26 Million People Change Profile Pictures With Facebook’s Rainbow Pride Filter

“As anyone with a Facebook account can attest to, this weekend saw rainbows sweep across the social media site.

I need feminism because the man who molested me was drunk and therefore I have been told that he shouldn't be blamed or held accountable, and that it wasn't his fault and he didn't mean to. And the sad thing is that if I had been the one who was drunk people still wouldn't believe that he should have been held accountable.

Thanks for sharing this with us! Your story truly does mean a lot and I hope you have a good support system to help. <3

I can’t wait for the day, when I don’t have to keep my sheild up. When I’m not always ready for a fight. When I don’t have to defend and explain my sexuality to anyone. When I can tell you I’m gay and don’t have to face the follow up questions about how I can know without having had sex with a man. When I don’t have to hear you make jokes about how I have to sleep with you to know I’m sure. When I don’t have to be scared.
