Some gems from Buzzfeed’s Feminist Quiz

I’m sorry, when did being a good feminist mean policing people’s body, fashion, name, and general lifestyle choices? When did being a good feminist mean being well educated and business oriented? Why does checking any of these things off mean you’re a shitty feminist?

Reasons I can’t deal with the movement. People say one thing in theory and turn around and shit on everyone who doesn’t act their way. Fuck preppy girls and throw them under the bus, apparently.

I actually was just discussing this with some facebook friends! This quiz seriously pissed me off. My nailcare is my own damn business. I like my makeup. I like my dresses and I love Beyonce. And I’ll shave if I damn well please. 

If you try to police my body in any way, shape or form, you’re just as bad as the patriarchy. 

This quiz: ew.

Sex Education in American Public Schools

every one makes fun of New Jersey but it fucking rules

Wow, these graphs really put the lack of proper sex education in school into perspective.

Monica Jones was convicted, in spite of the community coming out to support her. Laverne Cox spoke about her at the GLAAD Media awards
policymic:

Monica was arrested for “walking while trans” — and now her supporters are fighting back

In the Grand Canyon state, “walking while trans” may very well be a criminal act.
That was the message sent last Friday by the Phoenix judge who convicted transwoman Monica Jones of “manifesting prostitution” following her arrest by undercover police officers in May of 2013.

SIGNAL BOOST. Arizona State University and Barrett, the Honors College refuses to fire sexual predators. Sign this petition to demand justice. →

Arizona State University’s Barrett the Honors College has been home to professors who sexually harass and sexually abuse students for 15 years; the administration knows and has not only failed to protect students, but has also actively discouraged students from reporting these crimes by denying the existence of rape culture, recommending students recant their reports, and even retaliating against students who pursue justice.

This cannot be allowed to happen. Private and internal investigations have clearly failed, so the public must hold ASU and Barrett accountable for their unacceptable actions.  Reblog on tumblr and spread bit.ly/fireasupredators on all your social media. 

For more information, read the petition description and visit Sun Devils Against Sexual Assault’s wordpress
