I post what I find interesting. There's no theme or specifics here. Occasionally there will be a rant.
I do like meeting new people so send me a "hey" or anything my way if you want.
Look around and follow if you want. If you want to friend me, shoot me an ask
My ex was so happy to get out the hood after being robbed so many times and being held at gunpoint. He gets to the boonies and gets arrested for “looking like a criminal” (aka black) last night.
Actually arrested. Not just stopped. They tried to say he was drunk, he took a breathalyzer and got all 0s but they still held him for over 12 hours.
White people think we make this shit up.
If you don’t understand why people don’t like the big bang theory, once in an episode the cast was at a comic store browsing and a woman walked in, and one of the leads said “Is she lost?” and that was the joke.
I just got off a 9 hour shift and my girlfriend had to wake up in about an hour to start her day… I’ve got to get off midnights.
this is my favorite
Men who get off on the idea of women being tied up and therefore trapped and unable to get out of that sexual situation and are under the complete dominance of them are fucking creepy and scary and no amount of ~its just a kink!~ bullshit will convince me they don’t have the mindset of a sexual predator and have the potential to rape if they haven’t already
This pig thinks that women deserve to be beaten and receive head injuries as well as burns if they identify as feminists. Ironically, this piece of human garbage considers himself a Christian.
i hope that people will realize that the kink term “aftercare” is a weasel word for “trauma bonding,” meaning to calm down the sub enough so they can take even MORE abuse and dissociation.
Imagine a wall full of circular holes, that circles can keep walking in and out of with no difficulty.
Now imagine that the triangles manage to get the resources together, after years of not being able to fit through the circle’s holes, to drill a single triangle space into the wall.
Now imagine that the circle — who previously supported the triangle’s efforts because they are well-rounded (har) and value equality — comes along and sees the construction project. But instead of being happy, they get angry.
“Well, I won’t be able to fit through your hole!!!!” the circle cries.
“I helped you get the drill!!!!” the circle shrieks.
“Make it fit me too!!!!” the circle demands.
The triangles, barely holding it together enough to get a triangle hole together, stare at the circle in confusion.
“You have all the holes you need,” the triangles explain. “This is for us. You don’t need to fit through our hole, too.”
“YOU’RE BEING UNEQUAL AND HURTING MY FEELINGS!” the circle wails. “I DON’T SUPPORT YOUR HOLE IF IT DOESN’T FIT ME TOO. GIVE ME MY DRILL BACK.”
“It’s not your drill, it’s our drill. You helped us get it, because you said you cared.”
“I ONLY CARED WHEN I THOUGHT YOU’D MAKE A HOLE EVERYONE COULD FIT THROUGH. YOU’RE PERPETUATING INEQUALITY!!!”
“Why is it up to us, the small group that has never been able to fit through the wall at all, to make a hole everyone can use? Why isn’t it up to you, the people who have been able to cross back and forth at will for years? We just want to see the other side; why are you yelling at us?”
“I DIDN’T ASK TO BE BORN A CIRCLE, OMG. I’VE HAD TO WORK HARD ALL MY LIFE TOO. YOU’RE JUST BEING BIGOTED AGAINST ME BECAUSE OF SOMETHING I CAN’T CONTROL, JUST LIKE EVERYONE IS AGAINST YOU.”
“You are interfering with our project and asking us to comfort you while we’re trying to make progress. Please leave.”
“I’m going to tell everyone about this,” the circle warns. “Nobody will support you now.”
“Apparently nobody ever did,” the triangles sigh, getting back to work.
Systematic inequality / institutionalized racism explained in a picture.
Damn. This is…wonderful
Most girls are relentlessly told that we will be treated how we demand to be treated. If we want respect, we must respect ourselves.
This does three things. Firstly, it gets men off the hook for being held accountable for how they treat women. And secondly, it makes women feel that the mistreatment and sometimes outright violence they face due to their gender is primarily their fault. And thirdly, it positions women to be unable to speak out against sexism because we are made to believe any sexism we experience would not have happened if we had done something differently.
I cannot demand a man to respect me. No more than I can demand that anybody do anything. I can ask men to be nice to me. But chances are if I even have to ask he does not care to be nice. I can express displeasure when I’m not being respected. But that doesn’t solve the issue that I was disrespected in the first place.
I can choose to not deal with a man once he proves to be disrespectful and/or sexist. But even that does not solve the initial problem of the fact that I had to experience being disrespected in the first place.
As a young girl, I wish that instead of being told that I needed to demand respect from men that I had been told that when I am not respected by men that it’s his fault and not mine. But that would require that we quit having numerous arbitrary standards for what it means to be a “respectable” woman. It would mean that I am not judged as deserving violence based on how I speak, what I wear, what I do, and who I am.
Meet Blake Ansari.
He is six years old. And he saw a need. So he started a book drive for homeless children. He collected and distributed 600 books. His next plan? To build a library. Here’s what his mother reports he said:
When you listen to the community, learn from the community, and help the community, you connect to your best self.
meet my son.
I’m so sick of seeing those “you’re not a bad person because you’re part of a privileged group” coddling posts, because no, you may not be a bad person just for being part of a privileged group but you ARE kind of a shitty person if you feel the need to prioritize you and your precious feelings over taking responsibility and doing your part in tearing down the system that lets you be privileged.
"I love women," is not a get out of jail free card. Thicke pulled the same bullshit when he was accused of degrading women in "Blurred Lines": "When we made the song, we had nothing but the most respect for women," he said. How nice of you to say so, Mr. Thicke. Alas, your work shows the opposite to be true. I am fairly certain many of the men who buy sex and consume porn also think they do it because they really, really, love women. NOPE. You love women like I love wine — as something I consume selfishly for my personal benefit and as a product.

(via casocracy)Thicke’s piece-of-shit self said “what a pleasure it is to degrade women” in one article. A shining example as to why a great many males are poster-children for retroactive abortions. (via the-uncensored-she)
