“ ‘Men get raped and molested,’ should be a whole sentence. If you have to tack on the word ‘too,’ then you’re using the experience of male victims to silence females instead of giving them their own space. ”

Not sure if I’ve reblogged this before but it always bears repeating.

And placing a “too” usually means that you don’t really give a shit about rape survivors, but want to derail any points made about women who are raped.

Newborn baby stuns doctors by holding her own bottle (in the UK)

A baby girl has amazed doctors with her ability to hold her own feeding bottle. Two-week-old Ammra was able to grasp her bottle alone just three days after she was born at Queen’s Hospital, Romford in Essex, her mother Onyi Chiedozie said.The 20-year-old, who is using a combination of breast and bottle feeding, said doctors and nurses were stunned by the baby’s ability to master her strong grip so soon after she was born.

this baby is gonna be a brain surgeon when she’s like 10

For people who are like big deal, she held a cup.

My nephew didn’t hold a bottle till he was like one.  Most babies don’t know how to process gravity or the concept of if you grip the bottle it stays close to you where you can suckle it and if you tilt it back the liquid is accessible and it’s a lot to process for a baby okay.

This baby is way ahead in neuromuscular and cognitive development. She’s one of the xmen probably, it’s really amazing, the equivalent of a baby saying it’s first word at 2 months old ok it’s really amazing

love and support and celebrate fat girls who don’t have a booty or like in general fat girls with the fat in places that never get celebrated p l e a s e for the love of everything that is good in this world

like let’s not pretend curvy is a synonym for fat curvy is literally just this one specific socially acceptable way to be fat and I am getting increasingly frustrated about it

I support black atheists because religion is so deeply ingrained in black culture in America that it is easy to wind up ostracized (one of the many oppressive tools of religion) and alone. It is much more than just a declaration of freedom from religion, but a statement against society as a whole and can carry many consequences.

I greatly respect and admire their courage in standing up to established ways that have taken advantage of them over the centuries.

All atheists need to stand together. Many religious folks would love to see atheists divisive in the first place. Why give them fuel for their fire?
