Courtenay McKay created a series of posters for the Gender Based Violence Prevention Project (GBVPP) at the University of Alberta to spread awareness about rape culture.

The Gender Based Violence Prevention Project is a new project of the Students’ Union that promotes a campus free of gender based violence. Gender Based Violence exists in both visible and invisible ways on our campus and affects the lives of many University students, staff, faculty, and community members. Through education, awareness, and institutional change, we are striving to create a campus free of gender based violence where everyone can feel safe and supported.”

The Fray | Over My Head (Cable Car)

Let’s rearrange
I wish you were a stranger I could disengage
Just say that we agree and then never change
Soften a bit until we all just get along

Yes Wonder Woman… Hmm. Why are her boobs bigger than her head tho? …Brainwashing indeed. #Oxymoron

Why should her breasts (COMPLETELY COVERED by a CONSERVATIVE BUSINESS JACKET) have anything to do with her as a character—her intelligence, power or ability to be taken seriously when she speaks? #twat

I’m going to point out that the issue I always hear people have with Wonder Woman is her uniform. But Wonder Woman is a goddamn diplomat, an intelligent woman, and that doesn’t change no matter what she’s wearing. Most of the time, this is how she dresses anyway. You know, like the professional she is. But it’s dismissed. As if showing skin makes her a dumb, useless, blow up doll who can smash. 

And let’s fucking face it, if I looked half as good as her I’d wear shorts and tank-tops all year round and that wouldn’t affect my abilities as an engineer any more than her uniform affects her abilities to be everything she is in a business suit.

And furthermore, let me explain something to you about female anatomy.

PEOPLE CAN HAVE BOOBS BIGGER THAN THEIR HEADS.

Does that make them brainwashed? No! That just means they probably have a hell of a harder time finding a bra than you tumblr user iturban.

Seriously, a woman’s intelligence is not determined by her breasts.

The organ that you’re thinking of is the brain.

Chick with boobs bigger than her head checking in here. And surprise! My boobs aren’t even considered to be medically overlarge. I’m a 36F and with a proper bra I experience no back or hip pain (related to my breasts—I do have swayback and have had back problems related to it since early childhood; ironically, the weight of my breasts actually helps by adding a mild correction to my spine!).

Do you know what I do experience?

Having to shop only at Goodwill and boutiques because assholes like you think cute clothes for large-breasted women don’t belong in places like Target or Kohl’s, and having trouble finding a swimsuit because all swimsuits are made for C-cup or smaller women. Having to drop $100+ per bra not because the bra itself is worth $100+, but because my size isn’t carried in most US stores even though it’s becoming a common cup size.

Having women I don’t know from Adam feel it’s their right to ask me, loudly, in front of men and children, “Are those real?” or “How much did those cost?” Occasionally, being delicately called a liar when I say they’re natural: “Wow, I didn’t know breasts got that big with no padding at all. What kind of bra do you wear?”

Having to tailor my T-shirts at home to add panels that will accommodate my breasts, because most women’s T-shirts are close-cropped in the chest; my waist fits like a medium, but my chest fits like an XL. My other option is wearing only men’s tees, which also require tailoring so they don’t look like I’m in a freakin’ dress.

Having to be turned out of store after store, face red, when a customer service rep stammers “Oh—we—we don’t carry sizes for women your size.”

Because we’re clearly all brainwashed sluts and bimbos. The mass of fatty tissue on our chests definitely defines our intelligence. I have an IQ higher than some US presidents and I work in management without having ever actually gotten a business degree, but yes, by all means, I’m just an idiot.

Because of my ginormous, bigger-than-my-head boobs.

Nicki Minaj shining a light on the differences on acceptable sexuality from white women and black women.

While it has a good deal to do with color, it also has to do with the fact of how her sexuality is used.

The women above her could arguably be said to be catering to the sexual needs/wants/fantasies of men (Sports Illustrated is ESPECIALLY known for catering to a male gaze.)  While Nicki Minaj has continuously used her sexuality to empower herself.  Her sexuality isn’t for men, it’s for her own self.  And THAT is a huge problem.  Sexuality that isn’t designed for male consumption is deemed unacceptable and threatening.  She is powerful, demanding, uncompromising, and men are weak, so that scares them.

And it’s also because she’s of Indian/Black background, no doubt about it.  It’s not just racist, it’s also sexist.

Just saying, I’m a man and I was taught over 1/2 of these. 

"I think we grow up thinking the only love that counts as true love is the kind that lasts forever or is fully realized. When you have a broken heart, the first thing a stranger will ask is ‘how long were you two together?’ As if your pain can be determined by how long you were with someone. Or if you were with them at all. I don’t think that’s how it works. I think unrequited love is just as valid as any other kind. It’s just as crushing and just as thrilling. No matter what happens in this situation, I want you to remember that what you are doing is selfless and beautiful and kind. You are loving someone purely because you love them, not because you think you’ll ever have your affections reciprocated. You are admiring something for its beauty, without needing to own it. Feel good about being the kind of person who loves selflessly. I think someday you’ll find someone who loves you in that exact same way."
Taylor Swift (via wordsthat-speak)
