Figured I'd put this up, as the old one went ka-poof.
"Politician" is the occupational equivalent of "Florida".

That person needs to use the right version of "you're." Seriously, unless yore an idiot, you should know these things.
Does anyone take Donald Trump seriously, anymore?

It pisses me off that some of my friends state to eachother “oh, don’t show her that because she’s a feminist” as if it’s a bad thing.
I can laugh at pictures just fine, thanks. Don’t bring my stance on women’s rights into this. Just because you’re narrow minded doesn’t mean that you have to assume I am.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/due-process-neil-macdonald-1.3446739

Context: Right now up here, a former prominent CBC Radio host, Jian Ghomeshi, is on trial for sexual assault. His lawyer is, of course, doing her job by cross-examining witnesses and presenting evidence contradicting their testimony. This has certain people all abuzz about how not automatically believing claims of sexual assault and instead trying to introduce doubt about them somehow violates Canadian values and Charter rights, even though Ghomeshi's right to this is called due process and is guaranteed by said Charter.

And so I, like the author of the article, quote from A Man For All Seasons:

Quote
Roper: "So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!"

More: "Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?"

Roper: "I'd cut down every law in England to do that!"

More: "Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned 'round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man's laws, not God's! And if you cut them down, and you're just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I'd give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety's sake!"
Quote from: Jordan Duram
It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote

#BelieveWomen, eh?  Riddle me this: if a woman claims she was raped by another woman, and the other woman denies it, which one do you believe?

A right wing Christian group in Australia tried to destroy a LGBTQ dance for gay youth by buying out all the tickets so the kids couldn't pick up any...

...but the campaign wasn't selling tickets, it was a crowdfunding campaign.

And the bigots funded the dance.  ;D

The hashtag is about how women should always be believed and asking for evidence of a rape is misogynist.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

But if you're going to be a misogynist no matter which one you disbelieve, you might as well be a correct misogynist.
