be your own best lover!

orgasmictipsforgirls:

it’s kind of telling that people always write asking if there’s such a thing as masturbating too much but nobody EVER writes asking if there’s such a thing as having too much sex.

but masturbation is just another kind of sex - just with yourself. you wouldn’t think it was dumb if your…

I love this.

The moment you introduce the language of “deserving”, you invite others to judge just how deserving you are; and a right very quickly becomes a privilege. What makes the “debate” around Josie Cunningham so disturbing is that it refuses to even acknowledge the idea that access to abortion is a basic human right, or that women are entitled to choose what they do with their own bodies. If we fail to defend Cunningham, then we accept that only those women who are “deserving” enough should be allowed to have an abortion. And if we accept that, then it’s only a matter of time before others are deemed undeserving as well.

Women’s Rights, Classism, Reproductive Rights, Media… it’s all a big ole mess.

What we need to do most of all is stop making it all about us. When we cry out that we’re not like those other bad white feminists, we are making it about us. When we ask women of color to take the time to sit down and educate us on the specific issues that they face and how we can be better allies, rather than doing the research ourselves by reading blogs and articles and books by women of color, we are making it about us. When we ask why women of color need to be so divisive and whine that we’re all in this together, we are making it about us. When we decide to swoop in and play the hero without asking what type of help is, in fact, needed, we are still making it about us.

I kind of feel uncomfortable with the way the majority of this article is written, hopefully someone way more eloquent than me can explain why it’s off, but this is a good excerpt.

clevergirlhelps:

It aggravates me so much when I read about Asian characters. They are all described as having “black hair” and “narrow/angled eyes” and “yellow skin.” Worse still, Asians are not described at all. The author assumes that the reader will know what an “Asian” will look like,…

do men have resting bitch faces as well or do they not have negative characteristics ascribed to them for putting on a neutral rather than a deliriously happy facial expression

really though

if breasts, butts and legs are so distracting to men, to the point they cant function

why aren’t they that distracting to lesbians

and at that point

why isn’t the penis bulge and legs not distracting enough to gay men to warrant men being put under the same dress codes

Drag queen Panti Bliss has been nominated for several Pride of Ireland awards, after giving a heartwarming speech about oppression in January.
Rory O’Neill, who plays Panti, caused controversy in January this year when he labelled Catholic lobbying group the Iona Institute ‘homophobes’ on an Irish talk show, over their position on same-sex marriage.
The move prompted Irish state broadcaster, RTE, to award a payout of over €85,000 (£70,000) to the group and its associated journalists.
After the controversy, a heartwarming speech that Panti gave about the oppression that gay people face went viral, and was even sampled as part of a Pet Shop Boys track.
According to the Irish Mirror, Panti has been nominated for several Pride of Ireland awards, including for Lifetime Achievement, Bravery and Special Recognition.
Panti told the newspaper: “Hearing that people have nominated me, I’m astonished and delighted. But then I was astonished and delighted at the response my speech has received.
“I hope the action I took at the Abbey Theatre has gone some way to explain exactly what homophobia means in my life and in the life of many others.
“My only wish is that I’d have realised how far and wide my speech, what has been called the noble call, would have gone. I might have practised it a few more times to make sure there were no fluffs in the lines!”
The Pride of Ireland awards take place on June 3.
