A twenty-something diurnal swabbie/nocturnal student living in the Devil’s Asshole, AZ. Much of what I post is related to intersectional feminism, current events, a bit of science, cartoons and personal/juvenile things. Know this, if you follow.
I’m so sick of that anti-animal consumption post with the “We’d have enough food to feed every impoverished person!” crap.
We already have enough food.
People aren’t starving in Chicago because the McDonald’s down the street ran out of food.
Supply was never the issue.
Access always is.

Holy shit I didn’t know this about Queen. It’s true.

Men want what they want.
So much of our culture caters to giving men what they want. A high school student invites model Kate Upton to attend his prom, and he’s congratulated for his audacity. A male fan at a Beyoncé concert reaches up to the stage to slap her ass because her ass is there, her ass is magnificent, and he wants to feel it. The science fiction fandom community is once again having a heated discussion, across the Internet, about the ongoing problem of sexual harassment at conventions — countless women are telling all manner of stories about how, without their consent, they are groped, ogled, lured into hotel rooms under false pretenses, physically lifted off the ground, and more.
But men want what they want. We should all lighten up.
It’s hard not to feel humorless as a woman and a feminist, to recognize misogyny in so many forms, some great and some small, and know you’re not imagining things. It’s hard to be told to lighten up because if you lighten up any more, you’re going to float the fuck away. The problem is not that one of these things is happening, it’s that they are all happening, concurrently and constantly.
These are just songs. They are just jokes. They are just movies. It’s just a hug. They’re just breasts. Smile, you’re beautiful. Can’t a man pay you a compliment? In truth, this is all a symptom of a much more virulent cultural sickness — one where women exist to satisfy the whims of men, one where a woman’s worth is consistently diminished or entirely ignored."
