Miley Cyrus won Video of the Year at the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, but she didn’t accept the Moonman trophy herself.
Nat’s gone and done the research, it must’ve taken ages, and it is really interesting and helpful: When was the Mx gender-inclusive title created?

it is important for feminist-minded men to actively analyze their own presence, words, and actions to ensure that they are not making the women around them feel uncomfortable or unsafe
SCOTS nurse Joyce Drummond reveals how thousands of genuinely ill people were set up for a fall before they had even been assessed by benefits firm Atos.
Joyce Drummond’s medical training meant she knew claimants were unfit to work.
But she was told to mark people as fit if they could write or show up for an interview properly dressed. Eventually, Joyce was carpeted by bosses for being “too nice” to claimants.
After five months, she was signed off with stress caused by “having to trick sick people out of their benefit”. She quit in July 2009 and hasn’t worked since.
Joyce said candidates were marked down if they:
*looked well-presented, with neat hair and make-up.
*turned up with a toddler.
*could sign the application form.
Public fury is growing against Atos, who have assessed thousands of people with terminal illnesses as fit for work.
And thousands with genuine chronic conditions have been dragged over the coals repeatedly by their inquisitors.
Mum-of-one Joyce, from Mosspark, Glasgow, said Atos decision makers paid no attention to her professional clinical opinion and were only interested in cutting down the number of claimants.
She reveals all the questions she was told to ask were loaded.
Joyce said: “I stopped working for Atos three-and-a-half years ago but I still feel sick every time I think of those people deemed fit for work, when they quite clearly were incapable of doing so.
“I apologise from the bottom of my heart to all those people I had to assess during my five months in the job but the decisions were out of my hands.
^^ i got deducted points for having the remnants of 2 week old chipped nail varnish on. because you know, with a massively painful (and at the time not properly treated) condition, painting your nails once a fortnight means there’s nothing wrong with you. none of this shit surprises me in the least and good on her for speaking out. this kind of game-fixing has been going on as long as i’ve needed help and it tends to affect people with ‘invisible’ illnesses (both physical and mental) the most because they think/know the public will generally let them get away with it.
"but you don’t look ill!"
fuck off. fuck right off.

stop the phrase “tattle-tale”. stop indirectly telling kids that if they speak up about someone that’s bothering them, they’re doing something bad. stop contributing to the culture of abuse.
one time when i was like 10 years old or something, there was this kid who would constantly harass me.
and every single time he would do anything the teacher would tell me to “stop being such a tattle tale” and brush me off.
she even brushed me off the time the kid lifted my skirt up and groped my ass bc i was just “overreacting” so any time anyone did shit like that to me i’d just brush it off bc i was such a good teachers pet i didnt want to bother any one so yeah
teaching kids that being a tattle tale is bad and can lead up to them ignoring abusive assholes until they’re in their 20s
