I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again - 

Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone. 

Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.

If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time. 

And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office. 

Reblogging hard for that last comment.

I WANTED TO SAY THIS BUT THEN SOMEONE ELSE DID and I’m damn proud.

THANK YOU <3
And it’s so stupid how people say shit like “Hillary will be a great president 3/4 weeks of the month!” like that comment is so stupid and so incorrect for so many reasons, she’s fucking 50 something

Anonymous said: What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?

dysonrules:

aconissa:

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.

REBLOG FOREVER.

rejennerate:

People are not the only organisms marketed to be perfect. ‘Imperfect’ looking vegetables with irregular shapes are often thrown away or sold to feed livestock which will later be slaughtered, leaving only the average-looking plants to be sold in supermarkets.

In a fight against food waste, Intermarché, a French supermarket, launched Inglorious Fruits and Vegetables, a marketing campaign - and entire store aisle - devoted to selling the unusual looking plants, providing an alternative to both wasting food and supporting inhumane corporations of systematic slaughter.

It’s not just a marketing campaign, though; it’s an entire aisle in their store which capitalizes on not only the novelty of unusual-looking food, but also products like soups and juices made from the irregular fruits and vegetables.

But this isn’t a post about fruit body image. I haven’t mentioned the kicker: all of these items cost 30% less than their ordinary-looking counterparts. So, if you’re having trouble affording the produce necessary to fuel yourself in a healthy way, this alternative cuts your cost by a third.

ALL supermarkets should do this and I hope this is the beginning of a trend rather than an anomaly.
