micdotcom:

She pointed out the sexism in video games, so men threatened her until she fled her home

On Monday, Anita Sarkeesian posted a segment titled “Women as Background Decoration.” It examined how gratuitous sexual abuse and violence permeates contemporary video games. By the next day, she had received so many violent threats that she had to flee her home. And these weren’t idle Internet threats — some contained accurate identifying information about Sarkeesian’s home and family, enough for law enforcement to get involved.

But she’s not wrong | Follow @micdotcom

time to bring out the point that “whenever anything is said about sexism/feminism, the comments and responses just help to justify those statements”

this is disgusting.

I just bought my Wonder Woman comic and these were the last two pages. Wonder woman makes me extremely happy.

AND SHE GAVE HIM A PIECE OF THE LASSO OF TRUTH I CAN’T.

Which issue is this? I legitimately need to know.

Distressing Video Captures EXACTLY How Cops Treat Black People

I was extremely uncomfortable watching this. What the fuck, this is getting fucking ridiculous.. Why was no one helping him?!

swear to god serial killers need to stop killing innocent civilians and target these racists cops

God in front of your fucking kids.

It’s sad that I kinda agree with zipfolder.

the right to protect yourself from cops should be a thing.

I think the situation with the officer who held an assault rifle up to protesters was handled poorly by those protesting. Although he had no need to point a gun, he was scared and people were instigating him, rather than trying to calm the situation. Rather than questioning and taunting him, a better response would have been to tell the officer that things were ok and they didn’t mean to hurt him. I wasn’t there, so im just talking from what I’ve seen. But as a strong critic of nonviolent protest, and an advocate for more direct action tactics, I still think things are being conducted poorly by both protesters and police (especially police) in Furgeson.

It’s one of the most misogynist things out there.

dictating how a woman chooses to express herself sexually is misogynistic

it’s also misogynistic to assume that all women undertake a sub position 

it’s also heterosexist to assume that all bdsm is heterosexual
