I’ve seen more drugs behind the brick walls of my private college than I have ever even heard of back home in my hood.

It’s a known fact that you will find more drugs,especially hard drugs, in the suburbs than in the hood

a good 60% of posts making fun of MRAs are unrebloggable to me bc they throw fatness in there under reasons MRAs are terrible

There’s also some pretty sweet ableism thrown in there a lot of the time, for good measure

Especially when it’s criticising the body-policing misogyny of MRAs, do you see the problem?

!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has to be something we create and purchase for.  Art by women, design by women, architecture by women, books by women, comics by women, magazines by women, and writing and art that does not support bad old stereotypes.  And not just women of your own color.  Trans women, LBQ women, WoallCs.  Experiment.  Venture.  Try.

Don’t trash talk other women; talk them up.  Support women who have been victimized.  Don’t be part of the problem.  Disagree, yes, but with respect.  If other women behave badly, walk away.

This is the same man.

This works quite nicely at debunking the “beefcake guys in comics are objectified for women just like women in comics are for men!” imo.  On the left: a magazine tailored for a male audience, showing him in full beefcake-type mode with headlines about how you, too, can look like this.  On the right: a magazine tailored for a female audience, which has a headline about romance and shows him looking more or less like a normal dude.

Tell me again how comic book guys are designed for female sexual enjoyment, completely equivalent to anatomically-improbable spines and giant tits with their own individual centers of gravity, and totes aren’t just male power fantasies.

COMMENTARY

Women don’t treat men the way men treat women.

it’s also worth noting that despite all the geeks complaining about women’s impossible standards, the fantasy on the right sets a really really easy low bar to meet:

"cool clean friendly non-aggressive man who will cook a food for u"

yep what an unfair standard to be subjected to

I hate hate hate it when women in video games make sexual noises when they get hit or die in suggestive positions

like women can’t even die in a way that doesn’t exist to turn men on

how dare you sexualise female pain

PEOPLE WITH MENTAL ILLNESSES HAVE A LOWER RATE OF VIOLENCE THAN THE GENERAL POPULATION.

MOST PEOPLE WHO ARE VIOLENT DO NOT HAVE A MENTAL ILLNESS.

THE IDEA THAT PEOPLE WITH MI = VIOLENT IS GREATLY EXAGGERATED AND DUE TO NEGATIVE STEREOTYPES

THOSE OF US WITH MENTAL ILLNESSES ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE THE VICTIMS OF VIOLENCE THAN THE PERPETRATORS

SO STOP TRYING TO EXCUSE THE ACTIONS OF A FUCKING MISOGYNISTIC MURDERER

some unimaginably rapey, entitled, horrible, abusive dude created a spreadsheet documenting his wife rejecting his sexual advances, and then he sent it to her in an email before she went on a trip (check out the wife’s original post on Reddit but fair warning: the comments are about as disgusting as you’d expect from that trash heap of a website)

I SAW THIS ON A DIFFERENT WEBSITE
THE COMMENTS SAID THINGS LIKE “THE WOMAN SHOULD KNOW MEN NEED SEX” “HER EXCUSES ARE BULLSHIT, WHEN DOES WATCHING A MOVIE EXCUSE NOT GIVING YOUR MAN SOME LOVING.” “HE DESERVES SOME SEX, SHE CANT EXPECT HIM TO JUST GO WITHOUT IT BC SHE DOESNT WANT TO GIVE HIM IT.” “IT DOESNT MATTER WHETHER SHE WANTED IT OR NOT, RELATIONSHIPS ARE ABOUT GIVE AND TAKE AND SHE NEEDS TO LEARN TO GIVE HIM WHAT HE WANTS”  I ACTUALLY NEARLY VOMITTED BC PEOPLE LIKE THAT ARE SO GROSS YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO SEX AND TBH I WOULDNT WANT TO HAVE SEX WITH A GUY SO CHILDISH AND DEMANDING. ALSO CAN THE WHOLE “MEN NEED SEX, MEN CANT CONTROL THEIR URGES” FUCKING STOP 

When people say “it’s about give and take, she needs to give him what he wants even if she doesn’t, ” they’re literally saying “let him rape her.” Rape is the absence of consent. All it takes is ignoring her no. People disgust me sometimes.
And her “excuses” (reasons) are solid. Any reason to say no is solid. And this guy is so entitled and creepy. She’s busy watching her show or just got back from the gym and you feel like you’re owed her body? Right then? Fuck you, dude. She has her own life.

she doesn’t need a fucking excuse. 
I hope she prints this out and gives it to a divorce attorney.
