So you telling me that the U.S has completely cured the American doctor with Ebola in 26 days and he’s being released today. While Africa has been dealing with it since the 70’s and they are still looking for a cure.

I'm sorry, if you don't think that rape culture affects trans women and you think that anyone who does think so is a "penis worshipper", then you don't support trans people, and I don't understand why you'd say that you do.

I do think rape culture affects trans women. The overall point though was that it is irresponsible and offensive to try to separate vaginas from feminism (despite the fact that trans women exist and deserve rights and protection), because so much of the oppression of women is centered around female anatomy (especially in regard to reproductive rights), and cis women are socialized to be ashamed of their vaginas/vulvas/etc, thus reclaiming and overcoming that is a big deal to a lot lot lotttt of women.

You can support the rights of trans people to transition and live safely and authentically without denying that sex-based misogyny and oppression exists. That should not be controversial. Honestly just ????

okay but we can do that without referring to vaginas as female anatomy and also by addressing the fact that any sex-based misogyny is inherently cissexist

We Speak is a poster and blog campaign featuring ten young women who are speaking up about their relationships with mental health and how it informs their identities. Part of Launch: Stamps School of Art and Design’s Senior Thesis Exhibition at the University of Michigan, it will be featured at Work Gallery - Ann Arbor in the exhibition opening on Friday, April 18th from 6-9. The show will remain up through May 3rd. 

In the past year, the ten young women featured in the poster portion of We Speak came face to face with the state of our mental health. Our stories, carefully and honestly written, are meant to start a conversation about a topic that many of us wish we could ignore. But these are our realities, and in sharing them, we want to start chipping away at the stigma that often keeps us feeling weak and alone.

In addition to the original ten participants, everyone is encouraged to consider sharing their own story about mental health. By contributing your experiences, you can help open the discussion about the importance of mental health and tear down the stigma that keeps it so hidden. By sharing this project, you can foster support.

Skinny white girls angry about black women wanting to say “fuck those skinny bitches” need to get out of my ask box.

Black women are allowed to be frustrated that your bodies are valued more than theirs.

If you’re genuinely cut up about it, turn off your radio, go into literally any clothes…

this is stupid, why do they have the right to shame someone else’s body, they who know how horrible it is are going to make others feel horrible? shaming another body type won’t make people stop shaming yours.

Fuck them skinny bitches complaining on my post about the exact thing I’m asking y’all not to do in my ask box.

Black women are allowed to be frustrated that your bodies are valued more than theirs.

If you’re genuinely cut up about it, turn off your radio, go into literally any clothes shop and buy some clothes while you walk past all the billboards full of other skinny white women.

Like, being a woman is hard regardless of your appearance but seriously, let black women have an outlet to express themselves and back the heck up.

but anaconda literally says 'fuck those skinny bitches'. I'm all about empowering black women and their bodies but I don't see how that it is necessarily any better than all about that base. Empowerment isn't about taking down others

I literally don’t care about All About That Bass.

Like I could currently not care any less about that song. I have more important things happening in my life than caring about half arsed songs about how men like curves.

If you like it, then like it. I don’t care.

I don’t like it as a song. It’s not exactly my style. I don’t care if you want to listen to it.

Do what you want. Like what you want. You don’t need me to agree with you and I certainly don’t need the validation of some pushy anon.

Maybe a month ago I was wrong about it. I have no idea what I said about it at the time because I care so little about this issue that I’m not even going to look back on my blog about why you’re getting all up in my face.

It’s a fine song. Great, body positive media. Excellent. It’s cool when anyone says my body isn’t gross because it’s fat. But it’s far from the best body positive anthem.

I don’t think “thin shaming” actually exists. If that’s what you’re here for.

I just really don’t care about All About That Bass.
