    "My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….

    First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”

    But here is what I think you should know.

    You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.

    You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.

    You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).

    You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.

    In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.

    In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”

    Reblogging because I mentioned this study in a post the other day and someone reblogged & replied insinuating that I’d made it up, but I didn’t have the citation on hand right then. As I said then: rape culture is what teaches rapists that they aren’t rapists.

    Woah

    well he really should have worn more protective clothing if he didn’t want that to happen
    sounds to me like he was asking for it

    Are we really sure he was actually shot and decapitated? Idk, sounds like something he would’ve made up. Guys make false decapitation accusations all the time, you know. 

    If he didn’t want to be decapitated, he shouldn’t have worn a shirt that showed off his neck

    i’m printing this out and posting it all over my base.

    the use of the word “feminazi” says a lot about a man

    comparing a woman’s desire to take away men’s collective ability to hurt women to genocide and facism

    well

    says how much priority he places on being able to hurt women

    7 huge problems left by the World Cup in Brazil

     The long list of controversies before the tournament’s start included mass evictions, violent protests, police brutality and construction worker deaths. But now that the party is over, the buzz about the games is mostly good, and the problems that the media once covered with such concern are slowly being swept under the rug.
