elizabethdeloria: I cannot even BEGIN to tell you how fucking offended I am by this. Male gamers would have to write an essay, answer questions that test their knowledge, create something with purpose. But females? Oh no, their looks and sex appeal are clearly what we value them with as human beings and gamers and clearly define who deserves to go to E3. Seriously, what the fuck were they...
Los Angeles Eliminates Rape Kit Backlog →
cocoku: “Thanks to to activists, private donors, and public grants, the LAPD has tested all 6,132 unexamined rape kits in its storage freezers. So far, new identifications number in “the dozens”; some of the 1,000 matches were already convicted.” It just goes to show; effort is not futile.
We’ve begun to raise daughters more like sons… but few have the courage to raise...– Gloria Steinem (via fuckyeahfeministartandliterature)
Do you think that your 16 year old daughter hasn’t masturbated already? Like, do...– Kevin Smith (director) on the ridiculousness of movies about sex receiving NC-17 ratings while extremely violent movies get by with R ratings (via phillip-gallagher) I like him even more now.

Dealing with straight/white/male privilege →
punctuatedlife: There is nothing wrong with being a straight white male. But if you are, you might feel a twinge of guilt as you start to learn about your privilege. Don’t let that guilt shut you down. Here are some specific things you can do to take your understanding to the next level. First, understand that you are not being persecuted. No one is trying to make you feel guilty. In other...

What is your opinion on female submission in the... →
andythenerd: It’s supposed to be a predominantly sex-based decision, but sometimes the lines get muddied, etc. I’ve never practiced BDSM, but my understanding of it is that it is an entirely sex-based decision between consenting adults who have carefully laid out boundaries, safe words, etc. I don’t think that in true BDSM the lines between society and sex are blurred at all, especially...

allypopx: Girls, if you really believe this, I am sad for you. Date better men. Boys, if you really believe this, do everyone a favor and get a vasectomy. Don’t get involved with people who don’t respect you. They aren’t worth your time.
derailingthebeautymyth: “How wrong it is for a woman to expect the man to build the world she wants, rather than create it herself” -Anais Nin The answer to that is very very complex. A thought provoking quote but I’m not sure if I agree with the point I think it’s trying to make.
Feminism ain’t about equality, it’s about reprieve — Ani Difranco (maybe you posted this once before, but I just started following you and I love that quote.)
B. ISHII: B. Ishii's guide to not getting raped →
b-ishii: First of all, I would like to say that I would never approve of a rapist. I would never tell a woman what she cannot wear, or what she should wear to avoid rape. I would never blame a woman for her rape, however you need to be street smart. There are criminals in the world and there’s nothing you… The problem with your answer firstly is: It’s a bandaid measure- and one...

livelaughawesome: And McDonald’s only focuses on fast food instead of pizza. And Payless only focuses on shoes instead of pants. And Baskin Robbins only focuses on ice cream instead of popsicles. Do you know why? Because you can find pizza, and pants, and popsicles somewhere else. It doesn’t mean that…
Anti-feminists = people who don't know what...
dionthesocialist: Oh, and good ol’ sexists. Can’t forget about the sexists.
Being a feminist doesn’t mean suddenly no longer liking problematic...– sabrina_il
Additionally, in lesbian culture several common slang terms used are “carpet munching”, “giving lip”, “lip service” or “tipping the velvet” (a faux-“Victorian” expression invented by novelist Sarah Waters). Thats it, I’m using nothing but the term ‘tipping the velvet’ from now on.
cunnilingus // history
I’m wondering how common cunnilingus was through history in various parts of the world. Blow jobs have been around for what seems like forever but there are very few references to cunnilingus that I can find.
If divorce has increased by one thousand percent, don’t blame the women’s...– Betty Friedan (via doll-flesh)
