instead of watching the 50 Shades trailer, why not just make awkward eye contact with a total stranger at the grocery store for a solid 2 minutes and 34 seconds? you get the same skin-crawling, uncomfortable feeling but without the shitty writing, terrible acting and massive dose of rape culture

PSA: Big corporations putting feel good feminist messages in their advertisements wont result in women’s liberation as much as it will result in goading liberal minded folks to buy more shampoo or whatever. There’s no point in fawning over these commercials.

honestly can’t wait for the 50 shades movie to normalize the manipulation of lower-level female employees.  can’t wait for the new wave of “consent is sexy” banners on the cover of cosmo.  can’t wait for teen girls to think that a controlling relationship is romantic.  can’t wait for sexualized violence to become increasingly mainstream.  and most of all, i can’t wait for bdsm to be labeled a feminist revolution

I mean that last part has already happened tho.

yes tell me more about how watching a video called “teen slut gets ass fucked by man” doesn’t make you hate women, tell me more about how watching a video called “nasty whore gets what’s coming for her” doesn’t contribute to rape culture or alter your views on consent. tell me more about how porn doesn’t objectify, degrade and commodify women’s bodies when the only people in hetero porn getting physically and verbally abused are the women.

And they’re shown liking it. Don’t forget that part. In porn, women respond positively to all of the degradation and aggression. But I’m sure this doesn’t alter anyone’s perceptions of women whatsoever.

Anonymous asked: I don't know who Ayn Rand is. Should I change that or just let it lie?

raptorific:

Imagine the baby that would result from a night of passion between Ebenezer Scrooge (before the spirits changed his ways) and Mr. Krabs from Spongebob. Now imagine that baby grew up and married the baby that would result from a night of passion between Yzma from the Emperor’s New Groove and Mr. Burns from the Simpsons. Now imagine the newlyweds had a baby of their own, and that baby was raised aboard a Ferengi Starship, where she was tutored in empathy and compassion by Lord Voldemort. Now imagine that baby grew up and someone told her that any opinions she might have or conclusions she might reach are based on objective logic and reason, and that anyone who disagrees with her is simply being irrational. Now multiply that person’s greed and heartlessness by 100 and you’ll begin to see something that comes close to resembling Ayn Rand.

Everything Elliot did is perfectly justified. … I am the next Elliot Rodger and guess what I’ll do the right thing this time.

I’ll make sure I only kill women

The first shooter wasn’t white (but yes, he was a white supremacist) and y’all talked about was white male violence

This shooter isn’t white and y’all can’t even front like he is this time

Please stop giving men of color a pass for perpetuating violence against women

Please stop acting like only “crazy white boys” have guns

This shit is just gonna keep happening and we cannot ignore it

Black Trans Women & Street Harassment:

Conversations on Street Harassment often exclude Black Trans Women because we don’t view them as women& we see their bodies as inherently deserving of violence. We tend to see street harassment of trans women, not as gender based systematic violence, but as non-existent or inexplainable & unavoidable tragedy.

Anonymous asked: hey, here's an idea: maybe she lied about him raping her because she's UNSTABLE AND WANTS HIS MONEY! youre a fucking idiot

Ah yes, I forgot about the lucrative “sue your rapist” option for women. I’ve heard many women become millionaires by suing bullshit indie “rockstars” for their massive amounts of money claiming they raped them. This is totally how our society works. You figured it out, douchebag anon.
