow
"I’m not saying obese is bad, I just-"
Why in the fuck would you think anything you’re about to say would be okay
Unless you are this person’s doctor I suggest you zip your goddamn lip feel me -c

If you’re white, don’t call yourself an “intersectional feminist” and don’t use “intersectionality” for white people
I recently learned from Black female bloggers that we are appropriating this word. A Black feminist named Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw came up with the term intersectionality to talk about how race and gender intersect for women of color. It was never intended for white women to use to describe our own feminism or an allegiance with woc—or, worse yet, intersecting oppressions for white people.
We can be anti-racist, we can be allies, we can be social justice bloggers, but we are not “intersectional.” We don’t experience the intersection of race and gender.
The thing is Crenshaw never gets credit for coining this term and white feminists ignore the fact a Black woman invented it to describe her experience as a Black woman, and for other women of color to use. We as white feminists often use this term without ever engaging with Black womanists and Black feminists or other feminists of color, which constantly sidelining their issues, and being racist ourselves or not checking our privilege. Also, I’ve seen white women go to a desi woman’s ask box, when she was talking about racist white feminists in her grad program and tell her, “oh it’s too bad there are no intersectional feminists in your school!” And she had to tell them, “nope they call themselves intersectional feminists, but they are still racist and throw woc under the bus.”
Some of us like to think if we call ourselves “intersectional” than we’re not like ~THOSE~ white feminists those ~non-intersectional~ white feminists, but that’s not true. We are white feminists—we have white female privilege. We benefit just as much from white supremacy as anyone else and we are just as able to be racist and exclude, talk over, invalidate or ignore woc.
I used to use this term for myself and I used to use this term to describe “intersections” of my oppressions. But this isn’t right. That’s not how the term was intended. And us white people steal too much shit from POC—especially women of color—ESPECIALLY Black women.
So let’s stop appropriating this term and give it back to the women who it was made for—women of color.
also important in the world of academia/gender and womens studies to be accountable to. especially for me as a white trans boy
Whoa, for real? Being Latin@, is this inappropriate for me to use, or is this a term for woc in general? I want to be crystal clear on this, because if I need to remove this word from my vocab then I want to know. -C
Members of Congress are living off food stamps for a week to protest Republican cuts. It’s a challenge for them, but GOP cuts would hurt millions of everyday Americans.
Why does this not have more publicity. This needs it!
Signal boosting this A) because it deserves to be seen by more people, and b) because I appreciate some members of Congress are actually willing to see what it’s like living on food stamps in order to make their point about how horrifying cutting food stamps would be.
News flash, regressives: people on food stamps do not load up on Snickers bars and filet mignon. They’re limited in what they can buy, and oftentimes, it’s not enough to get by on. Go on thinking these are entitlements that let minorities live lives of luxury, comfortable in the knowledge that you’ll never go hungry.
You privileged, elitist pricks.
READ THIS, let it make love to your eyes!
Also still disgusting people who need and/or use food stamps are silenced and erased. And these people still don’t have to LIVE with this aide.
Annnnnnnd after a week they’re gonna go back to their outrageously lavish lifestyles and honestly this is little more than a publicity stunt, to me. -C
