Mansplaining isn’t just the act of explaining while male, of course; many men manage to explain things every day without in the least insulting their listeners.
Mansplaining is when a dude tells you, a woman, how to do something you already know how to do, or how you are wrong about something you are actually right about, or miscellaneous and inaccurate “facts” about something you know a hell of a lot more about than he does.
Bonus points if he is explaining how you are wrong about something being sexist!
Think about the men you know. Do any of them display that delightful mixture of privilege and ignorance that leads to condescending, inaccurate explanations, delivered with the rock-solid conviction of rightness and that slimy certainty that of course he is right, because he is the man in this conversation?
That dude is a mansplainer.
dear every fucking man ever.
OMG. I’ve lived with one of these and I didn’t realize why I hated it so much until now.
My dad. And my brother. And pretty much every other guy I’ve ever known at some point or other.

living life fast and furious on the internet

Creep shaming is probably one of the most insidious and anti-equality things you can do. The ability to label men as “creepy” is just one privilege that women enjoy, and a constant source of fear of ostracizing that all men must fear in our society.–
“Men are afraid women will laugh at them. Women are afraid men will kill them.” -Margaret Atwood
Reblogging for the Atwood quote, which is showing its truthiness right here.
so, women have privilege because we call men creepy. ok. that makes sense…in backwards land.
creep shaming. bahaha. baha. BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA.
here’s teh thing, cis dudebros.
stop raping us in disproportionate numbers and stop assuming we’re your sexual property. also, stop cat-calling.
and we’ll magically stop ‘creep shaming’ you.
it’s funny how i don’t creep shame guys from my church as they are comfortable with the mode of physical contact i am and they treat me like (gosh) a human being, not a vagina. ( i realize thatn ot all churchdudes are like this, i’m just citing mine).
commentary is relevant as fuck
“creep shaming”… that’s a good one.
Did you see that? Creep shaming is ONE OF THE MOST ANTI-EQUALITY THINGS. Wtf?
People I don’t creep-shame:
My men friends who aren’t creepy
People I ‘creep-shame’: that dude who turns up at my bar, follows me around, and informs me of how he used to be scared of me because he thought I was ‘a dyke’ but now he knows he can sleep with me (because he’s seen me with other men) he wants to get to know me. And other creepy dudes.
reblogging for commentary
Will never not find comedy in this concept.

What is GODDING?
Godding is telling a person “You’re God” in order to short circuit the false dichotomy created by the dialogue with God which causes people to see it as an external force, rather than an internal system for communication with the shadow, with what’s not known of the self or what’s been repressed.
The concept of God and its usage is different for everyone, but here I refer to when one talks to themselves and says “I want to know what I should do next,” and a voice says to them, “Maybe you should _______”. For some, this is never identified as God, however, for many especially in a primarily monotheistic culture this internal dialogue is assisted by the identification of the inner 2nd person as God. God here is a compressed, monovocal form of the multiplicity of unconscious, which often through imaginary/inner work is revealed to be made of a number of entities which have different needs. Some of the more common form of these entities are covered in Jung’s work on archetypes. When I say to someone “You’re God,” ideally while looking them in the eyes, I’m looking to cause the idea of the separateness of God’s being to be understood as false. I can’t be sure this will happen, and so it’s quite a chaotic move, one that I’ll be continuing to understand as I go into the streets and tell different people they’re God, Christians and Atheists, etc. I’m going to handle it a little less mysteriously as time goes on, the first few times I simply walked up to a stranger, said “You’re God,” and walked away. One man, standing outside of a liquor store called out desperately to me as I walked away, “What do you mean?” A worker in the McDonald’s drive-thru laughed and I drove away. As I go through each encounter using these words, I’ll write more and begin to ask more about its effects on the person spoken to, as well as myself, asking them about their background in religion and prayer. I’ll also be experimenting in the future with telling people “You are a Word.”
Peace, or whatever you want,
How Everyone Can Help Occupy Wall Street Movement
The mainstream media coverage is starting to focus on Occupy Wall Street movement with ABC News covering NYPD macing female protesters. The video is available on Youtube and OccupyWallStreet.org A quick google search will turn up about 1,000 blogs covering the nonviolent protest, centered around voicing the needs of 99 percent of the American people.
Occupy Chicago, sister to the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City, is a movement to raise political consciousness among the general public, showing that the government makes the decisions that affect us all simply do not have our best interests in mind. 99 percent of Americans are governed by the 1 percent of the superrich class. We live this every day: in the broken justice system, the widening class gap and increased poverty and joblessness, corporations considered as people, corruption in politics and police, a lack of health insurance, unpopular wars waged in our name, and how the US perpetuates inadequacy world wide.
This protest is for everyone from the college kids in debt to their eyeballs with no job prospects, the out-of-work teachers who are watching their rights dwindle, the union supporters waiting for work, people who are laid off, the single parents who are out of options, the people who are ignored. We are all the 99 percent.
Their demands, our requirements for our society are breaking the chains that shackle us. We have only one demand: an ultimatum for a better life.
· Ending capital punishment is our one demand.
· Ending wealth inequality is our one demand.
· Ending police intimidation is our one demand.
· Ending corporate censorship is our one demand.
· Ending the modern gilded age is our one demand.
· Ending political corruption is our one demand.
· Ending joblessness is our one demand.
· Ending poverty is our one demand.
· Ending health-profiteering is our one demand.
· Ending American imperialism is our one demand.
· Ending war is our one demand.
If you agree with these and want to help, there are so many ways to take a stand against the 1 percent of America who is making all of the decisions that affect your life. Involve yourself and take it back!
