8AM

I started questioning gender-based assumptions when at eight I was confused at being called “bossy,” because I wanted to direct the plays we would put on for our parents—but the boys were not.

When at 14 I started being sexualized by certain elements of the press.

When at 15 my girlfriends started dropping out of their sports teams because they didn’t want to appear “muscly.”

When at 18 my male friends were unable to express their feelings.

I decided I was a feminist and this seemed uncomplicated to me.

But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word.

Apparently I am among the ranks of women whose expressions are seen as too strong, too aggressive, isolating, anti-men and, unattractive.

Why is the word such an uncomfortable one?

I am from Britain and think it is right that as a woman I am paid the same as my male counterparts. I think it is right that I should be able to make decisions about my own body. I think it is right that women be involved on my behalf in the policies and decision-making of my country. I think it is right that socially I am afforded the same respect as men. But sadly I can say that there is no one country in the world where all women can expect to receive these rights.

No country in the world can yet say they have achieved gender equality. These rights I consider to be human rights but I am one of the lucky ones. My life is a sheer privilege because my parents didn’t love me less because I was born a daughter. My school did not limit me because I was a girl. My mentors didn’t assume I would go less far because I might give birth to a child one day. These influencers were the gender equality ambassadors that made who I am today. They may not know it, but they are the inadvertent feminists who are. And we need more of those. And if you still hate the word—it is not the word that is important but the idea and the ambition behind it. Because not all women have received the same rights that I have. In fact, statistically, very few have been.

I have an idea for a social experiment. I started using OKcupid a month or so back, and in order to see what other guys were doing, to see what I was “Up against”, I asked a female friend of mine to join up as well, and send me the sort of messages she received. Unsurprisingly, things got pretty creepy pretty quickly, and I felt bad for having convinced her to do it. So i gave her a picture of my face doing something odd, and told her she could send it to anyone who was particularly creepy.
It started out as a joke, but then she told me that she had sent it to at least 20 guys, and they had fucked right off immediately, either thinking she was a man, that she was “Spoken for”, or just because they didn’t expect it. It was both highly amusing and depressing that my face had become a sort of symbol of her ability to say “NO” and be listened to, but it gave me an idea.I’m interested to see if other women who are also having these troubles on the internet, and are tired of dealing with them rationally and instead just want to fuck around, would be game to also send that pic of my face to unwanted admirers. My last name is Middleditch, so perhaps we can call it “Getting Ditched” (Or MiddleDitched, I’m not that fussed).
Anyway, here is the picture, I hope you consider this worthy of your time. And perhaps, if this somehow takes off, I’ll get to see more responses from unsuspecting Fellows.
All the best
Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes. YES. You are an excellent human being for thinking of this and being cool with your photo getting sent out to creeps and douchenozzles. 
READERS! Consider sending the above photo the next time you get an awful OKC message, and pretty please tell me how it goes. 
I love this, thank you for sharing!

Ahahahaha yes!

This is Sam Pepper. If you don’t know who he is, Sam is a successful YouTube prankster with over 2 million subscribers. He recently uploaded a video titled “Fake Hand Ass Pink Prank" where he pinched unsuspecting girls’ butts without their permission. None of this was done with the girls’ consent…meaning Sam Pepper sexually harassed and assaulted these women.

This is no longer a “simple, harmless prank” but rather a very serious matter and offence. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can watch, dislike, and report it HERE. You can also take the pledge to help stop sexual violence at itsonus.org. Please do not let Sam get away with this kind of behavior. He crossed the line and needs to be held responsible for his disgusting actions.

What I love about social justice white people

juxtapiration:

is every time my friend gets stop to be told off by some white person, very rudely, how his tattoo of a dreamcatcher is racist and insensitive to the Native American people and should removed/apologize/be ashamed.

He is Native American and they confuse him for Mexican every time, and he just states “But I got this at the reservation I lived in for 15 YEARS.” and proceeds to falsely place a curse of his ancestors on them.
