Every Time A Politician Tries To Defund Planned Parenthood, I Think Of This Brave Woman

Pink ribbons, religion, and politicians don’t cure cancer. Doctors do. This brave woman knows that better than most. Who will you support?

Warning: If you’re the slightly squeamish type, you might want to look away when she warns you to. But this is important and definitely worth watching.

This video was circulated back in February 2012 in response to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s decision to pull funding from Planned Parenthood. The message is, unfortunately, no less relevant today.

They Ate At 50 Schools In The Name Of Progress. Bless Their Souls.

I would ask you to imagine your school lunches, but I’m no monster. Kids in public schools deserve to have good, healthy food available to them, especially because kids consume so much of their daily diet at schools. Seems like a no-brainer, right? Not exactly.

If you think this is something that should happen in the U.S., take a moment to point this video towards your friends — maybe even your member of Congress.

Ever Considered What Guys Look For In Girls? Forget It. Think About What A 17-Year-Old Says Instead.

Expectations — of both men and women — suck. Savannah Brown is a teenager, and already she has it figured out. Listen to her powerful words and remember that, as she says, “standards don’t define you.”

Savannah said she wrote the poem after watching a video by Nash Grier, “What Guys Look for in Girls.” She explains that her poem isn’t a direct argument in response to that
