i love it when anti-fems are like, “i support first-wave feminism!” or “here’s this handful of feminists i think are okay!” bc the anti-fem-approved feminists were/are always relatively privileged and bigoted against other oppressed groups. and these same anti-fems will often claim that they oppose feminism because it’s racist, classist, etc., but completely ignore all the feminists who have worked to improve the movement and make it more inclusive.
congrats, you’ve done nothing right and everyone knows you don’t actually give a shit.
Special skills: extensive Harry Potter knowledge, can watch an entire TV show in a week, knows words to every Disney song, can form abnormally strong attachments to fictional characters, Microsoft Word
So you mean, able to retain knowledge, has incredible focus and drive, excellent at processing media, remembers obscure details when needed, and has great skill at creating connections with individuals despite minimal interfacing?
And Microsoft Word?

The Organization for Black Struggle is teaming with ColorOfChange.org on Thursday to deliver a petition to the White House demanding a federal investigation of the Ferguson Police Department, whose officer shot and killed Brown. Simmons said the groups expect to meet with an administration official.
"What you see is a deepening of the movement," said Barber.

Tiffany Mitchell: I arrived at the scene whenever they were tussling through the window. Um, it looked as if the kid was pullin’ away and the officer was pulling him in.
Don Lemon: So you dr-, you sa-, so almost at the beginning of the confrontation but not right in the beginning?
[Footage of people gathered around police tape plays on the left side, where Don Lemon was previously shown]
Tiffany Mitchell: Yes.
Don Lemon: So explain to us, you were driving and then what you saw.

Winona Ryder in 1990 + dinosaur suitcase
#3gee #LOOK AT HTE DINOSAUR CASE #is it just me or were dinosaurs a 90s look that isnt in anymore???
I think you’re totally right, dinosaurs used to be everywhere; I was going to say that maybe it was the Jurassic Park effect, but that movie came out in ‘93, so…
ceeturnalia, yochevedke shakespeareandpunk?
In the late 1980s there was a burst of new findings about dinosaurs and their social behaviors, which led to renewed public interest. This led to the emergence of a new group of paleoartists that responded by illustrating the new findings, aimed at many diff age groups. There was also a major exhibit in 1990 at the Smithsonian museum of natural history of dinosaur sculptures that was apparently more popular than any of their other exhibits. Same year (1990) that Jurassic Park the novel was published. Also, Land Before Time came out in 1988.
So yea, dinosaurs were huge in the late 80s and early 90s.
we need to be married asap yeva
if I had known that dinosaurs were the clincher for you, I woulda became an expert long ago!

Wow, so the problem with rape culture is not that people might actually try protecting themselves but that telling rapists to stop is the only way to combat it? Door alarms, CTV and anti-theft laws haven’t stopped theft either, folks, better ditch ‘em since if they haven’t eradicated the problem then clearly they don’t help at all!
Wow, so this…makes absolutely zero sense and is actually quite triggering, given my history of rape and abuse. You suck ping pong balls and should probably get the fuck out of my askbox, thanks.
YESmovement's a creep but he did have a point back there; you've distanced yourself from toxic fat acceptance activists b/c you've (rightfully) recognized their hypocritical skinny-shaming, but can't muster the possibility that 'reverse w/e-ism' can bring about more than just hurt feelings? We recognize that reverse bigotry doesn't compare in societal levels, but any subsequent action or even crime that said hate begets can do a hell of a lot more than hurt emotions.
Oh for the fuck of shit.
Here’s the comment anon’s referencing. Now anyone who’s actually read my posts about the fat acceptance movement knows that my problems have to do mostly with the movement’s misogyny and ableism, which affect women of all sizes and occasionally manifest in “skinny-shaming” (a word I’ve already expressed my problems with, but whatever). When it comes to “reverse -isms,” well duh, they really can’t cause anything other than hurt feelings, because they only attack the individual and do not have large-scale societal effects. But my complaints about the fat acceptance movement don’t really haven’t anything to do with reverse -isms; rather, I’m complaining about other forms of bigotry and oppression which can affect thin people. And in the post linked in that clusterfail of a reddit thread, I expressly said that I don’t believe many of the people who claim to be hurt by so-called reverse -isms. I acknowledged that hurt feelings are possible, but there’s a pretty huge and important distinction between hurt feelings vs defensive reactions.
Tbh I’m not even sure what else to say here, because my meaning is obvious, this ask is absurd, and I’m pleasantly inebriated. I guess I’ll close with: Get the fuck out of my inbox, and in the unlikely event that you’re following me, please, for the love of god, change that. Because anyone who thinks that willfully dense loser stalker “has a point” is not going to enjoy themselves here.
