Remember IT IS NOT A WOMAN’S RESPONSIBILITY TO PREVENT RAPE. In the world we live in, however, women should be empowered with any tools in order to protect themselves. Source for more facts follow NowYouKno
i think the best but also saddest thing about this is that MEN created this product to protect women from MEN
The family business…
IS THAT ADAM IN THE CAGE
I bet John is a zero coke because that’s the number of fucks he gave about his children.
oh look, they’re all empty inside
WAS THAT NECESSARY
I am dead at Adam.
Also, Adam isn’t empty! Also, I like how Sams name is the same color as johns because he was always more like their dad but deans name is white with red around it because he always tried to be like their dad but never really was.
next on psychoanalyzing coke bottles
I think we all need to acknowledge this for a second because Adam made a really good point about this the other day and I haven’t gotten around to bitching about it until now. Everyone has been going on for MONTHS about how ridiculous wrecking ball is. How Miley is nude and posed provocatively and singing a pop-y song. Now, Panic! At The Disco has released a music video of Brendon Urie basically naked, posed provocatively, singing a pop-y song. No one says a god damned thing. Everyone is all hot-and-bothered over Brendon, but pissed at Miley, calling her a slut. (don’t get me wrong, I loved the music video, too. However, I find Miley just as sexy.)
I’m just saying, this is why I need feminism.
I would also like to point out the different meanings of the nudity in either video.
The Panic! At The Disco video is a song Called Girls/Girls/Boys. A song about a girl who is struggling with her sexual identity and [the narrator / singer] is calling her out by telling her he can see through her “having a boyfriend” rouse, because it’s obvious that she also has a girlfriend whom she keeps in secret to protect her “straight” appearance; for fear of judgement. It is also alluded to here that the singer / narrator has an unrequited love for the girl, but is obviously not the gender that she prefers. The nudity in this video appears to represent openness. The lack of secrets or anything to hide. He’s a male, in love with a female who prefers females and will never love him back; and there’s nothing he can do about it to change himself.
The Miley video is for Wrecking Ball. A much more self explanatory song about the raw, hurting, feelings after a break up with a long term relationship. Not any relationship, but, a real relationship with a real person that Miley had publicly just gone through. There was basically a 100% chance that her ex would see that video; and this is where the nudity comes in. Not something sexual, but vulnerability. The two most vulnerable states in the world are being nude (physical judgement, lack of protection) and expressing your emotions (emotional / mental judgement, letting down your guard). The nudity in Miley’s video represents her being completely vulnerable; much like she had been to let her ex into her life for such a long time.
Either way, gender removed from the topic; neither nudity in either video is a sexual nudity. The problem here isn’t just gender discrimination; it’s also oversexualization. If the nudity in the videos was not taken out of context and sexualized; neither of the artists involved would be patronized or glorified in any way other than a genuine critique.
This is why oversexualization is a problem.
MY GOD THAT ACCENT COMING OUT OF DANIEL RADCLIFFE
I’m stealing it.
WHAT THE FUCK
This is so calming for me I wanna stare at this forever hnnnng.
This is now my favorite post. Ever.
never forget to wash the butt.
TRY ON A SMALL IT’LL BE FUNNY OMFG
Keep away from fire especially when wearing
Ok so big text post didn’t go anywhere, so i’m making a photo post where i have a face, and I guess I’m gonna go more into detail about my situation is for those who don’t know me
Hi I’m Maia, I’m 20, I’m genderqueer, and I need help
This is really hard for me to write
So I fucked up last year at school financially
I didn’t choose enough credits (I needed one more course), government didn’t send me the full funds as it saw me as a part-time student, I wasn’t informed about this until the end of the year when it was too late
So I owe my school over $6000 from my own pocket and I need to pay it all back before I can start my third year of university
I have a job, I live at home, but my family’s financial state is no better than my own, in fact it may be worse. So I still have to buy my own food most of the time and since I can’t afford this, I go some days without eating much more than an apple or maybe one meal a day.
I am nowhere near being even close to paying back that money
and the debt goes up every month I don’t pay it in full, in a few months my entire paycheck that i sent to the school last month will be right back in there again
I know that living here is making it financially difficult for my parents and my little brother and sister, it’s another mouth to feed, it’s another person to support
I don’t want to do this to them and I want to go back to school
This is humiliating for me to write, I have lived in poverty my whole life, and it is draining and embarrassing
The text post I made got me a tiny bit of donations from wonderful wonderful friends, but I am nowhere close to what I need, I would be forever grateful to anyone who donates, please help.
just a reminder that though you guys have been amazing I wanna make sure this keeps getting spread around because my deadline is coming up soon and I just wanna make the debt fee be a little less for this month
