So I was waiting to pick up a prescription for my mom and, next to where I was sitting, there was a display of therapeutic support socks.
The thing that caught my eye about them is that the women’s version is described as “stylish”, whereas the men’s version is described as “comfortable” …
It’s just strange to think that even something as innocuous as therapeutic socks has gendered marketing.
a comprehensive list of things that actually need to be gendered:
I recognize that since these are sparkly journals they’re probably all “for girls” but look at the difference between the words on the feminine and masculine colors

The lights just went out, but like hell I’m getting up. If I’m in a horror movie, I’ll die blogging.
Wow.. I didn’t know that

Reblog the hell out of this everyone.
This has been debunked, repeatedly.
Liberty Enlightening the World was always meant to be Libertas, the Roman goddess of freedom (who was particularly venerated by freed Roman slaves), and her face was probably modelled on the designer’s mum. The freedom expressed is for white colonials, not slaves.
The image to the left depicts another, more recent Lady Liberty, which stands in Saint Martin. By lying about this you’re discrediting Theodor/e Bonev, the original sculptor — and an actual (biracial, I think) black Caribbean artist who actually cares about representing the beauty of blackness — as well as misrepresenting an artwork made to commemorate emancipation from slavery in Saint Martin (which, incidentally, occurred almost twenty years before the Emancipation Proclamation).
I’m turning 22 and I can’t function properly without parents for more than a week.
Biologically, I’d be one of those baby turtles that dies because it can’t cross a beach without getting eaten.
I am at baby turtle-level failure.

"I love women," is not a get out of jail free card. Thicke pulled the same bullshit when he was accused of degrading women in "Blurred Lines": "When we made the song, we had nothing but the most respect for women," he said. How nice of you to say so, Mr. Thicke. Alas, your work shows the opposite to be true. I am fairly certain many of the men who buy sex and consume porn also think they do it because they really, really, love women. NOPE. You love women like I love wine — as something I consume selfishly for my personal benefit and as a product.
I just watched the newest Adventure Time and man Betty is DOPE AS FUCK they keep adding awesome female characters ahhhh I need to make more fanart!!
