stop telling girls
that they’re not skinny enough

stop telling girls
that their feet are too large

stop telling girls
that their stomachs need to be flat

stop telling girls
that they should always cross their legs

stop telling girls
that they have too much muscle

stop telling girls
that a d cup is too large

stop telling girls
that their thighs are too fat

stop telling girls
to suck in their guts

stop telling girls
not to sit like a man

stop telling girls
that their fucking curls are too big

stop telling girls
that they can’t take up space
like a fucking man can
because
yes
they
fucking
can

Q
""It's about having the confidence to say I don't want to do this" @CarrieHFletcher on pressure in #relationships " what the HECK
A

lexcanroar:

pottermoosh:

The full quote [1:56 in the video]:

Jimmy: What should you do if you feel pressured within a relationship to maybe have sex, or to send explicit pictures, or to do anything you don’t feel comfortable with?
Carrie: It’s about having the confidence and the self-esteem and the self-respect to say ‘I don’t want this’, ‘I don’t wanna do this.’

[Link].

(Note: this quote is followed by a discussion on consent, which is important, but it does approach it from the angle of ‘oh that can be quite romantic’ rather than ‘hey that’s a legal obligation’.)

Some people are saying that those who have been upset by this are “twisting Carrie’s words” - these were her exact words. Nobody needs to ‘twist’ them to see that she’s implying that victims are somehow at fault when they’re being pressured or coerced if they don’t say ‘no’. 

When you say that you need to have the confidence or self-respect to say no, you’re implying that people who DON’T say “no” or “I don’t want to do this” in those situations are doing so because of a LACK of self-respect or confidence. That they don’t say no because of some personal failing, and that if they had self-respect, they would be able to say no and this might have changed the outcome. This directly puts some of the blame on the victims of coercion or abuse. THIS IS HARMFUL. It doesn’t matter if that’s ‘not how she meant it’ as some people are claiming, because that’s exactly how she said it, and that’s how many viewers will understand it. If that’s really not what she meant, she has to accept that it’s what she implied, and that that responsibility lies with her and the 401 Show not with the victims of abuse who’ve been hurt by her words. Their feelings are the most important thing in this situation.

When you mess up and you make victims of abuse feel worse about what happened to them, you apologise. You take responsibility. That’s on you.

Father registers exciting photos of the birth of their 4 children in the sea

Births of babies are always exciting, especially when they happen in an environment so special and full of life as in the ocean. Russian Vladimir Bagrianski registered in fantastic photos the pregnancy of his wife, and the birth of her four children in the sea, which took place between 1986 and 1992. The series was named “Sunrise at sea.”

Births took place in different locations, but always with the ocean as the main scenario. The family is very attached to the teachings of the obstetrician and psychotherapist Igor Tcharkowsky, pioneered the method of water birth in 1963.
