it’s so weird that people are shaming Beyonce for being sexual during her performance when literally in the speech in flawless says “We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are." Like how do you miss the point that bad
The worst thing about the anti-vaxxer movement is that people have been forced to put millions into developing things like thimerosol free vaccines, which aren’t even safer than normal ones, so that the anti-vaxxers don’t cause public health problems by refusing to take them. And that money could have gone on much more important things, like developing vaccines for diseases that kill people because we don’t have vaccines for them.
society teaches young women as soon as they are born not to be assertive, opinionated, and vocal or else be seen as bossy/a bitch and then gets mad and confused when women wont outright say where they wanna go for dinner or watch on tv lol
my aesthetic is looking mean as hell but being the nicest warmest person you ever met so you feel terrible for judging and become a better person thru it all
What may seem like ‘productive discussion’ or ‘lively debate’ feels like an attack on your identity and validity as a human being when it comes from a person in a position of power who is telling you how to react to something that upset you. When a disabled woman, for example, expresses anger about something that is going on in the news and nondisabled people tell her there’s nothing to get upset about, or she doesn’t know the whole story, or she doesn’t know how hard caregivers have it, what she’s hearing is that disabled people aren’t human beings. That not only does she not have the right to be angry about, say, a case of horrific abuse of a disabled person by a ‘caregiver,’ but that she’s so unimportant that her voice, her opinions, and her experiences don’t matter.
