My first thought was to take solace in the fact that a lot of people will be at HIS FUNERAL with the hateful and ugly slogans he and his family so deserve.

But then I realized they’d only be sinking to the lows of the Westboro Baptist “Church”. I urge anyone and everyone who wants to protest his funeral not to. NOT giving him, or his sick family, any attention when they bury that sick fuck will send a bigger message. WE DON’T CARE ABOUT HIM, HIS “CHURCH” OR HIS FAMILY BECAUSE WE’RE TOO BUSY WINNING MARRIAGE EQUALITY AND BASIC WORK RIGHTS FOR THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY.

Phelps’ hatred and abhorrent behavior did give us one good thing: UNITY. He put a human face on a monster and we came together to rise above it. That’s far more important and significant than stooping to the Phelps’ family low.

If you are on WordPress, I HIGHLY encourage you to follow and read Haifischgeweint. I never miss a post. Jamie is one of the most, if not THE most, intelligent and passionate writer/blogger/activist, etc. I’ve ever come across.

Today is National Abortion Provider Appreciation Day. Abortion providers bravely choose to uphold the principles of Roe v. Wade every day, risking life and limb, so that pregnant people have the right to choose.

Show your love and thanks to the courageous men and women who stand by choice, bodily autonomy and science by sending your local provider an awesome postcard!

Hi, there. I just want to clarify something with you. Your issue is not that the products exist, right? It's just the fact that they are marketed *specifically* to women? If your issue is with the gender-based marketing, then I completely agree with you. But there's also the other side of it, that men can also like pink and floral patterns and other things coded "feminine".

@feministrocker Of course that’s the issue. Those gloves are purposely marketed for women. So, not only do we have to keep the house clean, we have to look good doing it? That lady has her hair done up, makeup on and most likely heels! It would be laughable if it weren’t so prominent and disgusting. It is NOT the gloves themselves. That’s just ridiculous. It’s the ad men suits that market this crap to us. I saw a lot of comments made by men saying they’d love a pair of those gloves. Maybe they’re gay, maybe they’re not. It shouldn’t matter. But if they want to buy those gloves in Hicksville, USA, who knows what kind of hate that’ll stir up cuz them there gloves are for women! See what I mean?

My boyfriend found a crap load of these CPC flyers in the laundromat of our apts. So he took them all down, then went to the 2nd laundromat and took those down too. I love him :)

Saw these gems at Target. But we’re not living in a patriarchal society anymore. Women can vote now, dontcha know?!

Apparently women wanting to accessorise is the Patriarchy. Or maybe… just maybe… some women like floral print gloves and there is enough of a market for them? What the fuck is wrong with you you crazy bitch?

Seriously if gloves with flowers on them in a Walmart are the best example of the patriarchy she can find, then I think she’s rendered her own argument invalid. I could just as easily go to any weight lifting item in a supermarket with a picture of a ripped dude on it and say “checkmate, matriarchs.”

Yes,
endgaem
, it’s been a matriarchal society from the very beginning, hasn’t it? I must’ve forgot. This shit is ALL AROUND ME EVERY SINGLE DAY. These are one example. I would say MRA wannabes such as yourself are the best example of why feminism is necessary. Good luck with that “Social Justice Warrior” bullshit. You and
justsjwthings
fit the very definition so well it’s rather astounding. The fact that you would even claim to be proud of having nothing better to do on social media and no real or definitive argument either way is truly laughable. And quite pathetic.

I called you on your trivial bullshit, and you completely misconstrue my argument and put words in my mouth? I should say I’m surprised, but honestly I wouldn’t have put it past you.

I never said we live in a matriarchal society, you twit. I said that your argument was stupid because you tried to equate purple and pink gloves with flowers on them in a first world Supermarket with an imaginary oppressor, and I made an analogy, a literary device you clearly don’t understand. Maybe you should focus on actual social issues rather than getting pissy about accessories in a WalMart.

And no, sweetheart, I’m no MRA. I’m an egalitarian. I’m for equal rights for all.

Also, could you point me to where I said said I was proud of doing nothing on social media? I’ve never said anything like that. I’d like an actual quote, too, please.

But you don’t have one, do you? You only have straw men, hypocrisy and rationalization for your misguided anger and hatred.

endgaem here is the very definition of what you’re so proud to be, according to your header. I DO focus on the ACTUAL social issues, you twit, but you can’t even see past that. It IS the small things that count that add up to the bigger picture. And as far as an analogy goes, here’s the definition of that too, since you seem to have that so seriously wrong. My anger and hatred are right where they need to be. Who the FUCK are you, as a CISGENDER MALE, to tell me I’m misguided?! Because you’re an SJW. You have no real purpose. Get a life, a job, a better understanding, A SOMETHING. And leave what you THINK are my understandings out of your pathetic attempts at “real social justice.” You haven’t the FIRST clue of who I am and what I do, you know why? Because you take ONE post SO far out of context, from a blog I barely pay attention to because I’m actually off doing far more important things regarding social justice than you will ever do in a lifetime. GET. A. LIFE.

hey, guys?

this is a pretty important petition i think we need to pass around again. 

creepshots has both a tumblr and a twitter in which they openly accept demeaning pictures of women, WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT. THESE IMAGES ARE TAKEN OF WOMEN WHO HAVE NO IDEA THEY ARE BEING PHOTOGRAPHED, AND THEN PUT ONLINE FOR THESE FUCKING WASTES OF SPACE TO “ENJOY”.

look at either of them if you want a taste, but be aware that comments such asShe fall from lifting the bar or lifting those tits?” are common on each and every unsolicited, disgustingly indulgent photo.

on top of this, they have allegedly accepted images of women in their own homes, taken by spouses or boyfriends without their partner’s consent.

this is not fucking fair.

this is fucking disgusting.

this is rape culture.

and we have no choice but to get together and shut them down.

please sign this fucking petition.
