The Roaring Girl

I think it’s weird that teenage girls know more about giving blowjobs than they do about masturbation. It makes me sick to my stomach that so many young girls think sex is just about a guy finishing.

Remember how sex ed never taught us the things we actually needed to know? Most of what I learned came from magazines, books, or my peers.

  • Western Patriarchy: A woman wearing revealing clothing is just asking to be raped. If she hadn't worn that short skirt out in public, she wouldn't have been assaulted. It's her fault for dressing like a slut and then trusting men not to treat her like one.
  • Western Patriarchy: Women who wear religious head coverings and hide their skin in public are so oppressed! It's not like she's going to get raped just because a man sees her ankles or neck! Why don't those women stop covering their bodies and just learn to trust men?

Bill Maher Tweets Hamas is Like Dealing With a 'Crazy Woman'

I probably shouldn’t give this guy any more attention, but he really makes my blood boil.  It also bothers me that he isn’t held accountable the same way Fox News is.  If you’re going to call out sexism, misogyny, ableism, racism, and other forms of intolerance and systematic oppression, do it on all sides of the political spectrum. 

So, I guess that’s what I’m trying to do here.  Bill Maher should not be a liberal hero.  He’s a misogynist who thinks he can get away with it because his targets are liberal opponents.  He can’t and he shouldn’t.

Here’s why it’s a terrible idea to let your kids watch Fox News.
While commenting on a female perpetrator fleeing to Canada after committing statutory rape, a Fox correspondent said this:
"If you’re a sixteen-year-old kid and you have sex with your best friend’s mom you usually get high-fives."
And Jesse Watters didn’t stop there.
"She’s not that attractive so you might not have that kind of reception … She’s not Debra Lafave.” 
This isn’t the first time a man on Fox’s Outnumbered downplayed the seriousness of statutory rape. For reference, see: Tucker Carlson, who told America to "lighten up" on the crime and said that men understand that sexual harassment from a female teacher is the "greatest thing that ever happened." A month later he attacked a kid for reporting statutory rape as "whiny."
We’re seeing a trend here, and it’s Fox’s glorification of crimes against America’s youth. This is especially problematic when an estimated 1 in 6 men go through unwanted or abusive sexual experiences before they turn 18.

How rape culture handles male victims.

what’s the point of being a fan if you’re not a critical one? what’s the point of absorbing media without the intention of analyzing it? i don’t understand why some people wholeheartedly defend their faves’ flaws and shortcomings, when pointing out and not supporting your faves’ problematic aspects DOES NOT MAKE YOU ANY LESS OF A FAN BUT MAKES YOU AN ENGAGED AND AWARE CONSUMER

See, this is why Verizon’s “tell her she’s pretty smart, too” ad pisses me off.  Yes, it’s important to tell girls we value more than just looks, but it’s also so very important that we tell little girls of color that they’re beautiful. Period. End of sentence.  No more “she’s pretty for a [insert race or skin color here]” or “you’re so exotic” or any of that.

If Girls Hit On Guys Like Guys Hit On Girls - Video

LOOK AT THIS. LOOK AT THIS, MEN WHO DO THIS, AND FEEL FOOLISH

Do you see how ridiculous this looks? How obscene?

When you say you’re a feminist…I hope you really know what that means. It means standing up for women of color.

Standing by black women who must deal with being referred to as welfare queens or ratchet.

Being a feminist is standing beside immigrant women who deal with wage theft, unsafe working conditions, and being referred to as leaving anchor babies in America.

It means standing beside Native American women who face domestic violence and rape at unprecedented rates.

It means standing beside Muslim women who choose to live out their faith and face Islamaphobia, sexism and ignorance constantly.

It means standing beside Asian women who have been misrepresented in the media to be thought of as only submissive and quiet.

Please recognize that feminism impacts the lives of every single one of these groups…but we are all women

Women should NOT be forced to feed their babies in a bathroom, all because we live in a misogynistic, porn-warped society that’s been brainwashed to believe that female breasts used for anything other than male pleasure is “indecent”. Support public breast feeding and end the porn culture.

Forever reblog

So if a woman can show her entire boob as long as the nipple isn’t visible… why have we made breast feeding a social taboo? I don’t get it. The nipple is off serving it’s purpose as a fucking nipple and people are upset by it?

the logic doesn’t add up there.

Keep in mind that some places do have breast feeding exceptions to public indecency/nudity laws.  The law may protect your right to breast feed.

If/when I have children, I’m going to walk around with a copy of the California civil code, and highlight the section that says I’m allowed to breast feed in public.  Infants don’t control when they’re hungry.  Deal with it.
