    Welcome to Advanced Sex Ed, Planned Parenthood’s newest Tumblr segment. Put on your smarty pants because we’re kicking things up a notch with some higher-level sexual learnin’.

    Birth Control Effectiveness Rates: Perfect-Use vs. Typical-Use.

    “Why are there…

  2. Here’s some fantastic news for your Friday: On Thursday, the California Senate unanimously approved a new bill that defines sexual consent as a firm “yes” rather than a lack of “no.”

    micdotcom:

    This is a big win for anti-rape activists, many of whom have been touting the necessity of an “affirmative consent” standard for years. California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has the next month to sign the bill into law. If he does, schools across the state would be required to define consent before engaging in sexual activity as an “affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement” or risk losing state financial aid funding.

Navajo Kindergartner Sent Home from School, Ordered to Cut His Hair
On Monday, a 5-year-old Native American boy was sent home on his first day of school and ordered to cut his hair short because it allegedly violated district policy, the boy’s mother said.The child, Malachi Wilson, an enrolled citizen of the Navajo Nation, had been looking forward to his first day of kindergarten at F.J. Young Elementary in Seminole, Texas.

I AM SEETHING.  FUCK THE CONTINUATION OF ASSIMILATION EFFORTS AND ASSAULT ON THE PHYSICAL, MENTAL, EMOTIONAL, AND SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING OF NATIVE AND INDIGENOUS PEOPLE. 
THIS COUNTRY HAS NO SHAME
NO CONSCIENCE
NO HISTORICAL BEARING
HAS AMERICA FORGOTTEN SO SOON?
THE TRAGEDY OF NATIVE CHILDREN FORCED TO LEAVE THEIR HOMES FOR RACIST BOARDING SCHOOLS?
WHERE THEIR HAIR WAS CUT? WHERE CHILDREN WERE BEATEN FOR SPEAKING THEIR MOTHER TONGUES? WHERE THEY WERE ABUSED AND FORCED TO HIDE THEIR CULTURE AS A WAY TO SURVIVE? 
NEVER FORGET. NEVER.

I literally took this photo by accident, I found it in my camera roll and it cleaned up nicely. it reminds me how Nashville needs to keep an eye on the past for lessons learned while it’s moving ever so quickly into it’s future. The legacy of a city happens because of the people in it . #nashvilletn #nashville #musiccity @piclab_hd! #piclabhd #snapseed (at Nashville, Tennessee)

    • Do not forget Michael Brown
    • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
    • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
    • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
    • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
    • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
    • Do not forget Ferguson

    I’m sure other people have posted about it by now, but there is nothing that made me smile harder today than the NFL finally taking a real stance on domestic violence. It’s something that should have been put into place a long time ago and I’m glad that it’s no longer being…

    Here is a side by side comparison of how The New York Times has profiled Michael Brown — an 18 year old black boy gunned down by police — and how they profiled Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers of all time.
