Thousands of Tumblr users have been misled by a post suggesting that an unidentified elementary school girl was battered and sexually assaulted by her classmates only to have authorities excuse it as “rough housing”. This story is awful and provokes anger amongst its readers, as it should. However it’s a LIE

This article smelled “off” when I read it because it clearly stated that the mother withheld her daughter’s name to save her from humiliation. Which made the photo of the girl seem off. Why hide her name if you’ll show her face? That’s because this isn’t an article on CNN like the post suggests and that little girl isn’t a sexual assault victim. You’re looking at a photo of Makayla McEvoy. She was 7 when this photo was taken in 2012 after she survived a Kangaroo attack.

Little miss McEvoy is an Australian animal attack survivor. She is NOT an American rape victim from Georgia (thank God)

The artificial news story was fabricated by a Tumblr user called dropmycumberbritches (who now goes by vegetableighs since handing the account off to someone else to avoid heat) After posting the artificial story to raise awareness to Rape Culture, the Tumblr user then celebrated and sang their own praise. Luckily another Tumble user, untrue-posts, found the article, did some digging and reblogged the initial post with the real info.

However, the original post is still picking up speed and is sitting comfortably at 20k+ posts. Please, spread this news and let everyone know that there is not a Georgian rape victim going uncared for. Instead, there’s a poor Australian girl who was attacked by a Kangaroo in 2012 who recovered, only to have her face used for some else’s agenda.

Why some women use Grindr to play games with gay men

poppypicklesticks:

Interesting. 
(Disclaimer, I know catfishing is inherently wrong, but in order to examine the phenomen, I will examine the potential causes.)
For some reason, I don’t feel as anxious about women invading gay spaces as I do about men invading lesbian spaces. Perhaps it’s to do with the straight dating enviroment and male privilege?

The dynamics of how we are socialised to view our sexualities effect how we engage with eachother online. As a result, a heterosexual woman, is *generally* faced with non-stop nudes, clunky innuendos and cheesy pick up lines followed by insults or escalation, whereas a heterosexual man, is faced with…*generally* women who wait for attention and are hoping it’s good. 
It’s a less hostile enviroment for straight men than straight women. There’s a lot of objectification experienced by women. I can see how they would be curious about how men interact with other men, i.e with respect? I can see how that would be intriguing, as can the author.

For straight men, we’re instantly phrasing it as abuse, not how the article talks about straight women: We’re not phrasing it as straight men wondering how women treat each other in the dating enviroment, we’re phrasing it as tricking them. The stigmatisation of female bodies plays a role here: it so exceeds that of male bodies, I doubt gay men sending nudes to a catfish would feel as betrayed as a lesbian sending nudes to a catfish, in the same way that when male celebrities have nudes that are leaked, they are far more laid back and treated more kindly by the media than when a female celebrities nudes are leaked. 

This is why a straight man’s curiosity about a lesbian dating enviroment instantly evokes fear, it’s fear of dual stigmatisation, for being both female and sexually non-available to men. (Obviously, in this entire article, bisexuals are being ignored…this would be an interesting perspective to see. Straight people invading those spaces would in some ways be less fair, but that’s off topic.) Ignoring the dual stigmatisation, if that wasn’t there, is there a case for curiousity? Curiousity about how women treat women… but women treat men how they do because they are taught constantly that male sexuality is something to fear and deal with caution with. Men treat women they way they do because they are also taught this. Women invading a space where they are given the protective powers of an assumed male sexuality instead of a female sexuality is markedly different to a man invading a space where the female sexualities have their guard down because they take on an assumed non-threatening female sexuality. You cannot make this about sheer curiousity, the curiousity exists because we’re told we have different sexualities because of stigmatisation and privilege.

Without the stigmatisation it would be just as acceptable/innacceptable for straight men to be in their spaces. With it, I don’t think you can ignore the privilege for gay men: their sexuality, as males, is not as sensationalised and stigmatised as gay women, it’s respected. This is not to say that this article/phenomenom is okay. Saying that women should be able go into male homosexual enviroments without judgement further endorses the idea that female sexuality is non-threatening, non-damaging. Perhaps, socially, we’re led to believe it is, but that’s not a healthy opinion, as it’s so often used to silence women’s sexualities in favour of focusing on men and their desires.

Sorry that it’s long, but 
TL;DR - There are reasons why we feel different about straight men and straight women in lesbian and day spaces, but they are fucked up reasons anyway.

(Resources on gay men being entitled to women’s bodies and the entirely different reasons why that happens are easily found through google, but here’s a resource to start you off: 
http://adventuresthroughheteronormativity.wordpress.com/2013/01/05/he-didnt-just-objectify-me-did-he-gay-men-and-misogyny/)

And here we have a feminist explaining why she’s not bothered about this, straight women are so oppressed on dating apps, why its okay for straight women to pull this shit but GAY MISOGYNY IS A HUGE ISSUE AND THE OBJECTIFCATION OF WOMEN IS WRONG BUT ITS FINE FOR WOMEN TO CATFISH NUDES AND USE GAY MEN AS THEIR TINDR POTTY TRAINING.

"Interesting. "

I bet you if this was an article about straight men catfishing lesbians you’d have a much stronger reaction then a flippant “interesting”.


"(Disclaimer, I know catfishing is inherently wrong, but in order to examine the phenomen, I will examine the potential causes.)"

Feminist crocodile tears in 3, 2, 1….

"For some reason, I don’t feel as anxious about women invading gay spaces as I do about men invading lesbian spaces."

What a surprise.

"Perhaps it’s to do with the straight dating enviroment and male privilege?"

Maybe it’s because you’re a complete and utter hypocrite?


"The dynamics of how we are socialised to view our sexualities effect how we engage with eachother online. As a result, a heterosexual woman, is *generally* faced with non-stop nudes clunky innuendos and cheesy pick up lines"

Women are so upset by these things, they are pretending to be gay men online so they can get more dickpics and cheesy one liners. Immhmmm.

"followed by insults or escalation"

Yes gay men have NO IDEA what its like to be called slurs when we hit on a homophobic man by mistake. 

"whereas a heterosexual man, is faced with…*generally* women who wait for attention and are hoping it’s good."

Please go out into the real world sweetie. 

"It’s a less hostile enviroment for straight men than straight women."

You want to talk about a hostile environment in dating, sweetheart? Try being a gay man. We have no idea what a man’s reaction will be if we hit on one we don’t know. If he will even be gay. If he will be flattered, or react with verbal abuse or violence. We have no idea what the public’s reaction will be if we hold hands in public with another dude: if we will be spat at, screamed at or attacked or even killed. And you want to talk about your feelings? Do you know why we have Grindr? Because not only are we trying to deal with a dating pool that is less then the tenth the size of yours, but so we can meet others for romance, dating and sex with a bit less fear of violent backlash. And you want to talk about hostility and your pathetic entitlement to one of the few dating options available to us? How selfish are you? Why do you feminists think you are entitled to everything, and that gay men were put on this earth for your amusement and pleasure?

"There’s a lot of objectification experienced by women."

So that makes it okay for majority women to do the same to minority men?

"I can see how they would be curious about how men interact with other men, i.e with respect? I can see how that would be intriguing, as can the author."

Too fucking bad. We are human beings who deserve to be allowed to make use of one of the few dating options that actually level the playing field a bit between homosexuals and heterosexuals We are not animals on safari for you to observe for your own amusement. We are not bacteria to peek at through a microscope to satisfy your curiosity. And we are certainly not fodder for your yaoi slash or OTPs.  Or “inspiration” for that novel you are totally going to write one day

"For straight men, we’re instantly phrasing it as abuse, not how the article talks about straight women: We’re not phrasing it as straight men wondering how women treat each other in the dating enviroment, we’re phrasing it as tricking them."

What on god’s green earth is this supposed to mean?   

"The stigmatisation of female bodies plays a role here: it so exceeds that of male bodies"

This is what feminists do best: “yes its bad when it happens to men, but women have it harder, we need to make sure every discussion about a problem concerning men needs to be about how women feel instead. Yes gay men are being sexually harassed BOT WOT AOUT TEH WIMMINZZ?!??! CAN’T YOU SEE THEY ARE THE REAL VICTIMS HERE?!?!?!??!

"I doubt gay men sending nudes to a catfish would feel as betrayed as a lesbian sending nudes to a catfish"

Actually, one is here right now telling you, and you want to stick your fingers in your ears and go “no no its not so bad listen to me wot about teh wimminzzzzzz they have it harder ssssh gay men let me speak for you you dont understad”. You’re a straight women assuming how gay men being sexually harassed by straight women feel so you can make the women into the role of the eternal victim. There is nothing you people won’t make about yourselves.

"in the same way that when male celebrities have nudes that are leaked, they are far more laid back and treated more kindly by the media than when a female celebrities nudes are leaked."

Bullshit. Its a disgusting violation of privacy and both have received negative backlashes over it.

"This is why a straight man’s curiosity about a lesbian dating enviroment instantly evokes fear, it’s fear of dual stigmatisation, for being both female and sexually non-available to men."

You really don’t have any excuses whatsoever do you? “it happens to women don’t you understand WOT AOUT TEH WIMMIMZ WOT ABOUT HOW THEY FEEL!??!?!?!” How about we talk about the fact that the straight women in this article are paying absolutely no respect to the fact that gay men are not going to be interested in them, so they resort to cybersexing, soliciting nudes and so forth by pretending to be a man online? They want gay men to be sexually available to them, or at least be available for their own amusement or spank fodder.

"(Obviously, in this entire article, bisexuals are being ignored…this would be an interesting perspective to see."

If a bi guy goes on grindr, he’s not looking for a woman. Shocking i know, but not everything is about women. This is something feminists do on a constant basis: condone the poor treatment of one group by women by paying lip-service to another: such as girlfags who attempt to validate their fetishisation of gay men by mentioning the existance of transmen.

Straight people invading those spaces would in some ways be less fair, but that’s off topic.) Ignoring the dual stigmatisation, if that wasn’t there, is there a case for curiousity? Curiousity about how women treat women… but women treat men how they do because they are taught constantly that male sexuality is something to fear and deal with caution with. Men treat women they way they do because they are also taught this.”

I don’t care how fucking curious you are, you have no right to take one of the few dating options away from us. Grindr is not your yaoi dating sim. No there is no “case to be made” for straight women using gay men for their own sexual amusement. Bold as much as you fucking like, it won’t make your feeble excuses about how teh poor wimminzzzz are sooo uhhpresssed that its okay for them to hijack the few dating options available to gay men and make it all about straight women’s gineys tingle.

"Women invading a space where they are given the protective powers of an assumed male sexuality instead of a female sexuality is markedly different to a man invading a space where the female sexualities have their guard down because they take on an assumed non-threatening female sexuality."

No, it is not “markedly different.” Both are unacceptable. The fact that you, as a straight woman feel that one is terrible but the other is harmless and adorable speaks volumes about your hypocrisy?

"You cannot make this about sheer curiousity, the curiousity exists because we’re told we have different sexualities because of stigmatisation and privilege."

You want to talk about privilege when you think women are entitled to gay men: their bodies, their safe spaces, their sexuality and everything they create for themselves? That we are nothing more then dolls put on earth for the amusement and pleasure of straight women?

"Without the stigmatisation it would be just as acceptable/innacceptable for straight men to be in their spaces."

Because we are so not stigmatised. Gay men? In the US? Nah. How about the fact that gay men

"With it, I don’t think you can ignore the privilege for gay men: their sexuality, as males, is not as sensationalised and stigmatised as gay women, it’s respected"

Excuse me? Another straight woman who thinks gay men have privilege over her and that life is a bed of roses for gay men? You are so wrapped up in your bad YA fantasy novel understanding of “male privilege” that you honestly believe that gay men are not marginalised in society at all and that every woman on earth is a beautiful, persecuted, saintly Mary Sue and is the victim in every situation. Homosexuality is never sensationalised? It’s never stigmatised? Listen, just because teenage girls on tumblr gush over Sherlock slash, doesn’t mean in the REAL WORLD male homosexuality is celebrated. Without even going into the fact that many countries and cultures outlawed male homosexuality but not female (for a start only male homosexuality is mentioned in the bible, the UK never had any laws banning lesbianism whilst the gay male age of consent was only lowered to 16 in 2003). We have so much freedom that gay marriage was only made legal in my country last year, and that even though I live in a pretty tolerant country, I still can’t walk down the street holding hands with another boy without fear of being attacked.   You honestly want to talk about how we have “so much privilege”?    How about the fact that male homosexuality is constantly demonised, and is portrayed as ugly, bestial, depraved, perverse, predatory and pedophilic?  That I could just be sitting on the sofa watching a movie with a boy, and there are still people in both the UK and the US will see that as an act of perversion on par with raping a child simply because its two men instead of a man and a woman?   You seriously want to play that card when you know about the complete double standard the media and soceity in general places on two men kissing vs two women?  The song isn’t “i kissed a boy and I liked it” for a reason. 

"This is not to say that this article/phenomenom is okay. Saying that women should be able go into male homosexual enviroments without judgement further endorses the idea that female sexuality is non-threatening, non-damaging."

Oh jesus fucking christ.  ”bot wot about teh wimminzzz!?!?!  THE WOMEN ARE THE REAL VICTIMZ HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Yes straight women are invading gay mens safe spaces and pretending to be men to get nudes and use them as sexual playthings, but we need to focus on the real victims on this!!!  The straight women not being taken seriously enuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOMEN ARE ALWAYS THE VICTIMZ!!!!!!!”

"Perhaps, socially, we’re led to believe it is, but that’s not a healthy opinion, as it’s so often used to silence women’s sexualities in favour of focusing on men and their desires."

Perhaps you are so obsessed with yourself that you simply cannot conceive of a situation where women are not the victims and are the aggressors, and that not everything is about how you, as a straight woman feel, and that maybe you and your self-obsessed movement need to stop hijacking movements that have nothing to do with you and making it all about your feelings instead, to the point that you actually say “a problem for gay men is really a feminist issue because what about how women feel? i am uncomfortable when we are not talking about my vagina and how it feels” 


"Sorry that it’s long, but
TL;DR - There are reasons why we feel different about straight men and straight women in lesbian and day spaces, but they are fucked up reasons anyway.”

"ummm who cares what gay men think about being sexually harassed  by straight women we need to talk about how straight women personally feel and we need to talk about how when gay men are sexually harassed by straight women the straight women are really the victims and we need to talk about how gay men are not allowed to have an opinion on this only straight feminists, and I, as a straight woman, have deemed that its not a problem if its not happening to lesbians so be quiet and reflect on your privilege."

"(Resources on gay men being entitled to straight women’s bodies "why that happens are easily found throughgoogle, but here’s a resource to start you off: http://adventuresthroughheteronormativity.wordpress.com/2013/01/05/he-didnt-just-objectify-me-did-he-gay-men-and-misogyny/)”

So let me get this straight

You just wrote out a huge article saying that its justified for straight women to feel so entitled to gay men’s bodies and sexualities that they can pretend to be men online and catfish nudes and use gay men as nothing more then objects for their sexual amusement, as if Grindr is just “the Sims: Yaoi Expansion pack” and that women are really the victims because the pay tree ark eee and its actually only a problem if the same situation happens between lesbians and straight men because of this nebulous, ham-fisted concept you have learned: “male privilege”?  

But now you think your stupid opinion peace on wordpress is “a resource”?  Piss off.  You are that desperate to demonise gay men that even when you are shown that it is not a one way street at all, you just parrot buzzwords like “male privilege” and “patriarchy” to justify the sheer entitlement straight women feel to gay men, but want me to gulp down your kool aid?  

This nonsense is EXACTLY why feminists such as yourself need to step the fuck away from the LGBT rights movement.   You are so obsessed with yourselves, that you feel the need to dislodge us from our own movements and make it all about the feelings of straight women.  You are no different from the women in the article I showed you: you don’t see us as people, you see as props, buttresses for your egos and your pet issues: you pretend to be our allies, yet you seem determined to make sure gay men know their place: beneath the heels and as the mouthpieces of straight women, as their pets and fashion accessories, as your winged monkeys and ego strokers.  You treat us as dolls to pass around to show how moral and what good allies you are, yet you throw us under the bus and demand we humble ourselves the very minute we stop being useful or amusing to you.  

"not letting mras silence feminism" is your blog tagline.  How about YOU stop trying to silence gay men when they speak out against poor treatment by women, simply because your ego cannot handle a situation where a woman is not the victim and because it also cannot handle a situation where the entire discussion isn’t about what a woman personally feels about all this?   

Just so you know sweetheart, I will always trust the likes of the WBC and God Hates Fags over feminists such as yourself.  You know why?

The WBC never pretended to be our ally so they could plunge a knife in our backs whenever it was convenient for them.  At least I know where I stand with them, which is more then can be said for two-faced, pretentious, patronising hypocrites such as yourself.  You even admit that you would be upset if the situation was reversed, because “male privilege makes it different.”   It’s funny, because if I typed out the same response you did to a lesbian getting upset if a straight man catfished her, you’d call it “mansplaining”. Seriously, just look at your damn profile: “ was trying to understand those people who fit the description of MRA’s (people who fight for men’s rights outside of feminism) and trying to teach them a little about feminism.  Then I realised that they don’t want to listen anyway, they just want to fight us, silence us and our feminist beliefs and belief in oppression, because they don’t agree. 
I believe in feminism and always will. And I will not let them silence and erase us.”  Everything you whine about here, you have just done to gay men with your pathetic little rant about how women are always the saintly angels of perpetual victimhood and that gay men have so muh “male privilege” that its not a problem when straight women sexually harass them and reduce them to nothing more then fetishised little objects put on earth for their amusement and pleasure in this extremely warped fashion. 

Go away, straight girl.   With allies like you, who needs enemies?  

Oh god. That’s so fucking long.

You realise I wrote this as a stream of consciousness? That you need to read the whole piece together to understand what I said? That diving into someone’s profile to make their response less valid is tacky and weak?

Can you not understand that there is such thing as male privilege and straight privilege and that they can intersect? I should have been clearer about how obviously it’s harder to be a gay man than a straight man, and harder to be gay than to be straight, but I was trying to explain the phenomenom, the angles at play, why people would be shocked about invading lesbian spaces but not about gay spaces. 

I’m not going to be pissed at you for being angry at what you think I’m saying, but I’m disappointed that I wrote it too badly for you to understand what I meant.

Oh wow, how did I miss this response? 

"Oh god. That’s so fucking long."

Aw sweetie, did I go overboard in destructing all your bullshit? 


"You realise I wrote this as a stream of consciousness?"

Oh jesus christ you feminists are something else.  ”Ummm I wrote this as a stream of consciousness HOW DARE YOU you hold accountable for the things I said!” 

That you need to read the whole piece together to understand what I said?

"That diving into someone’s profile to make their response less valid is tacky and weak?"

So let me get this straight: Commenting on the things you have ON THE SIDE OF YOUR BLOG and THAT APPEAR AS A HEADLINER WHEN YOUR BLOG IS IN A TAB is “tacky and weak” and “diving into your blog” but you don’t see any real problem in straight women catfishing gay men on grindr for their own amusement and sexual curiosity? 

You feminists are something else. 


"Can you not understand that there is such thing as male privilege andstraight privilege and that they can intersect? “

It’s funny how you fuckwits talk about “mansplaining” until the cows come home, but then you dismiss shit like this with community college social justice jargon and buzzwords. 

"I should have been clearer about how obviously it’s harder to be a gay man than a straight man, and harder to be gay than to be straight, but I was trying to explain the phenomenom, the angles at play, why people would be shocked about invading lesbian spaces but not about gay spaces."

"As a straight woman this does not bother me the way it would if it was straight men doing it to lesbians beuzzz male privilege that ay men enjoy and women are oppressed and demonised for their sexualities in a way gay men are not"

is the tl’dr of what you wrote to me.  

"I’m not going to be pissed at you for being angry at what you think I’m saying"

"ummm i didnt really mean all that it was a stream of conshusnesssss" is the fucking copout of the year even by feminist’s standards of the year. 

"but I’m disappointed that I wrote it too badly for you to understand what I meant."

I’m disappointed at how someone this stupid can thinks they get to be condescending.

the most real tweet ive read all day tbh

"feminist critic" you mean a con-artist who scammed her way into the industry, lies, and has no general idea of what the industry she’s fucking with in. 

and the other hand, it’s someone who got her games through the market only by corruption by the absolute shit that is gaming journalism. 

???? When did literally any of that happen

do you not know about Anita Sarkeesian or Zoe Quinn? The people whose lack of inconspicuousness caused corruption in the game journalism industry to be exposed? the reason why multiple sites that even try to talk about are being hacked?

do you just blindly agree with tweets and not even know what they’re talking about?

I….don’t think you actually know what half the words you just used, actually mean. In fact, I’m sure of it. 

let me guess, your main source on this is Kotaku? or Jezebel?

(please specify which 3rd grade level words I “don’t actually” know)

????? What do either of those sites have to do with literally anything? And ‘inconspicuousness’. Why would you use that word in this context? Are you literally expecting her to never be seen or heard, because vagina or what? 

They’re the center of the controversy? Have you been present on the internet for the past few months or?

"lack of inconspicuousness" because Zoe Quinn was sneaking around sleeping with Kotaku "journalists" (cheating on her boyfriend, as well) to get her [shitty] game high reviews. She did a shit job of sneaking around, because she got caught thus exposing the corruption in gaming "journalism".

Do I have to summarize everything for you?

This just in, having a vagina the leading indicator of sluttiness! 

Sure, I really bet all this totally happened and is not the pathetic drunken fantasies of a dumped loser who wants revenge. Totally. For real. In real life. 

you’re the only one assuming sluttiness, that makes YOU the slut shamer.

"sure this totally happened" the journalists admitted themselves, they even leaked the nudes of her. “Sure it totally happened” then how come all these sites are deleting every thread even discussing what’s happened? how come The Escapist [one of the few sites that allowed discussion] was DDOS attacked? why did the creator and admin [linked to Quinn and Sarkeesian] fire all his mods and tried to remove every thread that discussed it? the whole thing caused most people to move from 4chan to 8chan.

you seem pretty desperate to defend someone on a subject you have no knowledge on.

lmfao is that person even serious right now like it’s been proven over and over again that zoe quinn cheated on her bf and slept with multiple men to get better reviews for her trash game

Asker Anonymous Asks:
Hi! I'm doing an advocacy essay about anti feminism for my english class and i was wondering if you could suggest points/give me references. I'll understand if you can't though since you're probably very busy :) thank you for your time :)
dontneedfeminism dontneedfeminism Said:

mr-cappadocia:

A good place to start is Girl Writes What, also known as Karen Straughan.

She tends to talk about Anti-Feminist issues in a way that’s easy to digest while still providing a solid factual basis.

Consider this an introductory video.

Another solid example is Christina Hoff Somers. She’s been involved with Anti-Feminism for years despite calling herself a Feminist.

This article is fourteen years old now but everything she spoke of is still true. In many ways it’s gotten worse.

Finally, this is an archive of many of my own former writings on the issue. Though many of the issues I cover are several months old as the blog is one I held some time ago, my reason for offering it is in the hopes that it might spark something on your end and I’ll be able to provide any citations or facts you might need.

Um no.

Seriously, no. Some people can’t handle vegan diets. Some of the ingredients gives them allergies or worse. It’s not healthy for them like it would for you. And there are cultural differences involved too. Funny how you would drag non-white people and racism into this when you demand to change their traditions just to make yourself feel comfortable. Plus, vegans aren’t oppressed so don’t act like you are.

 This picture just screams “I’m a pretentious control freak.” 

-Indigo 

Also, being vegan or a feminist is a choice and being discriminated for being either is not comparable to racism or homophobia you twit

~Vanellope

Hi there. Anemic asthmatic very sickly girl speaking here. I stopped eating red meat, just red meat, for one year. Guess what happened? I was sick constantly, and finally, I got so sick that one morning I woke up in SO MUCH PAIN my boyfriend and roommate had to take me to a hospital. And they had to CARRY me out. I know all the vegans out there are probably screaming that it wasn’t not eating meat it was this and that, and yes, it was more than one thing. But after they fixed my iron deficiency and a few other things, a nutritionist told me I had to start eating red meat again, or find some other source of iron. I have now been eating red meat again for a year. I’ve had one or two colds and my usual seasonally allergies. So guess fucking what vegans, some people CANNOT be vegan. I also would be a puddle of mush if I didn’t get a ton of calcium from eating all of the cheese ever. So fuck off.

Vegans are seriously comparing eating meat to homophobia?

If some pissy arse vegan said that near me I would smack the taste out of their mouth.  They wouldn’t be able to taste tofu for a year. 

sometimes this shit gets so downright retarded i cant even joke about it no more 

guess what OP the only actual people that are or are at least trying to oppress anyone are your clique of pretentious fuckwits 
whos very existence is a nonredeemable offense to humanity 

Who needs an actual opponent in a debate when you can just gather your most expertly ignorant buddies and enjoy a nice circlejerk.

Behold, vegans, we are the Social Justice Squad and we’re here to tell you that the world doesn’t have time to grant other species the right to their own bodies and their own lives.

How dare you ask that of me? How dare you ask me not to slaughter animals when there are trans people being murdered. I have to slaughter animals because society is misogynistic. I have to slaughter animals because the government is racist.

I mean, I could make my own almond milk at home but that would take me 10 minutes more than it takes me to buy cow milk at the store and in those 10 minutes I could be saving people! I can’t just waste my time with things like saying “without the cheese” at the restaurant! That takes 2 seconds. You expect me to waste 2 seconds of my life for animals when I could be using them to prevent homophobic and racist actions?

oh comon now we didn´t even start “spot the vegan” yet….

classic tumblr you tried to give some critic and blew so far off the actual issue im unsure i can even address what the hell that jibberish of yours was

lemme try: the issue is not that we would do more or less against racism and REAL sexism and homophobia if we would cater to your notion of consuming no animal products 
the issue is that OP and you are despicable and oppressive in your notion that not living to your example and not sharing your set of rules and moral or whatever 
is in your nonfunctional mind comparable to actual crimes against human rights 
sure sure now we ride off into that animals are equal to humans things you guys get off to
lemme tell you what whenever you see a human as just another animal or not is meaningless we are smarter and more powerful and we are predators and we are omnivores
if i can kill an animal for a load of very rich food and at the same time save myself effort its only logical i go for it 
a lion wont obey your rules and neither will i 
you can go munch grass all you want i wont be keeping you from it 
its not my business how you feed yourself 
but trying to assert the notion however that me eating meat and you not is comparable to someone being ACTUALLY being oppressed or discriminated is a shaming tactic of a level so low i´m left with nothing but to doubt your intelligence and capability to function in the real world 

one more thing from a previous reblogger and myself there are people that cant live vegan 
i for one have a very high metabolism and my body dearly requires alot of meat and other animal products 
trying to life vegan or even vegetarian would downright kill me
so you are LITERALLY telling me i am oppressing you comparable to racism sexism and homophobia by not-dying?

well if thats the deal better not hope we two ever end up in a survival situation 
because then i´ll eat you first 

  • POCs / Racists
  • Gay people / Homophobes
  • Feminists / Sexists

One of these things is not like the others.

Especially since feminism is itself commonly accused of sexism.

I feel like a lot of people, particularly here among the anti-feminist community, often misinterpret what people mean when they say “women deserve respect”. Yes, “respect” in one sense is definitely something that has to be earned, but like many words, “respect” has more…

As far as I’m concerned, if someone means that women deserve common courtesy, then they should simply say that, instead of saying that women deserve respect.

All people hear when someone says “women deserve respect” is “women deserve to get things for free that other people have to earn”.

WORD?

I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if this turned out to be true.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuskegee_syphilis_experiment

Not surprised at all seeing how Europeans ruined everything good that has ever happened to Africa…

I would like to ask everyone to please take a second and calm down.

First, here is a link to the article referenced in the screenshots.

Take note that even with the sensationalist intro, it acknowledges that Dr. Broderick only makes accusations and does not adequately back up his claims.

This is a link to the article written by Dr. Broderick for The Liberian Observer.

Please take the time to read it because it is a rambling mess of an editorial.

In it he claims that Ebola is a genetically modified organism but provides no reference or evidence to this claim other than that biological weapons were researched in the 1970’s.

He references the non-fiction book ‘The Hot Zone’ which deals with the early research of the disease, but doesn’t tie it into any real world connection to human testing. He even acknowledges he hasn’t finished reading it.

From there he lists a number of viral research stations in Africa… and that’s all. He provides absolutely no evidence, even anecdotal, that people are being tested on. The reason a Canadian pharmaceutical company received a $141 million dollars to study Ebola is because that’s how much it costs to study diseases. It’s why the ALS foundation needed people to raise awareness and donate money, scientific research is incredibly expensive.

There is obviously a great deal of passion in this article and I have no doubt that Dr. Broderick had the best of intentions, but all this article has done is spread more fear.

It should never be forgotten that Africans and African Americans have been abused in the name of medical research. The example of the Tuskegee syphilis study is just one example of how racism was used to pervert actual science. It is also extremely important to acknowledge the worlds willingness to turn a blind eye to the suffering in West Africa, but none of this is evidence that Ebola is currently being developed as a weapon.

Ebola has a long incubation period where the infected individual cannot spread the disease. It is only at the end of the infection when the patient is ravaged by it’s symptoms that the virus can be spread and then only by physical contact with bodily fluids. The virus can’t be transmitted through the air. This is a terrible candidate for a biological weapon because it minimizes how quickly it can be spread before infected persons are identified.

The reason Ebola has spread so explosively in West Africa is because people are afraid of hospitals. The health system in the region is woefully underfunded and unable to deal with this level of outbreak. They don’t have the supplies or the personnel. Combined with the general lack of education about the disease, people don’t seek treatment until it’s too late. This has cultivated the idea that when you go a hospital with Ebola they kill you to stop the spread. The funeral practice of washing the dead also puts family members into contact with the virus at its most potent stage.

Spreading fear and seeding conspiracy theories will not help the people most at risk.

Ebola is a remarkably easy disease to quarantine with proper medical supplies and education. Help raise awareness about how there is a desperate need for medical supplies and professionals. Even small contributions to health organizations can have a huge impact on the situation. Thank you for your time.

According to the International Centre for Prison Studies, nearly one-third of all female prisoners worldwide are incarcerated in the United States of America.

you got it right folks, the US prison population is 8.8% female!
women sure are oppressed here!

even black women have a lower chance of being incarcerated than white men. forbes, I thought you knew better than to spread BS. I guess not.
