If you think this isn’t the damn truth you should know that a few years back, my campus newspaper ran an article that said fat women should be grateful for rape because it’s the only way they’ll ever feel worthy of a man’s attention.
I shit you not.
yeah, I’ve been told on multiple occasions during casual conversations that I’m not pretty/skinny enough to be raped, so that’s a thing
this disgusts the core of my being.
Men want us to kiss them with beards, suck their dicks and kiss their balls with pubes, hug them with hairy arm pits, intwine our legs with hairy thighs, but if women have one hair on our body that isn’t on our head it’s disgusting
"date a girl who reads!!", "brainy is the new sexy!", "bigger books are better than bigger boobs!"
oh shut the fuck up
date a person who makes you smile, who makes you snort soda out of your nose and still thinks your laugh is cute
not based on how many john green novels they’ve read or episodes of sherlock they’ve watched you petty little fucks
Before I had tumblr I had no idea there were any sexualities other than heterosexual and homosexual. I never considered gender inequalities still existed.
That doesn’t mean I was purposely trying to discriminate or upset people.
There is a difference between being just ignorant of something and purposefully discriminating.
Give someone a chance to learn and be enlightened before you slam them as rude, horrible people
The rarest of the rare: a men’s magazine advocating hairy armpits on women.
We need more of this. Personally, I shave, but that’s just cause I don’t like the feeling of deodorant on hair.
Sometimes I’ll forget to, for a day or two, and I’ll have the teensiest amount of stubble. For some reason, I’ll feel really insecure about it.
Because society teaches us that we should.
I thought I was going to rage but then it was awesome
This is wonderful.
I personally do not shave and have seen many harsh reactions, comments and discrimination for it, even had people tell me it was unnatural ( as ironic as that is). It is rare that you see magazines really come out and say that it is alright for a woman to have body hair, we have been so conditioned to view it as this gross “un-feminine ” thing when it is simply a personal choice…. shaving or not, you can still be feminine with body hair. The fact that women feel vulnerable and insecure when they have a small bit of body hair or skip a day of shaving is ridiculous, we should be comfortable with ourselves no matter what, and our community/friends/family should support our choices.
We have been so conditioned to try and alter/shove ourselves into this small un-realistic box of “beauty” that we are loosing the true beauty of ourselves and striving for the beauty of others perceptions.
And if you want to be hairy, dammit, be hairy.

I made a political cartoon for English class about issues in school
It focuses on how teens are expected to make career defining choices with barely any experience, and also how parents often take so much authority that their child’s decision is not actually their own
If this gets some notes then I’ll make a colored version
thank fucking you. this defines me a few years ago really accurately
