"Sexual assault isn’t a ‘sex allegation.’ It’s a rape allegation. No one cares if [Dominique Strauss-Kahn] is alleged to have had sex. Many, if not most, adult human beings have had sex. What we care about is whether he assaulted someone, sexually or otherwise. If someone is arrested for allegedly breaking into a jewelry store and stealing a Rolex, we don’t call it a ‘shopping allegation.’"


"It makes no sense to make this attack on women. If you don’t feel this is an attack, you need to go home and talk to your wife and your daughters."

So I woke up this morning in a pool of my own blood.



Wait, let me back up.

Hi, my name is Cara and I’m a 21 year old woman. Every 28 days, give or take, I have a period. And it fucking sucks. Today, was one of those where I take from the 28 day cycle. I wasn’t due for another period for at least a week, but considering that…

This is pretty awesome.

House Oversight Committee Chairman’s decision to exclude women from testifying at a hearing on contraception coverage


This is unconscionably awful.

Watch the video to see some politicians standing up for women.

This is so mindblowingly stupid. Women tend to be authorities on WOMEN’S HEALTH

"Really, conservatives just hate women. They resent the fact that we work, go to school, vote, everything. Their entire stance on birth control, abortions and social programs is a thinly veiled attempt to take us back to a time when we had less rights. Take away our birth control and we get pregnant. Take away our abortions and we have to keep the baby (in their minds, anyway). Take away certain social programs to help support ourselves (mainly food stamps, WIC and housing assistance) and they think that will force us to get married to a man who can support us. Take away other social programs like daycare subsidies and then we have no choice but to stay at home and take care of the kids because the cost of daycare eats into any additional income. Men who have always relied on their male privilege to get them through life cannot handle seeing a women succeed, or even exist, without them. They figure if you keep kicking them back down, they’ll eventually give up and settle for some loser who doesn’t deserve them but has been given all the opportunities in the world to succeed because he possesses a penis."
