So tonight is fucking ruined, and here is why:
- I find out that my friends have once again contributed to the emotional degradation of one of our friends, and that pisses me the fuck off. I gave them a talking to.
- I find out one of my “friends” is a homophobe. On top of being a capitalist, and a misogynist. I finished my meal, got up, and fucking left.
I want to punch someone (preferably the homophobe). I’m fucking sick and tired of my so-called friends being passive sexists, and finding out this one guy is a homophobe is like the final fucking straw. I’m going to tell them to smarten the fuck up or I’m not going to associate with them anymore.
Fuck homophobes. Fuck sexists. Fuck misogynists. Fuck capitalist ass holes. Fuck people who devalue the emotional well being of their friends. I’m fucking done.
Enough of this bullshit.
I saw your post about the “sex scandal”.
Just joined tumblr I read your post. I have heard many variations of your story. One incident involved a father who had been convicted under dubious claims, reformed his life, and moved near me with his new wife and kids.
Somebody found his criminal records on-line and quickly spread the word. Now, on some level I can understand, the backlash adults of adults against him, especially parents but they also became VERY cruel to his young kids who had NOTHING to do with his past incident. Guilt by association. I find that rather disgusting.
I have dealt with my own somewhat related issue growing up. I won’t go into the story but needless to say I to felt like I could not trust anyone or share what was going on. And contemplated and almost went through suicide three different times.
Overall I am appalled at how little empathy humanity has on the whole. And they will witch hunt somebody like you or I while actual horrors like child porn and child marriage run rampant, we are especially hypocritical here in the US. And get a lot of hell for showing empathy to those who are “sexual deviants” or whose sexual desires, identity run outside the “norm” but at the point in my life I can be open about my opinions because I know who I am and WILL NOT let others define me. I hope things are somewhat better with you it is hard to learn to trust again but at least it sounds like ou have a few friends to turn to.
The patriarchy doesn’t rest, and neither shall I!
This seems obvious, but it’s one of the most common misconceptions regarding feminism. If you’re skeptical, for whatever reason, there have been studies that show that feminists don’t hate men. In addition, if you ever happen to talk to a feminist, you will find that they do not hate men. Fighting misogyny and hating men are two different things.
Understanding that the patriarchy runs counter to the best interests of both men AND women is the biggest hurdling point for a lot of people. Equality is not something to be feared unless you have some privilege to lose, which should give you a rough picture of the kind of people who bash feminism. Internalized misogyny however unfortunately effects not just men, but also women, and thus - paradoxically - the line drawn between those seeking practical action towards gender equality, and those who oppose those actions is not one exclusively based on gender.

This is from the slut walk. One of the arguments is that girls ask for rape because they wear slutty clothes, short skirts, tight, low-cut tops. This girl is an example of the fact that rape victims can look like anyone, you, me, this girl. Rapists. Dont. Discriminate.
I promised a long time ago that I’d reblog this whenever I saw it on my dash. No regrets, it breaks my heart every single time.
an incredibly important message, rape is rape. no one is ever asking for it. a woman has the right to dress how ever they want - it is society that identifies risque dressing as ‘asking for it’, and in my opinion, that way of thinking needs to be diminished.
That way of thinking shouldn’t be diminished: it should be destroyed.
always always always reblog.
Forever reblog <3 And to the girl in this photo, if you ever see this. You are my hero.
Reblogging this helps smash the patriarchy.

I’ve come to the realization that anyone who fears equality can do so for only one reason.
Deep down, under the social conditioning, and the years of being told what is normal or what is right, it all boils down to that person fearing equality because they feel superior to whoever is seeking equality and feel that superiority is challenged by those who seek equality.
If there was no subconscious sense of superiority, there wouldn’t be such a gut reaction to this ‘challenge’… because there wouldn’t be any challenge!
I apologize to all my more political followers for all the sappy, self-involved emotional crap that I’ve been spewing for that past while.
I’m depressed. Don’t worry, I’m still actively trying to smash the patriarchy.
