At age 16 while waiting for the bus in India, Laxmi had acid thrown in her face by her friend’s 32 year-old brother because she refused his sexual advances. Acid attacks are a all too common around the world and Laxmi has been courageous in her public action to end them. She’s been on national television, gotten 27,000 signatures together for a petition and even brought her cause to the Indian Supreme Court. We can’t think of anyone more deserving of the 2014 International Women of Courage Award, see the full list of 10 inspirational women here. Via jezebelcom
Female privilege is getting to claim a headache to avoid sex.
Female oppression is having to claim physical illness to avoid sex because men won’t take a simple fucking “no” for an answer.
Female oppression is men being so entitled that they think being denied sex is oppressive.
CAUGHT ON TAPE: LEVITATING GIRL
A guy in Russia was strolling through the woods, when he sees a little girl in red just hovering in the middle of the air. He gasps out loud, and the two spot him. The little girl descends down, and the pair run away.
What the hell?
What the actual fuck
that’s what we’re all asking
The mothership was calling her back
^^^^YOU JUST MADE MY POST 1000X BETTER
because people are still asking that question
because women are payed less than men in approximately 99% of professions
because chris brown can still have a career after assaulting rihanna but miley cyrus takes her clothes off and there’s a huge scandal
because of this:
because currently it is estimated ten million more girls are out of education than boys (x)
because we’re expected to be mature but hairless like a child, in control but not bossy, sexy but not slutty and definitely not a prude, intelligent but not opinionated, independent but reliant on men, natural but look like the girl in the magazine etc etc
because being called a girl, a pussy or a bitch is an insult
because when i told my mum i refused to get anything less than a’s in my exams she told me it wasn’t ladylike to be so cocky
because my brother and 90% of my male friends think girls who wear revealing clothing are asking for rape
because every person who identifies as female should be allowed to choose if they want to get married, have kids, have a career, go to uni etc etc without expectations
because tampons and sanitary pads are stupidly expensive
because some people reading this will have flinched at the fact i just said ‘tampon’
because there are men out there whose job it is to make young girls feel like absolute shit about themselves just so they can sell the next best beauty product
because female masturbation isn’t considered normal whilst men can talk about their own penises for hours on end
because feminists are still seen as crazy lesbians who dont shave and some still feel like they have to defend themselves by claiming theyre not any of those things when in fact if i want to be a passionate lady who likes other ladies and cant be bothered to shave my legs every twenty minutes then thats my choice and if i want to be someone who wears make up and shaves and goes out partying then thats my choice and if i want to be a combination of the two or anything in between then thats. my. choice.
because i believe anyone who identifies as female is fucking badass and deserves the same rights as every privileged stuck up old white man sitting around and making laws about our bodies
because how can you not be
there should be an award for the people who
- finish a whole tube of chap stick without losing it
- finish the shampoo and conditioner at the same time
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
I know the voices dying with a dying fall
Beneath the music from a farther room.
So how should I presume?

i just want a boy who touches me distractedly
like sitting watching a movie and he just kinds of drags his fingers over your skin while watching and he doesn’t have a motive he’s not trying to tickle you or be sexual with you he’s just touching your skin and feeling the shape of your bones under that skin like it’s physically comforting for him to know that you’re there right under his fingertips
oh fuck i didnt know girls liked when i did this
if your boyfriend doesn’t touch your butt all the time is he even your boyfriend
they better play corbin bleu’s “push it to the limit” when i’m in the delivery room or else i am not giving birth to that child
"suck my dick"
"nah sorry i have a shrimp allergy"
