In Daily News, best-selling novelist Nicholas Sparks has been accused of racial, religious, and sexual discrimination in a federal lawsuit brought on by the former headmaster of a private school in North Carolina cofounded and funded by Sparks and his wife. Among other allegations, the complaint says the author sought to block the recruitment of black students and teachers, and supported the bullying of LGBT students.”

be critical of Anita Sarkeesian all you want but if the fact that she had to cancel a speech at a college because a student threatened a mass shooting isn’t a huge red flag to you about how very much alive misogyny is then you need to get the fuck out of my face

"Can we officially call this terrorism? Because I am calling it that. Because it’s exactly what this is and what it has been from the beginning. This organized, dedicated, on-going, online harassment is terrorism directed at women in an attempt to silence them. And when women don’t shut-up, the threats escalate.

Will law enforcement please start taking the targeting of women online seriously?"

"I’m not scared of desperately uncool cultural reactionaries like Jack Thompson or anti-witchcraft Harry Potter burners. I’m scared of the people who do hold cultural power, who have the loud voice, who are, in fact, the cool kids, but think they’re embattled underdogs. I’m scared of the people who think that because disco was “taking over music” they had the right to “fight back” bullying and attacking disco performers and fans.

I’m scared of people who look at someone like Zoe Quinn, an individual who makes free indie games, or Anita Sarkeesian, an individual who makes free YouTube videos, and honestly think that these women are a powerful “corrupt” force taking away the freedom of the vast mob of angry young male gamers and the billion-dollar industry that endlessly caters to them, and that working to shut them up and drive them out somehow constitutes justice. The dominant demographic voice in some given fandom or scene feeling attacked by an influx of new, different fans and rallying the troops against “oppression” in reaction is not at all unique. It happens everywhere, all the time.

But let’s be honest: It’s usually guys doing it. Our various “culture wars” tend to boil down to one specific culture war, the one about men wanting to feel like Real Men and lashing out at the women who won’t let them. Whenever men feel like masculinity is under attack, men get dangerous. Because that’s exactly what masculinity teaches you to do, what masculinity is about. Defending yourself with disproportionate force against any loss of power? That’s what masculinity is."

Answer
  • Question: What you described is communism or socialism. Do you think capitalism is tied to male supremacy? - savant-idiot
  • Answer:

    witchbornwitch:

    Here’s a relevant quote by Maria Mies:

    shamelesslyunladylike:

    Definitely.

    The connection between patriarchy and capitalism is not a question of what came first and what came later. It is the exploitation and oppression of women by men which is the fundamental base for both systems. Today I would not talk of two systems but rather as one capitalist-patriarchal system. I also do not use the model of “Man the Hunter” any more to express how these two systems are related. I rather think that capitalism is the latest avatar of patriarchy. Therefore one cannot separate the struggle against patriarchy from the struggle against capitalism.

*Apparently, the word “No,” is a sore spot for some men when they don’t succeed in getting a woman’s phone number.

Detroit police arrested a man who did not take it well when a woman rejected his advances at an event over the past weekend. Instead of moving along, he shot and killed the woman, and five other people were injured in the process.

Flynn said that he decided to terminate Manney based on an Internal Affairs investigation, and while he would not say whether the former officer should face criminal charges, he did acknowledge “errors of judgment, but no malice” in Manney’s handling of the confrontation. “There’s got to be a way for us to hold ourselves accountable absent putting cops in jail for making mistakes,” he said”

Let me repeat what the Police Chief Flynn said

"There’s got to be a way for us to hold ourselves accountable absent putting cops in jail for making mistakes"

Making a mistake, that took the life on an innocent unarmed mad. We must hold ourselves accountable because the cops don’t know when to not shoot an unarmed man

Here’s your Milwaukee Police Department

"If we think of the douchebag as a social identity as much as an accusation, as a subject with a distinctive persona locatable within the categories of race, class, gender and sexuality, then we find that the term carries a remarkably precise definition.
 
The douchebag is someone — overwhelmingly white, rich, heterosexual males — who insist upon, nay, demand their white male privilege in every possible set and setting.
 
The douchebag is always a white guy. But he is more than that. The douchebag is the demanding 1%, and the far more numerically significant class of white, heterosexist men who ape and aspire to be them. Wall Street guys are douchebags to be sure, but so is anyone looking to cash in on his white male privilege.
 
This narrowness of categorization — perhaps unique in the history of America’s rich history of racial and sexual slurs — is what makes the word douchebag such a potentially useful political tool."

Catfishing the Catfish: Writing, Stalking & Wanting to be Heard

By now we’ve all read the article that momentarily distracted Twitter from tweeting about John Grisham, The Guardian piece, subtitled “An Author Confronts Her Number One Online Critic” could more accurately be called “An Author Stalks a Blogger, Is Amazingly Not Arrested, Plus Makes the Internet…

I always appreciate Laura Ruby’s insight. Also she has amazing hair.
