Women are afraid of meeting a serial killer. Men are afraid of meeting someone...– 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...
To this end, we are calling on Facebook users to contact advertisers whose ads...– Soraya Chemaly: An Open Letter to Facebook (via brute-reason) Most advertisers are stunned to hear that their ads are on these pages.

You won’t allow me to go to school. I won’t become a doctor. Remember this:...– Poem written by a 15 year old Afghan girl This poem was recorded in a NYT magazine article about female underground poetry groups in Afghanistan. An amazing article about the ways in which women are using a traditional two line poetry form to express their resistance to male oppression, their...
Imagine Harry Potter was set in Australia.
thedeepestcircleofhell: “Three blokes sitting outside the pub lift their heads as they hear a car engine rumbling, to their disbelief, the iconic 2008 Holden ute flies overhead, nothing but the wooping of the two young boys driving it and AC/DC blasting out of the sound system can be heard.” “You’re a cunt Harry” says Hagrid, Harry looking like a stunned mullet. “Oi nah fuck off mate” replies...

thighabetic: shutupmerlin: My grandmother grew up in this tiny village in Barbados, and she was the only kid in the village to have a cricket bat. She used to play with all the boys, but then they started stealing the bat every time she bought it out of the house and saying that she couldn’t play because girls shouldn’t play sport. So one day she invited them to come play cricket, then set...

octosquiddle: Know what really creeps me out? How much homophobes are obsessed with gay sex. Seriously, any sort of queer content, no matter how subtle, in mainstream media is met with straight people freaking out about how they’re meant to explain gay sex to their children.

daunt: copperbadge: As a book, I love Ender’s Game to tiny pieces. It’s the anthem for the smart young outsider, and it’s a hell of an adventure story. I love it and I’m ashamed of how much I love it because it’s written by this man: “Regardless of law, marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy.

starksexual: i was at the bus stop with my sister the other day and for no apparent reason, she says: ‘dude, there are more dead people in the world than living people’ and the woman standing beside me whispered ‘holy shit’ and i fucking lost it
psilentasincjelli: If I ever tell you I’m going to sleep and then you see me posting or liking things online for about an hour immediately after that, I promise I wasn’t lying to you, I’m just bad at going to sleep and it is usually a long process that begins with disengaging from any sort of immediate contact with people (chats, for example) and ends when everything on my screen is blurry and...
