#SoulPancakeSunday  
Did you know that less than 12% of sexually active young adults said they’ve been tested for STDs in the past year? People take care of their health by eating right, staying in shape, and going to the dentist... but why don't more people take care of their sexual health?

#YesMeansTEST

#TEDTalkTuesday  
In this classic talk that started a worldwide conversation about feminism, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie asks that we begin to dream about and plan for a different, fairer world of happier men and women who are truer to themselves.

We should all be feminists
