I am outrageously pleased to share with you a PDF of evidence of major companies and organisations that accept and offer Mx as a gender-inclusive title. Creative Commons license, so you can print it or share the file to show that Mx is a “proper” title.
Wow, that’s a brave move for any woman, but especially so when you’ve been making a living in a world like Hollywood that champions idealized bodies over health and wellness.
I know people tend to get overly invested in the personal lives of celebrities, but maybe prominent public figures making these sorts of decisions will help people realize the “save boobies” approach to breast cancer awareness is super gross and dehumanizing, and puts the emphasis on an expendable piece of tissue rather than the person it’s attached to.

I went to the craft store today and they had teeny tiny straw hats on for 20 cents. I bought one for my hamster cus I’m cool like that. I took him out of his cage and attempted to get him to wear it long enough for me to take an adorable picture. He responded by peeing on my bed. I don’t think he liked it.
motivation behind misogyny:
- men maintaining power over women
results of misogyny:
- rape, abuse, murder, lower pay, less opportunities, general discrimination and loss of power, restrictive gender roles, and much, much more.
motivation behind misandry:
- men as a group sure do a lot of bad things as a result of their gendered power and male privilege, im not sure that i trust them or even like them.
results of misandry:
- hurt feelings
And before any men reblog this and are like, “Men get raped, abused, and murdered too!” Yes, you do, but not by people who are misandrists.
