Women are tired of being judged by the Esquire metric.
Instead, I’ve been thinking about an anecdote in Tina Fey’s Bossypants. Amy Poehler, then new to “Saturday Night Live,” was engaging in some loud and unladylike vulgarity in the writers’ room when the show’s then-star Jimmy Fallon jokingly told her to cut it out, saying, “It’s not cute! I don’t like it!” In Fey’s retelling, Poehler “went black in the eyes for a second, and wheeled around on him,” forcefully informing him: “I don’t fucking care if you like it.”

Many species have mating displays. Why is ours so often violent?
So Khazikstan, Iran, Venezuela, SOMALIA, India, China, Libya, Turkey, Cuba, Chile, Iceland, The Congo, Madagascar, Mongolia, Malta, Algeria and Indonesia can have paid maternal leave, but it’s too socialist/ anti-capitalist for us free, safe, happy Americans.

See though, the very fact that you’ve called her a “whore” in an attempt to shame her (and by extension me) into silence for simply speaking out about the fact that NO MEANS NO IN ANY CONTEXT shows that her speech and my support is still necessary.
Whether sexual or general, your condemnation of her use of the word “no” and your attempt to silence/ shame her is just proof that women like her and men like me should continue to speak out against and rightly demonize you about your trogloditical, backwards, misogynistic attitude.
I hope you die in a fire.
Or, why I get really disapointed when my friends talk about rape, etc., as being “human nature,” but then putting the emphasis on women for controlling those urges
I swear that there’s one guy in my Women In The World class who just took it so he could be an asshole for a semester.
"But women in the past had it so good- they just had to cook and clean and not worry about anything."
I don’t get enough angry anons anymore…I miss arguing with them.
Maybe I’m not baiting enough people?
Maybe I should do a pick-a-topic thing to fight with me about:
- People with IQ’s less than 100 shouldn’t be allowed to reproduce
- All firearms should be banned for civilian use
- Anything Israel has done in regards to Palestinian people/ a Palestinian state ever
- How Palestinian people are also kind of ridiculous sometimes
- People who are against e-books or file sharing because “scary future things”
- Regardless of their actions, the Nazi’s had really snazzy uniforms
- Conspiracy theories!
How fucked up is it that women in America have been able to vote for less than 100 years?
these are the best string of messages i’ve ever gotten on tumblr
I’m re-blogging this mostly for my friend Jiffy, who doesn’t see enough “reptilian” paranoid conspiracy theories on my blog.
