And if that is hard for you to think about, know that it is harder to live in it.

I am so exhausted by people who do not think this is a problem. I carry a pocket knife, a whistle, pepper spray, and a very sharp self defense keychain with me where ever I go. I look around each corner with a tight stomach, and try to keep my eyes open and darting with consistent awareness. Staying vigilant when going anywhere is a part of every day life for me. And with good reason. The examples I have from just my life alone that support this cautious behavior are countless.
Saying it’s not a problem doesn’t make it go away. It keeps it alive.
Don’t tell me that I’m lying. That I haven’t been catcalled, whistled at, followed, pinched, prodded, felt up, mugged, and sexually assaulted. It is real and all too common and has affected more of my life than I’d care to admit, most of the time. And it is not and has never been my fault. I’m going to talk about it. I’m going to fight you on it. Because if you think it’s not an issue, you’re wrong.

"I decided that I was a feminist. This seemed uncomplicated to me. But my recent research has shown me that feminism has become an unpopular word. Women are choosing not to identify as feminists. Apparently, [women’s expression is] seen as too strong, too aggressive, anti-men, unattractive."

My roommate and his girlfriend got in the shower together and they’re… Talking about politics?

I was expecting to hear “OH GOD, HARDER,” not “George Washington was entirely correct in his prediction of what distinct parties would do to politics as a whole.”

Nope nevermind, there it is, apparently political debate is just their form of foreplay

STOP REBLOGGING THIS HE HAS A TUMBLR

A 14 year-old boy was recently raped at knife-point by a 20 year-old woman. When the story broke, it was primarily men who claimed he should have enjoyed it. It was feminists who validated his pain and spoke in support of him.

This is why we need feminism.

Darren Hunt of Utah

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back
