the fact that a girl being a feminist is a turn off to a lot of guys is just further proof that sexism exists they’re literally saying they don’t want a girl who requires respect because that’s just no fun

"America was built on two monumental crimes: the genocide of the Native American and the enslavement of the African American. The tendency of official America is to memorialize other peoples’ crimes and to forget its own - to seek a high moral ground as a pretext to ignore real issues."

Sometimes running a feminist quidditch Facebook group produces exactly the same feelings as a mother trying to go grocery shopping with multiple young children– 

"Mommy will buy you a Hershey’s bar if you don’t destroy anything in the store, OK?"

"THE GROUP MOD WILL GIVE YOU ALL $5 TO JUST SHUT UP FOR 20 MINUTES."

Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.

After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people who he saved 50 years before.

she just kept going 

i screamed into a headset and she just kept going

One time I passed out at the counter in a McAlister’s because I’d gotten too hot, and still had yet to accept you cannot “tough out” a fainting spell. When I came to, I looked up from the ground, and saw a group of old ladies had stepped over my lifeless body to place their order. Thanks.

We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.
