every woman on tumblr should have this on their dash
And every man
Look how nobody’s yelling or arguing or making things into a competition. Look how this is to straight up educate people through a different perspective. Look how effective that makes the message.
b-luesheep: ivvlo: grrl-riott: fernjpg: wearethefourthwave: "THIS PICTURE WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT I STILL NEED FEMINISM AND I’M GOING TO REALLY, REALLY TELL YOU WHY": -Because I got called a whore for wearing a short plaid skirt when I was 10 -and because when Nujood Ali from Yemen was 10 she got divorced -Because black girls’ names became my classmates’ favorite “joke” when I was 11 -and because when an 11-year-old girl in Texas was raped by 18 men the New York Times wrote of how the girl “dressed older than her age” -Because I started counting calories when I was 14 -and because when Malala Yousafzai was 14 she was shot in the head for trying to go to school -Because I heard a boy greet a girl with “hey slut” today at age 16 -and because when a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio was filmed being raped by two boys at a party while unconscious the CNN reporters talked about how tragic it was because the rapists had such bright futures as athletes -Because I will have to watch my drink at all bars and parties when I am 22 -and because when CeCe McDonald was 22 she was sentenced to 41 months in prison for defending herself against a man who screamed transphobic, racist insults at her and then slashed her face with a bottle -Because no matter what age I am the biggest threat to men will still be heart disease, and the biggest threat to women will still be men. -Because it is not just about me, because it is not just about anger, because it is not just a JOKE, because it is not just about “hating men,” because it is not just about girls with vaginas, because it is not just about ending “slut”, because it is not just about white straight girls in Rookie magazine, because it is not just about writing on backs, because it is not just about the fact that gay men are “fags” but lesbians are “hot,” because it is not just about pictures of thin white girls being the only google image results for the search phrase “beautiful women”, because it is not just about writing signs, because it is not just about what she was wearing or how many times she said yes before she changed her answer to no, because misogyny is not just about one thing and feminism is not just about one thing and it is not just “a trend” and it will not “happen” in just one way. -And because yes. It is about equality for EVERYONE, but first and foremost it needs to be about equality for girls, because they are not treated equally to men, in every single sense, and you are not going to take feminism away from me and call me bossy/hostile/aggressive and make this about yourself or make it into a joke, because truth be told, I’m not joking and I’m tired of explaining. If you want to call yourself a feminist, you work hard to spread feminism, you do not turn this into a contest of whose struggle is greater and constantly demand to know what you can get out of feminism personally. Feminism is not just about you, or me, it is about everyone. If you’re male and you’re tired of men being stereotyped as hyper-masculine, soulless, sexist, inherent leader-tyrant creatures, then go out and prove the patriarchy wrong and fight for girls, like someone with a soul who believes in equality would. Then, yes, feminism will be about everyone. -Sylvie (an amazing grrrl godess) Photo taken by Caroline http://c-h-0-w.tumblr.com/ i feel the strong urge to print this out and hand out copies to everyone i meet to spread the word on feminism and rape culture bc i couldnt word it this well without becoming overly angry and giving up This is v important Everyone should read this I love this and the person(s) who created this

I made a thing about stretching! Some of the images are hard to see, but if you click on them they should produce a larger image!

Bringing this back because of #8.
All of you, sitting around on your laptop. Take 5 minutes and stretch your shoulders, neck, lower back, ad maybe hammies too. You have 5 mins to take care of you.
I know a lot of you are starting school again or another part of your life where stress levels are rising. Remember to take time out of your day to stretch, or even just meditate. While you study or do homework at the computer, take breaks- at least every hour but ever 15 minutes is even better. Stretch, and focus far away. It’ll help with productivity, attention, burn out, and even eye heath (since you will be giving your eyes a break from the strain).
Please know that if you date me, I am a very touchy person. I will like to pet your head and hold your hand, rub your shoulders or hug you a lot. Simply put, to physically feel you in some way is very comforting to me and I can’t really apologize for it, it just feels natural to me and makes me happy.
Health and fitness comes in all shapes and sizes. Every single one of these athletes is a certified bad-ass.
I’ve posted this before but it’s worth reblogging!
I love this post so much
