"Sexism is when people laugh at rape jokes and cringe at female anatomy."

Yesterday, a teacher at my daughter’s preschool told me that she saw two boys and a girl spinning the knobs of a play oven. Boy #1 says: “I’m a pilot! I’m flying a plane.’ Boy #2 says: “Me too!” The girl is quiet, so the teacher says to her: “What about you, are you a pilot?” The 3 year old girl replies: “I can’t be a pilot. I’m a pilot’s wife.”
So what do you think has happened in this little girl’s short life to make her believe it’s more likely that she would be a pilot’s wife than a pilot?"

PLEASE SPREAD THE INFORMATION THAT ALL ANTIBIOTICS COMPROMISE HORMONAL BIRTH CONTROL
IT DOESN’T MAKE IT COMPLETELY USELESS, BUT IT PROVIDES YOU WITH MORE OF A 40-50% CHANCE OF BECOMING PREGNANT INSTEAD OF THE NORMAL 1%
I AM VERY ANGRY THAT THIS IS NOT COMMON KNOWLEDGE
IF YOU ARE ON THE PILL AND USING ANTIBIOTICS TO TREAT A DISEASE, USE BACKUP BARRIER PROTECTION (which is never a bad idea anyway) LIKE A CONDOM, CERVICAL CAP, DIAPHRAGM, OR SPONGE
THANK YOU THAT IS ALL

"We teach girls shame. ‘Close your legs!’ ‘Cover yourself!’ We make them feel as though by being born female, they are already guilty of something. And so, girls grow up to be women who cannot say they have desire. They grow up to be women who silence themselves. They grow up to be women who cannot say what they truly think. And they grow up—and this is the worst thing we do to girls—they grow up to be women who have turned pretense into an art form."
