I'm a writer, knitter, homeschooling momma, animal lover, and much more. I joined tumblr to learn more about writing and ended up finding a community that shares many of my own interests.

I started questioning gender-based assumptions a long time ago. When I was 8, I was confused at being called ‘bossy’ because I wanted to direct the plays that we would put on for our parents. But the boys were not. When at 14, I started to be sexualized by certain elements of the media. When at 15, my girlfriends started dropping out of their beloved sports teams because they didn’t want to appear muscly. When at 18, my male friends were unable to express their feelings. I decided I was a feminist, and this seemed uncomplicated to me. By Emma Watson to the United Nations

Disturbing video reveals what it’s really like to be a woman on the Internet

Late last week, BuzzFeed posted a video titled “What It’s Like To Be A Woman Online,” which features interviews with nine different women — filmmakers, writers, comedians — who maintain an active Internet and social-media presence. In the video, the women discuss the challenges they face online every day, such as sexual harassment and dismissal of their opinion based on their gender.

This is not just a woman’s problem 

anecdotally we can confirm all of this stuff. ALL OF IT.
