In his article “The 10 Things Women Need to Realize in 2013,” Elite Daily author Eddie Cuffin not only proves that misogyny is alive and well, he illustrates the horribly misguided view of gender equality held by many men and women across the country. His opener alone is enough to discredit the entire article, as Cuffin tells women if we “Want to be treated as equals? Start acting like it.”
My own reaction to Cuffin’s article would probably never be taken seriously, however, as Cuffin writes:
At the end of the day, your opinion is important; however, you must understand when to stop. We understand you like to push your limits and you want to get as much as you can out of every situation, but there comes a point where you must realize that it’s getting a bit excessive. You need to know when to let things go.
But don’t let Cuffin’s article hinder you from getting down with members of the opposite sex, as exploring your sexuality with one of the “plenty men … who can give you the satisfaction you deserve” is “the only way you’re going to grow fully.”
So thank you, Mr Cuffin, for your instruction on how to be taken seriously in 2013. Please forgive me if I ignore your opinions completely.
the actual fuck is this horseshit.
I’M STUCK ON THE FACT THAT THE NUMBER ONE THING TO LEARN IS LEGITIMATE BUT “oh theres plenty of me—” STOP RIGHT THERE jfc I THOUGHT THE ADVICE WOULD BE TO MASTURBATE????
“Too often we see women succumb to the pressure of people’s opinions when they should just be out there living for themselves.”

So why is one considered ‘inappropriate’ and the other accepted? Stop sexualising my body.
I wonder this too. Why is it a man’s breast and nipple are okay to show but a woman’s breast and nipple isn’t.
best thing to reblog yet
if you ever feel bad about yourself remember that george bush was once informed that 4 brazilian people were killed in iraq and he responded ‘how many is a brazilian’
This was one of my all time favorite pictures I have taken in my few years of doing photography.
The point of this picture and the people with bags over their heads is to represent what society does to genders. First off, people assume gender by body type but in this picture you could have two transgenders, one, both male, both female, or any other combination and we would still be the same… Human.
Now, women are victimized by wearing revealing clothing or not being afraid to show their bodies with pride as well as being comfortable with their sexuality, while a nearly nude male doing the exact same thing won’t be put down for showing off the body they have.
Regaurdless of what you take this message as, I just want everyone to realize that we are all the same kind and we are all unique. People have no right to judge another person by what they wear, or who they choose to be.
(For safety purposes on this picture I had taken a picture of this from my wall)

I am actually like crying at the amount of notes on this in a 10 hour period. This is by far my best picture I have taken in a really long time.
Thank you guys so much
Psst thank you Kam, I like you and I like that you do the thing
(The only time I guess I really take note of your #nsfw tag anymore are if the post is really nsfw, or if it has something to do with #gore or #cory =P)
Nobody cares Cory
(Possible #transgender fetishizing as well as #cissexism, discussions of #sexism and #body politics in general; I’m not saying anything about what degree of clothing people I think should and shouldn’t wear in public, just that American society did that a long time ago)
Honestly I am fascinated by the point in transition for trans* people of all gender and, sexes, at which going shirtless in public becomes an issue (as Kain put it, “problematic”). Acknowledging that I’m a cisboy and I have no place whatsoever in a dialogue on these issues, it still interests me that I hear this mentioned so infrequently.*
Even just like “#topless” would work I guess??? I mean, I know you don’t blog it often, but it always seems that as soon as someone’s in a public place, ALL the nude photos happen on the dash
Heh, I considered that, but I thought it might seem kind of passive-aggressive, and it definitely wouldn’t be filtered by as many people’s Tumblr Savior settings. I will consider future examples on a case-by-case basis, I suppose.
…And yes, I know the feeling. ALL the nude photos. I had just the teeniest bit of a nudity/tattoos/bodies reblog spam last winter, and wouldn’t you know, the one day Kam goes on my blog in computer class…
(I’ve also had one of my bosses look over my shoulder when there was Tony/Loki or Dean/Castiel makeout art on the screen, but that was on Kam’s blog, not anywhere Tumblr Savior would’ve worked. And it was also just heavy kissing, not anything terrible pornographic. =P)
