I found this wise letter written to a, well, if i said what i wanted to, it would take too long. So, just read.

Dear Mr. Thatcher,

I have been a loyal user of your Always maxi pads for over 20 years, and I appreciate many of their features. Why, without the LeakGuard Core™ or Dri-Weave™ absorbency, I’d probably never go horseback riding or salsa dancing, and I’d certainly steer clear of running up and down the beach in tight, white shorts. But my favorite feature has to be your revolutionary Flexi-Wings. Kudos on being the only company smart enough to realize how crucial it is that maxi pads be aerodynamic. I can’t tell you how safe and secure I feel each month knowing there’s a little F-16 in my pants.

Have you ever had a menstrual period, Mr. Thatcher? Ever suffered from “the curse”? I’m guessing you haven’t. Well, my “time of the month” is starting right now. As I type, I can already feel hormonal forces violently surging through my body. Just a few minutes from now, my body will adjust and I’ll be transformed into what my husband likes to call “an inbred hillbilly with knife skills.” Isn’t the human...

I have seen this somewhere, probably even in this club, “this” being the statement that the best thing about being a woman is the ability to doll yourself up. I must say that I have been completely confused. I cannot understand why anyone would willingly objectify themselves and see it as something to be proud of. And, before you ask, I am not talking about BDSM or any variation thereof, because sexual preferences of consenting adults are absolutely none of my business. :) What I have in mind is making a doll out of yourself on a daily basis. One more thing, I am not trying to belittle or offend those who do so, merely attempting to understand the reasons behind it. Maybe I should have put it into answers section, but it is a bit long, so I have decided to post it as an article.

Firstly, the reason why I consider dolling oneself up a form of objectification is quite obvious – it is, after all, making one look similar to a Barbie doll by the use of make-up and clothes. I do not even want to begin the never ending rant “Why Barbie dolls enforce harmful gender stereotypes”, it would simply take too much time. So, the thing that puzzles me is this: why does...

Over It
by Eve Ensler
Tony award winning playwright, performer and activist

www.huffingtonpost.com/eve-ensler/over-it_b_1089013.html

I am over rape.

I am over rape culture, rape mentality, rape pages on Facebook.

I am over the thousands of people who signed those pages with their real names without shame.

I am over people demanding their right to rape pages, and calling it freedom of speech or justifying it as a joke.

I am over people not understanding that rape is not a joke and I am over being told I don't have a sense of humor, and women don't have a sense of humor, when most women I know (and I know a lot) are really fucking funny. We just don't think that uninvited penises up our anus, or our vagina is a laugh riot.

I am over how long it seems to take anyone to ever respond to rape.
