You know, the one that gives housewives/full-time mothers a pension— wages for housework?
It’s ONLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR FEMINISM, SOCIALISM, AND WOMEN OF COLOR. Not a big deal or anything. Tumblr is mysteriously silent about this.
fuck yeah, hard femme!: jadedcattybrownbitch: And while we’re on the subject…This whole thing... -
And while we’re on the subject…
This whole thing with automatically jumping to assumptions about someone reblogging something that was made/wrote by someone who did/wrote gross shit in the past has got to stop.
This is a fucking huge website with a lot of people using it, and a lot of them don’t keep up with particular users and what they do and say. It’s fine to point something out to them if you feel it’s necessary, and it’s also fine to have boundaries for yourself and say you won’t follow anyone who reblogs from a gross, abusive blogger you want to stay far away from (like I have to now).
But people leaping down people’s throats for reblogging something someone wrote/drew/whatever, immediately assuming people are okay with the problematic shit the person did in the past that they probably didn’t even know about is just being an asshole and purposely looking for an excuse to cause drama and fighting.
I saw this one blog telling people to back off when they were jumped on for reblogging a person they didn’t know did problematic shit in the past (namely blackface). Apparently, they didn’t know about the blackface and reblogged something else from them (that was not blackface), and then the people running that blog were accused of reblogging and promoting blackface.And then people said that their understandable and fair enough “we’re sorry for that, but can you please back off of our blog? we didn’t know.” reaction was a “fauxpology” and “passive-aggressive.”
Do you fucking dipshits even know what “passive-aggressive” is anymore? What the hell are you doing?
A lot of people on this site need to get a fucking grip on themselves. You’re fucking arrogant, egotistical bullies who don’t even know what the fuck they’re saying anymore.

WHEN A VEGAN GETS ALL WORKED UP OVER MY PENCHANT FOR BACON -
Here is the thing, okay? Coming into a feminist conversation with, “Have you considered that sometimes women acquire free drinks at bars?” is like walking into graduate school during Philosophy finals and saying, “Have you considered that the color blue that I see may not be the color blue that you see?”
Imagine you are the guy who just walked into that Philosophy class and laid that shit down. Imagine the class full of students who have worked very hard and committed themselves and sacrificed to be here, students who have spent several years of their lives learning about this subject. Imagine now their feelings when you go to the head of the classroom with a smirk on your face and demand the professor give you an A for effort. Imagine now that they think you are a douchebag asshole, because they do, and because you are. You are a douchebag asshole because you are obviously so self-centered, arrogant, and completely ignorant of the world around you, that you thought you could walk into a high-level course with no background and no work and say something profoundly simplistic and totally unrelated and also everybody should congratulate you for having done this thing, so brave, so provocative.
You are not asking us a real question. You are simply illustrating, for all to see, your own ignorance. You are saying, “I have not considered the implications of the question I have just asked. I have not taken the time nor effort nor commitment to sit down and ask myself this question. Instead, I have come into your philosophy classroom/office/feminist blog and shat out my question with a smirk, because I believe that my two seconds of thought are worth more than your long-term analysis, because I believe I am worth more.”

And for the record: women getting free drinks at bars enables rape culture.
