stfusexists: TW: Discussion of rape culture, sexual assault, Steubenville As anyone who follows me knows, I’ve been blogging a lot about Steubenville since the verdict came down. The verdict itself was a victory, some semblance of justice for the girl who was so horribly betrayed and abused. But along with that victory came another onslaught of injustices: CNN’s outpouring of sympathy for the...
lagertha-lodbrok: Here’s the fucking thing I’ve heard/seen several people mention how the Steubenville case should remind us all to speak to our daughters about parties and drinking. Thing is, we already fucking do that. We’ve been doing it. You think I won’t be a paranoid mom about this shit with my daughter? You think every time she goes out to a party I won’t ask the universe to protect...

sillysocialjustice: 99% of rapes are committed by men. Whenever I see someone go for the “but women rape people too!” false equivalency it makes me want to throw a large object out the window. Yes, women can and do rape. But the sheer numbers do not lie. Men rape out of proportion to the general population and women are raped out of proportion to the general population. This does not mean...
eluhfonts: You can argue as much as you want about when life starts and whether it is in or out of the womb, but I will tell you one thing: the body of a woman who had a back alley abortion and died because of the lack of regulations and health codes is the farthest thing from life that you can imagine.

stfusexists: faineemae: queenofadodi: Men had no problem violating women’s bodies while they had on corsets, petticoats and farthingales, so what the fuck makes you think a short skirt has anything to do with it? Men also have no problem violating women’s bodies while they wear a niqab, hijab and burqa, some of the most covered form of clothing. So basically, what the fuck makes you think...

Yes, It’s Okay to Not Wear a Bra. →
themetalspoon: Here’s a random fact: Did you know there is actually no medical reason to wear a bra? That’s right. None. Contrary to popular belief, bras don’t prevent sagging or anything else. I know it probably seems a bit strange for me to be saying this. After all, I am a lingerie blogger so I should be Team Bra 24/7, right? But I’ve been thinking about the whole bra/no-bra thing for...

apsies: Obama’s Affordable Care Act does not pay for abortions. In Massachusetts, Romney’s health care law does. Obama favors, and included in the Affordable Care Act, $250 million of support for vulnerable pregnant women and alternatives to abortion. This support will make abortions much less likely, since most abortions are economic. Romney, on the other hand, has endorsed Wisconsin...
