Articulate Bitches

Two girls, one blog. One law student. One public admin grad student. One a vapid cunt. One a raging bitch. Social

Justice. Intersectional. Feminism.

"In the United States, access to tampons and pads for low-income women is a real problem, too: food stamps don’t cover feminine hygiene products, so some women resort to selling their food stamps in order to pay for “luxuries” like tampons. Women in prison often don’t have access to sanitary products at all, and the high cost of a product that half the population needs multiple times a day, every month for approximately 30 years, is simply, well, bullshit."

- The case for free tampons (via stuffmomnevertoldyou)

You know, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anybody suggest that toilet paper or paper towels in public bathrooms shouldn’t be free.  We’d consider it outrageous if that very basic necessity were to be missing, or provided only for purchase.

And yet.

"without us you wouldn’t have any rights!" without you we wouldn’t have to fight for them

Always this. Always.

"Remember that men gave women the right to vote!"

And remember that men should never have been at such a social and political advantage as to be able to literally give and take away rights from groups of people.

fuckin tell ‘em

"That’s why they call them rights."

Puppy growing up, no hesitation on the second jump. [video]

This man has amazing taste in puppies, horrible taste in footwear.

Or, how my eyes were scarred from socks with mandals in order to appreciate Frenchie puppy.



methlabrador:

what if one day for 24 hours everyone with a tumblr turned into whatever their url is 

This assumes we aren’t already our tumblr username.

straight people are terrifying they can go as far as to give the girl skeleton a pair of bone titties to indicate its a straight relationship

My frustration about breasts being the universal signifier for womanhood is completely, unfortunately affirmed.





"Here’s a general rule. When an insult is directed at a woman, consider how it would have sounded directed at a man. If the result is ridiculous, then it’s probably sexist."

came across this great comment on an article Ruby Tandoh (Great British Bake Off Runner Up) wrote for The Guardian (via aconits)










"When I was 12 boys slid their hand up my thigh and slapped my butt. I smiled and took it because I didn’t know it was okay to say stop. I didn’t know that I could say no. So, when the principal calls telling me my daughter is suspended for punching a boy who wouldn’t stop touching her, I will cook her favorite meals. When she tells me how she cursed at the boy who wouldn’t move his hands off her knee even though she asked him to, I will smile and pull out her favorite movie to watch together. I will celebrate the fact that she accepts her body as her own and knows she has the right to say no. I never want my daughter to think her body belongs to men, because it is her own and my god should she be proud. I will teach her it’s more than okay to say stop, something I wish I had known when I was that age."

I just died because it’s true

Reblog because I truly believe an American police force would release a picture containing an offensive appropriation of Native Americans in an attempt to assuage Black Americans.

Don’t let people EVER forget that the three biggest atrocities committed by the United States were the genocide of the Native Americans, the enslavement of Black Americans, and the internment of the Japanese.




"America was built on two monumental crimes: the genocide of the Native American and the enslavement of the African American. The tendency of official America is to memorialize other peoples’ crimes and to forget its own - to seek a high moral ground as a pretext to ignore real issues."

Mahmood Mamdani

I have never seen such perfect sentences.
