this is the real first page of a real book by a real Fox News host

Girls were girls and men were men. Why is patriarchy—on top of its other faults—so aggressively creepy? I mean, even when it doesn’t have to be. When there’s nothing to be gained. Longing for a mythical time when female human beings were defined as children and male human beings were defined as adults, in comparison to them. Creepy. Gross.

I might losing my mind wondering if this passage is technically, objectively poorly written or just so tasteless (is “moral tastelessness” a thing?) that it appears so.

Samantha Bee talks to Peter Schifffinancial commentator and CEO of Euro Pacific Capital Inc. 

 ”His father is Irwin Schiff, a prominent figure in the U.S. tax protester movement, who is currently serving a 13-year sentence for tax evasion in Federal prison.”

“Historically speaking, animating female characters are really, really difficult, ’cause they have to go through these range of emotions, but they’re very, very — you have to keep them pretty and they’re very sensitive to — you can get them off a model very quickly. So, having a film with two hero female characters was really tough, and having them both in the scene and look very different if they’re echoing the same expression; that Elsa looking angry looks different from Anna being angry.” — Lino Disalvo on animating Frozen, explaining (essentially) why they removed all the female supporting characters and replaced them with men. [[edited for accuracy]]

Yeah, I call bullshit.

It is sexism.

"“My female boss is mean to me at work” is not the same thing as centuries of institutionalized, systemic discrimination. If “beautiful women can get whatever they want,” then why haven’t we elected one president yet? “Sexism against both genders is wrong” betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of what sexism is. Any individual of any gender can be prejudiced or discriminate on a face-to-face level, but only one gender faces the glass ceiling, the ongoing, legalized regulation of their bodies, the significant wage gap for doing the same type of work, the deeply-engrained and consistently reinforced stereotypes about their being less aggressive, less capable and less intelligent, and countless other obstacles."

On being wrong about reverse racism

dearcoquette:

Just because white people have always been the dominant cultural group in most societies does not mean that reverse racism doesn’t exist. If you look at this as an example; a white couple get told they “don’t belong” in an Asian restaurant, that is discrimination against a ‘race’ or group of people in society, which is “by definition” racism. So, yes, reverse racism does exist and white people do experience discrimination and segregation, just not to the horrifying extent that black people, and people of other races have and still do. Racism doesn’t have to be institutionalised or on a mass scale to be classed as racism.


Stop. Just stop. You’re wrong about this. So, so wrong.

A white couple in America being told they don’t belong in an Asian restaurant is not an example of racism. At best, it’s an example of racial discrimination. (Most likely, though, it’s an example of a white couple acting like assholes.)

Racial discrimination is not the same thing as racism. They are interrelated concepts, but they have separate definitions. People trying to color the world with eight fucking crayons often get confused at the distinction, but those of us who came to class with a Crayola 64-Pack understand that actual racism involves more than just anecdotal instances of racial discrimination.

Actual racism involves a system of race-based group privilege, and not to break it off in your ass, but your assertion that “white people have always been the dominant cultural group in most societies” is the real example of racism here.

Do you have any idea how ridiculously privileged that statement is? The fact that you’re capable of saying something that stupid while trying to define reverse racism is evidence of how insidious the real thing can be.

Disagree with me all you want. Feel free to keep throwing around a bullshit term like “reverse racism” as if it actually means something, but you’re fucking wrong about this — semantically, conceptually, and motherfucking spiritually — you’re just plain wrong.

YUUUUUUUP reverse racism racism white privilege people are idiots

New Mexico Bill Would Criminalize Abortions After Rape As 'Tampering With Evidence'

If the writers of this bill consider the fetus a person and therefore worthy of protection under the law…can a person really be “evidence”? Or is the fetus then considered a “witness”? Because I’m pretty sure fetuses can’t swear in on a bible. And if you make a fetus “evidence” then it’s not really a person, is it? It’s a thing.

UGH. People are idiots and this is one of the worst things I have ever heard, ever. Top 5 at least.

Waiter, Can You Have The Manager Take His Hate Speech Off My Tab?

As a lesbian couple exited The Stingray Café, restaurant owner Ed McGovern handed them a hastily scrawled and poorly spelled letter condemning their love for each other because apparently their committed relationship is ruining lives.

He says he gave them the letter “out of love,” but anyone who has the nerve to say something like this to other human beings is just a jackass in my book.
