Political tidbits

Finally decided to start a political blog, mostly as my own reference point, but for any other li(beral)ke minded persons.

Really tired of getting shit about all the sugar I eat from my male roommates. No, it is an uncontrollable craving that demands to be fed or to be fed your blood. Shut up and choose.

shadowhostage:

What is it wih men that makes them think they can dictate to me what to wear, how to dress, and how I look? Excuse me, this is MY life. Stop telling me how to live it!

  • Male author: I guess women are people
  • Fans: I CAN'T STOP CRYING, THIS IS WHAT A FEMINIST LOOKS LIKE!

"A new study shows that men are threatened by confident women taking pictures of themselves, and call these women stupid, socially inept, and ugly. In other news, the world is round, the sky is blue, and the patriarchy is still shitty."

Will men ever be able to give a shit about sexual assault against women without referring to us as their sisters and daughters?? Stay tuned to find out if men are capable of empathy that doesn’t prioritize themselves!

Yesterday, a teacher at my daughter’s preschool told me that she saw two boys and a girl spinning the knobs of a play oven. Boy #1 says: “I’m a pilot! I’m flying a plane.’ Boy #2 says: “Me too!” The girl is quiet, so the teacher says to her: “What about you, are you a pilot?” The 3 year old girl replies: “I can’t be a pilot. I’m a pilot’s wife.”

So what do you think has happened in this little girl’s short life to make her believe it’s more likely that she would be a pilot’s wife than a pilot?

literarysins:

In light of the 50 Shades of Grey trailer coming out today, quick reminder that that book is about an abusive and controlling relationship, not BDSM.

Fanfiction (published or not) is important for women of all ages to explore gender roles and sexuality in a way that is less stigmatized and more accessible. 

But do not do the BDSM community a disservice by calling the relationship described in the book a BDSM experience.
