Dress I made a while ago (no pattern, just practice for draping), and hand dyed. It’s still wet so the colors won’t be quite as dark but I was too excited to wait.
Cathy Brennan, radical “feminist” terrorist, has set her sights on a young black activist in Baltimore County, MD. Phylicia Sampson is being taken to court by Brennan, a notorious harasser of trans women and their supporters. Sampson is a recent college grad with few resources, no car and no way to fight back without your help.
As a community, we’ve suffered Brennan’s assaults for a long time—her blog is the best known for outing trans women’s personal information. She believes trans women are men who are infiltrating the feminist community and expends her resources fighting them. The idea that she is now taking her harassment to a legal venue is horrifying. That she has selected a young black woman with few resources to fight back is repugnant.
We can’t let Cathy Brennan get away with this! Share Phylicia’s campaign on Facebook, twitter, tumblr and instagram. Here are some things you can do TODAY to help:
- Tell your friends why it is important that they donate to this campaign.
- Donate what you can.
- Write to your favorite feminist blog and ask them to cover this campaign

Hi guys I’m obsessed with this shit lately because I don’t want anyone to have unhappy, unsupported boobs like I did. Even if you think your boobs and bras are fine, try it. It will make a big difference in comfort, support, and shape, even if you have small boobs or big boobs. A proper fitting…
Jesus. Fucking. Christ.
I’m going to need an actual CLOTH measuring tape to do this, but I couldn’t resist trying with string and a ruler JUST TO SEE if my size would be wildly different than what I think it is/what I’m wearing.
Uh. I’ve been under the assumption that I’m a 32B. For a while I’ve thought my bra sat funny/that the silhouette didn’t look right/that something just wasn’t right with my bras.
According to the numbers, I should ACTUALLY be either a 30C, 28DD or a 30D (like I said, I seriously need to get a cloth measuring tape up in here because I’ve gotten varied numbers - but suffice to say, something ain’t right with my current bra size).
Ladies you know how sometimes there’s chub over the band or chub around your armpit area? THAT’S ACTUALLY MISPLACED BREAST TISSUE AND MEANS YOU’RE WEARING THE WRONG SIZE.
WHAT?! All this time I just thought that meant my sides/arm-chest connecting areas were just fat!!!
My mind is blown and I’m actually pretty pissed that so much misinformation is readily passed out to young girls and grown women alike about bras, how they SHOULD fit, indicators that they don’t fit, and most importantly - how to ACCURATELY find your size. Like, I’m actually ANGRY that I’m JUST NOW learning this at age 25.
So yeah, all of you, if you have boobs - DO THIS IMMEDIATELY.
This is also a really great resource (heads up, though, the writer does not use gender inclusive language). Getting a bra that actually fits is so crucial and I just feel so much more comfortable all the time. I’m actually two cup sizes bigger than I thought I was and I finally got some that fit perfectly and I never have to adjust them through out the day, and the straps dont fall down nearly as much, and you don’t realize just how uncomfortable those things can be until you finally find one that fits.

Pre-Teen Musicians On The Receiving End Of Bullying
Malcolm Brickhouse and Jared Dawkins aren’t your average Flatbush, Brooklyn pre-teens. The music…
Checked the kids out, they’re dope. I love how they are just totally dismissive of the bs!
Why did I RT this?
Well because Visibility… You know the rest.
God we fuck up teenagers’ heads. We tell them that biological conditions are moral punishments and then we get all shocked when they don’t practice rational risk management of biological conditions. We teach them “sex is super desirable and all the cool kids do it, and it’s hideously shameful and will destroy your life” and we wonder why they act an eensy bit neurotic about it. If you tried to design a system for making sexually active kids confused and unsafe, you couldn’t do much better than the American media and school system.
And for once, the answer is relatively simple. Just talk about sex like it’s a part of life. Some people have sex and some people don’t, because people are different. STIs aren’t bad because they’re Dirty Crotch Rot; they’re bad because they’re contagious illnesses like strep throat or whooping cough, and you can ask a doctor to check for and treat them just like you would with strep throat. Unwanted pregnancy isn’t a scarlet A; it’s a mostly-preventable accident that sometimes occurs when people are going about their normal business of having sex. You can ask the school counselor about a variety of topics, including career planning, problems at home, questions about sex, or conflicts with teachers.
If we could just get the goddamn stick out of our collective ass and accept that sex is a human activity and teenagers are humans, maybe there wouldn’t be quite so many plaintive “I don’t understand my body and I’m confused and scared and I don’t know anyone I can ask in person” messages flying out into the world.
I want all the hugs, but I also don’t want anyone to touch me do you see my dilemma?
