Aretha Franklin was the first female inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame. She’s won 18 Grammies and performed at Obama’s inauguration.

@CandiesOrg says they don’t play the shame game, but we know better. @gesisson breaks it down. #noteenshame

Also, notice the use of actual sources. Fuck yeah!

Love this! Teen moms can be teachers. They can be brain surgeons. You can be whoever you want to be.

Let me just say that for the record, I hate bragging. With that in mind, I’m breaking my own rule for a moment.
I had a baby in the middle of my final semester of grad school at an Ivy League institution.
I finished. And passed.
I also managed to breastfeed.
I just took my last final, and I am officially DONE. Done! Done done done. Wow, I really like that word.
Many people doubted me at first - my professors, student services, and some of my classmates. I wasn’t oblivious to the gossip swirling around about how I was crazy to do this and would never make it.
Well, to everyone who doubted me, this is dedicated to you. Because I DID it.
My goal is always to inspire others. I had Hayley in high school and still attended and graduated from college on time with my class. I had Colin in the middle of my last semester, and here I am, done with graduate school. For now. I’ll go back in a few years, but this degree is good for the time being. ;)
To my young mamas out there - you are amazing. You CAN do anything you set your mind to. Let those who doubt you fuel you to persevere. You got this. :)
For now, I’m off to snuggle my babies, without the stress of papers, tests, or clinical rotations.

Way to go mama! I was a teen mom too and I just got accepted to Stanford School Medicine! Fuck Yeah Teen Moms!
Love this because it is so true “To my young mamas out there - you are amazing. You CAN do anything you set your mind to. Let those who doubt you fuel you to persevere. You got this. :)”

"The only person who has any business trying to prevent teen pregnancy is a teenager who is trying not to get (someone) pregnant. Stop throwing money at shaming teen moms and put it into real reproductive justice. 15 year wait for immigrants to get healthcare? Cutting teen moms off medicaid six weeks postpartum? Pushing (or withholding) long-term birth control? Blocking teenagers access to sex ed, contraception, school? Telling young women they’re gonna drop out or be alone? Get behind us or shut your mouth. - FYTM"

Age does not define how much of a kick ass mommy you can be

Teen moms are not a ‘natural source’ for you to get babies. It is reprehensible that a judge separated this young mama from her baby even when adults had stepped in to be guardian to mom and baby. 

Fuck the National Campaign. My family is not a burden.

FUCK YEAH TEEN MOMS!

Amazing convo happening at #feminismisforteenmomstoo

Breastfeeding is one of my sweetest memories of the baby years. Pumping in high school was hard, but the bond is incredible!

the other day i posted a link to an article called Why Male Pregnancy Matters, which discusses some of the implications and consequences of the Chicago Department of Public Health’s anti-teen pregnancy campaign depicting teenage boys with pregnant bellies. The purpose of the original campaign is to shock viewers with the supposedly impossible and absurd notion that anyone other than cis ladies can become pregnant, while asserting that boys bear equal responsibility for an unexpected pregnancy. Like many anti-teen pregnancy ads, these ones rely on shaming teenage parents; however, they also have the added douche-bonus of being extremely ciscentric and transphobic.
as a reaction to this regressive campaign (and others like it) the Media Literacy Project (MLP) developed the above counter ad. They accompanied the ad with an article that asks questions including: “In what ways does or doesn’t our counter ad transform the meanings of the pregnant boy ads? How does changing the text reposition an image? What role, if any, do you think counter ads play in reshaping the media landscape?”

Love this counter-ad! Also love the phrase added douche-bonus. Fuckyeahteenmoms and teendads! And fuckyeahtransparents!
