Friendly reminder that Sirius Black was thrown into azkaban to live amongst the dementors the day after his best friend was murdered

when he was 21.

And the whole world believed him to have killed his best friend.

No, because minimum wage isn’t meant to be lived on!

The FUCK is it for then? Why in god’s name do you work, if not to afford to live?

Licia Ronzulli, member of the European Parliament, has been taking her daughter Vittoria to the Parliament sessions for two years now.

Every time this is on my dash, it’s an automatic reblog.

Keeping a breastfeeding parent with their child matters. Society benefits both in the short and long-term when nursing dyads are respected and cared for.

Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan

Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.

You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.

As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.

Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.

My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.

You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.

So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.

oppression is not a competition

thank you so much for this wording

And jackasses who use tragedies like this as a “GOTCHA FEMINISTS!!” card hardly care about South Asian women. 

It’s not a pissing contest to see who’s worse off. Removing autonomy, removing agency from women, shaming our bodies, shaming our existence in any form is unacceptable.

Creating oppression as a competition between women, rather than focusing on the global issue of women’s rights is a derailing tactic. If we fight amongst ourselves about whose situation is the most lamentable, then we won’t focus on addressing the root of our woes: the men who oppress us both personally and through the institutions they run.

"Oppression is not a competition."

Telling black people not to be enraged when their children are ruthlessly murdered, is violence.

Childbirth preparation classes

fuckyeahsexeducation:

  • It’s like practicing for a sport, don’t expect yourself to play in a game if you’ve never practiced.
  • If you want a natural birth, avoid classes hosted by hospitals. You may feel left out and they may not be able to cater to your needs.
  • Ask a midwife or doula to recommend classes
  • It’s a great way to connect with your birth partner, even if you’ve given birth before.

All of these points. All of them.
