This world is mad.

In today’s edition of ‘Unnecessarily Gendered Items’

the only tea u should drink is


I was actually curious about this and so looked up the ingredients of each tea to see if there was an actual reason as to why they would be gendered.
Men’s tea: ginger, cardamom, liquorice, carob, cinnamon, barley malt, roasted chicory, peppermint, fenugreek, fennel, mace, anise, ginseng flowers, astragalus, turmeric root, chili pepper, cinnamon extract (natural flavour), black pepper. 
Women’s tea: ginger, cinnamon, orange peel, fennel, chamomile, barley malt, dandelion, black pepper, orange extract (natural flavour), juniper berries, liquorice, cardamom, cloves, angelica root extract (natural flavour).
I know from previous research that angelica root is used in some herbal remedies for menstruation, and we know chamomile has been used for soothing nerves.  The male tea has has more hot spices (which increases blood flow) and fenugreek (which apparently increases libido). 
This translates to: Period Tea, and Boner Tea.
Thanks, Yogi.

Genius Duke project calls out the offensive phrases we say every day

The normalization of homophobic and misogynistic language, especially among young people, is nothing new. But while there may be a growing awareness of the problem, there haven’t been many organized initiatives dedicated to eradicate these types of problematic expressions — until now. Enter Duke University’s campaign “You Don’t Say,” which is an effort to remind students that language is powerful, and that word choice has consequences. 

The Duke project uses photos to show how casual slurs like “no homo,” “tranny,” “that’s so gay” and “you’re such a pussy” target women and the LGBT community. In the series, Blue Devils students explain why they have adjusted their language.

nine photographs portraying quotes said to sexual assault survivors by police officers, attorneys, and other authority figures

previously: nine photographs portraying quotes said to sexual assault survivors by their friends/family

These photos make me cringe.

These photo’s make me upset and angry. 

I am filled with such a violent rage. This is why I believe vigilantes need to exist. Because rape culture causes justice to rarely be served. 

this is so wrong and makes me so fucking angry UGH
