sounds like you have tom jones disease
is it rare?
it’s not unusual
The main problem I have with Men’s Rights Activists is that their name really doesn’t do them justice. They’re Straight Cis White Men’s Rights Activists. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for the inclusion of trans* men in their spaces.
I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign to end the social stigma around black fatherhood. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign for better pay and equal career mobility for men of colour. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists actively campaign for more gay men’s rights. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists advise others in their group on how using f*ggot to emasculate men who aren’t part of their cause is alienating and marginalising other MEN.
I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support victims of male rape unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of rape. I have NEVER seen Men’s Rights Activists campaign, raise awareness of, or support male victims of domestic abuse unless it’s in order to derail a discussion around female victims of domestic abuse. Men’s Rights Activists are hypocrites and frauds.
They’re bitter privileged white men who don’t want to campaign for the rights of men — they want to campaign to keep their privilege unchecked and their ability to discriminate against others. If you want to be a real Men’s Rights Activist — be a fucking (intersectional) Feminist. Peace out.
Signs that you may be a douchebag:
1. Using the phrase “I’ve seen the wheel turn” in a serious context
2. Spending hours on essays to harass women who have no interest in you
3. Being in your late forties and having nothing better to do than to try and shit on a 25 year old woman for having a dating profile that doesn’t meet your standards
"WAHHHH! It sucks getting old! You 20 somethings with your podcasts and your thinking that you can have established dating preferences!"
Caitlin Stasey being the hero we all deserve.
I was listening to a morning radio show (forgot what it’s called) hosted by Carson Daly and he always has Perez Hilton call in and talk about the latest gossip. Carson asked him what that was all about, why would he repost the photos and links. Perez said as a “journalist” you always want to be the first to report things and he didn’t want his followers to call him out for not doing his job. He said he deleted them because he felt bad and that it will be best for HIM that he doesn’t report on it anymore. *eyeroll*
He also said he didn’t understand why a member of 5 SOS didn’t get as much attention for his nude selfie and everyone is making a big deal out of these photos…. Carson replied, maybe because he shared that photo and Jennifer’s photos were stolen.
(Plus…. Who the fuck is 5 SOS?)
Perez is a fuckin idiot. This guy runs a celebrity gossip and rumor blog, but can’t handle the pressure when the gossip is about him.
Perez Hilton took them down because he was going to get his ass prosecuted or sued. He doesn’t give a shit about anything else but himself.
okcupid questions are my life’s legacy
My favorite OkCupid question/answer so far is “Q: Do you believe in dinosaurs?” The person answered yes and their explanation was, “I believe that dinosaurs can do whatever they put their mind to, if they’re willing to work for it. PS, the hell kind of question is this?”
There’s a link to a website called naturalcuresnotmedicine.com on my facebook feed
I will cure you of your stupidity with a natural remedy. It’s called 30 tons of rock dropped on your head.
The trend of labeling women “crazy” is part of the culture that socializes women to go along to get along. When women are told over and over again that they’re not allowed to feel the way they feel and that they’re being “unreasonable” or “oversensitive”, they’re conditioned to not trust their own emotions. Their behavior – being assertive, even demanding or standing up for how they feel – becomes an “inconvenience” to men and they’re taught not to give offense and to consider the feelings of others before their own.
Anonymous said: I read people type that LBJ was a super racist who only signed the civil rights act for political reasons, and that even George Wallace would have signed it if he were president. Is this true?
No, it’s not true. LBJ was definitely a consummate politician, but he believed in civil rights dating back to his time as a teacher at a small school for Mexican-American children in Cotulla, Texas. He believed that the time had to be right in order to line up the number of votes needed to pass civil rights legislation, but he also recognized that the time was long overdue and he could not continue to ask for patience or sacrifice. LBJ also pushed hard for the Voting Rights Act and that was for political reasons, but not the cynical political reasons that people suggest. LBJ understood that true power and influence for minorities would come when they had the ability to vote out those political leaders who were holding them back. That was when things changed. The “political reason” was giving political power to the segment of population that had been long discriminated against and denied their civil rights. LBJ was already the most powerful person in the world, and fighting for effective civil rights legislation wasn’t going to help him at the polls in his home state of Texas. Lyndon Johnson had a lot of faults, but there wasn’t anything selfish for LBJ in signing the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, and any other general civil rights legislation or specific bills prohibiting discrimination that the President put his name to during his Administration.
And George Wallace? Come on! George Wallace?! As Governor of Alabama, George Wallace literally stood in the doorway of the University of Alabama and tried to prevent black students from integrating the school. He’s also the guy who called for “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever” in his gubernatorial inaugural address. I don’t care if or when or how his viewpoint on race and segregation changed — George Wallace can’t even be hypothetically inserted into this discussion. Wallace might have signed the Civil Rights Act or the Voting Rights Act in the 1980s if he had been President, but he wouldn’t have signed either piece of legislation in the 1960s, and as Governor of a Southern state during that time, he actively fought against it to the point that enforcing the new laws required federal oversight and intervention.
What women have endured is not only the history of men, but also their own specific oppression. Extraordinarily violent. Hence this simple suggestion: you can all go and get fucked, with your condescension towards us, your ridiculous shows of group strength, of limited protection and your manipulative whining about how hard it is to be a guy around emancipated women. What is really hard is to actually be a woman and to have to listen to your shit.
Bringing this one back today.
i’ve been drinking, i’ve been drinking
Post with 8 notes
I could write a big post here about how you’re a terrible fucking person if you defend the leak of those photos in any way, or how it always amazes me that a man can sit and see multiple women talk about the same experiences and feelings stemming from those experiences and yet still try to put his big stupid asshole man fingerprints all over the conversation. Or I could write how women will now no longer feel safe around that man since he has dehumanized them to the point of “If you are attractive then whatever happens to you is your fault.” Or I could talk about how legal definitions are not equal to moral definitions and how, even if you’re doing something legal, that doesn’t make it moral.
But instead, I’m lightheaded, angry to the point of tears about so many things, my knuckles are swollen, and I feel helpless. I’m going to go drive around and buy something that I can reasonably force down to eat.
lol look how quickly tables turned after consequences were involved
Fuck Perez Hilton.
