He designed this special shoes, shared between him and his paralyzed daughter just to make her feel the sensation of walking.

WEEP DAFEELS PENETRATE ME

Oh my goodness

This is probably so good for her body, too! Imagine her muscles getting moved in ways they don’t normally and she is upright and hopefully not having any pressure spots! This is lovely in so many ways!

This is a wonderful invention, but the man in the picture is one of the testers. He is not the inventor. The inventor was an Israeli woman named Debby Elnatan who developed this with an Irish company for her son.

^this is important.
a woman invented this but this man is getting recognized for it all over social media (ive seen this in other places taking about what a great father he is for inventing this). give the lady some cred people. awesome invention tho (:

Oppression is cooking being “women’s work,” while the overwhelming majority of top restaurant chefs are male.

Oppression is fashion being a “silly girl thing,” while the top earning designers and CEOs in fashion are male.

Oppression is reducing women to consumers profiting a male system, even in fields that we supposedly dominate.

this is so fucking important.

"Um, you can’t be a woman because you don’t have breasts"
There are cis women who don’t have breasts
“You’re not a woman if you don’t give birth”
There are cis women who can’t or don’t give birth
“You only have that body because of hormones”
There are cis women who take hormones
“Because of surgery!”
There are cis women who have cosmetic surgery
There are cis women who have body hair, who have facial hair, who don’t menstruate, who are taller, who are more muscular, who play sports, who have deep voices, who don’t like wearing dresses, who only wear dresses, who suck at doing their own hair and makeup, who play video games, who watch violent movies, who take up space and who refuse to silence themselves for the sakes of others.
When you police trans women, you police all women.

This headline and article had me fuming. They focus the readers attention on appearance again - rather than the good the person (in this case, Anne) is doing. I think it’s disgusting how newspapers pick us up on little details such as our makeup - rather that just report good deeds. Does anyone remember seeing the articles about the actress who saved people from drowning, yet all they focused on was her nipples that slipped out as she pulled them from the water?
Stop focusing on appearance and forming your articles in such a fashion to gain attention, it belittles the good that others do.

We really need to mention her lack of make-up? Really? She flew to Tennessee to spend the day with patient’s in a children’s hospital. Let’s focus on that.

Bay Area Rosie the Riveters honored by Rep. Pelosi

My favorite parts:

Morrison enjoyed a moment in the national spotlight Monday when she kissed Obama on the lips at their White House meeting.

"It think it was fine," she said, her eyes sparkling. "It was good for me."

and:

"The reason I was writing was because this whole country has monuments to the contribution of military veterans, but nothing about us," Gould said.

"A Sticky Situation" (1960) by Carl Barks

I like how advertising is literally still exactly as sexist as they’re joking about in this comic from 54 years ago.

nothing makes my skin crawl quite like the word “alleged” attached to stories about sexual violence

Or “accuser”

I read an article about the charges being dropped from that wrestling coach from Steubenville, the one who was charged with not reporting the…

It’s a libel thing. You can’t print that somebody did a crime until they are convicted.

What did I just say? Two people in the Steubenville case were convicted of rape, yet when the videos and photos were referenced in the article, the person who wrote the article said that it “appeared” the girl was being raped. No, it didn’t appear as though that happened. It was evidence of a crime that led to two convictions. No, words like “alleged” and “appeared” and “suspected” aren’t just used before the trial is over to avoid prejudice and libel. For some reason, when it comes to rape, the media still treats rapists like they might be innocent, even after they’re convicted.

"I think every woman at one point or another in their life has been called a bitch. For a long time I had a real problem with that word, I didn’t like it and I thought it was derogatory. But I’ve gotten to a place now where I’ve made a lot of peace with it. It’s been so overused and made to seem so derogatory towards woman that I’ve adapted it into an empowering feeling for myself. If I’m a bitch then I’m a bitch, if that’s what an assertive woman is to you. So I’ve sort of adapted it as a badge of honor."
