I’ve just had a baby, I’ve just been appointed [to replace Hillary Clinton in the Senate], I have a lot to learn, so much on my plate, and this man basically says to me, ‘You’re too fat to be elected statewide.’ At that moment, if I could have just disappeared, I would have. If I could have just melted in tears, I would have. But I had to just sit there and talk to him … I didn’t hear a word he said, but I wasn’t in a place where I could tell him to go fuck himself.

White men need to be stopped for real


No. Just stop ignorant men. Everyone gets so fucking butt hurt about racism but they always blame white people, it’s STILL racism. For example. If murderer is murdered, is it still murder? Yes, and the same basic principle applies to “reverse” racism.

I’m sorry you ever had to experience this but that doesn’t make it ok to be racist back

This is literally SPECIFICALLY ABOUT his whiteness. Because white people have this tendency to view themselves, and whiteness, as baseline, as default. All other races are “othered”, exotic, fetishized. It’s gross.

And seriously please don’t even start with ‘reverse racism’. It doesn’t exist. When white people do something racist, it’s destroying people at an individual level as well as a cultural one, it’s hurting people. When POC do something you perceive as “”“racist”“”, it’s attacking a system. Whiteness is the face of that oppressive system, and calling out the behavior learned by white people and taught by that oppressive and insidious system is part of that.

Everyone gets so fucking butt hurt about racism…”

IKR! It’s almost like racism kills people or something…

It’s this idea of “Hey, dudes are dudes.”

Here’s a sure-fire way to know that you hate women: when an incident of intimate partner violence in which a man knocks a woman unconscious gains national attention and every question or comment you think to make has to do with her behavior, you really hate women. Like, despise.

There is no other explanation. There is no “I need all the facts.” There is no excuse. You hate women. Own it.

Now, you probably don’t believe you hate women. You probably honestly think you’re being an objective observer whose only interest is the truth. You are delusional.

We have this problem in our discourse around the most important challenges we face where we feel we have to be “fair to both sides.” But sometimes, one of those sides is subjugation and oppression. If you’re OK with legitimizing that side in the interest of “fairness,” you’re essentially saying you’re OK with oppression as a part of the human condition. That’s some hateful shit.

19 #WhyIStayed tweets everyone needs to see

While many cheered the NFL’s move to (finally) punish Rice’s vicious behavior, too many media outlets immediately fell into a tired pattern of victim blaming. 

Writer Beverly Gooden had heard enough. “I was watching the responses to the TMZ on my timeline, and I noticed a trend. People were asking ‘why did she marry him?’ and ‘why didn’t she leave him,’” Gooden told Mic. “When I saw those tweets, my first reaction was shame. The same shame that I felt back when I was in a violent marriage. It’s a sort of guilt that would make me crawl into a shell and remain silent. But today, for a reason I can’t explain, I’d had enough. I knew I had an answer to everyone’s question of why victims of violence stay. I can’t speak for Janay Rice, I can only speak for me.”

Gooden decided to change the conversation. Follow micdotcom

I’m a guy but all these things are true, especially the last one… the problems I’ve had with the philistines of this world are all due to witnesses who didn’t step forward, didn’t look and didn’t even think to help at all. This all happened as they were walking past. Although, yelling “FIRE” is a good thing to know, just incase you are in that situation.

This makes me cry. We shouldn’t have to live in a society where all these things are so fucking true, yet here we are…….

Yes please, explain to me again how this has nothing to do with sexism.



Garbage. These dudes are absolute human garbage.

In the United States, access to tampons and pads for low-income women is a real problem, too: food stamps don’t cover feminine hygiene products, so some women resort to selling their food stamps in order to pay for “luxuries” like tampons. Women in prison often don’t have access to sanitary products at all, and the high cost of a product that half the population needs multiple times a day, every month for approximately 30 years, is simply, well, bullshit.

- The case for free tampons (via stuffmomnevertoldyou)

You know, I don’t think I’ve ever heard anybody suggest that toilet paper or paper towels in public bathrooms shouldn’t be free.  We’d consider it outrageous if that very basic necessity were to be missing, or provided only for purchase.

And yet.

But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it. If we’re not wearing anti-rape nail polish, we’re asking for it. If we don’t take self-defence classes, we’re asking for it. If we get drunk, we’re asking for it. If our skirts are too short, we’re asking for it. If we pass out at a party, we’re asking for it. If we are not hyper-vigilant every single fucking second of every single fucking day, we are asking for it. Even when we are hyper-vigilant, we’re still asking for it. The fact that we exist is asking for it.

This is what rape culture looks like.

This is what misogyny looks like.

Isn’t amazing how people don’t give a shit about misogyny until they can accuse Muslims of it in order to justify their Islamaphobia?

If you think women are crazy you’ve never had a dude go from hitting on you to literally threatening to kill you in the time it takes you to say “no thanks.”

These are forms of male aggression that only women see. But even when men are afforded a front seat to harassment, they don’t always have the correct vantage point for recognizing the subtlety of its operation. Four years before the murders, I was sitting in a bar in Washington, D.C. with a male friend. Another young woman was alone at the bar when an older man scooted next to her. He was aggressive, wasted, and sitting too close, but she smiled curtly at his ramblings and laughed softly at his jokes as she patiently downed her drink. ‘Why is she humoring him?’ my friend asked me. ‘You would never do that.’ I was too embarrassed to say: ‘Because he looks scary’ and ‘I do it all the time.’

Women who have experienced this can recognize that placating these men is a rational choice, a form of self-defense to protect against setting off an aggressor. But to male bystanders, it often looks like a warm welcome, and that helps to shift blame in the public eye from the harasser and onto his target, who’s failed to respond with the type of masculine bravado that men more easily recognize.

BOOOM.  Read this if you are a dude, please.

Its hard for men to understand why women dont get loud & angry because they havent spent their entire lives being reprimanded whenever they take up too much space. (via pluralfloral)
