You would expect that men who ask for flexible schedules in order to take care of their kids would be less likely to have the request granted than women, right? Because nobody thinks that men can take care of kids. Everybody’s soooo nice to mothers, mothers get all the credit, poor fathers can’t get a break, they’re so looked down upon.

NOPE.

About 70 percent of the participants who read a transcript with a male employee said they would be “likely” or “very likely” to approve his request when it was for child care reasons, compared to only 56.7 percent of those who read the same transcript with a female employee. About 24 percent found the man to be “extremely likeable” compared to only three percent who found the woman “extremely likeable.”

it’s weird how straight boys will find out that a girl is bisexual and then think that girl wants to fuck them with another girl. And if they find out a guy is gay they think that guy wants to fuck them.

No one wants to have sex with you. You are are not cute. At all.

Today, I replied to his latest text saying that if he didn’t leave me alone I am going to put his name and phone number on social media. If I have to do this, please text him and let him know exactly how you feel about about any of the following:

  • racists
  • people who think rape victims ask for it
QuestionFriendly reminder that it was feminists who fought for the rights of male survivors by making the law change the legal definition of rape. MRA's can shut up now. P.S. I adore your blog. Answer

‘Outlander’ is being called the feminist’s ‘Game of Thrones’ — and this scene on rape culture proves it 

If you’re not watching Outlander, you might want to start. The Starz drama revolves around a British World War II combat nurse who accidentally travels back in time to 1743 after touching a magic rock (it’s much better than it sounds) and finds herself in the midst of a Scottish struggle for independence. 

With its wonderfully nuanced heroine and female-friendly sex scenes (Jezebel rightly called it the “historical smut of [our] dreams”), the show is being hailed as the feminist’s Game of Thrones. And it more than lived up to its reputation with its latest episode, when leading lady Claire (Caitriona Balfe) schooled a gruff 18th-century Scotsman about rape culture.

Immensely satisfying, explicitly feminist scene

"Gay people shouldn’t get married because-"
"Obviously rape culture doesn’t exist"
"She shouldn’t have been out at night in that skirt"
