a sense of wasted tenderness

"People who dismiss the unemployed and dependent as ‘parasites’ fail to understand economics and parasitism. A successful parasite is one that is not recognized by its host, one that can make its host work for it without appearing as a burden. Such is a ruling class in a capitalist society."

What if this post was a picture of some fictional creature with an oblong face, and the text beneath it implied that the creature was popular British actor Benedict Cumberbatch? Would that not be very, very funny?

Anti-SJ Proverb (via antisjproverbs)

Well, if you’re preaching your ideas to people in a rude and aggressive way then I’m pretty sure they’re not going to listen, be it equality or not.

(via icanonlyprime)

This from the people constantly policing everyone else’s language for what they deem offensive content. And who actively break the law IRL trying to stop people saying things they deem unacceptable. Oh, and accuse people wanting to go to those talks of supporting incest and rape and calling them “fucking scum”. Yeah, it’s the SJWs who clearly have the moral high ground here.

Of course, one of the biggest criticisms of SJWs is that they’re not actually about equality and solving problems, they’re about yelling at people and feeling superior. This is like saying that people who criticize feminism are against “progress”, when most criticisms of feminism are that it’s not progressive enough. It’s a strawman, plain and simple.

Thousands of Tumblr users have been misled by a post suggesting that an unidentified elementary school girl was battered and sexually assaulted by her classmates only to have authorities excuse it as “rough housing”. This story is awful and provokes anger amongst its readers, as it should. However it’s a LIE

This article smelled “off” when I read it because it clearly stated that the mother withheld her daughter’s name to save her from humiliation. Which made the photo of the girl seem off. Why hide her name if you’ll show her face? That’s because this isn’t an article on CNN like the post suggests and that little girl isn’t a sexual assault victim. You’re looking at a photo of Makayla McEvoy. She was 7 when this photo was taken in 2012 after she survived a Kangaroo attack.

Little miss McEvoy is an Australian animal attack survivor. She is NOT an American rape victim from Georgia (thank God)

The artificial news story was fabricated by a Tumblr user called dropmycumberbritches (who now goes by vegetableighs since handing the account off to someone else to avoid heat) After posting the artificial story to raise awareness to Rape Culture, the Tumblr user then celebrated and sang their own praise. Luckily another Tumble user, untrue-posts, found the article, did some digging and reblogged the initial post with the real info.

However, the original post is still picking up speed and is sitting comfortably at 20k+ posts. Please, spread this news and let everyone know that there is not a Georgian rape victim going uncared for. Instead, there’s a poor Australian girl who was attacked by a Kangaroo in 2012 who recovered, only to have her face used for some else’s agenda.


The internet just changed: Net Neutrality is dead. →








Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee. [1] The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.

We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.

We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. [2]

This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

The Normalisation of Slamming Richard Dawkins →


The main problem I have about people slamming Dawkins is that most of what they say is trumped-up gibberish that they’ve put no effort at all into parsing for accuracy.

They just see a guy who they imagine to be imperious and delight in taking him down a peg. Which I’m all in favour of, but I’ll try not to lie to make it happen.

man i wish homophobic people were actually AFRAID of gay people like could you imagine having the power to strike fear in peoples hearts with your homo

"If I do not have one trazillion dollars on my doorstep by noon tomorrow, I swear I will KISS THIS WOMAN on the MOUTH in front of your children.”

Yeah, but then gay people would just get shot by police because they felt threatened.

A major problem with Oppression Olympics, for me, is that it undermines the drive for effective activism.

Feminists have an incentive to not significantly reduce rape statistics, because they like to have a dramatic number to shout at people (indeed, they often make such numbers up, and then complain that women are scared).

MRAs might be reluctant to solve all men’s issues, because they know the moment they do they’ll be attacked by the “misandry don’t real” brigade and not have anything to defend themselves with.

The group with the most unsolved issues wins, and so groups who solve their issues get punished and treated like they never had any in the first place. This sort of competition is poisonous, because if people are starting to invent problems which don’t exist to win, you can be sure they’ll be hesitant to solve the ones which do. No wonder real activism is so rare in this community.
