"A women is not defined by what’s between her legs."

— 13 Myths and Misconceptions about Trans Women -Natalie Reed (via midnightbikerider)

The other day I wrote about El Salvador’s extraordinarily harsh abortion laws, which have included murder convictions for women whose only crime was miscarriage. I noted that if you think such a thing could never happen here, you haven’t been paying attention.

"Contrary to the tired trope about “mothers, wives and daughters” that generally gets thrown around in arguments about why men should care about women’s rights, men should be feminists because the lives of the women and girls they have never met and will never meet matter. Particularly in a culture that does not encourage men to cultivate or express empathy, this thing of giving a basic shit about people you don’t know is itself a kind of radical act. But Berlatsky’s point that “misogyny is a cage for everyone” also captures another reason that I think men can and should identify as feminists. Because of course men should be outraged at the violence experienced by women and girls and the systems that dehumanize them, but framing men’s relationship to feminism exclusively as men’s relationship to women’s status in the world erases the fact that men are also harmed by patriarchy, toxic masculinity and entrenched cultural and institutional sexism."

Men can be feminists but it’s actually really hard work. (via salon)

People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers”  your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am.

sapiosexual-musings said: Book recomendation because I can not help myself. I saw the quote post about American's in Rwanda and its absolutely correct. If you're interested in that sort of thing, check out the book Crazy Like US by Ethan Watters. He goes through four mental illnesses (Anorexia, Depression, Schizophrenia and PTSD) and how they developed in different cultures, and how America swept in and made everything worse by trying to diagnose people.
