I love this a LOT.

From tumblinfeminist:




The correct term is “Ms.” And I already have a name, thank you.


We’ve all seen the shirts that say, “Future Mrs. Timberlake,” “Future Mrs. Pitt,” “Future Mrs. Pattinson,” etc. Young boys aren’t taught that their entire identities and happiness center around a relationship with a woman. Why do we teach young women that their identities and worth are so tentative and conditional, and dependent upon the validation of a man? Why must the markers of a woman’s identity change so drastically in response to her relationship status? Why is a woman defined by her relationships, and how society views those relationships?
