Anonymous said: what do i say to men who think women are treated equally to men and that feminism is pointless? something other than the wage gap (because i've already said that and they don't seem to think that's a big deal).

internetexplorers:

because instead of teaching boys not to drug girls and rape girls we teach girls to always be on our edge and take all these precautions to ensure our own safety

because girls still get raped even if we did every single thing we were told

because “she was wearing a short skirt and tight crop top” is a good enough reason to rape a girl

because girls still get raped even when they’re wearing a burqa

because people will make up all kinds of excuses to blame the rape victim instead of the rapist

because women cannot speak out on being sexually abused by a man without facing harassment instead of sympathy

because girls can’t be out at night on their own without fearing for their lives

because a man’s biggest fear when interacting with a woman is being rejected whereas a woman’s biggest fear is being raped and/or murdered

because women cannot embrace their own sexuality without being called sluts and whores

because those photos of Nick Jonas half naked grabbing his junk were acceptable and sexy but Nicki Minaj posing in a bikini is inappropriate and slutty

because in England one incident of domestic violence is reported to the police every minute

because in South Africa one in four girls will be raped in their lifetime

because one average, 2 women a week are killed by a current or ex male partner

because women feel the need to apologise to men for not wanting to sit with them, talk to them, dance with them. they feel the need to apologise for saying “no” 

because a “no” coming out of a woman’s mouth is taken as “try harder” by men

because “don’t be such a girl” is taken as an insult whereas “you’re the man” is taken as a compliment

because Ke$ha is constantly portrayed as a stupid slut just because she likes to sing about partying but never has anyone called a male artist stupid for singing about partying 

because when Taylor Swift sings about wanting to get back together with her ex or missing her ex she is “crazy” and “obsessed” but when Robin Thicke released the song “Get Her Back” along with a video of a woman drowning, featuring real texts between him and his ex-wife, him pointing his fingers like a gun and raised to his head, and ending with a figure walking off into the distance with the words: “This is just the beginning”, all of which are disturbing and clearly manipulative and emotionally abusive actions but Robin Thicke, instead of being called a lunatic, is praised for being a “vulnerable” and “sensitive” man

because “boys will be boys” is a phrase constantly used invalidate girls speaking out on being harassed by boys 

because men fetishising women of colour is supposed to be taken as a compliment

because men are more worried about “saving the tatas” instead of the lives of women fighting breast cancer

because malala yousafzai was shot in the head for trying to go to school

because men threatened to bomb a college because a woman tried to give a feminist presentation

because no matter how many reasons I give there will be men who will brush aside what I say and tell me I’m overreacting because I am a girl

Is Junk Food Really Cheaper?
The answer is NO.
The “fact” that junk food is cheaper than real food has become a reflexive part of how we explain why so many Americans are overweight, particularly those with lower incomes. I frequently read confident statements like, “when a bag of chips is cheaper than a head of broccoli …” or “it’s more affordable to feed a family of four at McDonald’s than to cook a healthy meal for them at home.”
(via sunfoundation)

this bullshit fills me with a very specific kind of rage. so, TIME TO DEBUNK!
that meal from mcdonalds takes virtually no time to acquire AND is available almost anywhere.
the second meal? that “salad” is lettuce … with nothing else, not even dressing unless its just olive oil or some milk i guess? gross.
also thats the price of each serving, not an entire loaf of bread, a bottle of olive oil, etc. that stuff adds up which means you have to have a lot of money at one time to buy it all.
that meal probably took an hour and a half to make, which is a long fucking time when you work multiple jobs or are caring for a lot of people or dont have help! seriously, if you are a single parent of three who works, is spending an hour and a half every night preparing a meal a likely option?
same with beans and rice! also, you know whats a fucking bummer? eating beans and rice every night because you are poor. ask any person who has done it and they will tell you (you can start with me).
there is a “nutrition” argument here that lacks a follow up: poor people are more likely to be doing physical labor and need more than 571 calories per meal.
you know who is less likely to know how to bake or prepare a chicken? people without access to the internet, or libraries, or who werent taught how to by their parents because their parents worked all the time. access to healthy foods is a classist issue and classism is cyclical, you fucking morons.
seriously, these sorts of infographics make me want to fucking flip tables. do you know why people don’t eat more fresh fruits and vegetables? because fresh fruits and vegetables are expensive, because they take a long time to prepare, because they dont live near a grocery store that has a decent produce section, because they dont have reliable transportation to get groceries to and from the grocery store, because they dont have the energy to plan all of the shit that is involved in making healthy, intentional, filling, balanced meals. basically: poor people get fucked, and then we get BLAMED for being lazy.
eating “healthy”, aka access to fresh fruits and vegetables, is a privilege, first, foremost, always. so fuck you new york times and your ignorant goddamn infographic.
there are SYSTEMATIC REASONS that we do not have equal access to fresh fruits and vegetables. they are very REAL problems. besides, you know, systematic poverty in america, the total mis-distribution of farm subsidies is a perfect place to start. read about that, then either get bent or start working on the actual problem.

Handwriting is so cool cause it’s like the written equivalent of the sound of someone’s voice.

Man, I hope my voice doesn’t sound as bad as my handwriting looks, that would just be depressing
