I made a political cartoon for English class about issues in school
It focuses on how teens are expected to make career defining choices with barely any experience, and also how parents often take so much authority that their child’s decision is not actually their own
If this gets some notes then I’ll make a colored version
Tumblr, we need you! A rogue Arizona State representative, John Kavanagh, wants to pass a bill that would thow trans people in jail for using public restrooms. Anyone could be asked for I.D. to “prove” their gender, and if there’s a discrepancy they could face a fine or jailtime.
When asked why the bill targeted trans people, Kavanagh explained that it’s because he thinks “they’re weird.” Outrageous.
We can stop this bill by taking action at www.allout.org/arizona and spreading the word far and wide. Will you help?
You guys please reblog this and spread this like wildfire. This is where I live and I would hate to see the trans people of my state not be abLE TO FUCKING PISS BECAUSE OF THE GENDER THEY IDENTIFY WITH
Something for my feminist theory class.
I’d love to see the reactions to this from a crowd. I can kind of imagine a quiet, solemn understanding from the ladies and a lot of confused questions from the guys… If my memory of art school serves me.
In 9th grade English we read Laurie Halse Anderson’s “Speak”. For those of you who haven’t read it, the author makes it abundantly clear that the teenage protagonist, Melinda, was raped, before the protagonist actually says it.
Our English teacher asked the boys in the class what happened to Mel. They came up with the most ridiculous answers. Every girl in the class just knew.
This just goes to show…
Not all men menace women, but yes all women have felt menaced by a man.
Every girl understands this because every girl knows the fear implicit in this image.
kosmic-kid said: Hi! I totally support the movement to love and embrace every body type! My problem is that when I try to share that belief with people I'm always faced with someone that says that teaching heavy people to love their bodies "encourages an unhealthy lifestyle" wondering if I can get some advice on how to rebuttal that argument
There’s a lot of stuff on the FAQ actually if you check it out on the homepage or just click here http://stophatingyourbody.tumblr.com/FAQ
The rebuttal to that is pretty basic: People come in different shapes and sizes, health looks different on every body. Some people are healthier at heavier weights, others being slimmer, often times, our weight is not at all correlated to our health. However, if someone is living unhealthy lifestyles (no matter their size) or has some type of health problem, that is their business alone. Not your body, not your business. Do you really think it would be beneficial for one with a health problem to have low self-esteem as well? No way. Everyone has a right to live without prejudice being thrust upon them, everyone has a right to a happy and body positive life, no matter where they are on their journey.
On the contrary, my dear anonymous, I can be whatever you want me to be. ;)
Or even a lamp:
oh yes, especially a lamp.
WHY DO YOU LIVE IN MY ROOM
WHAT IS GOING ON
It would have been nice if you told me before you started living on my bookshelf.
OH MY GOD
