the term “SJW” doesn’t even hold weight anymore because it is literally something people call every minority that they come across that does something they dislike.
they don’t even need to seem angry either, you can just go like “my pronouns are they/them” and you are suddenly a social justice warrior.
Comedian Hari Kondabolu (harikondabolu) humorously points out an inconvenient fact about Superman. (Not that you should start rooting for Lex Luthor.)
YouTube comments indicate that a lot of anti-immigrant folks don’t like this. Neither do some nerds. I, however, am still proud of this piece.
Anita Sarkeesian has 99 problems. They are all misogyny.
I got down and dirty with mainstream gaming culture and how it feeds a culture of male entitlement. You want to talk about misogyny in gaming? Maybe it’s time to start reframing games — and gamers.
“The way I dress is really about the message I want to send out to the world about who I am. Growing up in Alabama, I was black. I was poor. I was assigned male at birth — that’s how I like to put it. These things defined me, but I’m not any of these things. Clothes were a way for me to announce to the world who I was. I am not any of these things. This is who I am." - Laverne Cox
She is glorious. Beautiful. Love what she had to say about beauty politics here. ❤
You’re always in my thoughts, Palestine.

You and me both. Especially the next person to tell me “Mike Brown was innocent and trying to surrender when they shot him 11 times in the back” cause holy fucking shit this website doesn’t even know the FACTS of this case.
Mike Brown was unarmed though. Yeah he robbed that store but did the cop really need to shoot him multiple times? No. There’s other people who are way more dangerous than Mike Brown that were apprehended.
For the MILLIONTH time. No one is saying that he NEEDED To be shot or DESERVED it. Pay attention here. Mike Brown assaulted the officer, tried to get his gun, ran from him, turned back, taunted him, and rushed at him again. Now the officer had been beaten in the face, Mike was HUGE and his training kicked in. When that happens, for any officer or really anyone who handles a gun, they are told SHOOT UNTIL THE THREAT STOPS. Mike kept running at him and he kept shooting. DO YOU NOT FUCKING SEE WHAT HAPPENED HERE? This wasn’t some innocent kid on his knees BEGGING for help this was a HUGE GUY BUM RUSHING A MUCH SMALLER OFFICER. This HUGE GUY already HIT THE OFFICER IN THE FACE. His face was SWOLLEN IT MESSED UP HIS VISION and probably screwed with his ability to hit the target FIRST TIME. I swear do my followers not even read the FACTS now and just make up shit? Because this has got to be like the 80th time someone has tried to correct me with the “HE DIDN’T DESERVE TO GET SHOT” Bullshit ignoring EVERYTHING ELSE THAT HAPPENED AFTER HE ROBBED THE STORE. HOLY SHIT STOP CHERRY PICKING FACTS OF THIS CASE PLEASE!
that’s a big imagination you have there
The officer is 6’3 tho
well you know being black makes us magically taller and heavier
PSA: the above account of “facts” only agrees with the account of events given by the offending officer in the case and is in almost total disagreement with eye witness accounts, the legal position stated by the store owner of the alleged robbery, and the laws of physics. Almost every “fact” cited in the above post is known to be false or dubious; video of the officer after and records of the hospital show that Darren Wilson did not in fact suffer an injury. Time stamps of the video from the store and time references from reports and recordings of the scene of the shooting disagree with the Ferguson PD’s assertion that the man in the video is Mike Brown given the distances involved. Several eye witness accounts of the altercation between Officer Wilson and Mike Brown implicate Officer Wilson as the aggressor in the altercation going so far as to attempt to pull Mike Brown into the officer’s car; by most accounts officer Wilson fired his weapon at Mike Brown as Brown attempted to flee as corroborated by the autopsy of Mike Brown; Mike Brown was shot several times from behind and then at least once from a kneeling position in the head in what can accurately be described as an execution. Eye witness accounts—with the exception of Officer Wlson’s account—agree that Wilson shot Brown in the head and shot him at least one more time once he fell prone. One of the autopsy reports included the commentary that the trajectories of the bullets indicated an unsafe fanning of shots which unnecessarily risked public safety and showed a clear disregard for the possibility of collateral damage.
PS: Mike Brown was denied EMT care on the scene, his body left in the sun for four hours, and his body hauled away in a police SUV. In even the official account of events, these are atrocious behaviors which in other contexts would rightly be called war crimes. The denial of medical care to injured people whether civilian or enemy combatant is in violation of international law. The execution of a person in the manner committed by Wilson—the double tap as it is called—is in violation of international law. This is an extrajudicial killing and no amount of the police officers crying, “I felt threatened” is going to change that fact.
Call out the bullshit wherever it pops up. Educate yourself about the available evidence and challenge the prevailing racist, classit narratives that masquerade as objective truth.
that op’s version of events was posted today is really alarming even if they are an anti-sj troll blog
I was always confused by the statement “Teach men not to rape" because it implies that men are taught to rape women. Or if men aren’t "taught" to not rape women then we will have the urge to do so.
My parents never taught me not to rape women. It was just common sense. The reality is some men (and women) are just sick. No matter what they are “taught” it is very well possible that they will still rape someone.
You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink.
Bruh using this logic is like a white person saying “my parents never taught me to be racist so I can’t be racist” you don’t just learn social norms from your parents you learn it from school media and other institutions. Of course boys aren’t just being sat down and told “if a girl doesn’t want to have sex from you you take it then” but they’re taught socially things like a woman being drunk is a pass or that if a dude takes a woman out to dinner then he deserves sex.
And your point of saying “some people are just sick” is dismissive as well cause you’re basically saying it’s gonna happen and people should just prepare for it which is a very dangerous thing
1 of out of every 6 American women have been a victim of attempted or completed rape so under your theory there are a whole lot of people who are “just sick”
2/3’s of rape are committed by someone a victim knew
That’s a scary thought to say basically someone you know is gonna be sick enough to rape you one day
Rape is not some undeniable condition
It’s a social condition that can be changed
All the stats I stated can be found on rainn.org
and even if they aren’t the rapists, they’re still friends with one. they’re still dismissive and they still laugh at rape jokes. someone’s supporting these people.
isn’t saying “they’re just sick” ableist?
"Anne Bonny and Mary Read were pirates, as renowned for their ruthlessness as for their gender, and during their short careers challenged the sailors’ adage that a woman’s presence on shipboard invites bad luck."
Sculpture by Erik Christianson.
I’m not entirely sure that the statue really needed to have a tit out.
How dare women try to have nipples.
Actually I’ve seen this before and I can tell you— it’s because these women were bad ass pirates and when they killed someone they’d expose one or both breasts so that when their victim died, (s)he knew that they were killed by a woman.
ACTUALLY Anne Bonny purposely wore loose fitting clothes and displayed her breasts openly at all times during battle - mainly because men were distracted by them, and she took pleasure in killing said men while they were too busy staring at her breasts. Mary Read dressed mainly as a man (after posing as her deceased brother, Mark, for the entirety of her childhood) and both ladies cross-dressed from time to time, hopping between ships. They were known as the ‘fierce hell cats’ due to their ferocious tempers, and were key elements to Captain ‘Calico Jack’ Rackham’s crew - they were the only two known female pirates in the Golden Age of Caribbean piracy. IN FACT, when the ship was captured by the British Navy, Anne and Mary were the ONLY TWO pirates who fought while the males of the crew hid - they were all tried to be hung as pirates but Bonny and Read were both pregnant and were pardoned.
Calico Jack was a lover to Bonny, and as he was to be hung, Bonny’s final words to him were, “Had you fought like a man, you need not be hung like a dog.” Bonny and Read were possibly two of the most badass fucking pirates and they were FEMALE. The more you know.
These fuckers at the hospital are covering shit up. They’re saying 3 people died, all international media is saying 3 people died, that is a blatant fucking lie.
They’re saying one of the 3 dead died of drowning. You wanna know HOW that person died? They were fucking shot so they fell in a ditch where they “drowned”.
They’re saying the children you see at the hospital are there because their parents are injured not the children themselves. They’re twisting everything they possibly can to make it seem not as bad as it is even though there was clear video footage of injured children.
14 people dead and where the fuck is the accountability—where the fuck are the courts so ready to suo motu every other fucking case.
Forty-six million white adults today can trace the origins of their family wealth to the Homestead Act of 1862. This bill gave away valuable acres of land for free to white families, but expressly precluded participation by Blacks.
