It’s breast cancer awareness month and that means it’s time for a round-up of SocImages’ interrogation of breast cancer awareness month!

Our favorite finding? That the color pink actually makes women take breast cancer LESS seriously. Oops. That one’s first…

Rabbit Revolution, bring on the bunnies!

Sleepy Cat, Grumpy Cat, Snoopy the Cat. We get it. Cats are cute, but those mew-tants have lived their nine lives out in the Internet spotlight. Now it’s time for something cuter, smarter and bouncier to take the throne. Help us advance the species forward by voting for the rabbit you feel is best suited to take center stage in your search engine

You can vote here for the rabbit you think is best to take on internet cats and rule the internet for bunnies: http://www.mncompanionrabbit.org/internet-bunny

Also, there are three awesome bunny T-shirts for purchase (with the proceeds going to find forever homes for foster bunnies)

"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

But here is what I think you should know.

You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

Anonymous said: I'm really curious as to why you'd include "right wing" or evangelical" along with "slut shaming" or "racist" as if they go hand in hand. I'm a pretty liberal, vegan atheist, by the way. It just seems very exclusionary and misinformed and plain wrong to include those groups together, not to mention it seems to be asking for a certain bent from your readers. Do you want the truth and real plights or a conservative bad, liberals good take on teen issues. Something to question yourself about.

ibelieveyouitsnotyourfault:

Conservatism is an ideology built around the preservation of “traditional” values and social structures. But those “good old days,” for marginalized groups like women and people of color, were largely a time of oppression. Why would we want to preserve them?

Conservative politicians and thinkers—who have seen great success aligning themselves with racist, xenophobic, and evangelical voting blocs—actively work to strip women of their voices and exclude us from seats of power, proudly champion policy that keeps women out of the workforce and chained to the “traditional” family structure, promote abstinence-only education, shame and blame the victims of sexual assault, and give no credence to the possibility that women are best placed to make decisions about our own bodies.

Broadly speaking, conservatism is bad for women. So, yes, we want a “conservative bad, liberals good take on teen issues.” That is the explicit purpose of the site.

If kids want a “traditional,” victim-blaming, slut-shaming, conservative perspective, many of them can already get that at home or at school. This site aims to provide a counterpoint to that oppressive narrative, for the kids who have none and are struggling because of it.

So, i read this awful article using bathroom “scare tactics,” which was claiming that trans women are potential rapists. “Men” who dress as women to gain access to women only spaces and force them self on women. This really upset me and i had a bit of a Twitter rant. They were read by others and i was urged to post them in other media also, so i am posting them here. (Edited together in easy reading format from top to bottom.)

This is the link in the first tweet about how there are no cases of a trans woman attacking a cis woman in public restrooms: Link 1.

This is the link in the second tweet about the cases where trans people are assaulted in the bathroom by cis people: Link 2.

if you’re cis and you follow me i’m gonna need you to reblog this

i detest the masculine point of view. i am bored by his heroism, virtue, and honour. i think the best these men can do is not talk about themselves anymore.

This tweet means a lot to me.


Someone once told me on twitter to give up coffees for a week in order to afford something, so I replied with a picture of my jar of bulk, supermarket brand instant coffee.
