I can’t handle the near daily reports of queer and gender non-conforming youth suicides.
I really… just.. can’t…
Agreed it hurts my heart to think about the people in my life who went through those dark times and even more so to know that young people are still going through it…the intolerance and hate has got to stop.
What is this, the millionth app that objectifies and sexualizes Asian females? FUCK YOU.
This just gives the creepy Asiaphile guy even more reason to stalk me and try to talk to me on the bus. Again. FUCK. YOU.
And I didn’t even throw up in my mouth until the “pick the ethnicity for your asian girl first” bit.
DESIGN YOUR DREAM ASIAN GIRL?
LIFE IS REAL. PEOPLE SHOULD JUST DIE.
Wow…hey guys didn’t you realize “exotic Asian” women were solely put here for the sexual satisfaction of American guys…duh!! It blows my mind that shit like this still happens it’s gross guys. Do you get to choose her personality and intelligence level too?! I know people shrug this shit off as “oh well its pretend” that doesn’t make it any less degrading and offensive….Fucktards!
“Even 39% isn’t high by historical standards. Under Eisenhower, the top tax rate was 91%. Under Nixon, it was 70%. Obama just wants to kick it back to 39 — just three more points for the very rich. Not back to 91, or 70. Three points. And they go insane. Steve Forbes said that Obama, quote “believes from his inner core that people… above a certain income have more than they should have and that many probably have gotten it from ill-gotten ways.” Which they have. Steve Forbes, of course, came by his fortune honestly: he inherited it from his gay egg-collecting, Elizabeth Taylor fag-hagging father, who inherited it from his father. Of course then they moan about the inheritance tax, how the government took 55% percent when Daddy died — which means you still got 45% for doing nothing more than starting out life as your father’s pecker-snot.” -Bill Maher (via)
LOL, this reminds me of that docu Born Rich done by that insufferable twerp of an heir to the Johnson and Johnson corp. It was so obnoxious I could only sit through 30 min…yeah sorry no one wants to listen to a bunch of rich kids talk about being rich… but I guess you could afford to waste the money filming that useless snot rag of a docu.
My friend sent me this article on face book, this was my response:
I’m not familiar with the author of this artical or the reporter shes talking about, however the point she makes about cat calls having negative side effects as well as being just all sorts of disrespectful is important. The commenters appear to all be a bunch of misogynistic sympathisers quick to call the reporter a slut and mention the good old “she was asking for it”. its important also to mention that women who do complain about cat calls are not being over sensitive, they are exercising their right as people to not be harassed. I dont care what your motives cat calling is a form of sexual harassment and it’s naive to think otherwise
It boggles my mind that people are so fucking shocked and confused by trans or even gender queer people.
Yes they were born one gender and now they no longer identify with that gender (maybe they never did). Society is more excepting of people wanting to be animals then of trans people.
I understand the whole fucked up thing where a trans person isn’t honest about the transition with a partner and how that can be a big betrayal of trust. I do believe people should be open with their partners about their transitions (esp if it’s getting serious) it wouldn’t be fair not to.
But I can’t blame trans people for hiding it either, with how they are treated by society it’s no wonder they have a hard time talking about it. It is unfair to categorize them as freakish and treat them like criminals, perverts or what ever (unless aside from being trans they are also one of those things).
even if they are criminals they deserve to be treated humanely and as the gender they have transitioned to. it makes me irate to think of the trans women locked up in mens prisons and the unspeakable hell their lives must be.
everyone deserves a shot at happiness and no one has the right to deny them that.
I had a therapist once that told me that female sexuality was powerful and threatening.
Whether or not I believe this entirely I did think she had a point. There is a power to it, in many ways. To be sexually empowered is to be self empowered. I feel a strong stance on who I am at that moment, and fuck you if you think you are going to challenge that.
I can see how it could be threatening. I think a lot of the threat comes from a place of deep seeded repression. To be sexually empowered is to be a criminal, or so we are lead to believe. The sexually empowered woman is a threat to other women because she has a power that they do not. The power to see through all the repressed and censored bullshit red tape we have tightly wound around our lives from birth.
If you are not a sexually empowered woman (as I have been) it’s important to ask yourself why. Empowered doesn’t mean promiscuous necessarily or even the generic meaning of sexy really. You can be a goddess in Pumps or Docs. Size 00-20…whatever. The sexually empowered woman has no definitive shape (sometimes she wasn’t even born with a vagina)
There is this idea I’ve heard that the sexually empowered woman is threatening to society or to the proverbial “patriarchy” and maybe that’s true in some cases. Maybe a powerful and sure woman doesn’t make for a very good “insert feminine stereotype here”. Maybe she’s harder to market to because it’s not easy to make her feel inadequate and therefore persuade to buy this or that magical self fulfillment pill, powder, cream, liquid, fabric, thing. Maybe?
Maybe she likes to fuck, maybe she loves it and is not afraid to say it. So what, as long as she’s enjoying it (and being safe). Or maybe she doesn’t. Either way she deserves to be respected, we all do.
The worst thing we do to each other is act hateful! When I feel inadequate and weak I see myself looking at sexually empowered women with envy and spite, as though in order to be that I must emulate them, rather than looking within for that power. I get jealous, and I hate it. If I could only be “insert insecurity here” then I would be “insert wish here”. But you don’t get there by bringing others (or yourself) down and we won’t get anywhere as long as we are bringing each other down.
Sexuality isn’t a weapon sent to steal your self worth.
