Because what I say matters, and you care because you're too bored not to.
You should have asked him if he would have repeated those same jokes in front of his mother. ..
I said it to the youngest one in the room, for crying out loud he’s only 13! I will be having a talk with my aunt about restricting/limiting his access to the wonders of the world wide web. I don’t know why they’ve given him so much autonomy at such a young age??
I told the older one that we should be so proud we are training them to be hateful misogynists so young. Everyone got quiet on that one, the jokes totally seized after that.

THE DAY I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR.
If you have this, you have everything.
It is a testament to how totally perfect this is that I was convinced I’d seen another picture just like this… and then realized I hadn’t.

Yahoo’s Board Approves $1.1 Billion Purchase Of Tumblr
What do you think about it?Presumably, Tumblr can start inserting ads between users posts like Twitter inserts sponsored posts.
i really dislike that paragraph in the news article -.-
My cousin called me a feminist last night. I don’t mind, of course, but the context and tone in which he called me one made me want to smack him upside the head. I told him listening to gross jokes about my gender isn’t feminism. But I kept thinking more of it later on.
I am not a feminist because I would rather not sit and listen to incredibly demeaning, insulting, and disgusting jokes about my gender. That’s not feminism, that’s just common human decency. And the fact that there were two other girls in the room, and no one had the guts or even the idea to say something against listening to misogynistic jokes and were subsequently laughing at those jokes made me a little sick.
This is our society people. We sit around a circle, in a mixed gathering, where men (young and old) make fun of blondes, brunettes, black, asian, white, skinny, and/or overweight women and we all laugh—hell, we join in, we contribute. Because it’s just so damn funny to hear about how a blonde girl rarely goes to her own bed every night, or how she’s so ‘slutty’ she doesn’t know how to take off her own pants.
Where’s that pail? I think I might be needing it.

“I think a lot about what makes a strong female character. You know, movies and TV shows, these things have influence, my own website. So I think the question of “What makes a strong female character?”, often goes misinterpreted. And instead we get these two-dimensional superwomen, who maybe have one quality that’s played up a lot. Like, you know, a Catwoman type, or she plays her sexuality up a lot and it’s seen as power. But they’re not strong characters who happen to be female, they’re completely flat and they’re basically cardboard characters.
The problem with this is that then people expect women to be that easy to understand, and women are mad at themselves for not being that simple. When in actuality, women are complicated. Women are multifaceted. Not because women are crazy, but because people are crazy. And women happen to be people!”
