So I know I only have a very small number of followers, but if I ever post ANYTHING that triggers you, offends you, or just makes you feel I need to be educated PLEASE let me know! I will always be willing to talk about it, and apologize and tag/delete the post. Also if you just wanna talk for no reason I love to meet new people!

Rule 1: always post the rules

Rule 2: answer the questions the person who tagged you asked, and write 10 new ones

Rule 3: tag 10 people and link them to the post

1: What drew you to this site?

I had heard a lot about it and had seen some cool/funny stuff but then I saw this post and I felt like it was a really good place to be. So now I’m here.

2: What is the greatest piece of music you have ever listened to?

This is so hard! I guess I would have to say Blues for Greasy with Lester Young.

3: Does your cyberself differ much from your physical self?

Meh. I feel like they used to be different but more recently I’ve been trying to bring them more together. I want to feel like I’m being honest all the time.

4: What was the last thing to make you cry?

My girlfriend was walking to work and a dog that had it’s whole back end crushed and paralyzed was just set out on the side of the street by someone in a car who then drove away and left it to die. My girlfriend had to go to work but luckily someone else was able to stay with it until animal control could come and take it away to euthanize it Anyway, even though I wasn’t there, hearing about it was enough to make me cry. Just the thought that there are people who would abandon something helpless in it’s time of need makes me so sad.

5: What is the one meal you could eat for the rest of your life?

My usual at Fenton’s Creamery. A French Dip with curly fries and a swiss chocolate malt. That would leave me satisfied no matter how many times I eat it.

6: The power of flight or the power of telepathy?

The power of flight, hands down! I would hate to hear everyone’s thoughts and know what they were thinking about me all the time.

7: Who’s your go-to Mario Kart character?

Yoshi!!!

8: What is your favourite story (of any kind)?

Something sad. I love sad stories. I kind of feel like our ability to be happy is defined by our ability to comprehend true sadness.

9: What was the last thing you did for someone else?

I just paid for my girlfriends manicure and pedicure.

10: What was the last thing you did for yourself?

I just went to Popeye’s because it’s Tuesday and I can gorge on an unhealthy amount of fried chicken for a small amount of money.

OK now 10 questions

  1. What is your favorite poem?
  2. What is the last good book you read?
  3. What is your favorite restaurant to eat at?
  4. If you could live anywhere in the world for free where would you live?
  5. If you could get any real job in the world and you would have the experience and background necessary to do it, what job would you pick?
  6. What do you want right now, in this moment?
  7. Are you as honest with yourself as you are to other people?
  8. If you were a superhero what would your greatest villain’s name be?
  9. When was the last time you got so excited you couldn’t control your own body?
  10. What is your favorite thing to do with your friends?

Now I have to tag 10 people…I apologize in advance. (No pressure, idc if you do this or not)

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

The Secrets of Cats is an RPG from Evil Hat about playing cats who reign in the supernatural secrets in a small town in Maine. It’s fun and simple and equal parts Tim Burton and Robert C. O’Brien.

Columbia University Student Will Drag Her Mattress Around Campus Until Her Rapist Is Gone

"I think the act of carrying something that is normally found in our bedroom out into the light is supposed to mirror the way I’ve talked to the media and talked to different news channels, etc," Emma continues in the full video which you can watch here. 

So, I just want to go into HOW MUCH Columbia and the NYPD has failed, and revictimized, Emma Sulkowitz.

In her school hearing, Sulkowitz ” had to explain to the three administrators on the panel how anal rape worked. She told them she had been hit across the face, choked and pinned down, but, she said, one still seemed confused about how it was possible for someone to penetrate her there without lubricant. Sulkowicz said she had to draw them a diagram.”

"Her best friend was meant to be at the hearing; Sulkowicz had chosen her as her one “supporter.” But her friend was kicked out of that role for talking about the case, according to Sulkowicz, in violation of the university’s confidentiality policy. As punishment, her friend was also put on probation and made to write two reflection papers: one from the perspective of Sulkowicz and another from the accused."

FROM THE PERSPECTIVE
OF HER FRIEND’S RAPIST

- Two other women at Columbia have accused this guy of sexual assault/rape. But he’s been found not responsible in all instances, and is still on campus

- When she went to the police, one officer said: “”You invited him into your room. That’s not the legal definition of rape.”

- Another officer told her friends, who came with her: ““For every single rape I’ve had, I’ve had 20 that are total bull——,” he added. “It’s also my type of job to get to the truth. If that means being harsh about it, that’s what I do.”

And that’s.
Why.
People.
Don’t.
REPORT.

I want to set literally everything on fire.

This is why almost every single big college is under investigation for Title IX compliance but I don’t have faith anything will change.

Things I do that I wonder if other people do:

Stand in the middle of a packed crowd, breathe in really deep, and just think about the fact that a little bit of sweat from all of these people has evaporated into the air so that now they are all apart of me. All of them inside me. It makes me feel connected, like we are all one in that moment.

Based on this (x). Conclusion: they’re still fuckers. 

Or maybe daddy works all week to provide us money for food and clothes

Because daddy’s labour is arbitrarily placed at a higher value and the work he does all week is no more important or legitimate than domestic labour. The capital value of the same relative labour is dependent on the gender of the person its performed by, and the capital values of different, specific kinds of labour, are dependent on the gender of the person who usually performs them in a society. The work easily available to women is priced cheap or free, and the work women have to struggle harder to get is still worth less capital than that same work when performed by men. 
In short, daddy gets to choose what he gets to work on, and the job he gets to choose can easily generate more than enough money to feed and shelter more than one person.  In this scenario, women still have to do work, but are often forced to depend on others to support them, let alone able to consider supporting others with their labour. 
In some cases, men might actually prefer their wives to do even less in terms of domestic labour, because it will be a symbol of conspicuous leisure, which is the mark of status. Women doing no work at all only happens if daddy has so much money and power that he wants to show it to people by how he can support a family with even less work on their part. 
A society directing women to be dependent on men, who like their women that way, is definitively a patriarchy, and the division of labour between men and women continues to reinforce gender inequality even today. 
Hopefully you can see more of the repercussions of EXACTLY WHAT WAS IMPLIED IN THE ORIGINAL POST now.
