Dr. Mary Walker ”believed that tight corsets along with voluminous skirts and petticoats were unsanitary and hampered her medical practice. So she didn’t wear them: first sporting bloomers, then, midway through the war, abandoning those for a male surgeon’s uniform. She didn’t attempt to pass as a man; she was an obviously female doctor wearing a male uniform…. She continued to wear men’s clothing throughout her long life (she lived until 1919) and continually advocated for rational dress reform for women.”

NOOOO NO NO NONO FUCK FUCK  FUCKIG CBS IS TELLING WOMEN NOT TO REPORT SEXUAL HARASSMENT BECAUSE IT WILL “DAMAGE THEIR CAREERS” and “HARASSMENT IS AN UNFORTUNATE PART OF CLIMBING THE LADDER” I AM SO ANGRY THEY ARE LITERALLY TURNING SEXUAL HARASSMENT INTO A NORM THIS IS NOT OKAY

This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.

IF YOU ARE SEXUALLY HARRASSED YOU REPORT THAT SHIT

That is AWFUL. Please report it when you’re sexually harassed. If not for yourself, to try to protect future victims.

FUCK THIS SHIT.

Look, I can understand circumstances where, yeah, reporting it is difficult and you would choose not to.  There are times when you literally HAVE NO OTHER CHOICE and it sucks, and those assholes are taking advantage of it.  Not every woman can put her source of income at risk like that, and the one thing the article gets right is that the laws DON’T always work, you are NOT guaranteed protection.

Which is why we need to keep fighting for better laws and better enforcement of policies.  Which is why when you CAN report it, you SHOULD and FIGHT against this mindset that it’s just something women have to deal with if we want to sit at the boys table.  Harassment is NOT just an inconvenience, it is dehumanizing, it is upsetting, it is a weapon used against women and it is BEYOND NOT OKAY. 

And of course: why the fuck are you acting like women should have to control whether they report it or not instead of the very basic fact that MEN SHOULD NOT BE DOING THIS?!?!

FUUUUUUUUUCK EVERYTHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING.

You said all the things I meant to say but didn’t while blinded with rage and flailing at the keyboard. :)

I’m sorry, “Shit sucks and the laws don’t really work, so stay quiet and suck it up” is a HORRIBLE FUCKING ARGUMENT. If the laws don’t really work YOU FUCKING MAKE SOME NOISE AND MAKE PEOPLE CHANGE THEM. 

And I’m going to agree with NewAgeAmazon: there needs to be a lot more “Dudes, don’t do this shit” out there. LOTS more.

OH. FUCK. NO. CBS. Unacceptable.

Blue world
This amazing image is part of a series of maps in a manuscript from the 1460s. What is striking is not just that we can so clearly recognize Europe, Asia and Africa, but that these continents are depicted so incredibly beautifully, in deep blue and gold. The map seems to float in space and above it various winds are blowing, produced by men with toy trumpets. Clouds are quietly drifting by. Who can resist jumping in and becoming part of this intoxicating blue world?

“I think the concept of virginity was created by men who thought their penises were so important it changes who a woman is.”

Unknown

The most perfect conclusion about how “virginity” came to be I’ve ever encountered.
