FAIRFAX COUNTY FRIENDS! Are you aware of the congressional race happening in our area? You may have missed the news because there wasn’t a primary but Frank Wolf has retired after being our congressman for three freakin’ decades so this race is massively important. I know you’re all hip and jaded about the state of politics in this country and that’s all fine and fair but what’s even more radical is educating yourself about the candidates and the impact of the outcome of this election. You all know that I’m an unabashedly liberal person and the candidate I feel would best represent the needs of the 10th district is John Foust, running on the democratic ticket opposite Barbara Comstock, who is terrifyingly conservative and religiously-motivated and tea party-backed and I think that’s a huge problem.

Please do not hesitate to message me if you would like more information or if you would like to know how to volunteer to help the campaign. The race is a toss-up right now and the only way to prove that we care about the environment, transportation, women’s rights, and education over tax cuts for the rich and banning birth control (wtf Barbara you asshole) is to get involved and talk about this stuff.

I love you all. Please stop being anarcho-too-cool-for-skool for one second to just hop on John Foust’s website http://www.foustforvirginia.com/ and read up on what he stands for and consider talking to your friends and family about the importance of this election. CONSIDER IT. Please? Thank you :)

my feminist goal is not to convince men that girls are of value, my feminist goal is to achieve a future where the judgement of our value isn’t in the hands of men. 

and this goes for, especially goes for, trans girls, girls of colour, disabled girls and LGBTQA+ girls. 

girls, all girls, and if you believe otherwise don’t reblog this.
