rosalind franklin discovered the double helix in dna but her research was stolen by two men before she could properly share the information and now watson and crick are famous for what she spent years studying

Plus she developed ovarian cancer that was most likely caused by radiation from the HUNDREDS of hours spent using x ray crystallography to ascertain the structure. She literally worked herself to death to be a footnote in most genetics textbooks.

who’s arms would I run and fall into
if I were drunk

I just feel like people need to be reminded this. You can be funny, smart and cute and you don’t suddenly become that just because someone says you are. You were all that before too.

Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.

I’ve gotten more angry asks about this post than I have actual reblogs.

We live in a world where Sam Pepper can sexually assault women, document it and receive a lot of support from people calling it a ‘harmless prank’, and Emma Watson can stand up for equal rights for women and have her nude photos leaked over the Internet.

And you’re telling me we don’t need feminism?

This is an actual article and I’m still having a hard time believing it’s real.

What the actual fuck

"(For those of you who want below-the-knee skirts at work, please note that this is the same analysis to support the wearing of a Burka: men can’t control themselves so women need to cover up.)"

Fuck off into the depths of hell

"The trend of labeling women “crazy” is part of the culture that socializes women to go along to get along. When women are told over and over again that they’re not allowed to feel the way they feel and that they’re being “unreasonable” or “oversensitive”, they’re conditioned to not trust their own emotions. Their behavior – being assertive, even demanding or standing up for how they feel – becomes an “inconvenience” to men and they’re taught not to give offense and to consider the feelings of others before their own."
