It’s On Us: 
To RECOGNIZE that non-consensual sex is sexual assault.
To IDENTIFY situations in which sexual assault may occur.
To INTERVENE in situations where consent has not or cannot be given.
To CREATE an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.
It’s On Us
Not Alone

hold up
a celebrity filled, gender-neutral, anti-sexual assault PSA?
and this isn’t a BuzzFeed parody?

ShowOUT to Vote: Why I’m Helping My Fellow Classmates Register to Vote - Planned Parenthood Action Center

REMINDER: if you have a vagina and want to use Plan B as an emergency contraceptive, it loses effectiveness if you weigh more than 165 lbs (74.84 kg) and is completely ineffective for those that weight more than 176 lbs (79.83 kg) (x)

Whhhhat?
Excuse me.
Let me spread the shit out of this.

This is horrifying. And sadly true.

sexednerd period-tips fuckyeahsexeducation plannedparenthood
is this true? It worked for me and I weighed 185lbs at the time I took the pill

Part true, studies show it does become less effective after 165 lbs, but we don’t have enough studies that I’m aware of that would indicate that it’s not effective at all after a certain weight. If you are over 165 lbs it’s best to use Ella. However, Ella is more expensive and only available with prescription. You can also use the copper IUD, but again that can be expensive if your insurance doesn’t cover it and it would be best to continue to use it as birth control. It’s definitely something that needs to be worked on.

You may remember me telling you all about an Anti-Discrimination ordinance happening in my home town where I live currently that protects all persons in our city from discrimination based on a variety of reasons and ensures equal access to employment, housing, and public accommodations. There’s been horrible opposition against us and they have gotten petition signatures to try to repeal this act and bring it up for a vote. Of course as we all know, any time the majority makes a vote it rarely goes with the oppressed “minority”. We’re trying to do a lot to stop it.

If all of you could please pass along this post on tumblr and other social networking sites to get it seen by citizens of Fayetteville Arkansas so that they can take a stand that would be amazing.

There’s a facebook, https://www.facebook.com/keepfayettevillefair that gives information showing the misinformation the opposition is spreading and showing how much we need this ordinance and how it would help. You can also post your own personal stories about discrimination in fayetteville arkansas (you can email them your story to keep it anonymous), so that we can show them both the facts and emotions behind us.

You can also contact the NWA Center For Equality (http://www.nwacenterforequality.org/) If you’d like more information on how you can help. They also can help you register to vote if you want to be able to vote in the next local election that may determine our fate. You need to do this as soon as possible in the next couple of days because time is running out to register to vote for this next election.

If you are too young to vote, want to do more than share your story, and would like to work with other youths I do have a tumblr: http://nwa-gsa.tumblr.com/ I’m going to be seeing what we can do as far as advocacy work for teens and young adults. I encourage you to still check in with the Center for Equality, but if you have any ideas on youth-centered activism please message me and let me know.

We all need to stick together right now.

If anyone from any other states who have gone through similar situations has any advice for us let me know.

[source here]

Happy reading! Any banned or challenged books by authors of color that you think we should check out?

Also, why don’t they just rename it Toni Morrison Week, amIright? 

A lot of the sex education books for teens and pre-teens and children are on this list, including some I’ve reviewed for FYSE. I’m super passionate about banned books because fiction is where we get a lot of our education, especially about sex and life.

I'm getting an abortion on Tuesday. I'm fucking scared of the people who will be waiting for me outside. What should I do? This is such a random ask but after reading your blog I feel like you would give me a real answer. You don't have to if you want to.

princess-passion-flower:

I am sure there will be protesters there, and they WILL be holding signs probably with graphics that are disturbing. Just reassure yourself in knowing these are scare tactics, and 100% are embellished and false. If people are there, they will probably be pretty loud, so take an MP3 player with you to try and drown out the noise.

Any of my followers have any advice?

I would call the clinic first. Some clinics don’t get a lot of protesters, and some that do have volunteers that will walk you to and from the clinic. Also, there are people who work as abortion doulas, people trained to support you. You can see if there are any in your area. Other than that, hold your head high and ignore those (pardon my language) motherfuckers. Know that you are 1000% better than them.

Would it be okay to take birth control with anti-depressants and anti-psychotics?

themidwifeisin:

There are a lot of birth control methods that would definitely work for you, depending on the actual medications that you’re taking.  

Combined oral birth control (estrogen & progesterone) has the most interactions with other medications out of all birth control.  Here is the list:

  • Anticonvulsants: including phenytoin, carbamazepine, barbiturates,primidone, topiramate, or oxcarbazepine.  People on these medications can use Depo Provera, or continue using birth control pills if they understand the risks involved.
    Anticonvulsants that do not reduce the efficacy of birth control include include gabapentinlamotriginelevetiracetam, and tiagabine.
  • Antibiotics: Rifampin is the only antibiotic proven to decrease the efficacy of birth control pills.  When taking any other antibiotic, there is no need for back up during that time.
  • Herbs: St. John’s Wort can decrease the effectiveness of birth control.
  • HIV medications: there are many drug interactions between HIV meds and birth control, but it is very important for people with HIV to have effective birth control when they are not planning pregnancy.  If you have HIV, speak with your healthcare provider to pick the birth control method that is perfect for you.
  • Others: There is a potential interaction between fluconazole (diflucan) and birth control, as well as grapefruit juice and birth control.  In these situations instead of decreasing the effectiveness, the interaction actually makes the levels of estrogen and progesterone in the blood higher.  It is unclear what effect this has.

I hope that helps!  If you’re considering birth control, check out this nifty flow-chart I made a while back:

My girlfriends tits are ugly from weightloss what exercises can she do?

blondesquats:

What the fuck do you think is gunna happen when you lose weight from your chest.. they’re going to magically turn into perky rainbow titties?? Instead of coming to me for exercises you should exit her life she don’t need no man calling her tits ugly. You should be asking me how to fix that stank personality.

This is basically my response to anyone wanting to change their partner’s body.

"Young women on the reservation live their lives in anticipation of being raped. They talk about, ‘How will I survive my rape?’ as opposed to not even thinking about it. We shouldn’t have to live our lives that way."
