Yeah. There’s a reason women need 500+ shelters.
You know what’s truly sad about that dudebro’s meme? if he had only made it male specific, just left the comparison thing off of it. He could have actually started a conversation about male issues. He could have focused it as an awareness campaign and urged people to take action. He could have researched and added resources for men facing these struggles. But no, he spent his time with a “But men!” message and not actually contributing anything to the causes we’re supposed to believe he cares about.
That last comment.
Omg the BOOOLLLDDDDEEEED
maybe instead of making useless comparisons without factoring in context (ex. Women have more shelters because we experience rape and violence on a vastly worse level)
Guys could just post the info about men and why they need help in certain ways, and people could have worked to improve these things or at least raise awareness
BUT THIS WASN’T ABOUT ACTUALLY HELPING MEN
THIS IS WAS JUST ABOUT SHITTING ON WOMEN
i’m so pissed that i’m not a hot girl
i don’t care about what trends men hate. tell me what trends women love. how do i wear my eyeliner so a girl will want to kiss me. what color lipstick makes her think about moving to a cute house on the beach with me and getting 5 dogs. do ladies like peplum dresses and platform heels or not. come on.
I need a make out session so intense that I forget all my problems and possibly my name.
Gay rights are so much more than marriage equality.
…you can seriously be fired for being gay?
yes (and y’know lesbian, bi, queer, and in even more states, trans)
…and, for trans folk, evicted or denied housing, which disproportionately affects transfeminine folk than transmasculine folk. Yay, male privilege.
Transitioning can cost you a career, your home, your family (visitation rights are often denied to trans women to prevent the children being exposed to “perversity”), and your savings.
Trans women of colour have a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered. Let me say that again: trans women of colour have a 1 in 12 chance of being murdered.
And yet…all the while GLAAD and the HRC are celebrating the success of fight for marriage equality as the fulfillment of their mission.
I had the privilege to hear a staff lawyer (cisgender white gay male, shocking I know) for GLAAD and the HRC respond to criticism about the implied exclusion of trans folk in the “gay rights” movement. When asked specifically about ENDA, he responded with “Well, ENDA was set aside because gay people are more numerous and heteronormativity is easier to get. There arent enough trans people to matter with regard to ENDA.”
So, long story short - yes, you can be fired for being gay in some states, but you are FAR more likely to lose your life prematurely if you are trans.
…and I think that is bullshit, and its why I wont stop talking about it. Not until myself and all my sisters are all free and safe to live our lives.
- calling the legitimate anger of oppressed people “drama” or “hate”
- referring to allocation of human rights as simply “politics”
- referring to basic human empathy as “political correctness”
- the childlike refusal to admit mistakes and throwing a literal tantrum
- "it’s just my opinion"
Oh my GOD am I sick of human rights being considered “poltics.” Every time I talk about it and someone says “I’m not interested in politics” I want to scream.
if you find terms for queer identities confusing, arbitrary or unimportant then you’ve probably never had to experience how terrifying it is to not understand your own identity, or the relief of finding a term that helps describe you
I tell my girlfriend I am hornet. She thinks it’s typo, but she’ll find out soon enough.
one time when i was in 4th grade i had 14 girlfriends at one time and if you don’t think that is pimping please get out
ok but how many girlfriends do you have now?
Satire mocks existing power structures, not the people who suffer because of them. Satire requires critical thinking on the part of the writer *and* the audience.
Satire is not “lol demisexuals, lol trans women, lol nonbinary genders.”
Satire began as and will always be a tool of social justice.
大家你好!!! check out my new tattoo!! it means “harmony” in english!!! I can’t wait to start showing white people my tattoo and asking them if they can understand it!!! TFW YOLO! (That’s what they say right?)

7 billion people, 14 billion buttholes
a slight calculative error was madeanus georg
are you implying there’s a human named anus georg who posesses 7 billion buttholes
that is terrifying
Fuck everything about this.
Wearing one of these shirts is flat out advertising a person’s disgusting racism and should be reviled as such. The KKK is also raising a defense fund for Darren Wilson. Let that sink in for a moment.
The cops met the 125 protestors on bicycles and on foot, with no riot gear, tear gas or SWAT. As opposed to tonight, when they gassed the crowd and threatened to shoot a reporter.
ARE YOU FUCKING SERIOUS
would proudly wear this shirt :)
You could save yourself the cash and just sew a hood out of a white pillowcase. It would have the same effect.
