We know why.

Don’t forget Charlie Sheen. He’s been arrested for domestic violence at least six times and shot a woman. With a gun. And he’s still got a career.

Sean Penn tied Madonna to a chair and beat her. Fuck him. Fuck all of them.

Michael Fassbender
Matthew Fox
John Lennon
Paul McCartney
Ringo too I’m pretty sure
Phil Spector, although he’s now in jail for killing a lady he beat on Ronnie Spector for years and still got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Axl Rose
Vince Neil
Sean Penn
Charlie Sheen
Jim Morrison tried to set fire to his girlfriend
Stephen Segal
Tommy Lee
Ozzy Osbourne
Mickey Rourke
Bill Murray
Gary Busey
Tom Sizemore
Christian Slater
James Caan
Josh Brolin
Edward Furlong
I could go on.
The point isn’t that the men on the left don’t deserve everything bad they have coming to them.  The point is where the fuck is all the outrage when the men on the right do it.  So many of our pop culture heroes are abusers and nobody seems to care.
Like, even if we’re gonna stick to the NFL, Ben Roethlisberger patiently sat out his six game suspension for rape and continued on with his career with little outrage. 
If we’re really going to care now about ostracizing perpetrators of domestic violence, we got a lotta slack to pick up.

"malala is a role model for EVERY LITTLE GIRL regardless of race and religion"
no no n
o
no no fuck stop it
it is not regardless of race and religion she is a role model SPECIFICALLY for muslim little girls around the world. little white girls around the world have TONS of role models. everywhere. literally all over television, books, you name it. admire Malala, yes. that’s not what is being said. do not take something that is meant for a specific culture simply because you want it.

do..you.. know anything about Malala?  because I’m pretty sure she would read what you just said and be severely disappointed.
this post makes me so angry.  you are actually implying that this little girl is not allowed to be inspired by Malala because this girl isn’t Muslim, and that is just… so wrong.  That’s terrible.  


My philosophy of non-violence was only meant for Indians! Everyone else should just ignore me.

My charity was only meant to inspire my native Albanians. Everyone else should just forget about it
My courage and perseverance should only be a light unto fellow disabled people. Other people should realize I am just “not for them.”

My discoveries? GERMANS ONLY!
My charity work was really only meant to inspire Brits, not actually help anyone who isn’t my skin color and nationality.

I only care about Tibet. The rest of the world can suck it!
….seriously?

This photograph, taken in 1929, shows the nine players on the Plainfield YWCA women’s basketball team, the Red Middies. The team, organized in the late 1920s, was named for the type of blouses they wore. Standing second from left in the back row is Sophia Dickson, assistant physical education director at the YWCA. Dickson had also been employed as the supervisor of physical education for the Plainfield School District. All of the other athletes in the photograph are unidentified. Behind the team members is the YWCA building at 232 E Front St. Established in 1907, the Plainfield YWCA was originally located at 210 E. Front St. near Watching Avenue. The doors opened at 232 E. Front St., at the corner of Church Street, in October 1929. The English Tudor-style building was constructed by Arthur Ware of New York City. In 1998, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places. In the early 2000s, a grant was given to the YWCA to restore the theater and second floor. The YWCA at 232 E. Front St. continues to serve the Plainfield area. The structure retains much of it original floor plan and decorative finishes and still hosts numerous programs for its 850 members.

Six-year-old Mehran is not your typical Afghan girl — she flies kites, climbs trees and freely speaks her mind. She is a bacha posh: girls who live as boys to escape patriarchal domination in Afghanistan.“People use bad words for girls; they scream at them on the streets,” says 15-year-old Zahra, who has been living as a boy since she was two. “When I see that, I don’t want to be a girl. For always, I want to be a boy and a boy and a boy.”Little is known about the psycho-sexual impact that living as a boy has on these girls.

Anonymous asked:

Can you see a midwife instead of a gyno if you never want to give birth? I feel like I would be more comfortable seeing a midwife for contraception and check-ups, but I don't ever plan on being pregnant. So is that okay? Or do midwives just see patients who are pregnant?

themidwifeisin:

Hey ANON! 

YES! You can see a midwife instead of a gynecologist (MD) if you never have plans to give birth.  Midwives provide care throughout the lifespan. It’s a common misconception that midwives only take for pregnant and birthing patients.

Please come see us for: annual well-person exams, pap smears, birth control, vaginal complaints, breast changes, menstrual questions/concerns, urinary incontinence, menopausal questions/concerns, and on and on…

In their book “Half the Sky,” Nick and Sheryl take readers on a journey through Asia and Africa and introduce them to a series of amazing women and girls who’ve suffered unimaginable hardships, but have found the strength to rise above. What I love about the book is that it puts a human face to the struggles and challenges in the developing world, and gives readers a chance to connect on a personal level.

YouTube star Sam Pepper thinks sexually harassing women is a hilarious prank

When is it OK to sexually harass women on the street? When it’s for a YouTube video, of course!
That was the apparent thinking of reality-television star turned viral YouTube performer Sam Pepper, who came under fire this past weekend when his latest “prank” showed him sexually harassing women for laughs. The former Big Brother contestant, who has over 2 million YouTube subscribers, asked women on a busy street for directions while secretly grabbing their butts. 
Because nothing’s funnier than touching random women without their permission and catching the whole thing on camera.
The video is problematic for so many reasons | Follow micdotcom
