tbh a few of the white girl jokes I’ve seen lately have come across as “I’d like to be sexist but I want people to think I’m actually fighting for social justice”

I take pro-life women a lot more seriously than pro-life men. A pro-life man just comes across as a misogynist trying to control women; a pro-life woman might have good (but a little misplaced) intentions.

Quick question about veganism:

When buying food, do you have to find out how it was grown and if it involved animals? For example, are you allowed to consume plant material that was grown in a traditional farm that used horse- or ox-drawn plows? Do you need to find crops that weren’t grown with manure-based fertilizer?

When white western men condemn muslim men for misogyny, they’re not doing it because they give a fuck about women, because if they did they’d start by addressing the sexism they perpetuate personally. They don’t give a fuck about women, they want an excuse to be racist. 

Here’s the thing, if a guy doesn’t want to go down on you, that’s his thing. Nobody should be expected to perform a sexual task they are not comfortable with. if you still wanna go down on him, great, if not, fine. But if he thinks you should suck him because that’s OK but eating you isn’t, that’s a bunch of misogynistic bullshit and don’t have any of it.

foxyshy:

so let me get this straight. anti-choicers took $500,000 dollars worth of pennies and sealed them in a glass case as a “memorial” to “victims” of abortion. i’m going to say that again. these people have locked away $500,000 dollars as a “tribute” to dead blobs of cells instead of donating that money to actual living breathing children who don’t have basic necessities or homes.

anti-choicers are incredible

You know those gifs you see of elephants painting and everyones like “oh wow that’s so amazing and intelligent I love elephants”?

If you really love those elephants, read this and stop reblogging those gifs.

OK so I always get a little bit frustrated when people refer to a dark-skinned anime character as “POC” and talk it up as if it’s so progressive. Because most anime takes place in Japan starring ethnic Japanese people, so most anime characters are then POC.

I mean yes it’s great that an anime character has dark skin or is otherwise identifiable as someone who is not white or eastern Asian, and if you want to talk about that that’s fine, it’s OK to call an animated character “dark-skinned” or “black” or “Latina” or whatever it is you want to say. But don’t erase Asian people as POC?

Just a friendly reminder that u should call ur animals by gender-neutral or multiple pronouns.  They CAN understand you and YES it is possible for an animal to be trans.  Your cat having a penis does not make it male.  It is straight up animal abuse to deliberately misgender your pets so please do not do it.

Tolerate =/= Respect

atheistfactionary:

No, I don’t have to respect you or your religion.  Respect is EARNED. And I reserve my respect for ideas and people who aren’t fueled by hatred and tribal divisiveness. Tolerance just means we don’t run around blowing up your churches, or protesting your existence, or funding politicians who think you should be deported, or passing laws to make it illegal for you to go to churches or read your bibles.

It does NOT mean that people outside your little cult can’t make fun of it. Or you.  Or call it a cult.  Or post silly memes online making fun of your cult and laughing amongst ourselves. Freedom to have your religion does not, at all, ever, mean I can’t sit back and make fun of it.

Heck, if my memory serves me, it’s what many of you go do once a week.  Talk shit about “nonbelievers,” “atheists,” “infidels,” “heathens” or whatever colorful term your leaders use now.  The way I see it, theists have been slinging mud for thousands of years (along with knives, bonfires and poison).  I’m pretty sure a cartoon on imgur isn’t going to destroy your gilded temple anytime soon.  Kindly gtfover yourself and stop crying wolf. :*  There is no “war” against religion.  I am not your boogeyman.  I really, cannot care less what invisible friend you invest in.  It’s your time, your money.  Have at it.

I liked the My Beautiful Woman video, it was rather cute. But I had a problem with it in that the “think twice before you judge a parent” tagline implied that because she didn’t have the baby because of premarital sex it makes her more honorable than a young biological mother. It implies that if she did have her child from premarital sex with her “sugar daddy” then she should be judged.

True story: my parents had a college fund for me—partially funded by relatives—but then it was emptied to pay off the mortgage.

Not even mad, it means my mom can never kick me out of the house.
