promoting body positivity for larger girls:
doing so by throwing skinny girls under the bus, calling thinner girls “fake”, or insisting that being bigger is “what men really want” (implying that any female body type is only good if it has male approval):
My brother donated blood in my place today, since I cannot donate.
Any gay or bisexual man that has had intimate contact with another man since 1977 is BANNED from donating blood, presumably due to the fear of blood-borne illnesses that are often falsely associated with the LGBT+ community.
Any and all blood donated is tested and screened thoroughly, so even if this ban held merit, it would serve no purpose.
The ban on gay blood is discriminatory and unnecessary.
End the stigma.
Ask the White House to lift this harmful ban by signing THIS PETITION.

If you took a grown man who was violently struggling and tied him down to a table so that you could cut off a part of his penis without his consent, you would be a criminal.
You do this same thing to a newborn, and no one bats and eye.
"Well, an infant can’t say no"
But an infant also cannot say yes, and the absence of a yes is an absolute NO.
Medusa and her blind boyfriend go out on their first date and he panics because he cant tell her she looks pretty so he says something really stupid like “I REALLY like snakes”
This is so fucking cute

Had a sudden urge to draw this.

new meme: adam sandler disappears into thin air, jennifer aniston is grief stricken
whenever i see a post about someone wondering how an asexual and a sexual can be in a healthy relationship there’s always someone being applauded for saying well asexuals can have sex too or just because someone’s asexual doesn’t mean they won’t have sex but i have never, not once, EVER seen someone say well hey, some sexuals don’t have sex. you can have a full relationship without sex. just throwing it out there
“And like it or not, more and more women are gamers, just like you and I. So instead of completely dismissing their concerns, maybe, just maybe, take a little more time to listen to what they feel, why they feel they’ve been mostly marginalized in games.
I look forward to games that take more time building their female personalities, rather than just using them as tools or helpers that throw you things, and you should too. Because frankly, that’s gonna lead to far more interesting stories, opportunities and new experiences.
And honestly, guys, we’re always gonna have our stripper mini-games and our princess-savers, so why not campaign alongside them to see more mature games rise for everyone else as well?”
Video game reviewer Angry Joe giving his rant about the response to Anita Sarkeesian’s videos discussing female tropes in video games. [ x ]
Right on the fucking ball!
"So take a breather and realise it’s perfectly fine for women to ask questions - to criticise pointless and exploitative material, and to look forward to more games that elevate their gender, women, to more than goals or objects to be won or saved, and into legitimate heroes in their own right.
And, after all that, if you still don’t get it, bro, and you think she should die and every feminist with her - it’s because, number one, you’re a fucking idiot. Number two, you couldn’t give a shit about anyone but yourself. And, number three, outside your mother, you’ve never had to actually care about what other women think or feel.”
I found his little speech to be incredibly motivating and well spoken. I really like and respect the man, so this made me like him and respect him even more.
Petition to ban old men from writing books just because they don’t know how to use an iPhone
Petition to have the youth in this country to actually educate themselves instead of spitting out some bullshit they read on some shitty post on facebook that’s untrue, and continues to spread like wildfire.
In 2012, young adults have set the record of completing both high school and college and are on course to become the most educated generation in America history. Maybe you should follow the example of ‘the youth in this country’ and do the same.
And research suggests that all the “damn texting” we do is leading us to be more social and creating stronger bonds with more ppl so
"you can communicate with people across the world instantly?? this generation is terrible!!"
"Yes, but that’s still a minority! If more women played video games, there would be more reason to have female protagonists!"
