Brilliant Beyond Words.
I didn’t notice who posted that at first but omg. PERFECTION!
I am tired of being called a shrieking harridan for pointing out inequalities so tangible and blatant that they are regularly codified into law. I am tired of being told to provide documentation of inequality in the comments sections of a website where a staff of smart women documents inequality as fast as our fingers can move. Like, you might as well write me a note on a banana peel demanding that I prove to you that bananas exist. I am tired of being asked to “cite sources” proving that sexism is real (that RAPE is real, even!), because there is no way to concisely cite decades and decades of rigorous academia. Allow me to point at the fucking library. We can’t cite “everything,” and our challengers know that. It’s an insulting diversionary tactic, it’s an attempt to drag us all backwards, and fuck it. Do your own research like the rest of the grown-ups."

So I somehow picked up two new followers in the past few days. HAI PEEPS! :D Welcome, welcome.
HAI TO THE REST OF YOU TOO~ My ask box is always open if you guys want to bullshit about anything at all. Really. ‘Cause nobody talks to me and it would be keen to chat with my fellow Tumblr denizens.
heavy trigger warnings for rape.
all right, I’ve calmed down enough to post this, and hell fuckin’ no I ain’t blurrin’ out names.
hi my name is rachael, and this is why feminism is still needed. I have nothing else to say.
yooooo if you wanna know what the fuck i was so mad about, read the following and spread it please!!
this is physically painful to read oh my fucking god
oh my fucking god, where are the torches and pitchforks???????
i have never wanted to punch people more than i have right the fuck now
Not exactly relevant to my blog, I know. But I can’t bring myself to not reblog this. Why? Because people like this fucking piss me off. I literally woke up half an hour ago and this was one of the first things I saw this morning, and now I’m going to be pissed off all day because this shit happened.
This just makes me so, so sad. ;_; I hope they were partially trying to troll her and don’t ACTUALLY think that way, but maybe that’s giving too much credit. But yes, this is why we still NEED feminism.
sometimes i have like really deep thoughts like the internet is fucking incredible man i can go on google and see like 10,000 dicks in an hour and like imagine back before the internet even, you couldn’t see that many dicks in a life time. I’ve seen more dicks this week than any Babylonian prostitute did in her entire life. Amazing.
