Basically, when I have nothing immediate to work on at my job, I just make infographics that are relevant to intimate partner violence. So here’s another one — this one an overview of teen dating violence.

But as I was making it, I was thinking, “OH FUCK. I REALLY SHOULD MAKE ONE THAT’S JUST ABOUT TECHNOLOGICAL ABUSE!” since that one is so confusing and so ~new~ and difficult to detect. So guess what I’m gonna do now…

And FYI. All of these stats and information came from Love Is Respect, which is such an amazing organization. If you or someone you know is experiencing teen dating violence, I highly, highly recommend them.

Teen dating violence is a very prevalent and serious problem. Do you know what the difference is between a healthy and unhealthy relationship?

Can’t stop, won’t stop: Protesters in Ferguson rally again, seeking justice for Mike Brown. More than a month and a half after his death, his killer, Darren Wilson, is still a free man. (Pt 2) 

Because it wouldn’t be a protest in Ferguson without fuckery from the police. A driver plowed his car through protesters, grazing several and running over a young boys foot. Beyond taking several hours to transport the boy to the hospital, they took even longer to arrest the motorist. Who did they not wait long to arrest? Two of the protesters who had been documenting the altercation for the world to see. If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention. #staywoke #farfromover #nojusticenopeace

I honestly can’t believe this right now. I was complaining to my bf about some Kotex tampons I had used, going on a bit of a rant about how bad they were, and on a whim I decided to go to the website and leave a review so other people who might get them would know better.
I’ve never written a tampon review in my life (it’s not something I ever anticipated doing) so I had a little fun getting very passionate about my thoughts, and then went to submit…. Only to receive the words: ‘Your review text contains inappropriate language.’ I was confused at first, I mean I was pretty emphatic, but I didn’t cuss at all… and then I realized: I had typed the word ‘vagina.’ 

You can’t type the word ‘vagina’ on a TAMPON review because it’s considered inappropriate.

KOTEX, a company that makes OVER A BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR primarily selling products to people with vaginas, thinks that someone typing the word “VAGINA” in a review of a product that goes IN THEIR VAGINA is being inappropriate and needs to be censored.

I retyped “v*gina” with an asterisk like it was a swear word, submitted and it went to preview mode with no problem. But I’m still kind of in shock… Honestly, what is wrong with Kotex that they think they need to protect tampon users from the word ‘vagina’?

If you didn’t think our society’s fear of the vagina was absurd, here you go. It’s cartoonish.

Daily killjoy reminder that Monica Lewinski was a twenty-three-year-old intern seduced by the most powerful man in the world and as a result had her life destroyed to the point where she was essentially forced out of the country and now, twenty years later, she is still just a punch line rather than a human being with a master’s degree

"I decided that I was a feminist. This seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Women are choosing not to identify as feminists. Apparently, [women’s expression is] seen as too strong, too aggressive, anti-men, unattractive."
