“You mean the generation that paid three times as much for college to enter a job market with triple the unemployment isn’t interested in purchasing the assets of the generation who just blew an enormous housing bubble and kept it from popping through quantitative easing and out-and-out federal support? Curious.”

|what you said was:
||"i don't respect women who don't respect themselves"
|what you meant was:
||"i and society as a whole hold women up to ridiculous respectability standards directly relating to the "purity" of said women while hypersexualizing them at the same time and if you are a woman and don't fit my awkward monolith of criteria then i refuse to acknowledge your humanity"
|what i heard was:
||"hi i'm a misogynist piece of shit, please punch me in my face"

Drinking beer and…
watching the Farrah Abraham sex tape. For work.
No, really, this is writing related.
Notes so far:
Farrah seems SO YOUNG and it makes me kind of uncomfortable.
James Deen has a great cock. I know, I know, we all know.
Blah blah blah, I need more beer to make this more interesting.
She seems to actually be sincere for a good chunk of it, which is actually hot. This is in passing moments and not consistent throughout the film.
Um, I want James Deen to stick his face in my cunt. (Is that creepy to say? It might be creepy. Am I creepy? I’m watching a porn and this is the point of porn, so it can’t be creepy. Can it?)
CUM IN YOUR EYES IS PAINFUL. POOR YOUNG LADY.
That is all.

Quite often, when faced with an angry personality, spurred on by our refusal to take mistreatment from anonymous Readers, we’re met with the word “bitter”. Bitter seems, primarily, to be a word used to insult women. In our case, it is as if the writer is saying, “You’re a malcontent. Your job has jaded you. You’re unable to deal with others and show them the respect they deserve as people, as allies, as human beings. You should answer all questions. You should treat everyone with respect. You should be kind to all the people who come here.”
Without repeating our “GTFO” answer to the previous “I’m unfollowing” ask, I will say this: It is too often sex workers are faced with disrespect and expected to be kind and demure in the face of it. It is too often we are mistreated while the very individual mistreating us demands kindness from us. It is too often people who identify as allies or parties interested in our well-being are the exact same people mistreating us because their feelings are hurt, because we used profanity, because we refuse 101, because we choose not to share tragedy and/or, all of the above at once.

“Swear to God, I can’t stand to hear a woman claim that she thinks like a guy and hates women because they’re all catty. That’s misogyny. The very fact that you, as a woman, think differently than how a socially-stereotyped woman is supposed to think is proof that our gender “norms” are fucking us over. Women are not all alike. Some of us like football. Some of us like talking on the phone. Some of us like religion. Some of us are emotional. Some of us speak three languages. Some of us have boyfriends. Some of us have girlfriends. Some of us wear lipstick. Some of us don’t shave our pits. Some of us have kids. Some of us worry we’ll drop our best friend’s baby. Now please stop claiming that you don’t act like a woman. It doesn’t make you a special fucking snowflake. It makes you a perpetrator of misogyny.”

I’m guilty of this. All my life I’ve said I don’t hang out with women for stupid misogynist reasons. I’m working on myself tho, I see the error. (via beam-meh-up-scotty)

Soy fe@ y content@: "Can you not hate me for 5 minutes?" - Communal Care Skill
I came up with this phrase once while hanging out with a close friend of mine and I was feeling like shit. The usual I-Hate-Myself feelings came up and I remember asking them, “Can you not hate me for 5 minutes?”
What that meant…

ten photos from my series project unbreakable that remind me every day why i do this work and why i will never stop:
because it is our duty as humans to lessen the suffering of others, and if we can take a moment to bear witness to these words, we are able to carry the weight of them just a little bit.
project unbreakable is a series created in october 2011 featuring photos of sexual assault survivors holding quotes from their attacker, quotes from their friends/family regarding the abuse, or statements from themselves regarding the abuse.
