Churches have values, not laws. Don’t hide behind a faith in order to control or discriminate someone else.

becauseofthiswoman:

Name: Ida B. WellsDates: (1862-1931)
Why she rocks: She was an African American journalist, and newspaper owner that was an early leader in the civil rights movement. She documented the problem of lynching in the United States. She was very active in the women’s rights and women’s suffrage movements, establishing many women’s organizations and touring nationally to speak about them.
Quote: “I had an instinctive feeling that the people who have little or no school training should have something coming into their homes weekly which dealt with their problems in a simple, helpful way… so I wrote in a plain, common-sense way on the things that concerned our people.”Because of this woman… important civil rights issues were addressed, and as a result, banned. She was a stepping stone for women’s suffrage and women’s equality.

Don’t worry your pretty head. Legislating women’s health is man-talk.

BYU Honor Code

Utah: A student at Brigham Young University received what she thought was a love note Tuesday night, but was actually a letter questioning her compliance with the Brigham Young University Honor Code.

Am I the only one that thinks this guy needs to be called out for attempting to slut shame her? Look at what she’s wearing. I’ve seen grade school teachers dressed more provocatively.

I understand that this is BYU and an isolated incident on that campus, but what he has done is essentially told her that if she were to be sexually harrassed or assaulted it would be her fault, and not his for being unable to control himself. The fact that everyone is all giggles and smiles in this report highlights society’s response to slut shaming. Yes everyone agrees that he’s being ridiculous, but no one addresses the fact that these messages are often sent to victims for sexual assault. If she were walking around campus in a bikini and he was unable to control himself, that would also be about him.

There is nothing wrong with dressing conservatively. There is nothing wrong with dressing provocatively. I should be able to wear whatever I want, whenever I want. If someone appreciates the way I’m dressed, there’s also nothing wrong with that. If you don’t like what I’m wearing for you own personal and moral reasons, keep it to yourself. If you don’t like what I’m wearing because my outfit moves you past appreciation to acts of sexual inappropriateness, then YOU are the one with the problem. I know it may seem to some as if I’m making a big deal out of something that happened at a Mormon University, but the fact that it made the news moved it past the campus. These messages transcend a university dress code and roll over into the real world every single day.

No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your “religious freedom.”  If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it.  Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs.  - Barack Obama

oh, BO. You understand me. 

Boom.

“I am doing this for my Mother who earned 3 pounds 10 shillings for working a forty hour week in a weaving shed.”—Patrick Stewart
His mom was also an abuse victim and he’s an anti-domestic violence advocate.

Sir Patrick Stewart is, hands down, one of my favorite people.

I love this man with a passion. He’s an amazing person.

Reblogged to add source. Also to say that 3 pounds 10 shillings is worth about $53.

Just reminding people how awesome Patrick Stewart is.

Perfect human being.

I’m crushing pretty hard on Patrick Stewart now
