Muslim women who choose to wear the Hijab but are also Athletes of the fiercest kind.
tumblr has changed my opinion on headscarves, and made me realize it’s BULLSHIT that france has banned them. because if a woman is choosing to wear one as a religious choice, that’s not oppression. oppression is a ot of other small things, the headscarf is visible but also you can be badass w. one, like these ladies
Why are gay people forbidden a legal wedding, but vegetarians are allowed to marry, procreate, ride the bus and use our water fountains?
Here’s the thing about being 20 years old. It’s actually the universal age of passion. It’s the age at which nature and form come together and your individual passion achieves its final shape and expression. When, later in life, when you’re older, you feel furious, it’s the fury of a 20-year-old. When you fall in love, it’s the love of a 20-year-old. It’s articulate, it’s visceral, it’s platonic. It’s the pure form of the emotion. When you observe the hypocrisies and injustices of the world, and feel shocked and betrayed by them, you’re actually being 20 again. And yet, you’re just shy of being able to drink. How perfectly completed, and thwarted, at the same time.

Except you can’t show a topless woman on TV - and you can’t defibrillate a woman in a bra. So victims of heart attacks on TV are *always* male. Did you know that a woman having a heart attack is more likely to have back or jaw pain than chest or left arm pain? I didn’t - because I’ve never seen a woman having a heart attack. I’ve been trained in CPR and Advanced First Aid by the Red Cross over 15 times in my life, the videos and booklets always have a guy and say the same thing about clutching his chest and/or bicep.
And people laugh when I tell them women are still invisible in this world.
