Signal boosting in case anyone needed to know this. 

This is informative as heck. Show this to everyone!

This is actually some great info! Why can’t they teach this kind of thing in school??

Wow, I’ve taken health and sex ed three times during my educational process and never learned any of this. Thanks.

Definitely some important information here!

this is supa awesome.  i do think it should be noted that side effects of EC *really* vary.  when I took EC I didn’t have any symptoms whatsoever.  

The more you know~

*High five.* This is amazing. We also did a video about EC if you’re interested, although, TBH, the above pretty much covers it. 

Anonymous: I personally hate how sex+ feminists only focus on slut-shaming. Women are also pressured to have sex. It may not manifest itself in the same way as slut-shaming. Like I wouldn't call it "prude/virgin- shaming," but it does make women feel forced to participate in sexual activity they aren't comfortable with b/c they feel they have to meet men's sexual demands. I think male entitlement really needs to be addressed.

i hate that i have to spend extra time to take care of my dark skinned sistas. it’s 2014, you would think we’d be far enough along.

lovelyandbrown:

but colorism still exists, and in some circles, is just as rampant.

so until it isn’t, i’ll always take up arms for my fellow sistas with multitudes of melanin.

and if anyone has a problem with that, you can go.

punkgender:

one of the worst things about becoming educated on social issues is when people are like ‘you used to have a sense of humor’

no i used to have internalized prejudices which i’ve worked really hard to overcome and i realize now that your jokes are shitty

Anonymous: From your experiences as a black man, and someone who is a friend to black men, why do you think so many black men look down on black women? is it them clinging to whiteness.

I am fortunate in that none of the black men I associate with have this viewpoint.

Anonymous: you're one of the few black men i follow on tumblr that reblogs a diverse set of black girls. not just light skin and skinny. why is that?

Short answer: Because representation is important.

Long answer: The women in my family aren’t all model thin and lightskinned. The girls I’ve dated aren’t, not is the girl I am dating. The women I’m attracted to, the women I see every day, they aren’t all model-thin and lightskinned. Why would I perpetuate and spread only one image of black womanhood, and the image that is already widely perpetuated by most media, when there is more than that? If I have an opportunity and a platform to spread positivity, why would I do anything else? That’s not how my mother, a beautiful, short, brownskinned, woman, raised me.

Also, your question didn’t refer to black males, but everything in this answer can be applied to black males as well, who I also try to reblog as much as I can.
