wouldnt it be nice if animal crossing was our reality
all we’d have to do is live in a cute town filled with animals and do things like digging and fishing and shaking trees all day
and we could go visit our friends towns and out and maybe chop all their trees down
finally unfollowed feminishblog
can’t deal with her shit anymore
oh my gawd
Oh man! It sucks that you had to deal with a situation like that, but it is great that it helped you sort of realize something important about the situation of women in our culture! I hope this sparks more learning about gender equality and oppression in general - if you ever have any questions, my askbox is always open! Thanks for this message. <3
I found out today that I’m like 36% European! Like, I don’t know what group or whatever for sure, but my mom thinks we are probablyGerman! She thinks that because her like great-great-great grandmother always made really good chocolate cake. (YOU KNOW, GERMANS ARE FAMOUS FOR THEIR GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE!!)
I think we might even be part of an ancient royal line. HOW COOL IS THAT???
I can even speak some phrases from my European language:
“Je suis tres jolie”
LOLLOLOLOL IT MEANS IM PRETTY
I’m just SO German.
I’m cis, but I’m a rape survivor. And let me make one thing abundantly clear.
You fuck with trans* women survivors, you are fucking with my sisters. And nobody fucks with my family on my watch.
If you are a cis woman that believes cis women are incapable of rape and abuse, and believes that trans* women don’t experience rape and abuse at our hands, take a fucking seat and look in a goddamn mirror (if you can even see your own reflection). Because that rape culture you’re always decrying?
You are part and parcel of it. You create it and you perpetuate it with every hateful and sociopathic attack on trans* women and dismissal of their pain. You can not purport to love and support women yet abuse trans* women. This is abuse, what’s going on. It is abuse of the deepest and most heinous magnitude. You are re-victimizing these women every time you do this.
And I do not have the words to express my contempt for you. I rebuke you with everything I have. You are soulless and you do not have a place in this world.

- Your ability to memorize mostly useless things
- Your ability to regurgitate information in the way others want you to
- Your ability to understand what adults want from you and give it to them
- Your tolerance for working on tasks you don’t find useful because others want you to do them or believe them to be helpful/socially acceptable
What grades do NOT determine:
- Your intelligence
- Your creativity
- Your emotional capabilities
- Your likeliness to succeed
- Whether you’re a good person
Things that don’t make you a bad person:
- Drinking alcohol responsibly
- Doing drugs recreationally
- Eating Meat
- Abstaining from drinking alcohol, doing drugs or eating meat
Things that make you a bad person:
- Condemning someone for their life choices
I like that this includes everything :) particularly eating meat!
Add “having sex, casual or otherwise” to that top list, too
Hey there! Okay, that is a totally valid question, and it’s something that confused me a lot when I first got into gender equality stuff.
There’s a difference between objectification and sexualization. A woman presenting herself in a sexual way is different than a woman being objectified. Objectification mainly occurs in the media, when photoshoots, etc. are usually coordinated by men and created with the intent of commodifying and presenting women in a way that is appealing to the male gaze.
Non-commercial photographs of women presenting themselves sexually (i.e. the kinds of pictures people post on Tumblr and the kinds of pictures I reblog) are a whole different ball game! For a girl to take a picture of herself and post it on the internet is a sex-positive, self-loving thing! There is an entirely different modus operandi behind an ad campaign featuring women in bikinis to sell Budweiser, and a girl taking a picture of herself in panties and thigh-highs because she thinks she looks pretty and sexy.
- $150,000 the amount George Zimmerman’s bond was set at when he was released last week after a contentious bond hearing
- $200,000 the amount George Zimmerman had in PayPal donations sitting around at the time of that hearing; it wasn’t mentioned at all source
» Trayvon’s lawyer wants his bond revoked: A few weeks back, when George Zimmerman was having lawyer trouble, he put up a Web site asking publicly for donations, complete with a PayPal link. People donated in the hundreds of dollars to Zimmerman’s legal fund. According to his lawyer, Mark O’Mara, Zimmerman didn’t inform him of the donations until this week, and they’re now under his authority. That said, Zimmerman will most assuredly need the funds — O’Mara’s normal rate is $400 per hour, and he’s already worked 100 hours on the case. Do the math on that one, guys. This morning, the judge in the case asked to learn more information on how this happened, while the lawyers for Trayvon’s family say that during the bond hearing, Zimmerman and his lawyer acted as though “that they did not have any money.” Lots of drama here.
murderers of black children get $200k in support.
as perfectly decent people starve.
when youre black, you cant claim it for another black body. we dont get rewards for killing each other. but everyone else does for killing us. anti-blackness is so profitable.
ANTI-BLACKNESS IS PROFITABLE.
THIS IS NOT THE ONLY TIME PEOPLE HAVE BEEN PAID TO HATE, HURT, AND EXCLUDE BLACK PEOPLE.
