when people say that abortion should only be legal in cases of rape it only proves that people don’t give two fucks about the fetus’s life, they just want to punish women for getting pregnant
catcalls and other street harassment are a form of violence and expressed hatred for women and don’t ever think of it as anything but that because a man on the street can go from “hey baby you look sexy tonight” to “bitch don’t fucking ignore me” in .002 seconds
it’s not about appreciating a woman’s beauty or boosting her ego with a little compliment, it’s intimidation and a source of empowerment for them
White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”
I will never understand why.
Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.
Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.
Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.
If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear."
y’all think it’s a coincidence that we went from the variation of a young working class companion and her poc working class boyfriend, a very visibly Not Straight companion, a woc companion and an older, lower middle class companion, to two young, thin, white, well-off middle class companions and also a white middle class boyfriend
"Famous from a sex tape"
More like rich from someone leaking her sex tape against her will and then famous because of all the money she made from the lawsuit and her tv show? And all her other smart business decisions? Sit your bitter ass down

becoming a parent means being the one to get the wasp out of the room and idk if i’m prepared to do that
Strategies I have used to try to avoid getting the wasp out of the room:
"Shouldn’t we let nature take its course? The wasp will eventually die."
"Mom will be home in three hours; perhaps the wasp-removal process can wait until then."
"Let’s open the window and see if the wasp will fly out."
"Perhaps there is a wasp removal service that will get the wasp out of the room for a small fee. Let me look on google."
"You’re four now. You’re a big kid. Maybe you want to attempt to get the wasp out of the room."
"Maybe we should just leave the house and go to the playground and hope that the wasp has magically disappeared by the time we return."
"Alternately, we could just sell this house and find a different, waspless one."
