i'm bowling for abortions!

hi awkward feminists! yeas here. i wanted to tell you about something really exciting i’m doing in april that i think you’ll be interested in, and i need your help!

i’m bowling with team gsexxxy and the national abortion access bowl-a-thon to raise money for richmond reproductive freedom project, the only active abortion fund in the state of virginia that provides several services to virginians in need of abortions. learn more about them here.

my personal fundraising goal is currently $400, and every dollar counts. rrfp estimates that, each month, up to $2,000 is needed to assist their clients. by donating to this event, your gift will make an immediate difference in the lives of people in virginia.

if you can, please consider making a tax-deductible donation on my personal fundraising page here: http://bit.ly/marklebowl. if not, signal boost!

thank you! <3

my definition of Feminism™: theory and praxis that deals primarily with white, middle class women&#8217;s issues/concerns and ignores/silences intersectionality and race issues and (dis)ability issues and trans* issues and queer issues and so many other issues and it&#8217;s just so WHITE AND SHITTY. - yeas

"Males of all ages need settings where their resistance to sexism is affirmed and valued. Without males as allies in struggle feminist movement will not progress. As it is we have to do so much work to correct the assumption deeply embedded in the cultural psyche that feminism is anti-male. Feminism is anti-sexism. A male who has divested of male privilege, who has embraced feminist politics, is a worthy comrade in struggle, in no way a threat to feminism, whereas a female who remains wedded to sexist thinking and behavior infiltrating feminist movement is a dangerous threat."
— bell hooks (via yeas)
