On Autonomy and the Role of Men in Feminism, and Women Only Spaces or Events
UNSW Tharunka, Special Wom*ns Issue
I think that male feminists are considered crazy by some people, and/or that they’re insincere, really just trying to look good to women. I wouldn’t comment on how often this is so compared to any tendency for people to think of female feminists as “crazy.” Men don’t risk losing friends if they speak out a lot about our society being patriarchical?
Wtf Favour, now I might be talking to myself when I talk on here. If you read this, woudja fuckin let me know if you visit my blog.
I see what you mean about my eyes being nice. I spent like an hour brushing & flossing, pacing all the while (lol, that might be some of it, some of why I take so long, I’m stretching/exercising while I brush & floss, always pace while doing it) in this bathroom that had some natural light in it, a couple different mirrors. I see that my face isn’t ugly/has some nice features. Lol, maybe I even see that I have, LOL, nice eyelashes. It is ugly in spots though. The way I was looking naked this morning, at the moment my body is above mediocre (I did skip all but breakfast yesterday [lol, maybe I shouldn’t say “at the moment,” I fuckin just ate 9 jalepeno & cheese bagles…LOL, I fuckin swear]). Alright, point is, I’ve been shamefully wasting some decent shit, and I’m pathetic if I don’t find a pretty girl here at girl-packed college when I get healthy. …Damn, lol, rereading, this sounds a bit sorry, I shouldn’t post this :)
people say that can’t relate to an all-black show or they can’t relate to a woman protagonist. PoC, women, etc. have been relating to white characters and male characters forever. Why don’t you have the capacity to relate to characters unlike you?
Gentlemen. This is what rape culture is like:
Imagine you have a Rolex watch. Nice fancy Rolex, you bought it because you like the way it looks and you wanted to treat yourself. And then you get beaten and mugged and your Rolex is stolen. So you go to the police. Only, instead of investigating the crime, the police want to know why you were wearing a Rolex instead of a regular watch. Have you ever given a Rolex to anyone else? Is it possible you wanted to be mugged? Why didn’t you wear long sleeves to cover up the Rolex if you didn’t want to be mugged?
And then after that, everywhere you go, there are constant jokes about stealing your Rolex. People you don’t even know whistle at your Rolex and make jokes about cutting your hand off to get it. The media doesn’t help either; it portrays people who wear Rolexes as flamboyant assholes who secretly just want someone to come along and take that Rolex off their hands. When damn, all you wanted was to wear a nice watch without getting harassed for it. When you complain that you are starting to feel unsafe, people laugh you off and say that you are too uptight. Never mind you got violently attacked for the crime of wearing a friggin time piece.
Imagining all that? It sucks, doesn’t it.
Now imagine you could never take the Rolex off.” —

Oop oop oopity oop did someone drop a bunch of truth over here?
This idea that you “have” to forgive people in order to move on or whatever is complete and utter bullshit. You don’t “have” to forgive anyone in order to live a life that’s fulfilling to you.
lmao its always the crustiest and wackest of white boys who are quick to say that they dont date women of color like theres a long ass line of fine black women at their door desperate to ask for their cool ranch dorito stained hand in marriage
Kinda odd, the computers at OSU are absolutely horrid. They freeze up constantly.
Dammit, missed that you did comment - egg on my fuckin fugly face.
I get so worked up with wanting to have you like me, it’d be fine, but it distracts me from boring ass schoolwork. …
Fuck you Damn me, I guess I’m fuckin ridiculous.
fun fact: iraq, pakistan, afghanistan and saudi arabia have a higher percentage of women in the government than the us & the uk
another fun fact: white people tend to get very angry when you point this out to them
I don’t know about the second statement (maybe anyone getting emotional wouldn’t think to assume that in the case of all four of these countries there are quota systems in place that ensure and promote female representation), this does do a terrific job of highlighting how America’s political system/the American electorate has a problem. Dunno, maybe that we’re hypocritical if we pushed Iraq and Afghanistan to have these quotas.
dumb cunt. in that order.

I wonder how common freckles are on people with Mongoloid features. Her face is so beautiful below.
I want to hear your voice. Even though it’s often hard for me to speak, I want to talk to you on the phone. You’re all pretty and lusious. :), oh lordy me. I’m not completely certain about the last four digits of your phone number. …I’m not getting ridiculous Favour, I’m just saying. …Oh man, I hope you’re feeling good when you read this, hope you’re feeling good tommorrow.
