Beyoncé, Jay Z and Blue Ivy at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards
want this moment burned on my eyelids
So many girls saw this. Bless.
All hail the queen.
Let this sink in. She declared herself a feminist in front of a bunch of white women who decided they werent feminists like katy perry and then her husband and child, the things feminists evidently don’t have, wete cheering on and gave her an award
Can we just stop with the bullshit of defining feminists by the people in their lives?
Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902) was a women’s rights activist who had this to say about abortion: http://ift.tt/1sZmvCb
Noooo. She had that to say about CHILDREN. She had this to say about abortion: ”What the fuck?? 77% of pro-life leaders are MEN? Pro-life bitchez better step up and open your fucking mouths. I don’t care what side you’re on. Don’t let some religious male asswipe speak for you. Jesus fucking Christ.”
Ah, yet another sexist cis man shows that he completely lacks the basic skill of comparison.
Before we have a country with free tampons, let’s have one with free soap. Tampons are useful to 50% percent of the population, soap is useful to 100% of the population. Priorities, feminists.
Yes and food should be free, too. This is not an astonishing concept to me. It’s why I’m fucking communist.
But you should really consider that it takes one second for a period to create biohazard while it takes much longer for a person not bathing would.
“Yes and food should be free, too. This is not an astonishing concept to me. It’s why I’m fucking communist.”
Fair enough. If you ever move to a communist country I’m sure not working and corruption are not going to be astonishing concepts either.
*shotguntactic inches into his screen.* “Will she take the bait?”
Strawman. Bait? I don’t mind having the last word if you’re willing to give it away. I don’t mind discussing either, but two are required for a tango, so the choice is on you. I actually dislike discussing politics, I just happen to find communism fairly ridiculous, I find feminism a more interesting topic.
*shotguntactic casts another line*
*shotguntactic tips his fedora as he slays a teenage girl on the internet with ~*logic*~*
How about we have a national holiday where we don’t wear tampons? Where we bleed freely all over chairs and benches and bus seats? Where we walk proudly with blood running down our legs, at the back of our pants, pooling on the floor? We could call it “National Cut the String Day”. We’d only need to do it once before truckloads of free tampons started showing up at our doors.

Speaking for myself, I knew it was the first time I had taken responsibility for my own life. I wasn’t going to let things happen to me. I was going to direct my life, and therefore it felt positive. But still, I didn’t tell anyone, because I knew that out there it wasn’t [viewed that way].” — Gloria Steinem re: her abortion
