iwritewithstyle: JB: I think you should mention how I dont like men being called feminists. me: Yeah? JB: How that’s just what guys should be. Calling a guy a feminist is wrong. me: I know guys who call themselves feminists.

A New Policy Against Self-Harm Blogs
shannsational: staff: One of the great things about Tumblr is that people use it for just about every conceivable kind of expression.

gabydunn: Part of me thinks it’s too soon to be writing about this because I don’t think I’ve completely processed how I feel, but I also think maybe this has happened to other women and I should talk about it in as raw a way as possible. I’m still really embarrassed and ashamed and garbled up inside, but maybe this can start a helpful discussion in terms of women and comedy. Last night, I was...

european-booty-scratcher: We live in a world where white people believe they are the victims of reverse racism and men are at the mercy of misandrists. Let’s ignores all the facts on facts on facts that proves otherwise. Next thing you know Christians will cry religious persecu- nevermind.
Common sense reveals that there is no correlation between self-respect and whether or not you show your tits on the internet or how many people you sleep with.

I don’t recall there being too many articles written about this. note: link above is to an article about the new gov’t.’s attempts to crackdown on opium. here’s a NYT blog post that mentions the elections. Here’s a CFR article that discusses them as well. Maybe I...

utspiro: creatingaquietmind: If you’re a “nice guy” to a girl up until you realize she doesn’t want to date you, then go on about how she’s a cold shrew that friendzoned you and how no girls date nice guys, like, nah mate, girls do date nice guys.
