Fuck slut shaming.

It’s not slut shaming, it’s called self respect. You just don’t show your breasts all the time, they’re privates. Shut the fuck up.

why should anyone’s nipples be such a big deal though? it’s a bit weird to say that it’s okay for men to be shirtless and not women… I respect myself quite a bit and sometimes I’ve posed topless. it doesn’t make me a bad person and if someone loses respect over me showing a body part that literally everyone has, they’re regressive.

The reason breasts are considered “privates” is because misogynist culture oversexualizes the female breast despite it not being a sexual organ. The fact the males can go around shirtless in most public places (even if they are large enough to have breast-like pecs themselves) and females can’t is sexism, end of story.

Self respect isn’t about rather or not you show your breasts, it’s about being comfortable with your choices. If you want to pose topless, that’s okay. If you don’t, that’s okay too. What’s not okay is doing what the girls in the top picture are doing and saying you’re better than someone else because you choose one way and they chose another.

Telling women that they should be ashamed for choosing something that doesn’t hurt them or others (and by hurt them, I mean like choosing to do drugs or something like that), you are contributing to the patriarchy and oppression.

reblogs because yes

sorry guys I sort of have to reblog this

Can we give up saying ‘slut shaming’ though. Either use ‘sex shaming’ or ‘misogyny’. Reclaiming the slur ‘slut’ is an individualistic choice, not something you can apply overall. Just a general PSA.

This. So much this.

cambridge university students were asked on campus why they needed feminism. here are 60 answers. click the link for over about 600 more. 

I’m crying, this is the most beautiful thing I’ve seen all week

Reblogging AGAIN because just last week my brother ‘liked’ a picture on fb in which a woman explained why she does NOT need feminism. Her reasons included (among others) “I make my own decisions and I’m in charge of my body and I don’t nee ‘epowering’” … “I like men and refuse to demonise them” …
I just couldn’t get over the extreme ignorance and stupidity of this woman and, the fact that my own brother liked it lets me know he TOO is ignorant to the true nature of real feminism and has been on the receiving end of man-hating extremists.

So yeah, reblogging because it STILL needs to be seen and heard.
