“Pregnant women who choose not to continue their pregnancy do NOT owe it to the infertile to choose adoption. They are not brood mares for those who cannot bear their own children.”

-Christine Cugino

"They are not brood mares for those who cannot bear their own children."

There are nearly 400,000 children in foster care in the United States. Nobody is entitled to someone else’s pregnancy.

"What they are really saying is that they hate women. They hate women with opinions who are honest and angry."

I thought this was gonna be cissexist and then it wasnt

required watching

Please? The less of her on my TV, the better. There’s a reason why nearly every show she’s been on has been cancelled.

Actually both Firefly and The Sara Connor Chronicles were aired by FOX.  And FOX has bad luck when it comes to sci-fi shows….

The Cape wasn’t on FOX.

Never heard of that show.  I was just going  with the two more popular ones, sorry.

Uhm, actually, nearly every show she’s been on hasn’t been cancelled or if it was, it was for a completely different reason other than her just being on it. Without being said, Firefly, Dollhouse, and TSCC were cancelled because Fox is shit with Sci-fi. Whereas The Cape was cancelled because it wasn’t doing as well as they thought it would and because it was in fact a new show, they scrapped it rather than really giving it a chance. That and they wanted to clear out the schedule for The Event, which didn’t last long either.

Summer has actually been on Angel (which was taken off the air a full two seasons after her guest appearance, so it had nothing to do with her), The 4400 (which went on a long while after she first guest starred), The Unit (which also went on for a long while after he guest appearances), Chuck (also cancelled for a completely different reason, I’m pretty sure there was talks about it being cancelled before her guest appearance was even thought of), Alphas (not picked up for a third season because Syfy thought the ratings could have been better), Grey’s Anatomy (Which, as we all know, is still on the air), Hawaii Five-0 (also still on the air), an adult swim show that I can’t be bothered to find the name of right now (it was amusing to a point and yes, still on air), and now Arrow. Which is doing tremendously well and is not likely to be cancelled anytime soon.

So, while YOU may not like her, the people who track her tag do and take offense to the rude nickname you’ve given her (which is just mean because she’s never done anything to you personally in order to provoke that) and the inaccuracy of your statement, which has been addressed by more than one person more than once on various different platforms of social media before.

And while you did post it on YOUR blog and you do have the right to say whatever you want, here’s a Tumblr Top Tip: Don’t tag your hate. Even if it’s on your blog, if you tag it, everyone can see it. Especially the people who do love the person you’re tagging.

 #sorry guys  #this just pissed me off so i had to say something

Don’t apologise, Stepha. It was a disgusting thing O.P did. They deserve to be called out on their bullshit.

Fuck you very much for tagging your hate.

How often have you been shopping and you come across something that is just PERFECT, but does not go up to your size? Over 60% of American women wear a size 14 or above, but only 17% of clothing sold is 14 & up. That is a ridiculous disparity.
Moreover, when some brands move into plus (ahem H&M), they throw their signature trendy looks by the wayside in favor of flowy dark fabrics that they think “work” for plus sizes. That is crap. Plus size women want color, print, and structure. Moreover, we want variety. A group this numerous cannot be a monolith, and since style is such a personal thing, we all have different tastes. I want #plussizeplease to be a way to showcase the demand for styles we’d buy and rock, and all the money brands are forfeiting by refusing to expand their sizes.
So here’s how to use it:
1) Snap a picture of a garment you love but does not come in your size. Include the brand and price, tagging the company if possible. For example, I am in love with this Zara marble print dress. I would have purchased it yesterday if it went above a size L. My tweet would be:
“.@Zara marble print sheath, $59. I’d buy it right now if it came in my size. #plussizeplease”
2) Use it on any social media – Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest… even Facebook supports hashtags now.
3) Tag anything you’d purchase, whether in store or online.
4) Feel free to include the size range it comes in and/or the size you think you’d need. Sizing can be tricky, so this is definitely not required.
5) Tell your friends! I don’t just want this to be a blogger thing – I want all women who wear size 14 and up to show their purchasing power and share styles they love. Let’s be unignorable!

I’m interested in seeing what results of this movement. Not entirely sure I’d participate.

It’s 2:30 in the morning, my neighbour sounds like he wants to kill everyone in his presence.

God, I hope he does. 

“Male privilege is “I have a boyfriend” being the only thing that can actually stop someone from hitting on you because they respect another man more than they respect your rejection/lack of interest.”
--

The Sociological Cinema

There was actually research that was done that found that women who used an “I have a boyfriend/husband” excuse to reject unwanted sexual attention and harassment by their bosses were more likely to be left alone than those who used any other excuse (including “I’m not interested”)

Because men respect another man’s property (and that’s how they see us) than a woman’s autonomy.
