❝Stonewall was colored folks, poor folks, transsexuals, femmes, butches… a little bit of everybody. But the narrative that gets sold to people is that it was all these ‘A-Gay’ white normative people. That’s not who riots. Sorry.❞

I need feminism because “Who hired a stripper” shouldn’t be the first thing said to me when I walk into a welding job.

women in trades are treated like such fucking shit. 

NO I’M STILL STUCK ON THIS WHY WOULD ANYONE SAY THIS TO A WOMAN HOLDING A BLOWTORCH

❝Since her death in 1979, the woman who discovered what the universe is made of has not so much as received a memorial plaque. Her newspaper obituaries do not mention her greatest discovery. […] Every high school student knows that Isaac Newton discovered gravity, that Charles Darwin discovered evolution, and that Albert Einstein discovered the relativity of time. But when it comes to the composition of our universe, the textbooks simply say that the most abundant atom in the universe is hydrogen. And no one ever wonders how we know.❞
-Jeremy Knowles, discussing the complete lack of recognition Cecilia Payne gets, even today, for her revolutionary discovery. (via thehellofitall)

❝Things like racism are institutionalized. You might not know any bigots. You feel like “well I don’t hate black people so I’m not a racist,” but you benefit from racism. Just by the merit, the color of your skin. The opportunities that you have, you’re privileged in ways that you might not even realize because you haven’t been deprived of certain things. We need to talk about these things in order for them to change.❞

People say “phase” like impermanence means insignificance. Show me a permanent state of the self.

Can we start, when teenage girls come out as bisexual, saying congratulations and then offering support and information instead of questioning them, laughing at them and saying they’re lying?

YES.

Stop policing young women’s sexuality and start supporting it.

I think you need someone to want you. Well… I do want you. So be brave and want me back.

I’d die for you. I love you. I love you so much it’s killing me.

Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles. 

You can watch the 1:00 video with Beyonce, Jane Lynch, Condeleeza Rice, and Jennifer Garner here, or visit the Ban Bossy website

My coworkers little girl is a victim of this. and it really is rough.

Acephobia in the LGBT+ Community from the documentary (A)sexuality. 

Just…wow..
People- we are ALL fighting prejudice. Let’s not add to it.

Yep. The rest of the Dan Savage quote:

“It looks like such a dodge from outside. I know from experience, and I know from giving people advice about their sex lives for thirteen years, a lot of people are deeply conflicted about their desires, and a lot of people are really conflicted about their sexual orientations, and for a lot of these people it’d be easier just to not have a sexual orientation. It’d be a great escape to say ‘oh, I’m not gay, I’m not a lesbian, I’m not bi, or my heterosexuality’s so disturbing to me because my kinks are this and this and this, that I’m just asexual, I’m NOTHING.’”

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.

Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.

You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.

As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”
