Stop comparing being fully shaved to looking like a baby 2k14. If a woman wants to shave everything, then she’s still a woman and still looks like a woman.

and some women look like that whether they want to or not

if you remove all signs of puberty because your boyfriend finds you more attractive as a pre-teen schoolgirl then yeah that’s fucked up I’m going to call it fucked up

if you think that makes women look like pre-teen schoolgirls you’re fucked up you’re completely fucked up

you only hate my eyebrows because they make me look too old for you, fucking pedo

All signs of puberty? Does that include deflating her breasts somehow??

not all women have large breast!

"Not all women"? That’s so typical of you. Stop being such an apologist.

"Girl Scouts promote lesbianism and abortion!"

Yes why do you think I bought 15 boxes of thin mints. 

Yes, but Girl Scout shouldn’t be a thing, it should just be Scouting of America!!

Girls Scouts became a thing because guys could not and still cannot handle women in their troops defend the girl scouts to the fucking death because we aren’t equal and taking away safe spaces for young girls won’t achieve that either 

I was a Girl Scout for thirteen years and my troop,  ran by my mother and ending with three girls and me, got the three girls the Gold Award, the highest award that a Girl Scout can achieve and the Girl Scouts’ equivalent of the Boy Scouts’ Eagle Scout. And if I see this post reblogged without commentary one more time I am going to scream.

Juliet Gordon Low, the founder of the Girl Scouts of America, was a Savannah-born woman born in 1860. She was upper-class and, because of chronic ear infections in one in as a child and a grain of good-luck rice (rice thrown at the bride and groom for luck) puncturing her other ear drum, almost entirely deaf.

Contrary to popular belief, Low was not the founder of the first scouting movement nor even the first female-exclusive scouting movement. That would actually be Lord Robert Baden-Powell, the original creator of the Boy Scouts, a scouting movement that does predate the Girl Scouts. As you can probably guess from his name alone Baden-Powell was not American. He was a British war veteran who in 1908 wrote the immensely popular book Scouting for Boys, talking about the boys’ scouting movement. This book went over very well, causing many mixed-gender scouting organizations to spring up across Europe. Seeing the interest girls had with scouting he and his sister Agnes Baden-Powell created the Girl Guides, a movement largely led by Agnes and predating the Girl Scouts by two years.

At around this time Gordon-Low had recently separated from her husband, and shortly after this separation he died. Having worked with her mother in running a hospital for soldiers wounded in the Spanish-American War until 1905, Gordon-Low decided to travel to Europe and look for a way to make an impact. In 1911 she met Robert and Agnes Baden-Powell and discovered the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides. She saw the youth movements they had formed and thought that American children could benefit from a similar program. Encouraged by Lord Baden-Powell, she came back to America. In 1912, the Girl Scouts of America (GSUSA) was born.

Juliette Gordon-Low was an amazing woman, something that I will never deny. I have much respect for her and she has been a hero of mine for as long as I can remember. I have visited her house, I have read books about her, and I respect the Girl Scouts. That is why I am writing this. I do not want to see a woman who I admire have her legacy rewritten in order to better suit the needs of the few. She deserves honor for what she was: an amazing woman who worked with other amazing men and women for the benefit of young girls.

So let’s talk about Girl Scout cookies. The proceeds of Girl Scout cookies go to the local council, with $0.35 per box going to the troop that sold the cookies. The council uses to money to put on programs (camp-outs, first aid training and certification, and Destinations) and fund any sort of local Girl Scout camp. The money that goes to the troop is used in the way the troop wants. Most use it to fund the activities that the troop puts on throughout the year. My troop personally used the money to go on trips together, with the last four years spending no money and saving it all for a big trip that we went on after high school graduation.

The Girl Scouts, unlike the Boy Scouts, is entirely apolitical (with the excaption of the “Ban Bossy” folly) and areligious. Which is to say the organization takes no stance on any political issue. Each troop may or may not be religiously affiliated, but from my experience most troops are also areligious and direct service and effort towards various nonpartisan efforts like poverty.

Like any other scouting organization, Girl Scouts puts a lot of focus on camping and survival skills. As a former aide at a Girl Scout camp, I had to be able to flip a water-logged canoe, read a compass, start and cook using a campfire, pitch a tent, row various forms of man-powered water transportation, and control 50 six-year-olds (a task much too high to ask one 13-year-old boy).

All that said about Girl Scouts, it’s time to talk about Boy Scouts. The BSA has come under fire recently and for good reason. Their stance on homosexuality and atheism is at best archaic and at worst openly discriminatory. However, while the organization itself needs to come a long way, like with Girl Scouts individual troops are welcoming to all boys from all walks of life. Most troops will take in atheistic or gay/bi boys and just never say anything to the larger organization. Also to claim that the exclusion from male scouting programs is in any way discriminatory when female scouting programs have existed for as long as interest from girls has been known is at best ignorant and at worst actively twisting the facts.

Also, men can be leaders of Girl Scout troops and women can be the scoutmaster for Boy Scouts. In fact, my brother was a Boy Scout for several years and at the time his scoutmaster was a woman. The Girl Scout camp where I volunteered and attended for over a decade had one of the most popular sessions led by a man. Both require that at least two adults be present and at least one be the gender of the scouting organization but otherwise men and women are free to participate in either or both.

Logicd is pure trash. I bet the people who agree with him are white supremacists. And society wonders why we’re pissed. If I were killed by a cop, everyone will think I was a thuggy baby-momma welfare queen with no education who was on drugs or something. They’ll say I deserve to be killed even though I have no criminal record whatsoever, and I’m the first in my family to graduate high school AND college. Racist stereotypes kill and people like logicd is why Ferguson is protesting. We’re tired of America devaluing black Americans just because we weren’t “lucky” to be born white. If Mike Brown or most of the Ferguson citizens were upper class white folks, that bigot wouldn’t say shit. 

It is amazing how many people have the exact same reaction to logicd being brought up.

What do you mean by that? Like, none of what they’re saying is wrong…

Preaching to the choir, buddy. Just pointing out a trend.

Anonymous said: Michael Brown absolutely deserved to be shot and killed. He robbed a store, assaulted an officer, attempted to steal his weapon and flee from said officer. The officer was in the hospital with a broken jaw from the assault. The police have a right to defend themselves.

misandryisalie:

Well, this is a new one. I didn’t even get the notification in my ask box. So here we go.

Missouri does currently have a death penalty in place. Capital crimes include aggravated kidnapping, drug trafficking, aircraft hijacking, and placing a bomb near a bus terminal but have basically been limited to first degree murder.

So let’s assume the very worst of Mike Brown. At absolute worst, Brown committed strong-arm robbery, jaywalking, attempting to steal a weapon, and resisting arrest. So what is our list again?

  • Aggravated kidnapping
  • Drug trafficking
  • Aircraft hijacking
  • Placing a bomb near a bus terminal
  • First degree murder

And even then, precedent basically states that only first degree murder will even begin the process of thinking about handing down the death penalty.

So what are Brown’s crimes?

  • Strong-arm robbery (1-20 years)
  • Jaywalking (fine)
  • Stealing an officer’s weapon (4 years)
  • Resisting arrest (fine and up to a year in county jail)

So I would really like to understand the reasoning of you thinking an 18-year-old boy who at worst committed crimes to get sentenced to a maximum of twenty years deserved to die.

His attempting to flee absolutely proves that the officer had no reason to fear for his life. If the assailant is running away, that means all risk for the officer’s life has vanished. Any attempting to harm the person after that is overkill.

Even beyond that, the police are not judge, jury, and executioner. No one person gets to decide if another gets to live or die, especially not one who is put in the position of keeping the community safe. Even if Mike Brown had done everything on the list of capital crimes in Missouri, he would not have deserved to die the way he did (not to say I support the death penalty, I have been outspoken against it since I wrote an opinion piece for my local paper when I was 13).

Do cops have the right to defend themselves? Yup, just like everyone else. Does shooting an unarmed boy six times count as defense? No fucking way, it is murder.

And excuse me if I am not moved by Wilson’s broken jaw. I would say that seeing how he is still on paid suspension by the FPD and Mike Brown is fucking dead, he came out of this with the better deal.
