This is the kind of world we live in today

If your suggestion as an administrator is to tell a teenage girl to go under the knife instead of telling a teenage boy to respect women, you are in the wrong damn line of work.

That school should be closed.
What a disgrace.

"I think the average guy thinks they’re pro-woman, just because they think they’re a nice guy and someone has told them that they’re awesome. But the truth is far from it. Unless you are actively, consciously working against the gravitational pull of the culture, you will predictably, thematically, create these sort of fucked-up representations."

"The trend of labeling women “crazy” is part of the culture that socializes women to go along to get along. When women are told over and over again that they’re not allowed to feel the way they feel and that they’re being “unreasonable” or “oversensitive”, they’re conditioned to not trust their own emotions. Their behavior – being assertive, even demanding or standing up for how they feel – becomes an “inconvenience” to men and they’re taught not to give offense and to consider the feelings of others before their own."

"The average prison sentence of men who kill their women partners is 2 to 6 years. Women who kill their male partners are sentenced on average to 15 years. This is despite the fact that 86% of female offenders kill in self-defense, while males are most likely to kill out of possessiveness (82%), abuse (75%) and during arguments (63%). Women are eight times more likely than men to be killed by an intimate partner."

Anita Sarkeesian is the creator of Tropes vs. Women in Video Games, a YouTube video series examining gender tropes in video games. The series was financed via crowdfunding, and acquired notoriety when its Kickstarter campaign triggered a wave of sexist harassment against Sarkeesian.

When Sarkeesian raised nearly $160,000 using Kickstarter, there was an immediate backlash from members of the gaming and internet communities. Commenters on her YouTube and Facebook pages wrote hateful comments, threats of violence, and death threats.

A game that appeared on popular Flash game website Newgrounds allowed players to virtually assault Sarkeesian by clicking on her face, effectively “beating her up.” As players continued to click the picture, scars, bruises, and lacerations would appear on a photograph of Sarkeesian,

On August 26th, Sarkeesian received a series of graphic threats [trigger warning: rape, violence, sexist slurs] as seen here.

You can show your support of Anita Sarkeesian by donating to her organization, Feminist Frequency, by clicking here.

Feminist Frequency is a 501(c)3 non profit charity, so all donations are tax-deductible.

Breaking news: White fuckboys on twitter bitching how funny it is that Beyoncé is a feminist when she and her dancers were provocative and half naked. Despite feminism being about empowerment and a woman’s right to do whatever the hell she pleases with it, they just don’t seem to be able to grasp this concept.

In other news, men still don’t know what feminism is, still bitter that they aren’t Beyoncé and still making themselves look like asses on the internet.

And now the weather.

"One motivation for doing This Bridge Called My Back was that when I was at UT I wanted to focus my dissertation on fem­inist studies and Chicana literature and soon realized that this seemed to be an impossible project. The advisor told me that Chicana literature was not a legitimate discipline, that it didn’t exist, and that women’s studies was not something that I should do."
