"My response to the “I am not a feminist” internet phenomenon….
First of all, it’s clear you don’t know what feminism is. But I’m not going to explain it to you. You can google it. To quote an old friend, “I’m not the feminist babysitter.”
But here is what I think you should know.
You’re insulting every woman who was forcibly restrained in a jail cell with a feeding tube down her throat for your right to vote, less than 100 years ago.
You’re degrading every woman who has accessed a rape crisis center, which wouldn’t exist without the feminist movement.
You’re undermining every woman who fought to make marital rape a crime (it was legal until 1993).
You’re spitting on the legacy of every woman who fought for women to be allowed to own property (1848). For the abolition of slavery and the rise of the labor union. For the right to divorce. For women to be allowed to have access to birth control (Comstock laws). For middle and upper class women to be allowed to work outside the home (poor women have always worked outside the home). To make domestic violence a crime in the US (It is very much legal in many parts of the world). To make workplace sexual harassment a crime.
In short, you know not what you speak of. You reap the rewards of these women’s sacrifices every day of your life. When you grin with your cutsey sign about how you’re not a feminist, you ignorantly spit on the sacred struggle of the past 200 years. You bite the hand that has fed you freedom, safety, and a voice.
In short, kiss my ass, you ignorant little jerks.”
National Review Online editor-at-large Kathryn Jean Lopez praised an organization that practices discredited “ex-gay” therapy techniques, urging gay men and lesbians to choose the path of “conversion and renewal.”
In a July 22 review for NRO, Lopez lauded Desire of the Everlasting Hills, a documentary about three Roman Catholics who left gay relationships to pursue lives of celibacy. As Lopez noted, the documentary was a project of Courage, a Catholic organization that aims to help people with “homosexual desires” to lead “chaste lives.”
Just imagine if someone who reads this nonsense ever gets any political power. Wait? What’s that? I’m being told that’s exactly what’s happening all the time.
This is a Cracked piece and if you hate Cracked because it’s clickbait, I’m with you, but these paintings are pretty funny.
Today, “The 700 Club” ran a report about how “modesty is hot,” specifically profiling the work of the groups Secret Keeper Girl and Modest Is Hottest, whose founder does worksh
Is “religious freedom” about being free to practice your faith, or just a generic cover story for any and all attempts to try to foist your beliefs on others? In this era of Hobby Lobby v Burwell, it’s understandable that many on the right have decided it’s the latter and…
Thanks to religious wackos on the Supreme Court awarding religious wackos at something called Hobby Lobby the right to use their religion to oppress employees, religious wackos from all walks of life are lining up to exploit the decision. First up, this fucking wacko Jesus freak.
