if you don’t think some of the hate Taylor Swift receives is unnecessary and sexist let me just remind you that she once wore a black turtle neck, jeans and boots and this was a result
scandalous wow cover your eyes
shes wearin a turtleneck call tHE COPS SHES BEIN 2 SEXY
I may not give a shit about her or her music, but really? The headline might as well say ‘Taylor Swift Sexed Up the XFactor Stage By Standing On It’
Toronto-based editor Lyndsay Kirkham has started a firestorm this week after overhearing what was apparently an incredibly sexist conversation between IBM executives at lunch — and live-tweeting it.
Unaware that they were transmitting sexist nonsense to cyberspace, the IBM executives openly discussed “why they don’t hire women.” If you take Kirkham’s account at its word, it actually gets way worse.
I met Luke skywalker today (: I love Star Trek!
Don’t be rude….. Why can’t I be a Trekkie and proud? “Falcon Punch!!!” Amiright?
Just incase this isn’t a joke. Harrison Ford played Han Solo in Star wars
No sweetie……. You’re confused…….. You’re thinking about Yoda from Star Fox (:
"in case this isn’t a joke"
I hate how that’s the assumption, or that it’s even a passing thought.
Here’s why it’s a terrible idea to let your kids watch Fox News.
While commenting on a female perpetrator fleeing to Canada after committing statutory rape, a Fox correspondent said this:
"If you’re a sixteen-year-old kid and you have sex with your best friend’s mom you usually get high-fives."
And Jesse Watters didn’t stop there.
"She’s not that attractive so you might not have that kind of reception … She’s not Debra Lafave.”
This isn’t the first time a man on Fox’s Outnumbered downplayed the seriousness of statutory rape. For reference, see: Tucker Carlson, who told America to "lighten up" on the crime and said that men understand that sexual harassment from a female teacher is the "greatest thing that ever happened." A month later he attacked a kid for reporting statutory rape as "whiny."
We’re seeing a trend here, and it’s Fox’s glorification of crimes against America’s youth. This is especially problematic when an estimated 1 in 6 men go through unwanted or abusive sexual experiences before they turn 18.How rape culture handles male victims.
Tampons were packed with their strings connecting them, like a strip of sausages, so they wouldn’t float away. Engineers asked Ride, “Is 100 the right number?” She would be in space for a week. “That would not be the right number,” she told them. At every turn, her difference was made clear to her. When it was announced Ride had been named to a space flight mission, her shuttle commander, Bob Crippen, who became a lifelong friend and colleague, introduced her as “undoubtedly the prettiest member of the crew.” At another press event, a reporter asked Ride how she would react to a problem on the shuttle: “Do you weep?”
Men don’t appreciate the amount of self-control women have to exercise in order not to spend their entire lives facepalming.
Most women in the modern Western world have no space of our own in the home—no den, basement workshop, garage, outside domain, or special chair in the living room. Though the kitchen and bedroom often are thought of as “her” rooms, they are hers only as spaces in which she is expected to provide services to and for her man. Private space—space in which she can just be, space where she does not have to justify her presence by being engaged in work—is nonexistent unless she actively creates and maintains it.

and its interesting that when watching tv or reading things the “man cave” always gets brought up as a half joke but really more serious thing that every man “needs” but then when women have craft rooms or other similar things related to their own interest it is always the butt of a joke (haha silly wimminz wanting space of their own)
Yo, this is more than just disgusting, it’s illegal. It’s against the law to alter and distribute personal pictures without their permission; and it’s especially against the fucking law to create false porn with it. That’s slander, defamation, libel; whatever you want to call it. Not only that, but to release their private information? They should be going to jail for this
And they can, if the pictures they take are of minors. And you know that some of them will be; people as young as 13 use this website. You don’t have to be much smarter than a 4channer to understand that making porn of an underage person is bad fucking news.
Here’s what you can do:
Leave a tip about this to the fbi. Provide screencaps like this one as evidence. You have to put in your personal info, but it’s no more than having to fill out a survey. It’s worth it; and they already have that info anyway.
Some resources for people who’s pictures have been taken/photoshopped, or people who have been doxxed.
Please remember to also strongly encourage tumblr itself to take swift actions against this. Their users are in danger; they owe it to us to protect us. Contact them at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them what is happening, asap.
Please, spread this around, and ask your followers to do the same. If you have sideblogs, put this there, too. Feel free to also make similar posts to this one and put them in as many tags as possible. eople need to know what they can do to protect themselves.
Proud of Cartoon Network for taking action so quickly.
mixed feelings about this but i dont care im happy how quickly CN handled it
well, there really shouldn’t be mixed feelings; the safety and comfort of those who were harassed comes first, but yes I’m very proud of cartoon network taking immediate action into this scenario.
