Imagine finding a dragon egg one day, and it hatches in your house and thinks you’re its mom. Then the next morning you wake up and find this mini dragon has gathered all the lose change and shiny objects in your house in a pile, and is gnawing on a nickel. And then when you take it out for walks, it picks up every coin it sees cause its a hoarder. And your house is eventually full of coins. And you are rich. And have a dragon.

I see no downside

Here’s just my face with my summer fresh freckles. This is probably as close as you’ll get to a Four Chambers portrait.

if you are ASEXUAL, you do not experience SEXUAL ATTRACTION.

if you are AROMANTIC, you do not experience ROMANTIC ATTRACTION.

if you are AROMATIC, you have a PLEASANT AND DISTINCTIVE SMELL.

Gloria Steinem and Dorothy Pitman-Hughes, 1972 and 2014
Both by Dan Bagan

Wanna see my cry like a baby? Ask me who these women were.
Hughes’ father was beaten nearly to death by the KKK when she was a kid, and what does she do? Become an activist to try and stop that from happening to other people. She raised money to bail civil rights protesters out of jail. She helped women get out of abusive situations by providing shelter for them until they got on their feet. She founded an agency that helped women get to work without having to leave their children alone, because childcare in the 1970s? Not really a thing. In fact, a famous feminist line in the 70s was “every housewife is one man away from welfare.”
Then she teamed up with Steinman to found the Women’s Action Alliance, which created the first battered women’s shelters in history. They attacked women’s rights issues through boots on the ground activism, problem solving, and communication. They stomped over barriers of race and class to meet women where they were: mostly mothers who wanted better for themselves and their children.
These are women are who I always wanted to be. bootsnblossoms:

Groups like the KKK are Christian terrorist organizations.

They’re never labeled as terrorists, not even Christian terrorists.

Y’all are silent about Christian terrorism but will discuss Islamic terrorism to the extent of believing all Muslims are terrorists.

The photo on the left is Chief Big Foot. He and an estimated 300 Native Americans were massacred at Wounded Knee in 1890 by the United States Army. Most of them were women and children that died face first in the freezing snow, shot in the back as they tried to run. This incident is a drop in the bucket as compared to the literal genocide that took place here until the early 1900’s and the cultural genocide that some argue still takes place today. Of the millions upon millions that were executed, NONE were dressed as a “Slutty Indian” or the ill representation of “Pocahontas.” These people were AND ARE more than a costume or a fake headdress. You may find this petty or sensitive, perhaps we should “grow up” or “focus on other real issues.” I wish we could. How can a people be taken seriously about the “real issues” if we are still a slutty costume at a Halloween party, a crude drawing on a baseball jersey, or a derogatory mascot on a football helmet. If you wouldn’t paint your face black and dress as a slutty African American woman, why on earth would you do that to a Native American and think it isn’t racist, that it’s “in good fun.”I love Halloween as much as the next person, probably more since it is the day after my birthday, but we can all have fun without being an ignorant bigot. I implore you to respect our culture, to respect our traditions, and to respect our ancestors. I BEG YOU TO RESPECT US!

I’ve never heard it put so well before.
THIS!

listen. i’m assuming here that being catcalled validates your womanhood, that’s what i’m taking from this. but really…do you really believe that this comic was in anyway necessary or okay to make? all this does is perpetuate the myth that women like to be catcalled, that it’s a GOOD thing that we appreciate. men already think they’re “flirting” with us when they do that and all you’re telling them is that they’re right. trans women may look at it as something positive, but the rest of us? do you know how many women are scared shitless of leaving their home and walking down the street because of catcalling? i have literally been assaulted on the street for not responding positively to catcalls. i’ve also had men physically move themselves in front of me to stop me from walking down the sidewalk, sticking their arms out to stop me from moving around them until i smiled at them, etc. i’ve been fucking SPAT at for fucks sakes. this is not okay, this is not alright, you’re perpetuating myths that harm so many women that it’s literally fucking frightening to me that this has so many notes. this is completely unacceptable. even though you described it as “bittersweet” there shouldn’t be “sweet” attached to this shit at all.  just stop. please, fucking stop, jfc.

Yes god forbid a transwoman EARLY IN HER TRANSITION find joy in publicly passing for the first time in her life. The comic very clearly portrays the “bitter” part of catcalling which we are all familiar with. Don’t shit on someone else’s feelings if they aren’t perpetrating negative behavior against women, which this clearly isn’t. Fuck.

"Sometimes this really seems to shock people. They appear genuinely upset when I say ‘this conversation is over’ or ‘I’m actually not interested in debating this with you.’ There’s an expectation that if you care about social justice and political issues, you’re always ‘on.’ You’re always ready to debate, you’re always ready to have theoretical discussions about your own lived experiences and the issues you care about, you’re always ready to defend yourself. That’s manifestly ridiculous and unjust, an expectation that’s simply not reasonable."
