the ceo of abercrombie and fitch has a lot of nerve saying that ugly people shouldn’t wear his clothes when he looks like a caucasian orc from the lord of the rings
I AM SO FUCKING SICK OF SEEING THESE KINDS OF IMAGES AND COMMENTS.
I’m actually disgusted. This photo was posted on see more’s facebook page. Now, I don’t remember liking this page, but occasionally it pops up on my newsfeed. Usually its generic “share this guy” posts, but this one caught my attention because of the picture.
I wish I could say that the argument on the left (caused by my outraged comment) is where all the stupidty ends. But it really isn’t, The other comments are DISGUSTING. I actually feel sick to my stomach right now because of them.
HERE ARE SOME PRIME EXAMPLES OF THE KINDS OF PEOPLE THAT ARE COMMENTING ON THIS:
THIS IS WHY FEMINISM IS NEEDED. THIS IS WHY RAPECULTURE IS SICKENING. THIS IS WHY GROWING UP IN A WORLD FULL OF OVER SEXUALISED WOMEN AND PATRIORICHAL VALUES IS FUCKING BULLSHIT.
“hahah shes fat she should be glad for the rape!!!” NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. Seriously these VILE people are what I cannot stand most about the world. I am so angry right now I can’t.

I need to add that this is why INTERSECTIONAL feminism is needed, because this wasn’t just a joke about rape (which is awful enough), it was a joke about fat woman, a fat black woman, which one of the commenters had to make note of. There is a special type of stigma for fat Black women, which is a big part of where this type of vitriol is coming from.
Feminism is not enough if it does not address fat-shaming/fatphobia and racialized misogyny.
PS all the people thinking this shit is funny can go fuck themselves.
Millions of middle aged men and women will dust off the old toy wands
the browning pages of books long forgotten
strange cloaks, black rimmed glasses that havent been worn in decades
and those men and women will hold vigils in the streets
as a soft, sad melody echoes around the crying faces
And the halls of Hogwarts will spring to life again
as those same men and women go home to their families
and hold their children, who don’t know who Harry Potter is
It’s eight in the morning and im crying thanks tumblr.
This… Seriously?! Not yet. I’m not ready. Stahp it tumblr.
A bus driver who tried to rape a passenger at knifepoint chose the wrong victim, a court heard yesterday.
The woman, an off-duty US navy sailor, knocked the knife from his grasp, broke it in two, bit his hand, wrestled him to the ground and put him in a stranglehold between her thighs.
Having beaten him into submission, she left the bus and reported the incident to her commander.
she broke a knife in half
“wrestled him to the ground and put him in a stranglehold between her thighs”
you can’t even fucking trust bus drivers
My 2 cents on the matter.
