found this gem in the 1996 Cornell Women’s Handbook. it’s what to say when a guy tries to get out of using a condom
"Telling a young girl she can’t wear what she wants because it’s not appropriate encourages the idea that men’s reactions should dictate society’s norms, and that all women are meta-Eves, tempting and ensnaring men with our sultry-eyed gaze. My parents’ culture is steeped in patriarchy, in the philosophy of the one-step machismo machine, where there is just one kind of man, and two kinds of women: the angel and the whore. These limited ideas of masculinity breed men who want ownership of women."
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
this gives me hope.
matilda continues to give me life
bottom line, whether you agree or disagree with the practice of BDSM, it’s a choice made between two consenting adults, 50 shades doesn’t show two equal mature adults making informed decisions about their sex lives, it shows a young woman who’s never even been kissed, in the…

Tumblr got anxiety advice. Fuck yeah.
Read this earlier, and it helped me a lot tonight.
(No, you aren’t wrong.
People don’t seem to realize that this is completely unacceptable behaviour. And not to mention a completely rude thing to say to someone who tells you something like this. You can be having a bad time, but just because someone tells you that someone else has it worse, it doesn’t mean that your troubles will automatically disappear. There will always be people who have it worse, or better, or about the same. This does not mean that your problems don’t matter anymore, or should be taken less seriously. If anything, it shows us that everyone has problems and we should all be helping each other out.
Sea Bear equates it to when you ask to go to the bathroom in class, and your teacher tells you that someone else already went. Does that mean you don’t have to go anymore? No. )

I saw this on twitter. This is beautiful.
It’s not beautiful, it’s stupid and degrading! NOBODY should use either!
Shut your dumb ass up.
Always that one person ^^ lmao.
Here let me make it two. IT is stupid and degrading. Nobody should be using either, but your stupid asses just can’t think of a better word to use now can you?
White folks always tryna police what the fuck we say. And then you got these Uncle Tom ass niggas wanting to join in and tap dance for to impress your white “pals”. All y’all can kiss my black ass. It’s sociology 101. Simple shit. I grew around Mexicans my whole life and they used to call each other beaners. You know what would happen if I called one of homies a beaner? I’d get my face sliced up. It’s called cultural relativism, assholes. You take the culture for what it is and you RESPECT THE BOUNDARIES OF SAID CULTURE. Now all y’all shut the fuck up.
