seriously, though&#8230;when people claim they&#8217;re abiding by the old Constitution and then turn around to deny minorities rights, that&#8217;s a little, well, ridiculous.

NIMBY = not in my backyard. 
I came up with this PP after reading a great article discussing early-onset puberty in disadvantaged communities of color to the higher levels of BPA and other hormone-disrupting chemicals that are present in these neighborhoods.

not that i should have to defend myself, but there have been a few people who find the latest “Sexism” caption offensive.

here is the reasoning behind it:

yes, i know that institutionally men very much have the upper hand and women have no power to discriminate against men — technically.

but feminism isn’t only a defense of women’s rights: it’s also a defense of the deconstruction of the gender binary that leads to outright discrimination of members of all genders.

men have standards to which they are held, too, and if they do not live up to those standards, they are ostracized and emasculated.

in fact, ANYONE of ANY gender who deviates from said binary suffers those or similar consequences.

the gender binary is a great evil that affects everyone, and it paves the way for other forms of discrimination; against queerness, for example.

i found these posts on the girlsaretheworst.tumblr.com thing and decided to point out the utter bull shit they convey with my own additions (in red).
it&#8217;s complete and utter bull shit; a clear example of the contradictory and wildly ignorant, irrational thinking that helps perpetuate negative body image and sexism.
i&#8217;m so fucking pissed off right now.
i can&#8217;t even.
blurgh.
somebody hug me.
