Normalize fat women’s bodies. Normalize public breastfeeding. Normalize home births and midwives and reproductive autonomy. Normalize body hair on women.
Reject the notion that women are to be regulated and controlled and pressured to conform to societal standards.

11 ways to solve rape better than nail polish

The more we depend on women to prevent rape, the easier it is to blame them when it happens to them. Here’s a look at the well-documented ways we can actually stop rape. Maybe it’s time we invest a little more time and resources into implementing them before we send gallons of nail polish to colleges across the country.

Read the full list | Follow micdotcom

I’ve known too many women to be raped, had nurses and liaison officers tell them that they had enough evidence, and then the police do fuck all to the rapist and let him walk free and continue his life as normal while the victim has to struggle every day to cope with the shit they put them through.

This has happened to too many women I love. Way too fucking many.

One person I know who was raped, the police even found CCTV footage of the actual incident, but apparently that wasn’t enough to convict him either.

Think about that.

But you have to understand that when both my cousin and I came out as bisexual to our great-aunt, she told us we were too young to label ourselves.

You have to understand that both of my brothers are gay and came out to her before the ages of 15. She had absolutely no problem.

My great-aunt is a 69 year old lesbian.

You have to understand that not every aspect of biphobia has to do with homophobia.

Hate doesn’t breed hate. Hate inspires anger in victims of hatred and that anger is called hatred to delegitimize it and villainize people. If you wanna help people who are victims then first you gotta stop acting like they’re just as bad their oppressors and abusers.

The scientific method. Use. Use the scientific method. “We may never know.” Bologna. Use the scientific method.

They don’t have that. They have MAGIC.

Where there are patterns of cause and effect, the scientific method has insight. But if they’d started using it we’d all be aparating on fucking Mars by now.

The scientific method isn’t really a great way to determine “hmm how did this baby not die when all those other people did” because what are you gonna do to prove whatever your hypothesis is? Avada Kedavra at a bunch of babies whose parents love them very much? Good luck finding your test subjects, dude.

They could have done autopsies on the victims of the Avada Kedavra curse, compared to autopsies on people who died of natural causes, eventually isolating the true cause-of-death in the bodies of the victims, and then use this new understanding to create an effective counter-curse without anyone needing to sacrifice their life for their child.
The scientific method could also be used to isolate the composition of Phoenix tears, the process by which they spark perfect cellular regeneration, and then synthesize an artificial version with the same effects, essentially rendering all of medical science obsolete. 
The “can’t be done” and “we may never know” attitude of the wizarding world has seriously limited their ability to progress as a society.

look okay they’re still using medieval quills over pencils, I think cellular regeneration is still many innovations away in the wizarding world

Yeah but they could make all of those leaps in like a week if they used the scientific method. Bring in like, ten muggle scientists, get them to analyze the shit out of everything, then send them home with some extra spending money and fabricated memories of a science conference out-of-town

Don’t get it mixed up. I’m not just advocating science for the sake of better understanding. I’m a slytherin, so I’m looking for practical applications for the knowledge gained through use of the scientific method. 
For example, why is the wizarding world still effectively using carrier pigeons? Sirius Black demonstrated that instantaneous communication is possible via the floo network, so why not fill cigarette lighters with floo powder? This would not only be the wizarding equivalent of a cell phone, but would also allow streamline the process of creating entryways into the floo network.
There are people, like Tonks, who can rewrite their own genetic code with a thought. There are people, like McGonagall, who can completely change species and retain human cognition. There are potions, like Polyjuice, that rewrite your genetic code temporarily, replicating both a person’s nature and nurture. They’ve naturally perfected genetic engineering, but their understanding of how these processes work has left them completely unable to apply it practically.
For example, if they did a little bit of research and development, they could isolate the genes that allow for magical abilities, replicate the process by which Polyjuice Potion works, and synthesize a new potion that allows people like Filch, who were born squibs but desperately want to be wizards, to drink a little bit of potion every day so they’re able to use magic. 
Or, if they isolate the genes that allow Tonks and Teddy to rewrite their genetic code at will, as well as the process by which animagi are able to retain their human consciousness while in an animal body, they could easily create an effective treatment for lycanthropy that allows werewolves like Lupin to control the shift between man and wolf and retain control of themselves while in wolf form. 
Additionally, if they did research on what contagion causes lycanthropy, they would be so much closer to creating a vaccine that makes it significantly less communicable.
