I really love knitting, but my family likes to bug me about knitting “being for old ladies.”
Would anyone like to help me prove them wrong?
Reblog if you think knitting is rad and not just for old ladies!

My family had done the same thing until I just started to roll with it.

Knitting is for everyone!

Instead of asking, “Did she say no?”, we should start asking, “Did she want to have sex?”

rapeculturerealities:

Part of the problem with putting the onus on victims to make the rape “official” through refusing and fighting back is the next thing that happens is we get into a quibbling match over whether or not they fought back enough to “earn” the right to have their rape considered a rape. It encourages this mentality where badgering someone until they stop saying no or simply ignoring them so that you can honestly say later you had no idea that they were refusing is somehow in-bounds. It becomes the victim’s fault for not refusing in exactly the right way, even though most rapists aren’t actually going to take any no for an answer, no matter how you phrase it.

Anonymous asked: Assholes will always be assholes, not just rich people.

hellsatmyfeet:

Here’s the thing though: the vast majority of very wealthy people are a special kind of asshole. Leaving this out leaves out an important part of the social structure in which we live. Yes, poor people can be assholes. I’m sometimes an asshole and I’m poor. But rich people have the special privilege of being assholes around others who end up having to take it from them or quite literally starve / become homeless.

Rich people have the privilege of having others subjugated by their economic power stand next to them and listen while they blather on and insult you and your people, and you’re expected to take it because they have money, and apparently this means their opinions must be heard. The worst is when they claim they used to be poor (they almost never really work actually living in forced poverty) and tell you about their struggles.

There are many types of assholes. But I will not pretend that a very large proportion of rich people, if not almost all of them, are condescending, self important assholes that talk down to and unfairly judge people they do not deem to be their socioeconomic equals. they often do this while regaling the world of their own struggles with finance. This seems to make them feel better, because they can then claim that all poor people could be financially comfortable to, if only they would do the asshole things** they have done to become rich assholes, because they are delusional and believe they once too lived in poverty.

** those things are almost entirely impossible for pretty much every poor person.

xxxxxx1x asked: Here's some ridiculous gendering in advertising I noticed: in a male dove soap commercial it says their soap protects against dryness. Apparently the term moisturize is now 100% feminine can only be used to describe things that are made for ladies lmao

misandry-mermaid:

Wow I’ve never noticed that either, but you’re totally right.

Whenever you’re going through a bad day just remember, your track record for getting through bad days, so far, is 100%; and that’s pretty damn good.

People look down on McDonald’s employees but fail to realize that if all these folks left McDonald’s and pursued “better careers”  your ass wouldn’t be able to get a McDouble with an Oreo McFlurry at 3am. 

You can’t demand a service while simultaneously degrading those who provide it for you.

What anti choicers don’t understand is that pro choice doesn’t mean “abort all fetuses forever and ever”, it means that you have the choice to abort if you want to. If you don’t? If you want to go ahead with the pregnancy? Good for you! Pro choicers will stand by you and support you, because that’s what it’s all about. A choice.
