    "

    To paraphrase the great John Oliver, listen up, fellow self-pitying nerd boys—we are not the victims here. We are not the underdogs. We are not the ones who have our ownership over our bodies and our emotions stepped on constantly by other people’s entitlement. We’re not the ones where one out of six of us will have someone violently attempt to take control of our bodies in our lifetimes.

    We are not Lewis from Revenge of the Nerds, we are not Steve Urkel from Family Matters, we are not Preston Myers from Can’t Hardly Wait, we are not Seth Rogen in every movie Seth Rogen has ever been in, we are not fucking Mario racing to the castle to beat Bowser because we know there’s a princess in there waiting for us.

    We are not the lovable nerdy protagonist who’s lovable because he’s the protagonist. We’re not guaranteed to get laid by the hot chick of our dreams as long as we work hard enough at it. There isn’t a team of writers or a studio audience pulling for us to triumph by “getting the girl” in the end. And when our clever ruses and schemes to “get girls” fail, it’s not because the girls are too stupid or too bitchy or too shallow to play by those unwritten rules we’ve absorbed.

    It’s because other people’s bodies and other people’s love are not something that can be taken nor even something that can be earned—they can be given freely, by choice, or not.

    "Don’t ever compliment me by insulting other women. That’s not a compliment, it’s a competition none of us agreed to."

    "it’s a competition none of us agreed to"  I want to give the author of this quote the hardest dap ever.

    "There’s a paradox in thinking that you’re better than other girls, when your whole reason for feeling that way is because you think your gender is so inherently inferior that you want to dis-identify with being a girl altogether."

    More Than Words: Tomboys R Us

    THIS whenever some girl brags about being “one of the boys” or says something like “I’m not like other girls, I LOVE [stereotypically masculine thing].”

    "Women are afraid of meeting a serial killer. Men are afraid of meeting someone fat."

    When Strangers Click, a 2011 documentary about online dating.

    It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”

    I mean, it’s just true.

    (via tealeafprincess)

    “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”

    That’s it.  That’s it right there.

    Tamera Mowry Responds to Critics of Her Interracial Marriage ( x )

    YOOOOOOO that second insult though. SHIT

    relevant

    See, comments like this against interracial relationships are anti-Black bc calling this woman “the white man’s whore” implies her entire identity is sexual, frames a Black woman in terms of whiteness & denies her agency of choice.
    Saying she’s giving it to him for free implies that there will always be a price on a Black woman’s body as if she’s a vehicle whose value can depreciate.

    This is ignorance. Nothing for it.

    This whole exchange between her and Tia just destroyed me because it’s like neither one of them could “get it right” because they’re biracial themselves. It’s just… All of this is awful.
