We let Willow cut her hair. When you have a little girl, it’s like how can you teach her that you’re in control of her body? If I teach her that I’m in charge of whether or not she can touch her hair, she’s going to replace me with some other man when she goes out in the world. She can’t cut my hair but that’s her hair. She has got to have command of her body. So when she goes out into the world, she’s going out with a command that it is hers. She is used to making those decisions herself. We try to keep giving them those decisions until they can hold the full weight of their lives.

- He raises a really great point. What would it mean to believe very early that my body was mine. That it’s not for anyone or for any particular purpose other than to be mine until I decide otherwise.

I was damned near 30 before I could believe my body belonged to me & me alone. Dear people who take an issue with this,

Let the Smiths do right by their babies & shut the fuck up about how you think they should parent.

[I]t is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America.

Is it okay to use the word “hysterically” considering it comes from “hytera” meaning “uterus” in Greek?

I personally am not sure if the word itself is offensive anymore, though it is used more often on women than men for known historical reasons (ie. hysteria). I do see it being used to describe men though. So i’m really not sure. What do my followers think?

I am generally okay with hysterical being used in the sense of ‘hysterically funny,’ but not ‘omg calm down you’re being ~hysterical~”. Especially when the second one is leveled at women trying to explain why something is sexist.
That is just my feeling though, so if someone were to say they find hysterical offensive in all contexts, I respect that.

This. Had someone use the second one exactly like that recently. RAGE! I don’t have a problem with things being hysterically funny. Yet.

This is a letter I found online to a girl named Crystal who was suffering with a deep bout of depression in 2006 and wrote to Stephen Fry for some advice/encouragement since he himself has been through so many ups and downs.

This is what Crystal says: “I had no idea who to turn to. But I really…

In the instances when POC say shit like ‘Oh I can’t stand white folk’ or ‘Damn white people’, they aren’t saying ‘Oh I think they are inferior, I want to humiliate them, abuse them, enslave them and wipe out their people!’, they’re saying ‘Damn, after a couple hundred years of white people thinking I’m inferior, humiliating me, abusing me, enslaving me, and trying to wipe out my people, I don’t wanna deal with them.’ The context is completely different.
