I have been quite fond of you for some time; however I will say I've never known you as well as I would like. In my own opinion you have always been sweet & beauteous, humorous & witty, altruistic & benevolent & open minded. Telling you this anonymously isn't exactly mature, I admit. I could say all of this in person or even through Facebook, but this is what I'm most comfortable with doing. Perhaps it's because I fear you would say, "Not him…" or because I fear you might actually consider it.
I’m sorry I didn’t reply to this sooner… I just wasn’t sure how to I guess. This is one of the sweetest things I’ve ever read. I wish I could be all of those things, and I try to be, but it doesn’t always work out that way. But thank you so much for all of your compliments. I hope that you can find the courage to tell me who you are and we can be friends. -Alex
Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan
Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.
You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.
As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.
Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.
My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.
You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.
So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.
“oppression is not a competition”
thank you so much for this wording
*has a bag of sour gummy worms* hey you want one *you go to grab a blue-red one* *I immediately stop you* no not that one
I dearly wish that people would view their bodies as they view flowers…
Skin patches? Birthmarks?
Scars? Stretch marks?
Freckles? Moles? Acne scars?
Missing a few pieces?

Feel like you just look weird?
