Someone get this guy a fucking medal.

They made birth control for men. However it never got past the clinical testing stage because its side effects were things like “moodiness, extreme cramping, hunger, increased sexual drive” and were considered INHUMANE.

what the fuck do they think women go through every goddamn month seriously

I’M SORRY MEN CAN’T HANDLE MENSTRATION

men are pussies

Men are not pussies because they can’t handle having one

men are penises

the post was amazing and the comments made it better.

Oh, it’s even worse than that.
Hormonal birth control for men has been a solved problem since the 1970s, and the current iterations of the technology are actually substantially superior to equivalent treatments for women, demonstrating higher effectiveness, less dangerous side effects, and lower prevalence of side effects in virtually all modern trials. At this point, some forty years on, such treatments continue to be refused certification on the ostensible basis of concerns over the purely hypothetical effects of long-term use.
Meanwhile, a hormonal birth control treatment for women whose known and documented side effects include “sudden death” can go from the laboratory to the pharmacy shelf in under five years.
Really shows you where our priorities lie, doesn’t it?

The footage of former Ravens running back Ray Rice punching his then-fiancée in the face started a much-needed conversation about domestic violence. This comedian took a completely different approach with a “Ray Rice Inspired Makeup Tutorial” that could’ve gone so incredibly wrong but instead gets it so so right.

OHHHH MY GODDDD I THOUGHT SHE WAS GONNA DO BLACK FACE BUT IT TURNED OUT SO MUCH BETTER THAN I EXPECTED

MEGAN MACKAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

love this article http://www.cnn.com/2014/09/23/living/asexual-relationships-relate/index.html?hpt=hp_bn11

I’m curious why you love it. Tell?

for someone being asexual and aromantic, especially being only 16 it’s hard living with the fact that no one really knows you exist. everyone around you is focused on romance and sex. im happy to see that a big news network like cnn create an article bringing it into the light saying it’s real and were not broken and don’t need to be fixed, its just ive never seen one before

:)

Thanks for your answer. *high five* Stay strong and proud, my fellow aro ace.

2 years ago, I weighed 162 pounds.  Today I weigh 126.

I didn’t lose the weight by hating myself down to a size 4.  Not through dieting, not through crazy amounts of exercise, not through calorie counting, or purging.

I lost 35 pounds by learning to love and take care of my body.  I realized that part of loving myself is giving my body what it needs.  I changed my diet to include mostly plants, I cut out soda and fought hard against my addiction to sugary/fatty foods.  I began to see food as fuel and to use it as such.  I also made sure my body was in motion for at least 1 hour everyday, and these days I am even working on becoming physically stronger.  I knew that my old eating/exercise habits would not suit me as I began to age.  I knew that I wasn’t treating my body well.

When I truly began to love it, it took a new shape.  I loved my old shape.  I love my new shape.  I love it all because I love me! x)

This doesn’t sit well with me and I wish I could pinpoint all of the reasons why it doesn’t. I think a major one is how shaming it is for people who are fat and genuinely enjoy both their bodies AND fatty foods. It seems to equate eating certain things with not actually loving yourself. This is problematic.

This is SUPER problematic. Especially RIGHT on the heels of her fat shaming video last week.

So she changed her habits and her body changed. GREAT. Some people don’t want to change their habits. Some people don’t have the means (money time resources etc.) to change their habits. Some people do change their habits, but their body still looks the same. And ALL of that is okay. 

With a viewership like Laci has, she really needs to consider that this post is probably going to do a lot more harm than good. The gung-ho ‘I did it and so can you!’ approach is really off-putting. She even used the word ‘addiction’ when it came to sugary and fatty foods—and you know what, addictions aren’t just that easy to break, especially when it comes to food, which is necessary to live, and especially when the bad foods are the cheapest and most accessible to get.

Very disappointed. Love her sex positive stuff, but she’s got a lot to learn about body positivity.

eating healthy foods =/= loving your body

eating unhealthy foods =/= not loving your body

MOGAI vs. LGBTQIAP+

I just want you all to know that I came across a new acronym for the non-straight, non-cis community, and I like it so much that I’d like to see it gain traction, so I’m sharing.

MOGAI stands for “marginalized orientations gender alignments and intersex”. It encompasses the whole non-straight, non-cis community without naming any group individually (and therefore without leaving any group out).

MOGII is another version of MOGAI which I like less and so never use and would ask anyone who does use it to switch to MOGAI instead. It stands for “marginalized orientations gender identities and intersex”. The reason saying “gender identity" in this context is problematic is because "cis woman" is a marginalized gender identity, but straight cis women are not the type of people we’re talking about when discussing non-straight, non-cis issues, so it’s better to have an acronym that doesn’t accidentally include them in it. (Not that misogyny and anti-MOGAI attitudes don’t intersect and overlap, it’s just a matter of being specific about the groups we’re talking about.)

And to make sure we’re all on the same page, LGBTQIAP+ stands for “lesbian gay bisexual transgender queer intersex asexual pansexual plus anything else that might be left out of that acronym—like demisexual, for example.)

To help start normalizing the use of MOGAI in place of GLBT or LGBT (or LGBTQ or LGBTQIAP+ or any of the almost countless varieties of that which are used variously by the informed public, much to the confusion of the rest of the populace)—and to normalize it without totally alienating or confusing people who aren’t familiar with it yet—any time I now refer to this community I call it the “MOGAI/LGBTQIAP+” community. Consider that a suggestion. ;)

And by the way, I pronounce MOGAI “moe guy”, which is additionally great because it’s a lot easier to say than “ell gee bee tee queue eye eh pee plus”, haha. (Does anyone feel more inclined to say “moe gay” instead? Or maybe even “em oh gee eh eye”? I’m curious.)

Beating 1080 Avalanche is something that I’ve been trying to do for a while and the fact that I can’t is making me angry.

I am shaking after watching this video. This is so upsetting. So brave of this person to come forward. This goes deeper than YouTube. Sam Pepper needs to face criminal charges immediately.

New Comic!

Pronouns, right? Super weird little lexical referents. 

My site moved to a new host, so everything should be better now! Everything -  my site, my comic, my life, my cats, my cooking, my sex. Everything. 

Read the thing people.

the apology thing is really important because the second you do that the mistake becomes about you and your feelings and it becomes my job to console you after having my own feelings hurt.
