"THIS PICTURE WILL NOT CHANGE THE WORLD, BUT I STILL NEED FEMINISM AND I’M GOING TO REALLY, REALLY TELL YOU WHY":
-Because I got called a whore for wearing a short plaid skirt when I was 10
-and because when Nujood Ali from Yemen was 10 she got divorced
-Because black girls’ names became my classmates’ favorite “joke” when I was 11
-and because when an 11-year-old girl in Texas was raped by 18 men the New York Times wrote of how the girl “dressed older than her age”
-Because I started counting calories when I was 14
-and because when Malala Yousafzai was 14 she was shot in the head for trying to go to school
-Because I heard a boy greet a girl with “hey slut” today at age 16 -and because when a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio was filmed being raped by two boys at a party while unconscious the CNN reporters talked about how tragic it was because the rapists had such bright futures as athletes
-Because I will have to watch my drink at all bars and parties when I am 22
-and because when CeCe McDonald was 22 she was sentenced to 41 months in prison for defending herself against a man who screamed transphobic, racist insults at her and then slashed her face with a bottle
-Because no matter what age I am the biggest threat to men will still be heart disease, and the biggest threat to women will still be men.
-Because it is not just about me, because it is not just about anger, because it is not just a JOKE, because it is not just about “hating men,” because it is not just about girls with vaginas, because it is not just about ending “slut”, because it is not just about white straight girls in Rookie magazine, because it is not just about writing on backs, because it is not just about the fact that gay men are “fags” but lesbians are “hot,” because it is not just about pictures of thin white girls being the only google image results for the search phrase “beautiful women”, because it is not just about writing signs, because it is not just about what she was wearing or how many times she said yes before she changed her answer to no, because misogyny is not just about one thing and feminism is not just about one thing and it is not just “a trend” and it will not “happen” in just one way.
-And because yes. It is about equality for EVERYONE, but first and foremost it needs to be about equality for girls, because they are not treated equally to men, in every single sense, and you are not going to take feminism away from me and call me bossy/hostile/aggressive and make this about yourself or make it into a joke, because truth be told, I’m not joking and I’m tired of explaining. If you want to call yourself a feminist, you work hard to spread feminism, you do not turn this into a contest of whose struggle is greater and constantly demand to know what you can get out of feminism personally. Feminism is not just about you, or me, it is about everyone. If you’re male and you’re tired of men being stereotyped as hyper-masculine, soulless, sexist, inherent leader-tyrant creatures, then go out and prove the patriarchy wrong and fight for girls, like someone with a soul who believes in equality would. Then, yes, feminism will be about everyone.

What does feminism have to do with living in a shitty part of town?

You can’t blame harassment on a “shitty part of town.” You blame it on a culture that lets harassment slide.

Explain to me how culture has allowed punishment for streetside harassment to slide to such a point as this? I’m DYING to know.

Might I suggest getting a concealed weapons permit instead?

In parts of the nation where “freedom” is more of a Scrabble word than a working concept, there are restrictions and sometimes outright bans on owning the most popular rifle platform in the nation, the Eugene Stoner-designed AR-15. Other self-loading rifles with certain cosmetic features are also…

"Bitches crying wolf-rape happens more often then not." So there are more cases of false rape accusation than no accusations at all and at least 51% of all men have been falsely accused of rape? Or do you just spit out random words and hope they form coherent sentences? Based on your crazed rant, I'm guessing the second.
Anonymous

All I’m saying anon, is that when I hear, “he raped me” - unlike you, I don’t jump the gun. I take it with a grain of salt until proven otherwise. Just look through my archives and see just how many bitches crying wolf-rape I’ve done posts on. It happens, and, now-a-days with all of the manginas, “male feminists,” and overall pussied men in this world, a lot more womyn are emboldened to do just that, to cry wolf-rape to get something accomplished.

The simple fact that we’re having this discussion proves my point.

What’s the best part of being Catholic?

SFL has become a disgusting organization without any understanding of philosophy or causation vs. correlation vs. irrelevancy.

As of April of 2014:
The population of the Netherlands = 16,846,300
The population of the USA = 317,871,000
That is, there are 19x as more people in the U.S. as there are in the Netherlands. Therefore, stating that there is a 15% lower rate in the Netherlands versus the USA is moot due to the fact that, a larger population will naturally have a larger rate of divorce.
Compound that with the fact that homosexuals are one of the smallest minorities in ANY demographic, and we quickly see that this statement against traditional and natural marriage is a farce. For if, according to a study using the 2010 the US census, only 3.5% of the US population are homosexuals - if we were to extrapolate that same number for the Netherlands then less than 600,000 of it’s citizens are gay (more than likely lower) and if only half of those are married, and if only half of those get divorced, then - naturally - the number of gays divorced will always be lower.
Additionally, one would have to conclude that gays are happier in the Netherlands as well, right? Well, 5 years after legalizing gay “marriage,” a study concluded that homosexuals still had a higher rate of suicide per capita then the larger heterosexual population! Think about that, in one of the most gay-friendliest countries on earth a sexual-minority group has a higher rate of suicide then the majority of that country’s general population. In 2011, a full 10 years after “making history,” the Netherland’s Institute for Social Research (SCP) did a study and it reached the following conclusion: 
11% of gay men and 16% of lesbians consider suicide. The figure is only 3% for the heterosexual population. 
6% of gays actually attempt to commit suicide and 10% of lesbians, compared to 2% of heterosexuals
Don’t blame homonegativity on this stat either, because the same study found that from 2006 to 2008, the homosexual social stigma dropped from 15% to 9% and, the same stigma dropped from 70% in 1975 to less than 30% by 2009. In regards to gay “marriage,” the study concluded that in 1988 45% of the population saw it as a negative whereas, in 2008, only 11% saw it as a negative. And yet, the high rate of suicides…
Marriage won’t make homosexuals happier if they aren’t happy with themselves first. Attempting to normalize or legalize abnormal behavior isn’t a remedy either.

I’ve heard many Muslims in Texas talk about how other people from outside the state or country assume that they’re being mistreated here and that it must be horrible for them. Those Muslims tell those people that they’re always treated with kindness. Sometimes they get looks but it doesn’t bother them. But they understand that people look at them because they don’t see someone wearing a hijab or burqa very often. 

So that’s why I laugh every time I hear someone from tumblr complain about the oppression that Muslims have in America. 

From their adjusted gross income of $481,098, the president and first lady gave $1,500 to St. John’s Church, an Episcopalian parish near the White House where they occasionally attend services.

Oh yeah, speaking of the Episcopalian church, President Obama has selected the first openly gay Episcopalian “bishop” to lead Easter prayer at the White House. I guess know we know why he donated to this “church.”

So… this woman sexually assaults this guy, clearly. He’s begging, pleading, demanding she stop.

She doesn’t stop.

She grabs his hand and stuffs it in her crotch. He recoils.

Insert False Allegation: THE FUCKING CAB DRIVER IS ARRESTED.

Let that sink in… The fucking CAB DRIVER ended up getting arrested when the lawyer in question. Yeah… that’s right… SHE’S A FUCKING LAWYER… accused him of blackmailing her.

He was summarily arrested.

There was no proof he actually blackmailed her. None. The Police never even bothered to verify her claims. At all. They just straight up fucking arrested the CAB DRIVER and threw him in jail.

When it became apparent there was no proof of blackmail whatsoever, and the whole “She’s fucking sexually assaulting him on the fucking tape the police are holding in their hands” she managed to get charged with something.

What did she get charged with?

Simple assault. I shit you not.

WHAT THE FUCK?!?!?!?

Bitches crying wolf-rape happens more often then not. Fuck these sluts, bodyslam these hoes. Here’s a tape recording of some drunk bitches refusing to pay a cab driver and then saying he molested them in order to get out of paying the $13 cab fare. In Ottawa, a cab driver was accused of rape after the “victim” - an angry women with Down’s syndrome - got mad at the cab driver for buckling her seatbelt for her! For simply following the law, he lost his job and spent nearly 2 years under the suspicion of sexual assault; in court, the “victim” - and I do use the term loosely - stated that she may have of imagined or made the whole thing up, causing a dismissal of the trial all together.

In the U.K., thanks to the a mobile recording app, a taxi driver was able to prove his innocence after a female “victim” stated that he had raped her at knifepoint. Another English women received 20 months in jail after she falsely accused a taxi driver of sexual assault; the cabbie was handcuffed in front of fellow cab drivers, forced to strip naked at the police station and, given a cavity search. 

NOTE TO ALL MEN: if a bitch ever accuses you of rape, rape her teeth with your fist.

The suspect ran for office numerous times, but he started as a Democrat in 1984, running in the North Carolina gubernatorial primary. After a number of other attempts at elected office, he returned home to the Democrat/Ku Klux Klan/Party in 2006, running in the Democrat primary for Missouri’s 7th congressional district in 2006. His candidacy had the far-left hate site Daily Kos freaking out, “Racist felon running for the Dem nomination in MO-7.”

Frazier Glenn Miller is a Democrat to the core.

The “debts” here are overpayments of Social Security benefits, the product of SSA’s own errors. The parents who received them might not have even realized they were getting money they weren’t supposed to have. And now, somehow, it’s junior’s problem.

But wait. It gets worse.

When [Mary] Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.

Now, Social Security claims it overpaid someone in the Grice family — it’s not sure who — in 1977. After 37 years of silence, four years after Sadie Grice died, the government is coming after her daughter. Why the feds chose to take Mary’s money, rather than her surviving siblings’, is a mystery…

“It was a shock,” said Grice, 58. “What incenses me is the way they went about this. They gave me no notice, they can’t prove that I received any overpayment, and they use intimidation tactics, threatening to report this to the credit bureaus.”

Social Security officials told Grice that six people — Grice, her four siblings and her father’s first wife, whom she never knew — had received benefits under her father’s account. The government doesn’t look into exactly who got the overpayment; the policy is to seek compensation from the oldest sibling and work down through the family until the debt is paid.

SSA insists that they did send notice — to a P.O. Box that Grice hasn’t owned for 35 years, even though they have her current address.
