when someone asks me why i’m not a feminist I think i’ll just show them this

You’re going to show them a lazy attempt at satire? Alright dude

you know this is satire? can you prove that?

The twitter account started with that incendiary post and only posted a handful of similarly related things within the same time period. It also retweeted from other blogs that posted only in that same time period. The username uses the term ‘womyn’, a term which only a very few members of the feminist community actually use (more often, it’s used to make fun of them). Then there’s the fact that the tweets happened at the exact same time that 4chan was trying to make people believe that ‘freebleeding’ is a thing. 
Also, do you notice that both blogs use what appear to be stock photos? Let’s reverse image search that:

It looks like someone used the profile picture of this woman (notice that’s how she spells the word in her bio, btw) to make a lazy strawman, doesn’t it?

Yeah, freebleeding is a thing. Maybe you don’t shit on other people who can and want to free bleed just because 4chan is involved and you want to make a point. Way to go into “Oh no we are not those gross hairy lesbian feminists” territory. I gathered some information, but since free bleeding is not a thing I don’t expect you to read it. I’m sure I’m just one of that trolls from 4chan right?

Personally I’m aware that freebleeding is a thing, it’s just been heavily exaggerated by 4chan. And when you combine that with everything else that geekstuffandranting pointed out, the tweet kinda screams troll. I don’t personally give a shit about freebleeding so long as people stay sanitary in public spaces (which most actual freebleeders seem to do), but that doesn’t make this tweet any less ridiculous.
ETA: I guess I was just making an unconscious distinction between 4chan’s idea of freebleeding (carelessly bleeding on everything in public, subjecting everyone else to their bodily fluids) vs actual freebleeding, so I didn’t really see the problem. But I should have thought it through before I reblogged it, and I do apologize for that.

How can you tell between trolls who just egg you on and waste your time and genuinely curious ppl wanting to raise a point?

The thing about making fun of triggers is that, like, you don’t know the environment the person suffering w/ PTSD or whatever was in at the time of their trauma. The strangest things trigger me. Of course CSA and rape and all sorts of things factor into this. They’re the big ones that obviously draw my attention back to “reliving” and kinda pushing me into an episode. But you know what else triggers me?

  • Seeing kids hugging their pet Boxer terriers
  • Black and white world war II movies
  • I’ve been consistently triggered by depictions of nieces and uncles doing benign things in anything. I once had a panic attack in a Comparative Politics class because there was a scene in Persepolis between the character and her uncle. It doesn’t matter if you tell me nothing happens. You know where my mind goes? “She’s going to get hurt. Get her out of that room. Why is there no one else around? Why are her parents trusting this man?”
  • Queen and Rush, sometimes, my abuser’s favorite bands. 
  • Certain kinds of trucks.
  • Silly things. Hollister hoodies with fur hoods, a very specific kind of MP3 player, eating rice in bed.
  • Smells that I don’t even have words for will trigger me.

And it’s a spiral. And it’s just. Bad? Survivors ask me to trigger warn things and I never look at it as “Oh, that’s silly. There’s no triggering content IN that.” Instead my head immediately starts building the fear that person must have felt and it’s just like. Idk. It hurts.

Don’t make fun of weird triggers.

"Like most women, I currently live in a society where violence, harassment and scary shit can break out at any moment, just because I told some random asshole “no” without bothering to be nice about it. Doing that is so dangerous that most women don’t dare; after a few scary incidents, they learn to make up excuses, to smile, to be sweet and welcoming, to act as if every single random asshole on the street is a precious new friend that they would just LOVE to stand outside of the Chipotle and chat with FOR HOURS, if only cruel fate had not intervened. That’s what it’s actually like, being a woman: Playing nice with every random asshole, because this random asshole might be the one who hurts you. And then, if he hurts you anyway, they’ll tell you that you led him on."

  • fandom please I implore you all to talk about Dean Thomas more
  • literally yelling for a red card during a Quidditch match
  • painting a potter for president banner for his friend HOW CUTE
  • offering to forge a signature so that same friend could go to the village with the rest of them
  • actually he paints banners supporting Harry on two separate occasions four years apart 
  • is it weirder that he keeps doing that or that Harry keeps getting himself into situations where he requires banners
  • good with a quill be still my beating heart the boy is an artist
  • literally not giving a single fuck that their teacher was a “dangerous half-breed” because he respected the hell out of him as a person and educator
  • IF YOU MEAN PROFESSOR LUPIN, HE WAS THE BEST WE EVER - 
  • and he grew up as a muggle so he had already been exposed to werewolf folklore and he had every excuse to be afraid or prejudiced and instead decided to judge him on a human level, even without the familiarity the trio etc. had to him
  • standing up for that same teacher time and time again
  • including to a ministry official who he just generally gave the sass to anyway
  • never losing his faith in Harry even when his very best friend in the whole world and approximately 89% of the wizarding community basically thought the bloke was a nutjob
  • convincing his best mate to join DA 
  • there was a fair bit of an anti-dean sentiment in HBP best to ignore that then
  • never having any animosity towards his friend for getting together with his ex-girlfriend so soon
  • completely supporting and defending Harry while on the run because OBVIOUSLY why stop now after seven years of doing literally that at every single opportunity
  • being completely bemused by but always kind towards Luna
  • helping to dig the grave on the beach
  • running out into the final battle without a fucking wand 
  • evidently winning one at some point
  • everything to do with him and Seamus however you want to view their relationship but frankly I could do a whole other post on that
  • also I met Alfie once and he was so pretty
  • dEAN THOMAS

I don't know who Ayn Rand is. Should I change that or just let it lie?

raptorific:

Imagine the baby that would result from a night of passion between Ebenezer Scrooge (before the spirits changed his ways) and Mr. Krabs from Spongebob. Now imagine that movie grew up and married the baby that would result from a night of passion between Yzma from the Emperor’s New Groove and Mr. Burns from the Simpsons. Now imagine the newlyweds had a baby of their own, and that baby was raised aboard a Ferengi Starship, where she was tutored in empathy and compassion by Lord Voldemort. Now imagine that baby grew up and someone told her that any opinions she might have or conclusions she might reach are based on objective logic and reason, and that anyone who disagrees with her is simply being irrational. Now multiply that person’s greed and heartlessness by 100 and you’ll begin to see something that comes close to resembling Ayn Rand.

So you know how pro lifers are always bastardizing the work of Dr Seuss? Well a lovely person who wishes to remain anonymous decided to write a little Seuss style poem all about pro lifers…

Dr Seuss poems aren’t about abortion
This idea is a gross distortion
Dr Seuss was a prochoice hero 
His prolife convictions all at zero

Now there’s bound to be prolife scoffers
But Dr Seuss money ends up in Planned Parenthood coffers
His widow donates yearly to the prochoice cause
And sues antichoicers under copyright clause

Prolifers steal for their own reasons
No matter the time, no matter the seasons
Whether Japanese occupation or Jewish slaughter
Their lack of real cause will bring you to laughter

The lives of a fetus is all that has worth
A person’s a person until given birth
Then they go to the rank of scum
Until it’s their turn “dad” or “mum”

Prolife agenda is all about lies
Of big honking disproportionate size 
Ignoring a person in favor of a fetus
But we are strong, they’ll never defeat us

So stand proud and stand strong
Because you know this is long
A fight to keep your voice 
And always always stand for choice.
