“I hear some of you complaining “women always say they want a nice guy.” I know lots of women — I’m even related to a few — and I can’t say I’ve ever heard any of them say that. I can’t prove it, but this sounds like one of those things stand-up comedians say about women and everyone else just repeats. I’ve also never known a woman who cries when she breaks a nail — although I’ve known a few who swear like a 15-year-old sailor in jail — and I’ve never had a woman ask me if her outfit made her look fat unless she actually wanted and subsequently appreciated my opinion. So either I’ve stumbled upon a secret trove of women who aren’t passive-aggressive sob machines, or you need to stop mistaking Dane Cook routines for peer-reviewed sociological studies.”—Lore Sjöberg, Alt Text: Taking Another Look at the Myth of the ‘Nice Guy’ (via babyspooks)
“Don’t be slutty, don’t have sex. But be sexy. If you’re too sexy though and you get raped, then that’s you’re own fault because you’re not actually supposed to listen to us about being sexy, even though we tell you your value is derived from how sexy you are. If you get into a position of power, we will assume that you used your sex appeal to get there and not your brains and we will mock you even though we told you the only thing that mattered was your sex appeal. Make yourself accessible to me, but holy shit stop being so desperate and needy. Don’t be a tease. If we want to have sex with you, don’t friendzone us, even though we just fucking told you not to have sex.”—patriarchy proverb (via uoa)
1) Watch your weight and appearance very carefully because we have a very simple and uncontrollably powerful algorithm in our brains that renders us less likely to commit to you with each additional pound of weight you gain. Once you’re over a BMI of about 22, the vast…
emotional abuse is when someone does something to hurt you, and when you express your feelings, that you’re upset, they turn it around to be something you did to hurt them and they force you to apologize for it, and your feelings, like always, are rendered invalid and silenced, forever damaging the ability to trust others with your feelings because they always are used against you.
Battered women are morally entitled to kill their abusive partners, even those who are passed out or asleep, says respected University of Ottawa law professor Elizabeth Sheehy. She raises the provocative idea in her new book, Defending Battered Women on Trial, to be published Dec. 15.

I love her already
“This gives any woman carte blanche to murder a man and get away with it scott free if she can “prove” she was abused. Keep in mind, men cannot use this same defense.
You’re a proponent of ‘one of us is special, but equal’ justice systems and it’s frightening.”
when i was in 7th grade i asked my science teacher if there were other colors that existed and we just couldn’t see them and she said no but i couldn’t stop thinking “well how would we know anyway” and that’s how i had an existential crisis at the age of 12
if you give kids zero restrictions they’ll become the nicest fucking kids ever who never do drugs or get into trouble i know because my parents let me do nothing but eat chicken nuggets all day and read hentai until 4am and i am a straight A student
Seriously though this seems to be the case with a ton of people I know, if you don’t restrict them all the time they actually do better and are mentally healthier
nobody in college gives a shit ive seen peope walking to class in heavy snow in sweats and a tshirt and flip flops ive seen people wear studio headphones in lecture ive heard so many professors curse its really some next level shit and high school did not prepare me for it
I was not prepared for university particularly this one lecturer that would slip in a photograph of fisting into presentations to check we were paying attention
I am so fucking angry and ashamed of the Australian government today. Not only have they revoked our same sex marriage rights they will go ahead and annul the 15 beautiful couples who married last week. Absolutely disgusting. Same sex marriage is a human right.
approaching this situation with anger and sarcasm isnt gonna wanna make ANYONE follow you, no matter what your point is. be calm with your words and keep reminding everyone about the huge problem in australia. i think that will get more people to listen!
you tell all the families of indigenous australians that have died in police custody in the past 10 years due to excessive force or due to being left in the back of a fucking 40 degree celsius van to remain calm and tell their oppressors patiently about what they’re doing while they still repeatedly do it over and over
you tell all the children who lost their families and were raped and abused during the stolen generation to remain calm and to tell their oppressors and abusers patiently about what they’re doing wrong while they continue to do it right in your face
you tell all the indigenous australians that have significantly less employment opportunities and have to rely on unemployment checks from centrelink (half of which is taken away from them and designated to specific places REGARDLESS of whether or not they have an addiction - and this is only for indigenous people, non-indigenous people on unemployment checks don’t get half their money taken) to remain calm and patiently tell their oppressors what they’re doing wrong
you tell all the indigenous australians that are constantly spat at for being lazy but have to go to 47% more job interviews than non-indigenous australians to land a job despite having the same qualifications to remain calm
you tell all the indigenous australians in the northern territory whose unemployment and drug addiction and alcoholism and poverty the government is making money off of to remain calm
you tell all the indigenous australians that are stuck overrepresented in our australians prisons because of a racist fucking criminal justice system to remain calm
you tell all the indigenous australian youths who are stuck in a cycle of poverty and alcoholism and drug addiction because of white people to remain calm
you can try to tell me to remain calm but i was raised by my full indigenous australian grandfather who had to retire at age 40 because of a racial attack in his workplace where they broke his back and keyed “c**n” into his car, you can try to tell me to remain calm but my best friends dad spat in my face when i told him i was on an indigenous australian uni scholarship because i was “wasting government money”, you can tell me to remain calm but my great grandmother went to her grave telling people she was afghan and not indigenous australian because white people shamed her into it
no thank you and you can unfollow me too i don’t care for you either
anger is good i have a Big Fire in my belly and people like you aren’t going to stop me
"I’m so co…." I spot a dad smiling in the distance. I think for a second. "my name is cold,” I say instead. suddenly the dad explodes and there is no more joking now. I sit on my throne of dead fathers for the rest of time
