After hearing about the blog “fuckyeahreadmores”, I’m urging my followers to refrain from tagging their personal posts as “personal” or “read more”. Choose a more unique phrase that can’t be easily searched for, because for some reason there are sick fucks out there searching the ‘read more’ tag.
The thought of starting such a blog crossed my mind awhile ago. It’s trivially easy to write a bot that reblogs everything under a certain tag. Good thing I’m not the kind of jackass who actually does stuff like that.
I want to write one that, once a day, picks a random “Read More” post, reposts it with the content in full view with a link to the source, and pays five dollars to pin it
because op is an idiot
and then there’s people who would literally pay money for no other purpose than to ensure that random strangers on the internet have their days completely ruined
thank you tumblr user @leonsbuddydave for expanding my estimation of just how pointlessly cruel people can be
If you buy a billboard with your number on it, expect some calls.
except NO ONE IS BUYING A GODDAMN BILLBOARD, they are making a private post that is meant for dashboard friends.
yes shit posted on a website is ~public~. so is a private conversation between friends in a cafe. doesn’t mean a person coming over and shouting out what i’m saying to the entire restaurant doesn’t make them AN ENORMOUS DICK.
like, why would you WANT to do that? what joy does it bring you to air people’s personal posts? i’m genuinely curious to what kind of mental gymnastics you’re performing to make that applaudable in some way. is it like, a TAKE THAT HOW DARE YOU POST A PERSONAL THING YOU DON’T WANT CIRCULATING? TAKE THAT FOR ASSUMING YOU CAN WRITE SOMETHING MEANT FOR YOUR DASH BECAUSE I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW FOR NO REASON!!! ha haaaaa I AM HERO!!!!!
seriously, you are an asshole. just stop. stop. your douchebaggery is not impressing anyone. you’re not some misunderstood rebel. you are just, really kind of pathetic.
using freedom of speech to justify being a fucking assbutt
#1 argument for ‘anti SJWs’
who the fuck is posting shit on the internet then?
news is on the internet, so are articles, essays, discussions etc. how does that statement even make sense? You’re just trying to mask the fact that you’re an asshole and don’t want to take responsibility for your words.
this is beautiful
the amazing racist
the amazing sexist
the amazing asshole
the amazing apologist
the amazing waste of space
the amazing oxygen thief
the amazing fact that no one has punched you in the face
…okay that last one wasn’t a title but it’s no less valid
a girl liked his status
i am so done with idiots
Seriously. If the only thing concerning you about equal rights is wanting to hit women then you’ve got issues. Fucking assholes
the bolding is mine because seriously
Is anyone else pretty fucking tired of seeing men trying to use physical violence against women as a reason why we should be happy with the way things currently are? Every man that uses this argument is basically saying, shut up and enjoy the status quo, because if you don’t, that gives us free reign to beat the shit out of you as we see fit. If that isn’t fucked up I don’t know what is.
Not that, you know, we already have to deal with a shitload of phsyical violence that’s not even taken seriously half the time with things the way they are.
This fucking dick and his brother.
On the R train about two hours ago a girl with a book bag sat down between these two guys, one of them moved over for her, but the other made an annoyed face and goes, “did you have to sit like that?!” and the girl just smiled.
So he called her a dyke.
She rolled her eyes at him and was like, “ok buddy” and he started in on her appearance.
Talking shit about her short hair and baggy jeans, calling her a dyke. Then his fucking twin brother (you guys they were dressed alike and easily 40) piped up with, “oh come on, leave HIM alone!” and they both laughed, so I said (because I never did learn to keep my mouth shut) “what the fuck is your problem! Leave her alone”
Then they both turned around to me and the one standing up said, “what’s your problem little girl? Mind your fucking business!” so I said, “why don’t you? Stop fucking with her!” at which point the seated brother turned from harassing the girl and started harassing me. He called me fat, ugly, a dyke, and a stupid dyke bitch. Then he told me that my septum ring made me look unfeminine. I stood up and said, “do you think this hurts my fucking feelings? You think I’ve never been called a fucking dyke before!” and my cousin, who was right next to me said, “why do you need to harass her?!”
While he was yelling at me the other brother went back to yelling at the girl. He said she had short hair because she had something to prove, and that we could all see she was just a fat dyke.
This went on until they got off the train at 49th. As they were leaving the car the one that had been standing said he would kill us and the one that had been sitting said, “you’re a dyke and you’re a dyke and birds of feather!! Bitches!”
After the left, a large man who didn’t make eye contact said, “oh are you all ok?” a lot of fucking help you were when we needed you.
Everyone who thinks all women have to do is ask the men to move, or “speak up”? TAKE NOTICE OF WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE DO.
And the other men in the train, those of you who chose to stand by and do nothing - YOU are the problem. These men, and the men like this, are YOUR problem.
Tzipporah, I’m sorry you and your cousin went through this. Good on you for speaking out for the other woman.

This post is kind of hard for me to actually agree with or disagree with.
My problem with thinking non-asshole men are obligated to tell asshole men off is… well, that is likely to lead to violence.
Oh, okay. So we’re at an impasse then. We’ve spent the last three weeks on this blog being told by MEN that what we (women) need to do is just tell these guys to move and to stop harassing us, and if we don’t we’re cowards. Now you’re here acknowledging that asking men to move or to stop would lead to violence, and you’re not willing to deal with that.
But you ARE willing to stand by and watch that violence be inflicted on other people, to protect your own self.
While these guys called you a dyke, I’d be likely to have my face kicked in for standing up to them.So, naturally, I’m going to keep my mouth shut. It’s not my obligation to have my ass kicked by some dude for sticking up for you just because me and this guy have the same reproductive organs.
Oh, okay. Gotcha. You like having your male privilege…and the fact YOU could call women dykes and THREATEN TO KILL THEM without worrying about either women or men standing up to you. Nice!
So, hey, I can say these guys are sexist pigs. I can say I abhor guys like this, but I can’t agree with you that it’s my duty to stand up to him.
Yes, I understand. You just don’t think you have any responsibility to the people around you. What does it matter if some stranger is being threatened and harassed, so long as your ass is safe?
If I thought I could do this without encountering violence, I would, but I’m not signing up to have my fatass kicked. Hope you understand where I’m coming from.
Yeah, we understand. Since it’s the daily experience of women - you know, having to deal with harassment and the threat of violence. The difference is, though, that we as women are ACTUALLY EXPERIENCING THE VIOLENCE. We don’t have to DO anything except exist to face this kind of violence. You get to keep yourself safe by letting it happen to us.
And that makes you a complete shithead.

I’m so sorry that this happened, and feel the need to have it on my blog because of some of the unbelievable reactions you’ve gotten. Entitled bullshit, unfortunately, is more than just entitled bullshit, it can be life threatening.
Also, take note of how the above picture guy is sitting. I thought it seemed relevant after that other photo was circulating a few weeks ago about the idea of taking up space. Observations and truth.
Reblogging this version for the comments.
So… I just got sent this.
I was planning on replying with some sassy gif, and some snark, but you know what, anon? I’m going to be brutally honest.
I had to drop out of university, not because of my grades, but because I have crippling depression and anxiety. I got a job so I could earn some money, and gain some confidence. Most days I struggle to get out of bed. I am in the middle of a breakdown because my boyfriend of 3+ years is moving to Melbourne, and I’m trying to convince my parents that I should go to Melbourne uni too, but I can’t even convince myself, because even things like taking a shower exhaust and overwhelm me. How can I convince them that I will be able to mangage going back to university, and moving countries at the same time, when my mind tells me every day that I am an incompetent waste of space?
Bu you know what? Thank you. Thank you so much for this message. I can see you now, refreshing my page, waiting desperately for me to reply, because you’re a sad, lonely dude who gets off on other people’s misery. You can’t wait to read my angry retort. You just love putting women in their place, and bringing out the tired, sexist stereotypes in order to get a rise out of people. Are you happy, anon? Does it make you feel good to know that you have affected my mood? Does it feel great to know that you have sent anonymous hate to a stranger, and that you succeeded in making her feel like she’s been punched in the stomach? Congratulations. You’ve done your job. I hope you are experiencing true happiness.
Now if you don’t mind, I need to get some sleep because I will be working tomorrow, at minimum wage, trying to prove to myself and my parents that I can beat this depression, and can amount to more than just staying in bed all day. I hope you are having a great day yourself. Are you off to another feminist’s blog to be a witty troll? While I struggle with my debilitating mental illness, you can use your white male privilege to bring more hatred into this world.
Are you proud?
“Why is Reddit so Anti-Women?” Fascinating (and highly sensical) approach here, underscoring what gets lost when education (policy) is viewed as strictly the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields (the globally profitable/innovation-driven ones) at the expense of social/cultural education. (via marathonpacks)
AND reinforcing the overall White maleness of STEM fields. Vicious cycle, that.
[TRIGGER WARNING: RAPE, MISOGYNY, GENERAL DOUCHEBAGGERY]
Claiming that women don’t deserve to share in the blame for dressing like a whore and getting raped is retarded.
Should women be able to dress like whores and not get raped? Yeah, in the same way I should be able to make a suit out of money and not get robbed. But if I do wear that suit and get robbed, you can’t say I’m blameless for being a total fucking moron.
Is one crime worse than the other? Probably. But both of them are instances of a person defying common sense and suffering the consequences. If a person who does not heed common sense is not blameworthy, then who is?
The fact we tell women not to dress like whores to avoid rape isn’t evidence of some grand pro-rape conspiracy, or of some imaginary rape culture, it’s a common sense precaution. Of course society DOES tell us don’t rape and steal — that obviously isn’t enough to fully protect us.
wow this entire post is disgusting wow gross
So I suppose if I walk up to you with a shirt that says ‘Kill me’ you’ll pull out said gun you need and kill me?
OK WELL THEN…
(prepare for a rant)
So the logic behind this person’s post is that “because I can, I should”
oh i’m sorry did i miss the memo where just because we are physically capable of doing something and tempted to act that way, we should? so because i have a knife in my house, when my sister pisses me off i should just kill her? yes? good. (for the record i don’t want to kill my sister, this is purely hypothetical, she is a lovely girl)
a woman may dress promiscuously if that’s the way she wants to dress. in fact, yes she may be trying to tempt someone into some less-than-saintly behavior but that is a CONSENSUAL behavior she wants to engage in. just because a woman presents herself in an attractive light does not permit people to force her into a physically and emotionally traumatizing experience.
with regards to the suit of money comment, that is so far from the same thing that it pisses me off beyond words. if you found a dollar on the ground, would you think twice about picking it up? no. it’s money. it’s a physical thing that has little to no emotional repercussions. while yes it is traumatizing to get robbed money is far more replaceable than a girl’s virginity. it’s also a lot easier to replace money than say… get rid of an std. or go through a pregnancy because the ass that raped you didn’t even use a condom. beyond that, the rape victim will forever lose their sense of security. when they walk down the street, they will be terrified of everyone who gives them a passing glance.
finally, your hypothetical robber? will probably be jailed if caught for the appropriate amount of time. meanwhile, a rapist? well first of all the majority of rapes that occur go unreported because the victim is either so traumatized they don’t want to recount the event for anyone or because they know the statistics. of the rapes that are reported, 97% do not go to jail. 97% of the wretched people that destroyed a victim’s state of mind and possibly their health walk free simply because the justice system allows it.
i’m really, truly sorry for this rant. i don’t often do stuff like this but i really, really wanted to say something on this matter.
I cannot form anger into words. Just fuck you, mister.
The OP has two choices at this point. He can either
a) read through the criticisms of his post and explanations as to why it is fallacious and harmful, and learn from the experience. He will retract his statement, apologize for his sexist and ableist language, and admit that he is in the wrong here.
b) put his fedora on and use this is an excuse to claim persecution and oppression for voicing his opinion, and go further and further back into his MRA hole of misogyny and victim blaming.
some feminists really seem to think that all men only think of women as sexual objects, and that all men view rape as the woman’s fault, and that all men treat women as a joke, and sexually harass them in the workplace, or that all men think that women are weak, inferior and unable to do ‘man’s work’
it’s really not like that, stop putting all men in that category, it’s sexist
Women are treated like sexual objects, told that they are at fault for their rape, treated like jokes, sexually harassed at work, and thought of as weak/inferior every single day. Constantly. Do you know what that feels like?
We know that all men are not like this, but it is the best interest of our safety and wellbeing to think that all men might do those things because they happen so frequently and have such profound effects on us as people.
Do you know what that kind of treatment feels like?
Let me give you a hint: It’s nothing like having your feelings hurt because a woman suspects you of being sexist. That suspicion is self-preservation, because if we don’t suspect that a man might sexually assault us, we are blamed if he does because it’s our fault for putting ourselves in a “dangerous situation.”
Sexism is a woman fearing that a man will degrade, assault, or kill her. Sexism is not a man feeling sad because a woman thought he was sexist. Get your priorities in order, and condemn the system and the men who do these things, not the women that they harm.
would it be inappropriate for me to tell you to ‘man up’ at this juncture?
but man up
Oh look I have an opinion!
This ‘sexism’ thing is some complex shit. It’s a bunch of people whining about how society operates. And no I’m not talking about the fact the a woman makes 73 cents to ever dollar a man makes which is a big problem from my standpoint. I’m talking about the ‘the’s no such thing a a slut and a woman dosen’t deserve to be raped and society is playing against the victims’ thing. Because to be quite frank they can have it coming to them sometimes. There are rules that society has made to prevent you from being obscene or hurt and if you break these rules and then except no blame for the situation you kind of irresponsible. I have seen some people come up with ridiculously radical comments on posts that are about how to get away from an attacker, which is a comply legit topic because sometimes bad things happen and people do things that are wrong, including women.
And if you want to be treated like an equal treat other people nicely, oh yes even those men. Because if you play them out to be a villain, I can’t completely blame them for being one.
Now stop being bitches.
