modernistwitchery: - “is that YOUR gear?” (i’m setting it up, you dingus, why wouldn’t it be mine) - dude starts plugging shit in for me without asking - ‘wait up, sweetie. i know you’re carrying the gear, but girlfriends don’t get in free.’ (i’m A MEMBER OF THE BAND, ASSHOLE) - ‘so which one of these guys is your boyfriend?’ (none of them but it’s not your goddamned business) - dude in...

thespiritwas: Sylvia Rivera kicking ass on stage after some radfems & transphobes tried to refuse her the right to speak at the 1973 Christopher Street Liberation Day rally. Said radfems then had their own march in part protesting trans participation in Pride. A precursor to today’s Dyke March. 40 years later in the very same park trans women are still fighting for space within Pride as...

Just a joke.
blackenedbutterfly: strangeasanjles: spunkmate: stfuconfederates: TW FOR RAPE, RACISM, PHOBIAS ET ALL, AUSTIN ISN’T FUCKING AROUND. This is something that I’ve talked about before, but the mass realization that Daniel Tosh (along with a whopping shitpile of comedians) is a horrible person has made me think about it in a little bit more detail. So: Rape jokes, racist jokes, trans jokes,...
Pick yourself up. Keep going.
For those who say that rap music and/or Black...
stfuapologists: May I present the most progressive and feminist rapper I can imagine: And then the most prominent homophobic and assholish rapper: So yeah. “White” music is just as backward as “black” music and you have to judge these things on individual cases. Don’t give me that Dan Savage bullshit. tupac ilu
i’m interviewing for my dream job in a week and a half. that is all.
Things that are disappointing: people you really like defending rape jokes on the whole shitty, perverse “it’s great/our right to make jokes about Awful Things” because “nothing is off limits.” It’s your right to trigger me, and I don’t even know how many others? Excuse me? Sorry, bro, I’m with Dworkz on this one. GFY :)
truth bombs: personal edition
aside from the obvious abhorrence, i think the tosh thing irks me so much because at the end of last year, i was in what i believe could have been the most dangerous relationship of my adult life and this guy loved tosh. that was my introduction to his crude humor; this ex was also the person to introduce me to one of the greatest hits of misogyny, Shit Girls Say. it gives me chills to think that...

very attractive dude makes comment where sexual assault is the punchline, very attractive dude is no longer attractive now just plain disgusting. as a feminist, or even simply as a woman, it actually doesn’t matter if you “have your guard up all the time” because this shit will just knock into you anyway. but, ironically, this is precisely why we have our guard up.
[TW rape culture]
stfurapeculture: stfuapologists: You see these names? Every one of them is an awful human being. Nobody should ever hire them, vote for them, work with them, treat them with the respect we reserve for our equals, talk to them or hesitate to punch their fucking lights out. These are criminals. These are pieces of scum. These are evil. And now their names are here, on the Internet, forever,...
