when a woman interrupts a man or raises her voice, she generally does so to keep from being silenced.
when a man interrupts a woman and raises his voice…he generally does so in order to silence her.
so are we gonna discuss how fucked up it is that women have to wear makeup to be taken seriously at work and job interviews but if a woman has a genuine interest in and enjoyment of cosmetics she is written off as shallow, vain, and stupid, and consequently not taken seriously
OH MY GOD I NEVER EVEN CONSIDERED THIS!
Those people who constantly reblog your stuff but you never really talk:
I do notice my regulars. You guys are the best.
"Regulars" makes me feel like a bar-tender…
Wiping down my dash at the end of an evening, I see your read-more, over-hear your rant in the tags, so I pour you a drink.
"…what’s troubling you, kid?"
Well that’s just lovely.
Please stop asking why people stay, this is why.
So to continuously ask women this question is inhumane.
60% of straight women say they would never date a bisexual. 50% of straight men say they would never date a bisexual. 40% of gay men and lesbians say they would never date a bisexual. Bisexuals are obviously just greedy. They’re just bisexual so they can sleep with fewer people and lose opportunities for relationships based solely on their sexual orientation.
What is your source for these statistics?
This is, albeit, quite a bit of extrapolation. A study showed that 61% of straight people have a negative view of bisexual men while 50% have a negative view of bisexual women. 40% of lesbians and gay men have a negative view of bisexuals.
oh, so you pulled these numbers directly out of your ass. the numbers in this reblog and the numbers in your op don’t mean remotely the same thing. we know that even slight variations in the phrasing of survey questions can yield significant differences in response, yet you think you can just extrapolate from the answer to one question to the answer to an entirely different, unasked question, and make a claim about an entirely different population? (hint: there’s a big difference between 61% of straight people and 60% of straight women)
and you don’t even give a source for the supposed actual statistics, but based on googling i’m assuming it’s this (pdf) since it corroborates your numbers on straight people’s views of bi men and bi women, respectively. but as you may note from the title, it’s a study of HETEROSEXUAL UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS and therefore says ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WHATSOEVER ABOUT LESBIANS AND GAY MEN’S VIEWS TOWARD BI PEOPLE. also, it’s from 1997, for fuck’s sake. i’m sure things are exactly the same now as they were 17 years ago, right?
this post is an actual, literal lie and you should be ashamed.

Take the fight with you everywhere. Learn how to say “no.” Don’t let boys put their fingers inside of you in dark corners if they’re not gonna hold your hand in the light. Be good to other women. Be good to yourself. Nothing is forever and everything is forever. Learn which is which. Let go of the things that aren’t good for you. Hold onto the people that are. Be fucking furious if you need to be. Be loud, be opinionated, be angry. Don’t take shit from people who call you “girl.” Boys are stupid and there’s loads of them, don’t let one ruin you. Learn how to say no, acknowledge your right to say it, use it.
