How the guy who invented a date-rape drug detecting nail polish feels after being attacked by feminists 

>guy

part of the problem. there’s a number of reasons why the idea sucks, but mostly because drugs are only involved in a minority of rape cases. it helps reinforce ideas that women need to change their behaviours or wear a certain thing to stop rape. 

it’s funny when people start attacking feminists like anita sarkeesian, it’s “dishonest” to ignore the “legitimate criticism” in the wake of that. however when there are honest and thoughtful feminist critiques of stuff like that, they get shut down as bitching and surprise surprise, feminists end up getting attacked again.

For an explanation of the issues behind the “Anti rape” Nail Polish, this article is a good start.

squiggles78:

so here’s the thing i hate about Moffat’s writing.

he doesn’t show, he tells.

if Amy/Clara/River are supposed to be particularly special in any way, I’d like to decide for my self how special i think they are.

I want to formulate my own opinion on the characters rather than have the Doctor…

Was I the only one who felt like Moffat was using Clara to rebuke what he thinks of as “fangirls?” He made her shallow enough to be upset about the Doctor’s “wrinkles” and then had Matt Smith call her up to say “As scared as…

"I really want them to do Snow White and Red Rose with Snow and Red Riding Hood. I already ship her with the prince who is cursed to be a bear. If he was a were-bear or something and she taught him how to shift it would be beautiful."

Why NOT this guys? Why not other stories Disney hasn’t done instead of ruining Disney’s versions to pander to bullies?

… which bullies?

Today’s picture for invisible illness is a personal one. This is one of about 30 notes that my friend has received since using her handicapped placard. I’m going to say this to you, have you ever seen someone get out of a car parked in a handicapped space and said to yourself “they look too young or they don’t look disabled.” I’m going to go with yes you have, because we all have at one time. I can’t remember doing it, but before I understood the difficulties of invisible illness when I was younger I probably did. Let me ask you this though, when you had that thought was it because you knew with 100% certainty that they weren’t handicapped or did you assume that because of their age and/or not seeing a cane, walker or wheelchair? All I’m asking is that we stop and think when we someone need a mobility aid, park in a handicapped space or say they are disabled that we remember this “DISABILITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE OR APPEARNACE.” #spoonie #invisibleillness #disability #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #fibromyalgia #myofascialpainsyndrome

If nothing else, this post needs to be seen around the internet more. This harassment is not okay and no one should have to deal with it on top of having an invisible illness. This is just another form of anonymous bullying to add to the internet bullying these TROLLS are capable of.

If you are healthy, please reblog.
If you are sick, please reblog.
If you have a disability, please reblog.
If you have an invisible illness, please reblog.
If you know someone with a disability, please reblog.
If you are a human being, please reblog.

Let’s spread the word and help those of us that may not look like it. 

Ignorance isn’t bliss, ignorance is ignorance. 

I am not looking forward to this.

I swear to god, those eyes, that expression. I am really glad I am not the sort of person you’re directing this at because if I would feel like a terrible human being. 

If we can find a way to weaponise you against the Patriarchy I think we might win this war.
