    Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014

    Both by Dan Bagan

    Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.

    Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”

    Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.

    These are women are who I always wanted to be.

    This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

    Author John Scalzi was on a roll this morning (currently 7:14 AM, 26 Sept. 2014) with a tweet he found from some guy sending out an “ultimatum” to women to “make a choice” between feminism and, well, men like him. So Scalzi launched into a truly magnificent set of scorchers, which I’m posting here for the delectation of people everywhere.

    Also: I would like to thank that guy for setting the ultimatum. It makes finding a boyfriend so much easier when the undesirable ones wear a placard identifying themselves.

    So this is what trust looks like.

    Funny, my first thought was “So this is what the patriarchy looks like.”

    Yup. This is how women are supposed to trust men. With their lives.

    Woman : “Hey, can we just… Drop the bow?”
    Man : “WHY DON’T YOU TRUST ME I’M NOT A VIOLENT GUY, YOU ARE INSULTING ME THINKING I WILL HURT YOU!!!”
    Woman : “No it’s just… Well I’m afraid.”
    Man : “But why? Look at me, I’m not afraid. And we’re equal, look, we pull the bow together.”
    Woman : “I think we’re not equal, you can kill me with the arrow and I can’t.”
    Man : “What? So you would like to be able to kill me? You’re so agressive!”
    Woman : “That’s not what I mean, we were talking about equality : you can hurt me, I can’t.”
    Man : “Of course you can. You can hit me with the bow if you want.”
    Woman : “That’s not the same thing, it will never kill you.”
    Man : “Oh, you always complaining, stop victimising yourself! Do I talk about the difficulty of holding the arrow? Of the responsibility it giving to me?”

    […]
    Etc, etc.
    Every debates about gender equality, ladies and gentleman.

    omg the comments.  Brilliant.
