sexual liberation comes not just from having sex

but from the decision to have your sexual experiences on your own terms

which can mean deciding to have sex with whomever and however many times you want

or deciding to have no sex

the empowerment comes from the decision and having that decision respected

In light of the 50 Shades of Grey trailer coming out today, quick reminder that that book is about an abusive and controlling relationship, not BDSM.

Fanfiction (published or not) is important for women of all ages to explore gender roles and sexuality in a way that is less stigmatized and more accessible. 

But do not do the BDSM community a disservice by calling the relationship described in the book a BDSM experience.

In my opinion when it comes to abortion, both the mother & father must have a say in it. Some women think it’s just up to them when really, it isn’t. If the father wants a say in the decision, the mother must give him a chance. It’s has nothing to do with women empowerment or the fact that coz the woman carries the baby, she needs to have the say in it 100%. If it takes two people to make a baby, it takes two people to decide its future, IF and only if, they want a say.

Unwanted pregnancies should always be discussed when you’re being sexually active for someone.
But just because their sperm fertilised someone’s egg doesn’t mean they’re entitled to the other person’s uterus. Getting someone pregnant isnt 50%. It’s the pregnant person’s body that’s being used, its their life being directly affected.

A mini documentary on sex trafficking of Native women, with particular focus on Minnesota (Native women & girls are frequently sold on the shipping boats that travel around the Lakes, and have been for decades).

"People don’t see Native American women as humans. They see them as punching bags. Or something novel, like a new toy—it’s fun at first, but afterwards you throw it away." —Sarah El Fakahany, Sexual Assault Advocate at Minnesota Indian Women’s Resource Center

This is very sad, I didn’t know that the Native American women and girls were part of sex trade and prostitution.

it is a very big problem, much bigger than many people realize or want to admit, even among Native communities. if you go to a truck stop anywhere near tribal communities late at night, you will see young Native girls who have been trafficked. Minnesota, Arizona, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Oregon, & Washington are particularly bad. here’s some more resources on sex trafficking of Native women:

There’s also the fact that Robert Pickton was able to murder poor Aboriginal women for over a decade without people giving a fuck.

Let me repeat.

It’s not that they didn’t know. The police were aware of every missing woman, the families filed claims and the founder and foremost expert in geographic profiling, Kim Rossmo, told the Vancouver PD point blank that they had a serial killer hunting the women of the Downtown East Side.

They fired Rossmo, appointed a handful of part-time underpaid staff who were expected to maintain their regular day jobs to “research” the issue, and claimed they had it under control.

Robert Pickton was arrested after he tried to murder a prostitute named Stitch, and she stabbed him in the stomach. They both ended up in the same hospital. She was barely dressed, badly wounded, with a handcuff on her wrist. He was injured and covered in her blood.

The key to the handcuff around her wrist was found in his pocket.

The prosecution dropped the case because the word of a drug-addicted prostitute wasn’t going to hold up against a white millionaire’s.

Years later, when Pickton was arrested a second time for the murder of 26 Vancouver sex workers, the mud from the boots confiscated the night of his attack on Stitch was analyzed.

It carried the DNA of SIX of the missing women.

The boots had been kept in the evidence locker of the Vancouver Police Department.

So yeah. It’s easy to buy, sell, rape and murder First Nations women. It always has been.

people always mention like the 3 few PoC characters in HP that were actually important when…they… forget to mention… the tons of what characters…. that overshadow them…. 

like you think we dont KNOW Kingsley is black? That Cho Chang is asian and the Patil Twins are indian? You think we didnt cling to those desperately looking for their names on every page looking at the background of every scene hoping they would show up? 

What we wanted was good visibility not just background importance. Oh ya and more diversity because you know 5 background PoC isn’t enough

Oppression is cooking being “women’s work,” while the overwhelming majority of top restaurant chefs are male.

Oppression is fashion being a “silly girl thing,” while the top earning designers and CEOs in fashion are male.

Oppression is reducing women to consumers profiting a male system, even in fields that we supposedly dominate.

this is so fucking important.
