"The hyper-sexualization of little girls and their bodies, as a mother, really bothers me. It plays into the sexualization of their bodies into their teenager years and adult life. It makes them grow up faster than they need to. Let them be little girls, have fun, be able to play in the playground and not worry about going on the monkey bars because someone’s going to see their underwear. Something like this constricts their movements, which affects the way they play."

Jenny Reid, a volunteer firefighter with Langford Fire Rescue, says the costume is not only offensive to women in her field, it’s also damaging to the self-esteem of little girls.

"That costume is awful and it sends the wrong message," she says. "It reinforces that there are still jobs that are off-limits to women. It’s not a representation of the real job. Little girls can do whatever they want. They shouldn’t be restricted. Those types of costumes put so many limitations on them. They don’t build the self-esteem and confidence you need to be a firefighter or police officer." " [x]

I work at a halloween store and have been pointing this out to coworkers, as well as getting into discussions with moms and dads about this all year (really, for the past four years, but it has actually gotten worse).

We did a count and we only had two little girls costumes that weren’t a dress/skirt.  Costumes like pikachu, cat, cop, firefighter, powerranger ALL are turned into little dresses that barely look anything like they are supposed to.

It is sad and scary. Make your own costume.

That is fucked up

Two MSU basketball players raped a woman in the dorms then one admitted to it. Their only consequence was that they had to move out of the dorms. This picture is of me and one other woman holding up this banner during Midnight Madness. Two other brave souls had a banner on the other side for a while before some jerk started playing tug or war with them over it. This was taken before we got booed at by 10,000 people and police escorted from the stadium. 

How screwed up are people to boo at this? 

Let’s keep reposting this. Rapists should be charged.

how is sport more important than the lives of women?

"A hero is also someone who, in their day to day interactions with the world, despite all the pain, uncertainty and doubt that can plague us, is resiliently and unashamedly themselves. If you can wake up every day and be emotionally open and honest regardless of what you get back from the world then you can be the hero of your own story. Each and every person who can say that despite life’s various buffetings that they are proud to be the person they are is a hero.”

I’m so glad you’re the first person to know.

Constable Odo: because apparently it takes a shapeshifter to be willing to just be friends with somebody with whom you’re madly in love.

(And think about it: Odo didn’t go pout about being “friend-zoned” by Kira. He sucked it up and carried on. More men should do the same.
And oh yeah, being her friend ended up working out for him in the end, didn’t it?)

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

THANK YOU. 

It is not about saving breasts…boobies..whatever. 

It is about saving HUMAN BEINGS..Especially because men get breast cancer too..

THANK YOU! I despise those campaigns.
