Sadhbh Walshe: Angelina Jolie was brave to share details of her double mastectomy, but it’s hardly an option for all women Angelina Jolie should be commended for her brave and difficult decision, not only to opt for a preventative double mastectomy to reduce her high risk of breast cancer, but to also speak publicly about it in the hopes of encouraging others to do the same.

Anonymous asked: You're wrong. The youtube removal process is automatic and they only review the video when contested. I will be mirroring a few of the flagged videos so that I can prove to you that they do not violate terms of service when I contest your flags.

Anonymous asked: I think it's shitty of you guys to false flag videos of people who use your videos for commentary. Using someone else's video for the purpose of commentary is not a violation of the rules or DMCA. I guess you'll learn about the Streisand Effect the hard way.
Anonymous asked: I have two straight friends (one even has a boyfriend) who refer to their friendship as if it was a same-sex relationship.

How A Female Photographer Sees Her Afghanistan →
pollgold: “Born in Kandahar, Afghanistan, in 1984, photographer Farzana Wahidy was only a teenager when the Taliban took over the country in 1996. At age 13 she was beaten in the street for not wearing a burqa, she recalls, and she describes those years as a “very closed, very dark time.” To carry a camera would have been unthinkable.”
a-love-thats-so-demanding: Instead of telling women to respect themselves and stop dressing “slutty” so should you just stop with your objectifying and sexism. It’s not the girls who should change their clothes, it’s you who need to show some respect. Everyone should be able to dress however they want without getting a sexist comment or hearing someone say that they don’t respect their bodies
