Why I need feminism in six easy screenshots.
I literally had to go to google and try all of these because I couldnt quite believe it. This is terrible.
It’s true this is what really comes up! Why?!? Is this what people really think?
sometimes I realize there are people on my dash heavily burdened with horrible things
and I just desperately hope that you’ll be okay, you’ll find the strength to continue and do the right thing for yourself, you’ll make it through and be happy
all of you
So all the time on this website I see how it’s acceptable to post pictures in bikinis so it should be acceptable to post pictures in bras. My logic is if it’s acceptable for skinny guys to parade around in underwear, fat guys should be able to too.
But that’s not what this post is about. This is about my 2nd grade teacher, who told me it “wouldn’t be a surprise if I got diabetes”. This is about the flag football coach who made me run stairs because I was “too fat to run with the other kids.” This is about the girls who asked me why I wore Hollister when it was obvious they were too tight on my stomach. This is about my dad, who bought me a year long gym membership for Christmas when I asked for a goddamn Playstation.
More than that, goddammit this is about you. This is about you and everyone else who has ever hated your body. Because I’m telling you you are fucking beautiful. You, right now, are fucking majestic. Love yourself. Love your thunder thighs, even if they make you want to wear long shorts. Love your chicken legs, even if everyone says you look emaciated. Love your pimples, they’re fucking natural. Love your crooked teeth, because a crooked smile is the best smile.
This post isn’t about forcing you to look at me half-naked (though I know I’m quite the sight.) It’s about being body fucking positive, no matter who you are. One day someone’s going to plow you on a coffee table (or you’re gonna plow them idk) and they’re not gonna say “You really need to exercise.” They’re going to say “Again please.

This is a list I made for YALSA’s The Hub on the wide range of YA literature featuring LGBTQ characters. See the full post and a downloadable pdf here.
HOLY CRAP THIS IS A BADASS ROUNDUP
On the left we have the lyrics from Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines. On the right we rape survivors participating in Project Unbreakable, showing the various things that were said to them by their rapist.
i think this is the most powerful photoset i’ve ever seen on tumblr.
