Who’s laughing now??
These gifs are gold.
I will never tell my children that if a boy picks on them it means he likes them. I will teach my children that “Anyone who cares about you or loves you would never dream of hurting you. They would want to protect and nurture you.” End rape culture, stop nurturing abusive relationships, by teaching your kids differently.
Happy Spirit Day from Tumblr
Spirit Day was created in 2010 by teenager Brittany McMillan as a way to support bullied LGBT youth. This year, Spirit Day is October 19, and Tumblr’s staff joins with communities worldwide — inside and outside of Tumblr — to wear purple in support of anti-bullying efforts and LGBT rights generally.
FUCK NEGATIVITY: advice for life (by icallitambrosia)
News Anchor Takes Down A Bully of the Day: Last Friday, Wisconsin news anchor Jennifer Livingston received an email from a viewer attacking her weight.
This morning, she responded to him on the air:To the person who wrote me that letter — do you think I don’t know that? That your cruel words are pointing out something that I don’t see?…
Livingston went on to point out that October isNational Bullying Prevention Month, and that she hopes the incident will raise awareness of bullying behavior, which is “passed down from people like the man who wrote me that email.”If you are at home and talking about the fat news lady, guess what? Your children are probably going to go to school and call someone fat.
this made me tear up, thank god for people like her
Zoe Smith, gold medalist at the 2008 Commonwealth Youth Games at the age of 16.
Zoe Smith was harassed via twitter recently because some female stated she looked o manly and no guy would go for that. Here is the article. Seriously, shes an 18 year old Olympian in lifting, and you have a problem because she’s too muscular for you? wow.
Part of the article:
“We don’t lift weights in order to look hot, especially for the likes of men like that,” Smith wrote. “What makes them think that we even want them to find us attractive? If you do, thanks very much, we’re flattered. But if you don’t, why do you really need to voice this opinion in the first place?
“Shall we stop weightlifting, amend our diet in order to completely get rid of our ‘manly’ muscles, and become housewives in the sheer hope that one day you will look more favorably upon us and we might actually have a shot with you?
“This may be shocking to you, but we actually would rather be attractive to people who aren’t closed-minded and ignorant. Crazy, eh?! We, as any woman with an ounce of self-confidence would, prefer our men to be confident enough in themselves to not feel emasculated by the fact that we aren’t weak and feeble.”
Winona Ryder in high school
“I was wearing an old Salvation Army shop boy’s suit. As I went to the bathroom I heard people saying, ‘Hey, faggot’. They slammed my head into a locker. I fell to the ground and they started to kick the shit out of me. I had to have stitches. The school kicked me out, not the bullies.
“Years later, I went to a coffee shop and I ran into one of the girls who’d kicked me, and she said, ‘Winona, Winona, can I have your autograph?’ And I said, ‘Do you remember me? Remember in seventh grade you beat up that kid?’ And she said, ‘Kind of’. And I said, ‘That was me. Go fuck yourself.’”
