Anonymous asked: anytime i call out my friend's sexism, he responds by telling me that i am really the sexist because i look at porn and therefore i am objectifying women. thoughts?
Ugh, bullshit. Sure, some porn does objectify women but a lot of it doesn’t. I watch porn, but not porn that is disgusting and makes women looks like objects.

I know I haven’t written about homosexual sex and all my posts seem to be heterosexual. I have such a hard time writing about it because I am a straight women who has never had any experience with other women. I know my posts have been a bit geared towards one sexuality and for that, I apologize.
I promise that from now on my posts will be for everyone, not just straight feminists.
Bare with me.

Anonymous asked: Please don't take this the wrong way, but woudl you ever personally get an abortion?
Hmm… That is a hard question to answer when you’ve never been pregnant. It would depend on the circumstances but I’m not sure I could, no. Again, you can never say for sure until you’re put in the position. BUT I will say, you don’t have to be willing to get an abortion to be pro-choice.

I’ve been a supporter since I was 16. I was in a long term relationship and, though my mom always told me horrid things about it, I was ready to get on birth control. I went in and within an hour, I was confidently on birth control. A few months later my friend got pregnant. Her boyfriend left and her mother gave her two options: Get an abortion or get out. Planned Parenthood gave her an affordable abortion and never once judged her. When I was 18 and unemployed, they gave me STD testing, STI testing, and a pap smear for free.
I still go to Planned Parenthood for birth control and walk around sporting my bright pink “I Stand With Planned Parenthood” shirt. You wouldn’t believe the nasty looks I get and the things some people say to me, “You do know that the only thing Planned Parenthood does is perform abortions, right?” and I say “I do know OF that popular misconception, but I have gone to Planned Parenthood for several things and never once an abortion.”
So why do people hate Planned Parenthood so much? Pure ignorance. When a women says something awful about Planned Parenthood I just want to scream “Do you know what they’ve done for your gender!? Do you know what they do for your daughter? For your son?” right in their face. Some young pregnant girls cannot handle motherhood and WILL get an abortion. Abortions should be done in a clean doctors office, not in a bathroom with a hanger or knitting needle.
Sex should be done safe, always, and Planned Parenthood is making that possible for teens who can’t talk to their parents, and whose parents don’t support them getting on birth control, and who would be outraged if they found out their daughter or son needed testing. I stand with Planned Parenthood.

Let me paint a picture for you: Glowing man, sexy heavy breathing, moving with you. Sounds like a great time, eh? Of course! We all want a man that contributes AND cooperates. Feminists are the kind of women that know what they want, especially in bed, so it’s disgustingly noticeable when we don’t get it.
Second picture: Sweaty guy, panting, repetitive thrusting. It’s boring, it’s not good, and it’s just plain boring. You sit there wondering why he’s taking so damn long, even though it’s all about him. Sound familiar? All too familiar to me. I need a man I can work with.
Ever had a shitty lover? Ever said anything?

Side-by-Side Comparison of Average-Sized Woman with a Supermodel Will Blow Out Your Mindhole. via Pajiba
Striking, isn’t it? Here are the statistics that accompany the photospread in Plus Model magazine (via Fashionista):
- Twenty years ago the average fashion model weighed 8% less than the average woman. Today, she weighs 23% less.
- Ten years ago plus-size models averaged between size 12 and 18. Today the need for size diversity within the plus-size modeling industry continues to be questioned. The majority of plus-size models on agency boards are between a size 6 and 14, while the customers continue to express their dissatisfaction.
- Most runway models meet the Body Mass Index physical criteria for Anorexia.
- 50% of women wear a size 14 or larger, but most standard clothing outlets cater to sizes 14 or smaller.
