It’s hilarious how trans activists love to call radical feminists “worse than mras” because it’s SO ironic. Both MRAS and trans activists prioritize male-bodied people in their activism and have the audacity to call females oppressors. It’s literally the exact same thing. But nah WE’RE the MRAs because we *gasp* put women who have been oppressed their whole lives first in a movement based on women’s liberation! How callous and cruel of us!

Done with the whole pop star feminist shit

Norway's closely watched prostitution ban works, study finds | Reuters


A study commissioned by Norway’s government shows that criminalizing the purchase of sex has DECREASED trafficking and has NOT caused violence against women to increase, as some have claimed. Men who pay to sexually abuse or otherwise use women, also known as “johns,” have been criminalized in Norway since 2009, following in Sweden’s footsteps.

Opponents of the Nordic model like to say that criminalizing the purchase of sex will make it more dangerous and push the trade “underground” - despite the fact that there is zero evidence to back up these claims and that, in truth, the illegal sex trade thrives under legalization. This myth persists, thanks to this oft-repeated misinformation.

The study is timely as the Canadian government has recently put forward a bill that, if passed (which it most-likely will), will target demand - and criminalize pimps and johns.

Deep Green Resistance is a radical /roots-oriented feminist organization. Men - as a class - are waging a war against women. Rape, battering, incest, prostitution, pornography, poverty, and gynocide are both the main weapons in this war and the conditions that create the sex-class women. The freedom of women as a class cannot be separated from the resistance to the dominant culture as a whole.


well this arrived on my dash at a convenient time



my mom has been a cop for over 20 years and she is the one who constantly warns me about police aggression and young male cops and told me that if you’re ever alone on a rural road and a cop throws their lights on to put on your four ways and drive to the next gas station before stopping because so many cops are scum and it’s not worth the chance of getting hurt. the fact that SHE feels the need to tell me this shit scares me to death



please do not let ferguson die out like everything else big does. do not let this die out. do not let this continue on for three days and then everyone forget about it. do not let this happen.

queue this post up 3 days from now, a week from now, a month from now, a month from then. make sure even if you forget your blog will remember.

No mirror is safe

“The bottom line is that saying there are differences in male and female brains is just not true. There is pretty compelling evidence that any differences are tiny and are the result of environment not biology,” said Prof Rippon.

“You can’t pick up a brain and say ‘that’s a girls brain, or that’s a boys brain’ in the same way you can with the skeleton. They look the same.”

Prof Rippon points to earlier studies that showed the brains of London black cab drivers physically changed after they had acquired The Knowledge – an encyclopaedic recall of the capital’s streets.
She believes differences in male and female brains are due to similar cultural stimuli. A women’s brain may therefore become ‘wired’ for multi-tasking simply because society expects that of her and so she uses that part of her brain more often. The brain adapts in the same way as a muscle gets larger with extra use.

“What often isn’t picked up on is how plastic and permeable the brain is. It is changing throughout out lifetime

“The world is full of stereotypical attitudes and unconscious bias. It is full of the drip, drip, drip of the gendered environment.”

Prof Rippon believes that gender differences appear early in western societies and are based on traditional stereotypes of how boys and girls should behave and which toys they should play with.

Men and Women Do Not Have Different Brains, Claims Neuroscientist (via thegendercritic)

To say nothing of the countless ways we gender socialize children from birth, often without even realizing it. For more on this, I highly highly highly recommend the book Delusions of Gender by badass social psychologist Cordelia Fine.
