Wish I would’ve gotten to this sooner since it’s late to be posting, but I really love this particular message and the discussion around “being a man” and how it relates to the treatment of women as well as gay men (or anyone else perceived as “less” / equivocated with being undesirably weak)

Imran Siddiquee found a fractal. A fractal in human behaviour.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

Remember, as the year draws to a close, that “About 40,000 women in the U.S. were expected to die in 2014 from breast cancer” this year. If you have trouble imagining the scope of numbers, here’s a list of cities in the world that would become wiped-out by a statistic like 40,000 people: (x). Ghost towns.
It’s an indictment of modern culture that we have to use sex appeal (boobies and tatas), divorced from the women inside of them,rather than the appeal of saving an actual living being, in order to get money for a cure. It’s sad.

"If more girls wanted to be scientists, there would be more female scientists"

*takes a deep breath* WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY THAT ACTIVELY DISCOURAGES FEMALE INTELLIGENCE BY PAINTING IT AS A NON FEMININE TRAIT AND SETS UP MALES TO BE IN POSITIONS OF ACADEMIC SUPERIORITY DESPITE THERE BEING NO CORRELATION BETWEEN GENDER AND ACADEMIC ABILITY thank you for your time

In my Uni, in the Engineering building, the graffiti on the desks was stridently anti-woman. The conversation often naturally excluded women as serious participants, if not actively, then consistently — even in my work-life, btw, the assumption is ‘he’, ‘him’ for everything. It’s as though we don’t exist. It’s as if it’s inconceivable that women could be, say, even as much as a customer. An unconsciously wholly male system women weren’t allowed to challenge. Standard. Given the 51% skew in the world population. also very odd.

In Uni, in the Sciences building, I passed bulletins on the way to labs where fully nude pin-ups were tucked in among the latest reports. This deep-set brand of closet-hostility against equality and women’s ideas was pretty normal. There was widely held skepticism re. young women’s authority. In may places acceptance for women who weren’t outright exceptional was low. Making the grade is not enough if you are a woman.

The inability to win at this game, to be measured without bias and get ahead, to be recognized as an equal contributor, to matter, is part of why women leave the maths and sciences.

How about people stop blaming the exhausted girls and people of colour who have to fight their way through this kind of inequity, and start fixing the problem.
