"less developed countries"? you mean "more exploited countries"

Those meeting people dating-advice things always suggest joining a club, like I’m in elementary school and signing up for after-school activities. Are there clubs for adults besides AA and group therapy? No, I didn’t think so.

catandkitty:

do you know why feminism has a horrible image?

i’ll let you in on a secret here, it’s because people hate women

(via missharlowharlot)

"Can a thin person have body image struggles? Can a thin person be at war with their self-image? Can a thin person hate to look in the mirror?

Absolutely.

And does that suck?

Absolutely.

But the difference between these negative feelings and fatphobia is this: The only person worrying about whether or not I’m meeting beauty standards is me.

And that’s not the same for fat folk.

When you’re not thin, other people on the beach actually do take offense. When you’re not thin, people really do think that you shouldn’t be in a bathing suit. When you’re not thin, people really do make your body their moral obligation.

And while your internal struggle is real and significant, the point is: You might hate your body, but society doesn’t.

That’s thin privilege."

I'm one of your friends and I just wanted to tell you that I watch porn, and stuff, and I understand that you don't agree with it and that we are all entitled to our own opinions. But I wanted to let you know your words have hurt me. And maybe you think it's a good thing that I feel bad about it but I really didn't need another voice (in or outside my head) telling me what a horrible person I am. Especially from a friend

i don’t understand why you are on anon if we are friends.  we can totally discuss this privately and in terms established by our acquaintance.  but if you want a response like this, then fine.

"entitled to our own opinions" only works when it comes to stuff like favorite foods.  when it comes to pro-porn vs anti-porn, it is not opinion time.  this is because one side supports the dehumanization, subordination, humiliation, and abuse of an entire class of people.  that’s not an opinion, that is a disgusting viewpoint that must be eradicated.

porn is terrible, and so is the bdsm i have criticized.  if you want resources as to why this is the essential truth, then here:

porn:

bdsm:

if you were my friend, you would know that i am 100% for women. this means i am for their protection and liberation as a class.  i do not tolerate misogynists, rape sympathizers, or active consumers of practices that harm women, aka porn, prostitution, and kink culture.  

if you honestly believe that liking porn is okay, and that my criticisms are out of line because it’s a matter of opinion, we cannot be friends.
