i think we all know this one person…

Okay, can we stop with this?
can we stop shaming girls who have been brainwashed to think they’re never good enough? Girls who develop poor body images and eating disorders? Girls who suffer because they truly believe they’re fat when they weigh 95 pounds?
Can we stop?
Those girls need love and support and positive affirmation, not your judgement and jealousy.

And as for the guys, c’mon. Even if a girl is surrounded by, DROWNING in suitors, it’s very possible that
1.) she’s still way way too hard on herself because that’s what every media outlet tells her she should feel
or
2.) that she’s constantly accosted by fucking creepers and wants to date someone who actually interests her
or
3.) none of those guys are right for her and that’s TOTALLY GODDAMN FINE

Sometime in the last 24 hours, fan artist euclase dropped off Tumblr and DeviantArt.

You’ve probably seen euclase’s stuff in at least one fandom, but here are a handful of examples:

Euclase is one of those people who seems, though no apparent individual fault beyond being…

Click the link to see the whole Anon hate clusterfuck and my friend’s powerful cursing of that crap.

Because really, how dare anyone pursue anything?  Or have a talent? Or make something that even one other person might enjoy?  And if people talk about it and like it … wow, they’re a fucking horrible human being aren’t they? How dare they do anything that might get attention?  Completely inappropriate, right?  They so need to be stopped, don’t you think?

Does this sound fucked up to you?  That’s because it is. 

People making shit? Not about you.

People’s work being well-received? Not about you.

Shit happening that is not you being literally or metaphorically assaulted? Not about you.

Something not to your taste? Fine! Be a critic, review in public, contribute to a conversation.

But sending someone anon hate and telling them that their work is bad, worthless or whatever?  NOT OKAY.

(Oh, and since this happened to someone else the other day and has also happened to me — don’t couch your anon hate as concern.  ”I just don’t want you to be embarrassed.”  It’s tacky, manipulative, abusive, and, p.s. makes you a liar.).

This is bullshit. These people are pieces of shit.

It makes me so sad that people that honestly think its okay in their heads to say such awful things to another person. ESPECIALLY AN AMAZING ARTIST.

It makes me even more sad that the population is mostly made up of these assholes. Unbelievable

When I was a freshman, my sister was in eighth grade. There was a boy in two of her periods who would ask her out every single day. (Third and seventh period, if I remember correctly.) All day during third and seventh she would repeatedly tell him no. She didn’t beat around…

According to a teacher at J.Law that my mom knows, she was apparently an honors student and was extremely motivated and had her plans for college all thought out. She wanted to go somewhere in life and now that was all cut short because some guy couldn’t handle rejection. This is tragic, and my heart goes out to her friends and family. I NEVER want to hear someone say that women have no reason to be afraid of men ever again.

I’m speechless… 

I’msoangry.

i’m so livid
and so fucking sad

it was done at school. And a teacher might’ve seen part of it happening. THAT. Really pisses me off. This makes me so sick

Chris Plaskon walked up to Maren Sanchez at 7:15 in the morning on the day of the junior prom and asked her to go with him. When she said no, she was going with her boyfriend—which he knew already—he stabbed her in the neck.
Which means, does it not, that he came to school carrying a knife, prepared to murder her if she said no.
This wasn’t about a sixteen-year-old being unexpectedly set off by rejection. He brought the murder weapon to the crime scene. And he made sure to ask her very early, when few people would be around.
I don’t know what his motive was—but it wasn’t the prom. He had the means and he created the opportunity.This was premeditated.

There’s something very, very wrong with this article.

No.
Why are they discussing how “great of a kid” he was? How he was strange, but never dangerous? How no one saw it coming even though he was obsessed with her for two freaking years.
He brought a knife with him to school that day.
He brought a knife with him that day, knowing good and damn well he would ask her to prom. He knew, when he brought that knife with him, that she would turn him down due to being in a relationship.
You asked a girl in a committed relationship out on a date, and then got angry and “snapped” when she acted on the fact that she was in a committed relationship and said no, instead of miraculously going against it and saying yes to you.
But we all know he didn’t really snap. No, not when he packed the murder weapon on you ahead of time. Not when he cornered her during a low traffic time. Not when he knew she was seeing someone. Not when he knew she’d say no. No, he knew what would happen, but felt so entitled to her and her body that when she dared to say no, he felt justified in taking her life so that no one else could have her.
But the media talks about his model family? How he was strange but funny and happy and a class clown who enjoyed making others laugh? How he was a nice guy? How devastated his family is?
His? The attacker? The murderer? The one who felt so entitled to someone just because he liked her that he felt justified in stabbing her because she dared to tell him no?
What about her? What about her family, who has to live day in and day out with the fact that this boy felt so entitled to their child that he felt entitled to determine whether she lived or died? What about them, who have to move forward without seeing her because some rude, selfish, evil thing couldn’t take the word no and planned to kill her as soon as he heard it? What about them?
You don’t get to stab an innocent girl in the neck and have the media humanize you. I don’t care if you were a little depressed now and then, I don’t care if you have ADD. No one cares that you seemed to be a well adjusted, cheerful kid and that your actions were “so unexpected.” 
You MURDERED someone for refusing your advances.
The media needs to STOP humanizing this evil, dangerous, selfish thing. It’s what’s wrong with the world.

This makes me so fucking sick

Young women are having difficulty accessing tubal ligation, despite it being a relatively safe (death rate is 1-2 per 100,000) and elective surgery.

There is a waiting period of 30 days for women seeking tubal ligation, yet no waiting period for men seeking vasectomies. 
(Source)


Young women are often discriminated against when seeking sterilization. Many doctors ask offensive questions (“What if you met a billionaire who wanted to have kids with you?”), state categorically that their patients are too young to consider the surgery, and generally act as though, as one woman who tried unsuccessfully to be sterilized at the age of 21 in the U.K. put it, ”just because I was a woman, I’d reach a point where an urge to breed would overcome all rational thought.” (Perhaps unsurprisingly, that woman’s 25-year-old husband faced no such presumptions when he asked his doctor for a vasectomy. The procedure was quickly approved.)
(Source)


Say that at 18 I slap down enough money so I could have my whole body covered head-to-toe in tattoos, piercings all over myself, a mountain of cigarettes, plastic surgery, and plan to have like 20 babies… but if I try at all to safely make it impossible for me to breed for the sake of my health suddenly its like WOAH THERE SLOW DOWN MISSY YOU’RE NOT READY FOR THIS KIND OF COMMITMENT YET

I have stage III Endometriosis, which means I have to get my uterus removed because I literally have terrible cramps ALL THE TIME and not just when I’m on my period. Now, I’ve always said I don’t want any children for personal reasons and I don’t need my uterus, really. I am not worried about that surgery and I don’t feel any kind of nostalgia over an organ I won’t ever use. 
The thing is, my doctor is a ‘man’. This ‘man’ told me I had to get pregnant right now before it’s too late. I told him I didn’t want to get pregnant and explained the multiple reasons but what, do you ask, did my doctor have to say about this? 'Well, better have a kid now because just imagine how depressing it must be being a thirty-something woman without children and a husband?'
I was diagnosed a year ago. I should have gone through surgery six months ago and I still can’t find a doctor that will perform the surgery without trying to force me to have children first. Basically, if you’re a woman you don’t have a say in what can and cannot be done to your body without a shitload of people getting in the way AND I’M FUCKING SICK OF IT.

Women are getting non-consensually sterilized in prison but no doctors in my area while tie my tubes at 24 because I might regret it? Fuck you, doctors. I have more purpose in life than dropping babies. Some of those women in prison are probably great moms and I have no interest in parenting. Let us have a say!

A dear friend of mine wanted to have her tubes tied.  She was about to give birth to twins and the doctors wouldn’t consent because she wasn’t 21 yet.  She had already had children and they still refused to let her have the procedure.

My friend got a vasectomy a week after asking his doctor for one, no problem. He was 25.
Me? I’ve asked 4 different doctors for some kind of permanent sterilisation—tubal ligation or Essure or whatever—and I get a pat on the head and a “You’d regret it if you did.”
Oh, DIDN’T REALIZE YOU HAD A DIRECT LINE TO MY BRAIN.

On the flip side, as a vagina-having person who had her tubes tied at the age of 26 (after having 4 children, however):
MY HUSBAND HAD TO SIGN A CONSENT FORM IN ORDER FOR ME TO HAVE THE PROCEDURE DONE.
How many times have we heard stories about husbands having vasectomies behind their wives backs and never telling them, letting those wives wallow in guilt and misery, thinking it’s their fault that they can’t get pregnant?
And yet I had had to get my husband’s permission to have my tubes tied.
(Obviously this was a decision we’d talked about extensively beforehand, so it’s not like he was about to say no, but we both couldn’t believe the fucking audacity of the hospital, asking HIS permission for ME to do something with MY body.  In fact, he said as much to the nurse that brought in the forms.)

I am 36. I’m single, I don’t have kids and I don’t want kids.
I also had horrendous, frequent periods. When I went to the gynaecologist, she recommended that we try a Mirena. I let her know that I’d had menorrhagia on a previous form of low-dose, oestrogen-only birth control (implanon), and that I was apprehensive that it wouldn’t work.
She said “Well, after that you’re out of options.”
I was incredibly upset. I was willing to try, but what if it didn’t work? Was I literally condemned to a life where I’m bleeding and in pain more often than not and I just have to put up with it?
I rang my parents. My Mum listened to me and said “That doesn’t sound right” and put my Dad (who’s a doctor, and a qualified obstetrician/gynaecologist) on the phone.
Apparently I was not out of options and she shouldn’t have said I was. The next option is a surgical D & C to see if that fixed it, and if that didn’t work, an ablation, which would have left me permanently infertile. If that didn’t work, a hysterectomy (although Dad warned me that I should do what I could to avoid the hysterectomy, it comes with a horde of other side effects.)
I don’t know whether it was fear, I don’t know whether it’s because I was a public patient. I don’t know what it was. But the gynae was so scared of female infertility that she wouldn’t even give me information about treatment options. I had to ask my father.
(FYI, the Mirena worked and I had a shouting row with the gynaecologist where I accused her of having her objectivity and medical judgement biased by the religion of her employers.)

I’m so lucky that my doctor is almost “pushing” sterilization on me. He’s super supportive and knows that I’m done having kids, but still don’t have anything permanent planned. 

I’m 23 and I’ve inquired about getting my tubes tied many times. But each time my doctor said I was not “old enough”. It is absolutely ridiculous, especially since I have a lot of health problems involving that area and history of problems during labour in my family. And still they won’t let me.
The need to have all women become mothers is one of the reasons why this planet is so damn over populated.
