    being friendly with a boy you aren’t romantically/physically attracted to and him developing feelings for you isn’t your fault, nor does it mean you were “leading him on”. you are under no obligation to date him.

    Even if he gets really mad about it. Remember that it’s his problem that he caught feelings. Not your problem.

    Last Night in Ferguson (10.21.14): A state senator was arrested (and mama may have been legally packing), one of the lead organizers, nettaaaaaaaa, was roughed up by police, and one of the main sources of footage/live feeds, Rebel Z, was detained in what seems to have been an intimidation and straight up harassment tactic. The police are out of control, and it’s only getting worse. If you think this is over, you need to look again. #staywoke #farfromover

    Ferguson is still happening. Are you still paying attention?

    Tune into Z’s UStream tonight to watch developments live.

    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 “don’t be such a girl” is taken as an insult whereas “you’re the man” is taken as a compliment

    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

    because men are more worried about “saving the tatas” instead of the lives of women fighting breast cancer

    because malala yousafzai was shot in the head for trying to go to school

    because men threatened to bomb a college because a woman tried to give a feminist presentation

    because no matter how many reasons I give there will be men who will brush aside what I say and tell me I’m overreacting because I am a girl

    it’s not your job to entertain him by sending him nudes

    it’s not your job to satisfy him sexually because he’s horny

    you are not required to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable or that you don’t want to do

    don’t be scared of “losing him”

    he most likely wasn’t anything worth keeping

    Girls need to be taught this from such an early age.

    And boys need to be taught to respect the girls.

  10. secret-supernova said: "Why is it Unneceptable to visit or volunteer at Africa as a white person?" Because most of the time, those volun-tourist things end up fundingthe white savior industry than actually helping impoverished Africans. This one woman came to my school and told us about how one when she we went to Volunteer at Africa, the program was much more focused on making the volunteers feel good about themselves than helping the people there (google "the problem with little white boys, girls, and voluntourism)
