"I am especially sensitive to, and annoyed by, people who pride themselves on “just telling it like it is”. Sometimes these people possess a rare gift of insight and kindness, but more often, they’re being cruel and disguising it as some sort of lame superpower. Giving someone the hard truth doesn’t make you more insightful, it makes you the asshole who saw the same thing everyone else saw and decided it might make you feel better to say it out loud."
stop saying “slut shaming” 2k14
(110% if you call shitty dress code rules “slut shaming” you’re just re-enforcing the idea that girls (middle school girls!!) are dressing to catch the sexual attention of boys and fueling the argument that that is not school appropriate… not to mention, you’re calling middle school girls sluts)
can we please just use the word “misogyny” or something… shit i’d take “discrimination” or “asshattery” over the term “slut shaming” any day
hulk hogan asks the question that is on everyone’s mind
"Bad books on writing tell you to ‘WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW’, a solemn and totally false adage that is the reason there exist so many mediocre novels about English professors contemplating adultery."
"I think the average guy thinks they’re pro-woman, just because they think they’re a nice guy and someone has told them that they’re awesome. But the truth is far from it. Unless you are actively, consciously working against the gravitational pull of the culture, you will predictably, thematically, create these sort of fucked-up representations."
