This is why doctors need to explain this stuff and why we need more family planning counselors. I haven’t gotten any questions this off but I get a lot of questions from people who don’t know what the side effects are or how the birth control works.
SEX ED IS IMPORTANT.
AND SO IS DOCTOR EXPLANATIONS AND PHARMACIST CONSULTATIONS.
I interviewed a young anthropologist working with women in Mali, a country in Africa where women go around with bare breasts. They’re always feeding their babies. And when she told them that in our culture men are fascinated with breasts there was an instant of shock. The women burst out laughing. They laughed so hard, they fell on the floor.
They said, “You mean, men act like babies?”
Carolyn Latteier, Breasts, the women’s perspective on an American obsession (via fuckyeahbreastfeedingscience)
(this is funny/an interesting observation except for the cissexism in it) (via the-treble)
While I understand the whole cissexism thing, it seems a bit odd to consider this cissexist (they’ve probably never even encountered someone who identified as anything other than cis).(via indexedbabe)
Plus, it’s a bit… Disrespectful(?) to label someone’s sexuality sexuality posthumously…
…but the problem is that if we DON’T talk about same-gender attracted people throughout history, straight people will erase…
How can you see into my eyes like open doors

I try to make selfies more interesting.
