On the subject of piercings, I’m gonna get one for my birthday but I dunno what to get. I want a couple of things at the moment, but I have to stay away from my ears because the atrocity in my left ear is still healing, so I don’t wanna get anything else there, nor on my right ear because then I won’t be able to sleep :C so I think it’s down to belly button, lip again, nose again, or nipple. Or maybe christina. Idk!
when you want to look cute but don’t want to be harassed by men #justgirlythings
I swear I’m not just making these in photoshop
Manslation (of the image): I can’t understand why non-men aren’t hanging on my every word when it comes to my opinion on their humanity. After all, as a man, I’m the MOST human, and this qualifies me to offer my opinion where it isn’t needed. Because I am positively swimming in male privilege, it’s fun for me to treat this topic as one for light banter and academic debate rather than the real-world issue it is.
So I gather you take the position of ‘sit down and shut up’ if you’re not a woman?
Certainly not, but a person is never obligated to listen to the opinions of a man with regard to their humanity and equality, nor are they obligated to engage in debate at the whim of a man. It’s also ridiculous for someone to ask an individual a question like this, because no one person can speak for why those people wouldn’t listen to him. Could be his opinions are complete garbage.
Not sure why “sit down and shut up” was met by a “certainly not,” like it’s some crazy straw feminist position.
Because, from my perspective, that’s like How to Be an Acceptable Human Being When Interacting with Marginalized People 101: whether you’re a man trying to learn about and confront sexism, a white person trying to learn about and confront racism, a currently able-bodied person trying to learn about and confront ableism, etc.
The most important thing privileged people can do is often indeed to sit down and shut up. And that tends to go double for white men in most situations, because society has consistently taught them that their opinions are always valid and wanted, when they are frequently (in situations where their experiences differ from those of the disprivileged) the exact opposite.
That’s completely valid. I was thinking that there are non-women, such as trans men or NB people, who may have lots of important contributions. And I think the opinions of cismen can have a place, but they’re never going to be more important or valid than the lived experience of non-cismen, and no one is obligated to listen to them. You’re right, of course, it’s usually most helpful when they LISTEN rather than talk over us, but hopefully that clarifies what I meant.
Female BAMFs Throughout History
babe bought me some pretty things.
*struggles to pick my jaw up from the floor*
Wait a minute…
I have been laughing at this for hours now…
So, true story. The woman in this photo is Kendra Kaplan. Her husband was in Iraq for twelve months but the military has this thing called leave. Some of us may recognize the concept from old episodes of Star Trek. In this photo she is five months pregnant after conceiving her second child during her husband’s leave. That envelope in her hand is the ultrasound results. She waited for him to come home to find out if it was a girl or a boy.
There’s been several articles about it.The photo resulted in this woman receiving so much hate mail, from both internet cut-ups and the actual media, that she even took a paternity test and provided proof of her husband’s leave schedule. Her real life friends have stopped talking to her over these rumors.
Oh, and by the way, that baby bump is a two year old by now. People are still shitting on this woman over a nasty internet meme two years later.
So in short, you’re mocking a faithful wife for something that isn’t any of our damn business anyway and has long since been disproven.
Good job Internet.
This scene was perfect
That time James Bond replied to homoerotic taunting not with some macho no homo bullshit, but by calmly implying he was bisexual anyway and somehow did not suddenly cease to be awesome but instead roughly doubled in awesome points.
white people be like ‘not everything is about race’
men be like ‘not everything is about sexism’
black women be like :/
