Anonymous asked: Can someone explain these men and women who claim to be feminists that bringing women to leadership role won't happen with fanzines, essays and quotes but by actively encouraging them to study business, economy and engineering ? It's fucking simple.

I don’t think the two are mutually exclusive—you can create fanzines and study business?

So, yeah.

Anonymous asked: I'm a 16 y/o female who recently stumbled across your blog and I've been reading through it. I've been crying almost the entire time, but I don't understand why. It's not you personally; the same thing has happened when I've viewed similar blogs. I feel so upset and hurt and this obscure dark, heavy feeling and I don't understand it. I don't even know why I'm sending you this, I guess I'm just hoping for answers.

I think if read even half of this stuff at your age I’d be crying too. It certainly still upsets me. You’re brave for looking into this now.

I don’t really have answers, but you’re not alone in navigating all of this, and certainly not alone in having a dark feeling. 

Also, I hope this doesn’t come off as condescending but I wish I could give you a hug. We’re all in this together.

"Murphy’s argument assumes porn is abusive, flagrantly exploitative and consistently violates actors’ boundaries behind the scenes. But that is not the case."

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah.

edgy.

Comedian Jamie Kilstein thinks we shouldn’t joke about violence against women. That view got him notably shunned from the comedy community; other famous comedians weighed in, called him names, it was a whole thing. As a result, he lost a TV deal, promotional gigs, and friends — all because he said rape jokes are bad. [Rest.]

Here’s to a week for the unconventional before and after photos, National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. For most of my life, I’ve been heavier, and consequently shamed and belittled for my weight.  When I started college, however, I weighed 103 pounds, was eating 400-600 calories a day, doing about 90 minutes of cardio daily, and most importantly, I was anorexic. I was 15 pounds underweight, but no one thought to say anything because they were too busy applauding me for my unnatural weight loss. This is me calling them out. This is my telling them they were wrong. This is me thanking my real life and tumblr friends for everything they have done to get me to the wonderful place I am today. So fuck you traditional pictures of “healthy”, I may be fat, but I beat my eating disorder.

Frances Glessner Lee (1878–1962), a New England socialite and heiress, dedicated her life to the advancement of forensic medicine and scientific crime detection. In 1943 she was appointed captain in the New Hampshire State Police, the first woman in the US to hold such a position. Around the same time, she began work on a series of miniature crime-scene dioramas for student analysis, allowing Mrs. Lee to combine her lifelong love of dolls and dollhouses with her passion for forensic medicine.
