1. I don’t need feminism because that whole 74 cent thing doesn’t even apply to my people (we make less)

2. I don’t need feminism because held up against the delicate faerie white woman I’m a curvaceous brown succubus just asking for it… and nobody’s talking about it

3. I don’t need feminism because feminists still exalt Susan B Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton 

4. I don’t need feminism because APPARENTLY it doesn’t need me

I’ve tried to identify as a feminist, I really have. But how can I identify with a movement that doesn’t want to identify with me?

And before anti-feminists and pro injustice get excited over this: you’re way worse.

GUYS PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO HOW THEY ARE ATTACKING AND RAIDING MUSLIM HOMES IN AUSTRALIA

the police are attacking muslims in their homes in the middle of the night, arresting women in their beds, men in the morning, attacing and humiliating us all

life is getting scary here for the muslims 

I didn’t believe this but here are some sources

Summary: Apparently they were trying to find local ISIS supporters and foil an alleged plot to carry out what PM Tony Abbot called “demonstration killings” to show that ISIS isn’t just located in the Middle East. They claim to have intelligence that informed this decision to raid. The raids were carried in 12 suburbs and involved around 900 police officers. They arrested 15 people during the raids, but have only released the details of one prisoner who had direct contact with the Australian Muslim who they know is an active recruiter for ISIS. 

To me this sounds like an incredibly overblown response to an issue that could’ve been solved by one arrest. Please keep in mind that the Washington Post, the last source, is more conservative. Since these raids have happen, protests have erupted all over Australia and the Muslim Australian community is understandably fucking pissed. Don’t let this go unnoticed.

unsurprisingly, abbot reverts to cold-war tactics to distract the populace from his appalling politics and justify continued human rights abuses on christmas island. cool. what a rancid butthole.

Further proof Australia isn’t as great as people seem to think it is.

its not safe to wear a yes badge in Glasgow tonight, someone has been stabbed and there are literal fascists flooding our streets. the English defence league and orange order are in George square giving nazi salutes and burning Scottish flags. this is what it’s come to a day after the vote, a day after a no vote happening. stay safe all of you.

Yes, I would condemn him, because I believe that a real man must be a real man. God created man for procreation, it is the nature. The man for me is the support, the strength of… I won’t support a gay son.
In our time, there is a very large number of frivolous girls (and a man can be with a large number of these girls). This is freedom for men.

And a man has no right to be a f*g.

Two girls together - not the same thing as the two men together. It seems to me that lesbians look aesthetically much nicer than two men holding their hands or kissing.
But! I want to say that I’m not against gays, I just want my son to be a real man, not a f*g. I have many gay friends. I believe that being gay is all still better than murderers, thieves or drug addicts. If you choose out of all this, being gay is better than the rest.

Yulia Volkova from t.A.T.u

She may have helped many of us come to terms with our sexuality, but make no mistake she is not on our side. 

(via the6thsiren)

Just a note tha Yulia Volkova is bisexual. I know I didn’t know about this until today, because people constantly refer to t.A.T.u as “fake lesbians”.

I fear for any Muslim people in Australia right now, the news has been broadcasting details of alleged terrorist plans that have been ‘thwarted by heroic police’.

Apparently the plans were to randomly take a hostage from the streets of Sydney and excecute them publicly for the Islamic State of Iraq.

But why is the news being broadcasted? Congratulations you successfully did your job?
They shut down national security risks EVERY DAY.
Every single DAY they catch someone or other planning to blow up something, or assasinate someone. 

And part of their job is to keep it quiet, because public knowledge of threats to national security is dangerous and makes people uneasy and becomes a threat itself.

I’m really suspicious as to why they’re releasing such detailed information about the terrorist plot, when it is against their own policy.

Because if you wanted to start another Cronulla Riot, that’s exactly how you would do it.

Australia is racist and full of vicious, violent, hateful young men. At any day of the week these jumped up white boys are on a hair trigger when it comes to hate crimes.

You add this kind of inflamatory news and you’ve got racist vigilantes hunting in the streets again.

They deliberately released detailed information about a terrorist plot for the Islamic State, when it is against policy.


colourlssgreenideas:

riots are breaking out in glasgow right now, scottish flags are being burned, people are making nazi salutes, there is racism and sectarianism and god knows what else, there are supposed stabbings, people are being beaten up purely for voting Yes, but the bbc has decided that a news story more worthy of being reported is the first iphone 6 owner dropping his new phone. the anti-scottish bias from the bbc is reaching new levels of absurdity

A lot can happen in five hours.

In that time, pro injustice can provide me with enough angry privileged tears to last me for months.

And they have!

Thanks so much for that, and thank you for continuing to prove my point! I know you must be very disappointed that the inbox isn’t open so that you can fill it all the way up as well (I know how much you love your anonymous donations!), but I assure you this is plenty.

Does being thin always make you privileged? I grew up very thin and with really small breasts and butt and was always told how unattractive that was and it really damaged me. I just want to know if my experience is something I have a right to be hurt by or just something I should get over because I'm thin and privileged. This is a legit question, and I really want to know of I'm just being whiney.

The answer to the first part is yes, and the answer to the second part… is also yes.

Look, I’ve literally never seen a fat acceptance advocate go around picking on thinner bodies. It wouldn’t be the same even if they did, but it mostly just doesn’t happen. Nobody says you can’t be hurt or upset or affected by mean comments, we’re just saying don’t put it on the same level as oppression. And when we’re having those conversations and you bring it up and say, “Well what about me?”, that’s what you’re doing. So don’t do that, but we don’t seriously expect you to not be affected by years of body shaming.

Oh eat your own bullshit and choke!!!

So much bullshit. Bullying is bullying, you asshat

Remember: bullying is bullying. Unless you want to tell someone to “eat [their] own bullshit and choke!!!” supposedly to protest it, in which case it’s fine.

Thin privilege deniers are always this pathetic. They take anyone saying the words “thin privilege” as a personal attack, but they frequently have to resort to digging up old posts to even have something to complain about. They claim to protest all body shaming, but their blogs are full of posts of them going out of their way to attack fat people for their appearances, for daring not to hate themselves, and for existing in general.

Every time I look at their blogs, I never find any of this thin shaming they claim happens so often. I see them derail posts about fat women not being able to find clothes with “But thin girls aren’t ‘real women’. Oh go choke on a jelly doughnut”, even though thin girls weren’t even mentioned. I see them going out of their way to harass fat people. But you’d think if this thin shaming happens so damn often, they’d have blogs full of examples instead of just having blogs where they provide examples that prove our point.

But none of that up there is harassment or bullying or body shaming or even just rude behavior. Apparently it only counts when it happens to thin people.

hi I'm sorry and I'm not sure if you guys will answer this cause it's not about rape but I have borderline personality disorder and major depression and some people in my school just found out that i attempted suicide last year before i moves to the school and now they're all drawing red lines on their wrists and telling me to do it properly next time and I cant tell the teachers i"/ scared i don't know what to do

I can’t give you very concrete advice. I can’t define what you do, this is your decision because it’s you that will be affected by it, but I can give you a few options and ideas.

If you have close friends at school, try explaining to them how this is effecting you. They can help provide a barrier between you and those harassing you and defend you at times- that can help your emotional state a lot.

Otherwise, possibly speaking to your parents, or someone else you feel can safely represent you, and have them help approach the school for you. This can even be a school counsellor or a friend of some sort. Often approaching people at higher levels in the school, rather than teachers, can make things easier.

Ultimately, you are better than this harassment, you deserve better. I’m not going to tell you to just “not let it get under your skin” or whatever- there’s nothing helpful about telling people to lie down and accept abuse. It doesn’t stop the emotional impact. But I will assure you that this doesn’t indicate ANYTHING about you, only them. Your history doesn’t make you a bad person in any way, but I know that when it continues for a while, you can feel like you’re the problem. I promise you’re not. You have our love and support.

Do any of our followers have any other suggestions on how to help prevent the bullying and harassment?
