"We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves."

People that share wrinkle remover “before and after” photos have no understanding of lighting

Yes, if you go in softer light, the wrinkles will look lighter because THERE ARE NO SHADOWS.

Q

motherfuckingpee asked:

Can I ask your opinion of my boyfriend asking me to go on the pill because he finds condoms uncomfortable? I'm perfectly happy to go on it (have been before and it was fine) but I feel like it's such a bullshit/selfish reason. I honestly think I might go on it for myself and not tell him for a while. I mean it is MY body and he doesn't get to mess with my cycle and ughhhh

A

It’s not ok for him to expect you to go on the pill because he doesn’t like condoms, but I think it’s reasonable to bring it up. Like “hey, what do you think about going on the pill instead.”
But honestly- I think it’s best to use both. It’s better protection and easy clean up!

And (although no one likes to think about it) if your partner ever cheated or didn’t know he already had an sti, you want to be protected.

My friend disagrees with the idea of someone being agender unless they have social dysphoria and want to get surgery to remove their genitals. They say that it's just stupid and that by labeling one's self as agender you validate gender roles and it's ridiculous to call someone something other than him or her. I don't know how to convince her that agender people literally identify as neither a woman nor a man. What is your opinion?

thephotogfeminist:

Gender and sex are two separate things. Gender refers to a social role while sex refers to a biological fact. Gender is typically assigned by society based on sex. A female child is expected to be feminine and a male child is expected to be masculine.
Sex= male, female, or intersex
Gender= a spectrum between feminine and masculine personalities.
Most people do not fully identify with the gender assigned to them.
Explain to your friend that agender identity actually shirks gender roles more effectively because they are not conforming to the idea that female body= feminine gender. They are acknowledging that gender just refers to personality traits and preferences and don’t want to be labeled with the social pressures of the feminine or masculine gender. They would rather just be regarded as a person without a gender role.

I actually think that doing away with the idea of gender and having everyone use gender neutral pronouns would be better.

it really bugs me to see white protesters with “don’t shoot!” signs. it’s great that you guys have gone out to show solidarity but be honest with yourselves: you’re not getting shot, no cop will extrajudicially execute you. stay on the right message, draw attention to the fact that this is anti-blackness in action. demand justice. but don’t kid yourself into thinking you face the same danger as the black protesters standing next to you.

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

The comments left on any article related to Michael Brown are proof that racism is still alive and well. 

I want to puke all over my computer. 

Disgusting.

Q

Anonymous asked:

My boyfriend and I had a very active sex life until I contracted TB. I was hospitalized and given rifampin (antibiotic). Once I wasn't contagious anymore, I was discharged. As soon as I was up for it, my boyfriend and I started having sex again. I was still on rifmapin but I had heard that the rumor about birth control and antibiotics was untrue so I wasn't worried about condoms. It turns out that while most antibiotics don't mess with birth control, rifampin does. I felt SO stupid.

A

Oh my gosh! That’s definitely not your fault though. The doctors should have told you that!
