Grumpy Cat Adventures!
Did you know that birth control can manage a variety of health issues, from severe PMS to PCOS to levels of cancer risk? The five men that said Hobby Lobby can deny those benefits from its female employees clearly don't. Boycott the store, protest, and don't hesitate to speak out against the SCOTUS ruling. If there isn't sufficient uproar, more companies will cry religion to avoid providing coverage. The federal government has until October to appeal and they won't do it without public pressure.
Now this is a beautiful, romantic quote. If we could switch out all the "my husband's wife is freaking awesome!" quotes for this one, that would be great.
An end to basic weddings? You can now 3D print your own customized wedding accessories. Pretty bad ass for bridezillas who know AutoCAD.

Unimpressed owl: grumpy cat's spirit animal. It should be whoopty fuckin' hoo, but I won't nitpick.
Stop the Herakles Farms' project A US company is planning to tear down a chunk of rainforest the size of 100,000 soccer fields for a palm oil project. The area of forest is home to thousands of Cameroon people who rely on it for subsistence farming who stand to lose their land if the project goes ahead. Their peaceful attempts to stop the project have been met with threats, arrests, violence, and beatings. The forest is also home to African forest elephants.
You like elephants, yes? I assume you've seen Dumbo. I could also assume that we think we're doing good for them by not buying ivory. Here's the thing: elephants are more often killed to protect palm oil crops, and also die as a result of habitat destruction to plant said crops. Without our demand for palm oil products, the elephants could go on elephanting around undisturbed. We should all make sure our grocery products don't contain palm oil, and remember that connection the next time we shop.
Glad to see social justice issues on Pinterest. Unpaid internships or internships for credit are usually illegal at for-profit companies, and they're terrible for the economy. Never, ever, ever, ever do one: if they can't pay you minimum wage now, they don't have the money to hire you. If you're currently an unpaid intern, keep going - and then sue. No intern has ever lost a case suing for backpay in the United States or Canada.
If Disney Princesses Were Sloths...
This is not only a beautiful painting, but it perfectly captures how I feel when asked to do a long squat at the gym.
PSA to young pinners: even though you don't see a lot of it on Pinterest, science is pretty cool. Even cooler than chevron and mason jars.
I want women to be okay with wanting, and everybody else to be okay with them wanting. IMO, the word "slut" should basically be banished, because it just tells women to control perfectly natural desires and creates a nasty double standard.
A lesson for all women in the world…
Grandma Gatewood, first woman to hike the entire Appalachian trail. She did it in 1955 at the age of 67, wearing Keds sneakers and carrying an army blanket, a raincoat, and plastic shower curtain which she carried in a homemade bag she slung over her shoulder. This is quite a unique pin because it features a woman over 40, and it isn't tagged #antiaging. Rare find!
