this is what i just picked up from the grocery store. it cost $32. Thirty. two. dollars. for 1 pineapple, 2 bags of grapes, a small container of raspberries, 1 soft drink and 2/$1 nuts…. 

do you know how much junk food i could have for $32? do you have any clue how much McDonald’s you can get for $32?

stop shaming fat people poorer than you or people poorer than you in general for not eating healthier. stop lying about how cheap it is or how it’s comparable to fast food. just stop.

!!!!!!!

K like my grocery store has two buckets of strawberries for $5, $2 bag of grapes, and a pineapples like $3 at the most what is this nonsense. Was that soft drink $17??

^ lol exactly, OP is a liar :p

Even if OP went to Whole Foods or Fresh Market, this seems highly implausible.

Even at 5 bucks a pop for each item except the nuts, the tab would be like 26 bucks.

What’s the rest of the story? Is OP living in some highly secluded area where shipping fresh produce in is costly enough to make this happen?

Not to mention that people who are actually poor and not just trying to make some dumbass point wouldn’t buy only name brand unless they were a complete moron. Every single item pictured is a name brand, and therefore more expensive. All of those items have a non-name brand option available. If you really only had $32 to buy groceries with, you’d be getting the cheaper items. Not purposefully picking out the most expensive stuff you can find.

It’s Monday. I’m going home at 6pm and a middle aged man and a teenage boy are the only people left on the bus with me. I consider the fact that because the driver is also a man I am the only person left on the bus with the correct genetic makeup for boobs. I’m automatically scared, scared because of my own anatomy. I wonder how old I was when I realized that my own body was going to be the cause of the constant anxiety and fear I feel in situations like this. I get off at the last stop and the older man smiles at me while following me up the street. His smile drips, drips, drips and my heart is pounding, pounding, pounding. He turns off down another road, but I run the rest of the way home.

Not all men.

I’m at home on a Tuesday, beginning to plan the travels I want to go on next year. I dream of wandering the streets and meeting strangers. I just can’t wait to escape the city I’ve lived in for 17 long years. But… my mum is hesitant. She’s forever worried about the danger that being a young girl traveling alone can bring. I’ll be alone and she’s scared. Surely I’m invincible. I feel invincible. But I know, I know this danger is real and I can’t help but think to myself, if I feel unsafe in my own city, how am i going to feel in a strange place with strange men who don’t speak the same language as me? If I was my brother planning this, I would probably just be wondering if European girls are going to be hot.

Not all men.

Wednesday is a beautiful sunny day but I’ve always been told that I don’t have a “nice enough body” to wear a bikini on the beach. Ever since I was 6 years old I’ve thought that having tummy fat was ugly. That skin that doesn’t have a perfectly golden glow is undesirable. I amble to a clear patch of sand in my one piece and I can feel pairs of eyes latching onto me. Hairy men in speedos who I don’t look twice at eat into my body with their stares. I’m a piece of meat. I am a piece of meat? I am here for their amusement. Please don’t let me be eaten alive.

Not all men.

Thursday night two friends and I are walking to our god damn school dance when we hear “Jesus look at you! You sluts heading to a pole?” These words snarl out of the mouth of a respectably dressed man and we stop in horror. Shivers roll up my back in fear. It’s dark. We are alone. What. Do. We. Do??? One of us pulls the finger back. I can never be sure how quickly a sexist man can get angry so we walk quickly away. We’re angry, so so angry. But also so… deflated. I wonder if we deserve this shame.

Not all men.

Sitting on the internet, Friday night and scrolling down my Facebook newsfeed:

“Haha, good job at the game today bro. You RAPED them!”
“Damn with tits like that, you’re asking for it :P”

Another sexist comment…
Another sexist comment…
Another sexist comment…

I’m shrinking and shrinking and shrinking and I want to CRY because these boys don’t realize how small they make me feel with just pressing a few keys. I see these boys on the streets, I talk to these boys, I laugh with these boys. Dear GOD, dear GOD i hope these boys don’t think actions speak louder than words…

Not all men.

Three rules that have been drilled into me since I was young run through my mind at 1.30am on a Satur… Sunday Morning:

-Don’t ever talk to strange men
-Don’t ever be alone at night in a strange place
-Don’t ever get into a car with a stranger

I break all 3 of these laws as I pull open the taxi door. Making light conversation with the driver, he doesn’t see my sweaty hand clutching the small pocket knife I keep hidden on me at all times. He doesn’t even realize the fear I feel at his mere presence. He cannot comprehend it, he never will. How easy would this 15 minute car ride be if I was born a boy?

Not all men.

It comes to Sunday, another snoozy, sleepy, Sunday and someone has the AUDACITY to tell me not all men are rapists. I say nothing.

I’m a 17 year old girl.
When I am walking alone and it’s dark, it’s all men.
When I am in a car with a man I don’t know well, it’s all men.
When men drunkenly leer at me on the streets, it’s all men.
When a boy won’t leave me alone at a party, it’s all men.

Not all men are rapists. But for a young girl like me? Every one of them has the potential to be.

Not.
All.
Men.

a piece i wrote for an english assignment about my personal experiences with rape culture, in particular with the saying “not all men” which i know has been makin a lot of controversy on the internet recently! idk just wanted to share (via trueho)

This is some insanely paranoid shit

i do not remember being this paranoid at seventeen

(via bluesigma)

Well, this is probably going to make my top ten of ridiculously obnoxious and stupid posts on tumblr… Seriously, and I am being serious here, I think OP needs to go talk to someone about her paranoia, ideally a professional.

(via poorpoorpitifulme)

This is satire, right?

(via just-smith)

Jeez…so the “not all men” argument is invalid because nothing has ever actually happened to you? Really? Oh wait, one dude said something incredibly rude to you, but then you walked away and nothing happened. Wow. Does this mean that we can now convict people of doing nothing? That’s some shit right there.

Just because you’re near a man doesn’t mean that he’s thinking about you. How convinced are you that you’re in everyone’s spotlight?

Btw, actions do speak louder than words you immature, self-absorbed child.

The history of film in one scene

"This film is looking a little too Japanese."

"It’s set in Heian era Japan."

"So what are you trying to say?"

"That black people haven’t been invented yet?"

"This film is looking a little too white."

"It’s set in prehistoric France during the time of the Cro-Magnons."

"So what are you trying to say?"

"That black people haven’t been invented yet?"

"This film is looking a little too Latin."

"It’s set in Tenochtitlan."

"So what are you trying to say?"

"That black people haven’t been invented yet?"

"This film is looking a little too Indian."

"It’s set in 8th century Varinasi."

"So what are you trying to say?"

"That black people haven’t been invented yet?"

"This film is looking a little too Chinese."

"It’s set in Qing dynasty China."

"So what are you trying to say?"

"That black people haven’t been invented yet?"

The above comment is, well, not quite in line with the gifset. Black people were in London in the 1800’s. That’s what Gus is pointing out. Setting movies in places and times that should have a black population, but the movie pretends that only white people exist. That is the problem. That is what he’s talking about. And it happens with alarming frequency.

It is a bit ridiculous to expect a movie to show a population that wouldn’t have been in place at the time/place in which the movie is set. But this is taking a legitimate complaint made under applicable circumstances and trying to make it wrong.

The above comment is a strawman argument. It has changed what the argument is about in order to make themselves right.

Maybe 5k - 10k people in a city of over 3 million…

That’s a literal spit in the bucket.

Yeah, it would be a little white.

There were more 20,000 by the end of the 1700’s. The population only increased as time went on. By the end of the 1800’s, it was much more than “spit in the bucket.” Ignoring it and pretending that London only had white people is absolutely ridiculous. And, as someone else pointed out, there is also the fact that it ignores other races as well which made up a significant portion of the population at the time.

The argument that setting it in the 1800’s makes it okay to only cast white people is extremely flawed. Not all social justice issues are crazy, over the top attempts at being PC or the result of someone wanting to be a victim. Sometimes, they are actually real issues that need to be addressed and fixed. This is one of the latter.

#cleopatra with the nose knocked off. I wonder if people still think she was European like the movies betray…

I still think it’s one of the most desperate things whites have done to blacks and to black history. The disrespect is outrageous. They came to our country and mentally could not fathom how these black civilizations could be so great. They literally rode through our lands and shot the noses off of our statues. Why? So that the statues would no longer resemble the African people and they could LIE about the origins of Egypt and countless other civilizations. It was a widespread practice. It’s why statues of Pharaoh’s and their wives have no noses. It’s why the Sphinx has no nose. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that the noses had fell off due to time and poor craftsmanship! They have literally tried to teach us that our ancestors were shitty builders of noses just to hide their malicious destruction of our heritage. European fears of African peoples had to come from somewhere. I want to know what part of the history is missing. There’s something that they don’t want to be told.

The shade is real

i was taught that the noses fell off as well and actually continued to believe this. in retrospect this makes no sense, considering greek/roman statues pretty much always have intact noses whereas egyptian ones are always conveniently missing theirs. thank you for pointing this out to me, i hadn’t even made that connection until now.

The bolded was me too and I am seriously embarrassed that I never even thought about how that could be false.

Damnnn. I hate myself for not realizing this.

    I hate myself even more, since I know the ancient Egyptians created their sculptural works with the idea of permanence in mind. They were literally built to last throughout the afterlife. Notice how the majority of their monumental sculpture is stone-bound, without any protruding elements or breakable appendages. That’s because many of these sculptures were intended to house the life-force (Ka) of those they portrayed. Of their favorite materials were basalt and diorite, both extremely hard stones that were incredibly difficult to carve. Meaning a nose just doesn’t “fall off” because of “poor craftsmanship,” you would literally have to take a hammer to it. Fuckers.

I’m embarrassed and ashamed to add myself to the list of people who where taught that the noses “fell off” as a child and never once stopped to think about how incongruous that was to everything I had been taught about the Egyptian civilizations and their propensity for lasting works of art.

I was never taught this. In fact, by the time I entered an integrated school setting, the Egyptian portion of history was usually brief and skipped until the Roman Empire entered the story.

That’s not what happened! Please, use a source for your information! I understand that Tumblr has a wide variety of hatred for White supremacy, but the loss of the nose wasn’t the result of White people!

The colonisation of Napoleon happened 50 years before the whole incident, Egypt was still under Ottoman control, a Muslim empire.

Legends have passed over hundreds of years regarding the simple omission in this photograph of the Sphinx and the Pyramid of Khafre, part of the Giza Pyramid (or Great Pyramid) complex in Egypt. Where is the Sphinx’s nose? Many of us have heard the tale that a cannonball fired by Napoleon’s soldiers hit the nose and caused it to break off. Sketches of the Sphinx by the Dane Frederic Louis Norden were created in 1737 and published in 1755, well before the era of Napoleon. However, these drawings illustrate the Sphinx without a nose and clearly contradicts the legend. So what really happened?

The Egyptian Arab Muslim historian and theologist Al-Maqrizi in the 15th century told that the nose was actually destroyed by a Fanatical Sufi Muslim named Muhammad Sa’im al-Dahr. In 1378 CE, Egyptian peasants made offerings to the Great Sphinx in the hope of controlling the flood cycle, which would result in a successful harvest. Outraged by this blatant show of devotion, and so called idolatry, Sa’im al-Dahr destroyed the nose and was later executed for vandalism for this act. 

I am a Muslim, but I’m not trying to defame my own faith, but this is still a fact! White people did not vandalize it, a person did it based on religious grounds! Egypt was well under Islamic control and Napoleon didn’t reach Egypt at the time the nose was destroyed.

Read your history!

Also do any of these morons realise that Egypt was not a society of Sub-Saharan Africans

or that Cleopatra was actually Greek?  She was european, deal with it you revisionist crybabies

Struck through all the nonsense.

And yes, Cleopatra was descended from Alexander the Great. HER NAME IS FUCKING GREEK, FOR GOD’S SAKE.

She considered herself to be Egyptian though, with a deep love for the Egyptian people.

But her heritage, mmm, European. Sorry, Afrocentrists.

Not just that, but like the Egyptian dynasties before her, hers were so hung up on blood purity that they adopted the royal custom of inbreeding.  Cleo herself married one of her brothers, then upon his death, married another.   There was likely not one drop of Egyptian blood in her.

You know, it occurs to me that these same people today would slam her for cultural appropriation. I mean, she was the only member of her family to learn to speak Egyptian! STUPID WHITEY.

You know, I wonder if the people who present themselves as being oh-so-knowledgable about Cleopatra (the ones claiming the statue is noseless because of white people) could even tell us what Cleopatra’s real name was (“Cleopatra” was actually a title).

Dunno, but were black people THAT prominent in 1888 London as they are today?

Maybe not as populous as today, but I don’t really see how that changes the issue at all.

During the 1800’s, new shipping lanes were established that increased the black population due to the need for new dockworkers, shiphands, etc. There was also an influx of black students, businessmen, sportsmen, and professionals. More and more black people were gaining positions as doctors, politicians, and activists. Not to mention how many black families had been living there for several generations. Many servants and laborers were black, as well.

If you set a film or show in London during the 1800’s and completely ignore the black population, there’s really no excuse for it beyond ignorance.

Support The Owen/Aurini Team creating The Sarkeesian Effect

Friend sent me a link to this and I wanted to share, I haven’t seen it on tumblr yet but if people don’t know about it, it seems like a really good project. I’d want to see the SJWs exposed and I intend to donate some money myself when I come into some in the next few days. I hope that if you can’t support this project then you at least raise awareness to it.

So, this guy goes to my sister’s school where they’re doing the awesome “I need feminism because” project. At her school, students/teachers/staff are photographed holding up signs explaining why they need feminism, and the pictures are posted onto a facebook page. 

Then this guy posts this picture onto their facebook page with the caption “I am one with your struggle.” About 100 people liked it, which makes me really fucking angry. 

Yes, I, an upper-middle class white girl, realize and recognize that other human beings are so, so, so much more oppressed than I am. I am so so lucky! When it comes to systematic oppression, I have it really easy. I am undeniably and indubitably privileged. But hey, is it a crime to speak up for myself as a human being and recognize that some shitty things that have happened to me and happen to me every day tie directly to misogyny? No. Am I constantly shamed and mocked and yelled at by white cis-gendered straight boys for it? Yes. 

Why? Because of a culture where girls can literally never ever ever EVER speak up for themselves without boys getting offended, trying to talk over them, and victimizing themselves (“the patriarchy affects me too!1!!!!1!!”). Because of a culture where when I try to point out something that’s wrong with our society, I get shut down for fucking ANYTHING that I say. 

Boys like this are condescending. They illigitimize the feminist movement, they play it off as a joke, because they literally do not realize that sexism STILL EXISTS and their rape jokes, and “go to the kitchen and make me a sandwich” jokes, and their sexualization of literally anything and everything are part of the problem. 

OBVIOUSLY sexism doesn’t only affect upper-middle class white girls. OBVIOUSLY upper-middle class white girls have it easier than a lot of other people. But wait a second—I’m an upper-middle class white girl. And I have been catcalled, leered at, grabbed, poked and sexually harassed by boys and men at my school, on the street, and in the subway or bus or whatever. But who really cares, right? It’s not like sexism and the patriarchy and misogyny and rape culture and all the other shit that affect every woman ACTUALLY EXIST. Oh wait, yes they do. 

Fuck this guy. And fuck every guy who tries to shut girls down for speaking up for themselves. Because feminism matters, and it is totally legitimate, and everyone needs feminism, regardless of ethnicity or race or sexual orientation or class or how much money their parents make—everyone needs feminism, and this guy needs to realize that. 

You argument is basically "people criticize feminism and my personal struggle and thus I need feminism because they shouldn’t be allowed to do that."

Because of a culture where girls can literally never ever ever EVER speak up for themselves without boys getting offended, trying to talk over them, and victimizing themselves (“the patriarchy affects me too!1!!!!1!!”)”

Not one anti-feminist or men’s rights activist has ever said the patriarchy affects them in any way. Probably because the patriarchy doesn’t exist.

"Boys like this are condescending. They illigitimize the feminist movement”

You think boys like this invalidate feminism? No, its feminists who invalidate feminism. Its feminists who make a big deal out of non-issues that make people despise your entire movement. You have all lost sight of the individual and instead choose to marginalize an entire gender, dismissing any kind of suffering or problems we try to address for our own health and understanding of our own gender. It is feminists who pull fire alarms to interrupt peaceful meetings because of an assumed threat even though they had no idea what the meeting was even about.

It’s not like sexism and the patriarchy and misogyny and rape culture and all the other shit that affect every woman ACTUALLY EXIST. Oh wait, yes they do.”

Oh wait, sexism affects both genders. Patriarchy doesn’t exist considering if you live in the first world all basic human rights and legal protection is shared by both genders. Misogyny exists just as much as misandry, there are always going to be assholes. And according to RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, rape culture doesn’t fucking exist.

I feel like I might have to repeat myself so you understand:

RAINN, the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization, has officially stated that rape culture doesn’t fucking exist.

And fuck every guy who tries to shut girls down for speaking up for themselves.”

Well, it kind of depends on the context of the discussion. Was she speaking up and defending pedophilia or child rape?

Because feminism matters, and it is totally legitimate, and everyone needs feminism”

Feminism matters and is just about as legitimate as Creationism is. And nobody need Creationism.

lol

"Boys like this are condescending. They illigitimize the feminist movement"

If your entire movement is made illegitimate by an instance of mild mockery… WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU ABOUT THE MOVEMENT?

Obviously the only reason it upsets you is because the point he’s making is true. You’re not oppressed. That’s the end of it. Nail in coffin. Shut the fuck up.

I actually want to know what kind of backwards school adopts such a cultish system where its students are required to make “I need feminism because…” signs as part of a project and grade. I mean unless this is a feminist established school, which to my knowledge none such exist, but this is akin to a public school requiring that its students make “I need Jesus because…” posters, even if the students don’t identify as Christians. So warped…so fucked up. Even if this is a gender studies class, this is cult behaviour and indoctrination, not the reverence of free thinking and critical idea formation, just the opposite.

-Mog

I read it as a voluntary project rather than one you’d get graded on. But I could be wrong there.

Also, I just can’t get over the hot dog on his shirt. For some reason, it’s cracking me up.

Go out, find someone you really like, get to know most of them, then get ignored cause they are actually married and just wanted to use you as a booty call to fulfill their other half of their sexuality.

nope. this is wrong. the game was not intended to be pro choice.

please don’t encourage fucking over a creator based on the words of someone else.

Even if it were true, it still doesn’t make it right for you to pirate their game*.

If you actually felt that strongly..don’t partake of their creative output.
