I keep seeing people say “Rihanna is always naked” in an attempt to trivialize the fact that her privacy was invaded. It doesn’t matter how often Rihanna shows us her titties because it’s always on her terms. It’s not okay that someone hacked her personal photos. And that goes for all of the celeb women who are being victimized right now. Their privacy is being invaded and y’all are acting like vultures.

Sometimes I remind myself that I almost skipped the party, that I almost went to a different college, that the whim of a minute could have changed everything and everyone. Our lives, so settled, so specific, are built on happenstance.

The fact is, a 14-year-old girl may be capable of agreeing to sex with a 49-year-old man, but she doesn’t have the emotional and mental maturity to consent. I was 25 before I realized that every man I’d slept with as a teenager was a pedophile. It seemed to me that since I’d courted the attention, that I was fully culpable. What teenager believes she is not mentally or emotionally capable of full consent? I thought I was an adult, although when I look at the picture of myself from the time period above, I see a child.

I thought I was the exception for these men, the girl so precocious and advanced that it superseded social norms. I thought that I was “older than my chronological age.”

It never occurred to me as a young sexually active teen that the adult men I had relationships with may have been manipulating me, that they had designs and motives I couldn’t see from my limited child’s perspective.

Everyone should read this article if they haven’t already. The anecdotes are upsetting and carry major TW (pedophilia, graphic depictions of sex), but the message is just so on point.

hey sooooo remember how the police in ferguson were going to start wearing body cameras

the police officers’ union is bringing out every last excuse to keep it from actually happening

actual quote from the article: “This gotcha discipline that we have with the dash board cameras is what we’d be afraid of,” Roorda said.

"gotcha discipline"

basically “any tangible way of holding us accountable for abusing our power is what we’d be afraid of”

The actual definition of Bisexuality, by actual Bisexuals.

fandomsandfeminism:

I’m sure you’ve all heard the tired old “bisexual means you only like men and women!” or even worse, “only CIS men and women!” These definitions, as I’m sure we’re aware, are total bullshit. (And super problematic on top) 

Since I complied this list for a reblog, I thought it might be nice to make it it’s own post as well, so we can get it in the tags. Ready to learn how actual bisexuals actually define bisexuality? 

Here we go:

There you go. This definition has been in use by nearly all major bisexual organizations for decades. :) 

A few nice links:

Bi Resource.Net has a whole page on “what is bisexuality”, but the quote I like most from (from Robyn Orch) is “I call myself bisexual because I acknowledge in myself the potential to be attracted, romantically and/or sexually, to people of more than one sex, not necessarily at the same time, not necessarily in the same way, and not necessarily to the same degree.” 

The Bisexual Index likewise has a whole page on the topic. They conclude with “Bisexuality isn’t more complicated than that - “attraction to more than one gender”.” 

Bialogue is much more to the point, stating:  ”Bisexuals = people who can [love] people of same gender as themselves + can [love] people of different genders/gender presentations from themselves” 

The Bisexuality Report (Which was a collaboration between BiUK AND the Bisexual index) goes REALLY specific with “Bisexuality generally refers to having attraction to more than one gender. It is a broad term which may include the following groups and more:
●● People who see themselves as attracted to ‘both men and women’.
●● People who are mostly attracted to one gender but recognize this is not exclusive.
●● People who experience their sexual identities as fluid and changeable over time.
●● People who see their attraction as ‘regardless of gender’ (other aspects are more important in determining who they are attracted to).
●● People who dispute the idea that there are only two genders and that people are attracted to one, the other, or both” 

International Spectrum has a whole list of definitions and defines bisexual as “A person who is attracted to both people of their own gender and another gender. “ 

The Bisexual Resource center says “The BRC uses bisexual as an umbrella term for people who recognize and honor their potential for sexual and emotional attraction to more than one gender”
