So allistic parents:

Give bleach to their Autistic children

Perform electro shock therapy on their Autistic children

Lock their Autistic children in cages

Attempt to kill their Autistic children

Actually kill their Autistic children

and we’re supposed to feel sorry for them because we’re ‘difficult’? 



There was supposed to be some huge insightful parallel here with something along the lines of the fact that although most of our household pets no longer need to fear predators in the wild, they still have one predator above them that could turn on them at any given moment. Unfortunately if that does happen, more often than not they don’t have anywhere to run and nobody to protect them.

I don’t know, It’s 5am and I’m having very heated feelings about a recent event of 200 malnourished, neglected and abused dogs being seized by the AARCS from some person’s rural home in my province earlier this month. ** VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED FOR THAT NEWS LINK. There are photos of said dogs at the top of the page in absolute horrific condition which some people will find disturbing.

Bottom line: if you can’t care for your companion as if it was your own flesh and blood child with proper nurturing and love, then don’t try and  dedicate yourself to it. children are not “hobbies”, why would you treat an animal as one.

In the UK Men must now PROVE that a woman consented to sex. Except *how can you*. No, seriously, how do you prove she consented without filming her during every single sex act?

Men accused of date rape will need to convince police that a woman consented to sex as part of a major change in the way sex offences are investigated.
The Director of Public Prosecutions said it was time for the legal system to move beyond the concept of “no means no” to recognise situations where women may have been unable to give consent.
Alison Saunders said rape victims should no longer be “blamed” by society if they are too drunk to consent to sex, or if they simply freeze and say nothing because they are terrified of their attacker.
Instead, police and prosecutors must now put a greater onus on rape suspects to demonstrate how the complainant had consented “with full capacity and freedom to do so”.

Holy fucking shit

This is insane.

There’s simply no way to prove you’re innocent, you just can’t. Every woman can now have every man she fucks brought up on charges that it is impossible for him to defend against.

And every dopey fucking Feminist reading this is all “IF YOU DON’T WANT TO BE ACCUSED OF RAPE DON’T RAPE!!!”

You’re not getting it. A man is now effectively guilty until proven innocent and ONLY MEN IN THE UK CAN BE CONVICTED OF RAPE BECAUSE THE STATE DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THAT MALES CAN BE RAPE VICTIMS.



The ability to consent to sex should also be questioned where the complainant has mental health problems, learning difficulties or was asleep or unconscious at the time of the alleged attack, she said.

This has to stop. A woman can say she was raped, even if she consented to sex… because she has learning difficulties

WHAT… THE… FUCK!?!?!?!?!?

This has got to stop… They’ve gone too far.

I hate Sansa Stark because she's a whiny melancholic character. It is not because she is a woman. There are many female characters, like Cersei and Margery, that I do like. I also hate many other characters on GoT, both male and female. Game of Thrones is a fictional show; it is not real. I don't hate women in real life. So no, I'm not a misogynist. Newsflash: hating a female character does not make you a misogynist.

You hate Sansa because she is displaying stereotypically ‘feminine’ traits, then, basically? Is that what you’re saying? But that’s not misogynistic at all though, right? 

Seriously hoping you hate the rapists and murderers and abusers that make up the show/GOT universe more than you hate this teenage girl who is an abuse victim and sometimes cries and likes pretty clothes. 

(Also I think a teenage girl that’s been abused, abandoned, suffered the loss of family members that she blames herself for, almost raped, forced into a marriage with a man she’s scared of, threatened, hit, and used by pretty much everyone around her is allowed to whine every once in a while, don’t you? Or is that not cool enough? Does she need to reject the traditionally feminine stereotype for you to allow her her pain?)

I’m suspicious of people who are indignant about how you mustn’t write abusers off. 

There seems to be a likelihood of them being abusers who are will use rhetoric in order to present themselves as reformed. Refusing to accept reformed abusers - to them - is presented to be AS BAD as abuse, thus again making victims and survivors out to be the real villains. 


I’ve kind of been out of #GamerGate for a bit, but I have been observing from the outside. Linehan decided to make a lot of the same old, dry claims about GG that everyone as made, and I really refused to care.

But if there’s one thing I’m not okay with, it’s glossing over or delegitimizing abuse. Linehan said so much out of ignorance or stupidity. 

I’ve gone through abuse of both the physical and emotional capacity, in both family and romantic relationships. The Zoe Post is textbook emotional abuse, anyone who’s suffered through it can recognize that. 

Anyone can be victim to abuse, whatever gender, race, body size, literally anyone. To ridicule someone because you can’t feasibly comprehend that a man got emotionally abused and gaslight by his sad excuse for a girlfriend, you are worse than anything you could say about #GamerGate. Abuse, like rape and other grievances, is not a fucking joke.

Say what you want about the people in #GamerGate, I really don’t give a shit. But leave Eron Gjoni and TZP out of your mouth unless you’ve devoted the time to read it. Don’t have the time/can’t sit and read for so long? Check out the series Understanding The Zoe Post by sdoctmdplays. You literally have no excuse for the ignorance you spew.

that’s why i try to not just talk about how great my relationship is without talking about the work we put in

why i don’t say things like “he’s perfect” and “he’s completes me”

because people see where we are and don’t recognize that

1) we’re here because we work for it

2) before we were dating, we’ve had our share of heart ache and pain that we had to over come

people look around and envy everyone’s relationship

they see a photograph and say “relationship goals”

i have a cousin who would routinely put beautiful pictures of her and her husband up on social media

and behind closed doors, he cheated on her and beat her

the point i’m making is that people envy the relationships

but they don’t envy the work

and people envy the cute moments

but they don’t think about the hard times

i do not idolize my relationship or anyone elses

because i’m not better than the next person who is not in a relationship, or who is in a bad one

there are so many factors not in my control that resulted in my relationship

some call it luck, others a blessing

but i don’t like people seeing where i am and not understanding where i’ve been, or idolizing my relationship such that they can’t see that no relationship is perfect

im so mad 50 shades of grey is going to be made into a movie?? 

it depicts an emotionally and physically abusive relationship, and is apparently also a terrible portrayal of BDSM, which is supposed to be safe and consensual. now people are gonna be unsafe at home, and abusive + manipulative relationships are going to be normalized. it also has the whole “nice girl can fix guy with serious issues who wants to hurt her” trope so theres that.

great job 

Hypocrisy Hoedown

Zoophiles: I’m not sexually abusing my dogs. If they weren’t comfortable with it they would bite me or walk away.

Tumblr: Gross, fuck off, animals can’t consent. 

Dairy farmers: I’m not sexually abusing my cows. If they weren’t comfortable with it they would kick me or walk away.

Tumblr: Seems legit.
Tumblr: Intent isn’t magical.

Dairy farmer: Okay, I have to restrain my cow while I shove my arm up her ass and penetrate her vagina and uterus with an instrument, but I’m not intending it to be sexual so it’s okay. 

Tumblr: Okay, it is when I want ice cream.
