Vicky Form is a Mexican lingerie company that has recently released a campaign called ”New commandments for women.”
1. I shall never call another woman a whore.
2. No one can convince me from not wearing a condom.
3. I shall never get pregnant just to keep a man by my side.
4. No one can judge me based on the number of people I’ve slept with.
5. Is my responsibility to fight for my own (woman) rights.
6. I will not tolerate any kind of violence towards myself.
7. I will not fear or be ashamed if I find myself attracted to woman.
8. It is my decision if i want to get married or not. (and don’t deserve to be judged for it.)
I find this campaign to be a ‘big deal’ for the fact that is released in Mexico. One of the most sexists, closed minded and underdeveloped countries in the world.
Not so many companies take the risk to make advertisements like this because they’re obviously going to be criticized and possibly be affected by it.
Someone is taking the risk, telling the truth, and trying to get to the minds of the people. Sharing the fact that we are all human, and have to be equally treated like it, leading to a better and more developed society.
Its a big step for Mexico, and for women.
Joan Jett’s jacket. Notice the pins.
"keep abortion legal"
"If she says no, it’s rape"
"Pro fucking choice"
This jacket is from about thirty years ago. These issues were big then. Thirty years later, these issues are still present. I was amazed to find these pins on the jacket, and realize this, because I would have thought, back then, if I was alive, that those issues would be solved by NOW.
But they aren’t. Joan Jett knew what was up.
Why can’t we take a minute and soak in her “bad reputation” and think about how in thirty years, abortion and rape culture STILL are huge issues.

AHHHHHHHH JOAN JETT IS THE BEST!!!
Joan ROCKS. And I’d bet that when we were protesting these issues, she didn’t dream that we’d still be fighting them all these years later. Neither did I. So glad to have a new generation of women to help fight the good fight…because it never ends.
Sources at the White House said President Obama was “still trying to get his head around all this” and was in seclusion with his coin collection, muttering “it’s just metal, it’s just metal” over and over again.
“The president will be making a statement very soon,” press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters. “At the moment, though, his mind is just too blown to comment.”
“One child is holding something that’s been banned in America to protect them. Guess which one?”
Oxford University students on why we need feminism
With the start of the Spring Training schedule kicking off today, the New York Yankees already have a leg up on the competition — they’re baseball’s self-avowedly most evil team. In 2008, Evil Enterprises Inc. applied for a trademark on the phrase “Baseballs Evil Empire” (no sticklers for apostrophes, apparently), which the Yankees contested and took to court. Their claim? That the phrase “evil empire” is synonymous with the New York Yankees (originally coined derisively by Red Sox president Larry Lucchino in 2002). As they admitted, the team “implicitly embraced” this monolithic image by playing music from Star Wars during their home games, and the presiding judges agreed: “In short, the record shows that there is only one Evil Empire in baseball and it is the New York Yankees.” (Photo by Eric Beato) source
