fuck-yeah-feminist:

Ladies:

If you feel the need to qualify why you are a feminist with things like,

"…but I love men!"
"…but I love dresses!"
"…but I shave!"
"…but I ____________"

STOP. Don’t justify your belief in gender equality. By saying these things, you’re claiming that women who don’t do them are lesser. That’s pretty damn counterproductive.

Yes!!!

12 Elaine Stritch quotes to live by


Elaine Stritch, female comedy icon and salty Broadway grand dame, died Thursday at the grand age of 89. Outspoken, lauded and often considered difficult by her co-workers, Stritch never stopped working even in her 80s, only moving out of New York in the last year or so of her life. She was a proud supporter of the city all through her life, though. “I think it’s the wrong way around to say when you get older move to the country,” she once said. “I think when you get older you move to New York. If you’re a nice broad they’ll look after you.”

Women’s Health Care

The results of this last weeks SCOTUS rulings surrounding women’s health is appalling to me.  I am actually having a hard time wrapping my head around it at times.

I have learned a few things while being around for the last 26 years - 

  • How to tie my shoes
  • That you need to look both ways before crossing the street
  • Everyone has the right to their own opinion & that is OKAY
  • Religion is something that if up to each person individually
  • America is a country that values the idea of separation of church and state

And over the last few months I have learned that 

  • Even though it is 2014, the outlook towards women’s health care and everything surrounding it is being treated like it is 1957.

I feel like Don Draper is sitting in his office working on a campaign concept for the next GE Deluxe Stove that us ladies “cant get through cooking for our families without.

  • The idea of there being a separation of church and state is one of the biggest lies our country has ever spread. What rights does an employer have to impose their religious beliefs on their employees? 

Recent rulings from SCOTUS just proves that there is still an insane separation of women’s health rights and health rights across the board for our nation, and that there is no separation of church and state. It is so unbelievably frustrating to think that we still have to have this fight, these conversations, and these losses. 

There is an upside to this though. We are still fighting and making our voices heard. I am confident that we will continue to pull together and ensure that this will no longer be a women’s health care issue, but a health care issue!

 

Last weekend I was walking around SoHo and stumbled upon this new billboard series from Aerie.
Typically, I am more than annoyed by the over Photoshopped and over sexed up ads for teens, especially young girls. These caught my eye though. It was really refreshing to see that for once you see a teen brand, female focused, that was announcing that everyone is sexy (wish they used different terms here), just the way they are.Yes, I see that they still pushing the over sexed-up end of the spectrum still, but this seems to be a start.
It was also nice to see that when they say the girls were not Photoshopped, they weren’t. My husband works in the industry (packaged goods, not fashion or people) and he looked closely at them and agreed they weren’t.
Overall, I really just like that there is a social campaign for young girls to be the Real Them. They are consistently being bombarded by over Photoshopped, oversexed ads with models while being told they should strive for someone else vision of beauty.
So thanks Aerie, for taking a step forward in young girls self esteem. It is not going unnoticed and it is greatly appreciated. But it is a start.
