Check out the contrast between these search results. Not a single “loser”, “easy”, “desperate”, “stupid”, “scum” or similar insult in the search results for fathers.

Why, society, are single fathers so often seen with sympathy and admiration, yet single mothers are painted as a washed-up, disgusting strain on the system?

This is fucked.

I know this is rhetorical, but we know the reason.
Motherhood is not valued in this country, it’s demanded. We have people fighting tooth and nail against abortion, birth control, and then any social program that helps poor mothers. If the world sees you as a woman, you are expected to desire, birth, and raise children, and if you don’t do that, or you do it while poor, or single, or not white, you’re not only failing as a woman but as a mother.
But men, they don’t get defined by their reproductive abilities! They get to be multi-dimensional! And if they spare an occasional thought for the children they brought into the world, it’s a cherry on top of their identity as a person.
Women don’t get the luxury of existing as people outside of parenting, even in 2013. And until we do, this is the shit we’ll be dealing with.

"Motherhood is not valued in this country, it’s demanded."

Just a fraction of the cool stuff I learned when researching women’s history.

I also recently discovered that the first woman getting a university degree was italian, her name was Elena Lucrezia Cornaro Piscopia. She wanted to get a theology degree but the University of Padova refused it. After a long fight she obtained what she wanted, but only in philosophy, not in theology.
It was the year 1710, and she was the first woman getting a Laurea.

I don’t understand why we have such a stigma with nudity

we all have the same parts its just skin like why is there such a taboo

i honestly don’t understand the sexualisation of our bodies

why does naked have to equal sex

flesh is flesh and its still flesh when covered with cotton or leather or just fucking bare

chill out with your disgust at something so exquisitely beautiful.
