Angie is a therapy dog who comes into the library and lets kids read to her so that kids who are struggling with reading can gain confidence. Every time I’ve seen her in the library she’s always wagging her tail for the kids and is very attentive.

Hehe equality right?

Do you not understand the purpose of this, or why the prices are what they are? Does this need to be explained to you?

Oh yea right, the famous “wage gap” between men and women that has been debunked tons of times! That sure is the right argument to fight sexism with!

Not debunked, misrepresented, as it is a complicated issue. It’s honestly more accurate to call it a PAY gap than a WAGE gap, since there are a myriad of factors at play here. Women DO, on average, make less money than men. That is indisputable, and the margins widen when you include factors of race, disability, and sexuality. 
Here’s a good starter resource on it. 
IF you would like some more in depth reading:
This one is from Stanford about the Gender Pay Gap
This is a New York Times article looking at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s report on the topic.
This one is from the International Trade Union Confederation 
This one is from Oxford, titled Up the Down Staircase: Women’s Upward Mobility and the Wage Penalty for Occupational Feminization
You can also look at the US Census’s look at the Pay Gap
Or the Institute for Women’s Policy Research
Even the United States Government Accountability Office has some information on it.
So yes, the bake sale above is a pretty simplistic little stunt about a complicated economic and social issue. But the fact that it pisses people off sort of makes its point for it. 

Excellent primary sources for those concerned about sex based oppression/ how men continually benefit from female subjugation also I would really like one of those Vegan cupcakes

tweetin’ some thoughts tonight

I love Ambers blog dearly but as a larger girl it’s hard to see things like this because I’ve watched as she’s lost weight though her blogs progression and whether it be related or not, it’s hard not to assume that the self confidence stems from being at a more socially acceptable weight. I’m probably looking too hard into it and it’s late and I’m cranky but this made me feel more sad rather than uplifted.

The importance of this post should not be diminished by how large or small you think I am.I’ve kept the same general weight since this blog has gotten popular.Regardless, my self esteem, as stated in these tweets, is not defined by my weight.

it genuinely baffles me that men don’t want women in positions of power because “they’re slaves to their hormones/emotions” and yet one of the first lines of defence when it comes to rape cases tends to be “it’s hardly his fault look at what she was wearing how could we expect him to control himself

Gee, it’s almost as if misogyny isn’t based in logic.

Timing. 

hey, baby’s gotta eat
black mommy excellence

I don’t support breast feeding in public places. Sorry not sorry. I just think there is a time and place for everything.

the time is when the baby is hungry
and the place is where the mother is able to feed the baby
everyone is always critiquing black motherhood and here we have a black woman not only graduating but giving her baby the nourishment it needs 
i think there’s a time and place for your negativity
and it’s not now and it’s not on this picture

BOOM

people don’t realize that when they say parents shouldn’t breast feed in public they’re really saying “my discomfort and objectification of breasts is more important than your child’s health and survival.” all you fuckers who say this shit should be charged with neglect. you can’t forbid people from feeding their children just cause boobs give weak dudes boners.



Badass!

It may not look like it but, you are looking at a girl who weighs 320 pounds. I took this nude picture because I felt fucking gorgeous. 
My name is CT and I live in Texas. I have started my weight loss journey once again. I am not losing weight to be part of society’s mold to what is beautiful but because I want to be healthy.
I love the body positivity movement and I am so glad that so many women are part of it. Although I am trying to lose weight, I feel as though body positivity it part of the process.

im a bad person who thinks bad thoughts like ‘ew what is that girl wearing’ and then remember that im supposed to be positive about all things and then think ‘no she can wear what she wants, fuck what other people say damn girl u look fabulous’ and im just a teeny bit hypocritical tbh

I was always taught by my mother, That the first thought that goes through your mind is what you have been conditioned to think. What you think next defines who you are.

This is why it pisses me off when people (recently: Joan Rivers) say something incredibly offensive and then say “I’m just saying what everyone is thinking”. Because yeah, maybe we are thinking it but maybe we chose not to say it because we realized how shitty such a thought was and even though it involuntarily sprung into our mind, we self-correct and decide to NEVER throw it out there into the world. Lord knows I do.

tears in my eyes; solidarity arising from such horrible situations is bittersweet.
