My blog is like Gretchen Wiener's hair: it's full of secrets. Here I reveal my oft-hidden passion for social justice, makeup/fashion, porn, and all the fandoms. My name's Julie, and I'm a white bi woman trying to learn about oppression and how to be a better ally. Please don't call me a girl, I prefer to be called a woman; however, I prefer “sir,” not “ma’am” or “miss.” Most of my posts involve trigger warnings. I’ll do my best to keep up with those. If you see anything labeled incorrectly or not at all, please let me know. In the same vein, if I say something oppressive please call me out if you feel comfortable and/or willing. I fuck up and would appreciate it, though of course no one has to.
Let’s take a moment to talk about this. I mean, because first off, “Tell cars not to hit kids.” Well, yeah, we do that all the fucking time, idiot. Ever seen signs like these?
We have classes and signs and laws about it, and people are constantly reminded. So your argument only works if we put up signs everywhere reminding assholes not to rape. But you’d rather talk about how rape victims have it coming to them.
But the dumbest part of this crap? Roads exist for cars to drive on. Children need to be careful to cross the street because they’re entering into an environment that exists specifically for something that is dangerous to them. The only way this shit is a valid comparison is if you think that bars, parties, and the world in general exists specifically for men to have sex with women. And I gotta break it to the guys who support this stupidity- your dicks are not that important. So knock off this bullshit and stop excusing rapists.
^^this. Also there is literally a “stop” sign here—something saying, “do not hit the kids this or it is yr fault if something bad happens to them.”
"for every hour you spend in class, you should be spending three hours studying" how bout i take a nap instead

How long until I stop checking behind doors and shower curtains compulsively?
as soon as you realize the freedom of not having to close the bathroom door. it’s a whole new world.
Princeton University psychologist Susan Fiske took brain scans of heterosexual men while they looked at sexualised images of women wearing bikinis. She found that the part of their brains that became activated was pre-motor - areas that usually light up when people anticipate using tools. The men were reacting to the images as if the women were objects they were going to act on. Particularly shocking was the discovery that the participants who scored highest on tests of hostile sexism were those most likely to deactivate the part of the brain that considers other people’s intentions (the medial prefrontal cortex) while looking at the pictures. These men were responding to images of the women as if they were non-human.
