Haven’t seen enough of it to have an opinion yet

starkofwinterfell:

here’s what I want leaked: the names of the fucking SCUM OF THE EARTH who leak nude photos of women, the names of the human trash that share the photos after they’re leaked, and the names of the assholes who think it’s okay to rob women of their privacy for their own titillation. then I want those names DRAGGED till they’ve experienced just as much pain and humiliation as these women have to go through for doing what they want with their bodies.

"Don’t get too high and mighty, ladies. Don’t step out of line. Don’t do anything to upset or disappoint men who feel entitled to your time, bodies, affection or attention. Your bared body can always be used as a weapon against you. You bared body can always be used to shame and humiliate you. Your bared body is at once desired and loathed."

You need to read this product description. Badly. You really do.
Product Description
A Futuristic Take On A Everyday Item The LED umbrella is a cool looking conventional umbrella plus the shining led umbrella’s shaft that will add futuristic outlook for its users. Measures 32.5-inches long and 41-inch opened diameter and powered by 3x LR44 button batteries. This Blade Runner style LED umbrella shows you how to look cool in the rain. You’ll look like a cool geek holding a Jedi sword in the rain, who has just defeated the baddies and saved your girl from danger and now ready for a wet embrace from her. The magic behind is the umbrella has an illuminating shaft, which LED is the light source. Just a press of button, the shaft lights up and shines your way through and let you walk home safely with your girl in the dark raining night.


Why the fuck does the god damn description of a light up umbrella seem to be marketing to only men? “Save your girl” fuck off.

Because you know damn well that men need to believe their shaft is illuminating. 

Omg

Anonymous said: I get what you mean but by saying "save your girl" it's not marketing to just men (that would be heteronormative). People of all genders can "save their girls".

I’m aware but that advertisement is clearly pandering to straight nerd boys

When we live in a world where you can access free content of naked consenting women in less than 5 seconds, why are people still invading the privacy of non-consenting women for nudes?

15 questions white people will never have to ask themselves

Many white people may never truly understand why incidents like the Michael Brown shooting infuriate blacks and other people of color — even when it’s clear that race plays a large, looming role in how the situation snowballed to the 18-year-old’s death.

This is in part because white people can move through daily life without constantly thinking about how their race will be perceived. Part of having white privilege is the freedom from worrying about racism, a freedom their black counterparts have never known.
