thought this was a useful infographic

This is super helpful.

ALSO if they feel gender is an influence of attraction, a person might identify as bi rather than pan

If I might make an addition:Don’t ever criticize someone for identifying as one or the other even if it doesn’t match your personal definition. These are tough concepts to nail down. Just let us do our thing.

O Spot, the complex levels of behavior you display
Connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array.
And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,
I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.

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

I’M VOMITING

For those of you who don’t know, these white people have appropriated Maori culture with the fake Ta Moko on their faces. These tattoos are incredibly important in Maori culture but Maori are persecuted constantly by white people in New Zealand if they choose to wear them. When Maori do it, they’re criminals, when white people do it, they’re cool and quirky.

Just another example of injustices against indigenous people.

When a financial institution asks me my “mother’s maiden name” as a security question. Because it’s assumed that I have at least one and no more than one mother in my life AND that she married AND that she gave up her own name AND that that part of her identity was erased enough from my public history so as to be a password to access my private information.

Holy crap, I never realized.

well dollskill was just taken off my list of all time favorite stores….

Unreal.

that email is almost worse than the headdress 

um i’m native American

I find that offensive. I don’t normally get too uptight but

the point of a war bonnet/headdress is not to “get all the boys looking your way” or whatever, but it’s a sign of honor; every single feather, it’s position, it’s dye job, it’s notches; they each represent a deed done by the warrior.

My great great great great great great GREAT grandfather had a full, to-the-floor war bonnet, because he was a greatly respected chief and warrior and negotiator. he was straight up badass. and that’s THE POINT OF THE HEADDRESS OKAY

not only is this completely unrealistically designed and completely inaccurate but it spits in the face of the purpose of the war bonnet and it’s position of high rank and honor.

And the email is ridiculous beyond even the site’s description of the item.

Fuck you, DollsKill.

Yes i’m native American, and that’s badass, but this is not ”to honor mhy background” or to “give me representation”. 

calling you racist is NOT RIDICULOUS because you ARE.

A Violent Past, An Empowering Now: Urban Bush Babe’s Cipriana Quann (via StyleLikeU)

We asked Urban Bush Babes founder, Cipriana Quann, to be a part of the What’s Underneath Project because her courage is as audacious as her beautiful crown of hair, which we have been coveting since we first met her a couple of years ago. “For me, suffering means strength,” she said, and, for today’s episode in partnership with Chantelle Lingerie, she bravely reveals for the first time her struggles about how she and her sister grew up with a mentally ill, physically abusive father who stayed at home while their mother worked. Cipriana has used the 14 years of her dad’s violence and manipulation as fuel for self-empowerment and self-acceptance. She dropped out of the conventional modeling world that told her that she had to change her hair to get work and launched her very successful blog that has disrupted the status quo. “I decided a long time ago that I wasn’t going to let my past decide who I was,” Cipriana declares. “I don’t want to carry anger. After years, I feel peaceful, I feel at home, and I feel like me.”
