Why Tumblr Feminism Is Misguided

thezerothlaw:

I recently received some backlash for disagreeing with a feminist who defended the happenings of Tumblr, and so I decided to write this post. Despite believing in equal rights and circumstances for both sexes, I still hesitate to call myself a feminist, and here I attempt to explain why, targeting…

This is a VERY long, but gloriously written post. There are no words. I find it perfectly balanced, and frightfully true in many places. If you have some time, I’d check it out. Especially if, like me, tumblr feminism has warped your views on what feminism actually means.

My blog says there would be no SJW stuff here. That’s still true, because this isn’t “social justice”, this is real justice.

hey I was wondering, how much money has been raised for the ali forney center so far? sorry if this question has been answered recently or there's an easy way to check, I'm on mobile and can't figure it out!!

17000dollars:

Hi, anon!  Thanks for asking.  While I’ve been away from the blog, I haven’t had a chance to update y’all.  So far, we’ve raised 4,790.36 dollars out of our 17,000 dollar goal and we’re the sixth biggest donor registered with the Ali Forney Center website!

I’m going through the inbox and a couple people have asked about the fundraiser and whether or not it’s serious.  The answer is yes, definitely! While this is a silly blog, the Ali Forney Center is an amazing cause and I would never joke about raising money for them.  The Center is an NYC-based organization for homeless LGBTQ youth, and it provides housing, food, showers, clothing, medical care, mental health care, street outreach, professional and educational mentoring and a lot more.  

We’re trying to make it to 17,000 dollars (because if Dashcon can raise 17k, so can we!) so it would be great if anyone wanted to check out our fundraising page here.

Btw I watch you now :) Happy to plug you for fun and benefit to the LGBTQ youth.

Apparently, you're only a fan of something if you use the most recent version... I still love to play my copy of Red on Gameboy. So, what does that make me?

pokeshame:

A fan. 

It doesnt matter which Gen you like to play. It doesnt matter if you watch the show or not. It doesnt matter how many of the movies you’ve seen. It doesnt matter if you collect the toys, the cards or any other merchandise. 

If you like pokemon, you’re a pokemon fan.

IT’S REALLY THAT SIMPLE?

Girls who set tortoise on fire have been arrested-

Two girls seen on a Facebook video torturing and killing a gopher tortoise on July 16 in front of an Orange Park home were arrested Friday by investigators from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Clay County Sheriff’s Office.

Jennifer Emoke Greene, 18, and a 15-year-old juvenile were both charged with felony cruelty to animals and a misdemeanor charge of taking, harassing, harming or killing a gopher tortoise, according to commission spokeswoman Karen Parker. Greene is in the Clay County jail on $55,000 bail.

The gopher tortoise has been listed as a threatened species in Florida since 2007, an upgrade from its previous “species of special concern” designation. “We are pleased the authorities acted so quickly and we hope this sets a precedent that animal cruelty should not be tolerated,” Welzant said. “Our Facebook and our email was getting a lot of feedback and a lot of outpouring from the community regarding this case and how upset they were.”

The graphic videos shows two Orange Park girls burning a small gopher tortoise, then laughing and cursing as they throw it down the street. The tortoise is doused with alcohol and lit as it crawls in circles through the flames. The tortoise tries to flee after it is doused again.

“Burn baby, burn baby,” one girl says as they light the tortoise on fire. “Now you are scared of us, huh?”

The second video is more graphic as one girl stomps on the tortoise until it is dead, with its organs squishing out. The girls scream in laughter. “His heart came out with a bunch of grass,” the girl with the camera says as she laughs, then kicks the corpse. “He’s dead. That’s funny.”

If convicted, Greene faces up to five years in prison on the felony animal-cruelty charge, while the misdemeanor charge carries up to 60 days in jail and/or a $500 fine, according to commission officials. The 15-year-old’s case would be handled in juvenile court.

Thank fucking god these two were caught.

It was surprising to me that the authorities actually gave half a shit about an abused reptile because of how rare it is for them to care, but then it occurred to me that tortoises are a protected animal and I laughed until I cried.

Enjoy prison you stupid bitch.

Shanti, 8150. Uh, I used the screaming contest thing for last post, so let’s see… I’m really good at whistling! I can trill while whistling and imitate bird calls well enough that people think it’s real. I can also whistle by cupping my hands a certain way and it sounds like a train whistle or a mourning dove.

Nail polish gives me a headache though!
