it’s funny that the only people who are accused of “breeding hate” are marginalized people calling out bigotry

bigots, on the other hand, are told how ~brave~ they are for not giving in to the ~liberal agenda~ or whatever

hmm…it’s almost like…”hate breeds hate” is just a silencing tactic…to use against marginalized people…

hmmmmmmmmmmmm

have fun fetishizing the shit out of *real life* celebrities. it actually makes the people who sexualize the shit out of children’s cartoons seem normal.

did you just imply being attracted to actual real human males isn’t normal but wanting to fuck cartoon horses is

I need to reblog this again because it still makes me laugh

Even little kids have a wage gap

  • Boys, on average, spend two fewer hours doing household chores per week than girls do (they play two hours more).
  • If they live in households where children are compensated for doing chores, boys make and save more money.
  • A 2009 study conducted by University of Michigan economists found a two-hour gender disparity in responsibilities per week in a study of 3,000 kids.
  • 75 percent of girls had chores, while just 65 percent of boys do
  • This disparity in chores and free time continues into adulthood all over the world. According to the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), men “report spending more time in activities counted as leisure than women. Gender differences in leisure time are wide across OECD countries.”
  • Year after year, studies repeatedly confirm these patterns.
  • The problems women face with unequal pay and housework duties actually start in childhood.
  • The fact that boys’ chores appear to be more profitable makes the childhood chore gap even more disturbing. Turns out, parents tend to value the work that boys do more.
  • Gender stereotypes dictate these patterns.
  • men who grow up with sisters do less housework than their spouses and are also significantly more socially conservative.

Just had to bold that bottom point there because of the amount of misogynists who claim that because they have women in their family, they can’t POSSIBLY be sexist ever.

oh my fucking god

I vividly remember all the families in my church where the grade-school boys were goofing off with toys and the girls were being handed younger babies and turned into babysitters.

Boys got to be boys, but girls had to be Moms.

Really, it ‘s a serious drag that even little girls today could answer #WithoutTheWageGapIWould

The police department told BuzzFeed that it did not know if the incident would be classified as a hate crime, but said the investigation would continue for months.

quote from this article about a shooting at TWO jewish community centers TWO where the shooter said “HEIL HITLER” before killing jews

fuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyoufuck you fuckyou

HOW CAN THIS NOT BE ANTISEMITISM OR A HATE CRIME IF HE WENT TO TWO DIFFERENT LOCATIONS TO KILL JEWS AND SAID HEIL HITLER ON THE NIGHT BEFORE PASSOVER ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME

(via theroguefeminist)

He was also a grand dragon in the KKK, founded something called the White Patriot Party, tried to run radio ads back in 2010 where he ranted publically about Jews, and literally wrote a book on racial purity. If he could have worn a flashing neon sign that stated “I hate Jews and am a humongous racist and an antisemite” he most likely would have.

But yeah…let’s just hold out for some stronger evidence…

so what i get from this is that christians are intolerant to a murderous degree and anyone who uses terms like “gaystapo” unironically also fellates fascist ideology down to the hilt. clearly these are supposed to be the bad guys here.

"Christianity INVENTED imperialism, thought police, and anti-semitism… what do you think they’ll do to the LGBT+ community when given the chance?"

Wait. Whoa. What? Christianity invented imperialism, thought police, and anti-Semitism? You seriously believe this? Back up a sec… so do you know what the situation in Israel actually was in the early 1st century ACE before Christ supposedly even started preaching? (Hint: There was an empire. It executed Christ for thought crime. It wasn’t terribly fond of Jews.)

Roman anti-semitism was more… Let’s say “pragmatic”. It wasn’t because they were Jews per se, it was because they refused to bow to the emperor. Any group who resisted would have met a similar punishment.
Indeed, the early Christians faced just that punishment. Hating the Jews *for being Jews* is a different thing, philosophically.

To repeat a dumb cliche, the Romans hated everyone equally. The Romans were frequently annoyed with Judea because their strong monotheism caused integration problems, but for the most part they were left alone, allowed to worship only their own god, until The Great Revolt which ended in Rome quelling Judea’s mutiny by wiping Jerusalem off the face of the Earth in 70AD.  
Christians, though, increasingly singled out Jews because Christians decided they had killed God.  You can, like, see anti-Semitism being born Gospel by Gospel if you read the things in written-order.  Mark, Matthew/Luke, John… each one blames the Jews more and more for Christ’s death and removes Pontius Pilate more and more from guilt.  The Gospel of John outright calls Jews the Devil.  Christians would use those verses for thousands of years to justify their acts against Jewish people.  
The Romans couldn’t care less.  They had so many other places to manage.  Their default was indifference.  They didn’t search out conflict, but if they were tested they’d come smash you to the ground to keep you in line.  
But Christians had a vested cultural interest in distinguishing themselves from Jews, like how the middle child rebels to establish himself a person apart from his siblings.  And they did so by being horrible jerks and as a result, hey, anti-Semitism.  Christians created anti-Semitism because it was personal to them.  Nobody else cared that much.  
And no, Jesus was not executed for fuckin’ thought crime.  It was revealed to Rome that he was calling himself a messiah.  That means he’s an insurgent.  It meant he wanted to round up some dudes, throw the Romans out and run the place, ushering in a new age of Rome-free Israel.  It’s like some guy saying he wants to murder the President.  Unfortunately, Rome kinda crucifies those kinds of folks for breakfast.  

Iiiiiii have it on (reasonable?) authority in Rome and Jerusalem that Rome gave Judaism basically a break on it’s weirdass monotheism because it was ancient and had history behind it. Romans generally speaking never really particularly cared about other religions, and liked to integrate them into it’s own religion. That was tough with Judaism, but they were working on it - and like other kings over them before, they sacrificed to Yhwh on behalf of the emperor. The reason for the destruction of the temple, the revolt, etc. etc. is fuckin’ complicated. 
Christianity? No storied history, just a weird, weird modern cult that seemed to be doing it’s best to undermine Roman power. Part of the reason I think it went down the anti-jewish route (or that it was possible for it to) is… the destruction of Jerusalem, weirdly enough. Because the guys who survived were largely the faction who’d not been in Jerusalem, who were the ones who wanted to convert gentiles and step away from Judaism. 

Yeah, Christianity stopped being Jewish pretty much in 70AD when Jerusalem was destroyed.  All of the important folks who believed Christianity should be Jewish were hangin’ out there, and once they were gone, the church leaders who were still alive elsewhere were the folks who didn’t think being Jewish was an important part of being Christian.  So of course they’re more into the Gospels like John which talk shit about Jewish people, and not so much into listening to Jesus’ actual brother who led the church in Jerusalem because he was assassinated a few years before that anyway.  That crazy dude probably insisted Jesus was just a regular guy with some interesting ideas!  The fuck with him!

Just a thing to prove to my mom.

Please reblog if you’re a girl and you don’t shave your legs/arm pits, or you’re a girl who does shave her legs/arm pits, but doesn’t think any the less of others that do not or if you’re a guy who doesn’t care if a girl shaves or not.

If I get enough reblogs, I’ll show this to her, and maybe it will be enough to convince her to stop telling me to be ashamed of my body’s natural functions just because I’m a girl.
