    I cannot believe Curvy Kate’s audacity to outright steal the work of a high school student for some insipid marketing message.

    Shame on you, Curvy Kate. Shame on you.

    Not only steal the artwork, but steal it for the purpose of denigrating its message.

  2. 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.

    and you grow up to be like ‘ahahaha women r stupid and weak’

    Many menstruation ads today are considered, by some, an *empowering approach* to periods.  And on the surface, maybe that’s what it looks like.  We see smiling women who aren’t held up by menstruation, who are athletic, and business savvy.  But when you take a closer look, these images hold the same negative attitudes about menstruation that we see throughout history.  These ads subtly, but effectively, communicate that menstruation is embarrassing, gross, and needs to be made “invisible”, that it is a defect you need to “smack down” or defeat, that periods are inconvenient and uncomfortable for men.

    Rarely are we provided with a positive view of menstruation.  Many of us don’t even know what it would look like to talk about menstruation without implying that it is a “female defect”, shameful, or disgusting.  This positive view might reflect that yes, your body actually releases red menstrual fluid, not some mysterious clear blue fluid.  That no, it does not make you “dirty” for a week and it’s actually OK to have contact with your menses.  That it is not like peeing or pooping because it is biologically connected to sexual reproduction and sexuality.  That being on your period doesn’t make you “crazy” or weak or incapable of making rational decisions.  That it’s okay to love your period, to hate your period, to be a “tough cookie” or to be upset about it - menstruation is different for everyone.  But half the world does it, and it’s not something we should be made to feel bad/embarrassed/gross/defective for.

    ashton kutcher cheated on his wife of seven years and continued to be the star of a sitcom and had virtually no repercussions towards his career whatsoever

    sean penn abused his wife and went on to win an academy award and a golden globe (he also said people who called hugo chávez a dictator should be arrested but idek what he was on when he said that so)

    charlie sheen hired numerous prostitutes, shot his fiancee, verbally threatened his second wife, and in the same year that his children were taken away from him announced that he was going on a nationwide tour which sold out within 18 minutes

    kristen stewart cheated on her boyfriend and was ridiculed for six straight months and labelled a slut/whore/bitch/home wrecker by the general public even after releasing a statement and apologizing for her actions and was forced to drop out of multiple projects
