equal rights marriage

My country is celebrating 100 years of independence this year and we are also achieving marriage equality on the 1st of March. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our achievements as a nation than celebrating equality and human rights. Congratulations, Finland, may there be many more victories such as this and may your freedom last a thousand years!

(yes, the Finnish flag appears backwards because she’s waving it around)

There is no equivalent of the “ultimate bachelor”, the “bachelor life” or a “bachelor pad” for women.

Older, unmarried men are often seen as successful for escaping some kind of trap that marriage represents where women are seen as suffering for having not been chosen to be a wife.

Unmarried men are free to go out, socialize, travel, to “live the dream”.

Unmarried women are seen as waiting. They’re seen as being slave to their ticking biological clock. They become a “cat lady” to fill the void of their loveless life with a hundred cats.

There’s no telling what people want with their lives or what makes someone happy, lonely, etc. These stereotypes are damaging to people.

if you care about roe v wade, planned parenthood, lgbtq+ people, disabled people, veterans, marriage equality, gun control, poc, the lives of immigrants, ending Islamophobia, poor people, welfare programs, women’s rights, etc. then please vote for Hillary! I don’t care if you don’t like her because she’s a liar or she’s crooked or she’s not nice or whatever the fuck your excuse is for voting for a literal fascist dictator! vote for Hillary! she’s the only thing standing in the way of a literal xenophobic bigoted orange skittle becoming our president! your vote counts! please vote for Hillary! #imwithher
