“Women are afraid of meeting a serial killer. Men are afraid of meeting someone fat.”—
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 irritates. Misogyny kills.”
I mean, it’s just true.
Edited to add: The quote from the documentary is referring to heterosexual men who meet women through online dating, and vice versa. And the “it’s just true” comment is referring to the quotes from Margaret Atwood and SWP.
Why aren't more people freaking out about the new Venezuelan labor law?
You know, the one that gives housewives/full-time mothers a pension— wages for housework?
It’s ONLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR FEMINISM, SOCIALISM, AND WOMEN OF COLOR. Not a big deal or anything. Tumblr is mysteriously silent about this.

“Through a career that has included crotch-grabbing, nudity, BDSM, Marilyn Monroe fetishizing, and a 1992 book devoted to sex, Madonna has been viewed as a feminist provocateur, pushing the boundaries of acceptable femininity. But Beyoncé’s use of her body is criticized as thoughtless and without value beyond male titillation, providing a modern example of the age-old racist juxtaposition of animalistic black sexuality vs. controlled, intentional, and civilized white sexuality.”—All Hail the Queen?

Since the school system is getting really anal about a new strict dress code for female students, how about I make a proposal to solve this problem?
It’s a very simple solution
From now on, everyone shall wear onesies
Not just the female students, but the male students and school staff
Yes, even the principal
Every day will be like a slumber party!
And best of all, no one will be gawking at you, because onesies are fucking hideous
