"If you think women are crazy you’ve never had a dude go from hitting on you to literally threatening to kill you in the time it takes you to say ‘no thanks.’"

"In the United States, access to tampons and pads for low-income women is a real problem, too: food stamps don’t cover feminine hygiene products, so some women resort to selling their food stamps in order to pay for “luxuries” like tampons. Women in prison often don’t have access to sanitary products at all, and the high cost of a product that half the population needs multiple times a day, every month for approximately 30 years, is simply, well, bullshit."

- The case for free tampons (via stuffmomnevertoldyou)

You know, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anybody suggest that toilet paper or paper towels in public bathrooms shouldn’t be free.  We’d consider it outrageous if that very basic necessity were to be missing, or provided only for purchase.

And yet.

This is a reason why I stayed on hbc that was provided to me for free from Planned Parenthood in order to skip my periods for so long. For a long time, I couldn’t afford tampons and pads. They are really expensive. I am forever grateful to PP and will continue to donate to them. I will also continue to donate hygiene products to the local women’s shelters. These items are frequently needed. If you can, please consider donating. We might be a long way away from free hygiene supplies for everyone, but I think that if we come together, we can help those in need.

I never knew this was a thing. But, OF COURSE every woman should have access to free tampons or pads. It’s ridiculous that this isn’t a thing provided everywhere.

Never forget that the phrase “Skinny Bitch” was popularized by a 2005 diet book, published by Rory Freedman (a former modelling agent) and Kim Barnouin (a former model).

Skinny Bitch was created by skinny bitches who referred to themselves as skinny bitches and wanted to encourage other…

Eat a taco. Drink a beer. Donate money to an abortion fund.

Here’s a challenge I can get behind! Taco, beer, and Planned Parenthood, baby.

This is not even close to the focus of this Tumblr, but what’s happening in Ferguson is so unacceptable. The military police, the persecution (the murder!) of innocents, the portrayal of the citizens of this town in the media…it’s WRONG. It’s fucking racist and unacceptable and horrible and WRONG. I just want to cry.

Most trainers or gurus online talk about us as if we HAVE to lose weight, or we HAVE to want to look better. 

What if we are just fine how we are? 

Yes, this. The way you look is not my concern as a trainer. My concern is that you improve your health, become stronger, achieve greater stamina, reduce your stress, sleep better, feel better about yourself, increase your energy levels, and reduce your risk for disease. If, and only if, a client tells me she wants to change her body (100% of my current clients are women—I’m not being sexist), then yes, I can help with that. But a dramatic body-change (especially for a heavier client) is largely dependent upon her choices outside of the gym. I don’t consider aesthetics super relevant to the population I’m training unless that is the specific and most important goal of the client.
