this isnt funny on any level

Ugh you don’t fucking punch down. I don’t care if the dude’s a dude, he’s NOT making any goddamn money and this person has class privilege over him so this idea that it’s funny to lecture someone whose on the bottom of capitalism’s pile and not just giving him a fucking dollar is stupid as shit.

Um, you do realize that she didn’t actually say that to a homeless person, right? That’s just part of the joke?

And, if you watch the clip, you can see that she’s not punching down. She’s not making fun of homeless people. She is, in fact, making fun of herself: “I have found some ways to use feminism to my own advantage, mostly to remain lazy and disgusting.”

So yeah. Watch before you judge.

The joke would be funny if it wasn’t wrong.

Wrong? What’s wrong with the joke? As I stated above, she’s not making fun of homeless people. She’s making fun of herself - specifically, how she uses feminism as an excuse to be lazy and not to give money to the homeless. She’s not making fun of homeless people or feminism, but rather herself.

So, again, what’s wrong with the joke?

Except that wasn’t what I meant. The whole “76 cents to a dollar” thing is what’s wrong.

Um, okay. That’s pretty much the average gender pay gap in the US, however: see this chart.

If you are saying that there is no gender pay gap, well, that’s an entirely different issue. Also, you would be wrong.

Actually no. You’re wrong. There is no wage gap or pay gap. There is an earnings graph. Would you like some sources? By that I mean would you read them ALL without reading one and having your bias kick in?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAHAHAA

Fuck off.

Also, you’re wrong.

Well if women did the same dangerous work for the same amount of hours then they’d be making the same amount of money as them.

Don’t shame men because women aren’t willing to abandon their cushy jobs.

Wow, what is it with this post and fucking MRAs?

To answer the above’s stupid, stupid comment: there are women who do the same dangerous jobs as men and still get paid less. Yes. There are.

Also, fuck off.

Excuse you, but I identify as a feminist.

If even after all that women aren’t making the same amount of money as their male counterparts, then their boss is committing a federal crime and they should report him to the authorities.

Also, no.

Do you believe that men and women should be treated equally? Great. You are a feminist.

But that also means you agree that men and women aren’t treated equally right now. That means you believe women are seen as lesser than men in today’s society, paid less and respected less. And that this inherent sexism in society needs to be corrected because it is wrong.

And if you don’t believe that because you believe that there is no sexism in today’s society (or somehow believe men have it “just as bad” for some reason), then you are not a feminist. You are merely blind.

Also, FUCK. OFF.

Oh I certainly agree that men and women aren’t equal:  The fact that men are expected to do the dangerous jobs, that they’re taught from a young age that women are the purest creatures in existence (and to even think about hurting one is one of the worst things you could possibly do), the fact that men are believed to always want sex and that they can’t be raped.

If we’re going to talk about equality, then you better be willing to admit that women actually are privileged in several parts of life.

In addition. I don’t believe in the wage gap and I don’t think women deserve respect simply because they’re women, if they want respect then they have to earn it first.

Besides, I don’t give a damn if you think I’m not a feminist.  I identify as a feminist, therefore I am a feminist.  If you don’t like that then you can kiss my hairy white ass.(or would that be considered rape?)

Finally, I. SAID. NO.

Wow, look at that.

Go the fuck away now.

Whenever I make chicken in my slow cooker, it always comes out great, except for these small bones that are everywhere. Like, I’ll be eating a nice piece of chicken and BAM bone.

It’s annoying. I should probably buy some boneless chicken breast, shouldn’t I?

In order news, though, the broccoli came out fine (cooked using only steam!).

Holy crap. I need to get my eyes checked again, ‘cause I did a double take at that first line. Thought it said “Whenever I make children in my slow cooker”.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson

According to the laws of physics, a planet in the shape of a doughnut (toroid) could exist. Physicist Anders Sandberg says that such planets would have very short nights and days, an arid outer equator, twilight polar regions, moons in strange orbits and regions with very different gravity and seasons.

Darren Wilson's "blowout fracture"

delphoxqueen:

If you’ve been keeping up with what the media is saying about Darren Wilson, you may have read this article that claims he suffered a blowout fracture: a fracture of one or more bones surrounding the eye. Here is a screencap from the article of “Darren Wilson’s” CT scan….

mdthwomp:

Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
