...Now Let's Move On (a feminist blog about what happens after you get boobs)

feministfiction:

I had the chance to speak with some young readers, writers and consumers of media about “The character they wish they had growing up.” They opened up about the sorts of figures their younger selves would’ve benefitted from encountering and the ways they would help them cope with everything from mental health and ethics to friendship, romance and sexuality.

Hope you enjoy! Feel free to reblog, reply, send asks with your responses to the prompt!

Nice! We know imakethingsup will love this too!

Fashion icon and entrepreneur Leandra Medine chooses not to wear makeup and suffers the consequences. Here’s her post on why she isn’t planning on changing her ways. 
"I’m not making a statement. I’m not trying to act like the most extreme, hyper-literal and violent version of a man repeller. If you read this site you know by now that Man Repelling is an attitude. It is a state of existence. It is not whether you do your hair or curl your lashes, or even what you wear. It is how approach doing those things. Why you do those things, and perhaps most importantly, it is a love letter to individuality, which is something that manifests itself in enumerably different ways."
Great read.

Three words: Sierra. Freaking. DeMulder.

“unafraid of her own anatomy,
systematically screwing
fucking
the system-
talks more than listens,
unconcerned with her reputation,
intentionally igniting
indicting
the report-card writers
and the ‘friend-zoned’ plighters.
unafraid,
justly screaming
redemption
from the rolls of her tummy
and the height of her thighs-
redemption
from shamed shoulders and
blamed smolders
‘women these days.’”

—   Jade Rivers, don’t you ever think i’m insulted by the words ‘women these days.’
