What they did not want you to ever find out is that your generation, the generation born between 1980-1995, actually outnumbers the Baby Boomers. They knew that if you ever turned your eye towards political reform, you could change the world. They tried to keep you sated on vapid television shows and vapid music. They cut off your education and fed you brain candy. They took away your music and gave you Top Ten pop stations. They cut off your art and replaced it with endless reality shows for you to plug into, hoping you would sit quietly by as they ran the world. We as a society are only as strong as our weakest link. Give ‘em hell, kids. 

GIVE. THEM. HELL.

I’ve seen this going around a lot. Here’s the thing: yes, our generation has incredible potential. But reblogging this picture is not enough. You need to take a stand and get involved. Find your cause. Write your rep. Tell your friends. Vote in every election.

We may seem politically apathetic, but as this picture shows, we aren’t. We Occupied, we Walked for Choice, and we sought justice for Trayvon. We created Change.org and Facebook and Twitter, which have changed the face of corporate responsibility and backlash. You have the power to do so much just from your computer. Don’t just reblog this image. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, KIDS.

Yours in revolution,

Jess

Stop degrading the act of sex by calling it ‘opening your legs.’

I’m so sick of women being degraded all the time. Because women just, you know, lay back and ‘spread their legs’ and let men do whatever they want. They don’t take any active role in the actual sex act or enjoy it. They are just objects that lay there with their legs open. Then they are stupid because through poor judgement or mishap, they became pregnant. The man is never blamed or shamed or degraded for having sex. There are no phrases used to degrade the act of a man participating in a sexual act, at least not a heterosexual one.

I swear if I could punch people in the face for saying ‘they shouldn’t have spread their legs’ I would. I don’t even care if they are someone in my family or my friends. That is how fucking pissed I get when people say hateful shit like that about women.

No issue is black and white. Women have abortions for many reasons. Shit happens. The fetus ends up being deformed and would not live; the woman just ended a previously stable relationship; the woman or couple has children already and cannot afford any more at the moment; The couple may have used birth control but it failed; the woman just found out she has a serious illness and will not be able to carry a pregnancy to term; the woman was raped, etc.

So fuck you and your hatred of women. Negativity about sex is disgusting and harmful.

She is certainly speaking for me.
