Q: Then you're fucked up. Most fic writers don't know what they're talking about. Please please try to learn more about it from a better source! It's important stuff!!
Dude I know. I am a science major. I’ve been force fed about using reputable sources. What I meant was, when you are a teenager in school you actually never learn anything. And to make matters worse they don’t even make sex Ed compulsory and your parents can keep you out of it if they wanted.
Ours was actually decent, and had both genders learning about the other as well. At 13 though, I sure wasn’t interested. Must admit that Highlander fanfic taught me more about the mechanics beyond the stick figure diagrams and cheesy educational videos :P

10 year old Yemeni girl smiling after she was granted a divorce from her husband- a 30 year old man
Here’s what I found after looking into it.
Nujood Ali was nine when her parents arranged a marriage to Faez Ali Thamer, a man in his thirties. Regularly beaten by her in-laws and raped by her husband, Ali escaped on April 2, 2008, two months after the wedding.
On the advice of her father’s second wife, she went directly to court to seek a divorce. After waiting for half a day, she was noticed by a judge, Mohammed al-għadha who gave her refuge. He had both her father and husband taken into custody.
Indeed, publicity surrounding Ali’s case is said to have inspired efforts to annul other child marriages, including that of an 8 year old Saudi girl who was allowed to divorce a middle-aged man in 2009.
But in 2013 Ali reported to the media that her father had forced her out of their home and is withholding her money granted by publishers. Her father has also arranged a marriage for her younger sister, Haifa.
Also this girl has her own book
I just want some feminists to focus more on this than on defending Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian.
Realistically, what can they do? Most of the feminists that you likely encounter are based in USA, Canada, maybe UK. What can they do to affect attitudes and policies in a place like Yemen?
They can raise awareness. Tumblr is a global site where you can donate to people in many countries to aid them.
A very good thing they can do, for one, is set up donations for this kid or other kids. They can put efforts to start up shelters for such incidents.
There’s a lot of things western feminists can do. This post only has almost 9k posts, whereas a post about male tears has 36K.
This hurt deep in my soul

the boys took the time to go to the edge of the stage during their panel to meet a girl who had a retinal handicap which causes her to only be able to see if someone or something is up close. She can only see the boys if the picture is right in front of her face and her sister asked if the boys would come closer so she could meet them. #nashcon

"I don’t have a problem with gay people I just don’t want them throwing it in my face"
Uh…… you mean like this?
wow. let it be known that tumblr legitimately changed my opinion on something today.
I’m sorry but is there an advert about toilet paper in there. They are legitimately trying to sex up toilet paper.

I find it interesting how society doesn’t care when the media sexualizes women, when men sexualizes women, when school and the government sexualizes women. But the second a woman is in control and sexualizes herself willingly it’s wrong and disgusting.

“When thinking of iconic romance, ask yourself if any imagery (paintings, photographs, film-stills) comes to mind that is not showing heterosexual couples? Probably not,” says photographer Braden Summers of his photo series of everyday gay and lesbian couples from around the globe.
