"If a female student got drunk and had her car stolen the university would call the police. If she got drunk and had her computer stolen, they would call the police. If she got drunk and had her phone stolen, they would call the police. The fact that she was drunk would not even be factored in when assessing if a crime had been committed. But if she gets drunk and has her body invaded and her humanity stolen, school administrations are perplexed about what to do."

International Human Rights Activist Michael Simmons offered these words (via Facebook) in response to the May 3, 2014 New York Times’ “Fight Against Sex Assaults Holds Colleges to Account” article. (via kenyabenyagurl)

The violation of women is treated less seriously than the theft of her belongings. From this, we can gather that our physical and mental well-being is not considered to be as valuable as tangible property.

In other words, women are *less* important than objects.

"It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America."

This is one of my favorite quotes about sexualization/objectification vs autonomy of female bodies bc it’s so succinct

"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 ismisesarah)

"People who dismiss the unemployed and dependent as ‘parasites’ fail to understand economics and parasitism. A successful parasite is one that is not recognized by its host, one that can make its host work for it without appearing as a burden. Such is a ruling class in a capitalist society."

there are probably many things worse than that but it’s one of my pet hates, it’s like people winding you up and then pulling the whole ‘calm down!’ thing after

nothing worse than people making you out to be like irrational and emotional and stuff when really they’ve just personally wound you up and been obnoxious and you’re just reacting to that
