Janet Mock on Beyonce’s feminism

I love her so much

"That writer can take several seats. At Beyoncé’s concert." STAN GIRL YASS

Serving as a Beyonce evangelist and a defender of sexuality + nuance in popular culture.

“I recently went to Comic-Con in London, I was invited without the white male counterpart of my cast. And it was packed. They knew it was just gonna be me. So that shook me. I went back to the green room and I was like… I’ve always been told, and I believed, that this doesn’t work without him.” (x)

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

YAAAAEEESSSSSSS

You know what I like, and feel is so important? That he doesn’t say “Men thinks those are THEIR positions”. He says “We think those are OUR positions.”

As a male feminist, he still doesn’t exclude himself from the group of men.

Damn.

Well said.

The SCAR Project: Breast Cancer Is Not A Pink Ribbon

The SCAR Project is a series of large-scale portraits of young breast cancer survivors shot by fashion photographer David Jay. Primarily an awareness raising campaign, The SCAR Project puts a raw, unflinching face on early onset breast cancer while paying tribute to the courage and spirit of so many brave young women.

Dedicated to the more than 10,000 women under the age of 40 who will be diagnosed this year alone, The SCAR Project is an exercise in awareness, hope, reflection and healing.

Now HERE’S a good goddamn glimpse at breast cancer.  Fuck your “save second base” bullshit.  -C

I’m a really big fan of this because it removes the oversexualized “save the boobies” mentality from our thoughts and serves as a reminder that breast cancer IS a disease with real effects. People truly do suffer and making the primary campaign slogan for breast cancer something that serves to make women useful only so long as they are sexually gratifying men is extemely degrading and humiliating.

I need feminism because…sexual harassment [not taken seriously when reported to my boss] is the reason I’ve quit more than one job!

Thank you feminist for…

- standing up for my right to vote (1920) - helping everyone start to receive equal pay (EPA of 1963) - representing a woman’s right to become employed while pregnant (PDA of 1978) - assisting in finally getting legal aid to those who do survive domestic violence (VAWA of 1994)
