Catcalling is not sweet or empowering. It’s harassment, with potentially deadly consequences.
Author John Scalzi was on a roll this morning (currently 7:14 AM, 26 Sept. 2014) with a tweet he found from some guy sending out an “ultimatum” to women to “make a choice” between feminism and, well, men like him. So Scalzi launched into a truly magnificent set of scorchers, which I’m posting here for the delectation of people everywhere.
Also: I would like to thank that guy for setting the ultimatum. It makes finding a boyfriend so much easier when the undesirable ones wear a placard identifying themselves.
"The tragedy of that poor boy’s life is not the realization that he’s not the grand prize he’s assumed, but that he’s not even second place."
Oh shit some misogynistic asshole doesn’t want to date me because I’m a feminist whatever will I do :(
Well, I did have my heart set on finally achieving equality for all women but if it means that I it will be slightly more difficult to find a boyfriend… I guess I could stop caring about whether I’m treating like an actual human being
More devastating news out of Texas last night. The Fifth Circuit Court has ruled to close all but 7 of the state’s abortion clinics – leaving the 5.4 million women of reproductive age that live in the state with very few options.
This is Susan Robinson, one of the last people in the country who can preform late term abortions after the murder of Dr. George Tiller. This is from an awesome documentary called After Tiller, about the last 4 late-term abortion practitioners in the country. It’s a great watch and available on Netflix, would strongly recommend.
If one man can destroy everything, why can’t one girl change it?
