Even recognizing how much Democrats can fuck things up, I never would have thought they could fuck up just passing one of the most popular pieces of major legislation in my lifetime (over 75% support overall, 59% OF REPUBLICANS support it) while Republicans are over there Read more

I imagine that they want to finally be able to tell their side of their own story without being muzzled by Royal protocol. And far, far more people will watch/hear that story via an interview with Oprah than via any newspaper article. Read more

My 25 year old niece just celebrated her 18 month soberversary. Her trouble started when she was raped at age 13 and she’s survived many suicide attempts, sex work and every drug known to humankind being put into her body.

In one of the anecdotes in Reviving Ophelia, a teenage girl talked about how her male therapist wrote off her depression and didn’t think sexism and misogyny were relevant to her life. He wrote her off as lazy for not wanting to get out of bed and go to school instead of, you know, finding out why like a therapist is Read more

Love when women talk about negative experiences they’ve had with men and people respond that they should ‘pick more carefully’ :/

That’s called victim blaming, and it’s not women’s responsibility to ‘be more careful’ when the problem is with society and how people are trained to view and approach sex.

And I’m telling you just because they hold the door for me or whatever doesn’t mean they know or care whether my clit is. It’s not about that at all. Read more
