the fact that there have no leaked nudes in my dashboard proves that i’m following the right people
In the 1930s, men’s nipples were just as provocative, shameful and taboo as women’s are now, and men were protesting in much the same way. In 1930, four men went topless to Coney Island and were arrested. In 1935, a flash mob of topless men descended upon Atlantic City, 42 of whom were arrested. Men fought and they were heard, changing not only laws but social consciousness. And by 1936, men’s bare chests were accepted as the norm.
So why is it that 80 years later women can’t seem to achieve the same for their chests? Why can’t a mother proudly breastfeed her child in public without feeling sexualized? why is a 17-year-old girl being asked to leave her own prom because a group of fathers find her too provocative?
[…] I am not trying to argue for mandatory toplessness, or even bralessness. What I am arguing for is a woman’s right to choose how she represents her body — and to make that choice based on personal desire and not a fear of how people will react to her or how society will judge her. No woman should be made to feel ashamed of her body. Scout Willis, in XOJane, on Instagram’s nudity policy and why she recently strolled the NYC streets topless. Solid essay all around. I found this piece particularly interesting because I’d never heard about the men’s nipples thing. (via batmansymbol)
i am so FRUSTRATED right now. ;_;
Anonymous said: Why are you so angry about JLaw's nudes being leaked? I thought you didn't like her.
- i am angry because this is just another example of women being shamed for taking nudes instead of the douchebag who spreads them being shamed for violating someone’s privacy like that
- i am angry because nobody deserves this, regardless of how i feel about their personality
- i am angry because this is pure misogyny and shows how women aren’t respected in our culture
- i am angry because she did not consent to having those pics posted everywhere but they still were
- i am angry because on the VERY RARE occasion this happens to a male celeb he is not shamed but rather the perpetrator is and it’s forgotten quickly whereas this will haunt jennifer for years and years to come
- i am angry because this was a sex crime and people are treating it like a joke
- i am angry because she is being exploited/objectified and some gross dudebros are probably jacking off to those pics
- i am angry because people are CONGRATULATING the fucker who did such an atrocious thing to her instead of being appalled
listen i may not like her personally but the fact remains that as a human being she is entitled to body autonomy and to choose who sees her naked body and who doesn’t
So at work yesterday we only had pink spoons to hand out for the frozen yogurt and every male asked if we had a different color spoon because they did not like pink and it’s femininity and lemme tell u that this proves boys are weak and a fuckjng pink spoon proved that
tbh i believe this post is #authentic bc a lady freaked out at me for writing on her 15 y/o son’s ice cream cake w pink icing and have been yelled at for giving out pink straws lol
tbh this is actually a really believable post
lemme tell y’all
I work at build-a-bear and it is DISGUSTING how cissexist that store and its customers are
I’ve seen dads literally tear dresses/panties/pink clothing out of their sons’ hands and throw it back at the shelves because “you’re a boy and you don’t need that”
this post is 100% believeable
Imagine the #overlyhonestmethods posts from Carlos’s team of scientists.
"This paper is shorter than normal due to the primary researcher turning into a tree before she could finish it."
"Test subjects were selected randomly by loitering outside Big Rico’s and offering illicit bread crust for all participants."
"Experiment time intervals were carefully chosen so that Carlos would actually be on time for his date for once."
"Potential errors include time loss from that cancelled Wednesday, the fact that the local government legally forbade us from mentioning the source of the data, and the loss of a substantial amount of recorded notes that were replaced with dead silence and the smell of vanilla."
"Some results were altered to sound more normal so we don’t get our funding revoked."
