Janet Mock on Beyoncé’s feminism.

We can be sexual, sexy and flawless while advocating and fighting and educating and uplifting and critiquing and challenging and giving and everything.

Creamy Zucchini SpaghettiThis dish is SO healthy as it uses a lot of substitutions but the flavours and textures are still all there! The regular spaghetti is subbed with zucchini/ courgette spaghetti (you can of course still use regular pasta or if you don’t have a spiralizer used julienned or shaved veg) and the creamy guacamole sauce uses Total Greek Yoghurt in place of half of the avocado. Creamy pasta…no guilt!RECIPE

Men who want to be feminists do not need to be given a space in feminism. They need to take the space they have in society & make it feminist.

Convince yourself that you are working in clay, not marble, on paper not eternal bronze: Let that first sentence be as stupid as it wishes.

Here’s a sure-fire way to know that you hate women: when an incident of intimate partner violence in which a man knocks a woman unconscious gains national attention and every question or comment you think to make has to do with her behavior, you really hate women. Like, despise.

There is no other explanation. There is no “I need all the facts.” There is no excuse. You hate women. Own it.

Now, you probably don’t believe you hate women. You probably honestly think you’re being an objective observer whose only interest is the truth. You are delusional.

We have this problem in our discourse around the most important challenges we face where we feel we have to be “fair to both sides.” But sometimes, one of those sides is subjugation and oppression. If you’re OK with legitimizing that side in the interest of “fairness,” you’re essentially saying you’re OK with oppression as a part of the human condition. That’s some hateful shit.
