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).

Really cool woman Lizzie Velasquez! Ms. Velasquez was born with a rare medical condition that keeps her body from building adipose and muscle tissues. In this video, she talks about the horrible harassment and bullying she has been through, and talks about living her life to the fullest to be an inspiration to others. She is a published author and college student.

Now 23 years old, she’s been a motivational speaker for seven years and has given more than 200 workshops on embracing uniqueness, dealing with bullies, and overcoming obstacles. She’s a senior majoring in Communications at Texas State University in San Marcos, where she lives with her best friend. Her first book, “Lizzie Beautiful,” came out in 2010 and her second, "Be Beautiful, Be You," was published earlier this month. 

"The stares are what I’m really dealing with in public right now," she told Dr. Drew Pinsky in an interview on CNN’s Headline News this week. “But I think I’m getting to the point where… instead of sitting by and watching people judge me, I’m starting to want to go up to these people and introduce myself or give them my card and say, ‘Hi, I’m Lizzie. Maybe you should stop staring and start learning’.”
