My name is Sam. I'm 21 years old and the most important thing to note here is that I have the most beautiful hedgehog in the world. Her name is Delia...she's much cuter than me. I also have the best ferrets ever (I'm totally not one bit biased) named Meeka and Benny, who are also much cuter than me.
Featuring: lots of reblogs, and my beautiful pets. Also opinions.
when you do something for someone and they’re not grateful
when you get up to pray in the early hours of the morning while the rest of the world is asleep
when you hold your tongue instead of being rude or disrespectful
when you don’t argue with your parents even though you know you’re right
when you do the right thing when no-ones watching
when you make duaa for your enemies instead of hurting them with bad words
when you do the smallest of smallest of good deeds, so small even you’ve forgotten about it.. Allah knows.
And whoever does an atom’s weight of good will see it
The more we depend on women to prevent rape, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Here’s a look at the well-documented ways we can actually stop rape. Maybe it’s time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing them before we send gallons of nail polish to colleges across the country.
Fox spent much of its VMA coverage questioning Beyonce’s ability to promote feminism while being "extremely sexual."
Megyn Kelly labeled Beyonce’s message and lyrics as “skanky,” while a FoxNews.com article claimed the singer “seemed to ensure her behind was the focus on each song, all the while educating young viewers about feminism.”
On The Five, Fox hosts suggested “she’s auditioning for a future husband,” and Greg Gutfeld announced that ”the greatest thing about pop culture is convincing women that acting like strippers is empowering.”
What Fox failed to recognize is that expressing sexuality does not automatically remove a woman’s right to discuss equality. Instead, the network righteously slut-shamed Beyonce and used her performance as basis to attack feminism as a whole. In reality, such policing of women’s sexuality has harmed progress toward equality. The very same mindset has been used to dismiss women’s need to access contraception, and blame rape survivors for their own assaults.
If anyone is going to be shamed, it should be Fox and its irresponsible coverage of women’s issues.
