This Tomboy Loves Makeup

I am a lover of all things makeup. I love to laugh. I enjoy thinking for myself. Being a black woman makes me happy. Cupcakes rule my world. Harry Potter is my escape.

"The hyper-sexualization of little girls and their bodies, as a mother, really bothers me. It plays into the sexualization of their bodies into their teenager years and adult life. It makes them grow up faster than they need to. Let them be little girls, have fun, be able to play in the playground and not worry about going on the monkey bars because someone’s going to see their underwear. Something like this constricts their movements, which affects the way they play."

Jenny Reid, a volunteer firefighter with Langford Fire Rescue, says the costume is not only offensive to women in her field, it’s also damaging to the self-esteem of little girls.

"That costume is awful and it sends the wrong message," she says. "It reinforces that there are still jobs that are off-limits to women. It’s not a representation of the real job. Little girls can do whatever they want. They shouldn’t be restricted. Those types of costumes put so many limitations on them. They don’t build the self-esteem and confidence you need to be a firefighter or police officer." " [x]

I work at a halloween store and have been pointing this out to coworkers, as well as getting into discussions with moms and dads about this all year (really, for the past four years, but it has actually gotten worse).

We did a count and we only had two little girls costumes that weren’t a dress/skirt.  Costumes like pikachu, cat, cop, firefighter, powerranger ALL are turned into little dresses that barely look anything like they are supposed to.

It is sad and scary. Make your own costume.

its funny how so many black men openly hated macklemore and no one once said “why are black men so bitter and jealous of macklemore?” but let black women discuss how racist, untalented, and ignorant iggy azalea is and suddenly we’re all bitter black bitches jealous of the poor innocent white girl lmao

I support people who have abortions.

A big thanks to provoice for suggesting I do this! It’s simple, but I like it! ♥
Like this graphic? You can get it (and others) in sticker and button form in our ProCh0ice store! All of the proceeds will be going towards this abortion fund! Cheers! (Please do not steal and please do not delete caption, thanks!) - Paige

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.
