if anybody asks me why i hate men, i’m just gonna redirect them to this post.
it’s pretty fucking obvious that men only want to invest in breast cancer research to further degrade, objectify, and jerk off to body parts they already feel 100% entitled to. that’s what is at stake for them.
what about the women whose “tatas” weren’t saved? how must they feel being surrounded by awareness ads that focus more on keeping women’s sexy-sexy-titties-to-continue-titillating-the-males than saving real life human beings and helping survivors?
If anyone’s wondering, those posts came from here. It’s a forum for breast cancer support. Give it a read, and you’ll see how many women are outright abandoned by their husbands, sometimes after being married for decades, because their “tatas” couldn’t be saved.

omg you are rocking this so much h o w
aaaaah thank you???
and um. I DON’T KNOW. I just sorta… read a couple of sites and then started trying things and it worked out more or less????
skills I didn’t know I had: tichel-tying.
There’s a new trend taking over the social media pages of young British Muslims, and it’s targeted right at the Islamic State.
As Mic has previously reported, there’s something troubling about calling this terrorist group the “Islamic State,” since they do not accurately represent Islam or Islamic beliefs, but a twisted and perverted interpretation of the global religion.
So to combat this, young activists, led by Britain’s Active Change charity, are telling the terrorists to stop acting under the banner of Islam by circulating the hashtag #NotInMyName and calling out the group for “hiding behind a false Islam.”
I am so fucking sick of this
I am sick to fucking death of it
I’m sick of the fact that western islamophobia has reached such a stage that Muslims have to constantly reassure you bigots that we’re not terrorists and don’t go home planning to bring down western society any time there is any self-styled jihadist group starts committing the most unspeakable atrocities.
Why do we have to do this?
Every single fucking time, we have to actively denounce every single bomb and every single bullet fired in the Muslim world lest it be used as proof of our inherent violence and brutality.
We don’t want to do this; we don’t want to engage in these kinds of campaigns and don’t want to have to constantly reassure you close-minded fucks that we have no plans for violent proselytisation.
This is YOUR damn problem. It’s YOUR fault that you can’t look at us without seeing terrorists.
I’m sick of apologetically pandering to non-Muslims in the west and I’m sick of being expected to be constantly wearing a hangdog expression whenever this happens.
YOU are the bigots that create fear and paranoia around Muslims and around Muslims exclusively.
Where is the call for every single Sri Lankan to denounce the Tamil Tigers?
Are the Irish constantly demanded to apologise for the actions of the IRA in the past?
Is every single Jewish person called upon to actively criticise Israel for one of the longest running genocides of modern times?
Which other group is considered to be little more than a group of pseudo-sleeper agents waiting to pounce upon the ‘hospitality’ of western nations and usher in a world where non-Muslims are treated as Muslims are treated now?
I am sick to the absolute back teeth of you people.
It is shitty as hell that this is necessary. :c
ngl I am loving the tichel looks I’ve been able to pull off this week just with two sale rack scarves from Walmart. (Did I mention I’ve been covering my hair? No? I have been. I have no idea if it will last, and it’s not required by Reform beliefs and practices, but it feels like the right thing to do and makes me feel pretty.)
Imagine how awesome it will be one day in the far far future when I can afford to order some stuff from Wrapunzel? (Their scarves are gorgeous and I very much crave the no slip band and the shaper.) Aaaaah!
Loving the colours. I know in the past I’ve been seriously tempted to use scarves like that. Not for religious reasons, but because I have major sensory DNW issues to do with flyaway hairs tickling my face. I end up scratching myself if I’m not careful, so my hair is always pulled back or tied up.
A friend of mine converted, oh, about ten years ago? And they decided to cover their hair, and they ended up weaving a bunch of their own head scarves on their lap loom. Pretty fucking awesome.
Thanks! Purple’s my fave color, and that nice purple/teal peacock-y color combo is a close second.
Yeah, it’s a nice added bonus that I don’t have to deal with flyaways in my face! :D Or worry that my hair looks awful because I didn’t have the spoons to shower/had to drive for an hour with the windows down bc our AC doesn’t work and we live in Florida.
HOLY CARP that sounds really awesome, I would probably not have the money or the patience to weave my own scarves but it would be SO AWESOME. In the meantime, I just dream of owning some of the pretty things from Wrapunzel bc 1) nice tichel underwears basically to help it keep its shape and not move, and 2) LOOK HOW PRETTY!
Commission of Wonder Woman and She-Hulk hanging out for shulkiesmash!
themightyglamazon now that I’m working out and hulking up here’s another cosplay idea.
I call dibs on Shulkie. I think I’m going to wind up bulkier than you.
Is that a challenge?
Lol that would be best actually because I could do your makeup. And I wanna do Wonder Woman one day anyway.
In the meantime I NEED THIS BROMANCE
There is no challenge here :| Even when you’re all muscles, you’re hella strong but still skinny.
When I actually exercise I drop weight and hulk up on muscle like you wouldn’t believe. idk why, metabolism stuff maybe. Also stockier frame.
But yes. Shulkie and Wondy, let’s do it. And I would need your help on the makeup to make it even and make sure we properly set that shit so I don’t get it all over.
I wanna get an airbrush gun for even bodywork. You can use those with cans of compressed air so I actually can travel with it.
I dunno that sounds like a challenge which involves me getting to eat delicious bulking-up shit like peanut butter and chocolate and now it may be onnnnnn.
I can judge this competition. Especially if it involves me getting to see the gun show.
an important factual presentation by me
All the facts.
Not ALL the facts. If we were doing ALL the facts, you wouldn’t have used a GREEK WOMAN as an example.
Cleopatra was a member of the Ptolemaic dynasty, a family of Greek origin that ruled Egypt after Alexander the Great's death during the Hellenistic period.
This is a bust of Cleopatra:
That is a very Greek face. I have seen a lot of Greek sculpture and that is very much the sort of faces I saw on most of those sculptures.
Now, if we want a female ruler of Egypt who was actually Egyptian, why don’t we go with Nefertiti?
Heck yeah, Nefertiti.
Or let’s grab these statues at the Temple of Ramses
Here are some actual black ancient Egyptians, y0.
The point is good and valid and should not be forgotten, but HOW ABOUT we not use a Greek lady to illustrate anything about the ancient EGYPTIANS, since she is not genetically Egyptian.
The national mobilization begins …. We are asking people all over the world to join us in #Ferguson and help us flood the city with the war cry for #justice4mikebrown and the countless other victims of police brutality … People from all over the world will be joining us !!!#JusticeforMikeBrown, #ArrestDarrenWilson, #BlackLivesMatter, #Ferguson
Q:How do you recommend Christian bloggers deal with the Jewish bloggers like nicejewishqueer who are bad mouthing Christianity and our Lord, trolling our pages and saying how much they hate Christianity. 4 Posts of mine have been hijacked by this person:(
Pray for them. For they do not know what they are doing. It is hard to just not confront them in anger , i understand that but we are to do such things in love . They are blinded and do not see that we do not inherit heaven by mockery or judging others believes it is by the relationship that we have with Christ, remember that we were going to get persecuted.. we already knew this, the important part here is that you remain focus on what is truly important. In Jesus.
OH MY GOODNESS WHAT IS MY LIFE
I legitimately cannot stop laughing right now wow get a grip christians
Guys, my suggestion is we block muvak and report her for harassment when we do. Honestly, I think she’s getting off on all the attention that we’re giving her, judging by her continued remarks, and we’re clearly not going to change her mind.
That’s my suggestion. I don’t expect the harassment reports will do anything, but at least we can try.
