If a female student got drunk and had her car stolen the university would call the police. If she got drunk and had her computer stolen, they would call the police. If she got drunk and had her phone stolen, they would call the police. The fact that she was drunk would not even be factored in when assessing if a crime had been committed. But if she gets drunk and has her body invaded and her humanity stolen, school administrations are perplexed about what to do.

Why is this such a huge issue? Why can’t the singer change the pronoun to fit whomever he or she thinks is attractive?

Feminism means every woman has the right to choose how she wants to dress..
Don’t tell other women how to dress, mind your own fucking business!

YES.

look
i’m a veiled muslim girl and let me tell you something
i wore the veil because I WANTED to, not because someone forced me. our holy book states that once you get your period, you should cover your hair. some women are 60 and still haven’t worn it. when i reached puberty, i went to my parents and I TOLD THEM that i want to wear it. my parents thought it was too early, but i insisted because this is something that i feel is right.
so don’t go on saying that we’re oppressed. some families do oppress the females, but we’re not ALL like that.
not every woman wearing a veil is oppressed. we just chose to wear that veil like you chose to wear that tiny black dress last night. if a woman is free to not cover up her body, then why is she not free to cover it up, too?

Hate breeds hate is probably the most bullshit thing I’ve ever heard.

You know what hasn’t changed the world? Simply sitting by and hoping it changes.

You know what HAS changed the world? Revolution, protests, marches anger.

Anger and passion have changed the world and I’m going to bed damned is someone tries to silence me or anyone else by talking about “hate breeds hate”

Shut the fuck up.

Beauty or brains? 

Fuck that, it’s not a dichotomy. Let’s not act like mascara glues girls eyes so shut that they can’t read a word of Dickens or solve a trig problem. Let’s talk about how no boy has ever been asked if he’d rather get his Bachelor’s or get married; no boy has ever been told that he’s too handsome to run for office. So why cover up my tits so you can take me seriously? 

Beauty or brains? I’ll take ‘em all, thanks.

This is what pisses me off about Tumblr. You all say you’re so accepting and you don’t want to offend anyone, but then thousands of people reblog something like this because Christians aren’t the minority. You wouldn’t want to offend a Muslim, and if this were offensive to them or another minority, there’d be so many comments about it. But everyone is completely fine with offending a non minority. “You’re not oppressed, you can’t talk!” You know what? I’m a Christian and this offends me and my faith, but nobody’s going to care about that because I’m not oppressed. Tumblr is hypocritical and that needs to stop.

Amen to the comment

Oh my precious lambs:

Examine why you are being offended. Because this is literally how a sunset works. There is not room for debate on this question. There is less room for debate on this than there is on just about any other thing. We are not reblogging because Christians aren’t the minority, dear ones. We are reblogging because after the debate a few days ago, creationists were given the opportunity to pose a question for non-creationists. One of these questions was:

"How can you explain a sunset if their is no god?" (sp.)

Questions, we assume, are posed so that someone might answer them. And yes, there is an answer of how exactly one can explain a sunset given the absence of a divine force. Now, you can certainly posit that God is the creator of all things and so all things came from him including the sun and light refraction and anthrax and kittens and famine and all that jazz.

But you don’t get to deny that THIS IS HOW A SUNSET WORKS, and of the necessary elements of this equation (Sun + Atmosphere + Angle = Sunset), God is not one of them. That’s because everything else is an observable phenomenon, and God is not. You can explain a sunset without God. You can go ahead and believe that God’s part of it all. That’s cool. Lots of people believe stuff like that, and I encourage you to delve into the ways that people make science and their faith jive. But if you are offended by being shown the basic scientific principals behind a sunset, you must be offended by damn near everything. And that seems exhausting. 

In short:

People getting butthurt over science, fucking love it.

"Stop teaching science, it offends me"
