Good lord people demand so much from me. I have no time for tone policing asshats right now.

I’m sure it’s very difficult for you

You’re a fucking creep. I wish I wasn’t on mobile so I could add that Regina George “why are you so obsessed with me?” gif.

Seriously look at this “blog.”

chocolate-voice asked: Hey, just wanted to apologise about my comment on that reblog. I posted an apology on my tumblr, should've thought about how it could've been construed and how I say things. I really like your tumblr, by the way. Just thought I should say something..

I appreciate you being open examining how your comments came across.

herlavenderheart asked: That question the submitted was on an exam I had for adolescent psychology in grad school. Maybe their class had the same book! I remember thinking it was wtf last year.

Wow, that makes it even worse….

I originally wasn’t going to add anything on this but then I saw the person in the tank top’s face. Seems to be joking around about guzzling that 2 liter to me. If this pic featured 2 thin women it would be a cute joke but it’s fat people, so of course it’s awful and we should be disgusted. We have no idea what was going on here in reality, and frankly it’s none of our business.

hellkittenslove asked: Hey- just want to say thank you for being here and doing what you do. I really appreciate it.

XO!

Y’ALL

I just got an email from someone featured here…and I’ll be SUPER nice and not say who, but here is how he has approached asking that I take down the post about him :

"You may recognize my name because it has been all over the internet for the past few months. I would just like to say that I am very disappointed in the way you have handled a post that was sent to you. I apologize if my post came across as offensive, but I feel like I have been unfairly exploited. What I meant in my post is that women who sleep around may find it harder to gain the respect of their peers. The rest of my comments from the original post were not attached to this post, which means the internet is only seeing half of the story. I am receiving very aggressive and threatening comments that are border-lining on harassment and I would like you to take down the post…I’ve been slandered and called a misogynist. This behaviour is absolutely unacceptable…Please respond at your earliest convenience."

And it has a screen shot of more context that in no way makes him seem less sexist. And that faux apology? And the total misuse of “slander?”

I’m somewhat speechless.

shenanaguns asked: do you think the people that argue that rapists deserve rape, which i think is wrong simply on a 'two wrongs don't make a right' basis, really advocate for that honestly, or is it just anger-inspired hyperbole? either way it's wrong, but i can understand being filled with rage towards rapists and having the thought in your head without really believing it should be practiced

I have no idea why they say it, but I do know that those statements, made in hyperbole OR earnest, both contribute to rape culture regardless.

macgruberrr asked: don't feel bad; that person clearly came at you but didn't actually expect a response, so they tried to make it your fault. you do a great job, especially of being tactful and respectful.

Thanks :) sometimes I am a jerk because it’s merited but I wasn’t even being that bitchy this time.

Good lord people demand so much from me. I have no time for tone policing asshats right now.

Advocating rape as a punishment for rapists contributes to rape culture.

I love how this says “reminder” as if that isn’t obvious. I haven’t heard of a single person advocating rape as a punishment for rapists, so I don’t…

I’m rude for explaining myself? What are you even talking about??

My boyfriends father posted a disgusting throw back Thursday on how he believes women should act, and then later posted this status.

2dfan95 asked: About the woman who got her "this is what a feminist looks like" pic, I've seen on Facebook. And someone commented "this is also what a lifelong virgin looks like" like really? What's wrong with being a virgin? The meme is also fat shaming her too which is pretty upsetting. I'm already insecure enough myself about being fat and a virgin woman, and reading comments like that just makes the insecurities worse like its bad to be a virgin

Aw I’m sorry :( Virginity is a sexist, heteronormative BS social construct anyhow.

Side note, that woman apparently started a blog, wearewhatfeministslooklike

I love how this says “reminder” as if that isn’t obvious. I haven’t heard of a single person advocating rape as a punishment for rapists, so I don’t know why this even needs to be said.

Wow. It’s almost like you don’t run a call out blog highlighting rape “joke” makers and rape apologists w/ posts that get thousands of notes.

I literally get 3-10 reblogs a month in my activity stream on my stuff where someone says something like “he deserves to be raped with a lead pipe” or some shit. It’s disgusting and counter productive and often said by self described feminists, so I’m just trying to collect my own. Thx.

straightened asked: feminism does not mean more equality towards women, it means equal rights towards both genders. sorry, but you make it seem like it goes only towards women.

Go back to reblogging pictures of latte art and skinny white girls, your worthless opinions aren’t wanted here.

It DOES mean equal rights for both genders. Feminism is the empowerment of women to be treated as equal to men in society.

#1. There are more than two genders.

#2.  This attitude implies that men are, once again, the standard.  Why is it that women must be “empowered” to reach the status of men?  Why are MEN considered the norm who don’t have to change or lose any privileges, and instead it’s women who must make the effort to treated as equal?  It’s complete androcentric bullshit.

#3.  How adorable that you call yourself a feminist and then spend your energy telling women what feminism means.

HAHAHA What does “more equality” mean anyway? Basic word understanding fail. 

how about feminists get along with one another and fight the oppressors, eh?

Which is exactly why the comment sent to MM in the first place is so goddamn annoying.

And I just had to point out its incredible lack of logic. Literally no one is saying “women should get more equality!!!” Wtf does that even mean??
