What’d you expect from the girl whose song is about validation from men?

raise your hand if you’re not surprised. at all. seriously why are any of you surprised?

The frightening thing is that, like most of their other campaigns against women, they see themselves as just warriors fighting for what’s right. This is primarily because they firmly believe that any woman who speaks up on women’s issues is completely disingenuous and only doing it for the purposes of self-promotion, and that any man who does is looking to get laid, because they actually cannot possibly imagine a scenario in which someone would genuinely give a shit about women.
 
Members of this board, as well as “Men’s Rights Activists” in general, tend to go apoplectic at even the most mild implications that women might be human beings. For them, this is simply “not allowed” and must be punished swiftly and severely, as they appear to believe that feminism is the one obstacle in the way of all these pathetic neckbeards getting their pick of supermodel girlfriends who obey their every whim. The goal is to make it as uncomfortable to speak out about misogyny and women’s issues as possible, which is why they go to the wall in terms of harassing women like Emma Watson. At the end of the day, this is the crux of it. It would be sad if it weren’t so vile.

Teenage Girl Blossoming Into Beautiful Object: Full Story

Holy—

“Ashley has really developed into quite a striking assemblage of physical attributes that are found to be sexually attractive in our culture,” said Parker’s uncle Keith Hayes, expressing astonishment at how his niece had steadily matured from a precocious youth into a shapely, ravishing thing devoid of intellect and personality. “It’s hard to believe that she used to be that little girl [capable of subjective experiences] that I remember. Now look at her—she’s such a lovely vessel for displaced sexual frustration and voyeuristic lust, just like her mother.”

“Seems like just yesterday she was this creative 7-year-old kid, pretending her Barbie was the first woman president,” Hayes added. “My, they grow into little more than consumer goods so quickly.”

Marveling at the rite of passage that all females make from girlhood into entirely disempowered objecthood, Hayes expressed confidence that the 17-year-old would one day become a highly prized physical possession for “one lucky guy.”

The Onion’s feeling sassy today

yes.

Twilight may be trash but at least they cast actual native americans to play natives

That is a serious burn for a LOT of movies.  I’m not sure we have enough burn cream for this.

Your anger is so delicious and so justified (What the flying FUCK, Cathy?).

Also, I can’t believe I’ve never noticed this until now, but the whole Julia/JuliaN name thing can’t be a coincidence.

That’s a point!  Huh, I hadn’t noticed either.

Another great big honking sign that Cathy’s marriage is a huge mistake?

i feel like the only people who would headcanon cecil and carlos to be in their early 20’s are people who aren’t in their early 20’s themselves

stable careers in your early 20s?? OH if only

Seriously, Carlos is a Scientist with enough authority to be leading a research team. In what world would a 22-year-old even be finished with graduate work?

(Carlos the boy genius?)
