i hate that “LOL SO IF WOMEN ARE EQUAL CAN I PUNCH YOU” shit bc 1 in 3 women are abused

y’all are already punching us

the issue is that we’d like you to stop

Also if the first thing your mind goes to is “now I can punch women with no repercussions fucking sweet!” MAYBE YOU HAVE ISSUES

I find it interesting how society doesn’t care when the media sexualizes women, when men sexualize women, or when school and the government sexualize women. But the second a woman is in control, and sexualizes herself willingly, it’s wrong and disgusting.

Awww, you tried so hard, but unfortunately I can’t hear you over the sound of my debt-free college degree and massive disposable income.

many of the things wrong with the world can be summed up in this comment

how do people still find this joke funny? 

Sandwich jokes are a product of men feeling intimidated by women who are smarter, stronger, or more successful than they are.

OFFENDING TRANS PEOPLE

I think the best way to stop people being offensive by accident is to tell them what they’re doing wrong!

Science Needs Women: 
For Women in Science; the L’Oreal Foundation 

I’m sharing this video on any platform I can because when I first found it last week it had something like 1,400 views, but it’s the most beautifully produced and succinctly narrated video addressing some of the most complicated issues facing women in STE(A)M fields I’ve found yet. 

I’m sharing this for every time I’m called a “feminazi.”

…for every time I’m told that my concerns aren’t valid, our that our issues are imagined.

…for every time I hear “women just don’t like science,” or worse - “women just aren’t good at science.”

…for every time we’re told that we can have a family or a career, but not both - and for every time we feel like we have to decide between the two.

…for every time a study comes out saying as many as 64% of women endure sexual harassment during field work

…for the fact that women earn 41% of PhD’s in STEM fields, but make up only 28% of tenure-track faculty in those fields.

…and because we need more women mentors in these fields to stand up for issues that are not “women’s issues” - these are people issues that affect our collective society as a whole.

The women in this video are my heroes and they should be your heroes, too.

as some of you have seen unfold on here, my book - “THE ART OF ASKING” - is officially DONE. inspired by my TED talk and also sort of a memoir, i’ve been doing almost nothing else since january…but after months of intense writing, editing, and reading aloud for the audiobook, it soon finds its way to you and i’ll embark on a little signing tour in support of it. i can’t wait for you to hopefully read (or listen).
it’s about…everything.
and it’s COMING OUT on NOVEMBER 11th (in hardcover, e-reader, and audiobook formats).
and HERE IS THE COVER. i think it’s beautiful.
if you wanna know how i ended up naked and getting my body painted by a bunch of LA artists (with allan amato shooting the whole thing), i wrote a blog about the MAKING OF the cover. it’s HERE on my site.
p.s. as mentioned, i will be doing a HUGE BOOK-SIGNING TOUR in the states this fall. i’ll announce dates alongside pre-order info for SIGNED copies, SOON via THE GOLDEN, HOLY MAILING LIST and my blog. if you don’t want to hold out for a written-on-by-me copy, pre-order info is up now at amandapalmer.net. more soon. LOVE.

THIS 14-YEAR-OLD GENIUS COULD PUT A STOP TO CYBERBULLYING

Today in practical, informative art: A feminist art student has designed a wearable guide to female anatomy, in the form of stylish high-waisted women’s underwear and a matching t-shirt bra. Eleanor Haswell’s project, “Why Are You So Afraid Of Your Own Anatomy?,” celebrates the female body with a scientific diagram of the reproductive system — from ovary to fallopian tube to broad ligament — lying roughly in the location where each component actually exists, along with a “full coverage” brassiere that depicts the nipple and areola in their full glory.

As a 19-year-old sophomore at Stanford, Elizabeth Holmes decided to transform diagnostic medicine so she dropped out of college and used her tuition money to start her own company, Theranos. Ten years later, Holmes, pictured here holding a micro-vial, is on the cutting edge of medical technology — her new blood testing method allows hundreds of tests to be run using only a few drops of blood. And, Holmes’ methods are cheaper, faster, more accurate, and less invasive than conventional methods which often require a separate vial of blood for every test.As Holmes told Wired.com earlier this year, “I started this company because I wanted to spend my life changing our health care system. When someone you love gets really sick, most of the time when you find out, it’s too late to be able to do something about it. It’s heartbreaking… We wanted to make actionable health information accessible to people everywhere at the time it matters most. That means two things: being able to detect conditions in time to do something about them and providing access to information that can empower people to improve their lives.”

And finally someone said it

nobody’s fucking stopping you from putting on some foundation dude you can put it on and it’s discrete and other straight guys won’t be able to tell and it does wonders. nobody’s stopping you from moisturizing or even putting on the lightest bits of concealer. don’t worry, other straight men can’t tell

Also there’s less pressure for men to be attractive and more pressure on women to see past men’s looks for their personalities, like look how many movies star average/ugly dudes who still score modelesque girls.

step 1: create unrealistic, unattainable standards of beauty for women

step 2: build a multi-billion dollar beauty industry to sell women makeup, tell them they are worthless without it

step 3: mock and vilify women who wear makeup as vain and fake, mock and vilify women who don’t wear makeup as ugly

step 4: code makeup as exclusively feminine, make the feminine shameful, shame any and all men perceived as feminine

step 5: complain that you can’t wear makeup

all that commentary
