blog advertising is good for you
Fuck yeah, feminists!

A place to celebrate anything anti-oppression, anti-kyriarchy, anti-hate and pro-equality.

Run by two feminists who try to link to and reblog anything that is relevant to feminists today (almost anything).

Pardon our dust

It isn’t enough for schools to find assailants responsible. They also need to be removed from campus.
