This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

This is why I refuse to participate in or smile on the pinkwashing bullshit surrounding breast cancer “awareness” campaigns.
This is really insulting and absolutely horrifying to have as a campaign in light of the fact that many people (women or men) beat breast cancer by having their breasts removed. Indeed mastectomies are often life saving or at least greatly life extending.
So if the person lived but the tatas didn’t make it, would they consider that a failure?
If you have ever said or thought or seriously participated in a “save the boobies” thing, go die in a fire. Just go. You deserve it.

just be gender unspecific shouldn’t it be “save the person not the mammaries” but w/e


True true. That’s the thing, breast cancer knows no gender. It’s just that cis women are the dominant face of it, and that’s not right at all. Thanks for calling me on that.

Fake “Clinic” Cons 17-Year-Old Girl

prolongedeyecontact:

An Indiana mother recently accompanied her daughter and her daughter’s boyfriend to one of Indiana’s Planned Parenthood clinics, but they unwittingly walked into a so-called “crisis pregnancy center” run by an anti-abortion group, one that shared a parking lot with the real Planned Parenthood clinic and was designed expressly to lure Planned Parenthood patients and deceive them.

The group took down the girl’s confidential personal information and told her to come back for her appointment, which they said would be in their “other office” (the real Planned Parenthood office nearby). When she arrived for her appointment, not only did the Planned Parenthood staff have no record of her, but the police were there. The “crisis pregnancy center” had called them, claiming that a minor was being forced to have an abortion against her will.

The “crisis pregnancy center” staff then proceeded to wage a campaign of intimidation and harassment over the following days, showing up at the girl’s home and calling her father’s workplace. Planned Parenthood’s clinic director reports that the girl was “scared to death to leave her house.” They even went to her school and urged classmates to pressure her not to have an abortion.

The anti-choice movement is setting up these “crisis pregnancy centers” across the country. Some of them have neutral-sounding names and run ads that falsely promise the full range of reproductive health services, but they dispense anti-choice propaganda and intimidation instead. And according to a recent article in The New York Times, there are currently more of these centers in the U.S. than there are actual abortion providers. What’s more, these centers have received $60 million in government grants. They’re being funded by our tax dollars.

[Emphasis mine. Hear that folks? We are funding terrorists with our tax dollars. The fact that this is legal is absolutely mind-blowing. And when we dare complain, they cry about how they’re being persecuted and censored unfairly, and we’re infringing on their freedom of speech. No, just no. This should not be fucking allowed.]

ETA: Some people in the notes were wondering about the veracity of this story so I found the original source (the citation above was all that was given at the website I got this from). Here’s some more quotes from the original story:

We [Planned Parenthood] have obtained permission to share some of the remarks the patient and her family wrote soon after their encounter with the CPC.

"I have been getting phone calls [from the CPC volunteer] at home and on my cell phone, and they came to my work… saying ‘we will come get you and throw you in a car and take you to a place that is safe.’  I made my decision [to have an abortion].  Even though I had talked to [the CPC person] before, she has no right to be giving out information about me [and my family].  They need to quit harassing me and my family and loved ones.  They have come to my home banging on my door and non-stop calling me.  I have heard racial comments about my boyfriend [and me].  They keep yelling my name, my mother’s, and my boyfriend’s.  They have no right giving out my information, and they need to respect my and my boyfriend’s decision. … They are trying to trap me but this is my decision and no person has forced me and I would like them to stop harassing me, my family, my boyfriend, and my work."To Dash

Her mother added:

"These people have given [our personal contact] information to someone at [my daughter’s] school.  Now it seems even the students know certain things and are giving my daughter and her boyfriend a hard time as well.  Also, the faculty has heard things, too.  These people [the CPC personnel] have been standing outside Planned Parenthood yelling obscenities at all who enter.  My daughter’s, her boyfriend’s, and my name have been yelled out for all to hear."

ETA #2: You might also be interested in this post I did awhile ago on more recent investigations of CPCs and their deceptive tactics.

Denying a teenage girl her bodily and mental autonomy, harassing herself, her family and friends, stalking her, sharing her private contact information, making racist comments, threatening to kidnap her, and using intimidation and manipulation to force their beliefs on those who disagree. This is the anti-abortion movement when you give it money and power.  How very “”“pro-life”“”.

Every time a cis person reblogs a gender of the day a fairy dies

srsly cis friends

[Image: A screen cap of text that reads: “Q: How do you feel about cis people reblogging your post?” with the answer: “Well I’m ok with cis people liking posts and following the blog, or recommending it to friends, but I’d really rather they didn’t reblog, because it sends a different message. When a cis person does it, it looks like they’re making fun of trans people. When a trans person does it, it’s making jokes about yourself, which is fine. The context of who’s doing it makes a huge difference. Asking cis people not to reblog is not discrimination or “cisphobia”. It’s simply asking that we can have one little thing just to ourselves, since trans people as a group are not afforded rights, compassion, or respect in society at large.”]

it’s in their FAQ stating specifically for you not to reblog the gender of the day. genderoftheday is a blog for non-cis people, their posts are for non-cis people. please respect that.

Take 5 minutes out of your morning/night to educate yourself on this young man LL. The brother was LYNCHED. “Crackertown”, North Carolina. Been gone since the morning of Aug. 29th. Day of his first football game of his senior year. All that hard work in the summer for nothin’. #JusticeForLennonLacy

This needs more light..

A little more information, 17-year-old Lennon Lacy was found hanging from a swingset on August 29th and cause of death was identified as asphyxia due to hanging. Police are calling it a suicide - as in no foul play involved. HOWEVER, Lacy’s mother, while looking at her dead son in the body bag, noticed a lump on his head that she hadn’t seen the day before. It was not noted in the autopsy. He was also found wearing different shoes, not the size 12 gray and neon green Jordan’s he bought a few days before, but a pair of 10.5 white sneakers with the laces removed that his family did not recognize.
Lacy was also in a relationship with a 31-year-old white woman. They were forced to lie about their relationship because in the small North Carolina town of Bladenboro, where 86 Black people were lynched between 1882 and 1968, an interracial relationship between a 17-year-old and 31-year-old caused some “tension”. Lacy’s neighbors were instructed by police to take down a confederate flag and sign that read “N*****s Keep Out’.
Just days after Lacy’s funeral, his grave was desecrated, taking the flowers 40 feet away from his burial site and digging a hole in the plot. (x)
Keep doing research. Keep spreading the word. Don’t forget him. #JusticeForLennonLacy
