"Don’t take a nude pic if you’re a famous woman and don’t want it leaked."

mysharona1987:

"Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."

"Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."

"Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."

"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."

Victim blaming 101: Everyone should live in fear from ever doing anything.

Everything Beyonce does is careful and thought out. Her entire image is perfection crafted from planning ahead. She does not ‘wing it’ or throw things into her performances and public appearances ‘just because’.
What she did at this award show was amazing, especially because of how intentional and thought out it clearly was.
Feminism is a scary word for a lot of people. Many women are afraid of calling themselves feminist because they think it implies anger, hatred of men, or a rejection of traditional femininity. 
Beyonce presented everyone watching with two distinct images of what many viewers viewed as two very different women. There is the strong, independent FEMINIST. She is the woman who likes being in control and being in the spotlight. Then there is the WIFE and MOTHER. She is soft, sweet, smiling at the husband and child you can tell she loves and values so much.
For every girl watching who was afraid to be a feminist, afraid to be powerful, because of what she thought she would lose, this is an incredible message. You can be all the things you want to be. You can be both. Feminists can have amazing happy, full lives full of both traditional and modern womanhood. 
Feminism means gender should not be a source of persecution or a restriction of your choices. Feminism mean the type of person you should be is based on what you value, not what outside forces pressure you to value because of your gender or biological sex. Shout at the top of your lungs that you are a feminist and proud. Then go and be the exact person that you want to be.

Education: conventional and unconventional

Tumblr and university unexpectedly coincide in being valuable learning environments for me. Without tumblr I’m not sure that I would be as aware of the world. Not only have I recognised the many harmful ideologies that underlie and manifest in society, and subsequently those that I’ve internalised over the years, being on this website encourages me to be better. One such way it does this is by viewing better not as ‘politically correct’ but rather as respectful. 

Then there’s university. I think one of the major outcomes of any degree is critical thinking. If tumblr’s taught me to be more aware of the world and what goes on, then uni has helped me to be more thoughtful about any information thrown my way. Because critical thinking is important (a statement to which my first-year-uni self would emphatically raise her eyebrows). I can’t arrive at a solid conclusion unless I’ve seen all of the facts. This will sound really lame but on those days where I feel like I’ll have nothing to show from going to uni, I remember that I’m a smarter thinker than I used to be and that thought comforts me.
