A lot of the questions I’m getting lately involve some form of the question, “Am I gay because [reasons]?”
I cannot definitely tell you one way or the other if you’re gay. Only YOU can figure that out. It’s something that some people just innately know, and for others it…
Girls, we all know about the agony of period cramps. I’ll just tell you what to do and what not to do.
Don’t cry. You make yourself even more tense.
Don’t drink anything with caffeine or eat foods that are high in sodium and sugar.

An art student at my school, Western Kentucky University, is getting tons of national heat right now for her own backlash against a pro-life group. The group covered an entire set of bleachers with 4,000 crosses and from the art classroom windows you could see that it spelled out the word “LIFE.” They also targeted students walking by and asked them questions about abortion and had a board up that said, “How do you justify abortion?” This went on for a full week. She, I and many others at my school felt voiceless and bombarded. She responded with an art piece for her class, which was covering the crosses in condoms. The university police did not interfere as it was a freedom of speech, but now my school administration is demanding a public apology from her and does not support her actions. She has so far refused to apologize, but nationally, there is no one on her side, especially since Fox News got involved.
Please read this blog post by a gender and women’s studies professor at WKU for more details and educated insight. Show support and show this student and my school that she does not owe an apology. We’re trying to make this viral enough to where we can get Rachel Maddow to pay attention and speak out about it. Help spread the word, reblog this post and let’s overtake the bigoted anti-choice voices that are attacking this student right now.
EDIT: There is now a petition that will be sent to the school. Please sign and spread this around!
I only need 30 signatures. 30! Please get this out, get it signed and let me wake up tomorrow to a completed petition.
Planned Parenthood is excited to be launching our new Tumblr that’s all about sexual and reproductive health – bodies, birth control, relationship issues, “is it normal for this to do this?” type things. In the coming weeks and months we’ll be sharing what we know, answering questions, and just… tumblring.
We hope you like it! And we hope it helps.
Important! Follow, follow, follow!
Slavery by Another Name is a 90-minute documentary that challenges one of Americans’ most cherished assumptions: the belief that slavery in this country ended with the Emancipation Proclamation. The film tells how even as chattel slavery came to an end in the South in 1865, thousands of African Americans were pulled back into forced labor with shocking force and brutality.
If you have the time, watch this. If you can’t watch it now, bookmark it and watch it later. If you have to watch it in little bits, do that. Spread this around and make sure other people watch it too.

On October 3, 2012 (in my timezone, which would be early October 2 for most of you), I and millions of internet users in the Philippines have officially become criminals, liable to be jailed for up to 12 years.
I will understand if you don’t care. After all, the Philippines seems…
