Just a fraction of the cool stuff I learned when researching women’s history.
I just wish Bessie Coleman’s features were more distinct.
Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever been a stripper?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever been to a strip club.
Oh—you wouldn’t date a girl who’s ever done porn?
In that case, I wouldn’t date a guy who’s ever watched porn.
You’re the reason we exist.
You’re the demand to our supply.
If you disdain sex workers, don’t you dare consume our labor.
As they say in the industry, “People jack off with the left hand and point with the right.”
An elegant meal for one, tonight.
There was a study done where they got a man to harass a woman in the park
and then they did it the other way around.
Several stopped the man but they let the woman slap and scream
and yank his hair.
They asked a professional who concluded that compared to men,
women aren’t seen as enough to be a threat.
My friend’s principal from three years ago
took his kids and ran
because he kept showing up to work
with bruises put there weekly by his loving wife
and everyone told him to take it like a man.
Last week I listened as a guy laughed off the idea
that a woman could violate him
and I thought of an interview on a news show
where they showed a boy who flinched inwards
every time a girl touched him
because of the exact reason the guy laughed off.
When compared to men,
Women aren’t seen as a threat
so men feel free to take whatever they like.
Women aren’t seen as a threat
so no one takes men seriously
when a woman
breaks them open.
it’s weird how i’ll marathon an entire series without stopping but if someone tries to make me watch a youtube video that lasts longer than 30 seconds all i can think is “i don’t have time for this”
u ever just get pissed off that all the marauders were in gryffindor?? or is that like? just me?
like a lot of times i wish i really wish sirius was in slytherin like the rest of his family and overcame the family name. but lets be real he’s more loyal than ambitious, “I WOULD HAVE DIED”. so like stick him in hufflepuff [can you imagine his mother’s face upon hearing that news?]. put peter and is love of those in power and wanting to rise along side them in slytherin. put remus in ravenclaw for the most obvious reasons okay. and leave james, who tried to hold off the dark lord sans wand to give his wife and child a chance to live, in gryffindor.
suddenly you’ve got someone in each house, a view of each house. like whatever this is probably asking a lot since we’re obviously supposed to demonize slytherin or whatever. bUT i always wanted more house diversity in the group u kno. can u imagine them all sneaking in and out of different house common areas. waking up in the wrong ones like ‘oh shit not again’. ravenclaw and puff house members thinking remus and sirius were the cutest couple yet to realize they were a couple.
#the teachers getting annoyed because they don’t know which house to take points from#sneaking into quidditch tryouts to cheer on James and getting kicked out#Other students coming up to them and giving them whatever they left in the common room the previous evening#eventually they give up and just leave it there#communicating via flue powder and falling asleep by the fire#Sirius leading Hufflepuff Pride groups at quidditch matches#and agressively wearing black and yellow#mostly to annoy his mother#but also because black looks good on him#and he doesn’t really fit into the whole bit in classes#but boy oh boy does he get something done if he puts his mind to it#except he’s terrible at riddles#and can never get into the Ravenclaw common room#but the knocker takes pity on him and gives him really easy ones#because it knows that he’ll just mope outside until it lets him in#and if he falls asleep in the hallway he’ll complain for DAYS#but sometimes when Remus is fighting with any of the maurauders it will give them SUPER HARD riddles just to lock them out
Even if your plan covers contraception, you might get charged anyway—insurance companies do that kind of thing. If you think you’re getting less than you’re entitled to, call your insurer directly to complain. If that doesn’t work, the National Women’s Law Center (866-PILL-4-US) can help you make your case. Visit their website at NWLC.org for a script detailing exactly what to say to your insurance provider and for help crafting an appeal letter.
That’s exactly what Papineau did when she couldn’t get her provider to cover her NuvaRing. She wrote letters to the insurance company and the Kansas Insurance Department. Six weeks later? When she picked up her NuvaRing prescription at the pharmacy, her receipt said $0.
