Women, let me tell you something that your friends and many guys will not. Your tattoos are ugly. We do not like them. We respect you less for them. We think you’re a pawn without a sense of solida…
This is why we need feminism. What a misogynistic and clearly poorly educated moron! There is so much wrong with this I don’t even know where to begin. Having tattoos does not dictate the kind of person you are, nor does it define your worth.
First of all this idiot is claiming that HIS opinion, is the opinion of every male in every society, which is beyond absurd. Tattoos, in many cultures, symbolize not only beauty, but spirituality. So that trumps his reasoning of “tattoos are symbols of prostitutes.” Tattoos have been used for thousands of years in hundreds of different places for many many reasons. Its amusing that Western society is just about the only one who demonizes tattoos and sees them as taboo, whereas the rest of the world in fact views them quite differently. ALSO, assuming that women with tattoos are “easy to conquer sexually with minimal effort” is not only complete bullshit, but extremely enraging. What you do with your skin does not determine your sexual preferences. So assuming that women with tattoos are “loose, easy and likely diseased” makes you the most idiotic person on the planet. That’s not old fashioned, that’s just moronic.
I could go on and on about this. The fact that someone else thinks they have ANY right to dictate what is attractive or right about another persons body is beyond wrong. This guy is clearly has some serious issues regarding women, and thats really sad to me because he came from one, and could possibly be a father to one some day.
We need feminism because there are actually people who agree with this mindset. There are people who believe they are right, and we need to stand up and tell them just how wrong they are.
/rant. Sorry this just pissed me off completely.
JUST WHAT THE MOTHERFUCK.
Read the comments and get even angrier
Wow… people actually AGREE with him… this makes me sick.
Bro gave himself away when he called his tattooed ex-girlfriend a skank. Someone’s bitter.

That’s the absolute best reason to get tattoos: to scare off dumbasses like that guy. I’m very happy with the results!

Fuck you, Hashimoto.
gil won-ok halmoni and kim bok-dong halmoni are currently in japan speaking to audiences there about the experiences they suffered at the “comfort stations”.
for reference, a few posts i’ve written about “comfort women” below:
“When Masayoshi Matsumoto joined the Japanese army in 1943 and was sent to occupiedChina as a medic, he thought he was taking part in a righteous war to free Asia from the yoke of Western imperialism.”
it’s like freire’s whole thing about the oppressed becoming sub-oppressors in the first stage…
BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE IN LONDON (partic visibly muslim people South London/Woolwich area)
Please stay safe. If you live in Woolwich, please avoid going out if you can. The English Defence League are calling their members in all parts of the country to take to the streets and they are throwing missiles at police around the Woolwich area.
When news broke of the severe punishment facing Wilmot over a science experiment, she received widespread support from thousands of people across the country; including former NASA engineer Homer Hickam.
Hickam’s famous memior – Rocket Boys – was turned into a film called October Sky, starring Jake Gyllenhaal. He can identify with Wilmot’s situation; he himself had the police called on him for a science experiment he conducted as a young man.
As a show of support, former NASA engineer Homer Hickam awarded Kiera a scholarship to attend the United States Advanced Space Academy (ASA), a branch of the famous Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama!
True story, I did this once and got cursed out by a policeman who yelled at me over a loudspeaker and told me to get the fuck back in my car. I was terrified he’d think the turtle was a bomb or something and shoot me. I hope the turtle made it across the road okay, but I wasn’t going to die for him.
It is not much of a secret that I am one of those mean, feminist types. Not only that, but I am one of those mean feminist types who views everything I watch through a feminist lens, using my experiences as a woman to analyze the media I consume, analyzing this media with jaded, somewhat tired eyes at how the stories of men are always front and center with no regard for the stories of women. Therefore, it was a bit of surprise to me when I began watching Spartacus, and saw a show that not only told the stories of men themselves, but also showed these same men in the supporting roles of women’s stories. Very rarely do we see such a balance, and it’s one of the reasons why this show is just amazing.
But while I gladly sail on the S.S. Nagron with steady hand, and my heart writes love letters to Ilithyia on a daily basis, nothing has amazed me more than the transformation of Crixus from cocky, undefeated champion of the arena to the wise and giving man who has learned that sometimes fighting means nothing more than standing side by side with the woman he loves to offer support as she comes into her own. In the course of two seasons, Crixus has become one of the most feminist-friendly characters in the history of television, and it has been a marvel to behold.
This meta will always be one of my favs - best parts:
“Not only did Naevia become of the hero of her own story, but Crixus became the supporting character of herstory.”
“Naevia declares that she’ll be the one to have his head. The horror and fear on Crixus’ face tells the entire story, but he does not stand in the way. This man, this monster-sized killing machine who could gut Ashur like a fish in five seconds, understands that this is something Naevia must do, without Naevia having to explain it. This man, who is not necessarily the brains of the Spartacus army, easily realizes that this is not his war to wage. He steps aside, and merely watches as Naevia steps forward to slay the first demon that holds space in her dreams.”
“It is beautiful to see the undefeated Gaul not only become the supporting character, but CHOOSE to become so, and in no way considers this to be weak. That right there is the most important aspect, that Crixus does not view himself to be weak because of his love and respect for Naevia. He rightfully understands that relationships must have balance, must be a partnership, that it is his duty to stand beside Naevia and let her blaze her own path, just as she stands by his. ”
A Virginia couple was shocked to find a police officer in front of their home when they returned from running errands, but they were even more surprised by the reason for the cop’s visit— to question whether or not they were in fact their children’s parents.
“Well, the customer was concerned because they saw the children with your husband and he didn’t think that they fit,” Keana told the news station. “And I said, ‘What do you mean by they don’t fit?’ And I was trying to get her to say it. And she says, ‘Well, they just don’t match up.’” Are you effing kidding me? If I, a dark haired, white woman was walking through the store with adorable ginger children, do you think anyone would be concerned they weren’t mine? No, they’d assume they looked like their father, or perhaps I was a babysitter, or even better, mind their own fucking business. It saddens and frustrates me that so many people are still so ignorant in
Oh, goodness, I cannot even imagine the heartache that something like this would bring to a multiracial family
Government assistance in America is invisible until black people receive it. Then it becomes racialized, demonized and stigmatized.
