Rachel Tietz is a whore

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.

Feminism, because you wouldn’t want it to happen to your sister, would you?

Or, really, any woman you know because women are people and not just walking vaginas (shocker, I know)

How Porn Creates The John: Porn, Trafficking & the Social Construction of Masculinity with Ph.D Gail Dines

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."

Really and truly dedicated to my sisters CC and Rebo

Just because society is shitty and doesn’t teach you to inherently respect your agency doesn’t mean I won’t support yours…

"If you say that a woman wearing revealing clothes deserves to be sexually assaulted, you are saying that a woman’s body is inherently deserving of rape. That women are inherently deserving of rape. That women have to make sure their body is hidden in order not to deserve to be raped. That is misogyny in its purest form."
I don’t get how some people can treat their fellow humans

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!
  • PATRIARCHY!

C’mon people…

"The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."

How fucked up is it that women in America have been able to vote for less than 100 years?

Violence Against Women Act Passes House 286-138

I’m glad that this finally passed.

But it says a lot about House Republicans that stopping violence against women is still a contentious, debatable, issue in 2013

Come on guys, get it together.

Hey, Seth MacFarlane

Saying that you think a black woman is hot, doesn’t make you not-a-racist, or not-a-misogynist.

It just makes you an asshole.

Despite protests around Europe- in London, Berlin, Barcelona, Dublin, and Belgrade, and despite support from musicians all over the world like Madonna and Paul McCartney, as of 9:56 Eastern Time, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alekhina, and Yekaterina Samutsevich, of the band Pussy Riot have been found guilty of “Hooliganism, aimed at inciting religious hatred” by a Russian court.

The Judge chastised the women for “openly displaying disrespect…towards all Orthodox Christians”, “violating the common rules of behavior of the cathedral”, and that the “jerking of limbs” during their performance was “further proof of hatred towards Christians.”

They have each been sentenced to two years in prison.

Outside the courthouse, hundreds of people dressed in Pussy Riot’s trademark neon balaclavas protested, even though many of them are apparently being arrested or detained by police, and girls no older than 16 are also being dragged away by police.

Gary Kasparov, the former World Chess Champion, was also arrested by police for protesting outside the Courthouse (see above, being led into, and inside a police van)

People have so often been noting the similarities of this trial with show trials of the old Soviet Union. While there are many, I think the most obvious changes from the old days are the fact that there are open protests going on, both in support of, and in opposition to the Pussy Riot verdict; and that the entire world is watching.

It would have been unthinkable, forty years ago, for their to be American, or British, or even Russian news coverage of what amounts to a show trial. The difference now is that the world can see just how unjust and corrupt the Russian justice system really is.
