Summer 2016: Republicans think their daughters will get "groped by men" in Target bathrooms.
Fall 2016: Republicans vote for a man who brags about groping women.
okay but watching the latest Trump meltdown is amazing since one of the primary defenses I’ve heard of his behavior is “all guys have said stuff like that”. after several years of “not all men” every time we try to talk about sexual harassment. suddenly it is, in fact, all men. that is some kermit-drinking-tea level cognitive dissonance. thank you and good night.
“Not all men” I say, “there is but one who is purely good.” But which man am I referring to? In Iceland, deep in the woods and the snow, there lives a lad raised by wolves who feasts upon sunbeams and loves all of nature, unburdened by man’s sins. Tenderly, he strokes a hungry squirrel, sharing with her the last acorns of the autumn harvest. A tear rolls down his cheek. Who is he
"i'm a Nice Guy. i dont do that" ok but do you stand up against men who do? or sit there and watch while u think about how nice you are
if a person of color is telling you that you’re being racist you need to recognize it and apologize. if a gay/bisexual person is telling you that you’re being homophobic/biphobic you need to recognize it and apologize. if a transgender person is telling you that you’re being transphobic, recognize it and apologize. if a woman is telling you you’re being sexist, recognize it and apologize. the line is not yours to be drawn.
satire is “I’m going to take this concept to an extreme or absurd level in order to demonstrate how bizarre/nonsensical/illogical it is” and not “I said something bigoted but just kidding I didn’t really mean it hahaha”
When someone is a Christian they are not constantly asked their position on the holocaust, the transatlantic slave trade, the extermination of Native Americans or any of the thousands of atrocities committed by Christians.
you shouldn’t have to reveal some deeply personal thing about yourself, especially if it somehow affects your safety, just so that people will listen to you and stop treating you like shit
Talking about race, there are definitely some white people who don’t like that. And it’s not even always the content, it’s just saying: ‘white people.’ Because a lot of white people are not used to being called white. They get to be “people,” “human beings,” their first name. … The rest of us, we’ve had to get used to being the Other. We’ve had to get used to constantly answering those questions. We’ve been required to stand up for ourselves and to force ourselves into the spotlight because no one’s going to give it to us.
Men will say confidence is the sexiest thing about a woman..until that woman stands up for herself, until that woman has her own opinions, until that woman doesn’t need your compliments to make herself feel beautiful
