I keep getting this question a lot and this still exists in tutorial books, concept art etc. Please stop doing it.

edit: It’s not about realism, more about common sense over fashion. How can women admire and relate to “strong female roles” when sexiness is valued over everything.

Every time we share a parody tutorial like this, part of me worries that it will be mistake for real advice due to the general state of media that includes female armor.

"Previously, researchers had misidentified skeletons as male simply because they were buried with their swords and shields. By studying osteological signs of gender within the bones themselves, researchers discovered that approximately half of the remains were actually female warriors, given a proper burial with their weapons."

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

that’s so fucked up though that they just saw the swords and shields and were like “yes all male lets not look at the bones” what the fuck you are RESEARCHERS fucking do your RESEARCH look at EVERYTHING i’m just upset that this amazing fact was left out this is so fucking awesome

Then introduce a deadly disease to their family

and then teach their grandkids that you were their saviour

And then let your kids wear that family’s clothes as costumes while celebrating yourself.

wow The Onion is dropping a lot of truth for a work of satire

That’s what good satire is supposed to do. Not this “I’m going to lie, lol satire!!!” bullshit.

I’ve said this before and I’ll point it out again -

Menstruation is caused by change in hormonal levels to stop the creation of a uterine lining and encourage the body to flush the lining out. The body does this by lowering estrogen levels and raising testosterone.

Or, to put it more plainly “That time of the month” is when female hormones most closely resemble male hormones. So if (cis) women aren’t suited to office at “That time of the month” then (cis) men are NEVER suited to office.

If you are a dude and don’t dig the ladies around you at their time of the month, just think! That is you all of the time.

And, on a final note, post-menopausal (cis) women are the most hormonally stable of all human demographics. They have fewer hormonal fluctuations of anyone, meaning older women like Hilary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren would theoretically be among the least likely candidates to make an irrational decision due to hormonal fluctuations, and if we were basing our leadership decisions on hormone levels, then only women over fifty should ever be allowed to hold office.

Eat THAT, hormone-snipers!

what’s really amazing to me is that people are so afraid of body hair on women that even in a shaving commercial they won’t show a hairy leg. they demonstrate the razor by shaving a hairless leg. they show their product being completely useless instead of showing leg hair. it’s just crazy

Rape isn’t about uncontrollable sexual desire. You only have to listen in on a Call of Duty game to see that. When that kid crows, “I raped you!”, he’s not calling the other guy sexy; he’s saying he defeated him, dominated him, humiliated him. That’s what rape is about, and that should scare you.

gonna reblog this till I stop tumbling

"Sorry to say - she deserved it."

"She put herself in harm’s way"

"But if she was fingered, then that’s not rape."

"She ruined their lives."

"Well she didn’t exactly say ‘no’.."

"Yea, but did you see what she was wearing?"

MOMMA WILL GIVE ADVICE.

ALWAYS REMEMBER: MENSTRUATING DOES NOT MAKE YOU BAD. IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE SICK. IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE DIRTY.

First of all, do not go swimming in the ocean to look for Momma. 
Momma will be right here.

Momma suggests that at first sign of blood, take tylenol. If you are super in tune with your body, take it when you estimate it will start soon!

Momma knows EXACTLY what to do for cramps. Eating cranberries or drinking their juice is a wonderful way to get rid of cramps.

Another way to help with the pain is to rest on your bed like in the picture, butt in the air and head on the ground. 

Also, if you do not like pads OR tampons, there are more solutions!

There is the softcup!

And the mooncup!

They are very similar to one another. They are basically soft, silicone cups that go up into your lady cave that collect the blood.The softcup is a bit more expensive.

Also, Momma says that if you want to have sex and not have gushing everywhere, you can use a softcup!

The mooncup is a lot like the softcup, but it is reusable. Momma will remind you that you MUST disinfect it in boiling water. 

You can even use natural sea sponge like a tampon! 
Momma says it’s okay. 

There are also cotton reusable pads!

Momma is also thinking of you men that have periods, too!
There is a special kind of boxers that you can buy with a special pocket for sanitary products! It also comes with a bulge.

The most important thing to do, menstruating or not, is to love and respect yourself. Do not feel ashamed, and get through it as well as you can!

Momma loves you!

Thank you momma.

I imagine Momma having a really typical haggard old smoker’s voice

MOMMA’S ON MY OWN DASH WHAT THE HECKLE

WAIT HOLD THE PHONE THERE ARE OPTIONS OUTSIDE OF PADS AND TAMPONS???

can i just say i love how momma includes trans men?? and thank you momma for the advice <3
