The whole post is really good, especially if you need a refresher course in How Not To Be Horrible
Community abuse & rape apologism is something that abusers WILL & DO rely on to allow their abuse to continue & to push the victim into spaces where they cannot talk about any past abuses that transpired. Read this whole post and work on NEVER being a friend who asks someone to hang out with their rapist or abuser.
bolding & re-reblogging.
Charlie, you are so good with words and people.
Gay man ≠ exempt from misogyny
Many people have already found my feature in Seventeen Magazine, so I am really excited to finally talk about this after hiding it for two months!
As of May 20th, I am the first Hijabi to be featured in Seventeen magazine. I’m really humbled and honored to announced that I’m working with Gucci, Beyonce for her campaign, Chime for Change and Seventeen Magazine to unite and strengthen the voices speaking out for girls and women around the world.
I would like to thank everyone who has constantly shown support, but more importantly thank God for all the opportunities, people and happiness He has bestowed upon me. Without Him, I wouldn’t be where I am today because He was able to help me become a better poet with my second family, my poetry slam team and my wonderful coach who helped me find my voice and believing in me. Thank you to my parents and siblings, as well as my friends for supporting me in everything I do. Thank you to Kevin Coval for Louder Than a Bomb, because if I had never competed, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Alhumdulillah, I really thank God for helping me by letting others see the best in me and hiding my flaws.
The issue is in stores all over the world, on itunes, amazon and kindle. Please make sure to buy a copy to show your support, it would mean so much! If you are unable to buy the magazine, here is a high-res scan of this article. There are videos of my poetry on youtube, you can search by typing in “ainee fatima”
I will be posting a video of my trip and photoshoot in a couple of days, make sure you look out for it. Thank you again to everyone for supporting me in everything I do, I wouldn’t be here without your support.
Brown women doing awesome things FOREVER.
from CNN.com, testimony by Evan Westlake, 18, a Steubenville football and baseball player
I didn’t know exactly what rape was… A fundamental issue of rape culture.
And there it is.
I don’t have the words to express how this makes me feel.
This is what we’ve taught them.
See what rape culture has wrought?
“I thought it was forcing yourself on someone”
Because we’ve been talking this bullshit about boogeymen jumping out of the bushes as the only rapist archetype.
I was literally just telling my housemate that this is one of the reasons why rape culture exists. People are not educated as to what constitutes rape!
Curious how often this happens.

And then you’ll see that it’s really men who are the irrational and hyper-emotional ones (p.s., anger is an emotion and males with an entitlement complex excel at expressing it, especially towards women and girls who don’t or refuse to succumb to his bullshit).
From StripperWeb with regards to how dancers feel about customers wearing sweatpants. (via katiesloane)
My first lap dance the guy unzipped his pants for “wiggle room”. It was my first so I thought it was normal. This is the kind of shit the club or other dancers should warn you about beforehand.
i’m gonna use this in my paper to justify the right of the oppressed to use violence
I found this nice tutorial/anatomy advice spread created by meghanhetrickof deviant art.
She gave me permission to post it up here to share so go make sure to visit her and look at her other creations of goodness!
I get what they’re doing here and I think it’s cool, but I mean it’s weird to be all “boobs come in all shapes and sizes!!” and then to shame people with implants whose boobs DO look more like all the “no” examples.
I do my best to draw diverse body types, and I very much support seeing more diversity in the way women are portrayed in art. But we can do that without shaming ladies whose bodies aren’t “natural”, because frankly they get enough shit anyway.
True. Reblogging again for corrections and commentary
“When you say “no,” and you mean “no,” and the other person, regardless of whether it’s in a situation where somebody wants to attack you or a situation where somebody wants to change your opinion…
When you say no, and the other person continues, you should think immediately — not “how do I make it nice, how do I make it better” — but immediately think why is this person trying to control me because “no” is a complete sentence.”
Oh Em Gee. I needed this today!
