A list of widely loved activities, people, and delicious spreads to help us relate to the women of our generation.
GIVE ME ALL THE GUACAMOLE HUMMUS AND WINE YOU HAVE!
“In 1921, early suffragettes often donned a bathing suit and ate pizza in large groups to annoy men…it was a custom at the time”
PIZZA AND BATHING SUITS
who wants to have a pizza/bathing suit party?
This is a protest activity I could get behind.
This summer be sure to avoid frozen high fructose, artificial bullshit and fight swamp ass. Because there are two kinds of people in this world: people who get swamp ass and goddamn liars. Don’t sweat it though because Thug Kitchen has your back with real fruit popsicles. These are easy as fuck to make and it’s not like you’re too busy to freeze blended fruit.
MANGO PINEAPPLE POPSICLES
2 ripe mangos, skinned and cut into chunks, about 2 cups
1 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1 cup yogurt (I used a coconut yogurt but you can use your favorite shit)
2 ½ tablespoons lime juice
1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger
Throw all of that together in a blender and blend until it is smooth. Pour the mixture into your molds and let it freeze for at least 8 hours. No molds? Don’t fucking give up now. Just do it like we all did growing up: small paper cups and popsicle sticks. Shit, you could even fill up your ice cube tray and use toothpicks for bite-sized deliciousness. Just make sure your sticks don’t go all the way to the bottom of the mold or cups because then you have a fucking ice kabob thing that ends in heartbreak.
Makes about 2 cups of filling. The number of pops you get depends what the fuck you pour it into
PEACH BLUEBERRY POPSICLES
1 cup frozen peaches
½ cup real fruit juice (I used a peach apple juice blend here and it was legit. Check your label. Anything that only has 2% fruit juice is just a bottled lie)
¼ cup yogurt (I kept using coconut yogurt because I still had a bunch left but again use your favorite shit)
1 teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Blend all that together and then pour the mixture into a large glass. You should have about a cup. Don’t wash the blender. We have more shit to do.
1 cup frozen blueberries
½ cup yogurt (you know the drill by now)
¼ cup of the same fruit juice you already used
1 teaspoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Blend all of that shit together until it is smooth. Layer it into your molds or cups with the peach filling if you want the popsicle to look awesome. Pour them in at the same time if you love chaos. Freeze for at least 8 hours before trying to get down.
Makes about 2 cups of filling

reminder that men have filibustered in senate by reading out the fucking phone book and weren’t called out for being ‘off topic’ but the minute a woman tries to defend reproductive rights and (apparently) deviates from the subject matter, she is silenced
Senator Wendy Davis is a fucking badass.
There’s this bill that they are trying to pass in Texas that would make it illegal to get any abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, and would make it very difficult for abortion centers to continue doing what they do. Governor Rick Perry has already said that if the bill makes it to his desk, he will sign it. And Wendy Davis said fuck no that is not happening.
So she’s filibustering it. That means she asked to talk on the subject at 11:18 this morning, and if she can continue talking about abortion until 11:59 tonight, the bill won’t reach Governor Perry, and they would have to start all over with the bill next time they meet- 2 years from now.
But Wendy has to keep talking. She can’t pause for even a minute, not for food or a sip of water or to go to the bathroom or sit down. She can’t even lean up against anything, or she’s out. So she’s wearing motherfucking PINK NIKE TENNIS SHOES in the middle of the state senate.
She also has to continue talking about the topic. She sent out tweets an other messages last night asking for anyone and everyone’s abortion story, and received a shit load of answers. Her staff is still collecting them, and she’s reading them aloud to the senate. Not only is she making this bill impossible to pass, she may just change some minds while she’s at it.
This is history, guys. Wendy Davis is a motherfucking badass, and we are watching it happen.
She’s putting on for my state and city! Yehyuh!
Someone to admire.
Take them down, Wendy. For all of us who are sick of women’s rights being determined by a bunch of men.
friendly reminder that giving smokers shit is the same as fat shaming (◡‿◡✿)
friendly reminder that second-hand smoking damages the people around you by making them inhale carbon monoxide and carcinogenic chemical compounds linked to diseases such as lung cancer and childhood leukaemia and can cause pregnant women to lose their baby whereas second-hand eating isn’t even a thing (◡‿◡✿)
There once was a 3-year-old who “smoker shamed” her mom into quitting smoking. Her mom is awesome so she listened to her 3-year-old and quit cold-turkey. Twenty-eight years later, she still thanks her daughter for what she for both of them that day.
SHAME ALL THE SMOKERS!!!
literally fucking me at the club
When I was living in San Diego and working for a dance studio we would go to these dance comps where it was literally this for 2 straight days. 6 year olds dancing inappropriately and winning awards.
I wish I could dance like that kid
Just because you can dance like this, doesn’t mean that you should. I grew up a dance competition kid and the most risque dance I can remember was a 10 year old doing “Steam Heat” (which I think is also on the cusp of inappropriate). And as far as I know my studio would still NEVER have a 7 year old dance like this. We didn’t dance like this at 18!
Also, these dance teachers and moms should be aware that places like pageants and dance competitions, which are generally open to the public with no ticket charge, are great places for pedophiles to hang out undetected amongst errant fathers and other family members. Want your little girl up on stage gyrating in barely any clothing now?
