whenever someone says “bi means two so *biphobe noises*.” i like to imagine them biting into a jellyfish and being remarkably surprised to find they are neither made of jelly nor fish

This is the best thing I’ve read all day.

I would give that kid so many bonus points. 100% A+

I have no respect for people that are “skeptical” of bisexual teens. You are the reason so many of us bisexual adults spent our teen years in one closet or another. Dealing with that shit was some of the most damaging stuff I’ve had to deal with and I will NOT sit idly by while you do this to more kids. So kindly keep your opinions in the garbage where they belong.

THE ONGOING SAGA OF THE FRAGILE WHITE

The Daily Show aired its long awaited segment on the Washington, D.C., NFL team name, in which fans were confronted by Natives on the set.
Before it even aired, the segment proved controversial. The satirical cable television news program had recruited team fans for the segment via Twitter; four were ultimately chosen to participate. But those participants told the Washington Post they felt like they were attacked.
Kelli O’Dell, who says it was unfair for The Daily Show to have her debate Amanda Blackhorse—the lead plaintiff in Blackhorse v. Pro-Football, Inc., which resulted in cancelling six of the team’s trademarks—says she felt like she was placed “in danger.” O’Dell later called authorities to pull The Daily Show tapes she had consented to appear on:

Two days later, O’Dell said she called D.C. police and tried to submit a police report, but authorities told her no crime had been committed.


People want their right to be racist. But the minute they approach facing real life consequences—and mild ones, given what they should expect for years of violence and slurs—look how they shake and cry. Look how they flee and fly to the po-lice, understanding fully the institutional role played by cops.

she tried to file a police report, hahahahaha! foolish.


I agreed to be on a TV show, and now they want to put it on TV! I’m calling 911!Amazing.

I don’t like feminists

thisismanicjanae:

The fact that feminist have to exist is bad. I know. But why not equality for everyone, not just women?
Every feminist I have ever met contradicts themselves every other sentence.
We have bigger problems to worry about. Get over yourself.

Roughly half the world experiences gender based discrimination, with the other half experiencing negative kickback from many of those same oppressive systems.

But right, we have bigger problems. Of course.

-makes a noncommittal shrug- eeeeh? I have IDEAS for future books, but nothing concrete. 

And this years NaNoWriMo project won’t be connected to it. 

There it is.

The final line of my book. Or, well, at least the rough draft.

I feel like crying.

I don’t think that word means what you think it means…

Do we have to explain to you why the prices are different? Do you not understand the commentary being made here?

>I am a libtard that still believes in the wage gap!
is the message I’m getting
Just a reminder:
"The Wage Gap"
The Wage Gap is a myth.
Women Now a Majority in American Workplaces
Labor force participation rate for men has never been lower.
Women in some cases make more than men.
And their husbands dont have a problem with it either.
Women CHOOSE to stay away from STEM field

(44/56)*100 = 78% hours worked
Women work (44/56)x100=78% as much time as men.
Women work (44/56)x100=78% as much time as men.

Did you REALLY just use “tard” as an insult? 1) Super ableist. 2) Wow, middle school much?
And no, it hasn’t been “debunked.”
Not debunked, misrepresented, as it is a complicated issue. It’s honestly more accurate to call it a PAY gap than a WAGE gap, since there are a myriad of factors at play here. Women DO, on average, make less money than men.
That is indisputable, and the margins widen when you include factors of race, disability, and sexuality. People of color, disabled people, LGBTQIAP+ people all make EVEN LESS due to intersectional oppressions. 
Here’s a good starter resource on it. 
IF you would like some more in depth reading:
This one is from Stanford about the Gender Pay Gap
This is a New York Times article looking at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s report on the topic.
This one is from the International Trade Union Confederation 
This one is from Oxford, titled Up the Down Staircase: Women’s Upward Mobility and the Wage Penalty for Occupational Feminization
You can also look at the US Census’s look at the Pay Gap
Or the Institute for Women’s Policy Research
Even the United States Government Accountability Office has some information on it.
The reasons WHY the pay gap exist are varied and complicated, but all of them MATTER and don’t make the issue go away.

Quote
"

Some authors try to pass off subtext, allegories, “undefined relationships,” and “love that’s open to interpretation” as equal to blatant textual evidence that a character is MOGII-identified. While that was really the most people could hope for in terms of representation 50, 40, or 30 years ago, that’s not the case anymore. For example, Malinda Lo has written four novels picked up by mainstream publishers, none of which feature cishet protagonists. Ash (Little, Brown 2009) is a lesbian retelling of Cinderella with more fantasy elements, Huntress (Little, Brown 2011) is a prequel to Ash that features two queer female protagonists, and her duology Adaptation (Little, Brown 2012) is a science-fiction story with a bisexual female protagonist. Lo has been a guest at speaking events, book panels, book conferences, and signing tours since first being published in 2009; her books have sold well and all four of them are either already published or soon to be published in the U.K. and Australia.


Despite the success of Adaptation and other Young Adult sci-fi books with one or more canon bisexual major characters such as Otherbound by CorinnBe Duyvis, Saga by Brian K. Vaughan (which is a graphic novel series, but still worth noting in this list), The Summer Prince by Alaya Dawn Johnson, and Love In The Time of Global Warming by Francesca Lia Block, people are spending time writing articles about whether Divergent is the science fiction genre’s first bisexual allegory. It seems backwards to congratulate books for having possible queer interpretations of characters when books with canon queer characters, many of which are written by MOGII-identified authors, exist and are going unnoticed.

Not my pic, but I believe this is true.

Has this honestly EVER happened to anyone EVER? 
Also, who gives a shit about “chivalry”? If your politeness is gender based and modeled after archaic knighthood ideals, then maybe consider, I dunno, just treating women like PEOPLE instead of PRINCESSES.

theflutteryay said: When did you start writing your novel? I'm just curious. Will you let your followers know when it's published? Because I would really like to read it. Non-binary folks are still kind of rare in fiction.

It was actually my NaNoWriMo project last year. Then I got lazy and neglected it for months. XDDD I will absolutely let everyone know when it is ready for publication.
