    It’s a shame that we still promote this “men know best for women” rape culture nonsense so avidly throughout our society. We’ve got to change the media and what we are exposing to future generations.

    Thank you Joe Biden for pointing out that you can be pro-life personally but pro-choice politically. The country needed to hear that.

  3. Fan fiction is making teenagers better writers and better satirists, and allowing them to explore sexuality in a way decided by them rather than dictated by the entertainment industry. A purity ring doesn’t carry much meaning when Ron Weasley is pulling it off with his teeth.

    Before you defend Chris Brown, let alone support him, read the police report of what happened between him and Rihanna in 2009.

    Damn.

    i am fucking speechless.

    THIS is why we should not support this man.  (And, for the record, Rolling Stone, it’s not funny that Chris Brown makes light of his DV charge when hitting on women.) 

    This is why I won’t ignore Chris Brown when people continue to fawn over him, and when he’s said what he did “wasn’t a big deal.”

    It was a big. fucking. deal.

    Chris Brown is a piece of shit of monumental proportions and he should have to apologize for this every day for the rest of his life. The fact that the fucking scumbag somehow feels victimized by this is abhorrent.

    Fuck him and fuck anyone who defends him.

    What a disgusting excuse for a human being.

    This is not acceptable.

    “Think about how much cheaper it would be for all of us if they were raped just the right amount.”

    Sometimes, you can’t help but make it personal. Liz Trotta is just an awful, awful person. It really is that simple.

    She shouldn’t just be fired from Fox News. She should be fired from Fox News out of a cannon.

    This bitch
    THIS BITCH

    Yes because obviously the problem here is the money, or the fact tht women are in the military at all, NOT THE FACT THAT THE RAPISTS AREN’T BEING DEALT WITH.
    I mean call me crazy, but if you’re having a problem with some crime being committed, removing the criminals seems like a much better solution than removing the victims. :| 

    And to any members of the military who have ever defended, covered up, or otherwise assisted the actions of a rapist in their ranks: FUCK YOU.  Seriously, I don’t care if that guy fucking dragged your ass out of a heavy combat zone in the middle of a firebombing, that does NOT give him the right to fucking VIOLATE and BRUTALIZE someone, especially one of your fellow soldiers who is fighting alongside you.  How DARE you turn your backs on these women and how DARE you allow this shit to keep happening.  You are a disgrace to those who serve our country with true honor and dignity.

Target keeps getting better. 

this is a great! i feel like it’s a noble attempt to rebuild its bruised relationship with LGBT shoppers and i hope they continue to do so.  i think some healthy skepticism of Target is still necessary because their anti-gay efforts continued after they said they wouldn’t and they suspiciously refused to stock Frank Ocean’s new album *right after* he came out.


Glad to see Target is making an effort…but those wounds are NOT yet healed…

    Casual sexism is responding to my brother saying “I don’t want children” with “fair enough”, but responding to me saying “I don’t want children” with “well, your mind will change”/”not right now, anyway.”

    Casual sexism is assuming that all women want children. 

    Casual sexism is a male childcare worker picking up a child being seen as ‘creepy’, while a female childcare worker picking up a child does not receive a second look.

    Casual sexism is the “maternity gene.”

I’m not, like, suggesting that meth is cool or anything (I like teeth), but this billboard is sooo problematic.
First off, let me say that just because your child makes life choices that you don’t agree with doesn’t make them any less your kid. Or it shouldn’t. But the implication here is even worse than that: the ad is basically stating that the girl is no longer a person. She’s a prostitute. 
GUYS. Why do we insist on defining woman based solely on the roles they play in their relationships with others? 
The problem here isn’t that this girl started using meth and then became a prostitute; the problem is that she is being denied her personhood. She may be a drug addict and a prostitute, but that not ALL of who she is, just like being someone’s daughter was not her whole identity before. The obvious conclusion that we can draw from this is that prostitutes are people, too. But, guess what? Daughters are people, too. Women are people. ALL women, no matter what role they play in society, are people, not one-dimensional caricatures assigned to them by the world around them. 

There’s nothing shameful in prostitution. I think it’s empowering. If people would pay me for experiencing my body, shit, that’d be fab.

I can’t hear you over bin Laden’s dead body, the end of the Iraq War, the decrease of the unemployment rate, health care reform, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, his support of the LGBT community in general, and his natural badassness.
