You’re probably not going to give that child up for adoption, which itself is a very emotionally serious things to do, although the people who propose adoption never talk about it that way — they make it seem like abortion is a big, emotional, terrible thing while adoption is win-win. You’re supposed to have this baby, carry it for nine months, take all the physical and emotional risks, and there often is a bonding thing that happens. Women who give up their children for adoption are years and years later talking about how painful it was, much more than women who have abortions. One of the central points I wanted to make in my book is that the way we talk about abortion shows tremendous disrespect to motherhood, because it says there’s nothing to being a mother — there’s nothing to childbirth, nothing to pregnancy, just give it up for adoption, you’ll manage.

The notes on this shit. Some are like ‘that’s cute, that’s thoughtful’ etc., some say ‘am I the only one seeing the blood?’ And then, THEN, there’s people like ‘lol eww that’s so disgusting’. And most of them are women. No, sorry, I’ll rephrase, silly little girls.
Sorry, are periods unnatural to you? Is a perfectly normal bodily function so alien to you that you have to publically shame others for it? This picture is meant to be a statement.
Sorry if the subject of period blood is too fucking taboo for you, kiddos. Women bleed, get over it.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

Two MSU basketball players raped a woman in the dorms then one admitted to it. Their only consequence was that they had to move out of the dorms. This picture is of me and one other woman holding up this banner during Midnight Madness. Two other brave souls had a banner on the other side for a while before some jerk started playing tug or war with them over it. This was taken before we got booed at by 10,000 people and police escorted from the stadium. 

How screwed up are people to boo at this? 

Let’s keep reposting this. Rapists should be charged.

how is sport more important than the lives of women? like honestly baffling
