  1. United Airlines just stepped in it big time... nytimes.com/2017/03/26/us/united-airlines-leggings.html Why the fuck do US carriers have to suck so much?
  2. Not sure whether to post this here or on the misogyny thread but here is a really good article on the New Statesman about the latest awful policy to come out of Westminster where women will now have to prove that one of their kids was the product of sexual assault if they have more than 2 kids and need to claim child tax credit. Never mind the fact that the 2 child maximum will push thousands of already existing children that little bit further into poverty or that people should be allowed to eat regardless of the circumstances of their birth; no the Nasty Party want to punish women for having sex while poor and allow that punishment to spill over onto their kids. Seriously, Fuck This! http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2015/08/tory-rape-exception-tax-credits-worse-you-thought
  3. The charming folks at the Daily Mail have been paying attention to the things that are going on in UK politics. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/03/28/british-daily-mail-slammed-for-sexist-legs-it-headline-on-brexit-eve.html I suppose I shouldn't expect anything else from these guys now but come on!
  4. Jameis Winston (NFL qb) tells classroom of elementary girls that they should be silent, polite and gentle. The boys should be loud and strong and can do anything they put their minds to. He tries to back away later but it's pretty weak. http://www.cnn.com/2017/02/23/sport/jameis-winston-elementary-school-speech/index.html
  5. Some good news out of Hawaii; nbcnews.com/news/asian-america/hawaii-republican-leader-rep-beth-fukumoto-officially-resigns-gop-n737341
  6. Another asshole Republican from Oklahoma living down to the party's reputation rawstory.com/2017/03/watch-oklahoma-state-rep-says-rape-and-incest-are-the-will-of-god-in-abortion-bill-hearing/#.WNMse1MLFcs.twitter
  7. Another Republican says what they're thinking https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2017/02/14/oklahoma-bill-would-require-father-of-fetus-to-approve-abortion Hey, Humphrey, fuck you! What's next you piece of shit? Women having to get permission to leave the house? To drive?
  8. Today is the International Women's Day. Looking for an image to go with my well wishes to all of us on my status I found this image. It states that the rising of women is the raising of us all. Lately I have often heard of how feminism is wrong because it privileges women. When I hear this I wonder how is it possible that people don't understand that granting women's rights is beneficial to the entire society. For example to deny women their right to choose on reproductive issues, defund public programs specifically created to help them with these issues and promote abstinence only sex ed have immediate consequences on single women and long term consequences on the society as a whole. How is it possible that some people just don't understand it? I also have often heard that, in comparison with the horrid life conditions of so many women around the World (FGM, child marriage, trafficking just to name a few), Western World women's concerns about casual sexism, paid maternity leave and the like are just ridiculous and they should stop whining. What do you think about this? Is there room to fight against both? Is sexism still a concern? Is it still a widely spread, hurtful and deeply ingrained habit?
  9. Some good news out of Nebraska today kcrg.com/content/news/Nebraska-lawmaker-quits-after-unsavory-Womens-March-tweet-411756165.html Dear Fornicate Stick Kintner. Door. Ass. Avoid it impacting on the way out.
  10. Ugh. buzzfeed.com/tylerkingkade/georgia-bill-would-stop-colleges-from-carrying-out-rape-inve And this idiot is all excited about Donald J. Putinfluffer and how said Putinfluffer is going to destroy Title IX. I'd call him a fucking pig but that would be insulting to pigs.
  11. It's been almost twenty years but I'm glad I don't work there now. thesmokinggun.com/documents/revolting/vile-walmart-squirter-arrested-839205
  12. I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume that this guy voted for the Orange Toxic Megacolon thesmokinggun.com/buster/buttocks/old-guy-in-mooning-bust-628439
  13. I just saw this on FB and my jaw dropped. SERIOUSLY?!
  14. Just read a long article on HuffPo Highline ("Stories that stay with you"): My Journey to the Center of the Alt-right by Luke O'Brien http://highline.huffingtonpost.com/articles/en/alt-right/ FJ explained to me the terms alt-right edge lord, cucking, 4chan, so thanks for that background. This article goes deeply into white identity politics and lays out how how Trump is enabling and promoting, white identity politics. As noted above, this is a long article and scary as crap. Luke O'Brien visited many leaders of the alt-right and has obviously done his research on the movement. He's a smart guy who writes well. Take your time to read the whole thing. Here are a few paragraphs from throughout the article to whet your appetite. I learned two new-to-me words in this article: sigil: an inscribed or painted symbol considered to have magical power bricolage: (in art or literature) construction or creation from a diverse range of available things.
  15. On the Facebooks today. Of course the girls get punished! Let's not have informative sex ed so the male & female students know the importance of self control & healthy bodily function. http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2016/10/04/boy-has-impure-thoughts-blames-cheerleaders-skirts-school-punishes-cheerleaders/?utm_source=ET&utm_medium=ETFB&utm_campaign=portal&utm_content=inf_10_60_2&tse_id=INF_00b51190917011e6b6db4d0235f40af5
  16. https://m.facebook.com/MANWHOHASITALL/ This Facebook page is hysterical! The posts are funny but it's the comments that really make it work.
  17. Life is increasingly making no sense. How is it possible to molest a baby, on film, no less, and get no jail time? https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/true-crime/wp/2016/09/19/teen-pleads-guilty-to-sexual-abuse-of-a-1-year-old-girl-then-a-judge-gives-him-no-prison-time/ It seems like the perpetrator was manipulated into the act by older adults online, but even so, he should have realized that what he was doing was wrong.
  18. This seems pretty interesting to me, and relevant to what we discuss here. Like the author, it bothers me to see young women distancing themselves from feminism, so I hope this does help to shine light on abusive, misogynist practices that are happening right now. http://nytlive.nytimes.com/womenintheworld/2016/04/19/novelist-creates-a-dystopian-world-for-girls-inspired-by-homegrown-fundamentalism/
  19. I recently found out about the story of Patricia Davis, a non-smoking, non-smoking teenager who was branded a drunken slut after she was raped at an MGM "stag party" in 1937 (which she was hired for under false pretenses) and dared to go public with it: http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2003/04/mgm200304 The entire story is quite infuriating, not just because of what Douglas endures, but because I'm not sure anything has really changed in terms of powerful men being punished for sexual Crimea or victims being able to seek justice.
  20. I just have a moment, but I had to post this because I am so astonished. Tim Bayly thinks women are too delicate and fragile to be in the military (though he himself conveniently was a "pacifist" just during the time he could've been drafted for Vietnam). He thinks women should defer to men. he bleats on and on about the need for men to protect women. HE is voting for Hillary. For a really good reason! A reason I agree with entirely. He is afraid Trump could start a war. http://baylyblog.com/blog/2016/07/first-blast-trumpet-monstrous-regiment-women
  21. http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/crime/2016/07/a_texas_prosecutor_jailed_a_rape_victim_to_ensure_her_testimony_against.htmlhttp://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/crime/2016/07/a_texas_prosecutor_jailed_a_rape_victim_to_ensure_her_testimony_against.html
  22. This poster was put up in the library at Desert Ridge High School in Mesa, Arizona. The writing at the bottom was done by a student. Reads like one of Lori Alexander's flow charts.
  23. I hope this guy does go to prison; nydailynews.com/news/national/bigot-admits-ripping-fellow-plane-passenger-hijab-article-1.2636677 I hope someone explained to this asswipe that because this is America that means she has every right to wear a hijab if she wants.
  24. Unfortunately even though Jindal is gone there's still plenty of stupid in Louisiana government; thonline.com/ap/national/article_b9f0a769-e433-5f61-ae65-9063aa92b2cd.html Fuck you Rep. Havard.
