because instead of teaching boys not to drug girls and rape girls we teach girls to always be on our edge and take all these precautions to ensure our own safety
because girls still get raped even if we did every single thing we were told
because “she was wearing a short skirt and tight crop top” is a good enough reason to rape a girl
because girls still get raped even when they’re wearing a burqa
because people will make up all kinds of excuses to blame the rape victim instead of the rapist
because women cannot speak out on being sexually abused by a man without facing harassment instead of sympathy
because girls can’t be out at night on their own without fearing for their lives
because a man’s biggest fear when interacting with a woman is being rejected whereas a woman’s biggest fear is being raped and/or murdered
because women cannot embrace their own sexuality without being called sluts and whores
because those photos of Nick Jonas half naked grabbing his junk were acceptable and sexy but Nicki Minaj posing in a bikini is inappropriate and slutty
because in England one incident of domestic violence is reported to the police every minute
because in South Africa one in four girls will be raped in their lifetime
because one average, 2 women a week are killed by a current or ex male partner
because women feel the need to apologise to men for not wanting to sit with them, talk to them, dance with them. they feel the need to apologise for saying “no”
because a “no” coming out of a woman’s mouth is taken as “try harder” by men

because Ke$ha is constantly portrayed as a stupid slut just because she likes to sing about partying but never has anyone called a male artist stupid for singing about partying
because when Taylor Swift sings about wanting to get back together with her ex or missing her ex she is “crazy” and “obsessed” but when Robin Thicke released the song “Get Her Back” along with a video of a woman drowning, featuring real texts between him and his ex-wife, him pointing his fingers like a gun and raised to his head, and ending with a figure walking off into the distance with the words: “This is just the beginning”, all of which are disturbing and clearly manipulative and emotionally abusive actions but Robin Thicke, instead of being called a lunatic, is praised for being a “vulnerable” and “sensitive” man
because “boys will be boys” is a phrase constantly used invalidate girls speaking out on being harassed by boys
because men fetishising women of colour is supposed to be taken as a compliment

[boy voice] yeah i read a lot of nietzsche and hemingway, i listen to radiohead and radiohead only, pop music makes me sick, i’m all about equal rights between men and women and all but theres scientific evidence that men are better than women
Calling a tax break a “handout” or a “gift” is like someone pulling their knife partway out of your flesh and calling it “first aid”.

Kanye West going crazy to A-ha’s “Take On Me”
Oh my god I never knew I needed this
this is actually an amazing prank I believe, like put it under someones pillow and when they go to sleep and slam their head on the pillow it explodes spaghetti and sauce every where. so evil. so good.
my feminist goal is not to convince men that girls are of value, my feminist goal is to achieve a future where the judgement of our value isn’t in the hands of men.
and this goes for, especially goes for, trans girls, girls of colour, disabled girls and LGBTQA+ girls.
girls, all girls, and if you believe otherwise don’t reblog this.
When Colour Occupies Space: Paint Chip Art by Peter Combe
San Francisco-based visual artist creates three-dimensional artworks using household paint swatches as his prime matter, usually hand-punched into small disks. He then fits these disks into bevel-cut grooves on a specially prepared archival material in order to create his pieces, ranging from abstract pattern-based colour compositions to realistic portraits of people. Apart from producing portraits commissioned by collectors, Combe also likes to work with images found on social media, especially Instagram
