    When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?

    Hint: It has something to do with people feeling entitled to making any woman their personal porn, even if it violates or humiliates her in the process.

    This kid throws huge parties and has date raped over 3 of my friends. Of course his families super rich so nobody says anything. He posts super misogynistic and ignorant tweets and I finally said something… This is what I get in return.

    Leaking nudes is a form of sexual assault
    Accessing and spreading a woman’s private images without her consent is a form of sexual assault

    bathroom-cleaner: I read your response to why feminism is viewed as a "women's power over men" type thing and it's been one of the most enlightening I've seen by far. But don't you think that one of the biggest reasons it's confused is because its relation to the word "feminine"? Ignorant people refuse to get behind feminism just because the name sounds like what we would call "misandry". I would love to hear what you have to say on the matter


    I think people do have that misconception and that that misconception makes them not want to identify as feminist if that’s what they think feminism means. 

    But really, I think that it’s patriarchy, not feminism, that causes that misconception. Patriarchy is a system of control, so when people hear that feminism is fighting against patriarchy, they assume that they’re basically the same type of words, just with a different gender in charge. 

    My point is that that kind of thinking is patriarchal. It’s dominant, oppressive, aggressive, etc. 

    We need to be clear that Feminism is not the opposite of Patriarchy. It does not replace the patriarchy by trading one oppression for another, but rather works to dismantle the systems of oppression all together by lifting up those who have been oppressed to a state of freedom, autonomy, and mutual respect.

  7. "Don’t take a nude pic if you’re a famous woman and don’t want it leaked."


    "Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."

    "Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."

    "Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."

    "Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."

    Victim blaming 101: Everyone should live in fear from ever doing anything.

  9. "I’m also a killer. I’ve killed a lot, and if I need to I’ll kill a whole bunch more. If you don’t want to get killed, don’t show up in front of me."
    Actual quote from Ferguson “law enforcement” officer and 35-year police veteran, Dan Page. But hey, let’s keep focusing on all those unreasonable “looters and rioters” (via staininyourbrain)

  11. Ancaps call themselves “the state’s greatest enemy” but don’t have to worry about having their propagandist sites on a list or having their personal friend groups infiltrated by undercover cops for no reason other than to gain information without any real reason or cause lmao

    Anonymous: I don't like how fat girls are putting down thin women. It's not right to make yourself feel better about your weight by degrading someone else's. I think it's really hurtful.


    as dadsworstnightmare: said

    if you feel personally attacked by nicki minaj’s comments on yr skinniness please go turn on the tv and see all the girls with yr body type modelling clothing & hosting tv shows & acting in major films to make yourself feel better……..

    as thagal: said

    it’s annoying because skinny girls never ride for thick or fat girls EVER, never reblog pictures of them or mention shit bout body positivity and uplifting the spirits of thick and fat girls like I never see y’all advocating for curves and extra fat on the thighs or hips or anything but when Nicki goes “Fuck skinny bitches” y’all are suddenly activists for self-image and body positivity? get gone you fakes and liars. Fuck all y’all

    as unfriendlyindianhottie: said

    until skinny is used as an insult and a derogatory term like fat is, and not as a compliment and as a casting call or a societal requirement for what is”normal” and “beautiful”,i think us skinny bitches better keep our mouth shut and stay out the motherfucking club 

    and finally, as me, blackfemalepresident says:

    go cry to another thin girl about it if you want sympathy cause this one aint got time for “but fat girls should think about ME for a second!” nonsense
