So BMW has pulled its advertising from Gawker.com, which is incredible, but there are still a ton of other companies that haven’t. I’ve taken the liberty of compiling a list of companies that advertise on Gawker, as well as the contact information for these companies. Send tweets, send emails, comment on their Facebook pages. Let them know what’s going on and why they should end their partnership. (Please keep in mind that finding all of this information isn’t exactly easy. If any of it is wrong, or if you have more that you’d like to add, please let me know so I can revise the post.)
fuckingradfems managed to escape her shitty job today, so let’s all pour one out in celebration of her awesomeness.
Aww :) my heart. I just saw this. It is a wonderful day indeed. Got my final paycheck and I couldn’t be happier.
White feminism in a nutshell
Hang that sign off her neck like a scarlet goddamn letter and make her stand in a predominantly black thoroughfare. Somewhere she wouldn’t get hurt, but would probably get yelled at at best, spat on at worst, where she could just stand there and realize how much of an asshole she’s being until she’s fucking sorry.
If she’s going to co-opt, best let her face the group she’s co-opting while she does it.
I find this image is a perfect representation of how feminism is utterly shameless when it comes to co-opting the movements of actual minorities and making it all about themselves. The sad thing is? That phrase is a pretty common one and is a John Lennon/Yoko Ono song, and the phrase was coined by Ono herself. It’s not just that one sign: I’ve seen it crop up quite a few times in feminist protests and such.
Between this and “homophobia is the fear that gay men will treat you like women” and as one feminist just put it “homophobia is really about misogyny because its not like straight acting gay men are the ones experiencing it”
Pretty much everyone in SJ co-opts the Blacks. Suzy Park compared Asians not having enough good acting roles to the civil rights struggle. The whole thing is a struggle to be ‘blacker than the Blacks’, metaphorically speaking. Victimhood is power.
The funniest thing about Suey Park was that she made a post criticising wealthy asian americans such as herself appropriating the struggles of working class asian immigrants to validate themselves
Guess only Suey is allowed to do that.
But I try to leave her alone now. It’s obvious she is suffering from some sort of depression or mental disorder, and after a while it got depressing seeing her destroy her reputation over and over and over and over and her idiot drones enabling a very unhappy woman turning herself into an internet joke.
And now a message to our boys: You matter. Just because you’re not a bulging beefcake doesn’t mean girls aren’t going to like you, Just because you’re not a thin as a rod doesn’t mean you’re unattractive. Just because your looks doesn’t meet someone’s preference doesn’t mean you’re undateable. If you want to change your appearance you have to accept it first. You’re not weak, you’re not disposable, and you do not deserve to die.
I’m going to stop focusing on tumblr drama and “sides” and start focusing on individual people I care about
Some people aren’t going to like me, that’s perfectly okay and it’s their prerogative. I’ll just focus on the people that do.
Not because of any anti-feminist sentiment in particular.
Because I have seen the following said in posts -
'You're not a feminist if you watch porn'
'You're not a feminist if you have sex with men.'
'You're not a feminist if you are male'
'You're not a feminist if you…
I can't I'm having a threesome with an older couple

medusa, trying to turn you to stone, but you accidentally called her “melissa” when you first walked in and now you’re too embarrassed to look at her. “it’s alright” she keeps saying “i get it all the time” but you still won’t look. u don’t even remember the stone thing until later

Oh my god OTHER PEOPLE DO THIS TOO???
