It sounds about right then // funny pictures - funny photos - funny images - funny pics - funny quotes - #lol #humor #funnypictures-I am not Native American, but I love this because racism in all forms needs to STOP in this country!
This shows the racist notion that whites are viewed as the only type of American even though they claimed a land that didn't even belong to them in the first place. The colonization of America was fueled by many racist intentions that destroyed the native american culture by deeming it less valuable which is a type of discrimination that exists today.
It sounds about right then
It demeans men as well as women.

I love this. I wish I could do a better job of explaining that feminism isn't just about women, for women, and it certainly it's anti-male. We are fighting the patriarchy because it oppresses all of us, albeit in different ways. What's more, women participate in the patriarchy because we are given so few other things to believe in.
Truth! We shouldn't undermine a man's capabilities to make a woman's seem greater. Both sexes should be equally cherished!
Patriarchy reinforces gender stereotypes like; women are weak, men don't have emotions, women all want to be mothers, and men just want to be promiscuous. Feminism promotes the idea that all genders should be equal and able to live life in whatever way that they wish.

Sexism hurts everyone. <<<love things like this with pictures and such because it helps people understand how it looks behind the scenes ya know?
Normally I just pass over this kind of stuff but give this comic a try..
Sexism hurts everyone. Feminism is against the patriarchal oppression of men and boys as much as women, girls, and others.
True. So true. Equality for all.
This is feminism. We are not all 'man haters'. We are not all extremists. Feminism may start with 'Fem' but it's purpose is gender equality. Not only for one gender but for both of them, all of them. The sexism that hurts women, also hurts men. -ZSW

If I'd Learned One Thing In College, I Wish It Had Been This
It needs to stop. I was looking for weight loss motivation on Instagram and I typed in #weightloss and all of these results came up with girls who are so excited about losing weight by starving themselves and from there, I found a lot of them are cutting themselves and stuff. What kind of world do we live in where we think that's okay?
The lessons we teach
Girls, Inspiration, Teaching, Quotes, Sadness, Body Image, Beautiful, Truths, So True
so true, so sad. 50 years ago, would there have been so many girls (and boys!) with eating disorders, body image issues, dieting obsessions and/or the desire to change what they look like by going under the knife?? No!! Because people weren't being fed these false images of what we are supposed to think is normal. I will add normal is everyone's own version there is no one cohesive normal. You choose how you want to live in distress and prisoner of your mind and others narrow opinions of beauty
This is so true. So many people out there that call girls ugly or fat it's because others have shown them this is how it has to be. I will teach my girls body image is not what makes them beautiful, no matter what people who say they love them say about them.
curvy girl quotes
Teach your girls they are beautiful, inspire them, be an example. You are their guide to grow.
TRUTH! Its so sad that young girls feel that their bodies are horrible because of what society feels is acceptable. Teaching young people to hate thierselves and have bad eating habits IS NOT acceptable.
If you're on "Plan W", I'd say it's time to start worrying.

The real message
Disney Movies, Terrifying Disney, Favorite Disney, Disney Princesses, Beautiful, Well Said, Disney Villains, Favorite Movie, The Beast
Gaston really is the most terrifying Disney villain… (and this is why Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorite movies)
Beauty and the beast, a tale of two ostracized souls finding acceptance. Love this! Belle is my favorite Disney princess!
As I grew up, Beauty and the Beast became one of my favorite Disney movies and Gaston became one of the most terrifying Disney villains for me. Because Gaston is so TERRIFYINGLY real, and because the entire village loves him and supports him. For some reason it never occurred to me, as well, how profound Disney's portrayal of the Beast was. I've read both of Robin McKinley's adaptation of the fairy tale, and it always bothered me - the Beast was too peaceful, too noble, too ancient, too wise.
Gaston is really the most terrifying Disney villain... This was well said!
What "Freedom of Speech" *doesn't* mean.
Freespeech, Politics, 1St Amendment, Cite Free, Quotes, Free Speech, Xkcd, Freedom Of Speech, Freedomofspeech
Free Speech - Supporting your position by citing the 1st amendment is the ultimate concession: you're saying that the most compelling argument in defense of your position is that it is not illegal to express it.
#FreeSpeech Source : http://xkcd.com/1357/
Free Speech- Yes, this... because it kills me when people claim that boycotting a business due to religious or political differences is somehow infringing on their first amendment rights. No. I have every right to spend my money where I like for any reason whatsoever.
ha sooo true! #freedomofspeech #freedomtoread #freedomofeducation
I’m sure a lot of you already read XKCD but this is very very important. "Defending a position by citing free speech is kind of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express."

Wealth Inequality In The United States Of America The Top 20% Own 93% of the wealth. http://www.upworthy.com/a-fugly-truth-made-pretty-a-cartoonists-depiction-of-wealth-inequality-ma3-5f?c=upw1 This graphic is based on research by The Levy Institute, which uses data from the Federal Reserve Board's Survey of Consumer Finances. The illustration contains a small mistake: That gigantisized money stack on the far left is actually five bundles shorter than it should be.
Many people think that the huge gap in wealth distribution inhibits people from achieving the American dream. I disagree and think that this shows why people pursue the dream to reach that upper tier. I think that this gap is the result of a capitalist country. In a perfect world, however the top 5% would help with people in the lower income category.

Not a dirty word
Thoughts, Equality Right, Little Girls, Comics Book, Judges, Feminism, Feminist, People, Little Boys
I think feminism is often taken way too far by people and this is a perfect example of how feminists can sometimes be so confusing and contradictory.
I usually don't pin stuff like this, and I don't consider myself a feminist, but I'm so done with all the double standards and judging that is dolled out on women that men don't have to deal with half as much. (This comment shows that feminism is still a dirty word)
I think a lot of women don't really realize they're feminist because of the bad reputation it gets from an outspoken few. Many will say "I don't really consider myself a feminist but…" Even I myself thought that. But once you ask yourself the question "should men and women have equal rights?" hopefully the answer is clear.
What message are we sending to our children? We need to feed both our little girls and our little boys positive self image, no mater who or what they are!
