All the while double standards about sexual activity abound in this country. If women remain virgins, they are harassed. If they are sexually active, they are labelled "sluts," "easy," or "whores."

Women's emotions should not be delegated to caricatures of PMS, nor should women's emotions be considered a negative quality.

According to the last Wikimedia Foundation editors survey, only nine percent of Wikipedia editors are women, down from 13 percent in 2010. So the largest collection of human knowledge in history is controlled by men? Not surprised. Let's start editing, chicas.

Feminism is the basic desire for equality for all human beings, not extremism or man-hating. (Although feminists can be extreme and can dislike the specific men who underpay them, harass them, rape them, objectify them, shame them, and strip them of human rights -- with no resistance from others.) Feminism is inclusive. Feminism is both loving father and respectful husband. Feminism is both homemaker and CEO. Feminism is both prostitute and church-goer. Feminism is homosexual, heterosexual, asexual, bisexual, and transexual. Feminism is secretary and engineer. Feminism is both solely mother and all the mothers who maintain a thousand other positions. Feminism is both virgin and healthy, sexually active female human. Feminism is both pro-life and pro-choice. Feminism is both unshaved legs and plastic surgery. Feminism should include men, women, and trans*. Feminism is a healthier half of the population that can reach its full potential. My feminism is the desire for government to accurately represent the population, and require half of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches to be women. Feminism is the freedom to choose.

How can you change minds steeped in a collective, sanctioned, reinforced muck? Shout louder and together.

why does the global society seem to consider breasts, nipples, and nursing mothers obscene? The refrain always goes, "Oh no, let's not corrupt the children" -- when the children were just nursing on the breasts mere months ago! How about let's stop implicitly teaching children that breasts are purely sexual organs, something that only females have to cover up for fear of males losing all control, that whole farce. Fun fact, in Central Park, its legal for women to go topless. O.o whoa, *sarcasm* scandalous, something that males do regularly -- Here's an interesting article about a woman who tried, and was told by the police that she was "doing it for attention" and that "children were around."

So hairy stockings were invented to combat sexual assaulters. So what message is that sending about hairy legs? That they're not feminine? Wow. Women should not be looked down upon if they choose not to shave.

Tsk tsk. A TSA officer tells a 15 year old girl to "cover up." Why are women judged for showing off their bodies? It is within their full rights as human beings as long as they're not naked.

Photos by the SCAR project were banned by Facebook because apparently mastectomies are obscene. This project intends to raise awareness, funds, and honesty.

The SCAR Project intends to raise public consciousness of early-onset breast cancer, raise funds for breast cancer research/outreach programs and help young survivors see their scars, faces, figures and experiences through a new, honest and ultimately empowering lens. Photos by this project were banned by Facebook because apparently breasts are obscene. Incredulous. The true side of breast cancer needs to be exposed. Its not all pink ribbons and races, although those are honorable.
