America’s War on Yoga Pants - Fashion - Boston.com

Banning yoga pants because they’re “distracting” to adolescent boys? Is this really how we’re raising kids these days? I’m all for appropriate attire at school but if we are forcing young women to dress in a certain way for the benefit of young boys - what happens when those boys become men? Will they continue to expect women to dress certain ways to benefit them? Women can’t make progress in the work place if men like that.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt on Being A Feminist

"I do call myself a feminist," he said. "Absolutely!"

San Francisco was built on a sand bank on top of a fault line which is the worst idea, but even after 1906 everybody pretty much said “lol fuck it, too late” and kept going.

The media hates women and feminism and tries to convince us we hate them too but the younger generation have the internet, they know how to use it for feminist politics so f*** you.
